Just happened on Grifone's
Just happened on Grifone's because I needed to meet in the neighborhood. What a gem. Will definitely return -- the New York of long ago preserved here.

My husband & I went here for a pre-theatre dinner (for his birthday). Food was fresh & delicious. It is a small neighborhood place. I'm pretty sure we were the only ones there that the servers didn't recognize. Go here and skip the tourist traps!

We had not been to Grifone for years due to having lived away from the area. Memories said we should go back and we were right. The service is great and the staff superb. Definitely a fine dining experience. Actually, we had trouble choosing from the specials and the menu.

What A Find!
Let's begin with what Grifone is not......a "hot-spot". If you are looking for a "vibrant bar scene" this is not it.
Instead, Grifone is very likely the best old-school Italian dining experience anywhere in New York. From the moment you walk in the door, you realize the place is special. A warm and welcoming greeting (and kiss on the cheek for the ladies) from the maitre d' and owner, Mario, begins the evening. The service is attentive but not pushy. Menus? Who needs menus? Order one of the specials or simply tell the waiter what sounds good--they'll make it and it will be incredible. For me, that was a pasta trio to start followed by perhaps the finest osso bucco and gnochi I have ever had.
This is the way fine dining should be.

Grifone is an oasis of quiet and a comprehensive list of Italian specialties with wonderful old school charm and great service. It fills a great niche on the east end of the restaurant row on 46th.

still going strong
although the place feels very 1980's the food remains as fresh and delicious as ever - try the red peppers with mozzerlla!

Went on a Saturday night, early before theater. Very attentive service. Waiter overheard us talking about the different type of clams and was sure to bring the type we liked. Nice welcome with some bruschetta, cheese and salami for the table. Had the clam appetizer with light red sauce (great), endive and beet salad (fine, nothing special). main dishes were the lasagna (excellent and I'm picky about it. very fresh pasta) along with a veal dish.

Could not have been a better
Everything clicked. Food was excellent, good table, but even more important the service was impecible. Admittadly it was a Thur evening and the restaurant was not crowded. I would assume they would respond accordingly with a larger crowd.

Still a Gem
Went once again to one of my favorite Italian restaurants. I usually am there for lunch but went to dinner. Not surprisingly, it was at full capacity. Even though that was the case, they were able to manage the crowd well enough.
Always great specials, always service with a smile.
Great for business lunches/dinners.
