This was our first visit and won’t be our last. We went for lunch before heading to Twickenham to watch the rugby and it was a fabulous start to our afternoon from the very attentive and friendly staff to the exquisite home made pasta to the sumptuous wine! Fantastic!

Went there pre theatre. Even though no pre theatre menu, reasonably prompt service (although I had to ask to order a glass of wine after I finished my cocktail). Quaint place - really tiny so feels a little too much like hovering but there's no option given the size. Food was excellent, service good, prices reasonable. Mostly pasta, but that was fine for me. We didn't have time for pudding, but the table next to us had some and they looked great. Will definitely go back.

Fantastic evening and what a local find, looking forward to going back this week. Good food reasonable price, friendly attentive staff and an owner who cares, such a great change from the restaurant who charge the earth and deliver poor food and service. You have to try this place if your in the area, but suggest you book as space is limited.

We came here for a double dinner date with our family. We had a terrific time and really enjoyed all of our dishes. The food was all so well-prepared and the service staff was really attentive to all of our needs.

There is an almost unexpected attention to food prep and plating--a level that one should expect in far more expensive dining establishments. The kitchen has mastered Italian classics and taken them beyond cliché. The wait staff is mainly Italian and very charming; they describe the menu in detail, obviously loving the food and the opportunity to connect with the diners.

Stumbled upon this fabulous place only to be blown away by the delicious food and amazing service! We enjoyed sitting upstairs. Highly recommend!

Amazing little Restaurant in Richmond.

I ate the Seafood pasta and my friends the carbonara and the Bolognese. Also, we enjoyed te bruschetta and the calamari for starters.

Everything is fresh and delicious, is an authentic Italian with very nice Italian Staff.

We will be back for sure!

My friends and I visited to celebrate my birthday and were really impressed - will definitely be going back. The food was delicious and there was a great selection to choose from, the staff were excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. We ended up spending about three hours in there! Very good value too, you can get two courses and a glass of prosecco for £16.99 or three courses with a drink for £20.99. Was pleasantly surprised that they were this deal was still available on a Saturday night. Highly recommend.

We were looking for a nice place to take a group of friends who were visiting the area and this did not disappoint! The atmosphere and service were very friendly and accommodating to different dietary needs. Service was quick but we were not rushed at all. The restaurant was cosy and welcoming. We all enjoyed the set menu and the glass of prosecco was lovely. Lots of good feedback from our friends and I am sure we will be visiting again.

We had reservations for an early dinner, and were greeted at the door by Manolo. Several tables were occupied and there was a steady ebb and flow throughout the evening, but the restaurant (in the middle of the week) was not crowded or hurried.. Never was there any hurry, but service was professional, timely and knowledgeable. Our waiter suggested a great wine to pair with our meals.The Carpaccio di Bresaola was exceptional--moist, flavorful and memorable. My hubby had Calarmaretti ripeni--also a great choice! Servings were plentiful without being oversized. We shared dessert--a hard choice--but delicious as was everything! In a city with so many outstanding restaurants, we'll be back!

We decided to book as an impromptu dinner out at the end of a busy week. The food was wonderful. We had a bruschetta and burrata caprese to start and Gorgonzola gnocchi and penne arabiatta for main with a bottle of primitivo. The restaurant is in an old quirky building with lots of character. I think to improve the experience even more it would have been lovely to have some more ambient lighting ie candles on tables and softer lighting in the evening. Otherwise it was a perfect evening and certainly didn’t detract from the great food.

I picked this for a pre-cinema meal and it fitted the bill perfectly. Relatively small menu and the mains are mostly pasta but everything we had was delicious and the service was friendly. Great value with a 20% off food offer.

It was our first visit to L'assaggino but definitely won't be our last. The food was delicious, we sat outside in the sun at one of the two, small tables in front of the restaurant, and we appreciated the personal service from the manager. Portion sizes were decent without being huge but the food was of a high standard and well presented. The only minor negative was that the staff seemed over-stretched and service was slow at times, but that didn't detract from an overall enjoyable experience.

Delicious (!) food. Great little find in the heart of Richmond. It’s tucked away and quite unobtrusive (I walked past it the first time I walked down the lane). Quaint and characterful. Service was a little patchy especially waiting for the bill. There are three floors and I’d recommend booking a table on the 1st or 2nd floor to not be in the line of incoming customers arriving. The toilet is up on the top floor - the staircase is narrow and steep!

Oh, dear, we have been several times to this restaurant and never had a bad exerpience, hence we decided to take some friends. We arrived on time and where directed to our table , only then did we realise the owner was not present. The food was not up to the usual standard e.g. The meat balls were swinming in oil not sauce, the lamb was dry to name but two problems. We had three coarses plus coffee and yet at 22.10 we were asked to drink up and leave with in 15 minutes as they want to close. Very surprising as they advise last booking as 22.00 and previously we have been there well after 23.00. Guess it's a case of while the cat being alway and the mice playing. Such a shame as we really enjoyed the place, we will go one more time as we believe in being objective and hope the owner is present and the service reverts to the pleasure of our earlier visits.

Low key local Italian with tasty food but not for a special occasion. Varied menu that would suit all tastes and generous portions but it's more an everyday experience rather than a special dinner. Would struggle with a crowd - even with a half empty restaurant the food was slow to arrive. The wonky old building has a certain charm but don't go if you have mobility issues as climbing up to the loo would be a challenge. Excellent value however with a 20% discount on food as a promotion.

A lovely quirky little restaurant hidden behind House of Fraser. The layout on the ground floor is a bit odd, but if you don’t mind walk-ins standing over you whilst you’re eating, then you’re fine. Ask to be seated upstairs if possible.
We had to wait a while for our order to be taken, and even longer for our drinks, which the waiter got wrong when it did arrive. Tip- leave the water carafe on the table please.
The food cannot be faulted, it was delicious, though my dining companion complained that his portion was on the small side, compared to a child’s on the next table who did seem to have a bigger portion of pasta?
Be aware that there is a waiter ( we were there on a Saturday evening) who either isn’t listening to what you order or is preoccupied with other things going on in the restaurant. But not only did he get the drinks order wrong, but for dessert I asked for the white chocolate cake, and after waiting about 15 mins (!) was given the dark chocolate cake, when asked why, I was told that was what I had ordered!! My dining companion asked for a double espresso and was given a single. Small things I’m sure that can be easily rectified.
I must give full credit to the owner who I spoke to the next day. I had not been given the 20% discount on food (special offer on Open Table) for which she apologised and promptly refunded the difference into my bank account the same day.
Would I return to this restaurant? Yes, the food is lovely, as is the restaurant itself.
I’m sure the waiter is a ‘teething’ issue that can be rectified and shouldn’t put anyone off from dining here.

dissapointing meal. The food was OK, pasta slightly over cooked and pannacota a little on the solid side but what spoilt it for us was the inexperienced staff. We ordered a minestrone soup and pasta for the main course, they wanted to serve both of them together . A great location for this restaurant in a very lovely part of Richmond but a few things just not right.
