This charming restaurant tucked away in the heart of KL is worthy of a visit. We were late for our reserved time due to traffic, weather and unforeseen circumstances but were warmly welcomed when we finally announced our presence. My friend ordered foie gras for an appetizer and although I had never tried it I was pleasantly surprised. The wine... More

It was quite a disappointment with the wood fired pizza supposed to be really good according to comments from others We ordered pasta (Risotto I think)/ margarita pizza/ Hawaiian chicken pizza/ salad ... Pasta was actually pretty good although the portion is just simply too little ... Pizza? Needless to say, I expect much more, it's $ to $70 each... More

Dear Senior Contributor, Thank you for taking time commenting about Sasssorosso. Thriving to always improve both F&B quality and service, we appreciate all the constructive comments. It is, indeed, one of few occasions when we receive negative comments about our pizza. Coming to pricing, please refer to your bill, the prices for Margherita RM36, Hawaiian RM46 & Chicken (Pollo) RM46.... More

Love the personal service that Giovani presents! The lobster pasta is to die for and perfect for sharing of 2 person. The tuna steak is delish!

Very efficient, very knowledgeable. A fine balance between "always present" and "faded into the background " Giovanni Koromilas the business owner came by our table and recommended some... More

If you love wines, and especially Italian wines, this is the place that won't miss your expectations. First, we were led to a secluded dining space for three of us. We picked a popular Italian red Amarone. And I got myself a special order - Gnocchi with White Truffle. It was a great dining experience with nice wine and taste.... More

Went for dinner with my wife and i found the whole experience amazing. We have been to several Italian restaurants across South East Asia, and in many of them you find a very close to Italy type of experience. However, in the case of Sassorosso, it exceeded our expectations, even for many restaurants in Italy. The place itself make you... More

We dropped by at the restaurant after I had an opportunity to have enjoyed their set lunch on a business meeting and thought the food was decent enough to warrant a dinner. Besides I did not partake during lunch so it was a chance to check out their wines as well. The restaurant is located in a formerly residential area... More

After two weeks of Malaysian food, I wanted something closer to home. Loved the appetizers platter and the oven-baked pizza. Great service to, nice chatting to you, Giovanni.

The food and drinks served here were excellent and I have no adverse comment to make on this. I would have preferred to dine out on the patio which looked beautiful and relaxing but it was an unusually warm night, so we chose to go indoors and took one of the tables among a fairly large crowd. The atmosphere here... More

Dear Madame, We are really glad you found the dinner truly enjoyable – I am sure you agree that prices, which are clearly stated on our menus and drinks list, are actually in line with the quality of our dishes.
