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

Hostess seemed to not want to check us in for our reservation, stating it wasn’t in her system. She seemed annoyed almost. However, our sever was amazing, offering excellent choices for our early dinner.
The food was delicious and service was on point.

We had a great dinner! The only negative thing is that my husband and I usually split an entree because we will order an appetizer and dessert. This split plate charge was very high. Probably more than my dessert 😳

This was our first visit to Ronnie's at this location. We remember going to the one on Poplar.

We were blown away and very pleased with the food and service. They really made the space their own and I believe they will be here for a long time. Their name carries a lot of weight but the experience will make us come back. Congrats!

We had very high hopes for this restaurant and though we enjoyed our meals, the service left us underwhelmed. We had an 8pm reservation and were seated immediately in a very nice booth. However we were never greeted by one of hosts (one was seating another couple). She just looked at us and said nothing until we spoke to her. Very odd. Our waiter was equally odd. Though very friendly, he was repetitive (he told us his name at least 6 times!) and intrusive. The quality of this restaurant would lead one to expect that the server would more skilled at knowing when to check on the customer and when to wait. He seemed to have no ability to assess the situation. Our food (fettuccine Alfredo and blue cheese stuffed filet) were excellent (we were not fans of the toasted ravioli) and the tiramisu was outstanding. However while we were finishing our dinner, a man in a suit ( a manager, we assume), started assembling 2 top tables right next to us. Not just replacing table linen or cutlery but actually putting tables together...loudly. And then our server started sweeping under tables. It felt like we were at iHop not a nice restaurant. Though we might try this restaurant again as the food was very good, if the service is a repeat of this one, we won’t return.

The customer service from the hostess was concerning. We had a reservation and were given 3 options for seating: upstairs where there was a large party, downstairs or outside patio. I asked if we could have a booth, seeing that several were open. Response from hostess, “those are only for people who have a reservation. I responded we have a reservation. Hostess replied booths are for reservations of 3-4. Some of the booths were currently occupied by only 2 people. An associate over heard the conversation and states, here’s my business card. Next time you want a booth, call me. Then she escorts us to a booth.

Ronnie Grisanti's was fantastic! First time for us at this new location. Our traditional meal was delicious, both the salad and entree. Our waitress, Crystal, was wonderful. She was helpful with the menu selections and was super attentive. And she was a delight! The meal was paced nicely and the experience was super. We will be back soon!

We really appreciate that the chef made a vegetarian pasta dish for us, since there's very little on the menu for a vegetarian or vegan. However, the price of26.00 or 27.00 ( cannot remember) seems a little high. Just an opinion.

This restaurant reminds me of favorite restaurants in DC: not huge, but with a cozy ambiance and cool vibe. Our waitress was wonderful and attentive. The food was delicious! I ordered tuna and my daughter ordered salmon. Both were cooked to perfection, according to how we requested. We ended the meal with gelato on the advice of our waitress and it was creamy and delicious. Highly recommend!

Family birthday celebration. First time visiting this restaurant. Really, really enjoyed everything. My only tiny issue is the lighting. It was hard to get our eyes adjusted to the low and almost orange tinted light, but everything else was great. Elfo Special, manicotti, veal saltimbocca, chicken parmigiana, toasted ravioli, calamari...excellent.

The fish was tough because it was raw. When it was brought back the sides were cold. The staff was not particularly concerned

Our first time at Grisanti’s was at a late lunch several weeks ago. At that time, we would have given all 5’s. On Saturday evening we were seated at the same booth so we could compare each visit equally. The noise level was out of sight. It ruined our second visit so we won’t be eating dinner with you again. We will however, give lunch another try.
Too many patrons squeezed into a small restaurant. Eliminate some tables or increase the square footage into the next door address. As always, great food & service!

Fantastic meal with exceptional service. Found the light level a bit low, but manageable and the noise a bit more than necessary. Both are more than offset by the flavors and attention to details in service.
