This restaurant had great food, but the service was slow and the waiter hardly said a word making us all feel unwelcome. Hiring happy and jolly full staff combined with good food will make a huge difference
All meals were delicious, but a little on the $$$ side. Cocktails were nice too. Great wine knowledge from our waiter. I had crab. It was lovely. The scollops, arancini, fish of the day and steak were also very well received. Steak (medium) was so soft and delicious.
The service was very slow and the waitress serving us couldn’t even squeeze out a smile and very slow. We ask the man / host for some cutlery, he said: I will get your waitress. You are in the service industry. Why don’t you just bring the cutlery over? Then we asked for some lemons to go with the sparking water. That took asking 2 waitresses and 18 minutes. Then ordered the most expensive item on the menu: the seafood tray. We understand that it’s cook to order so it will take time, but it took more than 50 minutes. When it arrived, the oysters looked shrivelled up and “warm”. It is suppose to be a combination of cold and hot seafood items. Turns out that others were the only cold (but turned out warm) seafood.
Great food, good friendly service. Predominantly sea food, cooked to perfection. Location at end of shopping strip means ample parking and easily accessible.
Poor welcome and service, obviously were short staffed. Food was good though food drenched in oil. Least favourite dining experience in Port Douglas.
Sassi has the best (warm) seafood platter in Port, and probably the best one I have ever had. And we keep coming back here and the quality never varies. Service is intelligently attentive.
Sassi Cucina is our favourite restaurant in Port Douglas. We have been going there for many years. The food is always fresh and interesting. The atmosphere is fabulous. The staff are always helpful and friendly. Yes last nights meal did not disappoint and we will be back. Love this place.
Astounded by our meal last night. We booked a late time (8:30pm) considering it shuts at 9pm. We did not feel rushed in the slightest. The staff were so friendly and extremely acknowledgeable on the food and the wine. The quality of the food was amazing and has to be one of the best meals I’ve had in a long long time. I would 100% recommended going there to anyone. There’s something for everyone. Thank you so much for making our first night in port Douglas one to remember :)
A fabulous return visit.
Nice dinner experience.
Always fantastic food and service
very underwhelming. Our most disappointing dinner in the 7 nights we were in Port Douglas.
Have been twice before but it’s been three years. It’s still good and I will be back.
Don’t waste your money there go somewhere else !!!
Food very salty.
Beautiful food great service and the scallops were the best we have ever tasted : thank you
Food was average service was not good felt like they where rushing us. Really disappointed for the price that we paid. Salsa is really the best place to eat in PD
The mussels were to die for and the pasta Bellissimo
Great Food, Great Service, Great Night !
Quality of the food will bring us back
Day time atmosphere better than evening. Some delicious food, some average. Overall, a solid performer but not exceptional.
Great food, great staff and service!
Very attentive staff, delicious food and wine. Try the lava cake to finish!
Too expensive for the quality. Too many other restaurants in Port Douglas with just as good a quality food and less expensive. Will give it a miss on future visits
We will be back!
We had lunch with friends. Food was overpriced for very small portions.
Would always come back
Very nice meal, casual but attentive service. A good night out!
Food very tasty. Service friendly
Food was beautiful. Staff are were friendly, gave the place a nice atmosphere.
Very friendly staff
Absolutely loved our dinner here. They were very accomodating with our children and the food was absolutely divine. They even recommended an Italian wine that was the cheapest on their list!
Beautiful meal in delightful surroundings.
We both enjoyed the entree but mains were hit and miss and the service was completely non-existent
Great risotto Nice waiters
Guests enjoyed the veal cutlet with a South Australian Shiraz, extremely well priced. We dined twice at this restaurant in one week, that is how good it was! Until next time!
Guests enjoyed the scallop special and Barramundi Fillet with Chardonnay from the Margaret river very well priced. Service was authentically Italian minus the attitude. We will return!
The CARPACCIO DI SALMONE, CAPESANTE, TORTINO DI CIOCCOLATO AL CUORE BIANCO and GELATO AL BASILICO are all my usual favourites on the deliciously crafted menu. Thanks Tony, Di, Vincenzo and entire Sassi crew for creating and maintaining a small slice of Italy in Port Douglas. Che meraviglia!
Sassi was good but a few things could have been better when it came to the food. We loved the barramundi but the side vegetable presentation and contents was just wrong, no love in the veggies at all, just thrown onto the plate. We have eaten here before but this time it just felt a bit flat. Saying this most of the food we had was very good. Service was adequate but sometimes too quick to leave the table before we could get their attention, must be an Italian thing!
