Very good service, nice quiet back patio. Food was ok, but overpriced for what it was. We were there for Mother's Day lunch, but they did not serve any of their lunch items, only dinner. Disappointing overall.

The food was amazing as usual. The service was great. The flavors as wonderful and each time we visit we enjoy the food. It is definitely one of our favorite spots. The portions are generous relative to the value. We will certainly be back.

We always love coming here. The wait staff is always polite and professional. And of course Guiseppe is an excellent host. The food is always good and consistent. A little pricey but we always enjoy so it's worth the trip! Highly recommend!

Grissini is a gem. Old school. Family owned. They take pride in what they do. Food is always top flight. Staff is friendly, efficient, and courteous. If you like Old Blue Eyes, Dino, Bennett, the personal touch, ambiance, and great dining, you should not pass this up...say hi to Giuseppe for me while you're there...he'll take care of you like you were family.

This restaurant used to be romantic with an old charming decor. Unfortunately, it has changed and probably due to COVID. The decor was not pleasant, the restaurant was not well maintained, the floor was dirty, the lights were too bright, and there was only one waiter serving the whole restaurant together with the owner himself. So, service was under par as well. The food was still good. But, I believe this was the last time I dined at this restaurant. Overall, I do not recommend this restaurant.

I don't think there is a better Italian Restaurant in Southern California. The choices for pasta are unlimited, and they are willing to give you suggestion for the best pasta for each of the varied sauces. This is truly a gem!

The food was so good. The vodka sauce and the Arrabiata sauce were some of the best I’ve had. I have paid a lot more at other restaurants for way less quality. The value was very good. The food was perfect!
They also had a great wine selection. Not only local but several imported options.

Our experience was great except for the attitude of the Maitre/owner of the establishment. He was rude and unreasonable due to the fact we had a Groupon. He would only honor (1) Groupon per table and made us sit at two different tables. We tried to reason with him that he could free up another table and maximize his income potential. He was getting the same amount of money from us whether or not we sat at one or two tables. Additionally, he should have been grateful to have customers during these trying times. Needless to say, we won't be going back. The purpose of the Groupon is to bring in new business so that hopefully they will come back. We enjoyed the food and service and would have come back. Unfortunately, the actions of the owner negated any possibility of this happening for us and the other couple we went to dinner with.

Great food! Great ambiance. The best part is when the owner came over to see if everything was OK. He was an older gentleman, dressed in a suit with a matching tie and pocket handkerchief. So classy.

Absolutely delicious! The service, the wine, the food, everything was incredible. After dinner I inquired about having a rehearsal dinner and the owner took initiative to provide me with several menu options and showed us the private room. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quality meal.

Cozy, old school Italian feel, complete with the attentive, personal and charming owner/Host. Romantic vibe. Candlelight ambience. Feels familiar - like your go-to neighborhood restaurant, where “everybody knows your name“. There is a very wide variety of dishes to choose from, and you can design your own (fresh) pasta entree. You can’t go wrong with the baked dishes, although my husband had a filet Mignon which was melt in your mouth delicious. I loved the house salad. Also noticed a private room in the back which I assume can be rented out for private events.

Grissini is an elegant and old fashioned dining experience! We were delighted to find such a lovely place in the Agoura Hills area and it is a far better option then the more typical chain establishments. Giuseppe is a wonderful host and the staff is top notch. By the way, the food is excellent - real Italian favorites! We are planning to go back with our whole family!
