As always, Grassa Gramma delivers when it comes to a fun atmosphere, delicious food and excellent service. Tarek and his staff are so personable and Ron Rice is an amazing chef. Grassa Gramma is our favorite go-to restaurant when we want authentic Italian cuisine.

The place is positively beautiful! As soon as you step thru the door you are transported out of Louisville to another world. The food is scrumptious! My husband wanted to take my garlic bread too immediately after he ate his first bite and every dish that followed was just as delicious. My only complaint is that it is rather pricey so it will have to be a special occasion place for us (we were celebrating our anniversary) but it certainly delivers. It was everything I had hoped it would be.

Wonderful date night experience from the moment we opened the giant wood doors. Felt like we walked through a portal straight to Italy. Perfect ambience from the decor, lighting, and music. Food was excellent and Service was even better. Our server Parker always seemed to be there whenever we needed anything, yet my wife and I still felt like it was a private dinner with just the two of us. One of the best date night experiences we have ever had together. We will definitely be returning the next opportunity or excuse we get to come back and try different things on the menu. Thank you!

Great food, large portions for the price. The restaurant itself designed as an Italian villa makes for a unique setting and for excellent special occasion dining. Service was exemplary, always quickly present but never to the point of disturbance or hovering. A great choice for homemade Italian food.

They never seem to seat your reservation on time-a little disappointing. The food was really good. Nice presentation and flavorful. I was disappointed in the time it took to receive the main course. It took far too long for my liking. Other than that, it was a delightful experience. The atmosphere is fun and inviting.

We love Grassa. So, when my sister and brother in law came into town I knew I had to take them. We had a party of 8 and were seated promptly at our reservation time. Our server Josh was the best! Friendly, fun, and appropriately attentive. The toast before dinner is always a treat. My brother in law ordered the sole and thought it bland, but the rest of us really enjoyed our entrees. The salads are delicious, as are the desserts. I do wish they'd come around more often with the bread. Such a fun atmosphere and convenient location, we'll be back again and again.

It's a beautiful place, we got the veal and it was huge, but the meat was tasteless, everyone else liked their meal ok, but didn't knock our socks off for the price. The best part was the server, she was excellent, great personality, just disappointed with the food.

Hostess did not make us feel welcome. Server was great so that balanced out the overall service. Food was good but not exciting. Cocktails were fair. Bartender was very friendly but he didn’t use the ingredient on the menu, replacing it with Ameretto. Will try pizza if we go again.

The only complaint I have is the lighting is terrible. I’ve mentioned this every time I’ve been there which is five times I believe. You can’t read the menu unless you in the chair under the light. Otherwise I and others had to use the flashlight on my eye phone. Please fix it.

Thank you

We dined on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, arriving just before 6PM. Seating was prompt but the service went downhill quickly thereafter.

The wait staff was overly bothering. Someone was at our table taking a plate, filling water glasses, rushing to grab used utensils not less than 15 times during our dining. It became near impossible to have a conversation at our dinner table because we were interrupted so often. The interruption wasn't discrete; it was full reach across the table, grab your plate as soon as the last bite was eaten, invasion.

The Management strongly needs to train their staff on how NOT to be intrusive by sending their staff to training at places that get the service level right --- Morton's, Ruth Chris, etc.

The pasta courses were good but not great. Taste was good but salt level was more than I like.

It would be difficult to recommend Grassa Gramma as there are many other places to eat in Louisville that do a better job with service.

Horrible and not anything close to what we expected. Same owner as two other restaurants we visit often and like a lot. The server was like a used car salesperson trying to up sell constantly. It’s already overpriced, so no need to keep pushing side items, wine, and desserts. Tables are also tiny and there’s no room for plates and glasses or anything else. Really disappointed and bad experience - we won’t be back!

Birthday celebration
Thought birthday girl would get a birthday dessert. The birthday was recognized verbally but no special treat
Server was superb. He saved the evening experience
Veal chop was over cooked. Hard to cut & very dry.
Loud. Hard to talk.
I have visited several times and this dinner was a disappointment
