"I want to reiterate how lovely and attentive the staff were. I don’t want to dance on this restaurant’s grave. But the evening just demonstrated how much we have all moved on. This was food and service in a time machine." READ REVIEW

"Assaggi delivers what its regulars expect: fine food with prices to match. This is, to be fair, not the most affordable area of London; the tables near us were occupied by parties from the broadcast media, who all knew each other. If you're paying for yourself, a trip to Assaggi is likely to be reserved for a special occasion." READ REVIEW

"Despite the informal, pared-down dining room with scrubbed wooden floorboards and paper table mats, it is one of those rare places in London where prime ingredients marry culinary artistry at reasonable prices." READ REVIEW

"Superb! The "keep it small" approach (there are only twelve tables at Assaggi), adds to the pleasure of dining at this quality Italian restaurant." READ REVIEW
