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

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.

Very good.looking for a certain dish Ronnie use to make with salmon, pasta. Judd said he’d make it if I could tell him about it. I’m working on it.

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!

Great atmosphere, food was delicious and our servers were very nice & did a great job!! I will definitely go again!! I wish I had ordered a Italian dish instead of the salmon! It was good. It I know the Italian dishes would have been better!

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.

Italian food and good company must be a must for golf enthusiasts, because this restaurant was packed with shorts and polo shirts. This is not a dog or complaint just an observation. The staff was still very nice and attentive even with the restaurant closing an hour before we sat down for our reservation. Out server Sharon was great, the other wait staff checked on us throughout our dining and someone was always a gesture away from helping. The food was great from the fresh oysters to the Elfo Special.

FedEx classic weekend did not stop Girsanti from doing a wonderful job.

Our server, Patricia, was very good and we give her 5 stars for sure. The hostess was not friendly at all. Kind of a bummer upon arrival. The food was good. Prices were elevated compared to similar restaurants. Overall a good experience.
