A good selection of Italian disches, and a respectful offering of wines. Very classic in preparation and style.

We've been going to this restaurant for a few years now (whenever we visit Oahu) and it's been consistently very good. My husband is gluten-free and they have pasta to accommodate him! The staff is lovely and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere.

Another great find on the traveling through an area and pull up local restaurants on GPS. The atmosphere was crisp white table cloths, excellent serving staff, but comfortable and relaxed. We showed up in shorts and sandals and were treated like royalty. The food was out of this world. The wait staff prepared our Ceasar Salad fresh at the table... More

I'm a great fan of Italian food and if I lived here, I'd visit at least once a week. It's not inexpensive but I ask for a go-box even with a small plate...the portions are more than generous. The menu is extensive so you're sure to find some favorites, as well as some tempting new dishes to try. I love... More

Good food but don't visit if you're on a budget. Pretty expensive. Order the small plate vs large plates as they are big! Great service and food.

Assagio has many options to choose from. Everybody in your party will find something they love. The flavors are great; lots of garlic in many dishes. The portions are big. Suggest splitting the meal with a friend: order one pupu, order the cesear salad that they make at your table, then order the large size entry and have them split... More

I have decided to eat at Assaggio once a week because it is so good. I can't ever recall being disappointed in any meal I have, except when my guest ate all my leftovers. It can get pricey though. I spent 45$ on dinner for myself last time.

The food is too heavy and greasy, and the atmosphere is insincere. The cooks must have been recruited from Zippy's. The bruschetta is okay (who could ruin that?) and the desserts, provided by outside suppliers, are acceptable -- but overall I find Assaggio to be inferior by far to its competitor a half-block away, Baci Bistro.

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.
