“Exquisite Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

A very big well done and thanks to the chef and all the staff for the wonderful dining experience.

To start off with, the restaurant is very trendy with a cosy atmosphere and soft background music. Even the restrooms are impeccable. And, parking is available on request, which is very good considering the busy location in which this restaurant is situated.

Service is very good and the staff is really welcoming and friendly.

The appetizers and the amuse bouche offered on the house, as well as the linguine with sea urchin roe and blackberries with chocolate fondue, which I had for main course and dessert, were so great to such an extent that you wouldn't want them to finish.

In my opinion portions are just right and even though choice of food is not one of the most extensive, it is still varied because you find from pasta to pork to rabbit to beef to vegetables on the menu. Also, this testifies the genuineness of the food served at this restaurant.

This restaurant is a bit on the expensive side but it is definitely worth every cent. Menu changes weekly and I'd really like to go to this restaurant again to try out something new. And I believe that all food lovers should go to eat in this restaurant at least once.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Assaggi is one of the best restaurants i have been to on the Island ... The staff is extremely helpful and friendly; the ambience is lovely and the food simply divine! We went there to celebrate a friends birthday and we started with drinks - we had complimentary amuse bouche as well as warm bread and serano ham ... We all had different main courses - i myself had the veal whic was spectacular! I am still raving about it 2 days later! As a dessert I had the chocolate fondant - i have had chocolate fondant from all over europe and this was by far one of the best ... it is worth every cent you pay ... looking forward to visit agai

“It just keeps getting better and better with this chef the sky is the limit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

In my opinion this restaurant is the best on the Maltese Islands, each visit just keeps you wanting to eat there even more, this visit saw two amazing starters Tortelloni with Ox tail and Rabbit and crunchy quail legs which were divine, main course was a lovely 1 Kilo T Bone to share which melted in our mouths, this cut of meat is like the Rolls Royce of meats, desert must have been good also as my wife left nothing but a clean plate, thumbs up to patrons Ivan and Amanda not to forget Mel and the very good Head Waiter, keep up to good work;
