Although italian restaurants are quite common around the world, it is always a pleasure for me as an italian whenever I find a good one during my trips. Grano is nicely located in a quiet street tucked a few meters away from one of the major arteries of Gangnam. This offers easy access (if your driver gets the address right)... More

Food is amazing! Amazing! Smaller, but very reasonable portions. A little pricey---but still very good value considering the top quality of the food. Very authentic and VERY good! Also had great service.

Overall experience was sub par. My husband and I went to Grano this evening after I read the reviews here on TripAdvisor- they all touted the best Italian food experience in Seoul. We called day of to make the reservation and the host on the phone was very accommodating. The restaurant is easy to find and once inside, it is... More

In a city where the words Pasta and Pizza appear more often than they do in Rome it's such a pleasure to come across a place that is clearly operated by someone who knows what these items are. While employing a fusion of genuine items from Italy with locally sourced items Chef Santino has recreated a true oasis of fine... More

I go to Grano pretty often. Grano's pasta is amazing. Even if you've never been to Italy, you can almost feel it here with Chef Sortino's touch. Insalata con Filetto di Manzo and Bottarga are my favorites!

If you wouldn't know that you are in Seoul, then you might as well think that you are in Italy: the cozy yet modern atmosphere, the food quality, the service, the wine list. You can just love this place. And by the way, try the ravioli with jeju pork: to die for!!!

Went there several times for quick weekend lunch. Food is casual and quite tasty. So far we haven't been disappointed and will go there again.

We have been to Grano on the occasion of my birthday. The service and food quality is really good. Pizzas were superbly delicious. I highly recommend it as a place to have good Italian food in Seoul.

Great pizzas, and other courses. There is no criticism on the food. Place is small and stuffed but the service was flattering. Wine is expensive and the heating was ok. It must be better in summer. A must come back place.

Staying in Apgujeong / Cheongdam

Neighbourhood Profile
Apgujeong / Cheongdam
Aside from Sinsa / Garosugil, no other area in Seoul connotes the words “luxury” and “fancy” like Apgujeong and Cheongdam. Global luxury brands have set up their flagship stores here, catering to the neighbourhood's mostly affluent residents. It’s also one of the top areas in Korea (some say the world) for cosmetic surgery, attracting hundreds of thousands each year for a little nip or tuck. The other parts of Apgujeong and Cheongdam are mostly lavish residential buildings for some of Seoul’s most affluent alongside extravagant restaurants, bars, spas, and other spots for indulgence. And Cheongdam has long been a bastion for flashy clubs and parties, though in recent years, Itaewon has emerged as a strong challenger to those claims.
