Graziella's Brooklyn Ratings and Reviews
WOW! Love the pizza at Graziella's! I tried the clam pie and it was everything I hoped for... a wonderful taste of salty, briny clams with hints of fresh herbs on a deliciously crisp and thin wood oven crust. My husband had the meat lovers and was also very pleased. The house wines were perfect companions. The chef gave us samples of the homemade focaccia bread ... warm from the oven. The NY cheesecake for dessert was excellent. We needed more room in our bellies! We hope to return the next time we visit NYC.
Graziella's was a disappointment. We were there for a business dinner and spent over
$100. The waitress was inexperienced and the entire staff was also inexperienced.
We dined on a Friday night and the restaurant was crowded. We were left sitting without
any acknowledgment or greeting for a significant amount of time. Other customers
who came in after us were seated before us.
What really upset us was when I took a video of the bug swimming in my cappuccino and
showed the waitress, her response was "Its a bug", and she did not offer me another
cappuccino or she did not apologize. I was also charged for the $6 cappuccino.
We were gracious enough to even leave a very generous tip. We will never frequent this
I have been here many, many times. It is a family favorite. My husband and I are vegetarians and we love their eggplant parmigiana--thinly sliced, slightly crispy, really delicious. They also offer several fresh salads. They have rooftop outdoor dining, which is always enjoyable in the warm weather. This is our "go to" restaurant in the neighborhood for a casual meal.
Despite having a reservation, we were seated 20+ min late. It was a Friday so they were understandably busy, so we got a glass of wine to pass the time but that even took longer than it should have and had to ask several times to order a glass. The pizza came out late, and compared to the pizzas around us, appeared to be over cooked. The wait staff were kind and attentive though.
A neighborhood gem we have been going back to for years. Great for families with small children and big group parties but the outdoor patio area upstairs is also great for dates / a more intimate spot. All of the food is excellent and the service, even when busy, tends to be terrific. Perhaps slightly expensive in general, but in Fort Greene, actually more on the affordable side. I highly recommend the eggplant parmesan.
I'm a fan. Ive been there twice. The service is better than the food and their food is great! The pizza was great for my daughter, she was nothing but smiles with her apple juice. It may not be listed but they do have juice. There was no rush on service, everything was comfortable. I'll be coming back soon to see what the outside is all about when it doesn't rain.
We ate at several restaurants in NYC over our three days there. This was our favorite! I don't eat gluten, so searched out a place to order gluten free pizza. This was the most delicious gluten free pizza I've ever had. I also ordered a salad which was fresh (not iceberg or romaine but arugula) tasty and big enough to share. The wine and dessert also did not dissappoint. We will remember Graziella's and return next time we visit.
Slow service, there was one other table when we arrived and we had to remind them to seat is us and ask to have drink order taken. Food slow to arrive and one guest received meal as others were finishing. Appetizer plates weren't removed until dinner was over. Extremely loud. Food ok but not worth the trouble of dining in. Good for delivery only.
We had a wonderful time celebrating graduation with a big group. Our waitress was fantastic, she made sure she had all the orders correct, and constantly checked in on us without being intrusive. It was too cold to sit outside, but the upstairs balcony looked nice. The restaurant is tucked away on a quite block, so there is not too much traffic, either cars or humans, to be distracting. The food was delicious and portions were generous. I would definitely go back.
We've brought our kids to Graziella's multiple times and have never had a bad experience. The food is excellent and the service is always good. We've sampled everything from the various pizzas to the tasty pasta dishes. Recommended appetizer would be the Sicilian Rice Balls made with shredded meat and fresh mozzarella - the best I've ever tried.
We were staying in Brooklyn for Mother's Day weekend. Graziella's had a nice menu and an easy walk from our hotel. The waiter warned us that it could be slow due to some large tables, to be expected maybe on Mother's Day weekend. We said no worries that we were not in a hurry, that may have been a mistake... That said food was great, staff were friendly and cheerful. Owner should have added staff for a busy weekend.
We love Graziella's so much (food is outstanding) we decided to dine yet again at Graziella's. We made reservations using Open Table with no issues. When we arrived at Graziella's the restaurant was packed, as a private party was going on. I mentioned we had reservations and the manager apologized stating they tried to call all reservations made on open table. I did not receive a call, but without hestition, the manager asked is we would stay, have a bottle of wine on him while waiting about a half hour for a table. We decided to stay and actually dined at the bar - wine, service and food was outstanding. What a great manager - diffused a potential issue and we were all winners. BTW - did I say the food was excellent.
