Lovely spot. Really nice, chilled out staff in a lovely space. The food was gorgeous and was cheaper than expected. I've already recommended it to my family and friends.

Friendly staff and fantastic food. Only downside was that the table we were sat at was beside the staff counter and kitchen. The space was quite tight and noisy. Thought we may have gotten a better table considering it was booked over a month beforehand. Besides that I couldn’t fault the place. Will definitely be back.

Heard so many good things about Grano and it did not disappoint. Food was great. Group of 5 all ordered different mains. The waiter explained all the choices. Tiramisu was to die for. And a shot of limoncello to cap it off. Can’t wait to return.

Lovely, authentic Italian restaurant. Good wine selection and excellently prepared food--not much to eat for vegetarians though.

Food and service was excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. We will certainly be back again. The only very minor drawback was that the restaurant was very warm. Otherwise two thumbs up.

Went with my husband for a meal in Grano & it was amazing! The menu isn't very big but there's enough choice for customers. Lovely small restaurant, food is absolutely amazing! We had meatballs to start, the best meatballs ever! Pasta was delicious & the Tiramsiu was up there with what you get in Italy.

Very reasonably priced & really delicious food. A little gem of a restaurant!

The best Italian restaurant you will eat in outside of Italy. Going here is like taking a vacation from the humdrum of your life and immersing yourself in a taste sensation. Get whatever they recommend. You won’t be disappointed. Great prices, great staff and great food.

An excellent real deal Italian. The early bird offers great bang for your buck; however, the a la carte menu is also very reasonable. The staff know what they are doing and are very pleasant.

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.

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 !

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 :)
