we reserved for 6 people on
we reserved for 6 people on Mother's Day at 645p only to learn our concert began 730p. We phoned and the manager instantly changed our reservations to 530p ON A HOLIDAY....to accomodate our needs. Food and service were beyond compare and the ladies each received a beautiful complimentary white rose!! Cannot say enough positive about this restaurant - will return as often as possible,

Been here a few times before and when it's busy service can be sub-par. Late night with my girlfriend (aka. Wife) was a great escape that we both enjoyed. Everything was very good and we'll definitely be back.

Excellent Food, but...
This was our first time at Grissini. The kitchen is out in the open in a passageway between two large dining rooms, and we were seated right in front of it. The ambiance therefore was not terrific. Our waiter made some excellent menu suggestions, but he spent too much time describing the food and being (rather excessively) solicitous to us. We were there to visit with each other, not him.
Having said all that, the food was marvelous. We all loved our dishes and although expensive, it was worth it.

Best Italian in Bergen County
First came the impressive bread basket. i love it when a restaurant starts off on the right foot by serving fresh italian bread and breadsticks. Shared a rigatoni bolognese appetizer size and it was delicious. The pasta was cooked to perfection and gravy had a nice flavor. Then our salad came which was also very good. My salmon entrees served with squash was superb. My friend had the lamb chops. It was a generous sized portion and he said were also savory. For dessert we had ricotta cheesecake. Homemade so I need say no more! Wine list extensive and we enjoyed a bottle of Tignanello.

First rate at Grissini
We have lived in Bergen County for 38 years and just visited Grissini's last week. The GM is a long time friend from a NY restaurant, and treated us like family. The food is truly exceptional and the service is better than most NY restaurants. Although the noise level is a little loud in the bar area, you can comfortably chat and enjoy the experience. The menu is incredibly extensive and the waiters can speak intelligently about the items. This is rare in today's world. The portions are larger than I expected and both meals were cooked and presented perfectly. Grissini has redefined how good Italian food is prepared and presented.

As good as Italy
My husband and I travel quite a bit and are very particular. On this visit, our meal was outstanding and as good as the best restaurants in Italy. We are going back this week.

I have been visiting Grassini for the past 5 years, and I have never been disappointed. The food is always prepared properly and there's never any disappointing surprises. Great intimate spot for the occasional business lunch. On my most recent visit ordered the tuna steak. It was prepared to perfection.
If you haven't been, put Grassini on your list of places you have to try. Great food, reasonable prices. Now all you need is the right company to join you.

Just a short note to compliment
Just a short note to compliment Grissini's Restaurant for the excellent food and wonderful service. I have written about this restaurant before and my opinion has not changed. The food is excellently prepared, the wait staff professional and courteous and the Maitr'D, Enzo friendly and efficient. No haughtiness here! A great evening for Italian dining.
