    Great service! Our waitress really seemed to like her job. The food was amazing. Long wait in between courses, which I actually prefer so we enjoyed our evening at Assagio! The zucchini flowers will not be forgotten.

    We chose this restaurant based on reviews. What a letdown. We dined here Saturday night. Despite having a reservation, were seated in the basement under the stairs next to the washrooms, and were treated to the smell of air freshener and serenaded by the hand blower during our meal. The food was not impressive, and the service and overall experience terrible. It appeared that not one staff member had any idea what basic dinner service is (this is not fine dining, we get that, but this was a gong show). One example (will spare you the rest): we ordered wine, they were out of what we ordered, picked something else, they brought the wrong bottle, waiter said it was what the bartender gave him (still doesn't make it the one we ordered), then they had no wine glasses, more waiting, then he had no corkscrew. All said, we got (a random bottle of) wine after we had finished our appies. We do NOT recommend this restaurant.

    Food was ok, the service was not good, everything took a long time , had one drink server didn’t ask if we wanted another, to many tables to close to bar, they served appetizers with no utensils, had some basic questions about menu server had to keep asking someone else, overall not a good experience

    Fantastic meal! We had a wonderful dinner experience and all agreed we’d go here again and again! We all had a different entree and we would order them all again! We started with the charcuterie, and had the veal Parmesan, Ossobucco, the mamas lasagna, and the Naples. Drinks were great too! All in all we were thrilled!

    Not a very busy night at the restaurant, so noise level was low- our server was attentive, assisted us with wine selection but was not hovering. Food was fresh, especially the red sauce, clearly fresh and house-made, and portions were sufficient. Fried zucchini was innovative, pastas were perfectly cooked. All in all, a terrific meal!

    Table was ready when we arrived. Very busy Friday night. Waiter was new and he had a difficult time, needs to shadow someone as there were big gaps between ordering drinks and receiving them. The second round never arrived and he instead added them to the bill which we questioned. Only then were the drinks removed. We ordered an appetizer which he got wrong and a poorly prepared Caesar salad was delivered with the entree. My wife’s dish was not hot. We’ve been there two other times but this time was a bad experience all around.

    The food was overpriced and the meal was average. We were rushed to order apps & dinner at the same time while the waiter was inattentive and forgot about our requests on two occasions. There were tables open and there was no need to rush. We weren’t even offered bread when we sat down.

    The food and service was fantastic! The noise was a little louder but not overwhelming… our reservation for 2 was at 4:30 and we were seated right next to a family of 4 with 5+ empty tables open in the restaurant. I would state that the restaurant is a little fancier than a family restaurant so if your kids are on the younger side and can misbehave, this restaurant is not the best place to bring your children. Both of the children seated next to us were playing with their water and eventually spilled it. Due to the tight seating conditions, some water did splash over to our table.

    Food was wayyy to expensive for how much you get (except for the truffle crusted tuna, which was a good amount but tasteless). Shrimp cocktail, 3 jumbo shrimp for $24! $8/shrimp. Not blaming the restaurant, probably just a consequence of inflation, but there are many other restaurants where you get better quality & value.

    The food was pretty good some what pricey for the north end . When you go to the North End it kind of loses something when your seated in the basement of a building away from all the excitement and street views. If you make a reservation here ask not to be seated in the basement there are plenty of really good restaurants that won’t seat you in the basement.

    Very disappointed with my meal. I ordered the veal osso bucco and it was undercooked. Osso bucco should melt off the bone, this did not. It was more of a veal chop than osso bucco. Also, everything was under seasoned and bland. Maybe they had an off day, but I as hoping for a better experience. My osso bucco is better than what I received.

    Two minor quibbles: my wife’s pasta with sausage & rabe was a bit saltier than usual, and we couldn’t sit in any of the tables alongside the windows, as we’d requested. Overall though, always one of our favorite places to have a good meal !

    6 people and one was never served. Her food was delivered after the rest of the group had finished. Very pricey for quality. Veal Parmesan was too tough to cut with a steak knife. Very long wait for initial food that was brought. And a friend went home hungry. There are too many other good Italian restaurants in the vicinity to spend 2.5 hours for mediocre food. Disappointing experience.

    Amazing place in the North End. The wine cellar was such a romantic setting perfect for an anniversary or date. Very nice wine selection. Awesome timely and friendly service even keeping up with filling our water. Food was fantastic. The charcuterie board was delicious. I had the special which was a butternut squash risotto with Italian sausage served in a pumpkin. IT WAS THE BEST MEAL EVER. Everything else on the menu looked so good I can’t wait to go back. Cannot say enough good things about this restaurant.

    A superb dinner with my 7 year old son and a close friend. My son had french fries(of course) while my friend and I shared the roasted octopus and PEI mussels appetisers. We both dined on the evening special which was lobster ravioli. OUTSTANDING! Looking forward to a return visit and I will try Assaggios Veal Osso Bucco.

    Update. The restaurant has reached back out and made this right. I have been going to this restaurant for years and always had good experiences. On this trip I got the special bone in veal parmigiana. I typically love their veal. On this occasion I notice it was not as good and only ate a small portion of the meal. I ended up taking it home. The next day I went to have the left overs and when I cut into it found the veal was raw. I contacted the restaurant (actually headquarters) and was told thank you for letting them know they will address the issue. After having spent 50 on the dish I would have expected some offer to address the issue with me.
