We have just returned from a weekend away in Harrogate. We booked this restaurant for Saturday evening. What a find, a brilliant taste of Italy hidden away in Harrogate. Fantastic food, brilliant staff and a great atmosphere. Well worth searching out this little gem if you are visiting the town. We would like to thank the staff and owner for... More

Every single dish was terrible. We ordered bruschetta and they served toasted tiger bread! (Tesco style), seafood salad overloaded with celery but no seasoning or flavour, ravioli or tortelloni as they insisted looked like tinned ones and tasted even worse, spinach lasagne with no trace of spinach in it... The waitress couldn't wait to leave us to it before we... More

We were lucky enough to visit Sasso when it first opened in Harrogate some 20 years ago; it was a special place and comfortably the best and most authentic Italian food in town, sadly that 'crown' has slipped a bit over the years and there was an air of complacency and lack of attention detail that we would have considered...

Dinner with friends. A very warm welcome and attentive service, together with fabulous food, make this a really great place to eat. Whether you take advantage of the early doors menu or eat from the main menu, the standard of food is excellent. Varied menu which changes regularly.

Lovely evening - first of all great service, really friendly even to where the owner let me borrow his reading glasses! Second - excellent pasta and fillet steak and I think we licked the dessert plate! Delicious wine which was good value. All in all fab and we will be back!

Good place to have excellent Italian food. A bit small so you would definitely need to book in advance. We were a "walk in" but they managed to accommodate us.

Wonderful service and outstanding starter and main courses, reasonably priced wine list and lovely atmosphere. Would have given five stars but the tiramisu bore absolutely no relation to the real thing. At best it was angel delight on a thin layer of sponge, not a raw egg yolk or hint of mascarpone in sight, never mind a savoiardi biscuit. Fell... More
