We had a wonderful dinner. I think $38 margarita pizza was expensive. Beet salad was very large. It was good to share.

First time at Grissini and I was pleasantly surprised. The food quality and variety was excellent and so was the service. I will definitely visit again the next time I'm in the area.

Food was fantastic. Will definitely go back. Service was slow and our server acted like he was doing us a favor, was the only negative . Owner was super sweet and did what he could to make up for, what seemed like, a short staff.

Nevertheless, we truly enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back.

Every time we've been to Grissini's we've had wonderful food. And the waiters are so helpful and supportive. In fact, we started outside but realize it was getting cool. Even though they had already put a heater out there ahead of time, our guest felt we needed to go inside. They were so efficient and fast in provided a delightful booth for us in their good looking dining room. We love this place. It is not visible from Agoura Rd. because it is behind trees, so hopefully people notice their sign and realize how attractive their environment is.

We had a wonderful dinner at Grissini last night. The food was delicious and the ambiance was nice. Our server, Luis, did an excellent job.
Looking forward to going back to dine soon.

We sat outside. The ambiance was fine. The wait service was pleasant and the food was excellent. I had a special of linguine with crab meat and prawn. It was delicious. Well worth it as it was reasonably priced.

My favorite place! The quality of food is a 10, Giuseppe the owner takes pride in each dish that is prepared. The warmth you feel when dining here is like being in Italy. I recommend dining at this restaurant.

Prices are slightly more than I would expect for what you receive. Maybe limit the offering of sauces to keep the cost for a simple bowl of pasta down? Rotate them maybe?

July 2021 - First time to this Italian spot that is sort of tucked away. Food was pretty good overall - although some dishes were simply better than others - the table was a little odd and we were constantly trying to make sure we didn't knock anything over so i cannot give a 4 for ambiance - service was good but not super attentive and at this price point should have been a tad better - Its that lack of consistency that keeps me from giving the place an overall 4 although the food will probably bring me back to try it out again and maybe next time a 4 will be in order

This restaurant used to be very busy and it was pretty quiet. I’m guessing it might be due to the level of service . The food was actually very good but the service was abysmal . Waiter couldn’t explain the menu. A second glass of wine was so slow in finally arriving that my friend had finished his meal and sent it back. Usually, a restaurant with prices like this will just comp it to make you happy. No offer was even made. Water was not filled promptly at all. The saving grace was the food was really good. However that’s not enough when you spend $75 per person with tip

A very nice neighborhood restaurant. The food is very good, the menu has something to please everyone and the ambiance is good. We sat outside for a date night and it was very enjoyable. Probably because of the location, the restaurant was not as crowded as some nearby. That's a plus. Highly recommended

We were disappointed with the pasta and eggplant dishes which were not as good as other Italian restaurants in the area. The bread was stale and appeared old. The restaurant was empty with one other group , the door was open, and air conditioning appeared to not be on. The server and his helper were attentive and provided good service.

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.

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!
