This cozy restaurant is a pasta lover's dream! I live nearby (fortunate and dangerous at the same time) but it's worth traveling down to it! Fresh pasta, quality ingredients, attentive staff and a great selection of wine. Gastronomy enthusiasts will understand Grano is about a near-authentic experience in Italian southern cuisine, where the dishes speak for themselves.

Very friendly staff . Food from specific region of southern Italy , to the extent that they didn’t have Balsamico for the bread/ salad as it’s from the North 😂. We really enjoyed our food and wine there after a movie in the Lighthouse Cinema . I would have liked a small Moretti beer on arrival but there is no beer available ,only wine .Very reasonably priced considering it has a Michelin award . Will be going back for sure .

Our booking was for 7pm. We felt a bit rushed from the moment we sat down. Nibbles, starter and mains were served in quick succession. No break, but we took our time as we like to eat & chat with no pressure on a night out. Food was lovely - though portions were small. Two of our party had the vegan options, which are limited, but adequate. Sadly there is no vegan desert. Wine was nice, though the Prosecco to start was served in a regular wine glass. We had a lovely evening, but feeling rushed for the first hour did take away from the enjoyment.

It was such a fantastic meal. The food was exceptionally good. Very simple and delicious. The waiters were so friendly and accommodating, nothing was a problem. If I had to find one thing, I’d say the wine is overpriced for the quality.
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a lovely authentic Italian meal.

Second time in Grano, thoroughly enjoyed the starters and desserts but the main courses aren't amazing. I wish there was a mushroom risotto or another less meaty/fishy main course!
It's such a lovely restuarant but I find the choice in Etto much better.

The food here is 5/5. Outstanding. However, the premises is too small and cramped. I will come back but I would hesitate to recommend it based on the size of the restaurant. You feel like you can’t have privacy and that you are hearing other people’s conversations. I know this is a common problem with small restaurants in Dublin in general, but it would influence my decision to go back there or not. Again, this is my only fault with the restaurant. The parmigiana was beautiful.

We had a great evening in Grano. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table straight away. The restaurant was really nicely decorated for Christmas.
We were quite hungry and so were delighted when our orders for nibbles were taken and brought to the table quickly. Everything from nibbles through starters, mains and desserts was delicious.
We really enjoyed the evening and will certainly be back.

I'd wanted to try Grano for a very long time. Since it opened. And i finally had an opportunity over the Christmas period to visit. I had high expectations and was very excited to try the food in particular. The staff are incredibly nice. Very knowledgeable of their offering and friendly. The early bird offer is fantastic value but i found if ordering a la carte it can be a bit on the expensive side. The portions are quite small and lacking a little something. Members of my dining party were also frustrated that no soft drinks or beer was available. Only wine, juice or water. That being said, the food was tasty and we had a lovely evening. But my tummy wasn't satisfied and craved something more. The ambiance, was interesting. We were shoved down the back beside the toilet and payment area and phone, which rang constantly during our visit. We felt cramped with 6 of us seated at a table that should never have more than 4 at it. It is a very small restaurant and we understand the ability to facilitate larger groups can be difficult, but there were other parties of 6 sat at larger tables which looked a lot comfier than ours. Would I go back? Maybe. But it wasn't what I'd hoped for and was less enjoyable than i'd expected.

Wonderful Italian food bursting with the flavours of Calabria... everything we ate was exceptionally good - my personal favourite was the polpette with nduja and a smoked ricotta - wow, the depth of flavour in that dish alone was worth the visit! So many things on the menu that we didn’t get to try that we’re planning our return trip already! Buonissimo Ottimo Delizioso
