I went here over the summer with my girlfriend for date night. The decor and our meals/wine were excellent but it definitely came at a price. Our server was attentive yet a little strange. The food is very good here just be ready to shell...More

Surprised that our dinners were a little bland. Fish was good, but risotto and pasta were both lacking flavor. We were really impressed by this place in the past so maybe it was an off night. We haven’t lost faith yet.

Pleasant atmosphere. Pasta served with an over abundance of sauce. (Veal and angel hair were literally swimming in sauce.) - Appetizers: Enjoyed the antipasto; however, the fried calamari was rubbery and lacked flavor. Although service was excellent, food was average,

Nice atmosphere, pleasant wait staff, Assaggio is a restaurant that with a little bit of refining creativity could be very good. Everything from the cocktail and salad to the entree was good, but could be brought to the next level. The flavors are simply not...More

Typical CT Italian. Bland, heavy food. Nothing of note. They need to learn to pound their veal to tenderize it. The mozz was heavy, overpowering, and not fresh. Tomato sauce was average-no flavor and not light. Def not worth what they charge!
