Took family of four for early dinner. Try the mixed nuts and the Bermuda Triangle Cheese Selection from the appetizers to start at the bar. Then move to your table and be sure to try the Caprese Salad and/or prosciutto. Then any 2 pasta dishes. My family opted for the two vegetarian options -- gnocchi was the winner. We skipped... More

Such a lovely night. We took all the recommendations of our waiter...he was spot on. Octopus, caprese salad, red snapper,sea bass. The wine recommendation was lovely. Even the breads and desserts. And yes... I said octopus. Just try it. Amazing.

Book sunset on the patio for a drink, then have dinner which is wonderful. Have been on three separate occasions and enjoyed each visit. The wait staff is attentive and helpful. Choose meals wisely, a shared appetizer, one dish and perhaps desert is sufficient for two people. Hearty eaters may wish more, then suggest two appetizers. The wine selection is... More

Sassi is a very romantic Italian restaurant with exceptional food and service. Our waiter, Simon, recommended a great white wine and our entrees and desserts were superb!

We had our company Christmas party here. The view of the city from the lawn is beautiful which is where we had are social before dinner. I had salmon and prime rib, both were excellent.

Weather permitting sit outside when available. If the weather is overbearing the bar is a great place to have a cocktail and if inclined a great place to eat as well. Very nice high quality restaurant, with the service to match. Have entertained out of town guests there many times and have always received great reviews from my guests.

Enjoyed a nice business dinner in one of the private dining rooms at Sassi. The waitstaff were excellent - attentive but not bothersome. The cheese appetizer is amazing - another nice option is their amazing caprese salad. For entrees, the wild mushroom ravioli was excellent! Others at the table enjoyed the branzino.

This was my second trip to Sassi, and I took my own advice and booked our reservation for sunset on the patio. That part was just amazing. However, the whole point of the evening was the amazing food, and while our entrees were quite tasty (orecchiette, gnocchi, and fettuccini) the apps and side we ordered ALL LACKED SALT. And the...

12 years ago we visited Sassi while visiting from Boston and looked forward to returning because we had such a great dining experience. Finally we made it back and it exceeded our expectations. The food is exquisite, the atmosphere is jaw-dropping, and the service is friendly and professional. We can't wait to return. The bartender on Sunday night is a... More

We ate outside on the pation (they have heaters out there). The food is excellent, but pricey. The service is efficient and elegant and the desert views are wonderful.

Description
Sassi is Scottsdale's nationally known destination for fine Italian dining, wine and special events. Located at the base of Pinnacle Peak. Sassi offers rustic, artisan style cuisine inspired by small towns in southern Italy. Sassi's villa style architecture, comfortable surroundings and rustic elegance are the perfect setting for a romantic dinner for two or a company event or wedding for up to 150 guests. Dine in one of four main dining rooms or on the patio (weather permitting), or reserve the private wine cellar for up to 14. Sassi features more than reasonably priced 150 wines from Italy and California to complement Chef Peter's flavorful cuisine.
