Probably would have never noticed this place if not for this app. Great service great food. It's a little off the beaten path. Doesn't feel like the fastest part of town. However, won't hesitate to go back.

I can't think of anything we (four of us) didn't like about the food. I understand why restaraunts charge a "sharing fee" but $5 extra for a couple to split an entree sized Ceasar Salad seemed a little much. If that's your only issue though,...More

Celebrating with friends we found a unique restaurant in Fort Myers. There were 8 of us and not a single morsel of food was left behind. The chicken Parmesan was out of this world. Everything was great, salads, entrees, dessert, wine, all great.

A friend and I found Sasse's on Yelp. The first impression upon walking in is this place is lovely and has some tablecloths making it feel 'finer'. The chef worked behind the half wall of the bistro style and cheerfully greeted us. The menu was...More

The owners have taken a strip mall type of property and turned it into an upscale, popular restaurant. This has been done with fabulous food and a very comfortable indoor atmosphere. I had salmon that was expertly prepared over a bed of risotto. We had...More

We found Sasse's via Siri and couldn't agree more with the recommendation. Reservations are required for dinner, but a cancellation got us a table. The owner/chef provides a limited menu of excellent dishes. There is a variety of choices to meet most people's tastes. Two...More
