It breaks my heart that Sassi is closing just as we discovered it. And I understand they are going to tear down the beautiful building to construct an assisted living facility. That whole area is being ruined. Nonetheless, absolutely delicious meal at Sassi to celebrate...More

What a great pity this delightful upscale restaurant and venue is closing next year. Styled similar to a Tuscan villa with cosy dining spaces and fabulous outdoor terrace/gardens. Food is Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on local produce and italian flavours.

This place is nothing short of phenomenal and not what I expected in Scottsdale. The pastor was made fresh daily and the sauce was as often as you can find it. This is a must on your foodie list.

I'm very impressed by the Sassi venue. They have an interesting menu. But, I was most impressed by the setting.. It reminds me of a small Italian village in the mountains. I understand the venue is a very popular place for weddings and wedding parties.

We dined with friends who had not eaten here for some time. From start to finish, the evening was wonderful. Our server, Tom, was excellent. He guided us through impeccable choices in wine, appetizers, and main courses. It was all delicious.

No - the city of Scottsdale does not allow restaurants to provide a corking fee so you have to buy off the wine list
