Sassorosso is an excellent, intimate restaurant with great emphasis on food. Located within walking distance of the world famous Petronas Towers, this restaurant is not flashy. This is an intimate, down-to-earth restaurant with the focus rightly centred on excellent cuisine. Beef carpaccio served with rocket salad, artichokes heart, celery, parmesan flakes and citronette dressing and olive oil from Crete RM$36.... More

I appreciated the wonderful service of the staff at Sassorosso, who were attentive and friendly. We had a party of 14 and everyone really enjoyed the dinner. I had the Jumbo Prawns on a bed of salad .... this has to be one of my best dinners of 2014 thus far :) My table-mates all enjoyed their food too. The... More

How exquisite the place looks does not mean the Italian food is anywhere near 'good' My friends and I ordered 1) Siciliana pizza 2) pesto pasta 3) Gnocchi and it's all shouldn't be called ITALIAN! Siciliana pizza says it's a pizza with eggplant which is really famous in Italy. But you can barely see or taste the eggplant. The pesto... More

Took pot luck visiting this restaurant recently in KL. excellent Italian food. Great service. Pappardelle with rabbit was one of the best pasta dishes that I have had in an Italian restaurant in Asia. Will definitely go back when next in KL.

My manager and I were traveling for business when we just happened to read about this place. The service was wonderful and they treated us first class despite we were not dressed up for the evening. They treated you as if you were family and were happy to answer any questions you had about the menu. Great food menu and... More

One of the best Italian places in KL, if a bit pricey, but the pizza is reasonable value and the other dishes we've tried have never failed to please. We go here a few times a year and have for the past several years. The food has been consistently good and we enjoy the attentive service and the atmosphere.

Well, service quality was still above average. However, waiters were asking me about ordering drinks several times before I actually made up my mind. Although they were not offensive, I dislike their repetitive asking. They were not like this during my last visit. Apart from this problem, they were quite great comparing to other KL fine dining restaurants. The eggplant... More

We've been here three times. Got here the first time based on TripAdvisor reviews and ordered pizzas to share as we were in a group of four and wanted to try more items on the menu. Pizzas were really good and so we didn't mind the high price. Service was so-so, we felt like the waiter was trying to push... More

First time visited on Saturday, full house. We were happy to sit by the bar having drinks while waiting. Greeted by the owner. Very much polite. Ordered a good bottle red. And a few pints. Famous crowd is around. The food must be good. Decided to have antipasti to start. Great choice to wash down beers and wine. And seafood... More
