What a wonderful place. The food is amazing and the staff is friendly, attentive and full of wonderful recommendations. I have never had a bad meal here. They don't rush you and make you feel at home.

Well girlfriends, and guys, this is one of those restaurants where you not only experience well prepared and delightful dishes but an experience that you will want to repeat. The hosts: Maurizio and Francesco are exceptional and gracious hosts. It's worth going to meet them -- let alone having dinner. Grano is great for singles who can sit at the bar and eat to their heart's desire. The food is original, hearty and satisfying. It has a depth to it that is just unbelievable. Every bit -- no matter how many years you may go there is a new, deeply satisfying experience. Although many go to Granos for the lamb, steak and pizza (cooked in a real brick oven), I go for the chicken, pasta and salads. On the weekends, you can just hang and become a member of the family. Before long, you will have your weekly, if not daily visit to this great restaurant.

Wow, what a perfect authentic Italian pizza place. I went there with some friends, not knowing the place at all. But the guy who took us goes there once/twice a month with his wife, so I knew this will be a great place. Once you are inside the restaurant you know that this is a real deal. I loved the roasted duck salad and their pizza grano, together with their tiramisu. Will absolutely go there again soon.

This quaint restuarant set in the heart of the west village has authentic italian cuisine. They make wonderful homemade pasta and brick oven pizzas. Each dish is a scrumptious delight.

Nice looking, cozy place. My dish was nothing special. Standard quality New York "Italian" stuff - not a single member of the staff was Italian. Good service. An app, pasta, wine and tip will set you back $40. The pizzas looked good; didn't taste it though.

Hands down the best Italian restaurant in America. Service with a smile doesn't even begin to describe the experience that awaits you at Grano.

NOT your run of the mill, heaps of squishy pasta place. Really a wonderful find. Inventive, fresh food, fantastic service. Charming ambiance. Quiet, perfect for a conversation, but also for a group.

From the moment you walk in to Grano Trattoria, you feel like you're in an Italian country home. the manager himself greeted us and served us( and it wasn't that crowded). the salads and home made foccacia were delicious and the service was excellent. When I ordered the apple tart, they offered to go to the store to get more vanilla ice cream as they were out at the time. Instead my boyfriend and I decided to share the chocolate polenta( out of this world) we were given dessert and after dinner cocktails on the house. the evening was wonderful.. I will definitely be back.. a great date spot or place to bring your parents or anyone ele you actually want to be able to talk to.

I went there last year, and being picky for fresh pasta, especially gnocchi, tried their gnocchetti with speck.
Basically, it was so good I almost fell out of my chair.
Eat here for some lovely flashbacks of the quality food you've eaten in Italy.

Like so many others before us, we happened to spot this attractive little restaurant walking around the village. We found it to have wonderful ambiance, delicious pasta and desserts. Most importantly, the wait staff is friendly, courteous and attentive.

I stumbled on this place on a rainy night looking for a good italian place to eat - boy am I glad we decided to go in. The pasta is amazing - as someone said in another review, this really may be the BEST italian food in NY. We didn't have reservations but it was early so I think we lucked out. Ambiance, service, food, wine - all fantastic and a great little date spot.

Grano is the best Italian food I've had in a long time. We always get great service and have wonderful food. I am at the point now where I don't even order off the menu, I just make suggestions to a type of meat and the rest is up to the chef... The lamb shank is to die for. The special pastas are always good and the Pizza is done the right way. We've had a party for 60 here once and it couldn't have gone better. We regularly sit down with between 2 to 10 and it is never a problem.

Pros: Romantic mid week, Quality, Friendly

The service is friendly, the prices are very reasonable. I wonder if sometimes the match between a diner and a cook's taste buds is simply a mis-match. If this is so, then Grano is for me. The food is absolutely delicious, although it is heavy so do not eat it too late. I leave the restaurant still licking my chops. Dessert is a definite end to the meal at this place. Wonderful location!!!

Grano is a must for those who want exceptional food, great service, excellent wine and a charming environment in which to dine. The owner of the restaurant even took time to sit with us and have a glass of grapa after dinner.
The spinach salad with green apples and goat cheese is superb. I had a lamb and pasta dish, the special, and my friend had salmon; both were exceptionally flavorful and the portions are good.
When dining here don't forget to finish your meal with grapa. Grano has an excellent selection.

We find this restaurant to be a good standby in the village. It is truely a trattoria in the purest sense of the word. The wait staff is always very friendly and the service overall has been good. We go here often when we don't want to spend too much money and can't think of another place to go.
Overall the food is very consistant and the basic Italian.

Grano is not your typical Italian restaurant - the innovative food not only pleased our palates, it was visually tantalizing as well. The owner of the restaurant personally greets customers and makes everyone feel very welcome. I recommend the artichoke and octopus appetizers, and I highly recommend the dessert of the night -

Warm room, good food, can't complain about this place. Pastas are all excellent - not your standard fare - a little experimental.

The pizzas, large enough to feed two, are delicious and the salads are wonderful, but main courses have always let me down.

It's a large place, easy to get into and good enough if you're in the neighborhood. With a glass of pinot grigio, I'm always happy when I share a Margarita pizza (basil, tomato, etc.) and the Grano Salad, a tasty and large salad that includes beets, arugala and shaved cheese.
