Good Food Guide recognises Harrogate’s Sasso Restaurant

Italian restaurant Sasso in Harrogate is in the news– after being included in the 2016 Good Food Guide for the ninth year running!

The award-winning, family-run Italian eaterie, which has been a firm favourite in the spa town since it opened almost two decades ago, first won its place in the definitive eating out guide in 2008.

Chef/owner Stefano Lancellotti, who runs Sasso, based in Princes Square, Harrogate, with his wife Sara and her father-in-law Brian Ferguson, is delighted to be included in the prestigious guide for the ninth year.

“The Good Food Guide is compiled each year from scratch, so being included in the 2016 guide is not a given,” said Stefano, who honed his skilled in the restaurant industry in Italy before moving to the UK and opening Sasso in 1998.

“We are delighted that the independent inspectors who work for The Good Food Guide have recognised the innovative, authentic Italian cuisine we create in the kitchen at Sasso.

“Inclusion in this highly-acclaimed guide is testament to the hard work and dedication of my fantastic team of staff at Sasso,” added Stefano.

The Guide, celebrating its 65th year and published by Waitrose, describes Sasso as “a cut above most Italians in the area” and praises Stefano and his team’s “excellent hand-made pasta dishes” as well as picking out the restaurant’s fish of the day or rib-eye steak for special mention.

Sasso is also praised for its lunch and pre-theatre menus for their ‘remarkable value”.

The restaurant hosts regular Regional evenings and monthly music nights featuring Richard Daniels Sings Swing.

As well as Sasso, Stefano, Sara and Brian own sister eaterie Caffe Marconi, also based in Princes Square, Harrogate, which is a café by day and a pizzeria by night.
