Best tiramisu in the world - yes it's true

From the street, I stepped down into the dining room. The tables were close together and the waiters were busily tending to patrons. I was seated soon after at a table for two along the wall opposite the open kitchen - presumably, the grill. I ordered an Aperol spritz for apertivo to... read more

I'm a bit of a picky eater however there are restaurants where you can try something a little different and Grossi is definitely one of those. There are plenty of options on the menu for all tastes and the pork skewer was delicious. The service is also fantastic - the staff are very attentive! This is a place that is... More

Booked this restaurant for a special birthday occasion on Grossi Florentino reputation at The Grill . The staff and atmosphere was lovely and that's were it stopped. I had the baked clams; dry and ordinary $32 and then the La Fiorentina steak $52 - sound impressive. NO, a T bone steak with a small red cabbage vinaigrette; no Jus, sauce... More

It was our 11th anniversary and we wanted to enjoy the romance. Alas -Not possible on a busy Saturday night. It was so noisy! Lots of staff around but hard to get their eye at first. Then Lucy appeared and everything was made right! We enjoyed the amuse bouche to start. Sadly the green risotto dish was just aweful but... More

While we were in Melbourne for the GP we tried to go here for dinner - The Grill was booked out, but we were able to sit at one of the tables out on the pavement, and this was just as a good an option (all the benefits of a great restaurant without the noise and heat of being inside).... More

From the decor to the service to the food - ah the food - this is one classic Parisian end of Collins St Melbourne experience. If you're visiting Melbourne then feel like a local by coming here, and if you're a local then isn't this why you live in Melbourne. I can't say much more than I wanted to come... More

We were expecting more from this experience. The place was busy and the atmosphere good. The starters were cold. The black pudding was too soft in texture and had almost no taste. The veal was greasy, but the steak acceptable and the pork kebab nicely flavoured. My constant complaint with these places is for the price why do we have... More
