We love witnessing this epicurean joy and we love being part of it.
We welcome reservations as well as walk-ins, and we do welcome, well-supervised kids.
Really enjoyed our Sunday lunch with friends. Food was overall really tasty.
Never disappointed with this local gem. This place sets the bar for bars with exceptional food to back it up.
Great atmosphere, the food was yummy and the desert was fantastic!
The service was slow and not very friendly. The place is quite noisy and everyone has to talk loudly to be heard over the music. The food was good but not great.
Best place to eat in Mornington . Always enjoy the food and attention to service@nd presentation .
Often very noisy ,find this a little difficult , however it’s one of our favourites for sharing with friends .
Nice clean food, no unusual tastes all authentic and healthy delicious food.
Absolutely impeccable service, food & drink. Stylish bar & restaurant with a great atmosphere. Love the food- something to please everyone that you can share or have on your own. The drinks menu is extensive with lots of great local & overseas wines to choose from plus amazing cocktails! Will always keep coming back!
Love Assaggini. Have been here before, but decided to take my vegan friend here because of the extra menu, with lots of options. The food was delicious, the drinks tasted great and the service we had was outstanding. I'm not sure what her name was but she had green hair, was very friendly and gave brilliant customer service. I love the food here, Italian is my favourite and it's done well.
I love Assagini. The food is delicious and the wine list always exceeds my expecations.
Fantastic restaurant, beautiful food, great options for vegans, good atmosphere and will be back!
simply amazing! renovation is excellent. Cocktails and food are the best ive tried for a long time.
Overall the meal was good. We were told that the food would come as and when it was ready which is the case with tapas, we didn’t however expect to get our side order of fries first and well before the rest of the food. By the time our mains were served the fries were cold.
The changes to this local gem just enhanced the experience of a Friday night meal.
From the immediate welcome down to the last bit of my John Dory and my husband's pizza ,it was a delight and the service outstanding.
This will definitely become our local!
Friendly staff. Excellent vegan menu. Would highly recommend and we’ll definitely be back soon.
Assigning was recommended to us, however, our experience was not as we expected. The service was spasmodic and the platter were not really of share size. When we arrived they did not have any record of our booking, so we were a little disappointed with our experience
We're regular weekend visitors but were disappointed midweek that several favorites were "sold out". Revamp and extension very good, but no revamp of the toilets was a big surprise and disappointment....needs doing badly to be in keeping with the rest of the venue.
Tasty food, top notch value for money. Would highly recommend.
Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. Food is best to share as you can taste a great mixture off the menu. Drinks are spectacular especially the different delightful cocktails.
Very busy, has 2 sittings and you'll need to book. Very easy to do on-line with minimal hassle.
Fantastic food but far too noisy. They need some wall furnishings that will absorb the noise.
Unusual delicious food. Good variety but
would love have liked more fish choices.
Pasta was excellent.
Good food, but too noisy to maintain a good conversation. Some sound-deadening treatment of walls and/or ceiling would be appreciated.
Went with 4 friends, was easy to book online rather than calling. All meals were tasty and some of the best I’ve had of those dishes. Staff were kind and very knowledgeable of the dishes.
Vegan friendly too!
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, which was provided via a voucher from a friend for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Food was very good and we enjoyed the sharing part of it. Staff very friendly.b
We wanted a midweek 6 PM dinner to celebrate an anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised to find Assaggini offered a vegan menu and even better was the experience of the beautiful vegan dishes. Fortunately we booked as the restaurant was full on Wednesday night and although busy we were served at the right time, the staff were very pleasant and the food was beautiful and well presented. We will certainly return.
Great food and wine, friendly atmosphere, great restaurant!
Amazing and delicious good vibe and could not fault the food
The food here is delicious. The tapas style is perfect for those who can’t decide what to have.
Never disappoints! Great food and service.
Can’t wait to come back in October for the new menu and introduce some friends
We ordered a number of different tapas, all good, especially the scallops. We also enjoyed a lovely King Valley Proscecco.
Great food, location and service. Will go back! Loved the idea of share plates.
Delicious food, with good service and reasonably priced.
Food has never diminished an ounce in standards of quality, love and craftsmanship. The service is phenomenal and so genuine, combined with a lovely ambiance that is as warm and welcoming as the staff. It is the all-time favourite haunt of my father and I, and I could not ask for a better Father's Day experience. Thank you to all the staff for curating the pinnacle of food culture!
An excellent restaurant in Mornington just off Main Street. A stranger we met at a Mornington Peninsula cellar door, recommended Assaginni saying that it is one of her favourite restaurants in the area. So glad she did & that we took her advice. Excellent restaurant, pleasant & helpful staff, lively ambiance & simply stunning food! Everything we had was wonderful, but the desserts would be amongst the best I have ever eaten, including those enjoyed in many hatted restaurants.
I really wish this restaurant was close to me in Sydney, I’d be a frequent visitor!
The food was brilliant. Everything tastes as you'd hoped with no odd flavour surprises. It's the best meal we've had on the Mornington Peninsula.
We were seated in front of the bar with one of us facing the bar with staff inside carrying out their duties, this made it not very enjoyable staring into the bar area all night watching people washing dishes.
The main meals came in a rush as we were getting close to the 8pm sitting time.
Always great food and service here - a favourite of ours where we are never disappointed!
Our favourite mornington restaurant we will be back
Would receive 5 star but for the 2 sitting times 6-8 or 8 til late - bit restrictive for us, but clearly works for restaurant
My wife and I went to Assaggini to cap-off a wonderful day together on the peninsula.
The food was magic and service is amazing. We will definitely go back.
P.S. The dedicated vegan menu is awesome.
We recently visited for a girls night out. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food is amazing and so were the cocktails. It was a little noisy but that was more about the table of people we had sitting next to us. It was a great atmosphere. Can’t wait to visit again :)
