It was my first lunch here and won't be the last. The food was extremely nice. In particular, as I'm Sicilian, I particularly appreciated the real Ricotta cheese at the end. Very recommended.

Great local Italian restaurant, serving regional food from Calabria. My pasta dish of black pasta with octopus and olives was delicious!

What a gem, this little restaurant impresses in the right way. The food is authentic Italian, organic options, homemade pasta yum yum. Decent wine choice to complement the menu. Excellent service & attention to your order. Pretty good value comparing to other newbies in Dubllin. My own veggie main could’ve been a bit more generous in portion apart from that thumbs up all the way.
We didn’t order a dessert but the tiramisu looked delish, defo a reason to return. Id recommend Grano as a great date spot.

The food is delicious and the staff are brilliant however I went to the trouble of reserving a table specifically at 1 o clock. Our order was taken very promptly after arriving yet our food was not served until 1.50pm. This was a lunch visit and like every other employee we have an allocated lunch time (2pm in this case).

The restaurant was in no way packed so there was no reason for this delay in service. You open for lunch daily, I am sure you have had your fair share of busy/quiet days unfortunately the timing was managed very badly on this occasion.

A bit disappointed as had to wait for a booking so was expecting a better meal.
We were a party of four and only one person really enjoyed the meal. The swordfish and aubergine dish was really nice. Portions are quite small which means you need to order a side dish which increases the bill. Nice venue and staff.

It was our first time attending Grano and we will definitely return. To begin, we shared some Crostini which was served with a very spicy sausage on a burner. For starters, I had the Meatballs which were fab! My girlfriend Emma had the Mackerel. Our mains were both amazing Pasta dishes. For Dessert, I had the Tiramisu. I have no hesitation recommending Grano. The whole experience was nice and relaxed from start to finish. We enjoyed a nice bottle of White Wine (Grillo) from Sicily. Price wise, the food and drink was very reasonable. Looking forward to heading back to Grano again!

Tried this restaurant for the first time for lunch and fell in love with it. Great food, authentic Italian taste and superb flavour. The tiramisu was stunning, melt in the mouth yum. I’ll definitely be returning as I would like to explore the evening menu and ambience. Looking forward to it already.

Booked about a week in advance for a Wednesday night and glad we did. By 7.30pm the compact, but cosy, dining room was packed.

Opted for some shared nibbles / starters to begin with. The Scandalduja spreadable sausage was delicious with a serious kick off it. The burrata and culatta was delicious but the Lardo di Mora was a little underwhelming.

For mains I had the Amatriciana Di Maiale Nero which was a little on smokey side for me, while the other half had the Papardelle al ragú Di Cinghiale which from the few mouthfuls I tasted was tasty!

Full after all that it was a shared deconstructed cannolo for dessert - divine!

Grano is the perfect restaurant for every occasion. The warm welcome and personal service is so in keeping with any trattoria you will experience in Italy. Roberto is a wonderful host and made my mother feel very special for her birthday. This is all before even commenting on the delicious food, excellent wine list and beautiful ambience. It honestly does not get better than this!

We are locals and have been to Grano 4 times. We’ve enjoyed each sitting thoroughly. Three generation, our party of 7, last Saturday - the food, staff and wine were super. Fresh ingredients and helpful staff.
We hope to see new items on the menu so we can continue to try new things. Keep up the good work with simple yet interesting honest food coz you do it very well.
