Cannot say enough wonderful things about the meal, the service, the ambience of Grissini last night!! The best meal we've had in a long time!
We shared a special tuna tar tar appetizer, reminiscent of South Beach, Ossobuco special, and squid ink pasta seafood off the menu. Sauces were luscious and rich, meat was tender, and pasta was fresh!
Server recommended a Cabernet that paired well, and then chocolate lava cake and espesso capped off the perfect meal!!
Staff was friendly and very helpful, other customers were cheerful and also very satisfied.
Prices are not low, but for a special occasion absolutely worth the splurge!!

A lovely dining experience if overpriced. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and drink. The service was great, the ambiance elegant and relaxed. A great place to go for a romantic dinner for 2 or a special occasion. However be prepared to pay for their history and reputation.

One of my favorite restaurants. Sat on the patio for the first time. Service was good but not at the "Grissini" level I experienced in the past. Recommend they add a computer to the patio so the server doesn't have to keep going back to the indoor side to enter an order. One more server or runner would also speed things up.
Food as always was outrageous.
Love this place!

We have come here for 35 years. The waitress was horrible she spilled more wine on the table then in someone glass. If she would have been attentive we would have ordered several more bottles. The food was nothing special and small portions. The veal Milanese was a pathetic dish. They could hear us all complain and no one came over and talked to us. We had to remind them 3 times to please put a candle in the birthday cake and still the cake came with no candle.Pasta was fair,meat was just okay. Very disappointed at how this restaurant has gone down hill. Unfortunately this is the second time our meal was bad. This was for my moms birthday and we all left hungry. If you would like to discuss how poor our experience was please feel free to call or email me.

I’ve been going to Grissini for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. As far as I am concerned it’s the only genuine Italian restaurant in Bergen County.

The food was good, not great. But our waitress, or is it server, was exceptional. The Colossal Shrimp were big but not really a value. My meal was good but a tad under cooked. The soup was the best part. Very good, and I'm a soup guy. The ambiance was very nice. Very friendly staff from the moment we walked in the door. Down to the valet car park guys who could not have been nicer. Our table was along the window so we were a bit close to where the food was prepared but as it was just the 2 of us I don't think we were the target market. Overall a solid place. If my meal had been just a bit better I would have loved the experience. Prices were right where they should be, other than the shrimp. Our table was a bit too close to the couple next to us so we had to listen to a guy attempting to impress a gal on an obvious first date so that was also a distraction. Good, not great, although I am a foodie so I might be a bit harder on the food than the average bear. (but under cooked pasta is a mortal sin in my opinion)

Grissini is fantastic. Great service (Victor is the best), great food and ambience. Try a Martini with blue cheese olives and then fettuccine with truffles. Main dishes are also outstanding. Valet is complimentary and they take good care of your car. I highly recommend Grissini to anyone.

The food was EXCELLENT. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable. The only caveat was that we were charged more on our bill for items than was stated on the menu, but with prices soaring and other problems that are increasing lately I didn't make an issue of it. Out food was that good.

Good quality food but a bit overpriced. There were inconsistency among the price of the ports and main dishes on the menu, in their system, compared to the final check (I brought that up with the waiter who also confirmed that we were overcharged and the price on the check were 7+ higher than what were printed on the menu).
The gnocchi pesto was great in taste. Veal Costoletta (Milanese) which was excellent in taste as well if you don't mind the price.
One of the special dessert was lime tart p cream and I hope they add it to the menu onward.
If you live in Bergen county, and care for near by semi upscale northern Italian cuisine, then this place can be your top 3 choices.

Lots of people working there but they are unorganized. Didn’t get greeted when i came in right away. Once seated i was asked the same questions by each person because the other didn’t know what was done. Then once eating, waiter hardly came to check up. Fish was cooked excellent but pasta was completely undercooked. Food was otherwise decent.

Holy smokes! I've driven past.thia restaurant for years and finally decided to go with a friend for her birthday. Well... I am so upset I haven't eaten here sooner. From the valet I felt special! Customer service at level 10. The greeter was warm and friendly but not overly so. Our waiter was AMAZING! Great personality and very knowledgeable. The food... Man... This must be what real Italian tastes like. From the protein to the vegetables to dessert -- SPLENDID! I cannot wait to return.

I Love GRISSINI.. somehow their food keeps getting better.
I was at the restaurant on Sat night and it was buzzing!! I am a long time patron and enjoy their food and service every time.
On Saturday night.. the food was EXCEPTIONAL. From the scallops to tuna tartar to be a Milanese.. parpadelle.. everything was just excelllent. They just keep getting better. So happy they survived the pandemic and they have come roaring back!
