The quality of food is bad especially if the cook has to rely on flavorings and not his/her own abilities to cook then he/she should not boast about it. Its a shame. We all had to combat our thirst the whole night. Sorry for the bad review but you have to be honest about your food and services.

Pan-fried foie gras served with caramelized mango, sweet & sour sauce was the highlight of the night. Big fat pieces (not flat and floppy) cooked to perfection, hard and crispy on the outside and soft (not fluidly) texture throughout the inside. The sauce and the grilled mango are perfect combination - mouth watering dish you have to try! Mushroom risotto... More

The food here deserves more than 3 stars, good pizza, carpaccio starter excellent and the mains were well made too. I shared a mixed seafood platter which when it did eventually arrive (30 Minutes after everyone had finished eating their food) was very good. The owner/chef, a Milanese who'd been in KL for 18 years is friendly and greets everyone.... More

Booked for a quality family meal has my daughter had flown in from Hong Kong. AlI I can say is fantastic top end food and drink for a price of about £50 a head. The restaurant is about 10mins walk from KLCC and in a street away from the touristy trap restaurants. Well worth a visit.

Have not visited here in awhile but was not disappointed the food was brilliant and would highly recommend it. The service was ok but could be Better. My only complaint was that we were seated so close with other dinners and the staff should be better organized on this. The veal with mash potatoes was brilliant as was the escargots.... More

Great food, style and service 10/10 for the food, service and atmosphere, very expensive however. The host/owner is active, sociable and involved which added to the enjoyment. Great for a romantic dinner or a business meeting. Wine list is extensive but again expensive.

Hard to find really good fine dining Italian restaurants in KL but Sassorosso is the exception. It's in a house on an offshoot of busy Yap Kwan Seng. The Italian guy who runs this place (Giovanni) knows his stuff so he makes good recommendations for both food and wine. Not much more to say except come try this place.
