I made a visit to Trattoria Grappolo after a long absence and found the food and service still worth traveling to Santa Ynez to enjoy. They have an extensive wine list as well.

Although the food and service are above average at the location, i do feel this restaurant is over priced. Lets be realistic, it is fairly inexpensive to make pasta and a few sauces, however, i do not think there is any meal here for less...More

We eat here at least a month, and always enjoy the food and service. The outside porch is much quieter than the crowded indoor dining room. Rustic and friendly

It was a delight when it first opened. The food was excellent. Somehow, it’s lost some of its charm. I would still highly recommend good Italian food. Pretty noisy place And can get very crowded.

The main reason we return as often as possible is because Grappolo's is an all around great Italian trattoria. For us it's a seventy mile round trip but the experience is always pleasant and delicious! We were greeted warmly and seated at 5:30 comfortably before...More

While the wine list is mostly local Santa Barbara, Central Cal and some popular Italian, you don't go there for the wine, it simply has great ambiance! Super busy most days of the week with large tables and rooms for... More
