After trying other fine establishments (including Watergate) we found ourselves pondering the menu outside at Sassi, as the sun set tropical over the river before us. Funnily enough we did the same thing the next four days running, stopping only because we leave for Melbourne today.
If you like authentic high-class Italian and staff who are excited and proud of the food they serve, you can't go past it.

Over four days we worked our way through all but one of the seafood pastas, most of the starters, and all of the deserts; the highlights among many being the home made squid-ink 'Nero" fettuccini with prawns, the best chargrilled octopus I have ever had, the seafood linguini exotically crowned with a Mortan Bay bug, and to finish with, the basil gelato with figs and prunes (think Tuscany!), and for traditionalists awesome affo-gato.

We washed it all down with a nice Italian Pinot Grigio ($45) when we had had enough Cosmo.
FANTASTIC.

This is one of my new favourites in Port Douglas. The service is good, but the food is sensational. My spaghetti vongole was as good as I've eaten in Italy and the chocolate tortino (like a fondant) was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. We were a party of 8 and all of the entrees, main courses and desserts were delicious - everyone was very happy with their choices. A very special place for those who love their food.

The food was delicious and the chocolate pudding was a must! I had food envy when my partner ordered the seafood linguine - yum! We sat outside which was nice, inside looked like it lacked a little bit of soul. Great waitress, very accommodating and fun!

We were undecided about where to go for our anniversary dinner, three fine dining restaurants caught our eye on Macrossan Street. We were not disappointed with this choice! The food was amazing, all cooked to perfection, staff were very attentive.The location is great opposite the water, we enjoyed the cooling breeze on such a balmy night. Highly recommended.
