We've been here a few times, and as always it was great. The service and food is spot on. We took our daughter for her birthday, and they made sure that she was the reason for celebrating.

A good place for lunch and dinner. Homemade cuisine at its finest. Salad to pastas. Delicious. Ravioli is pretty yummy if you like ravioli. A place to celebrate special occasions too.

An outstanding restaurant in a small town. Well worth travelling through two towns to get to! Excellent service, excellent Italian food with Northern, Central and Southern Italian selections. (You have to know Italy to know what I am talking about.)

We heard from everyone that we should go to Grappolo so we did and we were not disappointed!! The food was obviously freshly made and the service was great. We will go back every time we are in the valley!!

Finally found an Italian restaurant on the Central Coast! Everything was terrific, from the bruschetta, to the pizza, to the house-made pastas, to the desserts. Try the tortelloni with pink sauce and end with tiramisu. It is a small, local place, so get ready for...More
