We ate here after our glider ride nearby. This is a smaller quaint local restaurant with very nice atmosphere, bar area, and great Italian food. We walked in without a reservation and managed a nice table for 8.

After spending the day in the beautiful wine country, it was great to set in such beautiful and relaxing ambience. The dinner was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding. This will be our "go to" place when we're in town.

This place is a real charmer the owner and staff are so eager to serve you and make you feel welcomed . Food is excellent, divine actually. Romantic atmosphere however a little small.

We were last here 3 years ago after an absence due to a marginal experience on previous visit. We were happy with our last experience and also with this one. Briefly we give them a 5 for food and a 3 for atmosphere. That said-...More

This is our go to restaurant whenever we are driving by. Great food, wine selection and service. Save room for dessert. The pasta, caesar salad, and veal is always a favorite of mine. My wife loves the pizza and other salads.

We've been here a few times, and as always it was great. The service and food is spot on. We took our daughter for her birthday, and they made sure that she was the reason for celebrating.

A good place for lunch and dinner. Homemade cuisine at its finest. Salad to pastas. Delicious. Ravioli is pretty yummy if you like ravioli. A place to celebrate special occasions too.

An outstanding restaurant in a small town. Well worth travelling through two towns to get to! Excellent service, excellent Italian food with Northern, Central and Southern Italian selections. (You have to know Italy to know what I am talking about.)

We heard from everyone that we should go to Grappolo so we did and we were not disappointed!! The food was obviously freshly made and the service was great. We will go back every time we are in the valley!!

While the wine list is mostly local Santa Barbara, Central Cal and some popular Italian, you don't go there for the wine, it simply has great ambiance! Super busy most days of the week with large tables and rooms for... More
