The staff are always wonderful and the food is amazing
Tables too close near window for couples felt like I was having 3 conversations
Great service and price - food yummo especially the pork belly
Love this place. Food always perfect, Barry is a great staff member and I love even more that is in my home town.
I had my Boss with me from NSW for a business dinner and he couldn’t stop flaming about how good it was.
Always love my time here! Amazing staff, and best shoe string fries EVER!! Espresso Martinis are a must!
The food was very nice as usual and the service was very polished, which is a great attribute which will set Assaggini apart from many eating establishments in Mornington. The only problem was that it was very cold in the restaurant, which was partly due to the fact that there weren't many people there at lunchtime on a Wednesday. Temperature of the environment is a very under-rated aspect of the dining experience. Thank-you,!
Great food great atmosphere. Despite hearing the service was poor we found the service was good
It was my second time dining at Assaggini and it was just as nice. Excellent options for dietary requirements.
Slightly disappointed as was very rushed. Had a 8.45pm booking and service was forgettable, not personable and rushing us out the door as kitchen was going to close. Service really let the restaurant down in my mind and probably won’t return which is sad as I am a local.
Absolutely delicious food, friendly staff and a lovely place to dine.
Great! Service, food, wine and venue all fantastic...run by pros
10/10 would reccomend the vegan menu to anyone, regardless of wether they are vegan or not! delivious cheese board, and delicious pizza! to be able to enjoy a real italian style pizza with actual cheese on it was amazing and well worth the extra couple of dollars. Also, the aperol spritz was delicious!
The food was extremely good but the service was poor and our waiter was less than welcoming.
Excellent food and service. Great vibe and atmosphere.
Great food, drinks & service. What more could you ask for. Never disappoints.
We have been dining at Assagini for a number of years now and have never been disappointed.
Always superb meals, we love that they have a plant based gluten free menu in addition to their normal menu. Cocktails are always delicious and the service is warm and friendly.....Defintely one of fav places on the Mornington Peninsula : )
Great atmosphere delicious food and great service.
we had a lovely evening at Asaggini last Friday night. Great ambience and delicious food. Will definately return.
Great variety of foods . Best for sharing - enjoyed our cocktails too. Very pleasant staff.
Always love a lunch at Assaggini - especially with their plate sharing. I always seem to want what someone else gets, so this way I don't have to worry! Mind you, I can't seem to go past the antipasto platter and the pork belly, which is always sensational. Top that off with a good wine list and great service means I will be back.
Great vegan menu. They were very helpful in working with me to fine something I could eat with my food allergies.
The food, venue, service, staff in fact everything was amazing!! This will be my new haunt xx
Perfect for a quiet after dinner drink and a light meal.
Well definitely be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Assaggini, they couldn't have been more accommodating, catering to all our needs all night including helping with a very special birthday cake and subsequent celebration.
Way too many hard surfaces, corresponding to high noise levels.
1. Food and wine was excellent, table service pleasant and courteous and attentive.
2 Ambience was very poor:
The restaurant looked beautiful and inviting at first glance.
Booked on line and it gave the impression that it would be crowded: whilst busy, we weren’t offered a table in a less crowded section but were sandwiched between two other tables, all too closely located ( our neighbours had trouble getting our from their table without bumping ours), and exposed to the front door draft every time it opened (it was a freezing night outside).
Noise throughout the restaurant travelled because of the hard surfaces everywhere.
3. Prices were expensive.
We were warmly greeted which set the tone for the whole evening. The food and the service were fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend the restaurant to anyone.
I loved the aspect of sharing the food but was unsure how big the portions would be! They are quite substantial portions and are great value for money! So tasty and we were even offered to take the leftover food home (which we of course did). Can’t wait to go back!! Special mention goes to the scallops 🤤
Had a very bad experience as our food order was not actually put through the system so we had to wait and then question as to why our food hadnt come out only to be told that the lady forgot to put our order through. Pretty disappointed to be honest as this was our favourite venue to come and eat and the food is amazing however we wont be coming back as this is not something we should have to deal with
Food is always outstanding and the cocktails are delicious , but we felt very rushed we knew what time we had to leave and some of the wait staff kept trying to remove food before we’d even finished. Kept hovering over us, that part wasn’t very pleasant
Lovely food, horrible service! Was told by every staff we need to be gone before 8pm. Was extremely rushed and pushed out before 7pm! Very disappointing!
Horrible service, very rude. Some staff were lovely. Hit or miss.
The polenta chips, calamari were good, the arancini excellent but the pork belly tasted a bit underdone and I was seriously sick the next day. Also was very noisy and because out table was close to front door the cold breeze was awful.
I’ve had the pork belly before and it was excellent but this time tasted off.
We got together for 3 family birthdays had a great table on the window. Food is amazing so tasty and a wide selection to choose from. Staff very attentive Bellissimo!!!
Service is great - very friendly. The vegan dishes are some of the best around. We always tend to overeat here as it's just so tasty.
Fantastic service and yummy food! The risotto was perfect for a wet winters night!
My friends had the vegan menu and were very happy with what they ordered.
The size portions are amazing and the food is fresh and nice! So much so that we are looking at booking for 20 this Sunday :)
Food was amazing. Service was exceptional. Highly recommended.
Loved it! Amazing food, impeccable service. Can’t wait to come back.
Great surprise. My dish was beautiful, had the fish. The wine was lovely and the service was superb. We had 2 kids with us and the guy in charge our table was very helpful and prompt to them as well.
It’s was a while since I’ve been back to Assaggini and it was so much better than I remembered. Great service from the manager, staff and the food was excellent. Awesome sharing plates, really tasty with nice decor and ambiance near the bar section. Highly recommend.
