We arrived at 5:00 and we're seated promptly. Friendly staff, excellent food. Appetizers, salads and main courses all served in appropriate amount of time.

While we were staying at Lanikai a local resident suggested Assagio. It was a great recommendation. My wife had a seafood dish and I had a vegetarian pasta (I'm not a vegetarian by the way). Both were excellent. This is a very nice restaurant inside but it is located in a mixed office/commercial area of Kailua so it needs local... More

We had not dined there in several years and we were delighted to find the same high level of service and excellent food. The portions were generous, and the food was perfectly prepared and delicious.

The interior has been freshened and updated. While understand vinyl seats for durability and cleaning reasons, not so nice for guests wearing shorts or skirts. That aside, the menu offers a wide variety of tasty dishes, and even let us custom create one. Particularly appreciate the option to choose portion side for pasta dishes. The Lilikoi Mule was one of... More

While I was impressed with the Hawaii Kai branch , the one at Ala Moana was a big disappointment, thus I had a slight bit of hesitation on trying this one. We went for lunch on a Thursday, and the quality of food was very good, especially the pasta we ordered ... Angel hair and linguine. The scallops were plentiful,... More

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

Visiting friends who are regulars at Assaggio and thought we'd enjoy it as well....and yes, we did! Had an excellent chicken Marsala. Husband indulged in his fav puttanesca. 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
