Consistantly excellent – After ten years of eating at this restaurant I have yet to have a bad meal or have even my water glass go empty. The consistancy still amazes me.
For the price - give me a break – The menu was generally unoriginal and unspectacular, except for the price, which was exceptional given the offerings. The ambiance was lacking; the restaurant was crowded and noisy. Our neighbors could enjoy every word of our quiet conversation in addition to their food. Finally, we were seated next to a door, making our dinner a chilly one. If you want to pay way too much for unmemorable food, try assagio.
Best Italian in Seattle! – You can't help but love the way the service people make you feel when you walk through the doors of Assaggio - from the sweet owner to the dedicated server, Assaggio delivers in all areas. The food is innovative yet delectable, the service top notch and the desserts and wine list are to die for. I would highly recommend Assaggio for any special event or business meeting.
Don't order the pork – Our dining experience was average and we have not been back since. If you decide to give them a try, I would not recommend the pork as it was very dry and tough and when we told the manager on the way out, they did nothing to encourage us to return (so we haven't).
Again....Excellent experience – Brought an out of town business colleuge, and again had an excellent experience. We did not have reservations - hostess was very friendly, took our coats for us, and seated us promptly. This restaurant has great energy and an eclectic mix of people. The side caesar with your meal is not to be missed - very good! Wine list is amazing. My guest was impressed - we shut the place down! Last to leave...didn't want to leave. Thanks again Assaggio!
Not recommended – I took my sister out to dinner at Assaggio for her birthday only to be disappointed. LOUD atmosphere, slow service -- waited FOREVER to give our orders and to have our water refilled. Overpriced for blah food. The only good thing was dessert -- it was pretty good.
Take my word for it, dont go here – Just like you, I was browsing city search, searching an Italian restaurant. Although I saw bad reviews I thought to try it anyway. It wasnt what I expected, it was completely loud and dark. I told the blonde girl at the front that i had reservations, she asked for my name but right when I opened my mouth to tell her, the phone rang and she completely cut me off in the middle of me talking and turned to answer the phone. How rude! She could have at least waited until I was done talking or better yet excuse herself. The waiter introduced her specials to us so quickly (it seemed that she had more important people to attend to). The food was mediocre, Ive had better. Overall, this place is super SNOBBY, rude staff and the food is nothing special. I sound really bitter but thats what happened.
Bravissimo! – I love this restaurant. My boyfriend took me on our first date here. We had reservations and were seated immediately. It was crowded and quite loud, but I can see why it's such a popular place. The special was halibut and it melted in my mouth. The appetizers are delicious. We were too full for dessert, unfortunately, so we will have to return for that. Beautiful interior and impressive, respectful service. Best Italian restaurant I've ever been to, I highly reccomend it, but make reservations!
