Gnocchi with brown butter and sage
Prawn tortelli with tomato, lemon and tarrago
In honour of our recently passed head chef Valerio Nucci we have reinstated his signature dish — a lasagna like no other.
Warm & attentive service The veal ragu pasta al dente & tasty Orange duck here always delicious. The grill calamari tender and juicy One of our favourite Italian restaurant
The staff were really friendly and attentive, nice venue. Food was a little disappointing for the price, (most dishes we had were a bit oily) but otherwise a good night
Potentially the best affogatto I have ever had.
Loved our wedding breakfast and our anniversary dinner. Thankyou for your complimentary Prosecco - it made our special night even more special. ??
Great service and lovely atmosphere
We weren’t drinking so it was a cheap nite out. We’ve always loved the Grand to celebrate birthdays, but it just isn’t the same without Branco and Alex, they’d always welcome us back like old friends. And haven’t seen Kristy around either. The Antipasto plate used to be so much better with more meat selection, where’s the braesola? And if 5 ppl why not add an extra slice of meat and charge a bit more? And where is the marinated eggplant and the grissini sticks? Less product at the same price, nah not what it used to be. The main courses and desserts were still the same, but it’s lost some of its sparkle without old friends.
The six course birthday degustation was well worth it, particularly the three entrees - duck liver parfait, squid, and gnocchi. The experience was enhanced by the fantastic service!
Excellent and reliable on all counts
We love the consistency of the Grand, food is always of an excellent standard, generous portions, great service, and soft furnishings allow for conversations to be had without yelling. We love it!!
Still benchmark after all these years. Larger than usual portions at every price point. Wine list still fascinating. A respite from the world.
The building looks like it's falling apart on the out4but once inside, the Restaurant looks quite nice. The waiting staff were keen to serve but not well trained. The food (a la carte) was quite nice.
Wonderful space, excellent service and the food is really good. Its rare to be in a real dining room, beautifully decorated, and not too loud!
Great evening and atmosphere -highly recommend
Great food, service and wine!
I always enjoy my visits here and return as often as I can.
An interesting and tasty menu presenting modern versions of classical Italian dishes in a Yum Cha menu . Supported by good service . I have dined here 3 times in the past 12months in groups of 4,12 and 16 and was provided with excellent food and service on each occasion .
Great Food excellent Ambience superb Service excellent Wine list excellent A real gem
Not my first time but very disappointed with the service level this time.
The room has a cozy ambience, tables are well spaced and the background noise level is low. The food was excellent and service was friendly, respectful and prompt.
333 Burnley St, 3121, Richmond, Australia
This institution in the heart of Richmond in the beautiful Grand Hotel serves fine dining, award winning Italian cuisine. Try their filleto manzo with a bone marrow butter, delicious rabbit pappardelle, or stunning anatra arrosto - roasted duck with semolina gnocchi and orange and juniper berry sauce. Crisp linen adorns the wooden fine furnishings and subtle artworks are a feature in the room. This is a place that has won many awards including restaurant of the year (Trip Advisor) and is a beautiful place to bestow a gift voucher to a loved one for that perfect gift. If you don’t feel like the full dining experience but would rather a cocktail or an elegant glass of wine, catch up with friends in the very chic lounge bar with its amazing beer garden, boasted to be the best in Melbourne, and listen to well-known local DJs on the weekends. Monday night is Italian night, or if you fancy sampling the duck then Wednesday’s is Duck & Pinot night in the public bar. Make sure you book so as to not miss out!
