This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants I'm NJ. I stumbled on it during a business trip. Every time I come to this part of Jersey, I find a way to have meal here. The whole staff is extremely friendly too.

My best meals have been when we special order something like mussels in white wine sauce or order a daily special. I've been going... More

EWverything on the menu is prepared to perfection. The Waite staff is very knowledgable. Because the restaurant is rather small, it can get a little noisey. A very minor inconvenience.

Very highly rated, but our visit did not live up to expectations for two of four diners. One main course was inedible and the other, a paperdelle with mushrooms, was overcooked. The other two main dishes, however, were well received.

Real family atmosphere. Able to handle large family groups (we were 6, and there was a group of 15 seated comfortably) with great food, solid service, and a reasonably steep tab. Wonderful.

We 've been so looking forward to have diner at grissini for months. We were so disappointed mostly by the place itself. The restaurant sitting is very weird it feels like a diner such an awkward concept Just 2 main rooms and the bar We were right behind the kitchen counter so between the noise and the smell of cooking...

First class place with fabulous service. Try the baked clams, they were out of this world. Great selection of classic Italian food.
