We went to Tlhe Grill on Saturday night prior to attending Les Mis for the pre - theatre dinner. Service is strictly 5:30-700. It costs 40 for 2 courses or 50 for 3 courses included is a glass of house wine and coffee. We were in and out within the designated time. There were 3 choices for each course. The... 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

We went to the Grossi Florentino on Saturday (12th July) and I have to say I was a little bit disappointed. Having tried Grossi Grill and loved it, my expectation of Florentino were high.

They called this restaurant an institute, and I have to say it is indeed! The food, wine and service was out of this world. We ate at the Wynn Room which was just something else, the restaurant manager was kind enough to show me the main dinning room and where they have painting going back to the early 30’s and... More

I took my best friend to Grossi Florentino's "Grill" restaurant for her birthday this year. She is a massive Guy Grossi fan, and I am a massive delicious food fan, so it was a great choice! The setting was lovely, waiters attentive and well dressed and the food is cooked within sight, which adds some drama and intrigue to the... More

$40 for a two course lunch with wine and coffee at one of the best restaurants in Melbourne has got to be one of the best value meals in the city.
