Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As a food critic I must admit I was impressed with the set menu for the dinner dance we attended last Saturday and in fact to much food. The service was brilliant, extremely well-trained staff and the owner was delightful. Looking forward to our next...visit to this restaurant. @lovefoodaustraliaMore

Unpretentious diner that serves tasty Italian fare and the best sticky date pudding you will have in Australia - I've eaten this desert across all states and this is hands down the best: pudding is soft without excessive ginger tones, ice cream matched and sauce...plentiful. Staff are friendly without being over indulgent or fawning, and the major is a hard working guy who aims to please. You cannot be disappointed!More

Our visit to Sassy could only have been made better by more people having been there in a cold and wet winter night, so the atmosphere was a little more bustling for our early dinner. The food was delightful, and truly authentic to its Italian...roots. We visit Italy often, and the flavours were on point. The gnocchi was beautiful light and perfectly cooked, and the accompanying osso bucco ragu had a great depth of flavour and was delicious. The risotto was perfectly cooked too, and full of flavour. This place is a little hidden gem, which given it was a $10 Uber from the opposite side of the CBD should make it a must visit for those visiting Melbourne, who want a well priced meal, with nice views of the docklands. The service was great, though it wasn’t the busiest when we were there, even the owner came and spoke with us, and was really friendly. This place will definitely be on our list to revisit next time we’re in the city.More

I had visited Sassy around 2years ago not long after it opened. Despite the trials of Victorian COVID restrictions it has survived and thrived! Above North Melbourne railway station it is worth avoiding parking and limiting 🍷to make a gourmet stop! A wonderful wine list...with Italian meal classics as mainstays complemented by daily specials. I loved my lamb shank, but it wasn’t an easy choice with so many options! A warm, friendly and attentive team led by Alex. Bellissimo!More

Attended Sassy for Dinner, and the staff were friendly BUT the prices were extremely high for the amount of food. I had salt & pepper calamari, found approx 5 pieces of calamari amongst alllll the salad, and a glass of wine $13.90, what an overcharge...!!!!! Will not be back...Can go elsewhere for proper glass of wine, and more calamari... Very dissatisfiedMore

My wife has celiac disease and gets very sick when she is cross contaminated. She had a G-free pizza that had the best crust we have ever had. The owner came out and made sure she was ok. I had the lasagna (not g-free) that...was very good as well. Highly recommend!More

The best Italian food experience, we ate there, three times in one week. The lasagna, pizzas, and seafood paella are delicious. Good selection of wines, too. The staff are attentive and friendly. Thank you to Ele, the owner, who went out of his way to...make the experience very special.More

Sassy is a great secret that’s waiting to be discovered! Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner perfectly cooked - grilled snapper served with gnocchi. Dinner was finished off by sharing two delicious desserts- Tiramisu, and an orange pudding Service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend!

The food was good. I had a pizza Sorrentina and a Cos side salad. But there were some unusual spices or too much pepper on the pizza, which tasted not typical italian in my opinion. Nevertheless I especially liked the salad which contained radish, fennel,...apple and raisins. When the bill came, they charged me the regular price, but not their sassy Tuesday pizza offer (pizza and drink for sassy $20). Once I spoke to the waiter, they fixed it to the promo rate.More

Impeccable service from engaged and friendly staff. Amazing ambience with a backdrop of the city all lit up. It created a New York vibe that our guests loved. Wonderful food especially the Arancini balls. We can't recommend Sassy more highly. A big thanks to our...wonderful host Ele.More
