This place is in great location right next to the market square in Helsinki. You will reach here easily with by public transport. Place is roomy, light and well decorated. We had two pasta dishes and one risotto with trout. My pasta with dried ham and fresh peas was quite good combination but there was too much of the ham... More

I visited Sasso with one of my dear friends and we had high expectations about the restaurant. Sadly our dinner didn't live up to them. The food was okay, but nothing too special. It was missing a lot of seasoning, which didn't make me excited at all. The pasta was quite nice, but nothing too remarkable. This is something my... More

My wife and I dined here during the week of July 12, 2015. The server took over 25 minutes before even coming to our table to greet us, then another 15 minutes before they brought bread over. Service was extremely slow. The Helsinki couple to our side started talking to us and also noted the very slow service. We will... More

We just arrived in Helsinki and since my husband was in pain, he wanted to pick a restaurant quickly. The fancy restaurant near the fountain in the middle of the shopping area suggested this restaurant. There weren't many people in there and unfortunately the prices were high and food too heavy for my liking. I split the White Fish, Siikaa,... More

Sasso is Northern Italian restaurant. Luckily You don't just get pizza or pasta but much morendiverse set of tastes, especialy if You choose menu of 3-4 foods, which is highly recommendated. Best Italian restaurant in Helsinki, if You look for bit classier option. Also, check Benjams Bistro for great, cheaper and more simple good Italian food in Helsinki.

Having been recommended by a colleague we had dinner in Sasso and it did exceeded our expectations. The pea risotto was very good, with excellent sweetbread, and so was the crayfish pasta. The pasta included big chunks of very tasty crayfish. I'd say it was the best crayfish I ate during the whole week in Helsinki. As a main course... More

We visited the restaurant Sasso on a Saturday late-afternoon and the place was half empty. We didn't mind about that but were pleased to have a peaceful dinner. The menu had six choices of antipasti, four primos and five secondos. The primos (risottos and pastas) can be chosen as a main dish as well but then the prize is higher.... More
