We were fortunate to be invited to a private function at Assaggi. It was feast! Choices for starters were prawn and avocado platter, beef carpaccio or baked melanzane. Mains were fried sole, spinach cannelloni or the superb signature veal dish. Desserts included nona's cake (a bit like tiramisu), panna cotta or a selection of gelati.
It was a wonderful afternoon of food and drink. Sorry, can't comment on the price but the food was excellent. Well worth a visit.

It's a small Italian restaurant that were clearly very popular with the locals, we nearly didn't get a reservation for Friday evening. The atmosphere was quite noisy, we enjoyed it very much, the food was excellent!

int of Italian kitchen. Serves ok food. Open kitchen is fun to watch. Prices too high for quality. Ok for quick bite if you are not too much bothered.
