Grattzi’s Management was so nice. We arrived on time and it was such a beautiful night in St Pete we asked to be seated outside. They were so accommodating and advised us we may have a wait but they did have one table that had paid their check and if we were patient, we would have that table. The paid diners took forever to leave their table but once they did leave, four other tables opened up at one time. Casey our server was very good. Seems he has the knack of short pours and he kept out white Wine chilled and cold. Our meal? Just as we expected: excellent. My husband loved his spaghettini and meatballs and Grattzi accommodated his request for meat sauce. We thought the tab for this was inexpensive. Two, new to Grattzi’s , diners loved the lasagne and the eggplant parm and as always my eggplant rollatini was delicious. We did not finish our bottle of wine and Casey made no bones about following the Merlot to Go Law. He put the cork back in the Wine, put the bottle in a sealed bag with a receipt and sent us on our way. We love Grattzi Grille and always have a delicious meal here. We are not hesitant about ordering anything on the menu.

We have always greatly enjoyed Gratzzi. Good food and great service. The one thing we don't enjoy is their lack of wine lists. They never ever leave one when we're seated. We always have to flag someone down to bring one and then god forbid we keep very long! They need to let loose of some $$$ and purchase a few more.

Grattzi’s a long time favorite for us and in all our years of coming here we never tire of their well prepared Italian food. We admit we order Cavatelli Bada Bing too much but it is a signature dish here and we love it. This is truly a restaurant where you need not be afraid of trying different foods.

We have been dining with Gratzzi for 15 years now and it still remains in the ranks for good, solid nothing too exotic Italian food. Tonight, Gratzzi was spot on. It is a friendly , happy restaurant filled with groups of people out to eat well, drink heartily and have a good time. Our server was excellent, not rushed, accommodating and was genuinely concerned that we were happy with our meal. We had a shared meal: crabmeat stuffed mushrooms with far more bread filling than expected but we loved them; our salad was a shared house salad that we always enjoy and Cavatelli Bada Bing. Yum! The Cavatelli is always so filling we bring home leftovers and enjoy them even more the next day. Tonight was everything we expect from Gratzzi at it’s best and we left happy campers waiting to come back for more

The cavatelli bada bing prepared at the table was delicious. We had it as an appetizer for four people, and it was very satisfying. Both couples shared the osso buco, which was outstanding. The salad that came with the meal was large enough to share and very satisfying. The desserts were also delicious. We certainly will return to this restaurant when we are in the area.

Gratzzi is a favorite of mine. With so many restaurants in St. Pete, I try to go to Gratzzi at least once a month. It has a great happy hour crowd and is a lively, friendly place. The food is delicious, the service is excellent and the staff is very accommodating.

Gratzzi Grille’s “Cavatelli Badabing” is the star of the show! Your pasta flambéed table-side in a 9 year aged hundred pound wheel of Parmesan cheese from a 400+ year old maker in Parma Italy is more than just a meal. This is a fun culinary experience!

Very convenient location for me so I wish that I could count on this restaurant for consistency. But that is not the case and my most recent trip to Gratzzi was not the best. The food was heavy and over sauced. Not going back for a while. Maybe it will get better.

The veal was a bit chewy both mine and my husbands. The white wine by the glass needs to improve! A better Italian like Gavi would be recommended.

Our experience was definitely less than expected and disappointing. The server was not friendly - he was very disengaged and didn't smile the entire time. I felt like he hated being there. The food was extremely slow to be served. We waited 15 minutes for our drink order, 20 minutes later he took our order, another 20 minutes before the salad/soups, and 30 minutes later our entree was served. In our reservation, I made a note of this occasion being a birthday celebration for two of us and there was no mention of it during the evening - yet we saw three other tables with birthdays where the staff brought out a dessert with a candle and the staff sang Happy Birthday. On top of that the dining room was so hot that we couldn't enjoy our meal. I left with a splitting headache from the heat and the noise. Even though the food was good, overall we did not enjoy the evening due to the service and the temperature in the dining room. We will try again and hope that our experience is much improved.

Celebrated my husband's birthday and could not have been happier with the food, service, and ambiance. The food recommendations from the server were superb and ended evening with the best tiramisu and cannoli we have ever had before. They also brought a round of limoncello. Will be back again soon and would recommend to everyone.

Downtown St Pete has several exceptional restaurants, but Gratzzi's stands out, even among these stars. There is a flaming appetizer called Bada Bing which quite possibly is the best dish I have ever tasted. Service is elegant with attention to detail. Even the simple things are special: the bread, the house salad, the house reds by the glass. Equal mix of locals and visitors, because it is just that good.

Dear, dear Gratzzi: what the hell happened tonight??? Were you understaffed or overcrowded? We have been dining with you for years and tonight service was way, way off. We waited 30 minutes to place a wine order and then another 20 minutes for a glass of wine. Andrew was attentive of our water glasses, but totally out of touch with our meal and our wine service and service in general. Maybe it was a kitchen problem because we watched in the mirror and every time Andrew went into the kitchen he was in there way too long. Did Andrew bear the brunt of an understaffed kitchen? Might we suggest that wait staff pitch in to get out a meal. It seemed everything was on Andrew's shoulders and he had no back up. In addition, was there an air conditioner problem? The three of us came out of your restaurant dripping wet from the heat. It pains me to give low stars to you, but tonight deserves it. On the positive side, our food was , as we expected, excellent, flavorful, hot, beautiful in presentation and delicious. So look at the stars in this review. Low ratings for service, good ratings for food. Talk about a high and a low! Tonight will not stop us from coming back as you do put out delicious food but assess what happened tonight and clean up your service.
