We were not disappointed! All of our meals were delicious. The service was prompt friendly, and attentive. The waitress knowing we had a... More

There is something to be said that this restaurant expanded and still fills up all the time. The location is a little quirky, but everything else is just superb. If you go early for drinks at the bar, sometimes that can be difficult, so be ready for that. Otherwise, this is a great Italian restaurant with a great wine list... More

It's elegantly appointed, with good service. The food is tasty, but heavy, with few lighter choices, and almost nothing interesting that isn't doused in sauce.

We had our a rehearsal dinner here for our daughter's wedding and have been back since with 2 or 4 in our party. Every time the food and the service have been great. Live jazz on the Friday night of the rehearsal dinner was an extra added bonus.

We went to Grappa's this past weekend with friends and have been there before, with great results. Unfortunately, something fell apart when it came to our servers, and the more we inquired the worse we were treated - including the manager. Here's the backstory to our visit: We had reservations for 5:00 and were about the first to be seated.... More

Last night was the bachelor's party for my best friend getting married next week. He's a huge foodie, but also notoriously difficult to please with respect to restaurants. I'm a regular here at Grappa 72 and knew I wouldn't be let down, so I booked us our table and hoped for the best. They knocked it out of the park... More

We ate at Grappa recently. The prices were reasonable but the food was nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing seemed to stand out about this place. Not the ambiance, there service or the food.
