So the other day Im at work and a buddy from work has some food that looks pretty good. I asked him where he got it and he tells me this place called "grappa trattoria" and tells me where it is which is langstaff and weston rd.

I went there the other day, and the place is a great little gem for those like old school italian and great value for the money.The place definitley isnt fancy. It's kind of like a small run down version of nino diversa but with much better food and very nice portions.

For 10 bucks I got bruschetta, pasta, chicken cutlet, patato's and vegetables for like 10 bucks. Coulnd't even breath after...lol.

Everything I had was good and everything I didn't have looked good. If your looking for a nice little hidden gem I'd definitley give this place a go. I loved it and will make it a regular. I must mention though that it closes early. By 5:30 she's pretty much closing up shop.

      Nooo, I been in this area for 2 years now and finding good places is still a struggle. This place will be a staple for me though. I really liked it.

        Since you're new to the area c mac...not sure if you've found a pizza place that you like yet. If not, may I recommend Mario's. Their pizza is some of the best I've had.

          I like Ricci's for a pizza slice now and then.

          There is also Vincentina meats for sandwiches. Lunchtime gets pretty busy.

          There is a really good middle eastern place for kebabs at edgely and portage (near lowes).

            Hey Kwass, Im always up to try new places and defintley would like to find a new pizza joint up in my hood. I usually order Dante's which breaks the bank or Abruzzo's. Where is Mario's? Is it in that same mall?

            @dmartines123.

            I just came back from Grappa's today and noticed Ricci's right beside it. Ill check it out sometimes but Emily (the only and sweet Italian lady at Grappa's ) really laods up my container. Today I could only half and half the rest for tomorrow :)

              Mario's is on Jane, just South of Major Mack. I'm pretty sure it's take out only. Definitely worth a try!!

                  Exactly. Sorry to hear you didn't like it.

        Is it a sit down restaurant or is everything served from a hot table?

          Everything is served from the hot table, then you just go and pick a table to sit at.

              If your not comfortable eating there, get it to go, she'll still load your container up.
