Fantastic food and service. Would highly recommend
We love coming back to this local little gem!!
Food, service and wines selection all good and since the new renovations the noise level has improved.
We had come to Assaggini for a special family occasion, and were really disappointed with the service we received.
Two dishes came to our table that we didn't order, which we told the waitress about, but were still on our bill when we went to pay. Two of our orders were missed and had to wait for an hour for them to come, despite having told the waitress about it and she said 'the lamb takes a while to cook'. She didnt follow this up with the kitchen, and it wasnt due to cooking time, it was because they were forgotten and not followed up sooner. Very disappointing after we were referred to come to you and expected a better experience.
The food and ambience was fabulous.
The service was a bit slow, initially.
But that was understandable as they were extremely busy because if the live music event.
The waiter pushed us to order and the food arrived very quickly , it felt like we were on a production line , get em in and get em out!
Excellent "Mezze" style dining, good choices of piatti to share and comprehensive drinks list. Entertainment was part of The Mornington Winter Music Festival with Jourdain & Jack really setting up a great night. Recommended.
Beautiful food and a lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately our arrogant waiter and the toilets put a dampener on the experience as a whole.
Great vegan options. Platter was awesome and filling.
Very friendly and efficient staff. The menu is excellent. A very relaxing and pleasant atmosphere.
We had a lovely time here. Definetly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic vegan menu, great italian food! Highly recommend this reataurant
Delicious and innovative vegan menu. I will be visiting regularly!
amazing place, food atmosphere service. this place is crazy good.
What a magnificent dinner. The wait staff was fantastic and we had the best Vegan meal ever. Thank you
5 of us had booked for an early dinner on Saturday night. We are from out of state so chose based on reviews. Even though the restaurant was not full at 6 the service was very erratic. We ordered drinks first and food shortly after that. We were served 2 courses after a short wait with still no sign of any drinks arriving. When I politely enquired, the waitress replied in a very rude and irritated tone that they only had 1 bartender and that they were getting drinks out fast as they could.
I felt the food was overpriced for tapas sized small serves and the baked cauliflower was very under cooked and had almost no sauce.
Lastly... I’m not sure what the obsession with goji berries are but was bewildered by their abundant use in an Italian style menu!
I’m sorry but I wouldn’t recommend or return based on our experience.
A fabulous location for a group to gather and feast superbly!
The service was spot on with regular yet unobstrusive attention.
The food was fresh and delicious with moreish combinations.
Lovely Bistro feel, waiter were a bit rushed and hassled to get our order in and hard to get their attention when they took our glasses by mistake but generally a nice night, food was very good and value for money.....
We chose Assaggini because of the plant based menu and it did not disappoint! We were spoilt for choice with a full vegan menu on offer and all of the dishes we tried were fantastic. Good service and a nice atmosphere.
Great food wine and staff . Fabulous lunch ! I shall be back very soon
The place is excellent and the staff also excellent but the food was quite bland.
It was at the end of a very busy Mother's Day and they had run out of some of the food on the menu.
The food disappointing
Initially service was good but once the waitress went on her break we were left with no service at all. Even when I left the table and asked for service we did not get any. Very poor.
The food was lovely and the staff very friendly. We will definitely be coming back.
Great food, amazing cocktails, waiters were very knowledgeable about everything on the menu and recommended some great stuff ! The vibe was fantastic and we will definetly be going back!
Great food having been here on many occasions the service was fantastic and I love the new layout with the extension they have done .even though i have been in it before was down the bottom area last time of the new layout up the top this time plenty of room only thing I can fault is it sometimes gets abit loud hard to hear echo`s but otherwise everything fabulous will keep coming back thanks
I just love that they have a vegan menu. Great service and lovely, warm and inviting setting.
My friend and I shared three dishes and loved them all. Next visit, which I hope will be soon
I won't be sharing the scallops with parsnip purée - will be having them all to my self!
I have heard when this popular restaurant is full the noise level is very high. My recommendation is to choose a less popular time. We went early and it was not an issue.
I am recommending this restaurant to friends.
Great food and service. Quality of food has improved since last few visits, which is good for our favourite local! Still need to get those toilets redone though....spoils the over all new look/feel of the place.
Food was delicious, cocktails were really good (probably had too many) atmosphere was fun.
Great food, great venue just a little noisy but still a sensational to eat.
Food was perfect loved that it was shared so we got to try more desert was amazing will definitely be back
The vegan menu is amazing and highly recommended. I've been here for dinner a few times and each time it was delicious.
Great food and vibes
A fantastic vegan meal, served well. Very professional
Loved it! Food, staff, drinks and atmosphere were all fantastic. Lots of vegan and gluten free options to pick from. Will be back
Impressed with quality and value for money of the food. Service and knowledge of waiting staff about the menu was excellent.
Ambience was pretty good. The only negative was how close the tables for two are together. Difficult not to tune into the conversation at the next table.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant as one of the nicest places to dine in Mornington at the moment.
Look forward to returning for more great tapas!
Assagini never disappoints and now that they’ve expanded it’s easier to get a table and less crowded. One of our fave go-to’s for casual, relaxed and delicious dining.
We really enjoyed our experience. The restaurant was recommended to me because of the separate vegan menu, and it was probably one of the best vegan menus I’ve seen. The food was amazing. The service was super friendly and prompt. The setting was great too. We loved the cocktails, but wouldn’t mind seeing more on the list!
Overall a really great experience, will definitely be back and recommend to friends :)
As always, greeted with a smile. Great ambiance and music. Food was excellent, great place to impress clients or the wife on date night.
Was not impressed with the fine print when booking online that we had to be finished by 8pm for a 6.30pm booking. Very rushed! Staff were not at all happy and forgot drinks ordered, we also had to wave staff down several times for service. Smiles don’t cost anything. Think this restaurant should have stayed smaller and happier before extensions!
Always the most amazing food. Always 100%. The staff were fantastic always. We will always come back
