At Sassi it’s all about the taste.

Italian to the bone, Tony was born in Abruzzo on the Adriatic coast of Italy. He grew up with the wonderful flavours of the Italian seaside which he now translates into a modern cucina without losing the heart of Italian flavour. He is renowned for creating ‘taste memories’ and for the lingering, exquisitely balanced flavours in all his dishes. Asked to describe his food, Food critics have noted that Tony achieves great results by not overworking the fresh ingredient – it’s simple and it’s ‘sassi’.

And, after all, If you want the best in Italian flavour, why wouldn’t you eat where the chef is Italian!
