Weekend Reflections - Grossi Florentino

 
A Collins Street Classic - Romance at its Best
Said by some to be the most romantic restaurant in Melbourne, this beautiful Italian restaurnat at 80 Bourke Street is a master of perfection. If you wish to impress, this is where you go.

Only the best when only the best will do - from the Florentine wall murals to the gleaming chandeliers, with a wall of mirrors on one side. White tablecloths, starched table napkins, cutlery polished so brightly you can see your reflection, opulent and luxurious timber panelling, leatherbound menus and accented waiters who are as efficient as they are charming.

And a wine list that is as extensive as it is expensive - this is the place to take that special someone. Owner and executive chef Guy Grossi and Chef De Cuisine Chris Rodriguez make this one of the best restaurants in Melbourne.
Check out Grossi Florentino and read about their beginning, fascinating murals, menu, wine lists.

Great reflections and what a beaut shop front. I would love to go to that restaurant but it looks exy.

Rob and Mandy said...

Well, next time we're around... We both love italian cuisine, and we're still looking for a restaurant as good as in Italy, but outside of Italy.
I know the address of the best pizzeria in the world ever, if you're interested. Near Venice, in the mountains.
