The service was a little off, but mainly because the restaurant was very busy. Most of the tables were full and there was a special group in the back. A lot regulars were there I think. People go because the food is good and and value is great. My wife and I are going back.

Food and service is always wonderful when we go to Cafe Graziella. We have been going here for many years and have had large family parties there also. They are easy to work with and always very accommodating.

Great staff, food was disappointing. The calamari was not that good, and such small portions as the old joke goes. My husband did not enjoy his chicken dish (I think it was Sorrentina) The seafood risotto was a good size portion, but the seafood choices (gummy calamari, tiny shrimp, tiny clams, mussels, bay scallops) were lacking flavor and not cleaned properly. Risotto should not be sandy. The dessert (limoncello cake and lemon sorbet)and cappucino were outstanding though.

A lovely evening. We really like a BYOB restaurant like this. The complementary bruschetta was excellent. We started with clams in white wine and garlic. The variety was called Mediterranean and were small and sweet. The bread helped sop up some of the sauce. Entrees were lobster ravioli and veal cutlet simply breaded. We could not resist the ricotta cheese cake for dessert.

Menu has been the same for a long time. Lots of good choices and specials for the day. I ordered a special which was Branzino which was a good size dinner but fish was overcooked. Probably will go back again.

Don't judge this book by the cover. The outside isn't impressive, but the food - which is why you go to a restaurant -is. Sunday was our first visit, and we were impressed. The pappardelle, Caesar salad and mushroom appetizers were excellent, as were our shrimp, veal and pasta entrees. Try the lemon cake for dessert.

Cafe Graziella has been a favorite of ours for years. The service is exceptional, the menu expansive and the food is excellent. We love the cozy atmosphere and quiet ambience. Our go to appetizers are mozzarella en corazza and provola affumicata.

We decided to have an early Valentine's dinner. I went onto Open Table and was able to make a reservation for that same evening. We arrived and were sitted immediately, adequately from other diners. The staff was attentive but didn't rush us. Everything was delicious and we'll definitely be going back soon.

We had a wonderful dinner Saturday night. You have done a wonderful job providing a safe dining experience. The only recommendation I would make is to dim the lights a bit in the second room and play nice background music.

Table was not reserved for our party when we arrived, not enough waiters, staff was working hard but because of the number of tables they had to take care, the service was mediocre. Food was generally good, reasonable pricing.

Wonderful, I rediscovered this local gem two weeks ago when returning home from my daughter’s house. I was in the mood for good Italian food. I often would pass the restaurant and think to myself-I have to get back to that place. You see, the last time I ate at Cafe Graziella up until two weeks ago was back in 2004. I had a great experience then. I don’t know why it took me so long to go back. I am happy I did. So happy in fact that my girlfriend and I returned the following Wednesday for another fabulous dinner. Vincenzo is always a gracious host and the service very attentive. I also love that it’s a BYOB.

Second time we’ve been here! Six of us ate outdoors due to Covid so the ambience was just ok — in the parking lot. However, our waiter, Alberto, was personable yet knowledgeable, efficient and professional. Everyone’s meal was delicious. Bread was authentically Italia — crusty on the outside yet airy on the inside. You gotta go!
