Signor Sassi Italian Restaurant - Kuwait

Finally a Great High-End Italian Restaurant in Kuwait


Restaurant Category : Italian

Signor Sassi Italian Restaurant - Kuwait: Opened October 2009, Signor Sassi is a brilliant addition to Kuwait’s dining scene as it satisfies something that the city has sorely needed since the local economy surged and commercial establishments sprouted like mushrooms—an upscale authentic Italian restaurant. Located in the Gulf Road in the same place as the Fish Market and right next to the Kuwait Towers, Signor Sassi is a branch of the popular Italian restaurant in Knightsbridge, London. The Kuwait version hovers above the water and offers an airy and luxurious ambiance perfect for seekers of sophisticated romance in the Arabian Gulf.

We went there for lunch and were lucky to have gotten there early because shortly after we arrived, the place was packed. In the future, (since I’m definitely planning on coming back) I’ll be sure to make reservations! The first thing I noticed about the place was the warm and welcoming colors (reds, orange and yellows) contrasted with the crisp white linens and cool and airy ambiance. The elegant lighting and impeccable table setting put us in the mood to sit-back, relax and enjoy a lovely lunch.

We started our lunch with appetizers, worth mentioning here in full detail: Caprino con Asparagi—warm goat cheese coated in sesame seeds served with grilled asparagus, oil and lemon dressing on a mixed leaves salad (KD 2.950), and Gamberoni alla Diavola—tiger prawns sauteed with a touch of tomato sauce, garlic and fresh chili (KD 2.950).

The goat cheese salad was a symphony of flavors and textures—fresh, delicate, and easily the best in Kuwait. The over-sized tiger prawns were fresh as fresh can be with a tangy, zesty, spicy sauce. I don’t recall having prawns this good before in Kuwait.

Our main courses were Gnocchi alla Sorrentina—stone baked potato dumplings in tomato garlic and basil, topped with mozzarella and parmesan (KD 3.400), and Linguine ai Frutti di Mare (Fruit of the Sea)—a selection of prawns, mussels, clams and squid served with linguini pasta in a tomato and garlic sauce (KD 4.500). The Gnocchi was decent; then again, I have never been a big fan of Gnocchi. I still wonder why I ordered it in the first place, but the tasty sauce was good enough that I finished the whole order! My dining partner’s linguine on the other hand was mouth-wateringly delicious. The seafood was piled up high on the plate (unlike a lot of restaurants that scrimp on seafood) and was super fresh. The tomato and garlic sauce was absolutely perfect.

For dessert, each of us ordered uniquely and decided to share: Tiramisu for my friend, Fresh Strawberries with Vanilla Ice Cream for my other dining partner, and a Warm Apple Tart with Ice Cream for me. I should have gone with my first instinct and ordered the Tiramisu; it was the best—rich and moist, a true Italian treat. My Apple Tart was a bit bland and uninspiring. Luckily, the ice cream added a bit of excitement to it. My other friend’s Strawberries and Ice Cream were not only great tasting, the presentation in a clear tall glass with a cool-looking spoon already made it worth ordering.

Service was also superb and the presentation of all the dishes was nice and classy. You definitely get your money’s worth! Even better, a second Signor Sassi is due to open in Kuwait in Mall 360 soon and I’m sure it will just be as Bombastic!
