Just had a great meal, free mini starter included, also the wine (Chianti 2015 - 20,95) was very bold and delicious and very affordable. Only downside, the very slow service, given we where the only table for over 40 minutes, we would have expected a bit more attentive staff, we did indulge but were not planing on spending 2,5 hours...

Very nice basement restaurant, staff friendly on arrival and let us have a drink at the bar whilst we looked at the menu! The food is superb with a nice mixture of things and quite a lot that's not pasta! We had sardines and cattalana followed by beef and a tortellini ham then an amazing merangue and ice cream concoction!... More

We've lived in Harrogate and never tried Sasso before. From the outside you would think it was tiny, but once inside it is really spacious and very pleasant. The food was delicious. My fiancé had pheasant for main and was amazed at how moist it was. I had risotto with Italian sausage, which sounds strange but was very, very tasty.... More

Never fails to provide a fantastic experience. The ambiance, staff and food all combine to make a great night. The fish salad starter was brilliant and everyone in my party were envious. They now have there own gin with special secret recipe, brilliant and unfortunately very moreish. Will be back.

This was our first visit to this restaurant having been recommended to it by friends. Very attentive and friendly staff and excellent food. The menu is interesting, difficult to make a choice as so much was appealing. We had a great evening here and we will most certainly be back.

I took my friend here after a recommendation and I can confirm it was fabulous. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and great with his wine recommendations. The food was delicious and fantastic quality. The restaurant itself has a lovely ambiance. Book before you go, you won't be disappointed.

Went in on spec on a Friday night at about 6.50 and just managed to get in for the Early Bird. At £12.95 for three courses this was excellent value. The service was great, the staff friendly and the food was to die for. Three courses and a glass of wine each and the whole lot came to less than... More

Not at all as you would expect an Italian to be. Modern and sterile atmosphere. Found the food to be a bit hit and miss. Calves liver definitely a miss. Thick and overcooked. Certainly not a place to return to for me.

We visited this restaurant a couple or more years ago and it was not bad, but now it is positively marvellous. Atmosphere and service were both excellent. Interesting menu and good wine list also helped. We had a Pinot Nero at £21.95 and a Verdicchio at £21.75 - both excellent quality and value. I had burrata with pickled veg as... More
