Never thought moving to KL would include an excellent Italian dinning experience. Sassorosso is something special! I have been in at many different restaurants including Michelin Star Restaurant in Rome, but if a want to eat amazing Italian food and have quality wine, I visit Giovanni at Sassorosso in KL

Pizzas are true italian style and flavours, meat is imported and of... More

My husband/I have lived in Kuala Lumpur for over 8 years now and we live only a few minutes from Sassorosso but because we had another favorite Italian restaurant in the city, we passed by the signs for the restaurant (which is further down a side street) all this time without ever trying it. A few months ago on a... More

Following a three week trip in West Africa where food was less than ideal couldn't wait to get back to Sassorosso for the asparagus, truffle and poached egg special which had been teasing after they posted it on facebook shortly after I departed. In one word – delicious. Asparagus was perfectly al dente and although the truffle wasn’t the phenomenal... More

I love this place! Food is so good. Just had the baby goat today. Succulent and tender. Pastas are amazing. Steak is so good. Fantastic service and a good range of desserts too. Love this place. Will definitely come and visit again. A must go if you are in kl. perfect view of twin towers from the outside

Food is just so so but service is great. Wouldn't say it's worth the money tho. The only thing that were good was the wine and the bread, sadly.

Sassorosso is a really good find in KL. The food is delicious and well priced. The restaurant has a lovely ambience and the staff are excellent. If Pizzas are your thing they have a good wood burning oven. Worth a visit, you will not be disappointed.
