The extensive menu is full of options- there is absolutely something divine for any taste. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The decor is lovely. On a recent Friday night the live music was lovely. But the true attraction here is just how delicious everything is! You will savor every bite!

Excellent food at a fair price. I like sitting at the bar. Brian the bartender is an great conversationalist and is very knowledgeable about wines and whiskeys.

Where to begin? This place is like stepping into the scene of an Italian movie. They have live music playing while you are you dining. It adds to the fun without dominating the ambience. The food is outstanding. The service is impeccable. Once you've been there a couple times it's like you're part of the family when you walk in.... More

Finally decided to visit this restaurant after a few recommendations from friends. Although the food took some time it was well worth the wait! The Vitello 72 I ordered and the pasta special my husband had were delicious (even for lunch the next day!) The service was also amazing! Our waitress Marissa could not have been better! She really went... More

Arrived early on a Saturday night without reservations. Restaurant almost empty. Told that there was no availability until 8. As we turned to leave she said we could sit at a high top table by the bar. Overheard two other parties without reservations get tables. We left over an hour later and it was still almost empty.

Had an excellent meal with Colleagues on 11/13/16. Great service and the chef came out and sat with us at random thinking we were with another group. The atmosphere is good also.

We were looking for a restaurant that had easy access to I-90, so glad we found Grappa '72! Very tastefully decorated, our server was very personable and knowledgeable about the menu. The freshest salad I've ever had, I mean I got excited about the salad, that's how good it was! Overall an awesome meal in nice surroundings at reasonable prices.... More
