“Northern Italian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was right next door to our hotel (Andra). Northern Italian food is different from the usual Italian food. Had short ribs and polenta which was great, daughter had steak which she loved. My husband had lasagna which he loved. I tasted it and didn't care for the cinnamon and nutmeg in sauce, but the is common in northern Italian food. The service was not great. It took a while for staff to take our order and never brought my daughters salad or wine. When we ask about her salad we were told she didn't order one but later told by waitress that she couldn't read her own writing and offered to bring one. The food was ready and we declined the late salad. Never did get the glass of wine. Great location, good food but service lacking.

“Great food, Great service....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

My family of 6 turned up on a busy night without a reservation and the place looked packed and we were not hopeful. We met at the door with a smiling face and asked to wait a couple of minutes and we were handed menus to pass the time. We were very quickly seated and the service was first class as was the meal and the ambience. All in all a reasobably priced great meal with great service. Well worth a visit when in town.

“Nice Italian, but not Outstanding”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We were referred to Assaggio by our hotel concierge. The restaurant is nice, menu is a typical Italian. My daughter had a pizza and said it was "ok". My veal parm was not as good as many others I've had, and the pasta with it was not a generous portion. Service was pretty good, but nothing special. The value was good, and there was nothing wrong with the restaurant, just not super special.

“Romantic Little Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We enjoyed the lovely, romantic feel to this restaurant. The owner is so friendly and greets all who come to his place. The wait staff is well trained and helpful in making food choices. They even offered to make a dish that was not listed on the menu for us! Great wine, lovely decor, and excellent food made our evening very enjoyable! It is located just a few blocks from Pike Street Market and is easy to access by walking from many of the downtown hotels.
