Every visit to Puerto Rico for us - we stay in Dorado - involves a dinner at Grappa. We typically have the specials, and this visit was no different. We started with the watermelon/feta/cucumber salad (including the recommended Proseco pairing), then the mozarella-in-marinara, then we...had the pork scallopini and the lamb chops specials - both triumphant! We finished with the pineapple/guava rum pound cake and the tamarind creme brûlée. If you’re near Dorado, this is a great place for dinner!More

Amazing food and have a great variety of choice which includes Vegan and Vegetarian foods. Every dish they have served were all fresh and so rich in taste. They also have variety of choice for wine and also excellent service. It is a small restaurant...and have limited tables , so would strongly recommend call up front to make reservation.More

Very good service, nice place (an old house with modern goodies) and nice ambience. The appetizers we had were great- Vegan Caprese and the dessert was also great, the cheesecake. We really wanted Italian food so we went for the pasta, while the pasta tasted...very fresh the taste wasn’t wonderful. They had a nice collection of wines. Some things I would say were overpriced for the location.More

We were on a family vacation and didn't know the area well, but this restaurant was recommended in Fodor's Puerto Rico book and was ranked #1 on Trip Advisor. Let me just say it did not disappoint. First off the place has the ambiance of...your favorite coffee bar. Really distinct decor and a great music selection playing. We had appetizers that includes meatballs, humus and pita bread. They were fabulous. We had the seafood pasta, spaghetti and meatballs. The pasta was fabulous. The seafood was very fresh and included mussels, baby octopus, and giant shrimp. The staff were very attentive and friendly and helped the ambiance. This place earned their high reviews and I wish them the best going forward. We hope others discover this gem. You may want to call with a reservation as the place is on the small side (that is part of the ambiance). They fit my party of 5 in between their reservations on a Saturday night, but I think we got a bit lucky. So glad we did.More

We stayed at the RC Dorado and had the opportunity to visit this amazing restaurant during our stay. We went on a Sunday night so it wasn't particularly crowded which was perfect. The restaurant is small and has about 15 tables so it was an...intimate experience. The service is outstanding and they are very attentive. Their mission is to be sure the customer orders what they enjoy most. As far as changes to the menu (allergies) they are extremely accommodating. We ordered perfectly; burrata and octopus, followed by tremendous mushroom risotto and finished with our main dishes - mahi mahi and pasta di pollo. Truly a great off property experience, do not miss this gem when you are in Dorado!More

Our family of four had dinner here. It was so delicious. We had not eaten here in two years after the hurricane and it was exactly how I remembered but even better. Service was great. Food was great. Drinks were great. Dessert was bananas Foster...it was great. We are in Dorado for two weeks so hopefully we will be able to have a second meal there.More

Went as part of date night on a busy Friday night. The experience was still seamless. For appetizer we had the tortellini in Curry sauce. For the main course we had the risotto spagnolo with cured meats and the basil risotto with sauteed salmon. Had...the chocolate mousse for dessert. Drank Peroni beer and house lemonade. The tortellini lamb filling was juicy and flavor packed(the sauce needed a tad more salt), the risotto spagnolo was perfect al dente with a meaty flavor punch, and the basil risotto with salmon was almost perfect as well(salmon skin was not very crispy). The mousse was smooth and balanced. All the staff was very knowledgeable and educatedMore

For me, Grappa. is the best restaurant in Dorado. They always have excellent specials besides the regular menu. Great homemade pasta. Their wine list is very complete and reasonably priced.

We had another amazing meal at Grappa! I started with the prawn appetizer but passed it over to my brother when I realized the broth was chock full of bell peppers (that make me sick). Not to worry...the lobster special with champagne risotto and the...ribeye with egg over mushroom risotto were superb and were very generous portions. The bananas foster needs a little work, but the dinner was excellent.More

I suggest you call them. They have a bar area in the back or they could probably arrange the tables to fit that amount of people. The restaurant is small, so definitely would need a reservation for something like that... More
