Max did an excellent job!!!
Seating process was disorganized. Food was great but its preparation took a long time. Server was very attentive. Bar seating was a little loud.
Very good food, excellent service. Would definitely return.
The interior is setup like a small Italian village town square, so it feels like you are eating at an outdoor cafe. Wonderful food, great service
Loved the food and service! Very cool atmosphere and ambiance !
Great place to celebrate a birthday.

It was loud in the restaurant but the ambiance and service were phenomenal!
Very nice. Will return for delicious meal.
Food and service always awesome. Love the atmosphere here.
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.

Homemade pasta and sauce, need I say more. And the sample wine toast with the waiter starts the meal off right. Salute!
Wonderful food, excellent staff! Megan was our server and was just excellent. I didn’t get the name of the gentleman that kept popping by with water, but some of the best service I’ve ever received. I highly recommend this experience to anyone
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
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback! Firstly, again, Happy Anniversary! Reading your review reminds us of exactly why we put so much time and effort into perfecting the little details. We want to be known as a place you can come visit for any reason, from celebrating an anniversary to celebrating a good meal, and leave feeling the exact same way. You and your patronage are greatly appreciated! We hope to welcome you back again soon and for years to come!
We ordered the steak and the entire plate was just a mess, presented poorly, tasted worse. Service did not match the price level.
My wife and me really enjoyed the night. Our waiter Parker was outstanding, he let us take our time and we were never rushed at anytime. Will return in the near future.
We enjoyed the experience and the meal! Our waiter was awesome.
They made my sister’s bday very special! Wonderful experience!
The service was amazing. Seating was perfect. Would have given 5 stars, but two of us ordered the porchops and both were dry. The other dishes we had were excellent.
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..
I think the food has just been average, as this is my 3rd visit. The service has been great and the ambiance is great!
Celebrating a 40th birthday. I had requested through Opentable to be seated ina certain area but wasn’t.
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!
Perfect Mom’s Night Out location with a nice, quiet booth tucked away. Great service, quick delivery and delicious! The tiramisu was delightful.
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.
The atmosphere is worth a visit. Service was excellent. Food is a bit pricey but delicious. Lots of fun!
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!
Had a great time. Rachel and Brad took great care of us and we finally were able to sit in the famous Gucci table!
Love the ambiance! Great bar staff. Good drinks and food but the over attentive waitstaff in the dining room made us feel a bit rushed. Next time might just stay in the bar.
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.
The food was delicious! The service is amazing and the atmosphere is wonderful.
Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Best ambiance of any restaurant I’ve visited in Louisville
Very enjoyable night out!
Went here for my birthday because I wanted to try somewhere that made their own pasta. They did not disappoint! Food and service were fantastic!
Great first time experience at this novel restaurant. Food quality exceeded expectations.
Food was wonderful, service was excellent. Awesome experience
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.
