One of North Yorkshire’s leading independent restaurants has been included in the UK’s top food guide for the 10th year running.
Family-owned and run Sasso in Princes Square, Harrogate, is celebrating a decade of featuring in the pages of The Good Food Guide, the definitive handbook to the very best restaurants and eateries across Britain.
For Sasso chef/owner Stefano Lancellotti, inclusion in the 2017 guide comes at a time when independent restaurants in Harrogate are facing a barrage of competition from multi-national chains.
“We are absolutely delighted to be included in The Good Food Guide for the 10th year in succession. It is a real honour for us,” said Stefano, who co-owns Sasso with his wife Sara and father-in-law Brian Ferguson.
“We are passionate about the food we produce here at Sasso – we use only the best ingredients from both my home inItaly and here in Yorkshire, and work hard to ensure that everything that comes out of our kitchen is of the highest quality possible,” he said.
“At a time when we are facing more and more competition from new restaurant chains, which appear almost weekly in Harrogate, we are delighted that the excellence of our food is recognised. Thank you Good Food Guide!” he said.
Elizabeth Carter, who is celebrating 10 years at the helm of The Good Food Guide, praises Sasso’s home-made pasta – and gives special mention to the restaurant’s Parma ham and mortadella tortellini enriched with Parmesan and truffle fondue sauce, along with Sasso’ duck liver pate with orange creme caramel topping.
Sasso opened in Harrogate 18 years ago and was joined a number of years later by sister coffee shop/pizzeria Caffe Marconi, also in Princes Square.
The long-established restaurant hosts regular Regional Evenings, as well as Swing Nights with singer Richard Daniels – check out the website for full details www.sassorestaurant.co.uk
