Went here for my partner's birthday for lunch last March. The head waiter asked us to wait while he decided which table to seat us at. At that moment the owner, Guy Grossi appeared and led us immediately to a table while lightly reprimanding the waiter. He also took my partners coat. We ordered a 5 course degustation with matching wines. This guy (no pun intended) knows how to treat his customers and how to prepare wonderful food. Absolutely loved it. Will definitely be back to sample the evening menu sometime. Thank you Guy for a wonderful dining experience.

Atmosphere is not too great, rather loud. As with many Restaurants in Melbourne, you don't get value for money (this is Australia for you). It is a nice Restaurant but not overly special. Nothing to complain about the food and the wait staff though. Staff knew not only what they were talking about, they were also very friendly and welcoming indeed.

Very disapointed in the food quality. For such a high profile venue that is supposed to be on ethe best in Melbourne it fell well below my expectations.

No-one could fault the ambience of Gross Florentino, or fail to notice the great service. Whether outside on the pavement enjoying a pre-lunch mineral; water, or inside the grill for a light lunch, the service was attentive without being obsequious, friendly without being familiar, professionally competent without being officious. Full marks !
The wine list is huge, but with some reasonable wines by the glass, the food is ( mainly) traditional Italian, and not too adventurous, perfect for a couple of business guests. Noise levels ( in the Grill), are high, making conversation difficult, but reasonably confidential as well.
