A few hiccups along the way but generally good food and service. Had a reservation and seated promptly. Warm Italian bread and water arrived quickly. They did not have the wine I selected. Selected a second wine and was told it was from Sicily. It was not, it was from Veneto. After we ordered we realized after listening to another... More

Assaggio's was absolutely great when we ate there recently. There were four of us and our host suggested that we dine at that restaurant and we soon found out why. The menu was quite varied and offered a nice selection of options. The food was prepared very well and earned the 5-star rating that I gave it. The waitress was... More

Everything was perfect ! Mary, our waitress was very, very good. Mary knew everything about the entire menu. I had the exciting veal entree on the menu and my wife had the other veal dish that included sage, our guest had what I had. What a fantastic restaurant.

First time visit, and it was delicious. I enjoyed the shrimp and scallop over spaghetti. Enough for a second dinner tomorrow night. Sauce was just like home. Dessert was chocolate cake...A-MAZ-ING!!We will definitely be going back. Love the quaintness of the dining room. Small enough to keep it personable. Our waitress Adele was super nice and an excellent waitress.

Cannot say enough about Assagio's. Definitely our favorite in town! The sea bass on the menu is to die for! Great service and atmosphere! Many great memories here and more to come!

We chose this restaurant for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Although we had a really large crowd they did a great job to accommodate us all. The menu options were delicious. The staff was very attentive and did a great job to keep the evening moving well.

We chose this place because of its many rave reviews. We shared NY style calamari and house made gnocchi with duck confit ragu to start. No tentacles in the calamari, the sauce "finish" made them soggy and there wasn't a hot cherry pepper to be found. The sauce on the gnocchi except for the bits of meat tasted exactly like... More
