“Yum, delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

I've been here quite a few times, many times where i have organised dinner for international visitors for work functions but i also recommended it for my Sister In Laws small wedding. Everyone loves the food, it is not overpriced. The service is nice and the people who work there are friendly.

“Always wanted to go there, it lives up to its reputation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Went to Grossi Florentino last night to celebrate my husbands significant birthday! We have talked about going to this restaurant forever and never got around to it. We went with my in laws and had a memorable evening. The food was excellent, delicious and beautifully served. The wine list is extensive, and pricey but very good. The service was faultless: full of character, attentive but not intrusive.The dining room is beautiful, dominated by the large window onto the trees of Collins St. This is Melbourne at its very best. Its expensive and I would reserve going again to a special occasion but would go again. Thank you.

“Old World Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

My wife and I have dined at Grossi Florentino in the upstairs restaurant many times and it is one of our favorite restaurants in Melbourne, especially when looking for that old world traditional dining experience. With many of the newer top restaurants having a modern and more minimalistic decor the upstairs restaurant at Grossi has old style grandeur and ambiance particularly highlighted by the large painted murals on the walls. The food has always been a high standard with a leaning to the rustic style, and a great wine selection. It was dining here that we got a recommendation to visit the Piedmont region which we so enjoyed on our last trip to Europe. In the past couple of years we have also been to a couple of Grossi Florentino dining events as a part of the Melbourne Food and Wine festival. These have been great and well worth looking out for.

“Ticked off our bucket list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Yes it was a place i felt just needed to be ticked off. Service is great, while being modern and relaxed, not too over the top. Inside even though keeping it traditional it seems it could do with a bit of a modern update.

As for the food, it was good but did expect more. Entrees, mains and dessert were all pretty good. But the pasta dishes we had between entree and mains were average. I think they were the rabbit linguine and a lobster ravioli, just seemed bland and lacked something. All the food was very fresh.

Overall we can say we have been here and it was good, but at about $200 ea (included 1/2 botttle red) i would try elsewhere next time in Melbourne.
