- Reservations are essential most every night of the week. Even on Mondays, the place is packed to the gills. Walk-in seats are available at the small counter.
- The wine list specializes in local wines as well as Italian varietals, and is organized by price point, starting around $18 all the way up to "special reds" for over two hundred, but the markup is reasonable. Corkage is $16 per bottle.
- Cooking classes are occasionally offered at area wineries, and the chefs wrote a cookbook named after the restaurant.
Trattoria Grappolo is a casual Italian bistro located in the wine-producing region of Santa Ynez, California (2 hours North of Los Angeles). Grappolo is the perfect place to enjoy with family and friends. Walk though the door and a savory aroma of freshly baked pizza and simmering tomato sauce teases the senses. The combination of the pastoral ambiance of Italy with the lush vine fields and oak-studded hills of Santa Ynez helps create the ideal setting to serve up some of Central California's most creative and authentic Italian dishes. Specialties include: Carpaccio, Rollino Veneto - rolled-up pizza pouches stuffed with smoked mozzarella and radicchio - handcrafted pastas and pizzas, aged New York steaks, rack of lamb, and fresh seafood dishes. Desserts such as lavender creme brulee and warm chocolate torte with espresso anglaise are a hit with guests. Trattoria Grappolo features an expansive wine list, and a large VIP wine cellar that accommodates 40 for private parties.
