Il Grano is perfection. The dishes are expertly crafted, well thought out, and presented beautifully. The crudo dishes are particularly exceptional. You are NOT going to get sloppy noodles and sauce here. It is high-end Italian all the way.

Amazing experience at Il Grano. The chef made me discover a beautiful side of Italia! Service was excellent, and all the dishes was perfect! A bonus for the white truffle pizza!
