“Just okay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

After a very long day of traveling on the road (over 500 miles) I stopped here for what I thought would be a good dinner.

I ordered spaghetti & meatballs for dinner. Meatballs smelled good but tasted horrible! The spaghetti was okay, but I have had much better. The part that really got me was the fact they do not serve garlic bread with a spaghetti meal. Huh? Really?

The price was $15.99 which I expected, but the food taste and quality just wasn't there. It was very disappointing and not what my taste buds expected.

Service was great and location was convenient, but I would not this meal here again.

“Nice place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We found this place to have a quiet, relaxing atmosphere (no kids) with awesome service. While portions were okay sized, Grisanti's did lose a couple points for not including a side salad with their entree's. This location is tucked inside of Embassy Suites so, look for hotel rather tan a stand a lone spot.

“Stayed at Embassy - ate at Grisanti's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had dinner at Grisanti's which was excellent Italian food and great service. I did not like that you could not order food from the Embassy Manager's Reception area but the food did make up for this.

“Perfect date night restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Quietly tucked away in the Embassy Suites, this wonderful Memphis treasure always exceeds expectations. With pleasant ambience and low lighting, it is perfect for a relaxing dinner.

I recommend the Elfo special. It is a light meal contain fresh pasta, shrimp and mushrooms in an olive oil sauce. My wife had a sampler of school spaghetti, manicotti and spinach. It was her first time here and she said it was the best she has ever enjoyed.

I give Frank Grisanti's five stars!
