Grana Restaurant Review

: While plenty of places in neighboring New York City offer good pizza, Long Island isn’t so fortunate. Luckily, there’s Grana, a simple restaurant with just a handful of tables and a chalkboard menu detailing specials and gourmet pies. Pizzas are garnished with a variety of local and specialty ingredients and baked in a brick oven, giving them a crispy crust. The “NoFo” is topped with sweet fennel sausage, homemade mozzarella and roasted onions; the house specialty “Grana” is a white pizza anointed with arugula. Quality varies on occasion; while the seasonal products are always tasty, they are sometimes sparse, and the pizzas may be too doughy (thanks to that wood-fired oven) to be able to pick up and eat by the slice. Before you explore the pizzas, however, consider starting with the mozzarella and tomato salad, if it’s available. Choose something from the affordable wine list to complement your meal. Service is adequate, bordering on aloof.
