Describing the food at SASSI is easy
Beyond sumptuous it is Italian (mostly southern) traditionally unique, hand made (pastas and breads), fresh, sourced near and far, comfortable yet uncomplicated. Combined together in an unbelievably charming, old world Italian villa setting with Sonoran desert and city light views enjoy the traditional cuisine in charming wood beamed, stone walled dining rooms and patios which create a one and only experience in North Scottsdale in a casual yet elegant surrounding. No wonder SASSI’s food, ambiance, attentive service and wine selection has garnered so many awards including Wine Spectator and AAA 4 Diamond Awards 5 years in a row since being established in 2004.
