Food great; coffee NOT...4 stars!Have been here several times Food is always very good and prepared in inventive ways. Service was a bit slow this last time and we both ordered specials so don;t know what to think about that. The only criticism I have is regarding the coffee. It was old tasting and required a lot of cream to lighten. On another visit I ordered espresso and received what looked like a thimbleful of espressso. When I complained, the waiter told me to next time order a double. I won;t be ordering coffee at all...what's up with getting a good cup of coffee out?5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice eveningWe me some friends for dinner that had never been here before. The food and the service were very good! They too will now be back!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBest eggplant I've had inBest eggplant I've had in a while. Will definitely go back.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCouldn't Have Been BetterWe really hadn't planned on traditional Italian and were very pleasantly surprised at the depth of the menu and the very gourmet and lighter choices available to dine on the lighter side and have the perfect lunch. The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Perfect carpaccio.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen there three times nowBeen there three times now and with every visit it gets better and better.
Items on the menu are absolutely delish. I look forward to every visit in hopes I will be able to taste everything on the menu. It is truly a piece of heaven...5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMalways greatGratzzi never disappoints. Great food, great service, everything was awesome. One of my favorites. Much better than its old location.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and serviceFood was delicious and service was very good. We had a great time4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMToo much of a good thing?My only complaint is that there were so many people in the room they put us in initially (which is quite a nice room) that the noise level was unbearable. We asked and were immediately reseated in a somewhat less nice area (outside the corridor leading to the washrooms) but at least we could hear each other. Hard to criticize a restaurant for being too popular. The food was, as always, excellent and our waitress attentive and helpful.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service.Great food, great service. Wine and food portions are very generous. Order Bada Bing for an appetizer to share! We'll return--- :)4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways tops on my listI am a regular at Gratzzi and will continue to be. They are bar far the most consistent restaurant that I know of. From the quality and selection of food to the service from the moment you step in the door to the moment you leave.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, great serverWonderful food, great server and excellent wines.
Terrific evening.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGratzzi: a gem!My favorite restaurant in St Pete: Gratzzi Grille! Be sure to try the Bada Bing pasta, which they make right by your table, as an appetizer for your whole group -- if you're three or more. It's delicious, made in a wheel of parmesan that they bring right to you. A little rich as the primary course, but great as an appetizer. We always feel treated well there, as if they are eager to accommodate our tastes. Wonderful house salad. Tasty soup. I love having a meatball and sausage with their red sauce over whole wheat pasta. Or their fish, always fresh -- and with a great garlic tomato sauce. Consistently a tasty meal, and a nice ambiance. Occasionally a little noisy. I prefer sitting in a booth.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the scallopsFood was wonderful. Best scallops I've had in a long while. Fantastic service and romantic atmosphere. Will go back next time we're in St. Pete.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as Little Italy in NYCI'm a New Yorker and regularly eat at terrific Italian restaurants. Gratzzi is as good as the best restaurant's in NY's Little Italy! From start to finish, the dining experience was superb. We were celebrating my mother's 92nd birthday and my aunt's 90th birthday and the staff was appropriately attentive, the food was excellent (don't miss the mushrooms stuffed with crab meat and covered with melted parmesan cheese) and the wine list was substantial and very reasonably prices. The house-made pasta was excellent. Three of us had a delicious pasta entree which had tiny baskets of delicate pasta filled with house-made ricotta cheese, large scallops, crabmeat and a very light cream sauce. Also, the service was truly outstanding!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGratzzi's My go to eat place!Gratzzi's is the one place in Downtown St. Pete that I make a point to eat at.

I was on vacation in Treasure Island and found this restaurant on Open table. It was well worth the trip to down town St Pete. Best Italian wedding soup I ever tasted.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian in TownExcellent chow here.... everything you would want in a neighborhood Italian restaurant. This place is real Italian, not fussy... and prices are very moderate considering the quality... also, most dished come with a salad or soup. Definitely try the Italian wedding soup... maybe the best thing I had there... amazingly good. We had to try the Bada Bing Pasta... we shared it as an app... it's all it's cracked up to be... great concept and so good... highly recommended. Only the duck entree was so so.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always Gratzzi's food,As always Gratzzi's food, service and vibe were impeccable.
