We have dined at Grissano's about 6 or 7 times now and have never once been disappointed. It is an intimate traditional style Italian restaurant with first rate food and service. My wife and I were first brought to it by friends over a year ago. Our initial introduction was very late one sunday night when most restaurants would have... More

Been going to resturants in the Algarve for more than twenty years but the meal we had a few days ago with six friends was fantastic. Not only was the food the best but the service and the whole experience was well worth a visit. Please go.

The service by the chef's co-owners, his Portuguese fiancé and Italian father, was absolutely charming. We were made to feel special from the moment we walked in. Proper Italian food with Italian awards... More

Fantastic restaurant to eat real Italian food. With real Italian ingredients. The carpaccio and burratta that we had were fabulous. The pasta with meat and the past with truffle was great too. Plus, fantastic Italian wine! A must!

This is a gorgeous small family run Italian. The good is fantastic made special with the slightly eccentric owner who loves his restaurant. The son is the chef who trained abroad and who is passionate and caring about what he serves to diners. The veal Milanese is just fabulous. Our sons just love the place. A great change from the...
