    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "I visited sasso again during my annual visit to Harrogate. The food is always excellent and this time was no exception. I will definately be back"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "We visited Harrogate for a short weekend so only had two evenings out so we didn't want a disappointment! Sasso has a delightful ambience with paintings of Italy all around the restaurant, the food quite delicious, the service was just right and the Maitre d' charming. All four of us had a great evening."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our meal at Sasso. Both of us experimented & tried things we wouldn't normally pick - I went for the pasta with chicken & bacon in a curry sauce. An unusual combination but absolutely delicious. We treated ourselves to 3 courses each & were surprised at how reasonable the amount our total bill was. If only we lived closer, we'd love to go back!"

  • "We enjoyed very much enjoyed our meal at Sasso. Good food excellent service. Very enjoyable experience."
    dined on 19/02/2014
  • "We dined with you for valentine and was very impressed with both the food and service. We had pasta dishes and the pasta was delicious. It was a nice surprise to see half bottles of wine on the list as usually we have to order a full bottle and only one of us drinks wine so that was great. We will definately be back."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Regular customers at sister coffee-shop/pizzeria (Marconis) we decided to try Sasso. Menu & specials board had wide spectrum of choices and all 3 of us had difficulty in making our mind up the range of food on offer was so tempting. We opted not to have starters and save ourselves for sweet. The waiter brought out some home made bread and paste, and then a plate of tiny tartlets whilst we waited for our mains. The main courses were perfect, the sea bass a very generous portion, the risotto the best my friend had ever tasted. Lemon tart and limoncello sorbet was out of this world and the ice-cream was clearly had made and finished the meal off perfectly. Service throughout was outstanding and I would highly recommend Sasso to anyone."
    dined on 18/01/2014
  • "Our party was 4 in number and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the restaurant. The food was excellent together with very good service. the dishes on the menu far above a traditional Italian restaurant. There were some specials which were enjoyed by a number in the party Overall a great experience"

    dined on 07/01/2014
  • "Good food,great atmosphere,good wine and outstanding value.Everything was absolutely delicious. Gorgeous risotto with lobster starter and sublime Venison main course.Good selection of wine by the glass white Bourgogne 2004 and Amarone 2007 both perfect for my meal."
    dined on 06/01/2014
  • "Went to Sasso for New Years Eve in a group of 4 during a visit to Harrogate ,with no idea what to expect we were very pleasantly surprised. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left the staff were excellent, had the rare ability to be there when needed but not be obtrusive . The restaurant itself was very pleasant however the food was outstanding ;can recommend the lamb shank and butternut squash ravioli. All in all a great find and a great night ."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "Really disappointed as we have been coming here a number of times a year for quite some time. New chef? Starer of scallops and berries sounded unusual but just didn't work. Ordered calves liver as a main and was surprised when I wasn't asked how I would like it or warned that it is served pink (as in all other restaurants). Should have sent it back - over cooked and tough. My partners main of the Fish special was bland and ok. The wine list is very pricey so you would expect the food to be excellent - sadly no. The table behind us did send their meal back for being overcooked, which we should have done."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "A very warm and friendly greeting awaits you as soon as you enter Excellent choice on the menu, superb quality"
    dined on 06/12/2013
  • "My sister daughter and I had a lovely night out at Sassoon after a great day together in Harrogate. The staff were friendly, the food first class and all at a great price. Will definitely go again. Would have liked a wider vegetarian menu though!"
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "Best Italian restaurant I've ever been to. Simple. Skill and pride in just the best standard of service. Invisible when we wanted to chat but magically there the instant we wanted something. Attentive but not patronising or overbearing. Surprising standard of food for the money, fish dishes a speciality and not the "usual". If you're like me and don't usually go for restaurant wine - overpriced and overrated? No - reset needed. Save up and buy a bottle with your meal at Rossos. The wine appears expensive - but we had half a bottle of red wine for £16 and it was one of the best reds I've ever tasted. Laid back Italian ambience that let us relax. I don't normally do reviews, this is an exception worth making."
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "The food here was outstanding, I would highly recommend it!! It is top rate quality and the waiters are most helpful at helping both anyone that has questions about the menu, or recommending an entry or dessert. If you want a top-rated experience without paying too much, this is the place."
    dined on 06/11/2013
  • "Attentive staff and friendly welcome. The owner recommended a red wine which was superb, I even took a photo of the bottle to see if I can get it elsewhere! The food came at the right time and was delicious and was presented very well. The dinner was on a Monday night and it shows the popularity of this restaurant as it had many diners on a normally quiet night."
    dined on 04/11/2013
  • "Great evening out; food and wine of a good, reasonably priced quality. Staff friendly. Altogether a good night out."
    dined on 01/11/2013
  • "My friend and I went to Sasso's after a morning in the Harrogate Spa. Sasso's has a super lunch menu with 2 courses for £10. The portions are small and perfect. The food is well cooked and served. An all round bargain."
    dined on 25/10/2013
  • "Nicely presented and tasty fresh food with excellent service and good reasonably priced Italian wines particularly the Sangiovese."
    dined on 25/10/2013
  • "When I told people we were going to Sasso the general opinion was, " good restaurant but very expensive". I feel in terms of value for the quality of food we received it was very good. Admittedly we only had a main each and a bottle of house wine, but the reason we did not have anything else was that quantity of food we received meant we did not need anything else (and I have quite an appetite). So we had a meal out for under £60 which to me is the minimum you expect to spend on a decent meal out."
    dined on 21/09/2013
  • "Went to sasso for a pre theatre dinner, we had the two course menu @ £8.9605 each, great value. Lovely food. The atmosphere wasn't as great as it could be but we were there at 6.30pm on a Monday so to be expected! I'm sure on a weekend evening or later on it would normally be buzzing"
    dined on 16/09/2013
  • "A really fabulous evening of great food & great service. The staff and food could not have been better!"
    dined on 16/09/2013
  • "Excvellent evening. Dinner menu had some unusual and delicious options. All served beautifully and not overpriced. Very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended."
    dined on 06/09/2013
  • "Was there for a birthday celebration. We got soaking wet on the way and when we got there, they gave a change of shirt to my other half and let me to the ladies to try and dry off. They also put a candle in the desert and were just really friendly all round. Food was very good, ambience very good. Couldn't really fault it."
    dined on 23/08/2013
  • "Delicious food, good wine and a great evening, a very relaxed atmosphere. Our meal was booked for 9pm, it was obvious that the restaurant had been very busy earlier . The staff seemed to be a little rushed and appeared to be trying to re energise themselves. We still had a lovely time and enjoyed our food as always."
    dined on 24/08/2013
  • "First class food and service at a reasonable price"
    dined on 20/08/2013
  • "Having read all the positive reviews I had no hesitation in booking Sasso for a birthday meal. Overall the experience was a good one. Friendly, helpful staff and a pleasant atmosphere. It would have been nice if a request to see whether an item not on the menu might be available, had not been met with a shrug of the shoulders and a determined no! I can't say that we were 'blown away' by the quality of the food or by the venue. It was a good enough option for a night out in Harrogate. But there are plenty of others too!"
    dined on 16/08/2013
  • "We had a very enjoyable dinner at Sasso's the service and food were excellent. We will certainly use the restaurant again."
    dined on 16/08/2013
  • "First visit to Harrowgate and chose Sasso based on reviews on this site. Meal was for my wife's birthday, and we were not dissapointed. First thing to note is that the restaurant does not look anything special from the outside. In fact the cafe along the road looks more appealing initially as it looked busy and had an external buzz, however , Sasso was (being in tne basement was deceptively busy). The service and food were really excellent when we were there. I would happily go back. Thanks for a good night :-)"
    dined on 09/08/2013
  • "From entry into the restaurant the staff were very attentive and the service and food was excellent. The restaurant was busy - always a good sign - and everyone was enjoying themselves and the ambience was good. Would definitely return to sample the pasta dishes."
    dined on 09/08/2013
  • "Very nice restaurant and amazing food not quite worth the money and possibly a little to much seafood on the menu but great service and friendly staff would go again but not in a rush."
    dined on 01/08/2013
  • "We enjoyed our meal very much. We had the filet steak salad as a starter it was well presented with and very pleasant dressing. The fried fish special was good but the dish did not benefit from char grilling as it left too much of a carbon taste in my opinion. The lamb shank as you would expect was a very generous portion. The meat was succulent the sauce did have a slight fresh wine taste as if it had been thinned out at the last minute. We didn't have pudding. The service was professional but impersonal. It was disappointing to have to ask fro a drink when we received our menus rather than be offer the opportunity to order one."
    dined on 31/07/2013
  • "Some were sat outside .... As such lovely weather, but alas only looks out on the road. Seps down to restaurant .. Quite steep. Always a good meal. Staff not very attentive."
    dined on 15/07/2013
  • "Another lovely meal at Sasso! This time I asked them to cook me a gluten free pasta carbonnara which they did without any problem and it was delicious! We had a 3 course meal and it was all of a very high standard. Staff were knowledgeable about gluten free requirements and checked to see that my choice for starter and dessert were OK . Definitely would recommend to anyone its just a shame we can only go when we are at the trade show!"
    dined on 13/07/2013
  • "We had a fantastic evening meal as all their recipes are from their Italian born chef using a mixture of local and Italian produce. Beautiful Italian bubbly as well."
    dined on 28/06/2013
  • "My wife and I had been staying in Harrogate for a few days and so I decided to search TripAdvisor for restaurants, narrowing it down to a short list of 19. Having spent many years travelling to and from Italy, I love Italian food so I'm always looking for that authentic taste of Italy. We arrived at Sasso and were warmly welcomed by all the staff. Soon we were presented with an excellent menu and wine list and, after a glass of Prosecco we ordered our food. The first course arrived within 15mins... It was excellent! Cooked to perfection and presented by a chef with an obvious passion for food. The mains were just as superb - bennissimo!! Well worth a visit if you like authentic Italian cuisine! And we will be going back soon!"

    dined on 31/05/2013
  • "I have now been to this restaurant 3 times and have booked again. I frequently visit Italy and this has to be the closest I have seen to the real thing- we love it!"
    dined on 28/05/2013
  • "Great meal, friendly helpful staff, nice atmosphere, great food! Need I say more..... If you're in Harrogate I'd firmly recommend Sasso!"
