Authentic Italian pasta and wine specialist
This Italian restaurant dishes up immaculately sourced and handmade antipasti, primi and secondi. Sasso is a small town near Bologna. It’s the home town of chef patron, Stefano Lancellotti, and he recreates many regional specialities at Sasso. The tortellini and tagliatelle made with fresh Italian eggs, for example, abound on the menu alongside his homeland’s finest ham, mortadella sausage and balsamic vinegar. A typical meal could include homemade duck liver pate with an orange creme caramel topping, brioche with freshly sliced deli meats and a risotto of wild mushrooms. Mains such as smoked duck with truffle, ravioli with fresh lobster and tarragon and spicy cheese and curry macaroni showcase imagination as well as skill. The likes of slow-roasted lamb shank in a Tuscan tomato and porcini mushroom sauce, served on artichoke mash or calves liver, Calvados and a cream of sage sauce are meals that proposals are made of. Dolci has to be house ice cream or tiramisu with Sambuca sauce. The chef’s wife and father in law also work in the family restaurant. There’s a bespoke Italian wine selection with a focus on the pricey Piedmont region. Décor is pleasantly understated; magnolia walls, broken up by moody black and white prints offer a blank canvas for Sasso’s red-blooded flavours.
