Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have had lunch there several times and it is consistently good. The dinging area is upscale and perfect for conversation and to have a great meal. The service is always friendly, professional, and efficient.

My family celebrated our Grandmother's 90th birthday here yesterday. There were 10 of us, including two children, and we were seated in the wine alcove. The restaurant was really accommodating; I brought in a custom cake and had two small flower vases delivered for the table. The service was really good from all staff, but our main server, Amanda, really... More

We've been to this restaurant before and keep coming back too. The quality of the food is excellent and the service always first rate. On this occasion we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed eating in the main dinning room and listening to the live music coming from the bar area. This reminded us of places we've eating in... More

Went to "Grappa 72" for Valentine Day plus hubby's birthday. We made a reservation for 5:30p.m. and were surprised to see many people already there. Everything was superb: cozy place with quiet smooth jazz playing, nice wine, good appetizer (eggplant filet baked with tomato sauce and five cheeses) and delicious entries. I ordered Cotoletta di vitello (Veal chop in garlic,... More

Tucked in the back of a small strip mall on Central Avenue convenient to an I-90 exit, Grappa 72 has a warm bustle with a loyal local following for its quality creative takes on Italian cuisine. A 3-piece combo played on Friday night while I waited for my companion to arrive the congenial bar. Good wine selection, attentive bar-keep. The... More

In town for my daughter's college basketball game. Picked Grappa based on the great reviews from Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Located in a strip mall we did not know what to expect, we did not have reservations but were seated immediately. The atmosphere was great and our server Amanda was friendly and professional. Being from Boston we are... More
