This is a relatively new addition to the Grand's repertoire, taking the place of Brix, its ambitious European restaurant. Though IT bills itself as an Italian restaurant (IT? Short for Italian! Get it?) it is really a pizza and pasta place. That said, the pastas are of a high quality and though the pizzas could do with a little tweaking, they are generally satisfying. The chef is Indian, which may surprise you, given the authenticity of the pastas.
This is an amazing place if you are looking for authentic and refined Italian food , especially something that is not limited to pizzas and pastas. if you are looking to spend for high quality food this is the place to go to. do try their rock lobster rissotto and the cheese stuffed polenta. though you might be pretty full after your meat do not forget to leave space for desserts, as they do some yummy sweet treats like the lemon tart and amaretto strawberry zuccoto.
