This was our second and unfortunately, last visit. It was nowhere near capacity on this evening (Valentine's Day). There were three servers for only 7 tables, yet service was extremely slow. Once we were able to place our orders, food came quickly, but it was...More

A small group of friends, getting together for lunch, could not choose a better place than Grano. Friendly service. Excellent minestrone soup. Nice menu selection. Pizza calabrese was tasty and filling.
