    Even if we booked a table for 6pm, we had to wait up to 15min before our table was ready. Meanwhile the service then was adequate and the food very good so that we just forgot about the delay...

    Took a client here for dinner - downtown Ann Arbor has a lot of available options and I wanted something that was not available in other towns. Gratzi was perfect. It's housed in an old theatre - which creates architectual interest. But the food - oh the food! So so good! And the wine...if you like calamari - you should get it! So tasty - flash fried, no rubberbands, just delish. I had the filet - melt in your mouth - served with a house marinated portobello mushroom, goat cheese and a tomato slice. Seriously good eats.

    Our waiter was the most accommodating, he even came outside when we went to smoke to give us a one-minute warning, then again to hold the door for us when it was ready. He single-handedly made the experience over-the-top with the best service ever, and the food was the absolute best quality, right down to the infamous "perfect cup of coffee" my girlfriend even drank it black because she said she didn't want to ruin it, and she's a lattes drinker, ha ha

    Grazti has been an A2 institution for decades. It is because it delivers every time you go there for a meal. Delicious food with attentive service. There are other reasons to go out for a meal, but those 2 are essentials that Gratzi has always delivered every time for me.

    We had a very, very good dinner, a special occasion, celebrating birthdays in our family. Our waiter was excellent, only thing was he had to be reminded we wanted coffee, but he had gotten quite busy with other tables by then. Our only complaint was when tables were being prepared for other groups coming in, the staff moving the chairs around was so loud we could hardly hear each other! I would suggest that instead of dragging them across the floor they pick them up so that the noise from the chairs wouldn't be so loud.

    My husband and I had dinner at Gratzi's to celebrate his birthday. They graciously provided a beautiful free dessert in his honor. The servers were polite, prompt, unobtrusive, and efficient. The food was amazing. I had the filette, and wanted to finish everything on the plate from the beef to the asparagus, as it was all perfectly cooked and delicious. A wonderful dinner!

    I would not choose to go to Gratzi's again except for the roasted olive appetizer, which was truly excellent. Being a lactose-intolerant vegetarian, I have a very hard time finding interesting items on this menu. My husband and my best friend, however, did enjoy their entrees, especially the chicken marsala. We had a personable and responsive waiter and enjoyed the ambiance, mostly. I wish that Gratzi's would incorporate some simple Italian dishes into their menu like cannellini beans with rosemary or sauteed greens. The broccolini I ordered was excellent, but the portabella mushroom and the soup of the day were truly lackluster and were not worth what we paid for them.

    We like to go out to eat and try different restaurants. We decided on Gratzi and were satisfied. The waiter was very attentive and kept re-filling every couple of minutes on our drinks. The food was excellent and I would definitely go back. We enjoyed the cigar bar downstairs in Dolce Vita and were excited to know that they had one, in our own little city.

    I've dined in many places in Ann Arbor and love trying new places. While Gratzi is not the most unique, mind blowing experience, the food and service has never let me down. Eman, Tom and Andy have always been fantastic hosts. Our most recent visit was for my boyfriends birthday our group of 6 was very happy with the experience. The "team service" approach is really nice and kept a continual flow to our meal. We'll be back!

    We loved the homemade pasta here and the emphasis on fresh ingredients and making everything in house. Service was attentive and food came out quickly give how busy they were on a Saturday night. Fresh Zingerman's bread also appreciated. Although the pasta entries were not inexpensive the portions were good sized. We have always had good food here fit for foodies. Anyone who loves great homemade pasta and inventive cooking including lots of high end fish and veal or lamb on the menu will enjoy this restaurant.

    Five for dinner and everyone was happy with their food and service. It had been a few months since I was there and I think they have elevated their food. The veal chop was excellent as were the scallops on angel-hair pasta. Presentation was excellent. It may be a bit quieter toward the front of the restaurant; the noise level in the front window was very comfortable for talking even at a round table for 6, but it was not a real busy night. Fun to have a live violinist upstairs.
