Grana Trattoria in Jamesport. (Photo credit: Victoria Caruso)

Authentic Italian cuisine and a charming setting makes for a delicious dining experience

THE GIST: Founded by David and Nancy Plath in 2010, this Jamesport mainstay embodies the ethos of Italian cooking, using fresh, simple ingredients. Grana’s menu takes patrons across Italy, specializing in region-specific cuisine and American classics served in a cozy atmosphere.

THE VIBE: With fewer than a dozen tables inside, the intimate, rustic setting is akin to a tradi- tional trattoria. Italian charm permeates the space, with wooden and mosaic-style tables and colorful posters of Italian cities. A focal point of the space is a long wooden bar, which gives diners a prime view of the wood- fired pizzas crafted in the trattoria’s brick oven. In the warmer months, guests can also dine alfresco under big red umbrellas tucked away on a charming patio.

THE FOOD: Grana’s menu tips toward seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Each dish reflects the owners’ inspiration from their travels across Italy and the United States. Renowned for their freshly-made pastas and wood-fired pizzas, Grana uses premium unbleached and organic flours, organic tomato sauce and daily house-made mozzarella to create each pie. Diners will also find cicchetti, small bites like seasonal vegetable fritters, fried calamari and grilled octopus, as well as organic green salads and main courses featuring chicken or veal.
