Lunch or dinner....Equally delicious!!

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... read 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

We made reservations for 11 with a mix of adults and kids, and everyone enjoyed a great meal! We had the Caesar salad made fresh at our table, and it was the best Caesar salad I've ever had. The menu had a large variety of items and cooking styles, and all of the dishes were excellent. Highly recommend this place... More

SORRY ALL YOU RAVE 5 STAR REVIEWERS! This restaurant is expensive and 'yuppie'-ish, with ATTITUDE. I have eaten here twice and both times my budget was strained. I ate with many friends who are pretty well off and everyone seemed to think it was oh-so-wonderful. The wine was VERY pricey too. I love Italian food, love it, love to cook... More

Had the specials of the night, which was clams, shrimp, linguine, asparagus and bacon served in a large bowl. Very good meal and loved the hot bread they served. the meal was good but thought it to be a little too expensive. Two large parties in the restaurant on Sunday night and it made the atmosphere and little less than... More

I really enjoy Assaggio's. Tonight I had the Cesar Salad and Chicken Piccata. Both were delicious and so flavorful. The service was great, the atmosphere is good, a bit pricey but the food was wonderful.

Had a wonderful meal with our family n Kailua. The clams are wonderful and everything looked great. A ton of options for everyone. The portions are huge and they always have Gish specials. You might want to make a reservation.

Very good quality italian food. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and it has a good look to the restaurant. The portions are really big, I normally cannot finish my meal so you will have a lot to take home. The food is pricey, but if you want a nice Italian dinner with family or if you are on a... More

Average food, being Italian usually we don't go to italian restaurant abroad but we gave it a try. Nothing special, might be appreciated by non-italian people. Quite a stereotype, and pricey. Generous portions.

The service was good and the food was really quite good. Italian always seems odd to me in a beach town, but sometimes after a day or two you want something different. This place does a good job of fitting that bill with a relaxed ambience that is a great change from the Hawaiian dives you will be grabbing quick... More
