Delicious seafood and healthy entree and appetizers. Great wine selection. Knowledgeable wait staff. Good service. A great local restaurant.
We are long-standing customers and have always enjoyed both food for being fairly authentic italian as well as chatting with the staff. We stopped going over a year ago as we found the quality of food had declined. Glad to say that the pasta dish was an improvement on the last one and the pizza is very good. If they extended their HH to 7pm we would definitely stop by again.
Food and service are exceptional!
Hi CarloC Thanks . Looking forward to seeing you again soon
This was my 2nd time at the restaurant, first time for my wife. From start to finish, the food was superior. My wife especially loved her scallops main course, and my veal marsala was excellent. We only split a gelato for dessert, but it was very good gelato. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The restaurant has an excellent wine list, though more diverse price points might be appreciated (for example, many of the Italian reds are $100 and above).
Hi there Thanks for taking the time to review us. We are glad that you enjoyed the food and the service. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
We have eaten here several times over the past number of years, and we are never disappointed. The hand-made pasta is fantastic, and the sauces are incredible each and every time. Cannot recommend this locals place enough.
Hi there Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We are glad that you have been enjoying our hand made pastas for years.
I've had much better meals at this restaurant. It has gone down hill. I was very disappointed. Prices are quite high for the quality level of the food.
Service was friendly and professional. Pasta home made and very good. Seafood stew loaded with seafood.
Hi Patv, Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and the service. Looking forward to seeing you again.
Always a pleasure to go across the bridge to a McLean for Assaggi. Wish they were back in Bethesda. Fried artichokes and veal ravioli were superb!
Met a friend for dinner there. Great meal - we each ordered the Branzino and then split an order of risotto. The food and service were terrific. Look forward to coming back again soon.
The hostess (a red haired 50 year old woman) provided service akin to a disgruntled teen working at Applebee’s. She started off our night so unpleasantly it was hard to come back from. We came on 2/14/20. Will not return. Terrible representation of the restaurant - she should absolutely be replaced. The pasta sauce lacked salt and the branzino was dry.
I am following up my earlier review of this establishment. The manger Billy asked me to follow up on my comments about the subpar experience I had at the hand of their “seasoned” hostess via email. Upon explanation of my complaint he asked ME to be more understanding of what I perceived was rude and ageist behavior at the hands of their red haired 50+ yr old hostess as she has never had a complaint evidently. I can be understanding when people make HONEST mistakes but not when they are done in malice and are intentional in nature (I was not alone during this experience and my counterpart felt exactly the same way). Alas, I was then asked to REMOVE my review of my experience. My experience has further diminished upon further conversation with “management.” Poorly run establishment. A genuine apology would have sufficed.
--Take Time To be a Kind Human Being-- We are writing in response to your DISCRIMINATING review. No matter how old you are (FYI she is 36 not 50) or how you look,etc.. you are welcome at our restaurant. We can hardly adopt such a value without treating our staff in the same way, can we? Sooo sad you couldn't look past her appearance and her age. Before we kindly asked you if you could remove the review we asked you to tell us how we can make your next visit a memorable experience.
Wasn't familiar with the restaurant before but the food was excellent and the service fantastic.
They didn’t have our reservation but seated us in the pizzeria section which was louder. The wait staff was great.
Seems like quality has declined, and prices increased. $45 for corkage is outrageous.
Everything from the service ( having to ask to order) to the bland taste of the arancini was disappointing. We won’t return due to the many other choices in the area.
First time visit for us at Assaggi Osteria. The food was very good and we enjoyed it. The service on the other hand was rushed, impersonal and our server was plain rude. I cannot imagine ever returning to Assaggi Osteria to dine and spend close to $100 per person considering our disappointing experience at this restaurant.
Great food and great service. The veal-stuffed olives were delicious.
Food was excellent. Service was superior.
My experience at this restaurant was not a good value. The food was ok but not good enough to make us want to return. The execution and flavor of the dishes was basic, not fine dining. Table service was adequate at an uncrowded time. Wine prices are exorbitant even for this area. The highlight of the evening was the courteous and pleasant hostess.
I've been here several times and absolutely loved it. This time the service was not up to snuff.
This was the first time we dined at Assaggi Osteria. We both had the Bronzini filet and a special caesar salad, which were excellent. A small glass of a 2012 Barolo was outstanding. The Tiramisu and the chocolate almond cake with gelato were excellent, as well. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the meal was and plan to return.
We sat down......no waiter or any service for at least 5-7 minutes. The menu was not close to what it once was, and we just had to leave.
Very nice spot for lunch. Outstanding starter soup and an excellent salad. Very fine quality food and superb service. Nice atmosphere -
The aged NY steak was very dry and tough. Not worth the money.
We were a party of 8. Forgot (or ran out of) one of the entrees. Pasta was no better than out of a box. Sauces were sticky and Iukewarm. Would not return.
Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to share your visit with us. We apologize for the service as this is not the experience that we hope you have at our establishment. As you were informed from the server on that day the salmon meal was not cooked properly and therefore our chef decided to redo the dish for your satisfaction. Your guest received a complimentary pasta from the chef until his meal was completed. I assure you our food quality is A++.Please email us to make things right for you.
