Ever have one of those nights where all your dinner options seem to melt away. Well that happened to us on our 2nd night in Helsinki. Due to the lateness of the hour we had few options and by chance we ended up at Sasso. I'm glad it worked out. It was an enjoyable experience, bright atmosphere with a nice... More

We booked a table for the mother's day lunch, attracted by the menu. It was somewhat a disappointment. The three-course meal was ok, but definitely expected more for a restaurant like this. And not much Italian in the food we had. Nothing stood out, no one of us felt this is the place we want to come back to. Service... More

I have visited this restaurant also before but at this time I was pretty disappointed. Carpaccio was "loaded" on a very very small plate. The only decoration was a very small slice of melon. Main food was ok but dessert ice cream was served in a kiosk style paper cup without any sauce, fruits etc. Maybe kitchen had a bad... More

Had business dinner at Sasso and the service was excellent. Not to imposing but still attentive. The food was good, nothing extraordinary but good and tasty but not very Italian apart from the ok Chianti wine served. A nice place to have an informal business dinner while being well taken care of.

Had a dinner thre, two persons and three courses & wines. Nothing to complain about the service, it was friendly and everything worked properly. But the food was only average, nothing special to remember. Being honest, we expected more. The athmosphere of the restaurant is nice, also the location is central, But unfortunately the food was only average, nothing more.

We took the four course menu, but not the wine menu. All courses were really good tasting and the service was friendly and professional. Decor was also really good! This is a place we would recommend for anyone who wants a good tasting dinner in a relaxed place!

We visited here in Feb 2015 for a 3 course meal with 6 other people.The food was really delicious and was a reasonable price for Helsinki. My partner opted for the black octopus risotto, and I chose the horse sausage bigoli. Both were full of flavour, although there was far too much pasta in my dish! We can highly recommend... More

This restaurant has its inspiration and choice of wines from northern Italy. After great meals in Piemonte recently, we could register that if you like this food, you could just as well go to Helsinki! Food and wine was very good, and best of all was the service. So if in Helsinki and looking for a nice place to eat,... More

I must point that I love good restaurants and I enjoy food in a place where I can just relax. In this restaurant the misunderstood the idea of "al dente" pasta with raw pasta (twice!). Second time they just try to explain (as if I was an idiot) that pasta was cooked fine (I just asked them to try it... More
