We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. The service was prompt and friendly, and the food was excellent.

Great! Food was delicious! It was Monday,and anyway it was pretty crowded in the evening and a little noise as for me. It means that this place is very popular among citizens. We like everything: food, atmosphere and people who work there!

Cozy and nice place to get good Italian music. The place is really busy so you don’t get much attention from the staff, but they are friendly and provided a good service. All the food was great, good size and price.

I’ve been there probably 10 times and it was always an amazing experience. My boss was in town and he wanted to take me and my employees to dinner so I chose Assaggio, which was always a great choice in the past. They sat us indoors but at a table with a cloud of bugs. We had to pick bugs out of our wine all night. My pasta was cold, dry and chewy and one of my employees found a gumball-sized rock in his linguini with clams. True story. It was large and it was heavy. Mauro wasn’t there that night and I was going to tell the manager but my boss thought it was funny and told me not to bother. He left the majority of his food untouched but he took the rock with him because he thought it was so ridiculous. The whole experience reflected poorly on me and I was extremely embarrassed and mortified. I won’t be back. Ever.

we came to visit Seattle for my birthday weekend and found this restaurant for it's variety of Italian dishes. When we got there we were seated but once we were there we were rushed to order or the waiter didn't take the time to ask us any questions since we were undecisive on what we wanted to eat. He wasn't personable. Then when we got our beverage the lady waitress spilled my son's beer and didn't even bother to clean it up and it was a lot that got spilled. Sorry but this is not what I expected and paid for.

Everything is great except for the chairs. Very uncomfortable. I will only dine here again if I can sit in a booth or if they add cushions to the chairs. Please fix. Thank you

We loved this place when we first came, back in February 2019, and were looking forward to coming back. We made reservations way in advance but we were seated at a table in the bar at an area that looked like it was for walk ins. A little disappointing. We were dressed up and everyone around us was in jeans. The dress code is business casual and we always try to comply for the dining room. If I had known we’d be seated where we were, I’d have worn jeans too! While service was good, we felt a little rushed . The food is very good. Hubby asked for an item that wasn’t on the menu anymore and they made it for him without question. There are many places in Seattle that serve similar food so next time, we will probably try another.

Would have been excellent with the exception of tiny flies that flew around our glasses of wine. At one point when I picked up my glass to take a sip, there were three flies floating in the wine! We were constantly swatting them away from our table. At one point one of the employees noticed our problem and she came by with cocktail napkins to cover the tops of our wine glasses to prevent the flies from landing in our wine.

The food was very good, but something needs to be done with the fly problem.

The ribeye I had was not what I expected from an Italian restaurant, but I rarely had a ribeye in Italy that I liked. The Aperol spritz we ordered, was mixed with orange juice, which is not so Italian. They were willing to fix it, but the damage was done by then. The appetizers were delicious, the pasta and pizza my wife and daughter ordered were also delicious. The staff were excellent.

We took a last minute but confirmed reservation through OT for the 9:45 slot and arrived a few minutes early. We we informed right away that the kitchen was closing so we should make up our minds quickly. To help out, we followed kindly followed the suggestion, and made a few choices. Just a few minutes after placing our order, the salad arrived, scrumptious-looking and fresh. We picked up our forks, but before even a morsel hit the palette, the hot appetizer and main entrees arrived in rapid suggestion - there wasn't even a place on our little table for two to place them - The waiter was pleasant enough to honor my request to send them back to keep them warm while we ate a little and made some real estate for the new arrivals, but I shouldn't need to ask to send plates back. My suggestion to the business - If you want to go home earlier, just say so by shutting off the reservations earlier, so you can all relax! Then your customers can relax, too! (The pasta sampler and calamari were still tasty and not overcooked, and the wine selection suggested new and interesting, so it wasn't a wipe out!)

Excellent experience for what I consider old school Italian, with just enough twist to make it interesting. Great staff, Italian wine selection, and ambiance...it is our new "go to" Italian date night!

Service ok, food came out incomplete and incorrectly cooked. Ordered ribeye special medium came out well done, very thin/small steak and did not come with mashed potatoes or Gorgonzola/wine glaze as listed on menu, was hardly seasoned plain steak with raw fat in several areas - not worth $50. Pasta trio was good but portions were very small for $30, not good value. Bruschetta had no flavor other than water. Oso Bucco was decent though raw fat issue similar to steak. Did not stay for dessert. Pretty disappointing anniversary dinner, unlikely to return.

We choose this restaurant as it was rated in top 5 in Seattle. My food was cold. Cold pasta. Flavor was ok, but not for the $$. Felt rushed, liked I had to order and get out.
