My friend and I called on spec on a Friday evening and managed to get a table. Restaurant was lovely; staff friendly and helpful; food superb; 2 bottles of good and reasonably priced wine! The evening was not rushed and very enjoyable. Would recommend and will return.

This is just the perfect Italian restaurant for me. It has a traditional menu and its always hard to choose. Not big, need to book, some tables feel like they "in the corridor" because it is in a basement of a large Victorian building. Nevertheless, recommended 100%.

For beautiful freshly cooked Italian dishes you need go no further than Sasso. The pasta in particular is delicious. Light and airy with professional staff, this is perfect for either an informal lunch or special evening meal.

Was introduced to this restaurant by friends some time ago, and have been several times since. Was always good, with cheerful efficient service. Not so on my most recent visit however. The waiter was thoroughly miserable throughout the service, and when there was a mix up over a glass of wine, I thought he would throw his toys out of... More

Not been to Sasso for a while, there was a time when we were there 2 or 3 times a month! Things change, new restaurants open, so we've either elsewhere or not out at all. What I did realise when we ate was this is the best restaurant in Harrogate. The food is excellent, always has been and the menu... More

Very nice meal at Sasso! Food excellent, with good choice on the menu and beautifully cooked. Service excellent with very friendly staff. Complimentary pre starters were a little treat to wet the appetite prior to even better treats in store. Would recommend!

Saturday evening and we were pleasantly surprised to find it easy to park near this restaurant. First impressions were good. A pleasant welcome, tables not too close together, no blaring music and impeccable white linen on the tables. The complimentary pre-starter of tuna looked good but sadly went uneaten as I am veggie. The white bread with tapenade was rather... More

If you like Italian, then this is the place to go!!!!! Stefano, the owner/head chef is passionate about his food and it shows on each and every item on the menu.... Specials updated daily based on the best/freshest produce he can get from Italy. Wait staff are attentive and very helpful as well as knowledgeable about the items on offer.... More

I've been going to sasso for at least the last 2 years, usually once a month and I have to say that the standards are always good. Keep going!
