Il Grapollo congrats on 5 yrs of fine service

Food always great, service always great, good place to go to for a wonderful night.... We have been here many times and never been disappointed. When you arrive you feel like they are old friends.

We went as a group of 8 for a family lunch. We had the starters first (garlic bread and bruschettas) which were really big and yummy. Then we had to wait quite a while for the mains (more than 20 minutes) but it was fine, because you want to digest the food first. The mains were all excellent. The deserts... More

This little restaurant is tucked away in a quiet location in Rozelle and we found the whole lunch fantastic. Every meal we ordered from entrée to dessert was full of flavour and presented perfectly. The added character of the Italian staff added to a true Italian experience. The zucchini flowers stuffed with crab and prawns is really worth a try... More

Tucked away in the back streets of Rozelle is this gem of a restaurant, well known by the locals. Expect fresh seafood, the best stuffed zucchini flowers on the planet, and true Italian service. We take every visitor, & we have never been disappointed. Yes, parking can be a problem, but it is everywhere on the peninsula, & there is... More

The food was good but they have the price vs. portion size wrong. My main issue was with the veal - 3 small escalopes and 3 pieces of broccolini for $28 is a bit steep. The fillet steak was better value at $34 as there were more vegetables. The meagre portions gnocchi and insalata caprese were delicious, but both needed... More

I went there for Mother's day and the food was delicious, we had pizza, ravioli and the seafood puttanesca and everything was spot on. I will come back.

my husband and I went here for dinner on a Friday night as we live in the area and had heard really positive things about this little hidden restaurant. Despite being away from the bustle of darling street it is a restaurant that has a lovely atmosphere and great service. The real standout though is the food. It is really... More

Superb food, friendly staff, and a nice and spacious restaurant. The only problem is the lack of parking in the vicinity. Defo worth a visit!

What a great pleasure to eat at an Italian restaurant which is not over the top with heavy sauces. Il Grappolo serves authentic, high quality Italian food that is subtle and flavorsome. Tonight there were three specials for each course in addition to the usual menu. The four of us shared a Prawn Hot Pot, a Bruschetta and two stuffed... More

I have walked past this place for months and have not given it a second thought. We've been twice now - rocked on in shorts on a Friday night after work...everyone else was a bit more dressy but still felt comfortable and welcomed. Second time I took my parents. the Food is sublime. good honest food cooked spectacularly well. I... More
