An unexpected gem. To be blunt, you don't expect this kind of atmosphere in a strip mall setting, but this is a really unique place. In a world of cookie-cutter Italian places, Grassa Gramma breaks the mold. Menu blends classics with some creative new dishes, service was exemplary, and the setting was a delight.

My wife and I heard about this place and gave it a try for our anniversary. The atmosphere and architecture are first noticed walking into the oversized doors and immediately greeted by the warm friendly staff. The talk ceilings, bar area on the left, eating rooms on the right front, and the main dining area in front. You really start to appreciate the investment that's been made to welcome you as you enter the restaurant. One early word of caution don't fill up on bread because the pasta and sauces are pretty rich. Save to room for the main courses :-). We sat in a booth on the Lower right, our waiter was on point and educated us on the history, and we had the manager stop by while we were eating to talk about Italy and ensure meal was as good as we expected. Delighted with this place. The atmosphere was unique and elegant, the food was delicious, looking forward to returning with friends to enjoy and evening out

Excellent service, not much a wait for table past reservation time. Food was great and nice portions. A few more vegetarian choices would be nice. This was our first time eating g indoors since vivid. The noise level was a bit too much at times, even though we were at a table for two. We will return during the special offerings. We are living on retirement income and can't splurge often..

We had a lovely dinner at Grassa Gramma. We sat at one of the bicycle tables by the fountain. The sound of the water added to the calming yet energetic ambiance. Our server started us off with a complimentary salud of Chianti.

Our table shared the Fig & Pig pizza which was both sweet & savory. It was topped with fresh, seasoned arugula. This is my favorite thing to eat here and I would come back JUST for this.

My two friends each had a Caprese salad and aid it was the best they ever had. One friend had the double bacon carbonara and she was happy with the thick authentic noodles and creamy bacon flavor.

I split the Lamb Lollipop entree and unfortunately the lamb was gritty and tough, and the broccolini was dry. Otherwise I would have given the food 5 stars just based on the starters.

Our table shared the tiramisu for dessert. I don’t usually like tiramisu, but the cake layers at Grassa Gramma are made with espresso and Kahlua, with layers of mascarpone cream. It was delectable.

All in all, Grassa Gramma is a transporting experience - I will definitely be back with friends!

The decor is Vegas-like - a bit over the top. Stone floors and walls makes for an acoustic nightmare.

The food was average -- no specials from the kitchen was a dead give away that this wasn't going to be an outstanding meal. The food, as I said, was average. It was tasty enough, but ...

The crab fitter was more of a hushpuppy than a fritter and was way more fritter than crab.

The risotto appeared to have been par-boiled and the finished too quickly.

The Carbonara was a bit soupy and the pasta was both too thick and too chewy.

And no, I didn't complain about any of this. I do believe the floor management would have done just about anything to make us happy, but ... some things you just can't fix.

The service was competent and attentive, but with the ambient noise level approaching that of a busy street, it was difficult to hear. And forget an intimate conversation with your dinner guests. Just not possible.

So, it was an ok night. Nothing special, but certainly not the worst.

We LOVE Grassa Gramma. Our server Jamie is the best of the best. You just want to be her best friend before you leave. She really knows what customer service is all about. The food is delicious as always. We drive 40 mins one way to eat here and we will continue to do so. With great service, great food, and ambiance who wouldn’t keep coming back. I am glad the covid restrictions are over and business is back to usual.

Hands down best italian in Louisville. We will definitely come back with for special occasions or for a date night after a long week again. The focaccia bread was perfect without need for oil or butter. We ordered duck meatballs which carried so much flavor! Afterwards we shared two pasta dishes and were both impressed with the palete experience. The house chianti is amazing! The ambiance was amazing, it feels like you're in Italy. The layout created a wonderful atmosphere and experience for our date night. We finished the night with a limoncello dessert which was shareable and two cocktails which were delightful!

Grassa Gramma was good but not great! The food was ok, service was good but bordered on being intrusive. Overall, it was a good experience, I probably would not go back. I was hoping it was a good as some authentic Italian places we have been to in New York, but it fell short.

First time here. We did a variety of dishes. Pasta, pizza, appetizers and desert, along with a bottle of red wine. Pasta was freshly made and delicious. Pizza was cooked in a wood fire oven and also was delicious. Did not care for the lobster corn fritter but the duck meatballs where good. Got to see an old friend Trett, he use to be the general manager at Volarie’s and now runs Grassa Gramma. He does a fabulous job. The outside and inside of the establishment reminds you of a old European town. Very rustic and authentic. A lot of thought went into it. We will definitely return.
