This is a nice restaurant near the river serving Mediterranean food that is a little pricey but very good. Service is good and excellent outdoor patio seating facing the river is available.

We recently had lunch at Grappa, to celebrate a special occasion. The food was excellent, our waiter Steve was so accommodating and friendly, and we loved sitting on the patio with a view of Clear Creek. An already special day was made all the more memorable.

We recently had dinner at Grappa while visiting Golden and seeing a childhood friend I had not seen in 42 yrs, and Grappa turned out to be the PERFECT place to have dinner. We enjoyed relaxed/ yet elegant surroundings, a wonderful waitress who knew exactly how to serve wine and dinner without any one feeling rushed in any way. A... More

We stopped here for lunch expecting upmarket Mediterranean food but this establishment seemed to focus on simple Italian, some light French and very little else from the surrounding Mediterranean region.. Be that as it may lets rate the food. After looking over an uninspiring menu; my wife ordered a spinach salad and added shrimp. I ordered the Caesar salad with... More

Start with a marvelous outdoor seating area overlooking Clear Creek and add expertly prepared Italian/Mediterranean Cuisine for a memorable dining experience! My wife, Julie has been comparing Eggplant Parmasan entrees from all over the state for the past few years now and places this one at the top of the current list. My Saltimbocca was also a culinary delight. My... More

The service was slow. The girl that waited on us was not good. Scattered. Had to ask for silverware , water and salt and pepper. The drinks finally came with the food. Couldn't get her to get the check and another server finally came to cash us out. The menu had some nice fresh items that were interesting. We all... More

I went here on a date on a night that started to rain. We weathered the storm, finding it romantic. The staff accommodated us with extra umbrellas. Max was our waiter and he was wonderful! He knew the menu and made great suggestions. I had bow-tie pasta with smoked salmon in a creamy Parmesan sauce. Although I was getting full... More

We just had he most wonderful experience for our anniversary dinner. We ate at a local restaurant, Grappa, met Gordon, a past president of the local Mycological Society, who brought in fresh porcinis (Boletus edulis) for the restaurant. Chef Maurice then turned them into a delightful appetizer that he brought to the table for us all to share! John, our... More
