The scallops were undercook and the fish tasted frozen. Way overpriced for the food! Paid $175 for lunch for stuff pepper appetizer, scallops for two, and two fish lunches-no alcohol. Much better choices elsewhere. Not worth the value.

Very noisy, small space. My husband’s elbows were touching every person that was passing by. The waiter cleaned my side of the table but not my husband’s side and the food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary. Maybe we’ll just sit at the bar next time

I have been here 4x in the past 6 months. Every time I have a service issue and it’s always with the same waiter. I am either charged for something I didn’t order, given a more expensive glass of wine than what I asked for and therefore charged more and now my credit card was charged twice for the same amount.
The food is good, the noise level is very loud so if your not bothered by that its ok, but you have to be on top of your charges because my consistent experience now is getting ripped off

The service was impeccable and the food magnificent. The staff was friendly and warm, and were super attentive. We didn’t order appetizers this time, but the mains - which were specials - were amazing, and the desserts were heavenly. We will definitely be back!

The menu over the years has been simplified with more everyday food choices. Prices have been lowered to reflect that. More many, this is an excellent reason to have an above average meal here. Awhile back, Grissini’s was a very highly regarded dining establishment with many complex choices and prices to match. They are friendly and courteous and have a loyal following even after the changeover to more pedestrian choices and prices.
Nothing to be critical about Grissini’s I just miss the level of “fancy” they were known for. Enjoyable either way.

Food is almost always top notch. Regardless of the course, the portions, temperatures, flavors, textures and smells all seem to have been carefully crated. The environs are sort of like a redone diner.. narrow and long but appointed quite luxuriously if tackily. The wine list is predictably overpriced but comprehensive. The clientele are almost always the will-heeled Bergen County elites (somehow daily they park a Bentley near the front door, and somehow it's never mine :-). The waiters are all Italian or Latin-literate, which has its own charm. There are usually many waiters hanging around - often chatting loudly in the narrow aisle - but service is a bit on the indifferent side. Prices are insane.

The best Italian restaurant in northern NJ! Grissini’s could easily be in NYC and compete with the top traditional Italian restaurants. Always a pleasure to come here. The food is absolutely outstanding. The menu has a lot of options, great for pasta, fish, meat and Incredible wines. An absolute must. The quality of food is exceptional.

Food and service was wonderful. My wife and I went to celebrate her birthday and were seated next to a large group with 3 children. The 2 young boys maybe 8 to 10 years old were out of control and not being controlled by their parents. One boy kicked the chair and sent the rear leg of the chair into my leg causing pain and a welt on my leg. When I asked the father to please watch his child he simply said” kids will be kids”. 10 minutes later the second boy jumped out of his chair and spilled his soda all over the floor narrowly missing my wife’s shoes. This time I told the father to control his children or I would call the maitre ‘d.
His rude answer nearly caused us to “take it outside”. Luckily his wife got the family to settle down and they left soon after our appetizers arrived. The rest of the meal and experience was great but we missed having a quiet start to our cocktails.
The management should either restrict young children on a busy Saturday night or seat them in a more secluded area.
