    Light and airy venue. Live the wide open windows at the front. Food was good but not amazing. Burrata salad ruined by being drowned in over-garlicky balsamic dressing which looked ugly and overpowered the lovely fresh burrata. Pizzas were really tasty. ‘Garlic foccacia’ was nothing like focaccia and actually garlic butter pizza - ok but not what we expected.

    From the moment we entered we were made extremely welcome . Our server Molly was amazing ,helpful and so happy and cheerful. She recommended dishes that suited both of us and they were absolutely amazing. The food was so delicious. We actually could not finish it all as the portions were amazing. Our food was served hot and it was beautiful. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and you will be very very lucky if you get Molly as your server.

    Restaurant was cold, asked to be moved and advised no spare tables which there were plenty. Ordered a bottle of the house red wine than advised they had run out and was told I needed to pick the next in the menu which was £7 dearer, complained and then suddenly they did have the house red. Food was ok but definitely not worth the prices was expensive was basically tapas. Planned to have Affogato ant the end only to be told they had no ice cream! In an Italian Restaurant! Sorry but you need to do much better if we were to come back.

    Wont be returning. We were sat right next to a large noisy group with a crying baby in an otherwise empty restaurant . The service was shockingly slow for what was a fairly empty restaurant. We waited a ridiculous amount of time for our food and had to ask for food we had ordered that didn’t come. Couldn’t wait to leave . Also realised it’s a brewery restaurant to our disappointment.

    An excellent addition to the Italian restaurant scene. Everything was delicious and the pizza / pasta sauces were different from the run of the mill. The pizza bases were wonderfully crisp.

    Restaurant premises is really light and modern and seemed a good working environment and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Only slight downside was my pasta which was a bit too “Al Dente” for me, but that may just be my preference vs the restaurant’s standard cooking style . When returning, I would probably request my pasta to be cooked a few minutes more

    Our dining experience at Assaggini was marred by a series of issues that put our party member’s health at risk. Despite stating dietary restrictions due to allergies in our online booking, the restaurant staff seemed ill-prepared. The manager, Nik, did not acknowledge the allergies or provide us with any information about suitable food choices. We were told that all pasta contained egg, then that vegan pasta could be substituted into any dish, only to be informed later that this was not possible as it is cooked in the same water! We were informed that the chips we had ordered as a replacement for the pasta could not be eaten due to cross-contamination with the oil. This indicates a lack of separate cooking methods for ALL dietary requirements. A dish was served that was not safe for our allergy sufferer to eat. Despite our clear communication that we did not want to eat any more food, as I now felt unsafe; Nik continued to insist on preparing another dish. Eventually one of our party felt they had to rise from their seat and address Nik in the eye and telling him he had to listen to what we were saying to prevent a medical emergency. Nik’s management style left us feeling like we were problematic and inconvenient customers. His sighs before speaking to us were off-putting and did not contribute to a positive dining experience. We witnessed discussions between both waiting staff and kitchen staff; who were clearly discussing our table; again making us feel uncomfortable. There were 4 members of staff taking orders from us and passing information back and forth from the kitchen. A 5th member of staff began to patrol around our table, making us all feel incredibly self-conscious.She approached the table, asked if everything was OK. Even though she knew it wasn't.I would thank Nik for waiving the bill, but he seemed to think in doing so; he had redeemed himself. He had not. I have never left such a review of any restaurant, but I feel I must do so as a warning.

    First visit but not what we hoped. Service poor, starter of mozzarella with salad nice, vegetarian pizza ok nothing great, pasta with the lemon sauce was tasteless -no real flavour except for the chilli’s, quite disappointing. Would help if the floor staff asked if we needed anything as they weren’t forthcoming. Hard to order a drink as it took so long but they weren’t busy. Sadly with the cost of dining out so high it’s important to ask customers if their meal is satisfactory and if they need anything …

    Unfortunately left disappointed by the service received. Really wanted to love the restaurant, the vibe was nice and the food but the service completely ruined it. Were left waiting for around 50min/1hr on our food, waitress came over and said she’ll check what the hold up is after around 40 min. Then returned to say ours was still in the line of tickets to be looked at, found this odd as tables beside us who arrived after had already been served. Eventually received 1 dish, for another member of staff to come over and ask if we had ordered the rest as takeaway? Random and incorrect. Nobody asked at any point if we wanted a second drink/nor if everything was okay with our meal. Same situation when it came to getting the bill, received the bill nobody then approached for us to pay it/asked what form of payment. Ultimately we just felt very dismissed and forgotten. We were unsure if we were treated less properly due to being young girls? But our money is just as worthy as anyone older than us. Really sorry to be so negative just was really disappointing and probably wouldn’t return. Food was nice though.

    Restaurant was nicely decorated however food was a massive let down. Pasta was bland and pizza tasted like one from a supermarket. Very overpriced, almost £30 for two small plates and one drink, left disappointed so would unfortunately not recommend.

    Glad we’ve been. Won’t be rushing back or recommending to others. Music was a bit loud. I’d asked for a quiet table for hard of hearing guests. That seemed to be ignored but the music was turned down when we asked. Opinion on the food was mixed. Lamb ragu pasta was good. Not a child friendly menu - unless there is another one.

    Our meal was not great, service was also not good. The waitress had asked for feedback at the end of the meal and we had let her know what we thought. We had also seen that the restaurant done the Parmesan cheese wheel with fettuccine ( the reason we chose to come ) but when we given the menus it wasnt there, a waitress then told us that it was only available on “special occasions” which was really disappointing, we would have gone elsewhere if we knew this. I had also email the restaurant 2 weeks before to ask this question and no reply. Wont be back

    Arrived to be told of an issue with the ventilation which made the restaurant smoky. This is newly opened so we did bear that in mind and it wasn't too bad. There were no fried items available on the day, this could be due to ventilation issues! Service was efficient and our order was taken quickly. I ordered the beef ravioli and my daughter had the arrabiata, she went for rigatoni as they were out of penne. The food arrive in a timely manner but when mine was put down in front of me there was confusion as it was topped with pistachios which weren't meant for this dish. This was noted by the server and I was asked if I wanted another one but I was fine with it. It was a very small portion for £12.00 which seemed really poor value. Both my daughter's dish and mine were just OK. They were both quite bland and lacking in seasoning. I felt that £29.00 for one soda, two small pastas and some bread was quite expensive. If it has been delicious, I would have felt better with the price! As it was, it was just meh, it was very much a chain restaurant experience. There are too many great Italian restaurants in Glasgow for us to go back here.

    This is easily the WORST food I’ve eaten in many years in an Italian restaurant in Glasgow. The pizza had NO taste and the 3 pasta dishes were so salty as I’m sure it was to mask the very poor pasta ! We thought surely they tiramisu and ice cream would possibly save the meal but sadly the ice cream was just ice with no taste and tiramisu was congealed bitter coffee/froth and was runny like bad rice pudding. I don’t like leaving such a bad review but the food was really that bad I feel I need to be honest and tell others not to waste their money and please don’t book this restaurant as they will be very disappointed . It’s lucky that one star is the least that can be awarded.

    Nice small plates Italian food and friendly service, with a good atmosphere. The cocktails were also good. Unfortunately, though, we felt it was somewhat overpriced. Drink prices were fine, as were the charcuterie and burrata sides, but they're charging £9-13 for a small plate sized pizza and pasta. It was very nice, but you can get a full-size version of the same quality elsewhere locally, so value for money will probably put us off coming back.

    Friendly staff and efficient service. The pasta dishes were small and overpriced in my opinion. The pasta was not hot when served due to plates being cold. Pizzas were tasty and reasonable value. Good selection of reasonably priced beers and wines.
