    While there were upscale things to order, as a teen on a budget, two pizzas cost less than going to Huddle House. The pizza was divine and service was outstanding. I can’t wait to go back!

    Fried cheese wasn’t hot, pasta was tough, dessert was good, but we have had better. Server was good. We wouldn’t go back. It was a mediocre experience at best.

    We were there for Valentines Day the food was awesome I think they were short handed My husband ordered a salad they brought it out and realized we had no silverware so they brought us both a fork and walked away only to realize he forgot to give us a napkin. I got Chicken Parmesan and my husband had Lamb Chops he received a knife I had to ask twice for one. The wine was awesome it was 1/2 price Wednesday our server needed to be trained a little on pouring wine usually they pour just a little until one of us taste it for approval but that didn't happened other than that we had a nice time.

    First time dining here. We had the beet salad, the eggplant parmigiana, and the linguine with Sunday gravy. The salad was excellent, the rest was very good as well. We sat at the bar and received great service and enjoyed conversations with the other patrons at the bar. Easy to see why the restaurant was full inside and outside. We will go back often.

    First time eating at GrandTicino and thought it was very good. My husband got the salmon and said the flavor was great but a bit overcooked. I got the chicken caprese sandwich at the recommendation of our waiter and it was very good. We will be back.

    Haven’t been here to eat in the restaurant since Covid. It was a very enjoyable experience eating here. The service was great as the server was very attentive and didn’t hurry us to order. The food presentation was beautiful and the food delicious. Portions were generous. Can’t wait to go back again.

    I made a reservation on OpenTable. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess stated that there was no reservation for us. I ordered the same entrée as I did a few months previous. There was no comparison in the two entrées. The earlier entrée was delicious and I could not wait to order again. Recent visit made me never want to order this again. The server brought our food and never returned to refilled our glasses. Very disappointing experience - especially for the price.
