“Consistent food, good value, weak atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Reliable and consistent home made Italian food that is reasonably priced. Hard to go wrong for the money but not much atmosphere in this hotel based restaurant.

Delicious food. We ate here with a large group, and the service was great. Ask for Nelson - super waiter

“Great service, excellent food, convenient location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

As my office is immediately around the corner from this restaurant, I come here often - at least once a week. The service is impeccable, the food is great and it is priced appropriately. They have a wonderful selection of wines both by the bottle and by the glass and it is one of the few nicer restaurants in Memphis that have free WiFi (just ask the hotel desk clerk for the access code). This is important to me as a business owner and since I have my own consulting firm, I simply won't frequent a restaurant during the work day that doesn't have this capability. I am a light eater, and the entree portions are very large, so I've never experienced an appetizer or dessert. However, given the number of times that I have eaten there, I have probably ordered everything on the menu at least once and have never been disappointed.

“Consistent food and service, convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

This restaurant is located inside Embassy Suites hotel in east Memphis. I have dined here several times a year for the past 10+ years. The food is always good. From appetizers to dessert, you cannot go wrong here! My children love it and are made to feel welcome. Don't fill up and skip dessert. Grisanti's desserts are made in house and are all delicious. Tiramisu is my favorite.

If you are lucky enough to meet the owner, Frank Grisanti, you will see why this restaurant is top notch!!
