Food excellent, veal chop cooked perfectly, husband had the Zuppa di pesca dish. Friends had lasagna and another pasta dish I can’t remember. We also ordered a pizza to go for the weekend. And I loved my Caesar salad. Service was a bit slow but we loved our visit to Gratzzi.

Though I am a regular at Grattzi's, they never disappoint me on the food and the personal service. You can be as casual or formal as you like and always fit in.

It’s always a treat to eat at Gratzzi’s. As a vegetarian, I always order the delicious whole wheat penne pasta Mediterranean, which I wish was included as one of your early bird specials. The rest of my group were all well-satisfied carnivores. Birthday dessert with the singing staff was terrific. Thank you!

The bada-bing table side pasta is a must! Make sure to let them know ahead of time so they can seat you at a proper table!

I live in the general neighborhood and love the place. Never a disappointment, but be sure to make reservations. It's a popular place. Bada Bing is a favorite, but share it bc it's very rich.

Disappointing. Used to be a GREAT place. Now it’s an OK place depending on what you order. The eggplant rollatini was tasty but the eggplant itself was very tough. The cavatelli pesto was really good. The carbonara was a disaster! Cold and clumped together, extremely dry. When mentioned to server, his answer was “that’s how carbonara is”. Really?? Not anyplace that knows how to cook it! Manager took it off the check but that’s not the point. Server never bothered to explain the house specialty made in cheese bowl table side which is a shame because it looked really good, once we asked about what it was we were seeing at other tables. Not sure there will be a next time to try it.

Great food, nice atmosphere. We had 4:30 reservations so asked for the early dinner menu. The waitress looked less than pleased. We were a group of four and had a wonderful time. Gratzzi was packed by the time we left. My only complaint was the waitress: lose the attitude!
Food was excellent. The stuffed shrimp, house salad and German chocolate cake were great. As was the price. A real gem.

Haven't been there in a while but just as good as I remembered it. Love going there before a show at the Mahaffey

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.

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.

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.
