“Want to impress? Out of the way gem that will make even the toughest foodie happy!”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Salad was huge with enough cheese to feed a family of four. Short ribs fell of the bone, scallops were to die for, veal chop was the best I've ever tasted and the pork shank was in a class by itself. This is the place you take your friends and family when you want to share an evening that's about more than just eating.

“Excellent hidden gem!!!!”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Food was excellent and ambiance is very pleasant. We found this place through a Groupon promotion as it is such a hidden gem that can only be found by word of mouth or promotional specials. Very enjoyable and personable - Mr. Snyderman (owner) made his rounds and spoke to every individual table.making it a very personal experience. Thank you for a lovely evening and a wonderful meal... We will definately be back with friends...

“Terrific Meal”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

First of all, don't judge a book by it's cover. The location of this restaurant is not ideal, and the outside does not look great, but that all changes once you get in the door. The owner greeted us at the door and could no be more hospitable. They have a barrel room, with a nice wine selection. The menu is specialties are braised dinner. I had the braised ribs and they fell off the bones. My wife had the braise scallops and they were cooked to profection. This restaurant also has wine taste once a month.

“Outstanding food, VERY REASONABLY PRICED, lovely place!”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

The shrimp in spicy olive oil w/garlic and mushrooms at $10 plus one of their HUGE salads and crusty bread could be a meal. Shortribs were huge and superrich in a deep wine based sauce served w/superbly spiced and garliced veggies...steak was tender and juicy and well cooked. Flourless chocolate cake very rich and again a giant portion for the $6...EVERYTHING really could be shared.
Make their own Mozzarella.
Server said the owner drives to Imokalee to pick out the best tomatoes.
The attention to detail shows and the desire to provide great tasting food for a real bargain price is just fantastic.
Yes, you will feel the need to lock the car, but inside it is an Oasis and the neighborhood is much better than described. ..we WILL go back.

“Out of the way GEM! terrific FOOD”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

One of the Best Restaurants I have been to in FORT MYERS. This CHEF know how to cook! I am so glad I finally went to SASSE. I used a groupon and went with some friends.. VEAL CHOP was fantastic.. The scallop dish was cooked to perfection. Service was above average... Desserts were home made and above average as well. The decor is atypical for FORT myers area WHICH was refreshing...had a European flavor to me...Unique and inviting. Would definitely go back and plan on doing so soon.
