Il Grappolo was a fantastic local restaurant with friendly service. The crab stuffed zucchini flowers are a must-have and seafood linguine was packed full of flavours. Will definitely return!

Il Grappolo is always lovely. Despite a lot more competition in the area now, it is still the best & has our loyalty. The food & wine is excellent and the service for eating with small children is outstanding.

We went to Il Grappolo for a Sunday family lunch to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The food was very nice and the servings quite large. The zucchini flowers were as good as all the reviews we had read.

Wonderful food with friendly, efficient, but unobtrusive service. Il Grappolo is an excellent restaurant and we dine there regularly. One of the best Italian restaurants in the Inner West.

Great service, delicious food, a perfect place for our get together. We enjoyed the zucchini flowers and gnocchi (walnut and Gorgonzola), the gamberi pizza was great too with excellent base. We also had Fritto misto and calamari for entre which were also excellent. The eye fillet steak was unfortunately a little over cooked. Will definitely come back.

The food was great, and the staff very accommodating - they recommended an excellent Italian wine to complement our meal, and they offered to take the amazing semifreddo dessert we ordered off the bill to compensate for running out of one of the main courses we ordered. Would definitely recommend to others.

I thought the experience and the food was good. It was difficult to get the staff's attention at times. We did also find that the restaurant was a little loud inside. Generally very good. Thank you.

Service was excellent. The meals had great ingredients but the execution was lacking. The stuffed zuchinni flowers were too oily and the batter too heavy. The sauce and condiments on the john dory let the dish down.
