    The facility is quite noisy and conversation is difficult. Menu has variety. Food is nothing spectacular but not horrible. Service was a bit slow. Prices seemed a bit high for the overall experience.

    Graziano's never disappoints! I love the food and the ambiance. What a nice surprise to receive a free bruschetta appetizer. Service can improve, but I think some of the staff are in training so no big deal.

    We order carry out on a regular basis. This was our first visit since the remodeling. We were disappointed to see that the interior was basically same, really noisy room. Our waitress, Nicole, was a very nice girl. It appeared that she was fairly new to waitressing and/or Graziano's. We both tried one of the Specials. The pasta with Veggie meatballs was good. The agnolotti with chicken, spinach and mushrooms was OK. The pasta was tough. The filling texture was off putting due to the chicken chunks and large pieces of lemon rind. We will order or visit there again but will stick with our favorites.

    I have eaten here numerous times and have also ordered catering trays from them a couple of times. Their food is consistently good at a reasonable price. The place is quite large and rather industrial. There is a large back room area where they can handle large groups easily, a bar with a view of their brick fire pizza oven, and a main dining room with tables and some very comfortable booths. They have a large menu. Individual pizzas are huge, so plan to share. Salads are fresh. Sandwiches are large. You won't go away hungry! They have delicious pasta dishes, great wood roasted chicken and more. Service is good. Accessible throughout, including bathrooms

    Graziano's is our neighborhood 'go to' restaurant. The food is always delicious, we especially love the salad that comes with the meal. We've brought many out of town guests here and when they come back to visit us, always want to go back to Graziano's. They have a great regular food menu and the daily specials are also great.

    Loved the food, the service and great parking! During high lunch time a bit noisy, but to be expected as the number of diners increased. We were visiting with someone we hadn't seen in along time. Never felt rushed to order or to finish up in spite of the lunch crowd. Great gathering place!

    We got there a little before the lunch rush and boy was it a rush!! the service and food was still delivered on time even though the place was hopping. Great food. I got the turkey club which I was worried about because Italian places are not known for their club sandwiches. huge serving sizes we nice size.

    Wasn't that thrilled with the food... cesar salad was very bland very little dressing and just lettuce with a few croutons. My pasta was drenched in cream sauce, although it was tasty it wasn't very appealing and I had to scrape off alot of the sauce. Been there before and thought it was good but don't think I'll be back - too many other good restaurants around

    The food was good but rather pricey! The chefs making the pizza were very friendly and even gave my younger brother a ball of pizza dough to play with himself. The waitress didn't know her information very well and said the 16 inch pizza fed 2 people. This was definitely not the case it was huge and could easily feed 4, we would have been fine with the 10 inch pizza. The waitress really made my entire family feel rushed. She came back too often and too quick. She took our plates away without asking quite often. If it wasn't for the mandatory 18% tip for our group size our tip would certainly not have been as high. The service did not warrant it whatsoever.

    Been eating here occasionally since they opened, because it's near my Mom's house & she liked it. I've noticed in the past couple of years that things have been going downhill in regards to food quality. Their food used to be really good (not quite great), but now it's become bad & bland. Overcooked, dry chicken.- really bland sauce & dry Veal, combined with poor, slow service has now put this restaurant on the "Do not return" list.

    This is a great place for good food and service. It is very kid-friendly and perfect for birthday get-togethers, office outings, etc. It is rather noisy and not a place to go for a quiet, intimate meal but if you're just looking for really good, fresh food and very good service at reasonable prices, Graziano's is your place!

    We went there for Easter dinner. The place was not too crowded. Very nice décor. Nice assortment of bread on the table, which we dipped in the olive oil and added some parmesan cheese. Yum! We ordered the fried calamari for appetizers. Very tender and delicious. The seafood dishes were very good. The pasta servings are plentiful. Rib Eye Steak huge! I had the butternut squash ravioli special, which was heavenly. The kids like watching the pizza being made. Love the bottomless soup or salad that comes with the pasta dishes. Their minestrone is perfect. Cream of mushroom soup was very tasty too. We go here all the time for Italian food in the area. Highly recommend this place.

    Every bit of my night was done perfectly. Tricia was very attentive and took good care of us. Graziano's is great for families or a casual date for two (or three, if that's your thing). The food came out hot and quickly and was absolutely delicious. My family came here for special occasions when I was a kid, and everyone loved it then, too.

    The food was great. I've been to Grazianos many times over the years. We had two different servers. I had asked the first server a question. Unfortunately she spoke very softly and could not be heard over the conversations by those around us. Her shift ended and a different server took over. Whole she was extremely pleasant and efficient I felt she was overly attentive. Every 5 minutes or so she came to the table to ask how things were. It was difficult to have a conversation between the numerous interruptions and the noise of those around us. It's the food that keeps me coming bank.

    Enjoyed the salad and our entres. Cocktails were good too. This was a Saturday night about 7pm. The restaurant was filled. The noise level prevented us from hearing each other across the booth.. i would reccommend the restaurant for its food and service but maybe for lunch or brunch at which time the noise level would be somewhat moderated.
