“Disappointment!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We were a party of four persons on October 12, 2013. This Italian restaurant is apparently affiliated with the Astier Restaurant nearby where we had a delightful meal three days earlier, but the Sassotonda bears no comparison to the Astier in the quality of its food. One of our first courses (quail legs) was quite good, but the other choices of our party were not. Our main plats ranged from uninteresting (the spaghetti and a veal dish) to absolutely inedible in the penne pasta with clams which was seriously undercooked and prepared with nothing at all to bring flavor to the dish. Our advice? Save your money and go somewhere, anywhere else! This restaurant is overpriced and takes no responsibility when a dish is returned uneaten to the kitchen.

“Truly wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We had heard about Sassatondo from a foodies blog we read before we came to Paris. It is one of the few really good restaurants open on Sunday evenings. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were treated like old friends. And on top of the friendly atmosphere the food was wonderful. Of paticular note was the chicken fracases and the gnocchi. The seafood spaghetti was also delicious. The service continued at a high and friendly level through the evening. Definitely a must place to eat if you're in the mood for Italian food in Paris.

“Overpriced for small portions of average quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

As with the previous reviewer (Lucien) we (4 persons) came here due to other recommended restaurants being full. On looking at the menu we saw that there was a tasting menu at 50 euros per head - but this was only available if all of us had it. Other options were almost as expensive- so we just had one main course, which with a bottle of wine and 2 coffees (total) came to 150 euros for the 4 of us. Portions were small, of average quality as was the service. Defnitely the worst experience of our 5 evening meals in Paris, where usually we spent 90-100 euros per couple -for 3 courses, coffee and wine.

“There was no other place available”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

A rainy Saturday night in the Republique area and all recommended restaurants were closed or full, so we ended up here on the last available table. Food was a bit boring considering that it was the most expensive meal in our holiday.
