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!

We decided to sit at the bar so we could celebrate our birthday but also watch the baseball game. The bartender that night was absolutely great! She was so kind and friendly and we truly had a great time.
We made a reservation in advance and they a restaurant full of wonderful tables yet we were put in the back and had the selection between the table with paint chipping off the wall by the server station or the table by the restroom. In our opinion those tables should be reserved for walk in patrons. We had an out of town guest in and it was not impressive to be escorted to the last tables in the restaurant.
The service was perfect. My Sea Bass Special with Risotto was amazing.
Great ; server was outstanding!!!!
Highly recommend dining here but only if you prefer great food and excellent service.
Great dinner. Extremely loud at first
I will not be back- could get the same food out of the freezer section at Kroger.
Rita was our server she was knowledgeable and offered great recommendations.
We walked in for our reservation and 2 ladies were at the front counter. We were not properly greeted just asked do you have a reservation? Since when did hi welcome to ___ do you have reservations seem too much to expect? Anyway this was me and my wife’s first time in and they sat us in this dark corner table next to the bar and didn’t have Ben have a server just the bartender who was tied up trying to make drinks for the entire establishment so needless to say our service was terrible. Wrong food brought out first. And when the did get it right it was all wrong. Food temp was off. Taste was bland. Drinks pretty much empty the entire night we were having to catch her attention just to get simple things like silverware for my wife to be able to eat her food. We won’t be giving this place another chance it was just too many bad things in one night especially for a first time visiting.
Outstanding as usual!! Ronnie’s NEVER disappoints 👍Thank you! Tom and Suzanne Harvey
Love going to Grisantis! Service is always congenial, food delicious and wonderful ambience. Love it!
What a find! I should have known when I read the menu, written in perfect Italian. The ambience is beautiful including a mural of Lucca, where some of my people are from! We had the burrata and the octopus as appetizers, and my husband had the tuna in squid ink and I had the veal piccata. Delicious. Wonderful service by Isabella and Laura, and manager Randy gave us a wonderful history of the place. Best night of our vacation yet!
We had a reservation at 7:30. They said they were waiting on our table to be cleaned. We were not sat until 8pm. Did not receive our drinks until 8:20pm. By 8:30, our order had still not been taken. So we left.
Shame on me for not going sooner! Ir was so very good!
Will be back for lunch and dinner and lunch and dinner.
I wish I had taken a picture of my plate!
The red fish with red pepper risotto was
Probably the best dish I’ve ever had in my life!
I felt like I was in Rome!
The food was cold and was not good. We had reservations and were taken upstairs to a table that faced a wall. The waitress was nice. She was new. The toasted ravioli had not been toasted and was not even warm. We have always been a fan of Grisantis. But will not be back to this location.
No wait upon arrival. Beautiful restaurant, ambiance was bliss. The server was very well versed in the menu and it was a plus. The food was exquisite. Definitely will be going back.
The place is cool and cozy. The food is divine , also love love the bread!
Lobster on lobster tower was so tough could not cut and room temp, not cold
Halibut was bland and a bit mushy
Server never stopped to check on food until she picked up plates and the ask how was halibut to which we replied mediocre... no response.
Love this place. Great Italian food at great prices. Randi is always there working the floor and interacting with her guests. A Memphis Staple!!
Great night, great food.
Authentic Italian! Above average appetizers and salads - good wine list
Fantastic like always
Server put in the wrong order. Ended up having to wait twice as long for our food. Waited on the food, wrong order put in, take food back, had to start all over again. They comped the drinks, but when you have to wait that long, you almost don’t care anymore.
We were disappointed on the food, the chicken was over cooked and the risotto very salty. We told our server about the dish and she just said sorry but offered no solutions. We moved on to dessert which was just mediocre. Not coming back.
As huge fans of authentic Italian food, we were excited to visit Ronnie Grisanti's based on its excellent reviews. Unfortunately, the food was not to our taste... The soup was unpleasantly spicy (Tuscan cuisine?!), toasted ravioli were dry and the accompanied gravy wasn't delicate enough to save the dish. Veal escalopes were fried to death. Puttanesca was too soury (olive brine?). One can tell that there are great intentions in the kitchen, but the execution is a bit on the heavy side and could use some balancing... Other than the food, the place looked and felt great and the service was perfect.
Great food - actually it was TOO MUCH food! What a delight and problem to have that gave us the opportunity to enjoy our meal again the next day. Can't recommend the Eggplant Parmesan enough!
Our server Tamara was great! She makes the best Cosmo,too! Meal was perfect!
Had reservations and they got us to our table almost immediately. Started with cocktails apricot sour was Devine my wife said. Toasted ravioli appetizer was good. Soup special was She Crab and best I ever tasted. Served us bread that I dipped in the soup and it was perfect pairing. Wife had chicken parmigiana that was delicious and plentiful and ate for dinner the next night as well. I had the halibut special over shrimp and I believe was risotto that tasted very good. Couldn’t eat it all as the servings are large.
Highly recommend as one of the best Italian restaurants in Memphis.
Presley our waitress was great
Awesome as usual!! Great food, great drinks and wine, and excellent service!!
Had the small wedge salad...turned out to be lg wedge salad. Perfect! Manicotti for my entree. Delicious. The 3 of us shared calamari which was outstanding. Other 2 had chicken parmigiana and gave rave reviews. Our server was also bartending Thursday night, and she did a super job. Very attentive and personable.
