With a dream, the love of good Italian food, and the enjoyment and appreciation derived from cooking and preparing food for the enjoyment of others, Dean Biales opened Assaggio’s Italian restaurant in April of 2004. Originally from  Long Island, New York, Dean followed that dream to Raleigh, NC and the rest is history.


Food + People

Food, family & friends have always been Dean’s passions. His inspiration to pursue a career in the food industry came from his mom, who loved cooking delicious & nutritious meals for her family. As a result, you will taste the love in the food we serve here at Assaggio’s.



All our food at Assaggio’s is prepared with the highest quality ingredients & to the highest standards possible. We put every effort into creating authentic Italian dishes that are fresh and flavorful and our wines are the perfect accompaniment. We appreciate you choosing Assaggio’s for your dining experience and our every effort will be toward making it a memorable one.
