Italian | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

Reserve your ‘Off-Menu’ dish in the Grill at cult classic Grossi Florentino when you book via OpenTable.

The Grill at Grossi Florentino is situated on the ground floor of our two-storey venue. This is the epitome of sophisticated, casual dining the Tuscan way. Simple food that’s based on fresh local and premium imported ingredients with the emphasis on seasonality, and home or artisan grown produce.

“In my earliest memories of childhood I can see the kitchen, a place where all would come, filled with these familiar smells, and the laughter of people that love each other and with the anticipation of flavours to come”. ?Guy Grossi

The Grill is the embodiment of this, personal service and the buzz of the open kitchen creating a magnificent atmosphere. One that is centred around ‘La Griglia’, where the Grill derives its name, is always full of the finest aged meats sourced from various producers, and the constant quest for the best quality ingredients.More

I surprised my mother by taking her to Om Nom for a treat. We both loved every minute of it; from the wonderful service to the exceptional food. It is such an interactive experience, you feel like a child, we couldn't help but laugh and giggle. It plays with with your taste buds and your mind boggles at how someone can create such an inventive menu. Highly recommend! More
