We made reservations and asked to be near the jazz band as it was a friend playing. They seated us at a table right in front - perfect. All 4 of us loved our dinners and wine. All said, a great night out.

My husband and I tried Grappa 72 for the first time tonight and were very pleased with our dining experience. The food was great and the wait staff was extremely attentive. We did not have a reservation, but luckily they fit us in!

there were six of us for a holiday lunch, as we work nearby. We ordered two appetizers, a few had cocktails. in a nutshell: delicious food, good service, interesting menu. Yes, certainly there are cheaper options around but there were no complaints from among any in our party. As a vegetarian, I was happy to see numerous choices, including one... More

We made a reservation for the $50 dinner for 2 deal in Clippers magazine. You have to reserve before 5:30 or after 8:30 which was not a problem for us early diners. There were plenty of tables at 5 PM on a Friday night in the space formerly occupied by Carmine's. Our friendly waitress explained the specials but there were... More

Incredible food, not your run of the mill Italian fare. Fun atmosphere with personalized service. You usually have to go to a big city and pay triple the prices for this kind of experience.

Very good dinner. We had a coupon for dinner for two including wine, appetizer, entree and dessert. The house selection wines were very good. Calamari appetizer was lightly battered, cooked perfectly accompanied by a slightly spicy marinara sauce. One portion was more than ample for two. Dinners were delicious, with plenty to take home. Similarly, the tiramisu was very good... More

Came here on a whim. The atmosphere is really nice, it will make a great date spot. There is a live band playing soft music. Between the three of us we all enjoyed our meals. The service was a little slow and it took forever to get out food. Bottom line I'd come back.

After reading great reviews about this place for years, we went recently for my birthday. The place was crowded, even at 6PM, a great sign. The host told us our table wasn't ready when we arrived, but quickly got us seated. Unfortunately, it was in a back dining room that was not really crowded; yet, we were stuffed into a... More
