Probably would have never noticed this place if not for this app. Great service great food. It's a little off the beaten path. Doesn't feel like the fastest part of town. However, won't hesitate to go back.

Celebrating with friends we found a unique restaurant in Fort Myers. There were 8 of us and not a single morsel of food was left behind. The chicken Parmesan was out of this world. Everything was great, salads, entrees, dessert, wine, all great.

A friend and I found Sasse's on Yelp. The first impression upon walking in is this place is lovely and has some tablecloths making it feel 'finer'. The chef worked behind the half wall of the bistro style and cheerfully greeted us. The menu was...More
