Assaggio's, an Italian restaurant, is one of the finer restaurants, with a white-tablecloth atmosphere. The special of the day was good and the Italian sausage & peppers with potato, the fresh fruit with rum sauce and whip cream, and the fresh hot bread provided at the table were excellent. It is spacious, though can get loud with a full crowd, and the service mostly good. It's a great place to take a date or for special occasions, business meal, or just to splurge a little. They also will sell deli items to take home: homemade bread, rigatoni, homemade Italian sausage $8/pd or meatballs, marinara meatless tomato sauce, fettuccine, and linguine. Credit cards are accepted.
Their sausage tasted so good, I went back another day to find out where they get them from and found out that they're made on the premises and would be available for purchase. I asked for a couple of pounds to be set aside frozen for me on my departure date. If I didn't show to pick them up, they would just use it the next day. The same person was there when I returned and wanted an additional pound frozen, but they only froze the amount I had asked for. The rest must be only refrigerated and they were hesitant to sell me only refrigerated sausage for my long flight home. They were tasty at home, but the spices start to fade in taste after a while and they had cost four times as much as I could get at Costco.Sunday-Thursday 11am-3pm & 4:30pm-9:30pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-3pm & 4:30pm-10pm
