We enjoyed a well-cooked barramundi fish 'n chips dish (served with a glass of pinot grigio) and nice avocado and prawn bruschetta. Good was excellent, and the service impeccable.

Look no further for an air conditioned lunch restaurant in mid-summer!! This authentic Italian restaurant serves fabulous, fresh seafood, cooked in the simple but perfect style of a good Italian Cucina. We enjoyed gamberi fritti, baccala croquettes, fresh Hervey Bay scallops lightly grilled & melt-in-the-mouth mussels cooked in a white wine, garlic & chilli broth (chargrilled ciabatta provided to soak...

I love this Italian restaurant and keep returning. The seafood linguine is superb. The service is friendly and the waiters food knowledge fantastic. One of the waiters Nicolai always goes above and beyond. In an area full of wonderful eateries this is right up there as a favorite

We celebrated our 3 year anniversary here last night. The service from Nicolo was fantastic, and the food was to die for. Strongly recommend the seafood options! Best dining experience in Port Douglas we have had on our holiday.

Went here 3 times in the two weeks we were in Port Douglas. First visit did order entree but there was some mix up with our meal so they gave us a complimentary entree of tuna. Now I do not eat much seafood and my husband does not eat tuna. As the dish was complementary thought we would do the... More

We enjoyed an air conditioned Italian dining experience with Nickoli as our server. He delivered a rose and his special attention from the very beginning. Cocktails and Wine were the best experienced in Australia. Our seafood dinners were fresh and delishious. The service was exceptional. Do not forego the desert menu!

Whether it's just cocktails, pizza from the bar or a scrumptious Italian Dinner, Sassi Cucina is a must. Situated on the corner of Macrossan & Wharf streets in Port, the Alfresco dining area affords a fantastic view across Dixon Inlet to the Tablelands and mountains to the north. Tonight we both chose the Veal Cutlet and it was delicious!
