Grissini Ristorante Italiano
Our experience was great except for the attitude of the Maitre/owner of the establishment. He was rude and unreasonable due to the fact we had a Groupon. He would only honor (1) Groupon per table and made us sit at two different tables. We tried to reason with him that he could free up another table and maximize his income potential. He was getting the same amount of money from us whether or not we sat at one or two tables. Additionally, he should have been grateful to have customers during these trying times. Needless to say, we won't be going back. The purpose of the Groupon is to bring in new business so that hopefully they will come back. We enjoyed the food and service and would have come back. Unfortunately, the actions of the owner negated any possibility of this happening for us and the other couple we went to dinner with.
Service was great and food was incredible. Will definitely return soon!
Great food! Great ambiance. The best part is when the owner came over to see if everything was OK. He was an older gentleman, dressed in a suit with a matching tie and pocket handkerchief. So classy.
They did not accept the reservation even though we received confirmation
Absolutely delicious! The service, the wine, the food, everything was incredible. After dinner I inquired about having a rehearsal dinner and the owner took initiative to provide me with several menu options and showed us the private room. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quality meal.
Consistently wonderful experience. Quality food, staff, atmosphere, and desserts!! Enjoy sharing with family, friends or my very special valentine!
Beautiful restaurant, warmly greeted by owner, great pastas
We had an all around great family dinner. Service was top notch, food was good, and portion size was perfect.
Cozy, old school Italian feel, complete with the attentive, personal and charming owner/Host. Romantic vibe. Candlelight ambience. Feels familiar - like your go-to neighborhood restaurant, where “everybody knows your name“. There is a very wide variety of dishes to choose from, and you can design your own (fresh) pasta entree. You can’t go wrong with the baked dishes, although my husband had a filet Mignon which was melt in your mouth delicious. I loved the house salad. Also noticed a private room in the back which I assume can be rented out for private events.
Grissini is an elegant and old fashioned dining experience! We were delighted to find such a lovely place in the Agoura Hills area and it is a far better option then the more typical chain establishments. Giuseppe is a wonderful host and the staff is top notch. By the way, the food is excellent - real Italian favorites! We are planning to go back with our whole family!
Fantastic food. Had not dined here before, but will definitely keep Grissini's in mind for a fine dining experience. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
Really great, intimate service and the food was exceptional
Always excellent food, great service!
Amazing authentic Italian food. Incredible service. We all ordered pastas and were delighted with them. I had a fabulous, fresh and delicious salad with arugula, endive and radicchio that reminded me of Italy.
Excellent food and service. Very homey decor. Location is not easily visible off the street. The owner is there the whole time and everyone is very friendly. Definitely recommend
Christmas Eve was fabulous, even though the wood oven wasn’t working and we couldn’t have pizza!
Dinner has been consistently delightful and the ambiance quiet yet friendly. The owner always makes it a point to stop by and check on everything. Excellent evening!
I've already recommended Grissini to my daughter and son in law. A lovely place for a romantic
Christmas dinner! We loved it.
One of our favorite places. Excellent food and service.
Beautiful, relaxed and romantic ambiance. Immediately greeted at the door with a welcoming and cordial host. Menu is expansive with customized pasta, protein and sauce to fit every palate. Portions are extremely generous. Although the kitchen was backed up and our meal delayed, when it arrived it was expertly prepared and piping hot. The veal marsala was delicious and easily the most tender veal I've ever eaten. Seafood black ink pasta (special of the night) was scrumptious and packed with seafood. Fried calamari was crispy and pizza was great as well. The restaurant's use of the freshest and highest quality ingredients, coupled with their attention to detail, really makes this place a winner!
Had a very nice experience for the second time in a few weeks. Host/owner was welcoming and charming. Staff attentive. Food fantastic. Ambiance is classic italian but not old or outdated. Felt good, familiar and comfortable. Highly recommend. We had Caeser salad, calamari, eggplant parm and sliced NY steak over arugula with shaved Parma - great all the way around.
What a great find! Delicious food, personal and attentive service, a gem of a place tucked away in a quiet corner of Agoura Hills. Looking forward to hosting a large party here soon!
Great ambiance, great service, would definitely come back.
My new "go to" Italian restaurant when I'm in the area..
Great service! Excellent food made my husband and I Anniversary so special
Grissini's never misses, food, service, friendliness outstanding.
Took a friend there for their first visit, they loved it.
Fabio is a great waiter, Martin takes special care of everyone in the bar and beyond.
Can't wait for my next visit.
Very pleasant restaurant with tasty meals and a large choice of traditional italian plates , the service is very good and professional.
I would definately recommend it.
Consistently the best Italian food in the area , hands down. Owner is always present and the service is impeccable
Reminds me of the restaurants I grew up with back in the north end of Boston
Amazing place to eat, great food and very friendly staff.
Always love grissinis! Best Italian food around and service is impeccable
We LOVE this place!!!
Love this place!! We have been there 5 or 6 times now and every time have been fabulous. Best ceasar salad anywhere. Love the low carb linguini and this is the only place I have seen it. Also great were the veal chop, mushroom risotto and lasagna. Can't wait to go back again.
The host , who I suspect is the owner, greeted us cheerfully and continued to monitor every table all evening. The food was delicious and plentiful. There was a good selection of wines! I would return if we are ever back in the area.
Giuseppe Bellisari owner greets you warmly, seats you comfortably and then the magic begins! Great staff and food at fair prices. Can't wait to go again!
The first thing I noticed when I walked in the restaurant was how hot it was inside. I ordered a glass of Zin and it smelled and tasted like vinegar. I’m not a Sommelier, but I know what wines taste like when not properly stored. I sent the wine back and the (I’m assuming) owner came to my table and disagreed with me saying he both smelled and tasted the wine and that Zins are supposed to taste like that. I have over 100 bottles of wine in my 2-zone wine frig at home and if I had a wine that smelled and tasted like that Paso Robles Zin, I’d mix it with EVOO for a salad dressing.
Before going to dinner I had purchased an online discount ticket to use at dinner. This was the type of ticket that the restaurant would either scan or take down the ticket number. When we arrived we were told that we had to bring a printed ticket in order to receive the discount.
We were never told this in advance and I was surprised the owner could not make an accommodation and be more leaning toward customer service.
So we paid full price for a dinner that was mediocre.
Will return one more time with the printed discount ticket but will not return after. Too many Italian restaurants in the area with good customer care.
Best Caesar salad I’ve had. Puttanesca sauce was the best. Wonderful ambiance, service staff was great and the owner is right there making the dining experience exceptional.
Another great experience. Food is fabulous and the service can not be beat!
You can always expect a great meal with fabulous service every time you go to Grissini’s
Great ambiance and location.
