Romantic Valentines Day

V-Day is right around the corner and you are probably trying to figure out how to mark the occasion. Mike and I don’t do gifts, we both have way to much stuff (Marie Kondo we need you!!) and we would rather treat ourselves to a nice dinner or go do something fun together. This week I visited Assaggio’s in the North End and had the most delicious Italian food I have had in a very long time. There are so many options for Italian food in the North End but Assaggio’s really stood out to me. They recently renovated the interior of the restaurant, it is modern, chic, and cozy. The dinning room ambiance is perfect for a Valentines date. Upstairs they have a beautiful new lounge that offers a more casual vibe, perfect for a night out with your “galentines.” Assaggio’s offers old school class and service but with a modern menu.

We started with some cocktails and appetizers, I can never resist a burrata so we obviously ordered that! We got the charcuterie plate, my friend Maddie got an Italian classic a Negroni and I went with the house specialty mojito. The burrata was perfect, and I firmly believe a charcuterie plate is the perfect way to start an Italian feast! The staff was so lovely, our server made so amazing recommendations for the main course! I got the Veal Chop she recommended, it was stuffed with Parma prosciutto and Italian fontina, and I think it was my favorite thing ever! It can with a side of sweet potatoes slices lightly baked. Maddie went with my normal go-to the Gnocchi alla Sorrentina, they were little potato pillows of heaven. We decided to split the Grigliata, an amazing seafood plater that looked as good as it tasted! It consisted of grilled scallops, shrimp, calamari, swordfish, and a grilled lobster tail! If you love seafood you have to get the Grigliata! It is perfect for sharing on date night too!

We finished the night with a pair of espresso martinis, a tiramisu, and cannolis. It was all delicious and satisfied my sweet tooth! If you are looking for a beautiful restaurant, with amazing service and food for Valentines Day, Assaggio’s is the place to go! We had such an amazing meal, the next day I couldn’t wait to get home from work to have my left overs! Thank you so much to Assaggio’s for hosting us it was truly impeccable.
