Everything was tasty. Just a bit over salted. The bread - warm was classic Italian bread. Good wine list. The Caesar salad made table side was delicious and spot on. Service was good. A bit quick. Was not able to finish salad prior to meal arrival. Everyone's meal was tasty and large portions even with the "smaller" selection.

I ' ve been to Assaggio's Ala Moana a number of times in the past. Each time before the food and service has been good, but not at lunch last Monday. I decided try something new and ordered Veal Milanese. Bad choice. The breaded veal cutlet was pre cooked and not cooked to order. The microwave was used to heat... More

Went on Valentine's Day for an early dinner and had reservations. Service was good for a crowded, special night. Had the small portion of chicken Ala cacciatore which was quite a lot for a small order. The food tasted good, nothing beyond that...but it was what I expected to meet my comfort level. The fresh baked bread was great with... More

Last night we dined at Assaggio's and as always, it was a very pleasant experience. The servers are always welcoming and very polite while being attentive at the same time. I really love their house bread. It's served warm and you can have as much as you want which is great when having a pasta dish! I ordered the fish... More

I too was extremely skeptical after reading the very mixed reviews but decided to go anyway. We made reservations for 4:30, had a time finding it and arrived at 4:35, we were well greeted and seated and had the friendliest waitress ever. Having previewed the menu earlier, I had a good idea of what I wanted and perhaps hubby too.... More

This very nice Italian food restaurant is "hidden" in the first floor of the Ala Moana Shopping Center on the Ala Moana boulevard. White cloth table complement good food and extremely prompt and polite service. Good, reasonably priced wine list. Try some of the beautiful Chianti - by the glass. Order the calamari and pasta for "Primi plati"; share since... More

We dine out a lot, and this was surely the worst experience we've had anywhere in years. As we were being seated, the host told us we had to hurry the meal because they had another reservation after ours. Then no wait person arrived for 20 minutes. We had to go ask the host to send someone - who arrived... More

Went for our Holiday dinner with family. Reviews ranged from ok to excellent. Scampi and scallops got rated highly. My Osso Bucco was tender and flavorful but the pasta was bland - until I mixed in the sausages from my brother in law's dish, the asparagus and garlic from the appetizers, and some red chili flakes. Yummy! My son's red... More
