Stopped for lunch expecting the regular pizza, calzone menu but instead found some really excellent Italian food. I had a spaghetti and meat sauce lunch special that was outstanding, my friend had the mussels in a tomato based sauce and that was also very good. A nice selection of wines and fantastic service!

I have only ordered take out pizza and calzones (2 young kids) but their pizza is awesome and a welcome relief from most of the NY style pizza places that dominate the area. They have interesting ingredients, our favorite is the grilled vegetable with grilled eggplant, zucchini and onions. However their other pies look good too. The calzones are big... More

In my opinion this is the best overall Italian restaurant in the area. I've dined there on many occasions and it never fails to deliver an excellent experience. If you haven't made it out to this restaurant I would strongly recommend it and decide for yourself. The only negative is that the wine is pricey.

My boyfriend and I went to the mall and were craving something Italian. We looked on here and saw good reviews so we stopped in. It wasn't busy and service was quick. First off ... The garlic knot hype is totally true. They were delicious. Full of garlic! I had the chicken franchese which was delicious. Lemony and garlic how... More

The enticing aromas as you enter the restaurant promise good things to come. Very nice large fresh crisp salad comes with the dinner. Very big portions on the pasta. Complimentary garlic knots are tasty. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I often eat here because we enjoy the food and service. Today I had the Meatball Parm Sandwich with salad and my wife had a slice of pizza with salad. Both were excellent and reinforced why we go there often. The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful.

Have had many great meals @ Assaggio's. Authentic Italian fare at reasonable prices in family friendly venue. Friendly , accommodating management and staff. Have hosted several parties catered by Assaggio's ; never been disappointed, nor have my guests. Comprehensive Italian menu: personal favorites: Penne a la Vodka, spaghetti and meatballs, spaghetti and sausage.
