We felt very safe with all their extra efforts, dining outside, touchless menus, all wearing masks and safe distancing. Great job!

Cold food. Bad service. Wish we would have went next door to the chop house for a $200 dinner. Never again.

The only thing that kept the food from being outstanding was the wild mushroom pizza that had hardly any topping and was burned (black on 1/3 of it). My son chose not to send it back. The rest was fabulous: The tuna is always amazing and I'm so glad the chef added the butter-poached leeks back to the recipe. The porcini purses with cream and proscuitto are the best pasta I've ever had. I've had both of these dishes many times. My daughter loved the fried ravioli. The eggplant parmesan looked great too (I didn't taste it). Gratzi is the most consistently delicious restaurant and they have a terrific bday deal!

One of the best restaurants we’ve been to in a long time! Instantly became one of our favorites. The staff was very helpful and made some excellent recommendations. The old theatre setting was very tasteful and the food was absolutely delicious.

Wonderful dining experience! Our waiter was top notch in all of our needs. However management would not turn on light source that was next to our table. Told our waiter to bring candles!! Wonderful meal, however it was hard to see my spouse for our 21 yr anniversary because it was so dark.

I just had calamari and a salad. Portions were small and just okay. The pear and Gorgonzola salad had one slice of pear and one pea size bite of cheese. The calamari weren’t breaded well and were a tiny grouping on a bread plate.

We go to Gratzi for special times and as a break from the ordinary. Alex or server was excellent and attentive. The only problem was the food.
The Caesar Salad was as expected and then came the food. I ordered the dish that features eggplant stacked with mozzarella and a side of spaghetti with Marinara (Melanzana alla Parmigiana )
I could smell the dish before it reached the table, and thought the manager had gone out and smoked a cigarette prior to serving the dish, however it was not the manager, but the dish itself! It had so much smoke flavor to it that it literally smelled like a cigarette. It tasted of smoke as well. Needless to say i did not finish the dish. I did not complain to the management because i did not want to embarrass my companion, since this was a special date for us.
His entree was better than mine but a smaller portion than in the past...he had the shrimp dish with goat cheese and pasta, specifically Farfalle di Gamberi- bowtie pasta, sautéed jumbo gulf shrimp, spinach, goat cheese, roasted red pepper cream, basil oil
The shrimp were overcooked, but again the portion was small compared to our past experiences and we are not "big eaters" expecting gross servings of food.
The wine was about $56 plus tax for the bottle, and the waiter informed us we could probably buy it at Plum Market for $25.
All in all, this was a sad experience. It's too bad because this used to be one of the places we could rely on enjoying a great dinner.

We ate on the patio which had tables appropriately apart. It was a beautiful summer evening, which helps! We did not notice the traffic on Main. Our server, Candyce, was outstanding - attentive and pleasant. Gratzi accommodated my companion with her gluten issue. She had the salmon which was done perfectly. I had the veal scallopini also perfect. We split a house salad - the size was more than adequate. Had tiramisu for dessert which was OK - it lacked some oomph. All of this was on the best birthday deal in the area: Gratzi knocks off 1/2 of ALL food costs (party of three it's 1/3 etc.). Aside from being one year older, I'm ready to go back.

We have dined at Gratzi several times in the past, so we knew what to expect with the atmosphere, pricing and service. Now that restaurants are open, we were looking forward for a nice dinner. Gratzi did not disappoint - every server and hostess was wearing a mask, tables were spaced out so that social distancing could take place, and the service was great. We would definitely return for dinner there - we enjoyed it a lot.

We were a party of 4 for a birthday. 3 of us basically ordered the same meal. The 4th a different but when served the 4th meal was wrong. They took back n rushed it but we all were almost done and the rushed meal tasted like it was rushed. They apologized but still should have taken of bill or at least discounted. Also they let a huge party sit right next to us. We were outside but must of been at least 10 people who were very loud n obnoxious.

Great place! Love coming! However, the food was not flavorful and quite bland. For the price paid here, I keep expecting something more. Like the next time I come, they actually season their food. But the service and ambiance was awesome!

We were able to eat outside, but the inside did not have many customers and there was good spacing for a safer feeling. Everyone was very welcoming, service was excellent, the food was great. The special scallop appetizer was incredible and so was the calamari. It was a very enjoyable dining experience.
