We had such a good time we wanted to return. Tonight was, again, lovely. Mainly locals, the menu very simple with a dish of the day. Service swift but not intrusive. Sitting on the terrace allows us to watch the locals gather to chat and eat / drink. There was a kitten! When night falls the lights go on in the vine roof.
Finally, after paying the very reasonable bill, we were offered complimentary ‘digestif’- grappa and Montenegro all round.
Authentic experience. Welcoming and lovely.

We stopped here on our way to Lenno. Nice hotel and restaurant with outdoor seating, we had a lovely meal on the terrace. Waiters were very nice and helpful.

After climbing up to the Sanctuary we decided we deserved lunch. Found il Grifo by chance. Promptly shown to a table, orders taken and drinks served. Lots of locals which is always a good sign. We had the daily menu of saffron risotto and then an extremely tasty bit of veal on polenta. Generous portions. Nothing fancy but very enjoyable.

We had a rather mixed experience at Grifo. We ate there for lunch and a few days later for dinner. For lunch we tried the fish antipasti and through that got a good overview of the styles of local fish and flavours on offer. As a result, I ordered the spaghetti misultin which is a particular good and ordered it at several other restaurants during our stay, but it was never as good as Griffo's. My partner had the rice and perch fillets. That was delicious. We had great service. Dinner was another story, a friday night, the same good food but the service was chaotic and really rather poor. I guess it was Uncle Basil Faulty's shift that night.

We dropped in on this restaurant on impulse and had a very honest meal ... pasta with tomatoe or ragu as a pre main and Perch in breadcrumbs ... the food tasty, the salad was especially good and a good mix of locals and tourists. It does have its own feel as described in the other reviews but on the whole it was a positive experience.
