I love Assagio's.  Just a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner if you are in the mood for Italian food.  While the prices at the Kahala Bistro seem to be getting higher, the quality of the food, great service and portion size keep me coming back.  The first thing you get after water at Assagio's is fresh, warm homemade bread.  The small loaves of love keep coming throughout your meal if you want them.  I think the wait staff asked us a dozen times if we wanted more bread.  We ALWAYS start with the Cold Antipasto Salad ($9.90).  This is probably my favorite salad ever on this blog.  Love the Pickled Vegetables, Cheese, Anchovies and Dressing.  Only complaint on this visit was that there was not much Romaine Lettuce.  I tried the Veal and Shrimp Piccata ($32.90) and liked everything about it except the price.  The Veal was lightly breaded and had a nice flavor.  Loved the Pasta which I requested with garlic and spice.  Shrimp were cooked perfectly and tasty.  The Shrimp and Chicken Picante ($31.90) was "spicy" as advertised.  My wife asked for some vegetables with the pasta and the waiter was happy to provide it.  She liked the dish but said the Chicken did not have much flavor.
My daughter picked the Lasagna ($22.90) after looking at the menu for about 30 seconds.  When the dish arrived I thought it was huge.  Still paying $23 for a piece of Lasagna seems a bit expensive to me.  My daughter devoured the layers of pasta but said there was too much cheese and sauce.  I tasted it and thought it was great.  Service on this night was fantastic.  Water glasses were filled when only half empty, plenty of bread offered and the staff checked on our table numerous times.  Really cannot go wrong at Assagio's.  Just wish the prices were lower but I understand the cost of doing business in Hawaii.  Click link below for previous post on Assagio's Kahala Bistro:
