First night back in Port Douglas this year. We decided not to cook and went to Sassi's. A great choice - carpaccio of beef, baked Hervey Bay Scallops, mussels in white wine and tomato broth, zuppa di pesce, and mango creme brulee. All washed down...More

We were on vacation in Port Douglas and had eaten in so many restaurants all of which were wonderful. We saved Sassi for our last night and what a disappointing farewell. It was all about the poor service. We were seated promptly. We ordered a...More

I sincerely apologise for your poor experience at our restaurant and disappointing farewell. It is not our normal service standard and the matter has been the focus of attention with our waitstaff today. I would be more than happy to offer you a complimentary meal...More

Hi we reserved online after looking around Port Douglas for something different. Overall the quality of the food was good. The dishes did not live up to the charming Italian sales pitch in terms of quantity or value for money. Listen carefully to the specials...More

We're so pleased you acknowledge the 'quality' of the food. However it never ceases to amaze us - even 'tho it shouldn't - that people use Trip Advisor as a form of revenge when they don't get a discount they feel they 'deserve'. Your conversation...More

Food was good, unfortunately the staff were not. I had the linguine and the pasta was not homemade, as you would expect from a Italian restaurant. Disappointing. A nearby table had the squid ink pasta, it was obvious that it was homemade. It took a...More

Ordered beef carpaccio, beef was great quality, Parmesan cheese was stacked on the top about 1cm thick, even after a scraped most of it off it’s all I could taste. It was dry and lacked dressing and seasoning, even the few capers that were the...More

What a charming local you are. It would seem your idea of supporting local businesses is to condemn them to the world (3 one star ratings of local restaurants out of 4 posts????) rather than address any dissatisfaction at the time. We're always happy to...More

Lovely outdoor seating. Good quality food (lovely seafood) but small serves. Their kids meals are the size for a toddler, not a primary aged child. To get an adequate size of a basic Napoli pasta for our 10 year old was $29. Must be a...More

Everything the lithe reviewers have said about this restaurant is true. The food is great. I had squid ink home made pasta which was really velvety if not a little short on prawns and my husband had the wild barramundi. Service was good and the...More

Yes shorts are fine. Our dress code is smart casual and we are in the tropics. As it's winter for us and we think it's a bit cool in the evening, - 22c - many wear long pants.
