As usual the food was excellent. My wife had penne with chicken and I had chicken Marsala. We had a shared glass of Montepulciano. The server was attentive but not intrusive.
There was only one wine shown on the menu, so we asked for a wine we had enjoyed before. I think a sheet with wine choices, especially by the glass, should be offered.
We had cheesecake for dessert. It was okay, but overwhelmed by the chocolate drizzle and nutss. New York cheesecake should I think be plain cheesecake.

Great service, good food (especially liked the Caprese salad). I had the rack of lamb. Next time will ask if the glaze could be on the side because the overly sweet sauce masked the flavor of the lamb. My family enjoyed their choices...fettuccine alfredo, seafood pasta. & steak medallions. Been here several times...only other suggestions is the interior is so dark, I had to use my phone flashlight to read the menu & the noise level is very high.

We have been here twice within 2 months, great both times. Meals are made from scratch not prepared ahead of time, but always top notch.

Grazie is amazing! The polo parmigiana was wonderful and my wife’s polo lemonei (sp) was perfect! Of course the suggested wine pairing was outstanding.

I remember when this place opened decades ago and I kept thinking “seems odd to have an Italian place in that location”. We moved away and came back and I was like “That place is still there!” And yet it still has taken us a few years to get in and try it. Sorry for us! We were so pleasantly surprised. The food was better than we expected and the staff were wonderful. I almost gave a lower rating for atmosphere and then I gave it a second though because actually to take a strip mall space and give it a warmer feel and break up the seating space as they have done is pretty impressive. If you have been hesitating possibly thinking as we had been...get in here, just don’t take our table ;)

The food is not what is used to be. Ordered the Capellini Gamberetti, and could barely find any shrimp. Pasta was overcooked. In the old days, this dish had lovely large prawns. Service was still wonderful, but sad that the food has taken a downturn

Great pastas and desserts, great ambience, not so dark like a lot of restaurant where you need to use your phone lights to see the menu.

A little pricing for the food, however, it's good and the service is always great.

Whenever we're in the area, we try to get to Grazie at Southcenter for dinner. We're obviously not the only ones who like this place -- it was already pretty busy when we arrived at 5:45p.m.; strongly recommend making a reservation to ensure you'll have a seat! We did have a reservation. Service was okay but we felt somewhat rushed; probably a desire to get people in SUPERB! My wife had the Pasta Special of the night it was pretty good but would have been outstanding had it been brought up to room temp. All in all, a nice dinner & we will return on our next visit.

I love this place. Located in the corner of a strip mall, the quality and ambiance sneaks up on you a little. On the other hand, I have dined at Ruth's Chris in some unusual settings - I note it, but it has no bearing on my scoring (usually).
The service was good, not great - I'm ok with that on balance with really good food. This brings my only minor gripe - $15 for a kind of small plate (dinner size) of Aglio Olio - just a few bites more would make me happy. But I'm going back when I can - no question!
I hope this seems like a helpful suggestion and not a major complaint, because I really enjoy frequenting this place when I am in the area.

Wife loved her seafood pasta dish. My chicken Parma was ok. Could have been much better. They make a big deal over their sauce, but it is average at best. Needs to be thicker. Deserts looked great.
