I ate here while on a business trip with a colleague. The waiter was informative, and also made choices for me when I asked (i.e. glass of wine with dinner). I had a lovely arugula and prosciutto salad redolent with truffle oil and gemelli for dinner. Exquisitely good.

This is our first night in Seattle and we went to Tripadvisor for a recommendation. This restaurant was just down the road and we arrived early enough to get in without a reservation. The gnocchi and the seafood special were excellent. My partner loved the chianti very much. The server brought over the bottle for him to take a picture.... More

There are so many restaurants to choose from in Seattle, but this one is definite on of the top ones if you are looking for Italian food. We had really good pastas. The place is very crowded and noisy.

First time in Seattle! I am not one to write a review but when you find something this wonderful, they deserve the recognition!!! The calamari is like no other throughout the USA! There were 4 people in our party. We all tried something different and there was no left overs!!

A glass of Pinot Grigio paired with fresh bread to dip into a splash of perfectly spiced olive oil. Started with vegetarian minestrone soup. Very tasty, lots of veggies, sprinkled with parmesan, a pinch of pepper, then down it goes. Went with the old reliable, eggplant parmesan with spaghetti on the side topped with more cheese, pepperacino, washed it down... More

Service was friendly. Food was excellent, good thing we made a reservation as they were very busy on a Saturday night, go figure, the beets were amazing. The wife had the Zefferano pasta and it was SOOOOO good. Will definitely go back when in the Seattle area.

We each had an excellent meal. The orecchiette was perfect. The Veal Milanese was a great choice also. I created my own dish of capellini pesto and prawns. Great service from Brieanna, friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very busy and the owner happily went from table to table welcoming and thanking his guests. High marks for Assaggio.

We eat dinner here nearly every visit to Emerald City. It's consistently superb. This time was no different. The wild boar ragu is my go to dish! Great service & the owner is wonderful, gracious and welcoming. My favorite Italian in the Puget Sound area!!!

Assaggio was authentic and mouth watering. I had the rigatoni, which was absolutely delicious but even the olive oil with the bread is of high quality. I also love that you can do the taster's plate and try three different pastas, as there are so many delicious options. 10/10.

It's been 5 years since I've been to assaggio and it's still great. It's always been consistently good over the last 20 years. Great Italian food and atmosphere and not over priced.
