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

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

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.
