This was overall a very disappointing dish considering the price. First, it was not hot when it arrived at our table. Secondly, most of the shells were empty. Thirdly, one of my friends said the soup base was very thin and lacked any real flavour.
These were very crispy and hot. I especially loved the fried seaweed that complemented this dish. The portion was excellent too. However, what impressed me the most was the decision to serve this dish with a light mustard as opposed to the traditional tartar sauce. The combination was refreshing and splendid.
I think all my friends would agree that this was the best dish of the evening. The striking black colour of the fettuccine from the squid ink made the presentation of this course most appealing. The overall combination of all the ingredients was perfect. The sauce was very creamy, and an abundant number prawns was cooked into the dish, which was lovely. The prawns were big and well cooked. An excellent dish.
This was not too creamy, but I thought it lacked sufficient bacon bits. It was good, but not brilliant, and it was not very hot.
This dish is served with a plentiful amount of seafood. The risotto is cooked very well, very chewy and the sauce is not overpowering. The overall combination is excellent and the taste is impeccable.
The presentation of this was not very appealing. There appears to be large chunks of seafood everywhere, and the tomato sauce was very sour. Once again, this dish was not piping hot when it was served. When I have had this before, it was much better.
The pizza was quite small, but it was nice and hot. One friend commented that it was over-seasoned. The parma ham was applied nicely to the pizza, in that it did not fall off easily. Another comment is that if you do not like black olives, this pizza is not for you.
Overall, I had a great time with my friends. Some of the dishes were disappointing, but most of the food was decent. I will definitely come back though, because I have many other dishes which I still really enjoy.
Supplementary Information:The great thing about Grappa's is that you have the option to change your pasta to whole wheat if you want. All you have to do is ask your waiter and they will happily answer your request. I think its wonderful that you can have the option to be more healthy.
