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!!

We visited this restaurant because they have an enclosed outdoor balcony which is dog-friendly. The pastas were good, as was the pizza. Beer and wine is sold as well. Some of the staff seemed a little put off by the dog, even though he was...More
