I really enjoyed this restaurant! The food was the best Italian fare by far in the area, and I've had my share. I would definitely go back again. The location is wonderful, in the midst of shops and other fine dining with a vibrant atmosphere. The fresh mozzarella was the best I've ever tasted and the pasta was perfectly prepared. They also have an extensive and wonderful wine list. Definitely try their Super Tuscan Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona which is an incredible red wine! The service was also excellent. I'll definitely return for more!

I need to express a dissenting opinion from the favorable food reviews for Assaggi. Our party of 7 dined there on a recent Saturday night. We have no objection to the service or decor, but the food was unremarkable to dissappointing. We ordered te mozzarella assagi, prosciutto with mozzarella, and broiled squid as appetizers. We expected the two cold dishes to be good, and they were, the squid was also well-prepared and came in a delicious sauce. These appetizers caused us to anticipate an equally satisfying main course, but we were let down. The two fish dishes were overcooked causing the fish to be dry. The two pasta dishes were bland, as was the cioppino and the orechietti. The only acceptable main course was the duck which was cooked very nicely and served with a mushroom sauce. Desserts were very good, but the selection was pedestrian and equal to what one would see in any number of good restaurants. Overall the meal was disappointing and overpriced.

Love the mozzarella tasting, wish they would add more. Noise level a bit high.

After reading superlative reviews of this restaurant, my expectations were high. I found the food quite disappointing. Risotto was gluey, tagliatelle with crab-- bland and full of shell, veal chop somewhat tough and veal ravioli just fair. Even the cheese platter disappointed with the Pecorino tasting quite off. This place was pricey and below par. Would not return.

Best Italian food in or near Bethesda. Nice casual/elegant decor and ambiance. Have eaten there many times for lunch and dinner and honestly don't understand the neg reviews. Upscale spot, nouvelle cuisine portions, excellent variety of menus. Good wine list. Bread is fantastic too.
