The Grissino has just moved from the centre of Almancil to the Estrada de Vale do Lobo,Escanxinas,Almancil and is very well worth a visit. Delicious food prepared by the son of the original owner and beautifully served by his wife and brother in law. Lovely decor and log fire made our spur of the moment visit last night really enjoyable.

We went to grissino this evening as it had recently relocated from Almancil. What a disappointment. The soup was cold, the service was average. The two bottles of wine we ask for on the wine list were out if stock. We were eventually offered an alternative wine and were charged over the top. The menu was boring and the atmosphere... More

We had a superb meal here and we both agreed this is our favourite,Italian. Food was freshly cooked to order, the asparagus soup was soooo good. Their pasta dishes are superb. The tiramisu was the traditional type very well prepared and presented even better. A great restaurant that we believe is moving,to,nre premises in 2017. Well worth a visit.

This family run restaurant is the place to go it you want consistency. Always excellent food and Pietro's welcoming smile. We have been guests of Grissino for 15 years now and never disappointed. Booking recommended.

We have dined at Grissano's about 6 or 7 times now and have never once been disappointed. It is an intimate traditional style Italian restaurant with first rate food and service. My wife and I were first brought to it by friends over a year ago. Our initial introduction was very late one sunday night when most restaurants would have... More

Been going to resturants in the Algarve for more than twenty years but the meal we had a few days ago with six friends was fantastic. Not only was the food the best but the service and the whole experience was well worth a visit. Please go.

The young Italian chef is brilliant. The Venue in the backstreets of Almancil somehow adds to the experience. It is a hidden gem. The food was sensational. The service by the chef's co-owners, his Portuguese fiancé and Italian father, was absolutely charming. We were made to feel special from the moment we walked in. Proper Italian food with Italian awards... More

Fantastic restaurant to eat real Italian food. With real Italian ingredients. The carpaccio and burratta that we had were fabulous. The pasta with meat and the past with truffle was great too. Plus, fantastic Italian wine! A must!
