No, it's not in Manhatton. I get that. But if you ever find yourself on the other side of the GW Bridge you need to do yourself a favor and stop at Grissini for dinner. It's a special place. I've been there a couple times now, first with a large group of co-workers for a holiday meal, and then again... More

Expensive food that was tasty. However we were seated at a table blocking the exit door with a significant draft. Yes we had reservations and no there were no other tables to be had. Tough to eat a meal with winter jackets on. Service was average for such a pricey place. For the same money one can do better.

This evening, I've ordered a Parma pizza $18 and I've got after 5 minutes my pizza (???). The pizza was warm and not hot and the cheese was cold/firm; in other words the pizza seems to be precooked and the reheated with just adding the Arucola and Parma ham on the top. I rejected the pizza leaving the restaurant because... More

You eat here well, not necessary pure Italian but good food. For the area the prices are normal, it remains expensive though for non NYC customers. Nevertheless we ate a great steak and great Dover Sole, nothing to complain about! Worth the visit!

We work right down the road from Grissini's but haven't been there in a while because my boss thought it overpriced and he hated the valet parking (don't ask). We gave it another try (without him) and found the menu to be wonderful and not really out of line with its pricing, considering comparable restaurants. The wine, on the other... More

I took my girlfriend to Grissini for our 1 year anniversary. We waited for an hour and a half but they were nice enough to comp our first round of drinks. I had the Rack of Lamb which was the best and the veal chop was pleasantly oversized and equally delicious. Dress to impress. I definitely will be back.

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants I'm NJ. I stumbled on it during a business trip. Every time I come to this part of Jersey, I find a way to have meal here. The whole staff is extremely friendly too.

I've been going to lunch (and less often dinner) at Grissini's for more than 10 years and have ordered a wide range of dishes. My experience is that the food is always good and sometimes great. My best meals have been when we special order something like mussels in white wine sauce or order a daily special. I've been going... More

EWverything on the menu is prepared to perfection. The Waite staff is very knowledgable. Because the restaurant is rather small, it can get a little noisey. A very minor inconvenience.

Very highly rated, but our visit did not live up to expectations for two of four diners. One main course was inedible and the other, a paperdelle with mushrooms, was overcooked. The other two main dishes, however, were well received.
