I recently booked a table at Assaggio for my fiancé's birthday dinner. Our party was 8 in total and we were given a great space in what seemed to be the center of the dining room. I made the reservation just a few days ahead of time for a Friday evening, but we didn't have a problem. Nonetheless, the place... More

This is a busy and attractive restaurant perfect for dinner for two (or a larger group). The menu is interesting and quite diverse with some excellent daily specials. Nice range in the wine list. Lovely service with attentive staff and a very helpful front of house manager.

A few hiccups along the way but generally good food and service. Had a reservation and seated promptly. Warm Italian bread and water arrived quickly. They did not have the wine I selected. Selected a second wine and was told it was from Sicily. It was not, it was from Veneto. After we ordered we realized after listening to another... More

The menu was quite varied and offered a nice selection of options. The food was prepared very well and earned the 5-star rating that I gave it. The waitress was... More

Everything was perfect ! Mary, our waitress was very, very good. Mary knew everything about the entire menu. I had the exciting veal entree on the menu and my wife had the other veal dish that included sage, our guest had what I had. What a fantastic restaurant.

First time visit, and it was delicious. I enjoyed the shrimp and scallop over spaghetti. Enough for a second dinner tomorrow night. Sauce was just like home. Dessert was chocolate cake...A-MAZ-ING!!We will definitely be going back. Love the quaintness of the dining room. Small enough to keep it personable. Our waitress Adele was super nice and an excellent waitress.
