Bold southern flavours + interesting selection of wines. Very passionate & caring staff. Will definitely be going back to sample the rest of the menu.

We had a really nice dinner last time in Grano, when we have chosen from the a la carte menu. This time we had eaten from the early bird menu, which was not so great, portions were small, food is OK, but not that exceptional. Price seemed a bit high for this.

Over-hyped, over-priced totally average food served by stressed out, over-wrought staff.

Nice home made-style food, but nothing amazing. We had the early bird, so certainly was value for money. One member of staff was much friendlier than the other waitress. The wines were very nice.

Cannot fault anything about Grano. It’s beautiful, authentic, thoughtful Italian food and wine created lovingly, and served in a unobtrusive, charming way.

Everyone involved should be very proud of what they have created in Grano.

My first time to experience Grano and it was an absolute delight. The menu was sooo good it wa hard to narrow my selection. It was also a birthday celebration and the staff made the evening very memorable. I cannot wait to go back !

Overall gorgeous food. Not sure about the gluten-free pasta. Didn’t realize how much flavor the gluten gives to pasta.

Great food, a delicious primitivo from Puglia. Service was friendly and the chef provided a delicious bowl of pasta and parmesan for our 1yr old!
Worth the trek across the city.
My only feedback would be to get another high chair. There were 3 families needing a high chair in when we were there but only one available :)

First time in Grano having seen some excellent reviews and I was not disappointed. From the moment I entered the restaurant, the main man Roberto knew my name (first ever) and was extremely helpful in choosing the food and wine. The food is authentic Italian, so if this is what you want, Grano is a must! I'll definitely be back!

Lovely food and friendly staff. The pasta is fantastic and everything else was great as well. As someone who doesn't drink wine it would have been nice to have had the option of a beer (a nice Italian craft beer would be great) but the lack of it certainly didn't diminish my enjoyment of my meal.

I got the vegan option and it was a simple pasta with tomato sauce and basil, which I love, but this one was very plain in taste, which i was very surprised as I heard loads of good things about this restaurant. I may be that the rest of the main were better and not much effort in the vegan main

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.
