“Very good, quick lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

A co-worker and I stopped by Assaggio for lunch right when they opened for the day. I found the prices to be a bit pricey for most selections (even the specials) but there were some moderately/fairly priced sandwich options, which I what I selected. I had the Eggplant Parm sandwich while my co-worker had the half lasagna/half salad lunch special. The eggplant sandwich was served on delicious fresh-baked bread and came with a side salad (their house salad dressing is delicious!). Co-worker seemed to enjoy her lasagna and also commented on how much she liked their salad dressing. Service was good, the free bread and butter provided was great, and my bill was just over $11 for a nice lunch. We got there at 11:30 and it was getting pretty packed by the time we left around 12:30.

“Franchise Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

This was very ordinary and one should be careful for anything with "grease" was greased out of slight - I had the crab legs as an appetizer and the oil oozed out of them. Corkage permitted. Pasta and clam sauce was like out of a box - fish was Ok but pasta side was bland. Cocktails good - particularly apple martini Deserts were lacking the creme caramel was odd - with chocolate rind on the outside and the creme caramel tasted as if it has been thickened with corn starch. Cheesecake seemed to have come from grocery store. Save your money - cook at home.

“Canned food”

Save time and money, buy your own processed food from the super market. The food here is little more than boxed creams and prego.

“Great food, service is spotty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner here with my wife and son. Hostess was atrocious, looking to see where we could be seated when there was only one table occupied. Kept taking calls instead of asking one of six idle servers to seat us. Once seated, things got better. Caesar salad is made fresh at your table. Food was well prepared and the portions were large. Desserts were tasty as well. A bit pricy for the service provided, but overall a good experience.
