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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
