We enjoyed lunch here recently and arrived early for nice window tables. Staff are friendly and serve well. Portions are large and great value. Smaller Entrees are $22-25 and larger $28-35. Even for two people the Small is big enough. Pastas are great and Fish/Seafood...looks good too! Good luck and enjoy!More

I usually don't frequent Italian restaurants outside of Italy. But, in this case we were tired of eating Asian. We felt it was time for a change. Surprisingly a pleasant one. The cuisine was creative and delicious and on top of being well priced and...generous. They also had a good bar and wine selection at reasonable prices. The atmosphere was casual and service was very friendly. Location was perfect in the Mall with plenty of parking.More

The food was very good. The Caesar salad made table side was absolutely fabulous. Very fresh and the dressing just perfect snd yummy. The entrees were more than plentiful snd offered as authentic Italian food that we good find on the island as far as...chicken snd veal dishes go. The Marsala was lacking in mushroom sauce , but the chicken with vegetables was delicious as was the eggplant parmigiana and shrimp marinara. We were pleasantly surprised to find tartufo for dessert which was delicious as was the peanut butter cheesecake special. Highly recommend this restaurant.More

Very disappointed with our meal at Assaggio Restaurant. One granddaughter ordered Spaghetti with meatballs. That was apparently the best meal. I ordered minestrone soup and a shrimp salad. Although the shrimp salad didn't have the traditional thousand island dressing it did have a sweet dressing...that was bad. The minestrone soup however was nothing more the vegetable soup with a few pieces of macaroni thrown in. It had NO flavor. The Chicken Alfredo "tasted funny". The wait staff were friendly.More

Just tried to eat at Assaggio’s at ala Moana. 3 times they had to take back my order as they got it wrong. They have taken a nose dive since before March. Will never return.

Nice Italian - makes a change from the many Japanese restaurants. This place is busy so be sure to book. Servings are generous. Wait staff are very efficient, but do need to smile a little more, they seemed to just be doing their job with...little joy. Great food.More

You won’t go wrong if you’re looking for good Italian food. The food is always delicious and the service is very good. We had a wonderful dinner last week. From our table side Caesar salad to our main course everything was really good. Probably the...only let down was the Spumoni ice cream. If your expecting a true Italian Spumoni ice cream, skip that one. Over all was great meal and I highly recommend this restaurantMore

Tucked away in the underground carpark entrance to the Ala Moana Centre is one of the best Italian restaurants we found in Oahu. The restaurant is well laid out and tastefully decorated. All the staff we encountered were friendly, helpful and efficient. the menu offered...a good range of Italian fare to choose from. Our meals were absolutely beautiful - fresh, hot, made with good ingredients and very tasty.More

We truly enjoyed our Italian meal in Hawaii. The service was excellent. The hostess was friendly and sat us down right away. Our waiter was wonderful: helpful, friendly, funny and attentive. Every staff member was extremely nice. The food was very good: I had veal...francese and my husband had veal parmigiana. The past was cooked perfectly too. The cannoli was different but very good. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!More

Once seated we were given a loaf of hot sourdough bread plus butter to kick off our dining experience. The only negative here was the fact the bread was so delicious you consumed the lot & couldn’t fit in an appetiser moving straight to the...mains. At Assaggio all mains are offered as small or large servings. My wife ordered a small scampi meal & me a large veal dish, both were first class & plentiful. The wine, a bottle, was also of quite reasonable quality (white) & not expensive. The service was contrary to a number of other reviews very good. The total bill, inclusive of a 29% tip was an even $100.More

To start with ,the bread is moist and dense with a crusty exterior. Served fresh from the oven. Delicious with butter. Tastes like something grandma would pull out of the oven. Lasagna was outstanding. So was the fettuccini with meat sauce. They offer a small/large...portion on most pastas. (Lasagna only comes in large.) This was our second visit. Will definitely be going back again next time we're craving Italian! Looking forward to enjoying our leftovers tonight.More
