Excellent food

Our waiter was attentive and made excellent suggestions. The food servings were huge. I was very glad he recommended the smaller portion as even though the chicken Marsala was the best I have ever tasted, it would have been much too large a serving. There were two negatives. We had phoned early... read more

Food was fine. Nothing to write home about, but not horrible. Definitely overpriced for what you get. Service was good. No ambiance. Teeny bar with only three seats.

As far as Italian restaurants go, this is not great, but there is lots of food and the seafood is plentiful. Don't go there expecting authentic Italian flavored, but pasta creations. No kids menu and no accommodation for kids. Easy to get into. Food (entrees) came out in waves so the table didn't eat together which was not ideal. Expect... More

My wife and I visited Kailua Beach then stopped by to split a Dinner plate of chicken marsala for lunch best marsala we have had, heaping with mushrooms and the sauce was a little salty but addictive. Our server Kelly was spot on, her intuition of our needs precise. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the... More

Celebrated my husbands birthday! His favorite dinner always includes the filet mignon with shrimp scampi (with appetizer portobello mushrooms). Of course you can't go wrong with filet mignon. "It was deliciously flavorful!", says he. My choice, that is so hard for me to waiver from is the chicken Picante. I love spicy!!! Scrumptious! Service...The entire Assaggio team was absolutely wonderful!... More

The server was very attentive and personable. He advised the small portion which was more than I could eat and my friend who lives in Kailua agreed. The bread was fresh with a great crispy crust and butter. This was one of the best Italian meals I have had in a very long time. Make sure you don't miss out... More

We have eaten here before 5 years ago and we're very disappointed but last night was fantastic. Whatever was broken is fixed. In fact it was better than 6 months ago which was good. I had veal saltimboca that was amazing. I love that give smaller portion option which I took and brought some home. We had antipasto which was... More

I have eaten at two of the Assaggio restaurants...Lunch at the Ala Moana, Honolulu location and dinner at the Kailua location. Both have 21 styles of preparing your meal and there is a description of each so that you know what you are ordering. Lunch was a wonderful shrimp salad that was crisp and complimented with a homemade dressing.. the... More

I had the steak salad, which was tasty. My daughter ordered the pesto and pasta, which was watery,oily and bland. They served her pasta 10 minutes before the rest of the dinners. The wait for the rest of the entres seemed to take a long time. The bread was dry and served with butter, not olive oil. You need a... More
