I love coming to Grazie's the food is very good. It does get very crowded in there and very loud. I wanted more of a quite atmosphere since it was our anniversary. We had to wait a bit for a nice table, but they sure do squeeze you in there. I called ahead of time to request this and told them it was our anniversary they did not acknowledge it. I will go back but it won't be for a long time.

I appreciated that we had the opportunity to say what type of seating we wanted when making our reservation. The choices are counter, high tables or conventional seating. We both had the house salad which is a generous size and very tasty. I enjoyed the calamari piccata which was also good sized. It tasted great too. Service was attentive.

We had nine people in our party and everybody had a perfect meal. They treated us like we were family even though this was our very first visit. Everything was fresh and authentic. The lasagna was probably the biggest hit of all the dishes. They have a great wine list with a variety of different wines and everything is reasonably priced. We would definitely try to eat there again when in Seattle.

Overpriced food, poor customer service practices for a mediocre experience.
We used to love this place, but we will stay away from it.

We wanted to have dinner and wait out the traffic before heading back to Bellingham from Seatac. This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was wonderful. The Atlanta flight was an hour delayed and the restaurant was very nice and moved our reservation an hour later. It was easy to get there from the airport and easy to get back onto I-5. The food was excellent Italian food, we will definitely do this again.

Food and service was excellent worth the price for sure. It is a little on the noisy side as its small and pretty open and that was at lunch time. We were there to celebrate a birthday and was a little surprised that they didn't offer a free dessert for the birthday person said offered only a candle if there was a dessert ordered. However Food just can't be beat and they are very generous servings. Will most definitely be back probaby many times.

This is my wife and I's favorite place to eat in Washington. They are not a chain and make almost everything in house from scratch which is awesome for two reasons. One, its delicious. Two, my wife has lots of food allergies and the chefs easily make delicious changes tailored to her allergies. The food is simply BOMB.
They also have a set up to make their pasta dishes gluten free if you have gluten allergies.
The food is amazing, the dessert is indescribable (so far the chocolate mousse with raspberry reduction and key lime pie are our favorites) and the prices are very reasonable. I realize price is subjective so for an example; we recently took my mom and dad out for dinner, we got two appetizers, two salads, four entrees, two desserts, and two bottles of wine for $200.
The place is tiny though, gets packed fast, and can get pretty loud. As long as you can deal with that during peak hours this place is a must visit in my humble opinion. They also send all their staff to Italy to learn about food and wine! Seriously such a great Ristorante with that good ole' community, mom's home cooking, small town feeling.
Service has also been mosyly great. I used to work at the Claim Jumpers close by (back when it was still owned by the founder) and thus have a high standard of what service should be.
Jorge has been by far the coolest person there I've been a guest of to date. The only person I was a guest of that I wasn't ecstatic about was caused more by what seemed like a conceded attitude and ridiculous shiny belt buckle (could have been a cool if he didnt come across as such a prude) more than his service.

Grazie Ristorante near Southcenter was a last minute decision to try something new in the area -- it did not disappoint! Food was excellent and service was quick. We tried the spaghetti w/meatballs, steak and ravioli....everything had excellent flavor. Also had the shrimp appetizer and all I can say is yum! Seating is cozy--small space so not a quiet place but loved the energy and everyone seemed to be having a great time. This is our new go-to dinner place in the area and their desserts are excellent as well -- highly recommend.

So disappointed. Wanted to try a new place with a friend. Made a reservation and we were seated at a quickly set up card table with folding chair in the passage way between other tables. As the table slid across the floor and I was bumped into by every passerby, we decided to leave. I think the food is probably good, it smelled wonderful in there! However, people were seated who had no reservations prior to those of us who did. The hostess would not seat us at a regular table because is was for four people and not just two. Really?? Instead lets put you at a plastic card table on folding chairs in the walkway. You will love it!!! Well, we didn't and left.

The restaurant was kind enough to hold our reservation even with our flight delay. The entrees were great for a pre-half marathon meal and the chocolate cannolis were worth the extra carbs. I'd definitely recommend this place for a date or getting together with friends!

We had heard so many good things about the Caynon Park location and were excited try it out ourselves in the Southcenter store. The food was a bit bland to be honest. I had the veal picatta and it really needed something more. I didn't notice any capers, maybe that was it. My wife was equally underwhelmed with her dish. The house salads were extremely dry and our server didn't check back so we just ate them anyway (what little dressing that there was was FANTASTIC, we just needed more). Bummed out, probably just an off night. The special wine was REALLY good, and an excellent value at $35.

Just a great surprise. Very solid food. Italian with some Spanish influence. Attentive and generous service. And a wine list that had some thought and creativity. Will not be a foodie place, but for very good, fresh and well cooked Italian comfort food, a place not to miss.
