Highly recommend Sasso. Couldn't fault anything. I'd love to see a Veal Scaloppine on the menu. Based on the quality of other dishes we had, I have a feeling it might just be on point.

Excellent food though the Tuna Tartar could have been fresher, we might give that a miss next time. The music was a little energetic and night-clubby and not a good match for what was really delicious food and drink.

I highly recommend the Native Sbagliato and thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the meal. Absolutely will be making a return visit.

My partner and I attended the New Years Eve dining experience at Sasso. We felt very welcomed by the warm atmosphere of the restaurant and the extremely friendly service of the staff. We enjoyed a wide variety of food and flavours and everything was so fresh and cooked to perfection. Special mention to the Tuscan steak - just melts in your mouth! We will definitely be back!

Greeted warmly. Entree (gnocchi fritto) was nice but knives were blunt or not the correct knife. Found the tomato based Sugo was very watery so that affected everything it was on but primarily the pizza. So what would have been a lovely crisp thin base pizza, (Capricciosa) was soggy. The service was excellent and a great 70’s music vibe. For us this did not make up for the food score.

Ciao Giuls, Thank you so much for the review, some good feedback for the team. The head chef has recently changed his dough, he's using a semi wholemeal with a 72hr fermentation. Please come in and try it, be great to get your feedback this time around. Grazie, Sasso team

My friend and I can in for an early Christmas celebration after wanting to come in and experience Sasso since it opened and we were honestly not disappointed! The restaurant itself is stunning and everything down to the music choices were so enjoyable. Food was outstanding and really different from anything available at the moment. Enjoyed the experience and have been raving about it to everyone and anyone who asks (or doesn’t).

I loved the idea of a new restaurant close to my local area. something hip and happening. really busy for a Wednesday night so I thought I can not go wrong. The food is really good quality, the fish is fresh and the baby squid is just cooked. All is let down by the amount of salt applied to the fresh young food. The batter on the squid is caked in salt and the greens on the side of the whole fish have not been washed. grit does not go well with fresh fish. The product in the restaurant is top quality, but the way it is prepared lets it down greatly. The bread is stodgy and lets the top-quality product down. I hope they hit their groove and iron out the bumps. Has a lot of promise.

Ciao Manuela, Thank you for your feedback, we have noticed this is the same review left on google, so I will reply with the same comments. We discussed the feedback with the chef and he will be ensuring the calamari is less salted moving forward. Please contact us using the contact details on open table when you are ready to come in next so we can personally look after you. Again, we hope you have a great holiday season! Grazie! Sasso team

Our expectations were clearly too high. We wanted Italian, tasty food with good service, in a nice environment. Sasso fell short on every step. Waiters were nice and friendly but clearly new and inexperienced. During our meal we had too many visits asking how everything was, to the point of getting annoying. When we wanted to pay, there were no one to be seen. Food was rather bland. The traffic noise out side was really bad, and the music inside far too loud for a dining restaurant.
