Sunday evening in Helsinki we just wanted a bowl of pasta in a relaxed atmosphere and Sasso very ably delivered what we were looking for. The restaurant is spacious, light and airy. The pasta was very good with some nice modern touches. The price was solid, but not unreasonable for the quality. Service was there when needed and we didn’t... More

We had late lunch in Sasso with family on a Saturday. Due to the unusual time the place was quite empty and we had quite attentive service. Even our kids needs were taken seriously and promptly which, as a parent, was great! Location of the restaurant is awesome. You really can't get anymore central than this. Decor in Sasso is... More

I took a bunch of customers here for dinner. Location, decor , service and food were all good. I'm not a frequent traveler to Finland so cannot comment on whether it was good value or not as prices are so much higher so rated it 4 out of 5.

Tasty food that you might get (if lucky) can't save the dinner due to the absolute ignorance of the servants. The restaurant is located midst of the most central touristic area close to the market place at the harbour and would have plenty of well paying guests but they are simply turned down because service is simply not existent.

Took my wife here and we had a great evening. The food was great, especially the dessert. I really enjoyed the interior design.

Appetizer was amazing. But our main course of spaghetti with tomatoes and mozzarella, though the mozzarella was good, the tomatoes were roasted but cold. Desserts were great. Wines seemed a little over priced.

This was our last day in Helsinki for this trip. We chose Sasso as our last stop for dinner. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. We ordered the Sunday menu and the Sasso menu. Only the starters were fine. Risotto was salty. The lamb and beef were tough. Not worth for this price!

Have been to Sasso several times, they consistently deliver good food and service. Not a fan of the beef but all other dishes have been great.
