Our server was great, food not my normal choice. I was there for lunch with a friend who suggested the location. We ordered from the appetizer menu a cheese platter to share, and then meatballs for our meals. I knew I was in trouble when a Broccoli dish was the SPECIAL.

OVERPRICED, small servings, limited menu, lackluster taste for most items. I guess the trendy "buy local, in season" influences some people's reviews, but I was very disappointed in Grana after the glowing reviews posted by others. The "cafeteria chic" furnishings, noisiness of room, communal dining makes it feel like McDonalds. An appetizer of meatballs ($12) consisted of four 1 1/2"... More

This could be such a nice place with their patio, but their poor service ruined my visit. I will never go back.

We stopped in for an early dinner with our son. The server was efficient and friendly. The menu was nice and different. I had the wedge salad snd added chicken. It was delectable! My son had the same but without the chicken. I would go back!

This place has it all. From the service to the ambiance to the wine list to the quality in the ingredients and the flavors. It is by far our favorite spot in Chico, love the location and outdoor patio as well.

This was by far the best meal I had while in Chico. A salad, glass of wine and pizza was $50 though so be prepared. However, it was fantastic and well worth it.

Family of 5 (3 teens) sat outside after a Thursday night market. So many great, local, organic and tasty apps..... it was almost difficult to think about the entrees... but we did.

We had a soup and salad at Grana. The salad was a warm wheat berry grain salad with arugula and had too much vinegar in it unfortunately and also too many wheat berries. The salad lacked a good balance in flavoring a unfortunately. I have eaten at Grana before and enjoyed the regular leafy green salad and pizza, and that... More

This is a hipster type spot with an interesting menu. We had the 20 mile plate, a couple of the flat breads The 20 mile plate was simple, but terrific-quality ingredients, interesting combinations. More rosemary! Good wine, terrific orange bread pudding which was recommended by our attentive server. The service was the star......attentive but not overly so. We never wanted... More

A friend introduced me to Grana. I will be eternally grateful. We shared a special for the day. A delicious artichoke half. The highlight though was the Green Pizza. Described on the menu as: Crescenza, roasted broccoli rabe, garlic, chili flake, olive oil, lemon, pecorino It was delicious. One of the best pizzas I have ever eaten. The outdoor patio... More
