Il Grano

Il Grano's contemporary Italian cuisine is served in a comfortable and modern atmosphere. Chef Sal Marino's top quality seafood, produce from local organic farms and his own garden, and all natural meats are the basis for the authentic Italian cuisine which has earned him a James Beard nominee for Best Chef and recognition by Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Gourmet, Wine Spectator, Angeleno, LA Times and more. Seasonal menus, spectacular seafood tasting dinners beginning with the signature crudo-raw impeccably fresh fish (LA Times), the ever changing popular vegetarian tasting menu (culminating with Tomato Wednesday starting in July highlighting over 40 varieties of heirloom tomatoes grown in his garden) assure you a wonderfully different experience each visit. Award winning Wine Spectator wine list with 1,000 selections including over 100 wines under $60.

"The owner and Chef grows his own organic tomatoes (the best), vegetables, herbs etc. and everything that he doesn't grow comes from the best Farmers markets.
The food is delicious, the room is quiet enough that you can have actual conversations. The servers vary but most are quite pleasant.
I would and have recommend (ed) it to a number of people.
The location is bad for his business. Its not out of the way, its just in a dark part of the neighborhood with nothing much around it.
I think it may have closed which is very sad. I hope that he is opening it again at a different location.

"I've come for his marvelous tomato dinners. I've brought friends and work colleagues to talk about difficult times and good times. The place has always been exceptional. Now I can say, I was there for his last serving...This is heartbreaking..."

"We arrived 10 minutes early, but they graciously let us in and made us a perfect negroni and a perfect manhattan!! Service was warm and attentive. The crude was really special with creative smears that accentuated the flavor of the fish. My husband had the best pasta with wild mushrooms I have ever had while I reveled in the pasta with uni. We left purring and yet mourning the closing of this neighborhood gem. Too bad the greed of landlords is closing so many businesses."

"Il Grano is closing. Sal is taking his talents to another place. But the freshness and quality of the ingredients will continue for a few more weeks to be enhanced and made sublime by Sal's hand. Burrata was terrific. I am an octopus lover and this was the best ever. And who does not like the salt-baked branzino. Desserts were great too. A Sancerre Rose was a very interesting and good find on the wine list (though the sommelier/maitre d' said it was the last bottle). It was a great date made even better by the outstanding meal. Sal, tell us where you are going."

"We had our own room, which was great. The food here was simple yet flavorful. The cod was excellent as well as the heirloom salad. The service was fantastic! Appreciated the chef providing a complimentary app as well as coming out to greet us at the end of the meal. A fantastic business lunch experience."

"I'm so sorry that Sal has decided to move on to other ventures. Il Grano has been a wonderful place for a delicious dinner in a civilized atmosphere that's harder and harder to find in an LA that swoons for crowds and high decibels. Get there before it closes!"

"Conveniently located just off the 405 in west LA, with easy parking, Il Grano consistently delivers great food and service. I have eaten lunch and dinner for personal and business occasions. The chef uses only the freshest ingredients, including from his own garden, and you can tell the difference. He has a light touch, bringing out the wonderful natural flavors, but elevating them at the same time. The menu changes depending on what is in season and available fresh."

"Il Grano is very veg friendly, and celebrates the chef's own garden. Fabulous tasting menus are available, along with a la carte items and excellent wines. It is quiet and focused on great food. There is public parking around the corner. I hope to go back often!"

"Had a new client on the westside and booked Il Grano via OpenTable. We ordered from the crudo menu -- the ahi was outstanding, seasoned perfectly. The owner and chef (Salvatore) came to our table and could not have been more friendly and told some great stories about his family. Anyway, great place on the westside!"

"We went for lunch on a weekday because we thought the food would be good and the restaurant quiet for visiting. It took 20 min. to get menus and another 15 to order. Our food finally arrived one hour after we did. Those who ordered pasta said it was OK. I ordered salmon which was red abd uncooked in the center and sent it back to be further cooked. It didn't come back to me until my companions were almost finished with lunch and when it did it was heavily salted. I paid $24 for about 2 oz. of salman with green and white beans (the white tasted canned). Tiny rolls the size of a newborn's fist allowed about 3 bites. Service was excruxiatingly slow and labored.
Meanwhile, the restaurant was very loud so, at times, it wasn't possible to hear our attempts to talk to one another. Never again - there are too many restaurants where the food and service are excellent and at which they respect their customers enough to accomodate their wish to converse with friends."

"Tomato Wednesdays are unusually good. Some of the best tomatoes I ever tasted are grown in the chef's garden with outstanding dishes to choose among."
