We needed to get away, so we drove to Grass Valley just to have lunch here. We weren't disappointed. The food, staff and ambiance were exceptional! I haven't had a steak sandwich in 20 years! Superb! My wife fell in love with the sweet potato fries. Don't miss this awesome restaurant if you're in the Grass Valley area!

I made a business trip up to Rough & Ready. I decided to bring my lunch partner and wife. We arrived at the restaurant at a good time, not too busy and we were seated and we ordered a drink while we looked over the recipe. If you like omelets you are in luck, they have 101 different ones to... More

Welcoming staff and great food. Oh, and parking in the back, rare in Grass Valley! We ordered the mint mojitos while we chose our food. VERY good! This visit we tried the meat loaf, (husband's favorite) and thoroughly enjoyed it. We split the very generous serving and it came perfectly plated on separate plates. Wait staff were attentive and friendly.

While visiting in Grass Valley (which we really think is a wonderful area w/ friendly people and beautiful green) we we able to eat at Tofanelli's twice, breakfast and Linner (somewhere around 3ish) and both times the food and service were excellent! Their prices are pretty high but the good food makes it a little less painful.

I come here a lot for lunches with friends and family and I am never disappointed. They have a great selection of food and it is always delicious. The only problem is parking, but that is a problem throughout the downtown area and not their fault. During the summertime the patio is always great to eat and talk with friends... More

A great place for lunch. They have excellent salads and a full menu. In summer eating pout on the patio under the tree is terrific.

It's a little pricey but so worth it for a celebration dinner! Try the salads they are huge and fantastic.

Stopped here for lunch. Parking is a problem as there aren't many parking spaces around back, but it's worth finding a spot. The patio was open for the summer and a great place to eat,far enough off the road and high fence to keep the road noise down. The food was really good and the service was outstanding even though...
