We were visiting Fort Meyers during spring training, and needed lunch before the game. We tried Sasse's on the basis of the Tripadvisor reviews, and were so glad we did! Don't be put off by the low key neighborhood, or the strip mall. When you enter the restaurant, you realize you are in the right place. The chef, and I'm pretty sure the owner, will greet you as you come in, and the servers will be sure to find you a comfortable and private table.
I was not a fan of the herbed butter, but the fresh tomato focaccia was very good. I ordered the chicken parm and my husband ordered the three cheese ravioli; both were outstanding. We eat out a lot, and often at Italian restaurants, and particularly the chicken parmigiana, was the best we've had yet, I also ordered the cucumber salad, and the dressing was light and full of flavor.
When we mentioned to our server that we were rushing and didn't have time for dessert, and that we were visitors to the city, our server brought out a plate of complementary brownies. They were chewy and chocolatey, and on the way out, the chef was sure to ask about our meal, and wish us a good day.
The only reason we're voting for only 4 stars, is the herbed butter was too strong, and our waitress was having a slow day, although very friendly and helpful. But we were thrilled with the food, the friendly service and comfortable atmosphere.
