Lovely food! Was amazed at the vegan options and everything was pretty much gluten free if needed. Service was lovely and atmosphere was great! We’ll definitely be back!

Incredible service levels provided by the staff. They read the booking notes and even wished us a happy anniversary as soon as we were seated. Really sharp pricing and again, friendly, personal and exceptional service.

The preamble about ‘how it's done here by the waiter was a bit paternalistic and patronising but the food was great and we had @ lovely night

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.

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,!

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.

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!

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 : )

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.

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.
