The waitress and "chef" are very friendly. We sat at the bar and watched our meal being heated from pre cooked pastas and pre made sauces. Menu options consist of pick your pasta and sauce. Everything was simple and tasty except for the cold tasteless bread that we were charged an additional $3.00 for. The meal was underwhelming, it is... More

Must.Go. Excellent food. Informal and cozy, definitely not much elbow room, but that's part of the charm. Was fun to sit at the bar and observe the cooking. Will definitely go back.

My wife had been craving Pasta Carbonara for a while now, and we had made a note of Grano when we noticed it on their menu. They are on a corner of the Avenue in Hampden, and they are a lot smaller on the inside than I was expecting. Most of the space is taken up by the counter, but... More

WE often wind up here on cool evenings, to split a bowl of homemade pasta with the special of the night. You cannot beat the fresh anchovies and olives appetizers, great cannolis and super meatballs. Oh and any of the homemade pasta is sinful!

We were there for lunch. I have to admit, no ambiance, but the food was good. There were different pastas and toppings. You could get the toppings w/o the pasta. I didn't see a choice of any whole wheat pastas. Fun for a quick lunch.

Pasta is delicious. It's a small restaurant so you may want to go early if you don't want to wait. Restroom was out of service when we visited. A great local establishment with great food and service. No frills, just delicious.

Fresh made pasta right at the counter and the most pleasant people to chat and laugh with. Pick a sauce pasta etc. Its like asking your mom for your favorite comfort foods.

I ate farfalle carbonara and coconut flan. Both were DELISH! I usually can't order carbonara at restaurants because it is usually made with onions. No onions in this carbonara! The flan was also excellent. Service was good, the food was made quickly. TIP: If you order take-out, make sure to ask for silverware because they don't automatically put it in... More

They call it little Grano because it is very little, but when you go you'll find that it's actually big on taste. I'm writing this review after having been numerous times. If you enjoy pasta you will love this place. Limited seating, but a nice menu of pasta styles and sauces, build your own. It's very casual with reasonable prices,... More

This restaurant is small - about 12-14 seats. The seats are all bar stools and the tables are very tiny. We sat at the bar because there was slightly more space for our food. You choose a sauce and type of pasta. We thought the food was very good and the portions are right-size. It's BYOB. The small size makes... More
