All of us had great Apps and wonderful dinners They had a chicken dish with bone ons not those tasteless chicken cutlets that are often over cooked. Outstanding meal and excellent but not effusive The only thing I can complain about was that the specials were quoted with out prices. I hate that we had to ask for each dish.... More

I had the soft shell crab sauteed franciase on 5/6/15 for lunch and it was burned, black and awful. They served it to me with the sauce on the side. The crabs were black; was with my boss so I kept quiet BUT how could they even hand me a plate so awfully done? Yeah there are so few restaurants... More

Delicious food and hip vibe made dining at Grissini a delightful dinner. The menu is fully stocked with pasta, meats, and tasty appetizers, and is also complemented by a extended list of daily specials ... too long to remember, in fact! The restaurant graciously crammed our group of 9 into a corner round table. We began our meal nibbling on... More

The good: The food and drinks are great. You will leave completely satisfied. Grissini is the best Italian restaurant in Englewood Cliffs I have visited. The bad: It is expensive. The restaurant is relatively small so make sure you get a reservation if possible. Parking is valet only. Bottom line: I have been multiple times and will go back, but... More

Went for a Biz lunch. After looking at the Website, I was expecting a real dining experience. Though the food was well prepared and presented, and the service was good, it fell well short of "Spago of the East" as they boasted on their website. I had the pasta dish... Shrimp in cognac sauce. Quite good, but not exciting. Salads... More

Having driven by the restaurant for years without ever visiting, we finally went for a special Valentine's Day dinner. I expected a little more ambiance. There is an open kitchen with several tables across from the counter, We were lucky enough not to have to sit at one of those tables. If you are going to make reservations, ask that... More

Consistently delicious food. Classic Italian cuisine - brick oven pizzas- grilled seafood and meats. Creative pastas. Professional and attentive service.
