Assaggio corrects food violations at Ala Moana restaurant

The Assaggio restaurant at Ala Moana Center passed a follow-up inspection today after correcting multiple food safety violations cited by state health officials last week.

State health inspectors issued a yellow “conditional pass” placard to the business Thursday, requiring the restaurant to address violations that included improper labeling of live clams, no paper towels in the employee restroom and improper storage of food and utensils. A manager on duty also did not have a food safety certification.

A state Department of Health spokeswoman said in an e-mail that inspectors returned today and “all violations have been corrected. The establishment has been issued a green placard and no further follow-ups are required to address the routine inspection conducted on 1/24/2019.”

Food establishments may face fines of up to $1,000 a day per violation if they refuse to correct violations, health officials said.
