two out three ain't bad
Since this was Easter Sunday, I expected a madhouse. We were early for our reservations and were seated immediately. Two out of the three of use ordered specials and were very happy with their choices. I ordered the rigatoni with sausage and peppers and didn't think it was very good. The sausage was overdone/dry, the peppers were crisp and the pasta was dry. My soup was lukewarm, but the other diner who ordered soup got it piping hot. We would definitely go back for the pizza which looked great. To be fair, I did not mention my disappointment to our server, so he did not have an opportunity to make things better for me.

The service was great, but the food not as good as usual. Maybe because it was a Monday night.

Great place in Niles!
Graziano's has delicious Italian fare. Their pizza is awesome and they have a fantastic house salad dressing that will help you to eat your veggies. If you are in Niles stop in - you will be glad you did.

We have not dined at Graziano's
We have not dined at Graziano's in a while and was a little surprised with the new menu. We were happy that the missing menu item orrichetta (spelling?0 was still available.
The salad is still the best around.

Graziano's is a family-friendly
Graziano's is a family-friendly italian restaurant in Niles on Touhy, just off 94. Great fo a Sunday dinner, or special occasion, such as mother's day. The portions are plenty and the food is good. The Intelligencia coffe was a nice suprise after dinner.

Enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day
The restaurant was packed for dinner, yet we were seated on-time, service was great and the food was as good as on a quiet evening. Graziano's is always a great value -- one entree easily feeds two people, especially if you have a salad. Regular menu was in place for Mother's Day...no high priced fixed menus.

Something for Everyone!
Graziano's is one of those places we always forget about, but when we remember to go there, we really enjoy it! They have an extensive menu (including a lot of gluten free options--THANK YOU!! This is a real life-saver for us!), and a nice kids' menu. And the portions are more than generous; we took half our food home with us!
Our youngest loves that they give her pizza dough to play with while she waits for her food. Be sure to order the house dressing on your salad--it's the best anywhere--and you can even take a jar home with you! The waitstaff is very friendly and professional. I wouldn't go there for an intimate evening, though--it's more of a vibrant, bustling atmosphere (ie, it's kind of loud. But that's ok!).

We've been going to Graziono's since they first opened, years ago. It's a great neighborhood go-to spot. We have always had consistently good service and food.

Father's Day Meal
Our family visited for Father's Day and to remember a loved ones birthday. Our server was Sam, she did a wonderful job and made us feel welcome. I have been to this place at least 15 times, the food is Great and the servings are large. We took advantage of the all you want to eat soup also. If you like Barbecue Ribs, this is the place to visit. I look forward to the next visit.

Always a pleasure
Love the bottomless salad. Pasta portions are huge so we always get a couple of extra meals at home.

best neighborhood italian restauran

Was surprised we received free appetizers. Pizza was pretty good, but if you're accustomed to authentic Italian, you'll be sorely disappointed. But again, it was good - nothing to complain about, nothing stood out. Cheers!

Always get a decent meal there. Love the bottomless salad. Could make a meal on that alone

Tastey Italian Dishes, Friendly
Always dependable delicious entrees, with generous servings. We always take home leftovers. The grandparents love the appetizers, and grandkids love the desserts. Everyone loves the pasta!!.

The whitefish is always good.
The whitefish is always good. The pizza is also good. They need to work on the salad to make it more interesting.

Celebrated mom's 84th birthday at Graziano's. The food was outstanding, and the service was just as good. Very attentive to the table and it took no time for the food to be ready after being ordered. Highly recommend!

From the pizza to the pasta the food was great. Left overs were also amazing. It was my birthday and we didn't tell them but they put two and two together and brought me an ice cream sundae with a candle. Amazing

Nice Clean Place
We enjoyed our meal. The waitress was friendly. The food was plenty.

Great neighborhood spot
Been coming here 20+ years. Outstanding menu and service. Calamari is terrific. Pizza great. Best item on the menu is the skirt steak, but it is a twelve-way tie for second.

A sure bet for a great meal
Food and service is reliably a cut above the rest.

Absolutely love the house salad dressing. Great portions (huge actually) and reasonable prices. Great food for all. The kids love playing with the pizza dough!

Good food and Service
We had a very pleasant meal here on Saturday night. The staff is very accommodating from the hosts to the servers. We were waited on quickly, drinks brought right away, and the waitress was available to take our orders, check on us and make sure all was well. We were served bruschetta as soon as we were seated--a complimentary appetizer and quite delicious. The salad was sizable and very good. The only thing I didn't like very well is that the restaurant is very loud, but not so much that we couldn't hear each other or have to raise our voices. All in all, a good restaurant, and we'll be back.

Great Local Spot
Always enjoy the dining company of family and friends at Graziano's. Have been going here since it opened. Even though I have since moved further north, don't mind the drive to meet up at Graziano's. Once I hosted a Group Luncheon and all went well. Food presentation, taste, servings, molto bene! Some of us miss the Family Style Salad Bowl! Had the Spinach Lentil soup on Sunday! Very tasty, not salty. The roast chicken lasted several meals after the original serving. LIke I said, Graziano's is a great local spot!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice spot, good food, excellent service. I was travelling with 3 business associates. We all enjoyed our meals. Portions are plentiful and pricing is very good. I will definitely go back.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is, and has been for about 20 years, our family go-to restaurant. Excellent menu and good gluten-free selections.

Service was as good as the food. We were not rushed. Everything was perfect. THE SALAD IS THE BEST.

Always consistent... Great Place!!!
I live in Chicago but make a point of going to Grazianos once a month. The food is always consistent, the service is top shelf, great atmosphere. We usually come here with family , sometimes 4-10 people and the staff is very accommodating.
They have great pizzas, the hose salad has the best dressing, wish they could sell it, I would definitely buy bottles of it.
My 12 year old daughter always gets their half wood roasted chicken which is to die for. We have been coming here for almost 10 years and never had a bad experience!

Marvelous neighborhood restaurant!
Food was excellent and portions were large - everyone had take-home containers! Chicken Limonese was extremely tender and the sauce was delicious. We were a party of 6 and we were all in agreement on the wonderful food and service. The salads at Grazianos are large enough to share for 2 and full of "goodies". The breads were served hot and very tasty. Our group decided to share 1 serving of spumoni with 6 spoons and our waitress brought us a very wide parfait glass filled with spumoni and 6 spoons, which went around the table 4 times. Prices are moderate.
Highly recommended for any time!. Maxie

family friendly + good food!
Grazianos is perfect for a family gathering. There is a nice range of food choices for even the pickiest of eaters, and the atmosphere is perfect for energetic children who prefer to move around. Also, everybody who helped us was so attentive and personable. I look forward to returning again soon. To top it off, I had leftovers for 2 days!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've been coming here for many, many years. The food is predictably great. The salad is my favorite. Once I start to think about it, I have to come and have it. That is usually followed by one of the pasta dishes. Really the best spaghetti and meat sauce around. The price is fair and the service is good.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good "family" place for good food!
Graziano's is NOT a place to go for ambiance or a romantic dinner! What it IS good for is very good food (wonderful little pizzas) - pasta, chicken, all the "standards", and LOTS of food. The waitstaff does a great job accommodating diners and dealing with large parties, families, etc. It's our neighborhood "go to" for consistency and carryout.

The food was very good. They had a nice selection of Italian dishes as well as some standard American items. I would recommend it for a causal evening out.

Tremendous Turkey and Trimmings
We visited on Thanksgiving afternoon. With a reservation, our group was promptly seated. Even though the restaurant was very busy, the service was very prompt and attentive. The turkey and all of the side items were juicy and tasty. Great experience!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and atmoshpere
We visited on Thanksgiving and my husband ordered the turkey special. Several choices were available as a part of the special and he said that the meal was spectacular. The plate was enormous and he took leftovers home. I am a vegetarian and enjoy the fact that the restaurant has many options. I had the butternut squash raviloi that was one of the daily specials and it was wondeful. The server was very attentive and helpful.
