I was pleased to return to Assaggio after a 2 year absence, and find the place as wonderful as I remembered. The place is a great upscale Italian eatery with the unrushed ambiance of the old Country. The food is wonderfully prepared and a delight. The flavors, spices, and aromas are old world, and great. Owner Mauro warmly greets every... More

The food was something to savor and enjoy. Each dish exploded in fantastic flavors. We started with deep fried rice balls in a rich & yummy red sauce. The dressing on the Caesar salad was divine, best we've had in years. We shared the risotto special with shrimp, crab & scallops and it was heavenly. This meal was the most... More

We were taken by business friends who were regulars and received a very warm reception including hugs which made us feel very welcome. The food did not disappoint and the whole experience was very memorable. Very tasty, very good

Real Italian restaurant, which is something!! We went there twice while in Seattle, once for lunch, once for dinner. Both times the experience was awesome! Pizzas and pastas are in the $12-18 range, definitely worth if you consider the area, the atmosphere, the food and the service. The owner (Italian) is a real nice guy, he welcomed us inside, introduced... More

This was right next to our hotel. We were looking for something good and close after a day of sightseeing. This did it for us. Awesome greeting and service from the minute we walked in. The food was great as well.

Very quaint atmosphere. Super delicious food! Had a wonderful dinner. You can order your choice of 3 different pastas so you get quite a selection. Everyone at our table had a fabulous dinner. Superb wine. Great wait staff. Highly recommend.

My wife and I had just arrived in Seattle after a cruise. The hotel we were staying at recommended the restaurant next door and we were cynical initially. However, as we walked by and saw some of the dishes on people's tables outside, we realized that everything looked very tasty. We were unsure what to order, and the waiter was... More

Having eaten seafood for several days on an extended stay in Seattle, we decided to go Italian. We went to Assaggio with friends and thought we were back in Italy. My wife and I had cinghiale, probably some of the best pasta we have ever eaten. Our friends loved their dishes as well. We tried the limoncello tartufu, the best.... More

I walked here from my hotel a block down. Chose it because it had outside seating. Everyone is greeted warmly, and the staff are attentive. We ended up eating here 3 times in the 2 days here. One night we ended up sitting next to the owners of a vineyard in Italy who were sampling their wines with the owner.... More
