Italian
Since 1909, each Grisanti chef- Rinaldo, Elfo, Big John, David, Ronnie, Alex and Frank- has brought a singular touch to our family legacy in Memphis. Now that I am privileged to become a guardian of a more than century old Tuscan culinary tradition, I make it my mission to create "Antico Nuovo" dishes for your delight in our beautiful dining room. I aim to maintain Italian standards of excellence while bringing my signature and more modern contributions to the Grisanti culinary heritage.

The flavors in each of our recipes are blended with the finest ingredients, simplicity, elegance and love. I pledge that I will protect the Grisanti legacy while continuing to refine my art form. This restaurant is my gift to Memphis, the city that allowed my great-grandfather Rinaldo and our family to thrive and raise our children in the greatest place in the world. Salute!

Con amore,
Chef Judd Grisanti

    It was our first time eating at Ronnie Grisanti. It was a Saturday evening and moderately crowded. The food was outstanding. We had the tuscan butter app and salads and then eggplant parm, salmon, wreckfish and fettucine alfredo. But the service was clumsy at best. The waitress was quite friendly and warm but it felt like she was rushing us and almost hovering, coming back every other minute to ask how things are. It did not feel like a leisurely dinner. The entrees came while some of us were still eating salad. The person just came and out the dishes out but did not say what they were or know who was getting what.

    I go for the weekend fish specials! The Italian fare is consistent and delicious, but they have the best seafood and fish around! The other great part- welcoming and highly professional service- Ronnie’s has a GREAT staff!!!!

    My wife and I showed up at 6:55 PM for our 7:00 PM reservation to celebrate our anniversary here. We’ve been here several times with positive experiences. The young male hostess appeared flustered and said he needed a colleague to help him look up open table reservations. We waited patiently for his colleague. A few minutes later, another party of 2 came in for their 7:00 PM reservation. The hostess immediately seated them as my wife dropped her jaw. Then the hostess looked at us and said that was their last table and we would have to wait “at least” 15 - 20 min before another table was available. I replied “excuse me! You just seated that couple that arrived 10 minutes after us! We had a reservation too.” The hostess argued with me, saying “But they made their reservation before you made your reservation.” I said, “sir, we arrived earlier and had a reservation for the same time.” Then, I asked to speak with the manager, but the young man lied to us and said there was no manager there… at a 5 star restaurant on a Saturday night. Needless to say, we left after that and will not be back as long as the young gentleman working the hostess stand at 6:55 PM Nov 5, 2022 works there! If the manager of Ronnie Grisanti’s reads this, I would love to speak with them about our experience.

    The food was very good. The portion size of two of the meals was more than enough. However one person had the lasagna and felt the portion size could have been bigger. The waitress was very good. She was attentive without being intrusive.

    Very disappointed - bringing in out of town guests for a nice meal and they sat us near the entrance in the bar area - virtually no one else in the restaurant. As we got towards the end of the dinner - realized we were by the wait staff order entry and it was not a quiet or pleasant atmosphere. That area should be reserved for overflow or walk ins - not someone who made a reservation early in the week and was asked to confirm 3 times. I doubt we will be back. Food was ok - but not at the level we have gotten before.

    The fish, haddock, was too salty...The gelato, hazelnut, and the sorbet, lemon, were way too sweet. The bread was cold. These problems could be easily fixed, and I hope the chef is listening. ...

    Took my adult children out bc one was visiting from out of town. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. I enjoyed the eggplant dish and my children all enjoyed their food also. Asked for a table away from the bar bc the restaurant can be noisy. Chocolate cheesecake is way too rich for one person!!

    We were seated upstairs. So no ambiance. Would prefer to be in the main restaurant. It is difficult to get up there and you could tell the wait staff was tried of trudging up and down. I am glad they are busy and need the extra room to accommodate. The food is so good.
