An ode to italian cuisine
Il Grano was born from the vision of Rita Fuligna, who has always had a passion for cooking and an infinite love for Italy. The restaurant is a celebration of her Italian roots, a place to share her passion for authentic and traditional cuisine.
Grano, meaning 'wheat' in Italian, represents not only the fundamental ingredient of our cuisine, but also the deep connection with the land and traditions that are at the heart of our philosophy.
"Every gesture, every dish must be made with respect for the products. We represent Italian culture and our cuisine is based on the concept of excellence." - Dario Tosto Executive Chef
CRAFTSMANSHIP, TRADITION AND CREATIVITY
At Il Grano, authenticity and craftsmanship are at the heart of everything we do. Every dish that comes out of our kitchen is a tribute to Italian tradition, prepared with quality ingredients and unparalleled creativity. We make everything in-house, from our crusty bread to our delicious desserts, to ensure an authentic and memorable dining experience.
In 2016, when we opened Il Grano, we decided to introduce Pinsa Romana, an ancestor of modern pizza, to Paris for the first time. This dish quickly gained popularity and established itself as one of the icons of our trattoria.
We carefully select wines, truffles, cheeses, cold cuts, olive oil and other high quality products from Italian producers we know personally. This dedication to quality is reflected in every dish we serve.

A TALENTED TEAM
Our restaurant would not be what it is without our talented team. Among them, Dario Tosto deserves special mention. Having joined the Il Grano team four years ago, at only 22 years of age, Dario has quickly become our chef. His talent, passion and commitment are evident in every dish he creates and are a source of inspiration for all the members of our family.
February 2022 saw the addition of our Restaurant Manager, Angelo Esposito, whose expertise and charisma make every visit a memorable experience.Il Grano is more than a restaurant: it is a community where we celebrate our passion for Italian food and share unforgettable moments. And don’t forget that we are also available for takeaway, Deliveroo, home delivery.
"Italian cuisine is the music of taste, a symphony of flavours and colours in which every note is an ingredient, every movement is a recipe, every dish is a harmony"
