Beginning to end the food and service was near perfect. Each dish, and we had many of them, was cooked to perfection and well crafted. You cannot think of this as typical Mediterranean fair. That would be like saying French fries is French food. Assaggi takes Mediterranean to a level I have never experienced before. Fun, casual or dress, and... More

We headed here for dinner before a play downtown. Everyone had a different entree, but there were raves all around. We shared warm citrus olives as an appetizer. The portion easily satisfied the table. Next came a beet salad which was so yummy. It had beets, burrata cheese, hazelnuts and arugula in all the right proportions. Entrees went from fish,... More

I just moved to the Detroit area in May and asked everyone I met for their favorite Italian restaurant. Being Italian and having worked in 5 star Italian restaurants in the past, I am quite picky. So when a good friend had a big birthday last month I wanted to try Assaggi as it came with some great recommendations and... More

I am so impressed with this gem of a restaurant right in our backyard! We had a dinner on Sunday night that would rival any top New York restaurant. There were a variety of interesting appetizers and salads (eg. white gazpacho soup and grilled romaine with toasted hazelnuts). We were celebrating a special occasion and both the filet mignon and...

We had dinner last week and had a delightful experience. Our server was discreet yet friendly, made sure that everything was to our liking without hovering and knew the answer to ever question we had about the menu without hesitation. Our aperitif cocktails were HUGE! They stock Campari and made a perfect Campari/soda. My friend thought her special preparation vodka... More

I love this place for many reasons. The food is wonderful. Remember to make a reservation, you won't be able to get in without one most nights. The owner is caring and dedicated to the restaurant and is passionate about making sure that you have a great time and enjoy your meal. The attention to detail of every dish that... More

We brought our daughter here for her birthday. First time coming here. The back patio is absolutely beautiful and has wonderful decor and ambience. The food is amazing. Our waiter, Rob, was probably the best waiter I think I've ever had, super nice and helpful!!!! What I think were the owners (husband and wife) were very friendly. Highly recommend!

We stopped at Assaggi before going to see "American Idiot". Our group ordered scallops, seafood stew, and gnocchi. All the entrees were delicious. The calimari app was awesome. The staff were very attentive and accommodating. Did not give 5 stars because the restaurant was very warm.

My wife and I ate on the patio this evening. She had the Chicken Francese and I had the Gnocchi in cream sauce. Both entrees were perfect as was the service. I highly recommend Assaggi. Josie and George are perfect hosts.
