You have to know where you want to eat you won't just happen on sasse's. We had dinner for a small group of 7. With the quality of the food and past history we were surprised the restaurant wasn't packed. Our waitress was very attentive. There was a good selection of appetizers. There aren't too many places you see burrata... More

Still the best, especially to impress visitors with the food and service, atmosphere is fine but who cares once your food arrives.

We were in town visiting our daughter who was craving Italian. She researched and found this little gem. It has a small menu and with four of us ordering and tasting different things I can tell you it was all delicious. We were greeted warmly and the service was perfect. Chef came out and visited with us. A wonderful experience.... More

We have heard a number of great things about this place...esp from our friend who owns a local restaurant in the area. We have tried to go a few times and they have been swamp. The cards were in our favor tonight as we decided on a last minute date night. My husband called and they said come on in.... More

It was very good. My coworker had the veal scalopini. It was very good. This is a small restaurant and the chef talks to the patrons.... More

Found this place on trip adviser and would not have found it otherwise as its in an industrial estate. Do not be out of by this as the welcome was warm and the good fantastic. This was probably the best meal we had while on holiday as it was cooked fresh and served with a smile. Will definitely be back... More

Our first visit to this restaurant...off the beaten path...but certainly worth going to! The entrees were outstanding, especially the horseradish/blue cheese encrusted salmon! Everything was exquisitely prepared, served piping hot and was delicious. The panne cotta was the best I've had and could be accompanied by a variety of coffee drinks. Definitely will make a return visit. Chef Joseph has... More

This is an odd sort of place ... Italian, sort of. I guess it sees itself as higher end, so it doesn't have to offer mid-priced Italian dishes like cannelloni or pasta Bolognese. Nothing in the mid-price range. Pricing: two dishes for $29. three for $36. You can order two appetizers but you still pay $29! Yikes. Food was good.... More
