True Italian restaurant and wine retailer. Every dish will hardly disappoint every italian food lover. The staff will give you a very comfortable treatment. Perfect choice for good tasters!

I have been to this restaurant a few times, albeit before the pandemic. I have always found the food not fantastic but above average. This is the first time i am here since the pandemic and I must say the food has been disappointing. The...Bottarga (Dry Fish Eggs, Speciality from Sardinia) Spaghetti With Olive Oil, Garlic & Chili, was not as good as promised. The rest of the mains were just average. The pizza were however very good Service attentive and excellent. Not very good value for money.More

In total my wife and I have tried 4 different Italian restaurants during our stay in Kuala Lumpur and Sassorosso is absolutely the best of them by far. Unlike many other places in KL, Sassorosso is located in their own one floor building, not in...a shopping mall or on the umpteenth floor of some tower. Which brings completely different, cozier atmosphere. And which allows them to have located outside a proper wood operated oven to make pizzas. On top of it very well-chosen wine-list many restaurants in Italy would envy and attentive service.More

Overall Above average quality of food, but price is very expensive, similar price range or even more expensive than Brasserie in St Regis. I did view the menu online but no price stated. Considering the location is in a housing area, I did not expect...the price to be so expensive. Good thing is it is not compulsory to order drink (32 for fresh fruit juice), and they serve complimentary plain water. Atmosphere Alright but not the kind of hotel high class restaurant kind of setting Food Pan seared foie gras - 5 star very good but portion is very small (looks big in picture but is really small) and the price is expensive 128 or 138 - can't remember as didnt keep the receipt Mushroom risotto - 4 star, not much cheese taste but they provide cheese powder. again portion is very small, from picture, it is 1 thin layer on a big plate - price about 70+, the price would be 30+ in the normal italian restaurant I frequent Four cheese pizza - 3 star - it is not the crispy kind of pizza - price about 70+, portion is small, the price would be 30+ in the normal italian restaurant I frequent Lamb - 3 star average nothing to shout about Will I visit again? Probably no unless there is discount as for this price range I would rather visit some high end restaurant in 5 star hotelMore

Me and the wife had our wedding reception here a few years ago. I remember the owner, Mr Giovanni being exceptionally helpful as well as all the staff. Our wedding day went off well and to this day we still talk about the dishes that...were served, esp the beef dish! Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Since then, we've made it a habit to come back at least sometime around our wedding anniversary for a nice lunch. The food, as always, is still awesome. If I were to nitpick (and this is a minor minor quibble) the mushroom soup (which we always order as a starter) seems to have been slightly inconsistent the last couple of times. Even after having said that, it's still the best mushroom soup in town!More

I have been there yesterday night, with my wife and a couple of friends. The restaurant was completely empty, which should have called for some attention. We all ordered from the regular menu, and I got myself a crab pasta as I wanted a light...meal... as soon as we reached home, I started to feel that something was not ok. The night has been really hard... I experienced the worst food poisoning of my life. I will avoid the details but I spent it all in the loo... and today is not better!

While I was in Kuala Lumpur, I decided to visit a restaurant that a friend recommended me. Once on the doorstep, a kind and professional italian head waitress took care of me for the rest of the time spent there. I was missing italian cuisine,...for sure. I also was expecting great, professional service and excellent food and products quality. Sassorosso satisfied me with everything. Wines and grappas choices are incredibly amazing and 'di classe'. Well done Dino! I will explore again the menu of this quality restaurant, for sure.More

Was taken here for a special occasion, and this place was truly special. Its located in a former bungalow off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng. The interior of the restaurant is calm and pleasing, and although you could chose to sit outside, probably best to be...inside. The food was authentic Italian, and we have been to Italy. Loved the food, and this is probably now our go-to restaurant for Italian. Service was also attentive and very good. Full marks for all the wait staff and certainly the birthday treat and singing of "happy birthday" was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Full marks for Sassorosso and highly recommend it.More

Quick summary: An 100% authentic Italian restaurant. Salad is fresh and comes with a diverse bread basket (white Italian bread, onion bread, Grissini and more). Pizza dough is Neapolitan style, amount of toppings is balanced, overall size is pretty big for a Neapolitan style pizza....The pizza is prepared in a brick oven and tastes excellent. Service team is very attentive, knowledgeable, and pays attention to special requests. My #1 Italian place in KL.More
