Have been here a few times now, the pasta dishes were excellent, the pizza,s were excellent and the staff and service could not be faulted, prices were run of the mill. I do feel though that it was a bit over the top to charge $3.00 corkage for my partner to open his can of coke which he drank from... More

While on a break to Yamba we decided to stay in and order pizza. We wanted local not the usual franchise and found Sassafras offered delivery. The Pizza was delivered in 40 minutes but wasn't hot or very nice. The dough was soggy and topping has congealed. Never mind though we were hungry and scoffed the lot.

We ordered 2 different pizzas - Three Cheese and De Casa - plus the GF dessert. The pizzas were utterly delicious and so was the dessert, but the serving size of the latter was quite small for the price so it was not good value. Would return for the pizza.

I so wanted to love the food here but the seafood in the pasta special was very overlooked, there was an abundance of oil left in my bowl after eating the pasta dish and it was pretty pricy for what it was. Was Ok but should have been cooked better. Service from the backpacker girls was excellent. Would try again... More

Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Extremely friendly staff - beautiful Canadian girl who booked us a table and attended us during the meal, and the owner who was super attentive and welcoming. Food was well priced and high quality. I really enjoyed the famous Yamba Prawn Pizza and the specials meals from the blackboard were excellent. Dad had the steak which... More

Arrived in Yamba in evening during wind and rain, unloaded car and dogs then got on with organising the takeaway pizza from Sassafras. This has become our ritual at the start of Yamba holidays. The pizzas were piping hot and full of deliciousness. Hands down favourite pizzas ever!
