My wife and I went to Grossi Florentino for my birthday, I had never been but my wife had on a couple occasions, we ate in the grill not upstairs. We started with the oysters, they were very fresh and the chardonnay vinegar dressing was sensational. The we made our way through a couple of entrees sharing each dish, Crochette... More

A group of us went for a long awaited catch up for the late session at the grill. Starters were amazing oysters but unfortunately the mains were disappointing. Heavy meat filled plates with not much else. If you wanted any greens you had to order it. We caught site of the man himself at the counter in his whites, but... More

Turned up without a reservation (not a good idea!!) during lunchtime on a Saturday. Been here before and the same high standards are obvious. Not cheap but I left feeling as if I got value for my money.

I was very apprehensive about dining here due to looking at the menu online and being a rather unadventurous diner and a coeliac. I almost cancelled on my friend who organised it using the dreadful weather as my excuse! I am so glad I didn't! From the minute we walked in the door I was impressed. The first question we... More

This is a very old favorite of ours for special family occasions, but we may give it a miss next time. Service is as good as the best you will get anywhere in the world and the ambiance in the upstairs room reeks of history and quality, and timeless class. But the Italian food is not exceptional in any sense... More

Recently had dinner with my wife and another couple, and I have to say from the start that the service was beyond par!! Excellent knowledge of the food and wines, very attentive table staff and always there to move chairs, re-roll napkins etc. We were in the upstairs space, a beautifully appointed restaurant to have dinner. The meal was very... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the grill. From the time you walk in the door, you are almost treated like royalty. The waiters are extremely helpful and respectful. The wine list is extensive and diverse. The food is superb! Would highly recommend!

We often frequent Grossing downstairs which is good value for money if you're looking for great service and delicious Italian food. Their matinee lunch offers are terrific. However, upstairs is a real treat! We recently celebrated our anniversary at Grossing and our meal and experience were perfect. We mentioned our 30 year anniversary at time of booking. The first thing... More
