I just love this place!
Dishes could be bigger and prices lower!
Service is impecable.
Overall, beautiful place!
Excellent food .Well presentation.Clean please.Service was good
Delicious food. Very polite and friendly staff. Highly recommended.
The food was nice but not great, main courses were served on a cold plate and food was not that hot. Service was good, the place has potential maybe we were just unlucky.
Very nice special- long roasted boar ragú and pasta.
Dinner for two early on a Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday, so it was relatively quiet. The service was very good and the food, as ever, was excellent. A great place for an intimate dinner.
Excellent food as usual.
Great food and wine, super service. Could not fault my dishes, and the rest of the group seemed to agree. I would go back alone for the gnocchi, superb
Great place good food but lacks atmosphere on a lunch time, they should do a shorten buisness menu to bring in more people.
As a suggestion I recommend the restaurant offers a buisness lunch from a reduced menu, 2 coarses for a fixed price it will help bring more clients in if advertised correctly.
Lovely little lock reataurant - authentic and chanting Italian service - will definitely be back while Xmas shopping
fantastico cibo italiano autentico!!!
Lovely pre-theatre meal. We will definitely return when we have more time to relax.
Not your big standard Italian but a little bit different. Pasta is a speciality but always served in a refined way. It's a tiny intimate restaurant and good value too
The site is not really accessible to people with mobility issues as it is very small, the loos are upstairs and the stair are very steep. That said, it's a lovely venue - small and quaint and intimate. The food was authentic and delicious; the staff were charming and the prices were very reasonable. I will definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
Very nice cozy place for a quiet dinner. I think the pasta is the best I have had in the UK! Outstanding.
Really good authentic Italian food and friendly hosts. But the Menu different to online so our vegetarian guest struggled a bit
Great meal - everything was delicious! We had the bruschetta and the mushrooms to start - super tasty. My wife had the Trofie and I went for the Lamb Ragú. Great local Italian restaurant. Perfect for a weekend treat!
Great dinner for a great price
Excellent food and service.
Canoli are delicious.
I found this place only a week ago, and was delighted to bring my husband here at the weekend.
Italian food is our favourite, and seafood pasta is very high on the list.
Calamari Ripeni - stuffed squid. We ordered a starter to "share", and this nearly caused a fight. Really succulent, with loads of flavour. With a bottle of Vermentino, it was perfect.
The husband tried the carbonara di mare [which I'd had the week before] and it's now his favourite dish. I chose black tagliolino, and that's a meal that can sometime lack flavour, once you get over the showiness of black squid ink. But this was delicious.
Prices are very reasonable, considering the quality of ingredients, and the skill in preparing them.
Staff are lovely. The restaurant is cosy. I reckon the bookings for Valentine's night will probably start.......now?
Incredible value for pound.
This little place is typical of a restaurant that's recovered really well from its previous life. Richmond residents and visitors will recall it as 'Amadoro', which was great for a while - and then, wasn't. We'd stopped going.
I'd already done a day's work by the time I got here for a late lunch: just a simple plate of pasta, I thought.
Carbonara di mare is not a combination I'd had before - tiny cubes of tuna cooked to perfection, plus squid and fabulously garlicky prawns. One glass of wine was not enough; as hungry as I was, I slowed right down to savour this one.
I'm taking the husband for dinner soon. He reckons my own Italian cooking is 'restaurant quality'. He's about to discover it's not!
Owner Manolo knows what he's doing, and the chef deserves a medal the size of a frying pan.
A bit disappointed with the overall experience. Starters really average, pasta was ok, service so so. Maybe it was a day off but looking at the previous reviews we felt we were in a completely different restaurant from the one that had been reviewed so far.
This was a lovely experience with waiter and chef who clearly really cared about what they served. Delicious stuffed calamari. A return visit after a while and will be back again soonest next opportunity.
Dinner for two friends on a Friday evening. We reserved a table but it hardly seemed necessary as there were several tables free at 20:00.; it was surprisingly quiet. We shareds the chicken livers as a start and it was superb. For main course I had the spaghetti carbonara and my friend had another pasta dish (both excellent) accompanied by the house red which is perfectly acceptable Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. The service was very good and we enjoyed our meal. Will be returning.
Very small and intimate restaurant just off Richmond Green, Parking in Old Deer Park which was free after 6pm and just a 5 min walk across the Green. Amazing food and service was quiet but attentive, Not the biggest menu but about 8 or 9 choices in starters, mains and dessert but all of very high quality. We both had Seafood Pasta as main and can honestly say the best pasta I’ve ever had. Chefs and owners all from Sardinia so recipes have a Sardinian flavour. really really good and will definitely be going again. Couldn’t fault it.
Small family Italian, everything cooked fresh to order. Had the pasta with bottarga - the owner had just brought the bottarga back from Sardinia with him.
We only had one course and coffee , but enjoyed our pre- theatre meal and will be back to sample the full menu.
Lovely evening with great italian food - really felt like we were in italy with the quality of the food and ingredients!
Lovely fresh pasta and wonderful service! Much recommended!
A little gem hidden away in the side streets of Richmond, we throughly recommend this restaurant .
Have been a few times to L'assaggino and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. It is a cute little restaurant on several floors, which makes it very cozy. The food is always fresh and taste really nice and the staff is nice and friendly. Can only recommend this place.
Loved the food and this was a cosy restaurant with a great atmosphere. A hidden neighbourhood gem.
Warm, friendly service and delicious food, every time.
Lovely fresh pasta, the gnocchi were fabulous! I’ll be going back!
The food was very good and the service unremarkable. Our 3 course meal for 2 cost £105 with wine. I was disappointed that the manager refused to accept my OpenTable Diner's Cheque, stating that the owner did not recognise these cheques. I had checked that L'assaggino was not on the exemptions list (of restaurants that do not accept diner's cheques) and it wasn't.
I am left wondering why I bother using OpenTable and gathering points when there seems to be no way to redeem them. i have asked OpenTable that question and received no response to date.
Excellent and friendly reception on entry and shown to a table upstairs, where it was fairly quiet. Food well presented and very good. Good wine list also.
We all enjoyed our first experience at L'assaggino and will be back. Thank you.
The starters were good. The mains were ridiculously small. The prawn dish had two prawns chopped into bits. The salami dish had no salami...just a sauce. Came away hungry.
