Thank You!

SASSI was a dream that came to be. In our 14 plus years, there were many wonderful and memorable dinners, weddings, and events. Sadly, however, SASSI could not survive the seasonality the summer months brought or the ever-changing dining trends.

Many of you felt as we have that SASSI’s food and venue were some of the best in the valley. We couldn’t agree more. Unfortunately, our location proved to be too far for many to frequent often enough to make it work. Especially in the offseason.

But please accept a big “Thanks” to all of our patrons, suppliers and SASSI team members for their support over these past years. Without you, it would never have happened at all.

No regrets though. Right or Wrong. We did it our way.

Quando una porta si chiude un altro apre.

Alla prossima!

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.
