We enjoyed an early dinner here before attending Richmond Theatre.
The menu is limited, but authentically Italian and everything we had was lovely.

Beautiful light pasta, delicious sauces and succulent meats. We had a very pleasant window table, very attentive waitress who was knowledgeable and recommended dishes.
The restaurant is tiny, small seating area downstairs and some extra seating upstairs, I would imagine booking advisable unless you eat early.
The toilets were up two levels via some steep stairs...anyone elderly may find this tricky.

i recommend this restaurant for theatre goers as its very convenient, or just for a very pleasant meal for lunch or dinner. A real find which we will definitely return to.

We went to L'Assaggino on a Saturday night in March and the whole experience was fantastic, start to finish. We were the first ones to sit down on the ground floor so it was very quiet, but by the time we left it was super busy and had a great atmosphere. We shared burrata and polpette to start and then carbonara and a Sardinian pasta special with fennel sausage and tomato, and everything was fresh and delicious. And the famous white chocolate cake didn't disappoint either! Top it all off with a perfect aperol spritz and we were two very happy customers. The staff are all so friendly and attentive and we will definitely be going back regularly!

been to this restaurant a few times & food has always been first class, but returned there last week and food lacked flavour, I can only assume they have changed chef, overall I feel let down as I always used to praise this cosy little restaurant.

My partner and I stumbled across this tiny Italian restaurant last summer by chance, which is tucked behind a small alley way. We couldn't get a table right away but decided to wait around for 20 mins for a table. It was the best decision made as we discovered one of our favourite Italian restaurants and have been back time and time again. Each time the food was delicious and service was very attentive. I was hesitated to write this review, not because it is not good. Instead it is because it is so good and local to me, I felt like keeping this little gem to myself. The restaurant is small and quirky, and get busy on Friday and weekends so best booked ahead. My partner declared this place served the best spaghetti bolognese and I loved the spaghetti carbonara. It is very reasonably priced (especially in Richmond!), like other reviewers noted, relatively small menu, which is actually a good thing because they serve the best of the classic dishes and ingredients are fresh. It is run by people who are genuinely passionate about serving the best of Italian food so worth giving it a try if you are out in Richmond.
