Nice restaurant, good food within walking distance of downtown Santa Ynez. One of our favorites. Staff is always very friendly.

There are so many good restaurants in Santa Ynez and Los Olivos, Grappolo is at the bottom of the list. Years ago it was one of the best, - For the money, there are other choices that are much better quality. Also the tables on top of each other don't allow a private conversation. There was a time they were the only restaurant in Santa Ynez, now there is Brothers, Carlitos and Santa Ynez Kitchen. The service started going down hill and so did the food, sorry to say this but the last meal there was the last time we dined there due to the service and the food.

We stopped to visit friends who had just moved to Santa Ynez and they suggested the restaurant for dinner. Unfortunately we were seated in their overflow or large party seating area so we didn't get to enjoy the ambience or the weather from our private dining room. The food was incredible - the bruschetta was prepared on a pita so it was good in size and perfect for 4 adults. I was debating between two items and ordered the tortellini which was simply perfect. You know when your meal is so good that you eat faster so you won't be too full to not finish it?? Uhhh, well, maybe that's just me but I made sure every bite of that dish was shoveled into my mouth. Amazing!!

Local neighborhood restaurant with good variety and fresh ingredients. Reasonably priced. Need reservations for weekends and big parties.

Very romantic atmosphere for a
coupler. Little Italian restaurant. Loved it so much for dinner that we went back the next day for lunch! Spaghetti alla carbonara - delicious. Sea bass with risotto - delicious. Ciabatta bread - amazing! This restaurant will not disappoint!
