We love hearing about the wonderful experiences of our customers on TripAdvisor, and we work hard to ensure that every visitor to Sasso has only good memories to take home. So we were delighted to learn this month that our little restaurant has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence, another accolade to add to our achievements.

As we raise a glass to the award, we thought this seemed like a perfect opportunity to fill you in on how Sasso has become one of the best dining spots in Yorkshire, and why a TripAdvisor stamp is something worth celebrating.

 

Sasso’s journey so far

 A Harrogate hotspot for delicious homemade Italian dishes cooked with fresh ingredients, Sasso has come a long way since opening its doors back in 1998. Our owner, Stefano Lancellotti, took inspiration from the Emilia Romagna region when deciding on a theme for the restaurant, naming it after his home town of the same title.

Working alongside wife Sara, our owner and head chef soon gained a sterling reputation for Sasso in Harrogate – and beyond! The popularity of the restaurant has been built on its splendid tasting menu, elegant interior, and spectacular entertainment value (with live swing music hosted on evenings throughout the year).

The kitchen team are always dreaming up a fabulous selection of specials, including Stefano’s famous signature dish: tagliolini with sweet chorizo, prawns, roasted peppers and saffron.

From lamb and thyme ravioli, to mixed seafood risotto, to English duck breast, diners are frequently spoiled for choice after lifting the Sasso menu, and an expansive wine list is filled with options designed to complement each dish. Crab cakes, poached eggs, and fresh buffalo mozzarella are popular starters, with Italian ice cream, fresh fruit, and Tiramisu all available for dessert.

 

An achievement to be proud of

Sasso is one of the most decorated restaurants in the Yorkshire area, winning the Yorkshire Life Magazine ‘City Restaurant Of The Year’ award, the Open Table Diners’ Choice Award in 2017, and remaining a regular feature in the Good Food Guide for the better part of a decade.

Millions of people all over the world rely on TripAdvisor reviews to pick a dining place –the Certificate of Excellence is only ever awarded to restaurants that accumulate consistent five-star user reviews throughout the year. This is public perception we’re talking about – and there are few greater influencers for the success and reputation of a small, independent business like ours.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our TripAdvisor profile over the past few years. We’re thrilled to have been awarded the Certificate of Excellence, and will continue working hard to ensure every customer leaves Sasso with a great experience to write home about.
