Where do we start with a place like this?

It’s bursting at the seams with charm and appeal - you can’t go past without promising yourself a meal there.

In a fairly bland semi-industrial area, Grano is a magical scene of colour.

You will see wheelbarrows and trolleys filled with geraniums and herbs as well as hanging baskets of greenery everywhere you look.

An ornate vegetable display features in the entrance.

There is indoor and outdoor seating and little rustic ornamental touches add to the character of this beautiful place.

In fact, the attention to detail has me wondering if the food is just as perfect. So we were just as keen to check the menu out!

The menu was tempting, with entrees, salads, mains, pizzas and pastas. We decided on the Piatto Fritto per Due which was a very big selection of crumbed goodies including eggplant, feta-stuffed olives, salt and pepper calamari and others on a bed of balsamic greens.

It was for two people but a very generous serving. We both agreed it was possibly the best calamari we have had!

For mains we chose the intriguingly named Granchio e Aglio.

This was in fact perfectly cooked spaghetti with a beautiful mix of spanner crab, zucchini, garlic, shallots, cream and tomato.

It was so delicious! The flavours were delicate and it all combined so well and was nicely presented in its own small pan.

Our next main was Filetto di Manzo Occhio.

This was a beautiful grilled eye fillet of beef (260g) with wood fired vegetables, wilted spinach and truffle pumpkin puree.

It was cooked to perfection and very tender. It was such a wonderful and generous dish and the plate exploded with colour!

Thumbs up indeed.

Could we possibly fit in dessert? No, but the choice was too tempting. 

Apart from a dessert menu, there was a pizze dolci (sweet pizza) menu. So we chose the Roche Roche. This delicious thing was covered in Grano’s special caramel sauce, whipped cream, tim tam pieces and ferrero roche chocolate crunch. I don’t know if it was because it was lighter than expected, or if it was just so moreish but we couldn’t stop eating it. That caramel sauce was just superb!

Would we come back here again? Absolutely. 

It was a wonderful experience and a place you could comfortably recommend to others. The food certainly was a match for the décor which we would describe as excellent. 

These Dames would like to get back to explore the menu further. It is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, with shorter hours on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Those Dames, who review for Sir and Mlady Dine Out, dined as guests of Grano. Thanks to Christina for looking after us so well. Special thanks also to Carmelina for the invitation.
