The service was impeccable. There was the friendly waiter who made jokes and he italian nonna who made you feel like a kid again. Food was amazing. We had the melted cheese soufflé (wow), escargot (which is weird because they are French and I loved them much more than the French place next door's (Montrachet) escargot), then the marinara which...

I wanted to share the experience of this great restaurant with my 81 year old father and his brother who lives in Tassie! It by far exceeded our expectations! From the moment we arrived we were treated like long lost family by the owner and all the lovely waiters. Everything about this restaurant is perfection - the atmosphere, the decor,... More

From the moment we walked through the door the staff were incredibly friendly, well and truely went out of their way to make us feel welcome and with greetings and discussion in Italian it added a feeling of authenticity. As other reviews have stated it is loud, but it is a fun and happy type of loud that comes from... More

With a noisy atmosphere of people though roughly enjoying their meals and delicious food my boyfriend and I loved Grappino!!! We can definitely recommend the cheese soufflé entree and pork wrapped in prosciutto main. If you like a busy place and there to enjoy delicious Italian, Grappino is a must!

Well it great to meet in Brisbane when your businesses take one to destinations across Italy. That was the plan and it turned out to a great meeting space-Grappino Trattoria. So an artist (Venice bound), a high-end accommodation expert (over 1000 fine citadels) and a wine and food tour guide gathered to chat about Italianicious things over great plates, actually... More

Ive been here every few month for many years and have consistently found it to be great food and great wine. The seafood spaghetti is divine as are the garlic escargot. The only down side is that it can get very noisy inside if the restaurant is full. So if you're looking for an intimate quiet dinner it may not... More

My family and I go her frequently. Although the food is expensive and Portion sizes very small, the quality of food is amazing and I am never disappointed. I love the lemon veal. Make sure you book in advance and try to get a table away from the kitchen as the place can get really loud! Waiters are great if... More

We've been to this restaurant a lot. It's normally very good although always far too noisy. The food is good Italian food and the staff are usually good although every now and again they do something annoying. This time it was after our meal - it hadn't been as good as usual. The waiter came round after we'd finished and... More
