Finding the place is challenging, it's in a strip mall, next to a Men's wearhouse, and a Car-Toys. then the sign is partly burned out.
this might discourage you from going, don't let it. The food was great, the wine selection is good, the service was above average.

This was my second visit with my wife. This time we brought along friends to enjoy the food and atmosphere. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food arrived timely and was delicious. My friends and I enjoyed the evening. Anyone looking for great Italian food need look no further.

The food, as always, was excellent. But, our appetizer showed up with our dinner, and the waitress forgot my second glass of wine. It was very busy and I was pleasantly surprised how fast our food arrived.

We had a table of 6 and were seated promptly. The place is a bit noisy and cramped. Service was very good. We were well attended and our antipasti and drinks came fairly quickly. The antipasti were for 2-4 people so we got two, which turned out to be too much (we took some home). Nice variety and good quality! The entree's were very good as were the desserts. All in all, a quite enjoyable evening.

This place is great for small groups and romantic meals. From the outside near shopping it does not look like a high quality restaurant but inside you will be surprised. The food was top quality with enough variety for people with different diets. We truly enjoyed our visit. Make a reservation.

Once again, a stellar experience at this fine restaurant. I took a client from Seattle here for lunch recently, and a month or so later we returned, as it's now one of his favorite places. My husband and I went on New Year's Eve, and despite the very busy night, service was excellent, and the food was delicious, as always. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant we have, on the south end.

Gracie’s is always excellent. We have been going there for more than 5 years. We have never been disappointed in the food or service. The food is always fresh and prepared authentic and delicious. The staff are very knowledgeable on the food and wine. They may not know your name but they treat you like family every time.

This Italian restaurant has the best Italian food that I have found in the United States. And I came to find out why this company sends their staff to Italy twice a year to train, the Ambiance is fantastic the food is authentic and delicious I've tried multiple things and have never been disappointed! It's a perfect place for a business meeting or a date or just a get-together With Friends impressive wines and delicious food! I recommend making a reservation as they are very popular!

Great food. But I reserved a table and when I got there they didn’t have any. Had to wait 25 minutes even though I had a reservation. Greeter was very rude/not accommodating. Waiters were great as was the service once we were seated.

Excellent food, full of flavor, lovely wine list - all from Italy so more expensive but adds to the experience. Friendly service, a romantic and cozy restaurant great for dates, family meals for a special occasion and for groups. Vibrant atmosphere as the restaurant gets busy. Excellent, authentic Italian Cuisine!

All in all our experience this time was good. The place was packed, I assume due to the holidays, even for a Thursday evening. We had to wait 45 minutes even with having made a reservation! There is no place to wait in the restaurant leaving my elderly father leaning against a door jam. I would like to suggest that the restaurant take a tip from other restaurants in the area. When you (Grazie) find yourself fully booked and with a tight table turn, especially with large groups (we had a group of 6), please let the first seating group know that their table is booked for a specific time with another booking at a specific time and that they have the table up to that time. You appreciate their understanding and if necessary throw in a complimentary order of garlic bread. If that doesn't sit quite right with you then do not schedule the next reservation so tightly or at least offer the one who waited 45 minutes a complementary something. WE even had to ask the hostess to send the waiter over after having been seated for 10 minutes. We had not only a hungry 81 year old but a hungry 2 1/2 year old!! Thank goodness the meal was great and arrived promptly or there would have been some very upset folks.

Our business group was made up of 4 substantial eaters. All have extensive international travel history. All dishes were exceptional and the service and atmosphere was Perfect. We had a great time and probably our 4th or 5 visit in the past 2 years and each time we have been very pleased and anxious for the next visit.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on December 2, 2017

The food was pretty great actually, I loved the ambiance and the atmosphere. However we had a very rude and combative waiter. He first asked what kind of wine we wanted - I said I had no clue (I don't order wine normally) and whether he could educate us and make a recommendation". He said "well sir the menu is right there, didn't you have a look?". He was quite snarky the whole time and didn't have the patience or politeness to treat his guests well. It felt like we were doing him a favor and he kinda ruined the experience for us.
Food was great but we won't be back.
