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

We had a Friday lunch at Grisanti's and that will be the last time. I noticed an odor when we arrived, but didn't think much about it until we were seated. The booth had torn fabric that I'm sure was held together by dirt. I didn't want to take my coat off or lean against the back of the booth.... More

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Lincoln. They've done it right for decades. My go to is the lasagna, and no one can ever eat enough of their delicious garlic bread that they bring out warm. If you're in the mood for a cocktail, I highly recommend their peach bellini. It's delicious.

If nothing else just go for their never ending bread & salad! Oh & maybe the tiramisu for a treat. Service has always been great and feels more local than the Olive Garden!
