Wonderful restaurant!!!! This is just like be on the East Coast for dining!
The food at Grassini Ristorante Italiano is excellent. Remember, you get what you pay for.
Giuseppe and Barbara are wonderful and thoughtful hosts. We enjoyed our plates of Vitello, pollo e pasta arribbiata...excellent!!! Also, saluti to our cammeriere who took perfect care of us!!!
First time visitor. The owner was sweet and friendly. Generally the service was very good, however the pounded breaded chicken portion was too small! Salad prices are very expensive $17.00 for a dinner size beet salad. The bolognese special was the best. What was unfortunate was the attitude , though subtle of the waiter when I told him I expected my salad to have greens, it was only hearts of palm and artichokes. He was defensive , rather then saying sorry or offering a solution!! After that he seemed less friendly, not good!
My guess is other dishes are much better. I may go back. The reviews were so good, this is why I chose the restaurant. I was disappointed the three of us did not have a good food experience.
I had Extraordinary pasta special and my wife had the halibut with a side of pasta aglia olio. Torta di la nonna was awesome dessert.
We went with friends and all of us liked the restaurant very much. The only real issue was that it’s way too dark. You HAD to use your phone to read the menu. I don’t mind dim lighting but his was too dark. It’s also was a little loud. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Great food and great service. Looking forward to going back!
Always amazing food.
We had wonderful meal...beautifully prepared upscale Italian food. After dinner, the owner,
Giuseppe can to our table and shared a dolce and limoncello with us. It was a wonderful evening!!!
As always Grissinni's was what we have come to expect. Great food and great service.
This is a classic, old school Italian Restaurant. The food is very good and they have a large wine selection.
We LOVE Grissini. This was our second time this week! Everyone is so friendly and the food is delicious. Highly recommend this neighborhood gem.
The restaurant was fantastic in every aspect. From the service to the food, every bit of the experience was exceptional.
Love all about this place! Owner makes you feel you’re in his home.
The best part was our very friendly, knowledgeable waiter.
Unfortunately the chicken dish I ordered had chicken breast that was very difficult to cut into
(usually chicken breasts are very tender). My husband ordered prawns over pasta and he struggled to remove the prawns from the shell! He had to work hard to get a few small pieces out. We will not be returning to Grissini!
Amazing ambiance with a romantic feel. Perfect date night for us! We shared a signature salad, I had the chicken parmesan, and my wife had the lobster ravioli with vodka sauce. All three were amazing! Found our new favorite Italian place!
We went for New Year's Eve. The food and atmosphere were great. Really enjoyed it.
Great meal as always. Great service too. Personal service,
A great Christmas Eve dinner. Outstanding service. Our food was delicious. If I could make one little suggestion... I had the bolognase sauce and while it was very good, it was a bit on the skimpy side. Just a tad more sauce would have made this dish better.
Grissini’s is the finest authentic Italian restaurant in California. Exceptional food, service and comfortable setting. It’s second to none!!
Grissini's is a wonderful Italian cuisine that any dish is a treat! Fresh food, amazing service and owner is a sweet man that always makes you feel like your at his personal home!
Great food as usual. You can never go wrong, delicious food and superb service. This is probably our 8th visit and it only gets better.
Been in two weeks in a row. Food is wonderful. Specials have made me change my mind from what I was going to chose from the menu.
"Charming and warm ambience and service. Terrific food...a special experience."
Staying on vacation at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village, I was excited to try what seemed like an authentic, cozy locally-run Italian restaurant earlier this week. It was a great decision and decided to return for a second visit. First of all, the menu is one of the best I have seen with the entire create your own pasta section. The egg-drop style soup with spinach in chicken broth, carbonara, and chocolate mousse dessert were all tasty. Lastly, the service was outstanding and restaurant decorated beautifully for the holidays. I will definitely return in the future if in this area on my next vacation.

Since the restaurant was out of pancetta on this particular evening, I switched from carbonara to alfredo and it was delicious. Also, the fried cheese appetizer, egg-drop soup with spinach in chicken broth, and chocolate mousse dessert were all tasty.

Giuseppe you and your people are the best! Can't wait to come back, soon & often!
My new favorite restaurant. Have eaten there 5 times and it is consistently superb.
Our favorite Italian restaurant. Everything is made from scratch every day. Delic!!
We hadn’t been here in a while, were in the area and craving Italian so stopped in. I had the sole with spinach instead of mashed potatoes. Excellent! I think it’s my favorite dish on the menu. My boyfriend had the create your own pasta w/ the tricolor spaghetti and meat sauce w/ a couple a meatballs too. He liked it and said it was good. We started w/ the onion soup-really good.
This is an excellent dining experience. Everyone from the owner to the wait staff makes you feel welcome and valued. This restaurant has old world charm and offers excellent drinks, entrees and desserts.
Great Italian food with fresh pasta, large menu selection, nice atmosphere and very friendly attentive manager.
New waiter wasn't as attentive as their regular wait staff, who are fantastic. Have never been disappointed going to Grissini's!
It was a lovely dinner out with my husband and 2 middle school aged children. The kids had penne pasta with butter and Parmesan (the waiter didn't bat an eye) while the adults enjoyed veal parmesan and the lobster bisque. Something for everyone! and it was all delicious.
Love the atmosphere, and the fact that the owner stop by to greet us and ask about the service. As my date noted, however, they are doing themselves an injustice by locating at the back of a shopping center, making them difficult to find.
Romantic restaurant with great food and service. Highly recommended for dates and romantic dining.
Love the owner! Great guy
The restaurant was very noisy, the food was mediocre, and the cocktails were poor.
Charming! We celebrated an anniversary. My husband's gnocchi dish with truffle sauce was to die for. My swordfish was pretty good, a little on the dry side, flavor of sauce was very good. Salads were yummy. Service was exceptional. Quiet and romantic, we truly appreciated the privacy of our booth and quiet atmosphere.
Thank you once again for an amazing dinner at our favorite restaurant.
The Salmon was fresh on a plank with fabulous Roasted potatoes. Every thing delicious. My Husband has Salmon with pasta and arugula.
Our waiter Patrick made our evening complete.
We look forward to joining you for dinner later this month:
