Reservations seem required here, because it's relatively small and the food is excellent. The service was attentive and friendly. The menu was tight but everything on it was enticing. It is a good place for a date, or for friends that want to get together for a special occasion. Everything down to the complimentary olive oil and bread was great.

Went with my family. Service welcoming, bubbly, friendly and very helpful. The food was superb - so very tasty.
Between the 5 of us we tried most things on the menu and one dish was better than the next. Felt like we were in Italy.
Wonderful experience. Definitely going back!

This is a lovely little restaurant in trendy Stoneybatter. The food is enjoyable and you can see pasta being freshly made in front of your eyes. That’s an enjoyable part of the occasion.
Just a little piece of advice, if like me you have an intolerance for chillis be careful. They are in some of the dishes without being stated on the menu card. I got the very nice waiter to describe each dish in detail to ensure I didn’t get something that was too hot and spicy.

Great service, great vibe and AMAZING food. The spreadable nduja, artichokes and meatball starters were all fantastic. And then came the best pasta in Dublin. All handmade and all delicious.

Highly recommend. Thanks, Grano!!

I felt like I was in Italy a number of times. The staff have a lovely easy nature as they banter amongst themselves and with guests. We watched fresh pasta being made next to us that beat any cooking class.

Italian restaurants generally tend to be "more of the same" in Ireland anyway. Until Grano arrived on the scene. Typical Italian regarding atmosphere- noisy,bustling and packed with families. Staff really friendly as well as being efficient.
Started with Sardella di Crucolli, a spicy fish paste known as "caviar of the poor". Bursting with flavour with the spice just right. Next was Capocollo di Maiale Nero e burrata- essentially a luscious combination of black pig and burrata cheese.
For main, Spaghettoni - home made of course - with sausage, black truffle and Parmesan cheese. This was one of those memorable dishes that lingers on the palate for a long time. Perfectly sensible wine selection of three whites and three reds by the glass. However, the range by the bottle is high quality in range and region. Second visit to Grano and most definitely not the last.
