Brought to you by the Fairsted Kitchen team, Grassona's Italian serves creative Italian comfort fare inspired by a love of Grandma's red sauce cooking.

With heaping antipasto platters, hearty pastas, and tongue in cheek riffs on Italian standards, our warm and welcoming experience stretches from quick weeknight suppers to lingering weekend feasts. Come for our family style menu that makes group dining a delicious breeze. And bring the children for our Bambino's menu, with smaller portions of the same honest, scratch cooking from the dinner menu.

Find the perfect partner to your meal our deep Italian wine list overseen by Proprietor & Sommelier Steve Bowman. Or delve into our bar offering timeless classic cocktail alongside innovative house creations.

In the heart of Brookline's Washington Square, Grassona's Italian is convenient to many local colleges. We are a quick hop from BC, BU, Simmons, and Emmanuel, halfway along Beacon street between Kenmore and Cleveland Circle.
