The food was extremely good but the service was poor and our waiter was less than welcoming.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

We had a great time the restaurant was very busy, found the wait staff assigned to our table to be quite abrupt at times, I know they are busy but need to appreciate we are on a night out trying to catch up with friends therefore may take our time to order etc.

They have a huge vegan menu with amazing food. Loved the brownie. But I would come here early around 17:15. When it hits 18:00, the restaurant gets packed and the noise is crazy loud. You won’t be able to have a conversation or hear the waiter. The price is average but large portions.

We had a small party of five with two vegans. The food was superb and we opted for six shared dishes and dessert. The dishes were served in an ordered sequence at a rate that clearly showed that the waiter was monitoring our progress. The vegans particularly enjoyed the baked cauliflower. All the dishes were very good

We have been there a few times now . Last Thursday the 11 th July was the last time we dined the food was delicious and service was very good as usual . The time before I invited my daughter and son in law to come there , they enjoyed the food and the friendly staff also . The management are very professional there compared to many other places I have been to . I would only say to others it is worth giving it a try , best to try and pre book as it is always busy . I see that as a positive .

Love the food at Assaggini and the fact that it has shared plates is a bonus. It is delicious food that you can just keep nibbling on, ordering more if you're still hungry. We had the antipasto followed by the pork belly, which is my favourite. Learning from past experience, we stopped at that so we could fit dessert in. And I'm so glad we did! Dark choc mousse bombe Alaska with raspberry sorbet - soooooo good. The service, as always, was fantastic, and the ambience conducive to a laid back Sunday lunch. We had requested a quiet table if possible, as my 84 year old dad is hard of hearing, and got what we asked for. Nothing is ever too much of a problem at Assaggini.
