The food at Grossi is certainly of high standard as are the staff. Our waiter James was very attentive, knew the menus and wine list very well and nothing was too much trouble. I had the pork belly which, although not identified as such on the menu, was very spicy and rather too hot for me. James suggested trying a salad with it which did tone it down and made it very enjoyable. Yes I was charged for the salad, but not full price. Knowing that this would tone down the spice was indeed valuable indicating the quality of staff at this restaurant. My companions said the crème Brule was the best they had ever eaten, and believe me they have tried them all! Definitely worth a visit if you are in Melbourne, try the Prosecco as an aperitif, delicious.

Dined in the grill last night as a group of 8 women, the waitress was very officious and kept telling us that the entree size pasta was very small and we needed to order main course. We received a grunt from her when we ordered tap water.
It took nearly an hour to get drinks
The vegetarian pasta special was very bland, the salad was over salted. The pasta with spicy wild boar ragu was fantastic, as was the calamari.
Very noisy and crowded.
To be fair we did get complimentary dessert when we advised them of our thoughts.
We will be talking about it for a long time but won't be going back

Four of us experienced what must be the best Italian dining pleasures in Melbourne. Everything was first class, the venue, menu, service and of course the food. High recommend.

Before we watched the entertaining "Jersey Boys" show we had dinner at the Master Chef Grossi's restaurant of Melbourne!! Very busy but we received attentive service throughout our evening. Loved my dish of oysters! I did spot Chef Grossi as well! And I would definitely recommend anyone going to the Princess Theatre to dine at the Grossi beforehand!

While recently in Melbourne we were fortunate to dine at the Grossi Grill.
From the time we entered to when we left, the service of the staff, especially our waiter was exceptional.
While attentive and very knowledgeable, he was also very friendly, especially when it came to discussions on football.
The food and wine selection is a must for anyone who is not a local, to enjoy and my fillet was cooked and served to perfection.
Though extremely crowded on the Friday night and seated adjacent to the kitchen, we were still able to converse and still enjoy the ambience of this superb restaurant.
