Vineyard scene. Reminds you how they make that wine your currently tasting. Hmmmmm..feet...
I realize that I have an unsatiable need to take a picture of the ceiling of every restaurant I've been to.
Hmmm..wonder what Freud says about this. =D
Very frendly staff
To start off, complimentary bread with pate.
Good thing I love liver!
I am very wary of restaurants who provide complimentary (READ: FREE!!!) appetizers, since it generally means there is a long wait ahead of you before the main course. I might be wrong though, but tell that to the restos I've been too. Nevertheless, Grappa's did very well on this simple appetizer.
Our medley of drinks, plus shots of beer!
Fruit shakes cost Php120. I had the 4 seasons and it was a good thirst quencher.
Grappa's also offers Piro Praha beers (dark and light) for Php60 to 210. Not sure if you want one? Request for a taste test first before ordering.
The good thing about eating in huge groups is you get a chance to sample a lot of courses.
Prosciutto Mango (Php420)
Prosciutto Crudo al Melone (Php420)
Both dishes are fruit (in this case, mango and melon) slices wrapped in Parma ham and served with gorgonzola cheese. Separately, the ham and the cheese are not much to my liking. However, pair them up with the fruits...heavenly!
We also had quite a number of pastas and pizzas.
Ravioli di Spinaci E Ricotta (Php310)
Dish comprised of Spanish ricotta, white wine and cheese
Fettuccini con Gamberetti E Funghi (Php450)
Pasta with shrimps and assorted mushrooms
Linguine Tutto Mare (Php380)
Pasta with assorted seafood in tomato sauce
Pizza Clarissa (Php460)
Tomato and mozerella pizza topped with greens
Pizza alla Siccia (Php450)
Homemade sausage, salami, tomato and cheese pizza
The pasta dishes were superb. Ingredients used were so fresh. I especially loved the Fettuccini con Gamberetti E Funghi. The pizzas though, another thing all together. Equally good and such a refreshing take.
Grappa's also has one of the BEST creative restrooms I've seen thus far. The walls are literally covered in old Spanish magazine pages. Maybe has a dual purpose?
Grappa's is located at the following branches:
