During our tour of Europe we were taken to this restaurant by our friends that we were staying with. It didn't look great from the outside and not like the kind of place I would usually choose but it was hands down the best meal of our month long trip and quite possibly the best meal I've ever eaten. Beautiful... More

Had dinner there. Small but nice osteria with rustic appearance. Good bread and focaccia, nice pasta dishes (but not terrific) and very good grilled meat as in most of the osterias in the region or you can do yourself at home but not in Cesenatico where every place is fish-oriented, and this is the reason for such a place. Service,... More

My fiancé and I are MASSIVE fans of steak in London (Roxies, Gaucho, you name it) and we loved the tender steaks 'filetto di manzo' or 'tagliata' one! (In fact, they were so good, we went twice!) Seasoned really well and simply. We also got the roast potatoes as a side. Lovely staff- Alice is particularly personable. Molto delicioso, grazie... More

friendly service, nice furniture with air condition, and the most important: great, fresh food with home made ingredients. Delicious meat, pasta and bruschette with prosciutto crudo sliced life at your sight!

If you're fished out (!) this is the place to eat meat. Fresh ingredients beautifully cooked. Pasta and Tagliata excellent, home made puddings. Book for busy times. Owner seems shy/gruff, but don't let that stop you! Highly recommended.

Great menu and very friendly service. We did not book so we were told that we had to finish in 90 mins. Our waitress Alicia was very friendly and helpful. The quality of the meats was excellent. Will definitely visit again. The local wine was good.

Osteria del Grillo is an unpretentious trattoria with outstanding cuisine and friendly service. Our waitress Alicia spoke excellent English and was helpful in helping my friend and I decide what to order which ranged from grilled veal to eggplant parmignana to a shared pasta with mushrooms and fennel salad. Everything was delicious.

Food here is excellent. Good selection and the menu is also in English. Huge choice of wines to pick from. Very traditional Italian rustic restaurant. A little dark though. The head waiter is a bit serious he could do with being a bit more welcoming to non Italian diners but don't let him put you off. Really excellent food.

The food is always excellent here, our latest meal two days ago didn't disappoint. "off menu" there is always a good selection of seasonal produce and the steaks will not disappoint. A huge array of pastas to choose from. We definitely recommend you try the hand cut ham starter which will be sliced in the restaurant to order. A rustic... More
