“Grappa has a great reputation and amazing reviews all around. The restaurant is smaller in size and quite popular amongst locals as well as visitors which is why it is suggested to make a reservation. Grappa is known for their fresh homemade pasta and variety of risotto. Menu and daily specials change, attached you’ll find sample menus of their daily specials as well as a menu from Grappa’s Facebook page.
