Nice selection of dishes and currently for their soft opening they are doing a 2 or 3 course option from their main menu with a glass of prosecco included, £16.99/£20.99
Had the stuffed squid and the beef carpaccio to start, both very generous portions and then the seafood linguine and the lamb ragu for mains. The lamb was particularly tender and the pappardelle with it was lovely and fresh. The king prawns in the seafood dish were particularly plump and with hindsight would probably have gone for the solely king prawn dish. We were too full to need dessert but the sweet menu was fairly limited anyway. Overall food was great, good portion size, tasty and good variety, mains were a tiny bit salty but fantastic value overall definitely worth a visit

This place is so good that we went back a second night in a row for dinner. It's a quaint little restaurant tucked away in the cobbled street behind House of Fraser. The food is excellent and the service fantastic. We've had carpaccio (twice), a vegetarian quiche, tagliatelle gamberoni (twice), cannelloni, penne bolognese, tiramisu and panna cotta. Everything has been delicious. Please give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

My husband, daughter and her partner visited L'assaggino on Saturday evening for dinner. The Maitre d' explained it was their soft opening and they were currently running with a short fixed price test menu while they bedded in the service.

We enjoyed a complementary aperitif (Aperol Spritz or Prosecco) and then all tucked into delicious bruschetta. Our main courses included lamb tagliatelli, spinach & ricotta ravioli with walnut cream and seafood pasta. We all finished with an excellent tiramisu.

The service was good and atmosphere relaxed. Definitely recommend and as my daughter lives practically opposite I'm sure we will be back.

Very pretty little restaurant! Food was excellent accompanied by great selection of vine! Burrata and stuffed calamari are definitely worth a try! Good selection of pasta also. But don't forget to leave a little bit of space for dessert because white chocolate cake is to die for!❤️
We have spent lovely evening thank you Manolo and team!
I recommend this restaurant!
