Chef Grigo

Chef Grigo is pleased to launch his own boutique restaurant that will focus on bringing the small local restaurant feel from the cobblestone streets of his hometown in northern Italy.

Fresh

In Italy, there is no substitute for eating fresh.  That is why we have partnered with Waxhaw’s organic farmers, Bill and Donna Makuch of Specialty Farmers, Inc. to consistently deliver fresh seasonal produce in our menus.

Unbelievable experience..best Italian ever..better then NY or even in Italy. Chef Gabrielle is the coolest...Would come back here again and again and again and again and again. Highly highly recommended.

Very special place and intimate ambience. Italian cuisine but not your run of the mill pasta place. Was there during restaurant week so good value. Elegantly served and portion size just right. Dessert was chocolate salami! - delizioso

Easily one of Charlotte's best restaurants. This is pure, chef driven, well executed Italian food done really well. It's all about the food and focused table service. The restaurant space itself is not special but that does nothing to detract from the incredible food. Love the charcuterie, it's a must order every time. The chef emerges from the kitchen to prepare special, high quality cheeses and meats. Menu changes often, dishes are unique and well executed and deserts are freshly made and wonderful. Small space so reservations recommended. Love this place!

Great little white table cloth Italian restaurant. Wonderful wait staff. Plus a lovely outdoor patio that is not right on a busy street.
