Should be ranked in the top 10% of restaurants in Harrogate

Given that Sasso has been referred to in The Times as a restaurant not to be missed, and that it has excellent reviews from some quality contributors, I would say it's low ranking in restaurants in Harrogate is an injustice.

Turned up unannounced last night but as usual Dominica and the team welcomed us and laid up a table for us with speed and precision. We had not had dinner at Sasso for a while as we have failed to find an excuse to be in Harrogate overnight (we live 150 miles away!). As usual we were reminded why this... More

We arrived at the restaurant and asked if they had a table. Was asked if we had booked and when it became apparent we had not, having just arrived in town, we were treated like second class citizens. We were shown to a table shoved in a corner. The staff wandering about barely gave us any help or service to... More

Very authentic Italian food. Excellent quality and service in apleasant surroundings. One of the best Italian meals I have had outside of Italy. Not cheap but worth it.

I visit Italy every year and am often left disappointed by the variety of food available at most Italian restaurants here. Sasso is definitely an exception. The food was amazing and I feel a true reflection of the real flavours in Italian cuisine. Service was efficient and friendly. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Most people's concept of Italian food is a pizza but for real Italian food (with a slight twist) you should visit Sasso. The restaurant itself is in a semi basement but don't let that put you off as it's light and airy clean décor creates a pleasant surrounding. The staff are all friendly and attentive at all times and nothing... More

This restaurant has been in Harrogate for as long as I can remember but tonight was the first time I have ever been... don't bother with another Italian restaurant in this town, Sasso is brilliant. A proper Italian menu, not a pizza joint. The amuse bouche was a nice touch at the start of the evening. The wine list is... More

A great meal. I had the sardines, followed by lasagne. My wife had tomoatos and mozzarella followed by tortelini. Both cooked very well, both tasted brilliant and both reasonably priced. We had a great evening, thank you.

I have been to Harrogate many times and eaten out in many restaurants, but this time we tried Sasso for the very first time and we were not disappointed. The service was superb, but not intrusive and the food really top notch. It was a Saturday so we had booked which was a good move as the place was buzzing.... More

This is a fabulous place. The food is fantastic. If you want good Italian food and something a little special this is the place. Not your run of the mill Italian in any way. The staff are helpful, the place is immaculate and the food is fab. You need to book though.
