Grossi - Grill
“In my earliest memories of childhood I can see the kitchen, a place where all would come, filled with these familiar smells, and the laughter of people that love each other and with the anticipation of flavours to come”. ?Guy Grossi
The Grill is the embodiment of this, personal service and the buzz of the open kitchen creating a magnificent atmosphere. One that is centred around ‘La Griglia’, where the Grill derives its name, is always full of the finest aged meats sourced from various producers, and the constant quest for the best quality ingredients. This is a fundamental of our philosophy. The Grill is truly an extension of the Italian kitchen’s soul.
The service from the staff is what made us come back moment we dropped in with outbooking and staff looked after us amazingly and the food was to die for Service was 100% food was on point.
Through no fault of the restaurant, our reservation, and everyone else's was cancelled by Victorian Dictator, Denial Andrews, claiming it was necessary because of the Wuhan Flu Pandemic.
Remember this at the next State Election (If he hasn't suspended all elections by then) or mortgaged all restaurants to the Communist Chinese Government!
Everything was wonderful, food was absolutely sensational
Every course delicious, charming service, quiet cozy atmosphere. A joyful return to dining out!
Service was chaotic
Service staff seemed stressed and dishevelled
One had obnoxious body odour
We all had the truffle pasta to start x 4 (it was a totally different dish to the week before - very heavily salted this time - killing any subtlety)
Even though there was lots of space we had to raise our voices to talk across the table – not the experience we had been looking forward to.
Wonderful staff and unbelievable food, would return in a heartbeat
Due to Covid-19 restrictions the table we were seated wasn't the best but it was understandable. However the service was fantastic, everyone was great. The food was good, I did expect it would have been a little better given the price however everything was nice.
As per usual, the dining experience was amazing !! We where worried about COVID-19 but they had all guests well spaced & we felt extremely safe.. food & service was exceptional as per what we come to expect every time we visit Grossi Florentino!!
We will definitely be coming back soon !!!
Brilliant family lunch. Pasta perfection
Nice Italian atmosphere. Service very attentive. Prince is a super guy!
The staff was excellent, very friendly and professional. It was very expensive but worth it!
Love our lunch at Florentino Grill will definitely return soon.
One of our restuarant staples; consistently a lovely experience with tantalising menus that are hard to selct from
Nice greeting, good and quick service, and after theatre dinner, easy to share plates and fun atmosphere.
One guest changed order before waitress left table but received original order.
Potato dish arrived late when nearly finished steak and were no longer hot
So good to experience a reliable always the same always the best dining experience
Had a fantastic meal and we were a group of 8 who all work in the beef industry. Carlo recommended we leave it to the guys in the kitchen to look after us and every dish was outstanding! The wines were impeccable also... can't wait to go back!
Maybe recommend to a friend. Don't ask me to write a review that has so many characters as you have the ratings to judge from.
I’ve eaten here a few times and it is always excellent!
Great food, great service!
Perfection. Love this place! And will be back very soon.
Impeccable food and service. Staff so attentive and committed to guest satisfaction . Thank you for the birthday greetings. Authentic Italian hospitality! Grazie Mille!
Grossi's is a favourite of ours each time we're in Melbourne. The service is outstanding, all staff are welcoming, friendly and professional, however Jeanette is the absolute best. Every dining experience we've had at Grossi's has been a real treat
If you want great food with great wine, this is the place to be. Its a consistent, high quality product. They get farm-to-plate, they know the provenance of their inputs, and they cook with love for the food.
It ain't cheap. You can get out the door with your wallet, but you have to be careful on the wine list, there is a lot of vintage well curated cellar there which would drain your wallet in a flash.
I enjoyed my meal immensely. It's a real pleasure to eat out in style, with people who like what they are doing.
Service felt slow like waiting ten mins for your drinks. And waiter seems to be running round everywhere. Food was good fair priced.
My husband and I had a lovely lunch, we chose the 3 course set menu. The staff added to making our lunch date really enjoyable, we couldn’t ask for a better experience. I’ve wanted to go to Grossi for years and I am so pleased I’ve been.
Amazing, one of the best experiences i have ever had at a restaurant. Food was outstanding, service was perfect and the whole experience is First Class
Our server was helpful in describing the meals when we had a question. She was attentive without hovering. Great atmosphere, fabulous food, lovely night.
Just delicious with fabulous service as always - best Tiramisu is Melbourne!
Overall experience... so so
My scotch fillet was unexpectedly a bit tough. Next time I would have a pasta dish.
The evening was delightful, waitress was extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. The food was exquisite, delicious and very tasty, blended with a great recommendation of wine by the waitress.
The Grill is a regular venue for when I entertain overseas friends. Quality is always guaranteed.
Maintained the usual high standard. Marco and team did a great job during the busy lunch session! Well done!
The restaurant served beautiful food. Just a little overpriced
Subtle elegance, unobtrusive attention and refined cuisine.
Our first visit for quite a while and we left disappointed as the meal was very expensive for what was really a basic meal - steak and whole fish. There are better places in Melbourne to spend that type of money.
Food was ok but there are better places to eat for the money
Traditional Italian dishes presented with flair - Tuscany would be proud of the food and presentation. Professional service- friendly without intrusive. Very comprehensive wine list featuring great Italian and Australian varieties. Tiramisu to die for- best ever eaten. Presence of Guy Grossi on the floor added to the ambience. Fine dining experience- good value, service, food, ambience all ticked. One of Melbourne’s finest and well worth the interstate trip - has been on the wish list and met all expectations.
One would think that an Italian restaurant that was as established as this restaurant is would know how to make their pasta dishes authenticity!
It was simply perfect. The best dining experience I've had in Melbourne for a long time.
The food wasn’t tasty at all. My swordfish didn’t have any flavour, and very watery... but the side dish, a salad, was way too salty, feels like they put whole bag of salt in the dish... they also got me the wrong wine, I order for a white wine, and it came out a red...
I understand it was a busy night, but all above were not professional... although we got bit discount from the manager at the end, but I truly hope the over $200 bill for two of us (no dessert) can worth better.
