You know the big problem with all the new restaurants? They confuse noise with atmosphere. There are lots of times, like lunch yesterday, when you actually want to hear what your dining companion is saying and be able to talk without being overheard. GF does all this and more. It is still the best room in Australia and one of the best in the world. You feel like you are in an exclusive private Italian club with wonderful no attitude service, great food and you aren't surrounded by lots of loud people. This really is heaven.....or maybe better!

My husband and I dined at Grossi Florentino upstairs last night and were blown away by our incredible dining experience.
The food was astonishing, the service impeccable, and the ambiance was Melbourne at its best. The restaurant is known as a Melbourne institution and now having experienced it, I now know why. The dining area is beautiful and we were also treated to a quick visit to the kitchen to meet Guy Grossi himself who was completely charming and friendly.
WOW. We had a degustation menu with matching wines. The wines were unusual and perfectly matched with each course. Each course was a work of art in its presentation and absolutely delicious. I recommend going to this restaurant to all travellers and indeed to all Melbournians to experience the richness that is truly Melbourne at its finest.

We had dinner at The Grill at Grossi on a freezing Friday night. Stepping inside, the place was warm and bustling. From the start, the service was fantastic... Professional & helpful but not snooty or stuck up. The food was very very good, Italian trattoria style. A bit pricey for what it is, but still thoroughly recommended.

Went here with friends and it was atmospheric but go to the fine dining upstairs which is repuited as one of Australia's best.
The bistro isn't as pricey but perhaps that's reflected in the food. It was nice but not memorable.
