Had a great experience at Assaggio on Thursday night. The restaurant had a great atmosphere perfect for a date night. There was a choice of either inside or outside dining. The staff were great and friendly. Everything from the drinks, the bread, salad, and filet were delicious. Highly recommended and will definitely go back!
Food was good. Wasn’t thrilled will our table location. Excellent Service.
The good and service was excellent. I had not been there for many years as I had not been living in Ct and it was as excellent as I remembered.
Good service. Server did not nor could recommend a beverage as a substitute for a beer they did not have. The food was very good. They seemed to be having A/C issues. Overall would go back.
Service was excellent, food was outstanding. We had a great time, enjoyed ourselves. Withoutquestion, we would recommend Assaggio.
Great food & drink. Outstanding service!!!
We were very disappointed with our meal and experience. Our reservation was at 7 pm and our food was brought to our table at 8:40 pm. The quality of each meal was mediocre. The wait staff was very personable and did bring us a complementary dessert for us to share.
This was our second visit to Assaggio, and it was consistent with our 1st experience. Food was outstanding; drinks were creative and outstanding; service outstanding. It can get a bit noisy if the restaurant becomes full -- and it does! -- so eating at off-times is recommended if you want to be able to carry on conversation with ease. Outside dining available; but restaurant is on the corner of 2 intersecting streets; so outside seating is along a busy street. Would very highly recommend. Only thing that could make the experience better would be a groupon to moderate the price a tad...!
This restaurant is always consistent. Never a bad meal or experience. It's our go to place when we dont want to be disappointed.
Always amazing. Ariel was amazing. Food amazing. Definitely gonna come again. Thank you again Ryan for the birthday/anniversary dessert.
I Have been to Assaggio plenty of times. The food is delicious. Our waiter was Peter and he was fantastic. He let us take out time in ordering. The service was right on the mark. We will be back
My wife and I went to Assagio for our anniversary. As we had an early reservation, we were the first ones there. We we warmly greeted by the a male and female upon walking in who were very friendly.
Once we sat down, we were greeted by Allysa who was fantastic. She was very welcoming and energetic about everything on the menu. We proceeded to order a drink and then start with the NY Style Calamari. The Calamari was fantastic.
After the Calamari, my wife and I both ordered a Caesar salad. Salad was your typical salad but needed more dressing. The dressing they use is very light and it seemed to be barely on it.
We proceeded to order entrees. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli and my wife ordered the Orecchiette with lobster meat, portabella mushrooms, spinach, & cream sauce. She really liked hers and I thought mine was good but not great. The problem I had with my ravioli's is that there is way more crab than there is lobster. After cutting each of the 4 ravioli's, I could barely find much lobster. There were no chunks of lobster meat or much lobster at all. My wife even took a bite and asked if they made the wrong dish because all it tasted like was crab.
After dinner, Allyssa went above and beyond and brought us a Tiramisu for our anniversary.
Overall, the restaurant is good and the service was fantastic. It can be a difficult location to find if you're not familiar with the area.
Servers did the best they could. Was clearly understaffed.
Our server was wonderful. Attentive and willing to meet our needs regarding the menu. The food was excellent. It was well prepared and plated in in a delicious manner. The atrium is somewhat loud and the tables are a little tight.
I love the menu choices. Food is always fresh, hot and flavorful. Service is attentive without being intrusive. I recommend the sea bass or any pasta dish!
One of the beat meals I’ve had in months. I couldn’t recommend it more!
Excellent food and drinks!
Perfect dinner for the 6 of us... Food and service were excellent! Will be back!
Food was top notch and service was wonderful!!
Very loud. Food was pricey. Choice was not favorite meal I ever had there.
It is my favorite restaurant! Wonderful staff and amazing food.
Very much enjoyed dinner. A little pricy but the pork dish was delicious.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere! Highly recommend Assaggio.
Always a wonderful experience here. Food is consistently excellent, as is the service. The only (minor) knock is that, being a smaller restaurant, it becomes quite noisy and can be difficult to hear those sitting across from you. But this has little impact on one's overall enjoyment.
we frequent this restaurant and always enjoy our experience - Cocktails are perfect!
his wine list could be a bit more expensive-
Food was great. Loud table next to us but that is not your fault. Service was a bit slow. We noted people coming in after us and left before we got our meals. All in all though, enjoyed the evening.
We had an amazing experience at Assaggio. The staff was fantastic, so friendly and attentive. Everything we ordered was wonderful, but the special sweet and spicy calamari was one of the best things we have ever eaten. The restaurant is small and intimate and we plan on definitely going back.
My favorite new restaurant, food was delicious and served very hot. Great menu, service was on point. We sat outside with a few bugs as the sun was setting but they quickly dissipated as soon as the sun went down.
Will definitely be returning!!
Dinner with friends. Great food and great service!!
VERY disappointed in both the cocktails and food. Mixed drinks were not what was ordered. After two attempts the bartender got it right. Two of us ordered lobster ravioli. Both were served lukewarm. Pasta was so firm, it almost crunched. One person ordered filet mignon; it was tough! Other person ordered prosciutto wrapped scallops with broccoli rabe and roasted red peppers. He said it was “OK” but the broccoli rabe was barely cooked and he couldn’t eat it. Not one in our party of four ate more than 1/2 their meal. We all agreed there are much better restaurants in the area.
The food was delicious. The server came to our table and, knowing it was someone's birthday, said happy birthday and I thanked her. That was it... no drink, little piece of cake, a cookie...something. We were very surprised.
Dinner was amazing and so was our server. I eoul highly recommend this restaurant.
I have to say it was perfect from beginning to end. Food, service, ambiance. They’ve changed the menu since the last tome I went and the changes are welcome. Everything was delicious! 10/10 It is a loud restaurant, for those who are sensitive. But it’s worth the noise level. One of the best restaurants in Branford
This is one of our favorite Branford restaurants. The staff is always courteous and efficient and the food delicious and fairly priced. They always offer the “staples” mixed with specialty dishes and inventive specials-of-the- day. You never feel rushed and they let you linger (within reason!) for post dinner conversation.
My one note is that because it is so popular it can often get busy and a bit noisy, especially in the greenhouse section.
Highly recommended, and as the warm weather approaches outdoor seating is too.
Birthday celebration. Arrived @6:30P.M. Ordered drinks @ 6:45. Received drinks @7:00. Ordered meals @ 7:00. Food did not arrive until waitress Mary was reminded about our order. She said the kitchen was backed up. @ approximately 1:45 min later our food arrived. Mainly four pasta dishes. Pasta under cooked and overly sauced. My son had pre ordered a birthday cake and Mary did not know
about it. She brought out one (1) piece of cake with a lit candle. There was three other people sitting at the table. At that point we requested the bill and left . ( While waiting for our meal two other tables got their food that arrived after us.)
My date is from a seafood loving family in fact they owed they own seafood market at time. He ordered the Calamari and I was de. The calamari My date did not complim

I will definitely return
We have been several times
