Great food, a delicious primitivo from Puglia. Service was friendly and the chef provided a delicious bowl of pasta and parmesan for our 1yr old!
Worth the trek across the city.
My only feedback would be to get another high chair. There were 3 families needing a high chair in when we were there but only one available :)

First time in Grano having seen some excellent reviews and I was not disappointed. From the moment I entered the restaurant, the main man Roberto knew my name (first ever) and was extremely helpful in choosing the food and wine. The food is authentic Italian, so if this is what you want, Grano is a must! I'll definitely be back!

Lovely food and friendly staff. The pasta is fantastic and everything else was great as well. As someone who doesn't drink wine it would have been nice to have had the option of a beer (a nice Italian craft beer would be great) but the lack of it certainly didn't diminish my enjoyment of my meal.

I got the vegan option and it was a simple pasta with tomato sauce and basil, which I love, but this one was very plain in taste, which i was very surprised as I heard loads of good things about this restaurant. I may be that the rest of the main were better and not much effort in the vegan main

Wonderful, flavoursome, authentic Italian food. The wine list is pricey but comprehensive and the desserts are divine.

Service was pleasant and welcoming.

It was my first lunch here and won't be the last. The food was extremely nice. In particular, as I'm Sicilian, I particularly appreciated the real Ricotta cheese at the end. Very recommended.

What a gem, this little restaurant impresses in the right way. The food is authentic Italian, organic options, homemade pasta yum yum. Decent wine choice to complement the menu. Excellent service & attention to your order. Pretty good value comparing to other newbies in Dubllin. My own veggie main could’ve been a bit more generous in portion apart from that thumbs up all the way.
We didn’t order a dessert but the tiramisu looked delish, defo a reason to return. Id recommend Grano as a great date spot.

The food is delicious and the staff are brilliant however I went to the trouble of reserving a table specifically at 1 o clock. Our order was taken very promptly after arriving yet our food was not served until 1.50pm. This was a lunch visit and like every other employee we have an allocated lunch time (2pm in this case).

The restaurant was in no way packed so there was no reason for this delay in service. You open for lunch daily, I am sure you have had your fair share of busy/quiet days unfortunately the timing was managed very badly on this occasion.

A bit disappointed as had to wait for a booking so was expecting a better meal.
We were a party of four and only one person really enjoyed the meal. The swordfish and aubergine dish was really nice. Portions are quite small which means you need to order a side dish which increases the bill. Nice venue and staff.

It was our first time attending Grano and we will definitely return. To begin, we shared some Crostini which was served with a very spicy sausage on a burner. For starters, I had the Meatballs which were fab! My girlfriend Emma had the Mackerel. Our mains were both amazing Pasta dishes. For Dessert, I had the Tiramisu. I have no hesitation recommending Grano. The whole experience was nice and relaxed from start to finish. We enjoyed a nice bottle of White Wine (Grillo) from Sicily. Price wise, the food and drink was very reasonable. Looking forward to heading back to Grano again!
