The restaurant features simple good cooking, using the freshest whole foods available, a pizza bar and a full liquor bar. The owners - the Domanti and the Da Prato families who bring decades of expertise to Il Grissino - have tapped Simone Mua to serve as chef...Chef Mua grew up in Milan and launched into the family restaurant business at a young age. He was formerly executive chef at the acclaimed Ribot Ristorante in Milan before moving to Miami...The result is a fine dining experience at reasonable prices in a comfortable, casual setting -- perfect for bringing convivial company together over a fine meal and drinks.
