Stepping inside Grappino Trattoria's retro-style dining room, one feels as if one has waltzed back in time to the 1950s. Grappino is a much loved restaurant in Brisbane thanks to the consistency of both the hearty food and the warm service. The feel of Grappino is one of true attention to detail and care in preparation and delivery. From the setting of the restaurant right through to the service this restaurant hums with excited chatter. It is no doubt then that the majority of Grappino's happy clientele are word of mouth customers and repeat offenders.

The staff will make you feel right at home as you ponder the very attractive mains and wine menu. With eight authentic Italian beers to choose from and wines from various regions throughout Italy, you will be in no rush to get back home. Don't come here expecting to see a ham and pineapple pizza on the menu, folks; Grappino prides itself on providing authentic dishes created with top quality local and seasonal produce. On the menu you will find Black Angus beef cuts, homemade pasta, milk fed veal, ocean fresh seafood and all manner of Italian and local wines to accompany whatever dish you choose. One of Grappino's success stories is their popular antipasti platter for four or five people. Word has it that this is one of the best you will find in Brisbane, and with the inclusion of shellfish on the platter, on can imagine why.
