Decent food, excellent wine list, friendly service

We ate at Sasso twice during our short stay in Helsinki. The food is very good, Italian, with their own small charcuterie where they offer a selection of excellent prosciutto and other cold meats. Meals were good, hearty fare for the icy wintry conditions outside. The biggest draw (for us) was the... read more

Sea bass was great. They lost my trust on vegan and seem to not have a good knowledge of how the food is prepared. Desert was delicious and wine selection quite ample.

I came here with my parents on a Wednesday night. The service was fine but the food really wasn't great. Mostly overpriced and not well constructed dishes.

Enjoyed the dinner with my wife and friends, all entres and primis were very delicious. We had a nice evening and everybody scored the food excellent. The waitress could have been more helpful with the spilt champagne. The dude in the next table (properly drunk or high on something) kept interrupting us before he did a runner. Poor judgement by...

We were a large group and had ordered the same menu for the entire group in advance. Our three course menu (starter, main, desert) took altogether about 2,5 hours, with no one coming even once in between to ask how we were doing. We made all our drink orders either when the food arrived or by flagging down a waiter.... More

I have visited in last 8 months three times Sasso. Had a different menus each time. And every time experience been the same - disappointment. When you have entered to the restaurant you immediately notice that fish has been served and cooked here. It is not a nice welcome unless you are at the seafood bar outdoors next to the... More

Sasso is very close to the open, it is really a place where not only the meal is really good, but the tables are properly laid and the restaurant is spacious and very well designed. The menu has a good choice of food ,but not the usual same things you find in many places, done with good taste and and... More
