We took our party of 7 for dinner the night of my son's graduation and the food and service were excellent. We had dinner reservations that we had to push back half an hour due to the length of graduation, so I called and it...More

This place was recommended by Bostonians and I must say the food was as good as Italian American food gets. Stick to the basics -- pastas, southern Italian favorites and you will be happy. Downstairs is hard for physically challenged and the low ceiling was...More

Even though Assaggio is in the heart of the North End, the tourists don't flock here which is a benefit for all who love this restaurant. Whether it's the three mushroom risotto or the veal marsala, the food is delicious and the wine list is...More

Stopped in for lunch on way to airport. Walked right in during the week - seated promptly. Menu has lots to offer - agree that winelist/drinks were pricey - but this is Boston. Two lunches and glass of wine was about $45 (including tip). Considered...More

The food is very good as is the service and if you like Italian food you can't go wrong here. Suggest reservations as the place gets very busy on weekends. Biggest downside is that the tables are too small for the large plates of food...More

This is not a great option for a trattoria. While service was good, we found the wine list a bit overpriced and the food very average. Better options nearby.

This great restaurant is just off the main drag in the North End, which was part of the attraction for us when choosing where to dine. Many of the restaurants along Hanover St seem to rush to get you out, but Assaggio was the opposite...More

I am giving this only 2 stars purely based on the service. The food is very good, but waitresses needed some classes on personality. We ordered appetizers and drinks. Stayed about 3 hours on a non busy Saturday afternoon in the middle of winter. Spent...More

We just returned back to Edmonton Alberta after an amazing week in Boston. One highlight was dinner at Assaggio!! This was mostly because of our waiter Colin!! We were in for dinner on a slow Sunday night. Well a few minutes in we realized we...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
