    Maurizio is the hardest working restauranteur in the city. His food is outstanding. We arrived at 5:30 pm to our 5:15 pm reservation.....not a problem and your son called as he will be later with the wife and baby. This is like going to an uncles for dinner. The food and service are impeccable. Highest recommendation and marks.Great Italian food prepared with traditional overtones but with special modern flair. Everyone is treated as special in this beautiful G.Village gem.

    Our waiter came across as disinterested and disengaged. I think he was watching World Cup in the back. My cocktail order was messed up, and, toward the latter part of the meal, he rarely stopped by the table. My friend and I ate pasta, but we were not offered parmesan or ground pepper, though I noticed that it was offered to other tables. One of the waiter's colleagues, who was very nice, eventually picked up the slack. The poor service was really a shame because the food was quite good.

    We had the salad contadina, the black linguine with seafood and the mushroom and wild boar pasta for dinner. All three were delicious with the wild boar pasta the standout. We also tried the tiramisu and the pannacotta for dessert, again north were fantastic. I will definitely go to this restaurant again.

    On entering this attractive corner restaurant in the Village, the first thing you notice is the wonderful aroma from the food cooking in the wood oven. (Our terrific waiter said that of all the restaurants he's worked in, this one smells the best by far!) The place was only half full when we arrived at 8:15 on a Friday, but was packed by the time we left. The noise level increased, obviously, but never to the level of "din." The varied menu gives you lots of options, from quick small meals like pizzas to the usual 3-course spread. The food was ample and oh so delicious. This chef is clearly creative and gifted.

    We went here after a matinee in the Village and it was about 4:30. They were very gracious even though we were very early for a 5 PM reservation. They had just finished Sunday brunch and the staff was eating, but they were warm and welcoming. We had a coupon for Prosecco and ordered a pizza to eat while they set up for dinner. Then had four pastas that we shared. All were delicious. The bar is small, but got busy and people at at it and the small counter nearby. There is a front area and a back area near the kitchen. The chef is the owner and seems to be there all of the time. Definitely recommend.

    The only regret I had was, that they ran out of the Lasagna early in the evening, and we just got the last one of the salmon specials. But it shows that everything is fresh. The food was delicious, the service very accommodating, and they didn't rush us out once we were done dining. I also highly recommend their sister restaurant "Taverna di Bacco" on the LES.

    This place more than holds its own in the West Village where Italian food abounds. The pizza was excellent. There was some confusion re a dish that was supposed to come with eel and didn't but the very charming chef came over to straighten it out. The noise level was high on a week-night so I'd definitely avoid it on weekends.

    Enjoy really good food in a lovely Greenwich Village atmosphere. I am so tired of restaurants with blaring music - can't hear your dinner companion and spoils the meal. Grano creates a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy you meal as well as the company of those you share it with. Great service. A real gem.

    Ate at this restaurant several years ago right after we came back from Italy. Stumbled cross it on one of our neighborhood walks. Love it. Best pizza outside of Naples! This trip we had pasta and was thrilled to find out they had GLUTEN FREE pasta available. great sauces-MIne was a mushroom and DH was a boar sausage ragu. Wine from Italy topped it off. It is a keeper for us and will recommend it to friends...

    We've been coming here for 4 years and have always been very happy with the service, food and drinks. We didn't recognize any staff during this visit - perhaps they are all on vacation with temporary replacements? They didn't have our regular prosecco, it took them 15 mins to give us an ice bucket, the salad was horrible, the pizza took 25 minutes after I finished the starter...... A very disappointing experience.

    Went with three friends and enjoyed spinach salad, fish special, chicken stuffed with spinach and cheese, and excellent desserts. Everything was nicely prepared and tasty. Friendly waiters. Prices are moderate but your check can be high when you add wine and drinks. Maybe not a great date spot, but good for friends and groups. Recommended.
