It was a rainy Sunday night and we were not in the mood to cook so I suggested we go out and decided on Assaggio's. We live in Kailua but had not eaten here in a couple of years (don't know why) and were just in the mood for their "garlicky goodness". No rez but were seated within a few... More

This was our last family dinner with 8 people of our vacation. I felt my chicken piccata was rather hard on the outside and dried out on the inside. Others seemed pleased with their meals. It took a while for our salads - made table side - to even get started, so meal pacing was no very cohesive. The bread... More

Reasonable wine prices, and the Barbera was very good. Thursday night and the place was packed. Make a reservation. They offer two sizes of mains, but the small was pretty large. A... More

Celebrated my moms 86th birthday at Assaggios. She goes there more often then we do and still had a hard time making up her mind on what to have. Nice menu selection, wonderful specials. I had the salmon piccata, as it's the salmon time of year. Succulent and juicy, lightly crispy as you cut into it. Many had veal in... More

Had not had lunch at assagio's before, but my birthday gave us an opportunity. Not true Italian, but tasty Italian, Hawaii style. All of us had various salads and side veggies. All fresh and unique. Roasted peppers were the perfect appetizer and their chewy, flavorful bread. Service was very polite, but a little delayed to start. A Lilikoi sorbet was... More

We regularly go to Assaggio when we have an event to celebrate. Good food, good service, reasonable price. We especially like the seafood platter.

We went in without a reservation on a Tuesday night. Wasn't a problem. Waited 5-10 minutes and we had a table. Service was very good. Food was tasty. Would return.

Very good Italian food. There were 6 of us. We all had something different. All dishes were good. The stuffed eggplant was really good. Dinner included bread which we all enjoyed They had a nice wine menu as well. Service was good. We had reservations so we're able to get right in on a Saturday night.

We have eaten here twice in the last three weeks. Delicious food and helpful staff. Moderate prices and good value. Nice to be in a restaurant that is not overwhelmingly noisy.
