Grana Restaurant Review: While plenty of places in nearby 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 gourmet, wood-fired pies. Pizzas are garnished with a variety of local and specialty ingredients and baked in a brick oven, giving them a crispy crust. The Rosa Bianca is topped with local potatoes, red onion, Parmesan and rosemary, while the Frenchie is made with caramelized onions, black olives and imported anchovies. A selection of regional pastas including ravioli filled with caramelized pears and chopped walnuts or pasta with Sicilian almond and herb pesto are also on offer. Quality varies on occasion; while the seasonal products are always good, they are sometimes sparse, and the pizzas may be too doughy to be able to pick up and eat by the slice. Choose something from the affordable wine list to complement your meal. Service is adequate, bordering on aloof.
