From the moment my husband and I were greeted at the door we enjoyed the experience of dining at Grossi Florentino immensely. We chose to eat in the Grill downstairs and although our table was in the aisle opposite the kitchen and the pass (we did make a late booking) we didn't find it too distracting as the whole restaurant just buzzes.
Our waiter was fantastic - attentive, making menu suggestions, just friendly enough and offered superlative service (and his football team beat the Swans the next night!!). The menu offered a myriad of choices enough to satisfy anyone. The timing of the food delivery to our table was excellent and the wine choices were very good.
Price wise it is expensive (food and wine) but then you do go to venues such as this as much for the experience as anything else. We had a great meal and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Melbourne.
