My boyfriend and I went to the mall and were craving something Italian. We looked on here and saw good reviews so we stopped in. It wasn't busy and service was quick. First off ... The garlic knot hype is totally true. They were delicious. Full of garlic! I had the chicken franchese which was delicious. Lemony and garlic how... More

The enticing aromas as you enter the restaurant promise good things to come. Very nice large fresh crisp salad comes with the dinner. Very big portions on the pasta. Complimentary garlic knots are tasty. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I often eat here because we enjoy the food and service. Today I had the Meatball Parm Sandwich with salad and my wife had a slice of pizza with salad. Both were excellent and reinforced why we go there often. The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful.

Have had many great meals @ Assaggio's. Authentic Italian fare at reasonable prices in family friendly venue. Friendly , accommodating management and staff. Have hosted several parties catered by Assaggio's ; never been disappointed, nor have my guests. Comprehensive Italian menu: personal favorites: Penne a la Vodka, spaghetti and meatballs, spaghetti and sausage.

Our trip to Assaggio was definitely worth the one hour ride. We had read the TripAdvisor reviews and, as always, we appreciate others' honesty. That being said, yummmm! We started out with their absolutely mouth-watering garlic knots- oh wow!! So good, I could've lived off them alone. Loaded with gaaaaalic!! Husband ordered the calamari which was light and fresh. I... More

Don't want to knock this place - it was sufficient, and service was fine. No complaints, but nothing to rave about, either. The lasagna was basically just a big ball of cheese, which sounds great until you realize you have to chew and swallow. Veal parmesan was adequate. The garlic knots, included in every meal, were an explosion of butter,... More

Sitting at the table attempting to choke down the Spagetti with meat sauce but it's so dry and flavorless. Stopped on the wY home from the beach cause it had 100 good reviews and only 1 bad. It's in a strip mall next to a dry cleaner and taste as good as it sounds. The one bite spot was that... More

Love, love, love this place! I am all about supporting local businesses and this is one of my favorite local Italian restaurants. The ambience is very cozy. The staff there is very helpful and polite. We just had their Chicken Marsala, Chicken Parmesan and Penne Assaggio...along with a few delicious garlic knots. All were excellent. My husband said their Marsala... More
