I lived in Naples for four years and I can say this is good authentic Italian. Nice ambience...romantic tables, Italian opera music. Meals come with soup and Salad...both were super tasty. Janey our waitress was awesome. Stuffed mushrooms were very good. I had gnocchi....out of this world! A+++

Great food- seafood/linguine and chicken picatta melt in your mouth! Local mom/pop in business for 31 yrs! Wonderful atmosphere and we loved our meal. Owner stopped and visited w/ us for several minutes which is something we will remember. Don't pass them, they are well worth the visit and their prices are very good, portions more than enough to take... More

This is family owned and run, Frank Grimo makes all the food. His soup is great and for the money is a good dining experience. We love the eggplant and his crab cakes are to die for.

We visited last year and weren't impressed. Tried again and still weren't impressed. Salad had discolored lettuce that had a funny taste. The soup was thick and not very good. My small bowl had a carrot in it the size of my wrist. My son said the osso buco wasn't very good. My husband liked his pasta but he would... More

Surprising good Italian food. Good selection of food and wine. We went on a Friday evening and the place was hopping.

We visited with friends. Immediate service. Nice wine selection within normal budget. We ordered appetizers that were very good as we're the mains. I really have to praise the prices. In this vacation area many restaurants go wild on prices. Not here. Really good value. Lots of elderly patrons which shows value in locally known.

We were told by Theresa at the Poncha Lodge that Grimos was a wonderful restaurant. We were not disappointed! Service was great, the food was excellent. We will definitely return.

The waitress was so kind and attentive. Best service. The wine is delicious too as well as the food. Would recommend this place for... More

This little gem is off the beaten path but oh my gosh is it good. The service was so friendly and quick. We ordered everything off the menu and devoured all of it. The pasta, the prime rib and the soups and salads are so good. They have several kinds of homemade dressings and the vegetable soup is delicious!!! This... More

There's a good reason that there's so many cars in the parking lot. Excellent food for a fair price. All dinners come with homemade soup and salad with homemade dressing. The entree portion size was large and very well made. I had the spaghetti and it was fabulous. My husband had the chicken parmesan and it was cooked to perfection.... More
