We were in St Pete for 2 nights. Went to Gratzzi Grille on the 2nd night. Our waiter, Al, was excellent. Very knowledgeable and very personable. The food was delicious. We had stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, which was delicious. My husband had veal parmigiano which was excellent. Definitely recommend restaurant.
Noise level somewhat loud, but we were seated next to the bar. Would recommend asking for a table away from that area.
We have been before and enjoyed the meal, this time we had to wait 50 mins and still no good so we left Management need to be aware of poor service Only had a drink while we waited. They did not look very busy so no excuse.
great food, great waiter and we got there early enough to take advantage of the early dining menu, The whole event was superb. I know now that why it is one of St Petes best restaurants!
Waiter was top notch. Excellent service. Food was great.
Excellent tasting and well prepared meal provided with great service and strong wine selection. Definitely planning to make a return for other occasions, we really enjoyed the experience.
Food was good. Server not very attentive. I received the wrong meal. Forgot my wine a couple times. Waited awhile to have my water refilled multiple times. I will go back but hopefully have a server that likes to serve people.
Took family to Gratzzi and we were not disappointed. Service by Robert was excellent. He was attentive, informative and helpful. We had the Cavatelli Bada Bing and the fried burrata as appetizers. Both were excellent!! Robert suggested the bada bing as an app rather to share rather than an entree for just one. Very glad we took his advice. Each had a different entree and all were amazing. Fresh pasta was cooked perfectly as was the seafood. And the Pork Ossobuco was awesome (just as Robert described it...Pork Awesome-buco)!! Deserts (limoncello cake and creme brulee) were served with complimentary limoncello and both were amazing. Definitely will be back.
Excellent quality food,n service.
I had seafood sachettini OMG the best
We had bada bing Cavetlli for table appetizer .Good show
Homemade Italian the best in St. Pete. Love the classic experience and friendly staff. Every visit here is great.
Great service by Tom! Food was excellent as always! The Cavatelli Bada Bing is a must have...we get it as an appetizer for 4 and it’s perfect! Just wish this restaurant was closer to us!
we ordered clam linguini instead of the seafood linguini and it was terrible -we discussed either the waitress how the preparation might be ie.italian style is just butter white wine and garlic and parsley -this was a gray unappetizing soup
Food was wonderful. The Matre d was very helpful and seated us quickly. They were very flexible and accomodating.
Work Christmas party
As always Gratzzi hits the mark, I can't say enough about the consistency of the food, service and value. Gratzzi always delivers the goods!
Been going to Grattzi for few years now. Food is great, wine list is very good . Owner overseeing shows ......love it!
Gratzzi is one of our favorite restaurants in downtown St Petes. The food is always delicious and the service attentive and professional.
The food was fantastic. Unique menu items. Service fantastic. We will go back and recommend to others.
Fantastic! Food better than expected. Can't wait to return.
The food while a great value was room temperature.
Our server was top notch.
Went for my girlfriend’s birthday, food was great, service was great, one crying baby was annoying but can’t fault the restaurant for that, would definitely go back!
Great food, good service, good value for the money. We had Veal piccata and was very tasty and good portion size. Highly recommend for Italien food.
The restaurant was less than what I expected in appearance. The waiter wasn’t familiar with the menu, drink options, or substitutions on the menu.
We asked for gnocchi with vodka sauce and he brought the menu item with just the sauce substituted. That went back because it was wrong and had mushrooms.
The appetizers were pretty good, the cavatelli baca bing was pretty good as well as the deserts.
If I could give no stars I would. I cannot remember when I have had a worse meal. (And my husband and I eat out 85% of the time. I don’t even know where to start, but will start with sitting for at least 20 min before getting any attention. But service is the least of the problem. My linguini pescatore was described as light vodka cream sauce. This was also recommended you the waiter. (Important for ending of review) the sauce was some sort of brown red paste with a foul taste. I should have sent back but by this time we were so hungry and had no idea when something else would come out that I tried to scrape the sauce off. The shame was the shrimp and scallops were good, clams and mussels basically shriveled nothing sauce like paper machete paste. My husbands meal was cold. His mussel dish was cold and pasty as well. As the end of dinner came I couldn’t down enough water to rid myself of the bad taste that seemed to get worse. I resorted to asking for crackers to get rid of the taste and the waiter said not a cracker in the house . We just said ok we are just cutting losses and signed the check. Again why? Should have gotten chef or manager . So the waiter says I know what can get rude of that taste ! So that tells me
He knows how awful this stuff is. He runs out followings on the street with lemon cello! What?! I said no thank you, my husband took the free shot and I went back to the hotel got some pretzels then brushed my teeth! Yuk is all I can say about that this place.
Great atmosphere! Love the Ba Da Bing!
Date night before the Doobie Brothers concert. Food was outstanding!!!!!
One of my favorite restaurants in downtown St Pete’s. Always excellent food and service!
Outstanding food and service and would highly recommended this place. A big plus is the availability of free parking in the garage directly across the street.
Grattzi is our favourite italian restaurant in St Petersburg. The atmosphere, service and food are always excellent.
Delicious salad and entree. I had the manicotti. My husband had the Italian meatloaf.
The food was outstanding. Linda, our server, was knowledgeable & pleasant. The manager came by to check on us. Everything was wonderful especially the bacon wrapped shrimp and the sea bass dinner.
Excellent service and food!
We went to Gratzzi for lunch after the Florida Orchestra Coffee Concert. Service was excellent and the food was extremely good and plentiful especially for lunch. The Flat Bread was particularly tasty but wouldn't be an adequate lunch by itself for most people. The other dishes were fresh and well prepared. It is very hard to go wrong with this restaurant.
It was a wonderful experience the waiter was fabulous the food was wonderful and we enjoyed everything about it.
Waiter was exceptional, attentive, polite and simply lovely!
Fantastic Italian restaurant. One of our favorites of all time. We had our rehearsal dinner here 3 years ago and will celebrate our anniversary each year here as a tradition. The staff was helpful and the Badabing is DELICIOUS!
We returned to grattzi after a year's absence. Our waiter did just an ok job, not very affable. Did not mention any of the evening specials. Rarely checked on us. Had to flag him down. Ordered the veal chop which was ok, not great. Came smothered with a wet salad sitting atop the chop, a dollop of mash potatoes needing salt, mushy overcooked green beans, and a small square of tasteless polenta served with a tablespoon of marinara sauce. My partner had pasta with scallops and mushrooms which was tasteless. Not a good meal. Likely won't return.
