Raleigh >Food & Dining > Assaggio's Italian Bistro
Truly Disappointing!. I decided to try the place with a coupon I found and boy am I glad I didnt pay full price for an 18" cheese pizza. The pizza was extremely salty and the sauce tasted like " Little Ceasars". yuck! Truly disappointed at the the reviews that stated the best "NY style Pizza in Raleigh" because it's not at all but if you dont belive me try it at your own risk...
Best Italian In Raleigh.
My fiance and I just ordered delivery from here tonight. My mom had been there over the summer and told me to go but I hadn't gotten around to trying it. Oh my goodness. I'm so glad I did. It's a little pricier than I normally like to pay for delivery but it is very VERY worth it. I ordered the Shrimp Parmesan and my fiance had the Chicken Parmesan. It came with side salads and two garlic knots for each entree. You also get a choice of pasta with it. I definitely loved the italian dressing with the house salad. The portions are huge so you will definitely have leftovers. The Chicken Parmesan would most certainly feed two people. I was a little wary about spending the money for takeout but we did and felt no guilt after the fact! Everything was very flavorful. I can't comment on the interior of the location but I have heard positive things. It was REFRESHING to not have the same ol same ol (Olive Garden etc)
I will be spreading the word for sure about this place!
It's so good!. My neighbor recommended this place for good gnocchi and they were right!! It was awesome. Comfortable atmosphere and good food.
Excellent service, staff and food. I have been eating at this bistro for a least the past five years. It never fails. Great staff, great food and service. Last night my daughters and I ate here and again were fully satisfied. The staff here knock themselves out to be most accommodating. I highly recommend them .
$8 for pasta with sauce. I'm sorry... paying $8.30 for a small bowl of pasta with sauce is simply too much. NOTHING came with it. Waitress took 15 minutes to deliver soup (which I was hoping would come before the meal) and the whole meal, which she served together. I will not be back.
Best Pizza I've had in NC- Authentic Italian. I'm from the tri-state area and really haven't been impressed with the pizza down here in NC. However Assaggio's is on point. If you miss real NY style pizza this is your place. It's not too doughy, not too crispy, but right in the middle. Haven't tried the pasta yet, but it looks just as good. The place is clean, great ambience, and quick service. Recommended as a refuge for displaced new yorkers.
One word... AWESOME!!. This place is awesome. We moved down from NY in 2004, and ever since then have tried every acclaimed pizza place in the area. We lived in Apex for a while and fell in love with NY Pizza in Holly Springs. The only downside to NY Pizza is that they only have pizza, no classic Italian take-out. When we moved to North Raleigh, we tried Assagio's because it gets such good reviews. After trying it, we agree with everyone else who loves it! Their pizza is as good as the best places in NY--it's always super fresh, the sauce is tangy but not too sweet. The only problem is that you have to order it "well-done" or it might be a bit soupy. Also, their prices are a bit steep, but when you have the best Italian take-out in Raleigh, you can charge what you want. Their garlic knots are perfection and their pasta dishes are heaven. This place is the dog's bollocks. As for the preceding review, I can only guess that it was posted by a competitor OR someone who ordered on an off night (though I highly doubt Assagio's ever has an off night...).
New York? ...NO WAY!!!. If you miss the NY/NJ pizza, this is not the place!! Whatever you do, please DO NOT order a sub. I went there mouth watering for a good "New York" sub. (That's what they claim). It came out and had 2 slices of ham, 1 slice of salami and lettuce. When I asked the owner about it, he said "That's how we make it". I've never had a sub up north like that. The pizza usually comes out doughy. Not great!! :( I've also tried their Italian dishes, it's alright, but for the price you are better off going to Daniels in Apex. Now that is AWESOME!!!! :) You may have to drive but it's well worth it and you get a lot more food for the price.
Best Pizza in Raleigh. We love Assagio's and order from there at least once a week. The pizza is always fresh- the crust crispy, and the sauce is great! We've never had a bad experience there- either with the food or with the service. Occasionally we stop and eat there on the way to a movie- they do have table service- and they're always very friendly. Highly Recommended!
Love the garlic knots!.
We ordered lasagna, garlic knots, and salad from Assaggio's for a luncheon we had at work. Yum, yum, and yum. The lasagna was really darned tasty! The garlic knots were smothered in garlic and had plenty at the bottom of the pan. I can't tell you how much I like garlic! It's going to be permeating through my pores all day. I'm sure my coworkers will love me by 5 pm. The salad was a standard salad, but they put extra peppercinis in there. I think I could eat a whole bucket filled with those garlic knots. YUM!
I'd definitely like to try their pizza one day. I betcha it's outta this world!
