    Decided to try the place based on other reviews, and they were right. The food was great and the service was excellent (the service was among the very best I have experienced in the Seattle area in years). We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation time (traffic is so unpredictable in Seattle) but they seated us immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to eat there again.

    I will agree with the other reviews that the lighting was pretty dark especially on a bright day. I had to use my flashlight app to read the menu. Everything else was great. The food was very good and we both had boxes to take home with us. And the service was exactly enough. I would definitely return.

    Love the food here, but on multiple occasions I've found that the service varies between very attentive to pushy to indifferent. By "pushy", I mean that main courses were served before we were even done with our salads. (this is a major peeve of mine, I don't like feeling rushed by the waitstaff)

    I wasn't familiar with the Southcenter area and found Grazie Ristorante online. It had high reviews and I needed a good meeting spot for a first date. The location isn't the best but I found it fine. The great part about this place is the service and food. I liked that they offer small plates. Even the small plates were a lot of food...nice to share. The inside is on the small side and a little too dark.

    I had a small group of my organization's leadership at an airport property for a meeting, and needed someplace nice yet casual - needed good food, wine and service, but didn't want a really formal venue or a loooong meal (we were on east-coast time). Found this place online with good reviews, and liked that it is family owned/operated. Really appreciated that they called me when we were running late to make sure we were still coming before giving our table to someone else - lots of places would just give it away. Prices were reasonable, the food was enjoyed by all, and the service was both very efficient and very friendly at the same time.

    We've been to Grazie a few times and each time seems better than the time before. A great date type of restaurant, the portions are perfect, the staff courteous and responsive and the atmosphere delightful. The dining room is small and the parking lot tight, but they do a great job making the best of the space with decorations, mood lighting, and partitions. It can get loud when it's full inside, so go early if you want a quite meal. The prices are pretty reasonable considering the quality you get...in my opinion, you get what you pay for.

    We were seated quickly and our server greeted us immediately and offered drinks while we looked at menu. She knowledgeably answered questions about the items, made a couple of suggestions, and got our first course to us without our waiting. Without being intrusive, it was obvious she was paying attention, because she removed our salad plates, and our main course was brought as we were ready. Food was delightful! Tasty, full of flavor, and just the right size! Unfortunately (or not), we were full and could not enjoy what looked like delicious desserts. All in all, it was a nice evening with good friends over good food. The down side was the noise level in the restaurant. While it was "energetic" it was loud for intimate conversation.

Everything was perfect and the server was awesome. We will be back!

    Just enjoyed my fourth visit to Grazie Ristorante @ Southcenter and continue to be delighted. The Fromaggio Arabiatta is a wonderful spicy, party in your mouth, with it's pepper-infused olive oil drizzle over warm mozzarella and goat cheese. The special Seafood mixed grill, featuring shrimp, calamari and some outstandingly fresh and well-cooked halibut, was really well matched with a light lemon sauce and some perfectly-sauteed spinach. One of the best things about Grazie, where I visit when I'm at SeaTac on business, is the wait staff. Everyone there seems to genuinely care that I have a nice meal and it shows. Good training, good support, good management. I'll be back, again.

    This restaurant serves tasty Italian themed dinners in an intimate atmosphere. It is located in the strip mall next to Car Toys. Once inside the restaurant, though, the ambiance takes you away from the strip mall. I often meet friends there who live in Seattle ( I live south) and we always have excellent service and great food. Great spot to meet friends as you are never hurried along.

    I had a favorite italian restaurant back east(close to DC) in a not so beautiful location. Once you stepped inside the restaurant, you were treated to fabulous food, with great service. I thought I would never find such a place south of Seattle. Not soon after I moved here seven years ago, we accidentally stumbled upon Grazie's while shopping. Our fist meals there (LUNCH) was a delightful surprise. I have yet to find a place that comes clue to the Grazie experience. I often go into Seattle for great meals but given the choice, I would prefer to eat at Grazie.

Jorge has always been welcoming and gracious. We always recommend Grazie when friends are in the area.

    I don't know who is at fault here, but I made an opentable reservation for two at 6:30 for our wedding anniversary and there was no record of a reservation in Grazie's computer system. We arrived a few minutes early to check in, and instead had to wait 40 minutes to be seated. To add insult to injury, the restaurant wouldn't seat us in the one open table because it was a four seater and was reserved for someone else... we had reservations!
