Diner Reviews
  • "We were first-timers. Loved the food, service, and look of the restaurant. The only negative things I would have to say, are the noise level was pretty high (but what can you do?), and it was definitely too warm in the restaurant. I think ceiling fans in the smaller room would remedy that."

  • "Took my Sister here earlier in the week and the rest of her family showed up later in the week. She raved about how good Gratzzi was so we went back again to cap of their vacation. Didn't have to twist my arm to go twice on one week!"

  • "Delicious, beautifully presented food. Warm, welcoming staff. What else could you wish for?"

  • "Gratzzi's is by far the best downtown STP restaurant. I took my sister here who was visiting from out of town and she wants to go back one more time before she heads home! I highly recommend Gratzzi! Give it a try if you have not had an opportunity to go."

  • "Our meal was perfect except for the noise. A few noise reducers would help. There were times I couldn't hear the person next to me. Great food"

  • "Our first trip to St. Petersburg and were craving Italian food, and Gratzzi Grille fit the bill. Good Italian dish-based menu, and my wife had the special -- truffle-stuffed pasta purses with lobster sauce. I had the gnocchi Pugliese and we were both happy with our choices. We were seated at the windows, but near the bar. Although it was a Thursday night, and we realize it's a college town, it was still WAY too noisy and packed to have a quiet dinner where we were seated."

  • "Food was awesome. Service indifferent. There was an extended wait time for everything. The waiter largely ignored us."

  • "We went in and had the early bird 3 course meal for only $14...absolutely the best Mahi I have ever had! Looking forward to going back!"

  • "Happened to be staying in the area and needed a nice quiet spot to have a birthday dinner. My friends asked me to find somewhere nice but low key & I certainly hit the jackpot at Gratzzi Grille. Even though we were a few minutes late for our reservation, the hostess was calm which put us at ease & we were seated immediately. Our waiter was very knowledgable of the menu and gave us all great suggestions. We enjoyed every course from chicken soup which was served hot and truly delicious, our main courses, and a lovely dessert which they presented my friend who was celebrating her birthday which was enough for my party of three to share. We dined several other restaurants over the weekend and none could compare."

  • "Ask any Tampa Bay local where's a good place to eat 3 out 4 will tell you Gratzzi. After our first visit I know why. It's good. Really good. The food, the service, the atmosphere all good good good. If you're in downtown St. Pete and looking for upscale dining do not miss this place."

  • "Sat in a booth with two other diners. Very noisy dining room for a business dinner, will select another restaurant next time. Food was good but not great. Oyster special appetizer was great. Main course was average. Not sure what the signature dish is but it was not what we ate. Server, Alexis, is awesome. If I go back I'll ask to be seated in her section. She is a great ambassador for Gratzzi Grill. We had chicken parm and sackatini(sp), again it was good but not great. Unfortunately Gratzzi is not my first choice when picking Itilian restaurants."

  • "We are normally late diners, but we had tickets to the Rays game and we decided to eat before the game. THe fix price menu ($14) was more than enough food and it was still up to the quality of Gratzzi's. This is a great option for an early dinner that we will take advantage of again."

  • "My go to place for a great meal with awesome service."

  • "This is our fourth trip to Gazzie. We have broken the code. Scan the menu for ideas and highlights, but listen to the waiter when he tells you the specials. We have found that the specials are so good that any plan with the menu is wasted. The specials are outstanding and large. Beware, if you order a special it is unlikely that you will want an appetizer."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We were seated right on time 5:30. When we realized that the" early bird" menu required that we all be seated by 5:30, our server was able to get us the selections from that menu! Tips probably had a real positive influence on our z attitude. The food was great, Italian, but an unusual spin on the traditional fare offerings. We will dine there again, with a5 o'clock. Reservation."

  • "Have eaten here a few times. It is crowded and noisy but the food is outstanding and the service is very good. The owner, Dominic, has his eyes everywhere and makes sure that his wait staff is on their toes. He makes his own limoncello, which is delicious. We had 2 complimentary glasses sent over for us to enjoy."

  • "Everything is perfection here. Great service, wonderfully fresh ingredients in creative recipes. Don't miss this one when you're in St. Petersburg. This was our 2nd trip to area and 2nd time at restaurant and nota disappointed either time."

  • "As always everything was top notch. Can't say enough about Gratzzi's they are the most consistent across the board on Quality of Food and Excellent Service."

  • "Gratzzi's always serves it up top notch. They never miss a beat from the time you enter the door until the time you leave. They are on top of it - top quality food, top service and great price point."

  • "loved our first visit, but this time not as good- Both the alfredo and the spaghetti were very bland. the Caprese was still great but tomato could have been more ripe. We'll try a third time and hope it's a better experience"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "must try to enjoy the experiences, had the veal , my mom had spaghetti with large meat balls."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Even though I read all the great reviews ahead of time, I was a bit skeptical about Grazzi. First of all I KNOW good Italian food having grown up in New York...and secondly, I'm rather hard to please. Grazzi surpassed all my expectations...great food...wonderful service and quite a nice ambiance. Best Italian food I've had in Tampa bay. ..and overall one of the best restaurants around. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Excellent visited from out of town attending a convention and this was the best choice in restaurants that week. All menu items were excellent...I only hope we have another opportunity to visit this wonderful city and back to Gratzzi again.."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "We have been regular diners for a number of years. We were especially enthusiastic about the early bird offerings. Our last visit was a tremendous disappointment-the price has gone up slightly but worst of all-the menu had changed. Too few options and poor one at that-our favorites are no longer on the menu. It feels as if the early bird is now a "come-on"- if there is nothing appetizing on the menu perhaps you will order from the regular menu. They still offer good wine values but with such a limited early bird menu I'm not sure I'll be back."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "We found ourselves close by to Gratzzi Grille escaping a downpour of rain right before 5:30 pm & appreciated being allowed to order off the early dinner menu for the $14 three course specials. My husband liked his soup while I opted for the generous salad. Spaghetti and cannelloni entrees were both hearty and tasty. Creme brûlée was the featured dessert, a nice finish to the meal."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We reserved for 4:30pm so we could have a leisurely dinner before a concert. It was a Sunday- not many folks there at that time. There is an Early Bird menu for that time and half price drinks during Happy Hour. We elected choices from the regular dinner menu which came with an excellent salad. I had the linguine with seafood and hubby had veal parmesean, which is always his test for an italian restaurant. Service was very good, food was very good, atmosphere was friendly and quick. We enjoyed! There are a few outdoor tables, but we ate inside to watch golf match."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "so many good dishes-- I think the Caprese itself was worth the trip. While I wish they would expand the wine list a bit-- it was still good."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "It would appear that I made a huge mistake, for which I sincerely apologize. I thought I booked for Saturday, but it turns out that I booked this evening in error. My apologies to the owner and the staff. My loss."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Food is fabulous. Our party of four enjoyed a variety of items - Sirloin Marsala, Crab-stuffed shrimp, Curried Chicken Pasta- all were delicious with interesting flavour combinations. The early dinner selection is wonderful as is the price. Great restaurant. Mille grazie ."

  • "Stopped in for lunch this time and had soup salad and pizza. All were excellent and the service, over the top, as usual. Grattzi never disappoints."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The noise level from the bar flowed throughout the dining room making it difficult to hear someone even sitting directly across the table. Outside would have been a much better option but the evening was too cool and there were no radiant heat lamps. The gelato was a poor imitation of true Italian gelato - it lacked an intense flavor and was "grainy". Would not rush back."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Food was excellent. The service was very good. It was busy and very noisy, but we'd go again."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Ate at Gratzzi while vacationing in St Pete. Fantastic dinner and finished my daughters Pesto Chicken Pasta the next day. I'll try that one next time we eat there as it was great right out the fridge (can only imagine when it was just plated). Highly recommended. A little pricey, but worth the cost. Service was great, but not doting. Can't find anything to fault them about."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We dine at Grattzi at least once a week and always enjoy our dinner. We're going back on Saturday, just love it."
