The Grill at Grossi Florentino is situated on the ground floor of our two-storey venue. This is the epitome of sophisticated, casual dining the Tuscan way. Simple food that’s based on fresh local and premium imported ingredients with the emphasis on seasonality, and home or artisan grown produce.

“In my earliest memories of childhood I can see the kitchen, a place where all would come, filled with these familiar smells, and the laughter of people that love each other and with the anticipation of flavours to come”. ?Guy Grossi

The Grill is the embodiment of this, personal service and the buzz of the open kitchen creating a magnificent atmosphere. One that is centred around ‘La Griglia’, where the Grill derives its name, is always full of the finest aged meats sourced from various producers, and the constant quest for the best quality ingredients. This is a fundamental of our philosophy. The Grill is truly an extension of the Italian kitchen’s soul.

    We came for an afterwork meeting and were not aware that there was a requirement to order at least 2 courses - so were (a little confused and) apologetic when we advised the maitre d' that our shared snacks had been adequate. It could be stated at the time of booking that this is a preference with attending the Grill for food, drink and meeting up with friends and colleagues. The food that we ate was delicious.

    I am always impressed when a [institution] restaurant is able to maintain it's high quality standards and exceed expectations to continue to rank as one of Melbourne's best for close to 100years! Magnificent

    The food was outstanding but the three different waiters that we had told us three different stories about the two course, three course set menu options and two didn't tell us about the specials. It was a little confusing but the third waiter clearly more experienced clarified in the end.

    Food was great but the service felt a little rushed and at times frantic. This in turn would not make the customer feel too relaxed thru the meal. Shame really as the food was good.

    A restaurant with a lot of potential, but was let down by service. Very slow service (waiting >30mins to order a drink and receive menus). Appetisers were incorrect, no apology or update on correct order received - instead, we had our meals staggered as they corrected it. 3 steaks ordered and non cooked as requested, waitstaff mixed them up. Food was tasty, however will not rush back.

    Limited menu, my main (chicken) was so salty it was almost inedible. The service was excellent, but the food was ordinary and overpriced for the quantity and quality. I'll stick to our great suburban restaurants in future.

    We hadn't been to the Florentino Grill for quite a while, and after this visit, we must surely question ourselves, as to "why?" The warm welcome, professional friendly service and amazing food - how can a T-Bone steak be so good? - made for a wonderful evening! A lovely well priced wine rounded off the dinner nicely! Mohammed and Davide looked after us so well that we can't wait to go back! Thanks to all - a great way to ease back into going out, in our amazing city!

    Was wonderful to share in the excitement of staff on reopening and enjoy being back at our favourite restaurant. Food as always was fantastic including the complimentary sourdough bread. The special ravioli with ragu filling and sage butter Parmesan sauce magically melted in our mouths. Bellissimo.

    After a long time not being able to visit Grossi Grill it was a delicious treat to be able to come back and celebrate my birthday and the quality of the food was, as always, nothing short of sensational. Perfect pasta and make sure you finish with the Grossi specialty, Tiramisu! And to top things off Guy himself was on premise during our seating.
