Diner Reviews
  • "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. "

  • "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.."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Food was excellent. The service was very good. It was busy and very noisy, but we'd go again."

  • "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."

  • "We dine at Grattzi at least once a week and always enjoy our dinner. We're going back on Saturday, just love it."

  • "Whether tableside preparation of Cavatelli Bada Bing or Cavatelli with Pesto Sauce (and chicken and sun dried tomatoes), it is always cooked perfectly."

  • "Food is superb, priced a little high but not too high, drinks are overpriced and are a deterrent as some of us like a few drinks....$8.50 fro sambuca??? All in all a good value.."

  • "Overall very satisfied. Table was ready at reservation time. Service was very good with good selection on the "special menu". Food was prepared well and delivered hot. I will be returning to this restaurant."

  • "Having just visited Italy, we were thrilled to find this restaurant.The food is authentic and delicious.I had the veal piccata...I wanted to lick my plate the sauce was so good, and the olive oil they had for dipping was the best I have ever tasted. The risotto was as good as any we had in Italy..which is saying a lot! My husband and I shared the lemoncello cake,, which was a perfect ending to our meal.The place is warm and intimate and our server was knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions. We will definitely be back!  "

  • "As reported by others, the food was very good. Yet, the service we received was below par. Our order was not taken down correctly, so one of the entrees was wrong? Bread wasn't delivered until just before entrees came. At least 20 mins. after appetizers. Also one of our cocktails was barely half full? Plus, it was extremely loud. Overall, it appeared they had a bad night. Which was strange for mid-week. So, we were a little disappointed, though the food was as reported."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "Disappointing experience, with so many other positive reviews. Starting off, the antipasti was only fair, include the pizzelle (pizza dough stuffed with mozzarella and pepperoni) which was flavorless and tough. The (house) salad with house dressing had a funky taste (? dill), but did have crisp vegetables. The lasagna bolognese was so-so, and the spaghettini with sausage faired no better with dry sausage that had little flavor and was overcooked to the point of being tough served in a basic red tomato sauce. At least the service was fairly attentive, and staff very pleasant."

  • "We went for an early dinner and could have stayed (and eaten) all night. Can't wait to come back."

  • "Went there a few months after a couple of friends of mine got married, a belated present. The food was as always wonderful, and the staff incredibly friendly, fun and attentive. Still one of my favorite places in St. Pete"

  • "We've been to Gratzzi several times and find that it's relatively typical Italian cuisine is consistently good. This time around we had saltumboca and pasta with vodka sauce, with a starter of fried calamari. Everything was first rate and promptly served. The wine list is mostly Italian labels and generally reasonable. Nice restaurant which we hope will continue to thrive."

  • "Wonderful authentic inspired Italian homestyle food recipes. Great pizza. Outstanding service with a tableside visit from the proprietor. This is a comfy, warm, hospitable Italian ristorante. A must do for Italian food."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Went for a birthday lunch celebration and although the staff acknowledged this as it was in the booking reservation, nobody wished us a "Happy Birthday ". Service was slow. Appetizers of Fried Calamari and Csesar Salad were good, although the Caesar could have been better with a little more dressing as it was served as a wedge. Pasta dishes not at all special and didn't each much of them."

  • "I love Gratzzi's! I can't say enough about this place. They are consistent in excellent food, service and Management. If you have not been here yet start the New Year right and give them a shot."

  • "Staff was very welcoming upon arrival-service was attentive and food arrived in perfect time. Everyone loved their meals. The noise level is high but I don't mind that on a Holiday -adds to the excitement! Parking could be and issue but we were lucky-do NOT park in the Publics parking lot!!"

  • "We've gone here for two years and its our favorite dinner place. The Bada Bing tableside is spectacular and a creation of the owner. We been seated throughout the restaurnant and been satisfied everywhere. While in the St. Pete downtown where parking can be difficult, the restaurant has an arrangement allowing patrons to park across the street in Level One of the parking garage. Be sure to ask upon arriving for your car window notice to let attendants know you are dining."

  • "We found Grattzi Grille through Trip Advisor and it's amazing reviews. We were a party of four Reservations were a must - thanks open table. Many of the pasta dishes are with homemade pastas and you can tell. There are a variety of sauces and different preperation choices and standards like chicken parmigian are included. Dress is from smart casual to nicer attire if your celebrating. It is a little on the loud side but the second room away from bar area is more quite. Portions are large andwell priced and entress come with soup or salad."

  • "The restaurant was full and the noise level was simply deafening. It precluded any conversation except for shouting and as a result the meal experience was terrible. It is unfortunate since the food and service was pretty decent. Prices are reasonable."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "This place has modern Italian down to a perfect science. The ambiance is Metro European and the food has a clean, clear mission: authentic Italian that presents the pleasure of food without the onus of outright pretention. That is not to say that plates are anything but absolutely beautiful to behold or that menu offerings don't include the sun-saturated tomato and artichoke luxuries of the Mediterranean. Or the cheeses. A very fine blend of tradition and forward trajectory in the kitchen."

  • "Gratzzi was absolutely fabulous! We were first time diners and eager to return. Our server was very professional and extremely nice. The food was delicious, well presented, and moderately priced. The early dinner menu was excellent; great choices and more than reasonably priced."
