Fairly well reviewed and referred to us by a local we trust. Service was good but food was mediocre at best. Sauce was nothing special and restaurant temperature was very warm.

Overall, very good. I only had two issues. The pasta fagioli soup was made with pinto beans not cannelloni beans, so it more like a Mexican soup. Second, the portion of meat sauce could have been more generous than just a layer over a pound of pasta. Service and atmosphere were excellent.

Assaggio's has been in this location about 10 years and I have missed it until now. We ordered the Osso Buco and it was out of this world, melt in your mouth tender, with the best pasta I have ever had. The waiter was so friendly, Tony told us everything about the items on the menu we were interested in. The atmosphere was also superb at Assaggios, we were just flabbergasted, this place is a diamond in the rough.

Had to write a review, because my wife and I had been here a few times when I would say it was just OK. But, this last time it was excellent; everything from first arriving all the way through dinner. We met some friends here and like someone else's post we had the same experience. The folks at Assaggio knew we hadn't seen one another for quite awhile and had a lot of catching up to do. We were never rushed. Our hosts had asked for a quiet table so we could talk, and we had a wonderful corner table. The service was outstanding. The Fra Diablo was as good as we have had, as was the Calamari. This was a wonderful evening with good company, good food and good wine!
