As college students in the early 90's, this became our favorite place to eat, it continued to be our go to spot for birthdays, anniversaries, and date night for YEARS (20+). However, life gets busier and it had been a year since we'd last been in. When we ventured in for dinner last month, we were very saddened to find... More

The menu was varied and food good. The lack of good customer service made me rate this as an average. Service was slow and waitress was less than attentive. If I return to Lincoln, I may not visit this restaurant again as there are other fine places to eat.

Used to be a favorite for us. However, hadn't been back in awhile and when we went the other day it was a bit sad. The place used to have a great atmosphere. It is now run down, and a bit dirty. Looks line someone came in and removed all of the decorations and left a bare bones building. The... More

What a refreshing salad and you can have as much as you want...along with warm bread...kept warm on metal trays over a candle....yum and yum. There are lots of delicious choices for entrees here as well. Monday evenings kids eat free...so that is nice, too. Try it, you will like it.

This is one of my favorite Italian places in Lincoln. The unlimited bread and salad are nice starts for a dinner. For an appetizer, their fried mozzarella is the best! As an entree, I really like their penne gorgonzola or fettucine alfredo. I have heard some of the other entrees are not as good and the service is kind of... More

This is a great place for a good atmosphere. Be careful you get unlimited bread and sauce and you might fill up before your food arrives. (Done that more than once) The kids enjoyed the food as well.

This was a bit of a disappointment since my wife and I love Italian food. We had been to a few other italian restaurants in town and had great experiences but this one was not quite as good. The restaurant is very nice and relaxing. It is well set up. The food however was similar to eating fast food, but... More

My wife and I stopped in here to try it out. After all, from the street the place looks halfway inviting. Upon stepping into the lobby, we were immediately hit by a musty odor. We both commented to each other but let them seat us anyway. As we were ushered to a booth, we noted that the place is dimly... More

We hosted our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at Grisanti's in Lincoln, Ne. The staff was very accommodating to us in making our reservations and assisting us in picking out the menu. On the night of the dinner the wait staff did an excellent job in serving all 34 of us in a timely manner. This was an excellent experience for... More

My family and I have been to Grisanti's dozens of times and we have always been satisfied. The top 10 pizza is delicious and one of my favorites. I also enjoy the "Taste of Italy" which is a combo plate of 3 of their primary items. For lunches there, I normally have the soup and salad. This is not canned... More
