‘It’s all about smart, traditional Italian dishes adapted to suit the climate and served with simplicity and great flair’
(Gourmet Traveller 2005 Restaurant Guide)

‘Tony Sassi’s simple yet sophisticated fare will be the highlight of any foodie’s stay in Far North Queensland’
(Queensland Food and Wine Guide 2009)

‘If ever there was a reason to obsess over wonderfully inspired food it is here where Tony and Di Sassi run a restaurant that sparkles with Italian style’
(Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide 2004)

‘Tony Sassi achieves great things with fish and seafood by not overworking them’
(Necia Wilden, The Age Epicure)

‘It’s cuisine 2000 years in the making, but as modern as the wireless broadband connection in the room. It’s not museum food from Sassi’s Italian heritage (he hails from Abruzzo on the mid Adriatic east coat of the country), rather a sensitive, intelligent reflection of this location, the produce underpinned by rock solid technique. His crisped salt and pepper gamberetti, small prawns, come with native finger lime. The mushroom risotto is scented cleverly with locally smoked mozzarella (and wild saffron milk cap mushrooms in the season). Local seafood appears in a seafood stew of amazing depth and clarity of flavour, an homage to the town of Pescara and the region of Sassi’s birth.’
