Always enjoy dining at Grazie. I try to make it a point to visit the establishment 1-2 times monthly. Service is great, staff is pleasing, and they always keep the bread coming and the glasses full of water. The wine selection is good. Spinach salad is one of the best I have come across and the filleto gorgonzola is consistently delicious every time. I was surprised at the size of the Lasagna, as most places server a small portion, but here at Grazie, the portion is the best bang for buck!

Love Grazie! The food is consistently good here. The service can be hit or miss. Tonight, our server was fantastic - prompt, friendly, and professional. The place was packed and therefore a bit noisy. I wouldn't recommend it for a first date, but for any other occasion, it can't be beat! Grazie, Grazie!

This was a great find. They were able to accommodate our large group of 11 easily. Some in our group got caught in traffic and were quite late but the staff was patient. Great suggestion for a huge antipasto platter for the whole group. Great variety and plenty for everyone.Very good. Everyone liked their meals very much. Seemed like good, fresh ingredients. Wish I lived closer, I'd eat here more often. Doesn't look like much from the outside tucked into the corner of a strip mall, but it's a great little place!!

Grazie's never let's us down! The employees are professional yet so darn friendly and really work hard to make your dining experience top notch. The food is exceptional, my favorite is the steak with Gorgonzola covered in a balsamic reduction. The steak was cooked perfectly, it was so tender. I brought my two teenage daughters, all three meals were perfect. Thank you!

My wife and I had the same entree - spagettini and meatballs, salads (caesar) and appetizer (toscano garlic bread). Pretty basic stuff for an Italian restaurant. Taste was ok, but we both had stomach issues later. Server was good, though. I would probably chose a different restaurant next time.

First review for Open Table. Don't usually add anything, but Grazie was wonderful. Love the effort they put into getting the food just right. Solid Italian menu, everything we ordered was authentic and service, even on a very busy Saturday night was strong. Love that they invest in their staff by covering expenses in Italy on culinary training. It shows, staff is clearly engaged, attentive and knowledgeable. Next time I need to stay close to Sea-Tac coming or going, Grazie will be on my list.

We had reservations for 5:30 and were seated rapidly. Not too many diners yet so not very noisy. The service was impeccable! The best dish at the table was veal marsala. My husband marveled at the minestrone soup. The place filled up over the next hour and was quite noisy. Our waitress met our every need in a timely manner. We will definitely return.

 (Portland)·Dined on June 17, 2017

We were sold by the prior reviews that talked glowingly about Grazie being a hidden gem which rose far above its humble strip mall setting. We enthusiastically made a reservation because many of our favorite restaurants over the years have been undervalued treasures like that. Unfortunately, that was not the case with Grazie. We really wanted to like it and gave it every benefit of the doubt, but it was just disappointing in the end.

The modest interior is serviceable but confuses dark with cozy. The server was a bright spot and was a true delight from beginning to end. We enjoyed hearing about the restaurant's history and family origins. We ordered the Formaggio Arrabbiata as an appetizer, and it was pretty good. For the entrees, we both ordered the Filetto Gorgonzola (their most popular dish) and fettuccine alfredo for our teenager. We love both balsamic vinegar and gorgonzola and the combination with the filet sounded like a home run. However, the steaks were not tender and they were somehow bland even with the sauce. The frizzled onions were soggy and greasy and detracted from the dish. The side vegetables of carrots and beans were substantially overcooked and under seasoned.

We've eaten many filets over the years, and this was not even close to what we expect at a $30 price point. The fettuccine alfredo was pretty bland even by the mild standards for that dish. Overall, we left perplexed as to what they other reviewers were raving about. We really didn't see anything that would suggest a second visit would be any better.

The service and the food were fantastic. The soup was delicious and a large bowl would make a excellent lunch with some of their bread. Pasta dishes were good. Though the ravioli dough could have been thinner and the sausage need more flavor. Overall, I would go back. Hands down.

I've always wanted to try Grazie Ristorante and was delighted at the opportunity to go with five other friends to have a meeting that was half business, half pleasure. We got seated in a great place that was a bit tucked away so we could have a quieter spot to do business, but we still got fantastic service. From the wine to the bread to the salad to the cannelloni, everything was delicious. Can't wait to go back again with my husband for date night!

The food was absolutley fabulous.My only criticism was the noise level. It was very busy at lunchtime and it was difficult to hear my friend sitting opposite me. Once the crowd died down after 12:45 or so it was nice and quiet. I would come a bit later for luch in the future to avoid the high noise level. Everything else was perfect.

This is our favorite Italian Restaurant. The special sheet always has wonderful choices. I've never been disappointed. My husband says it's the best lasagna he's ever had. I've only ordered salads off their regular menu. I have always found the ingredients fresh and the meal very flavorful. Wonderful sauces.

Loved that we found this gem. Server was very personable and explained menu and restaurant history that added to the ambiance. This was our last night of vacation, we had a great meal. Everything was delicious and the wine pairing was nice. I wish they would open a restaurant in Boca Raton. This would be a weekend date night restaurant to frequent.
