    Sassella was a little off last night compared to other visits. The caprese ($38) was not very good... the tomatoes had no flavor and the peaches were very hard and again no flavor. The flavor really only came from the balsamic vinegar. The prices seem to continue to increase as well. We skipped dessert as everything seemed so expensive and nothing seemed appetizing.

    We have had two great dinners in the past three weeks there. The food was wonderful and the service impeccable. The staff is very kind and thoughtful. I had made reservations outside but they moved us inside because of the threat of rain without my asking.

    Enjoyed outdoor dining with Jessica as our hostess. Jessica was very helpful with answers to our questions and later ensuring that we were satisfied. Kobe beef and lobster tails dinner was super. R C and Tina Vasavada

    Superb, genuine Italian cuisine, prepared and served with flair and care. Some of the best ravioli I have eaten outside Italy.

    Love the ambiance and the service but the food and cocktails were mediocre and way too expensive My faux mojito was warm and no muddled mint Carbonara is supposed to be the perfect chemistry of the hot noodles cooking the egg as they hit the sauce , not a blob to mix in yourself later

    Another wonderful meal at Sassella. They never disappoint! A new twist on the lobster risotto was awesome with bite size bits of asparagus in the risotto. Really tasty. Pear salad was a bit different than in the past but still awesome. And the Branzino was over the top delicious.
