Haven't been there in a while but just as good as I remembered it. Love going there before a show at the Mahaffey
Service is always good, even when restaurant is crowded, as it as tonight.
Excellent Meals! Your selection is beyond good regardless of what you select.
Open table reservation was spot one for this location
Friendly guest receptionist -
Very nice nieghborhood Italian atmosphere inside and at bar. /// dont let modern store front discourage you from choosing this spot.
Noise was the nice buzz that a nieghborhood resturant should have.
Our Waiter gave excellent attention to our meal / drink need ... but was not intrusive to our experience.
The meal was very good - quality and quantity of items excellent. Nice presentation of each course but not overdone ...
Tomatoes / and Sauces very authentic .
I “Recommend “ I will return whenni vist this area again.
Wonderful food! Had the escargot and tuna appetizer. Perfect! Then carbonara. Wonderful!! Highly recommend this place!!
Great meal before theater. The early bird timing worked for us...nice menu.
Good menu and delicious food. Gluten free options available
indifferent service, food very average
My husband and I go to St Petersburg every year for the Grand Prix. We make our dinner reservation at Grazzi as far in advance as we can. We love Grazzi!!! The food is out of this world. If you are ever in St Petersburg try it - you will love it!
We were seated promptly
Food and service were excellent, as it is always
Excellent food. Superb service. Lovely ambiance. We will definitely be back.
Like Italian food? This place is one of the best if not the best restaurant for Italian food in St Pete. Their early bird is great. $15. 8-10 choices plus salad or soup and dessert. Wine or beer 50% off.
Inside the noise level is excessive. We are outside, as we did for the last three yearly St Pete visits. Unfortunately this was a very mediocre visit. Wife had eggplant parm that was mushy, more like lasagne than eggplant. I had veal saltambocca, but veal was not pounded enough and was not very flavorful. A disappointing visit to what was one of our favorites
Underwhelmed. Not a place to eat if looking for healthy food. Friend zucchini flowers so heavily breaded and drowned in oil from the fryer. Frying oil not changed enough to keep fried food lighter. Forget bada bing. Not enough tomatoes or basil to keep fresh and light. No bread served. Will not revisit.
excellent food at this busy Italian restaurant, however with a 7:30 Open Table Reservation we were seated by our time.
Gnocchi dish, Chicken Parm and Salmon Carpaccio were all excellent!
The early dinner was great food and even better value. Love the environment seems like lots of locals dine there.
We are only in St Pete for 3 months. Gratzzis is one of our favorites. We really enjoy it
After my wonderful dinner I wish that I lived closer to Gratzzi Grille so I could indulge more often. My Chef's selection Scallops were superb- not overcooked - just perfect. They don't skimp on quality here- from the perfectly crafted martini, to the crusty bread and the very fresh scallops. I finished with a cannoli and espresso- it hit the spot. The service was also excellent.
The food was good, but I fear we made a mistake. That bada bing pasta cooked at the table is delicious but INCREDIBLY rich. I can't imagine anyone eating a full serving of it, so the two of us picked at it and also shared our other entree of a linguini with seafood. We saw a group of four order the bada bing and divide it by four as appetizers. Now that's a good idea. Something happened with service. Greeted nicely, got our drinks, had our soup and salad and then sat for over 45 minutes never even seeing our waiter. We appeared to be his only table in our dining room. Finally we called over the host and asked what was going on -- apparently they had totally forgotten about our entree and then within minutes they wheeled over the cart to do the pasta at the table and the seafood pasta arrived magically out of nowhere shortly after.
One of our favorite restaurants in St Pete's. Excellent food and service always!
We loved our experience there and look forward to coming back again soon.
When I got to Gratzzi they did not have my Open Table reservation. I showed her my confirmation. They were able to sit our party. I don't think I got my credit for it. That has never happened before!
Had a good meal- though we were seated in the back corner near the restrooms. Booked about a month in advance because I had a great meal here on conference about 5 years ago, and was excited to bring my husband this time while in the area. Sort of thought they figured they’d put us in the corner because we were younger patrons and less likely to complain. We drove 45 minutes from our place in Clearwater just to enjoy a meal and would have appreciated a better table. There were other couples seated in the booths that were empty when we arrived (and these couples entered after us). I don’t know if Opentable allows for restaurants to see when a reservation is booked, but if it is booked far enough in advance, it would be safe to assume the diners are on a special occasion. Oh well...
The waiter warmed up after our first encounter when he didn’t hear me say “hello” and repeated himself because he didn’t hear me. Fair enough- but I didn’t care for his tone on the second greeting. Left me with a little bit of a sour feeling. In perspective, we spent less than $70.00 on the evening an likely would have spent quite a bit more if I felt like we were getting top-notch service. It’s not uncommon for us to visit restaurants such as Norman’s in Orlando and drop $200+ between the two of us, and tip graciously. Perhaps young age doesn’t necessarily embody the customer they believe will bring the most dollar value to their establishment. Again, oh well. This restaurant books solid often and they probably don’t care.
Overall- probably won’t return because it’s out of the way for me and it wasn’t as memorable this time due to the aforementioned comments.
Excellent excellent food. Service was very good considering it was Super Bowl Sunday. Thank you.
Wanted to treat my grandson to a nice dinner. He dressed up and was so excited and hungry. Food did not arrive for an hour and a half he ate bread and fell asleep. We asked our server to bring his food as quickly as possible and it still did not arrive until all meals came. It was sad for him.
I have been here several times. The food is always good. I have tried multiple different entrees and I have never been disappointed. This time I had the pork osso bucco with portobello risotta. It was fantastic but the serving was large. I took it home and it made a great lunch the next day. The cocktails are good. The staff is friendly and prompt. Make sure you reserve a table because they are usually booked a day in advance.
It's been a while since I've eaten at Grazzi and was pleasantly surprised. Reservations are a must, especially on Mondays when the wine by the bottle list is half off. The bar had only one tender and she was scrambling to serve the packed bar area dinner and make all of the drinks for the house - an extra helper would have eliminated the 15 minute wait for a glass of wine while waiting for our table to open up. The escargot appetizer was amazing in a velvety tomato cream sauce with mushrooms, leaving not much room left for dinner but a salad, and a good one at that. Good experience and will definitely be back!
Great evening - as always food was perfect and the atmosphere the best. Dominick makes everyone feel special...as if he is welcoming you into his home.
Gratzzi Grill is the best place for Italian in St Pete. WE LOVE IT. We are going back for my husband's birthday on Feb 24.
IT IS IMPECCABLE
Wonderful food - great ambiance and makes for a wonderful evening. All of our meals were wonderful - and large.
Some interesting combinations of fresh pasta. Most items were quite heavy and filling--not for strict calorie watchers!
Amazing as always!
I found this restaurant to be schizophrenic in that there are tablecloths and table side service but the bar area is in the center of the restaurant and can get very loud. We were there for a date night and loved the food and service but were disappointed to have to see and listen to the bar crowd yelling at one another doing shots and taking selfies. We also found it distracting to have people waiting for tables standing directly in front of our table with their backs to us. We did enjoy the staff singing happy birthday to my wife and bringing a tiramisu and limoncello shots to celebrate.
Grattzi’s is a keeper. Great ambiance, very diverse menu selections, and well managed!
A couple friends treated me for my birthday. The early bird $15 menu had at least a dozen different choices. House wine was $3.50, I ordered the steak, w/ mashed potatoes, salad, bread, and cream brule'. I can't wait to return, but I live 20 miles away--wish the restaurant would open one closer to my home.
We went here because we had heard good things about the place. I had Pasta E Fagioli soup, it was tasty but didn't really taste as it should, didn't detect any sausage. The salad had a peculiar taste in it that we were unable to determine what it was, again, not horrible but not what we were expecting. Ordered Chicken Marsala, it was very tasty, but the chicken was kind of tough, didn't eat the last piece because I was unable to cut it with the butter knife. Not sure why, but everytime we go to an Italian restaurant, there is always a woman that feels the need to laugh as loud as she can, this occasion was no different. Not the restaurant's fault of course. None of us were drinking, so we didn't try any of the wine, so we can't comment on that. Overall it was a pleasant visit with some small annoyances, but the service was excellent, Cloie was an attentive and efficient server.
Great food and great service. Will definitely return.
I had the Bada Bing dish, it was great. The early bird specials are a great value also, and very tasty.
Excellent value when ordering from their early bird menu (before 5:30).
Went for a birthday party. Made a reservation on open table but the restaurant claimed to have no reservation. Luckily it was a slow night so we were still able to get a table. The table service was great with fergie and food was amazing as usual. The steak tartare is my favorite in the world. Gave a 4 star rating because i jad the reservation in my phone and even received a confirmation. Had this been a saturday and we couldnt get a table after all I would have been very upset. Birthday girl got the special which was lobster ravioli with scallops and shrimp. Dish was very good except that the shrimp were in a cream sauce and birthday girl had to take the tails off her shrimp. We all found this strange considering it was in a sauce but then she had to use her hands to remove the shell? We got lucky though with being able to get a table for 6 still and the rest of the night was perfect.
