It is always a pleasure dinning at Graziella's We enjoy celebrating family events at this restaurant.
My family and I love Graziella's. We eat there about 6 times a year. This time there seemed to be something missing from each dish (except for the broccoli rabe which was delicious). I am chalking it up to a one-off bad night.
I took my Sister there after visiting our Mother. The food was good and she enjoyed the drink specials . My salted caramel Gelato never lets me down.
Took my 5 year-old granddaughter and some friends. We all enjoyed it.
The food service and ambience were great if possible request rooftop seating
I’ve lived in Clinton Hill since Graziella’s came to the neighborhood. It was always my favorite “go to” restaurant for good food and reasonable prices. I recently went there to eat and I loved the food as always but was disappointed that the noise level was so high I could not enjoy my food with my guests. I don’t know how you would manage this but I think you should address it.
Aside from the stale bread, the appetizers and entrees were great as always. The seafood (clams) were fresh and the veal parm was excellent. This is a great casual neighborhood spot in BK.
We sat on the balcony upstairs. Very good service, attentive and friendly. Food was good. We had the calamari and the margarita pizza.
Food, drinks, service... impeccable! My party and I had a fantastic time! Definitely a Brooklyn gem.
This is such a great neighborhood gem that I initially heard about on Food Network. The food, and service is great. The pizzas are delicious and the pastas are too! What a great little spot.
On holiday from Australia, we were made welcome. Food was delicious, great decor, service great, price was good, staff were very helpful. Recommend highly.
Food & service were excellent. Wine was affordable. Highly recommend!
Ravioli sauce heavy. The linguini was ok.
Outdoor space nice. Bread not fresh.
As usual the food was excellent. As it was Mother's Day the space was quite full and the noise level was commensurate with the crowd size, but not loud enough to prevent conversation.
Service was really very good given the size of the crowd. The server warned us that the kitchen was very busy, so we just took our time with the appetizers (ordered early at the server's suggestion) and the first bottle of wine.
Overall a very pleasant Mother's Day dinner.
Usual last minute, random dining at Graziella’s. Today the service was less than fair. Lack of waiters it seems, outdoor seating was packed & a trainee was tailing one of the 2 waiters that were on shift. Too much of a long wait for our drinks, then the appetizer and my entree was cool and my friend’s was warm. Time before this we were stuck
with the slowest waitress ever. Encountered her on our first visit here last year. Nothing has changed in a year with her. Food is good but service is becoming subpar. Looking for another neighborhood gem.
The best pizza in Brooklyn. Good for families...
My family has loved Graziella’s for more than a decade. The staff is always warmly welcoming, the food is fresh, delicious and authentic (often locally sourced), and they serve outstanding brick oven pizza! We love that Graziella’s customers span all of Brooklyn - newcomers, old-timers, young, old, all stripes. A neighborhood gem!
I had the most DELICIOUS honey-mustard crusted salmon as my entree and tiramisu for dessert, and they were both to die for. Will definitely go back (every day if I could).
Food was great as always. Service was personable as always. However, the kitchen was badly backed-up tonight. Not sure what happened.
Fantastic food! Cute place! Nice staff!
Great for families with little ones. Yummy pizza. Good prices for bottles of wine.
Really really tasty food! In case I forgot to mention it, really tasty food.
Wonderful ambiance with the most authentic Italian dishes and the most attentive and courteous service! A neighborhood gem and highly recommended!
I loved the restaurant's quiet atmosphere despite it being a family establishment. The wait staff was extremely accommodating and respectful. The food was amazing especially the Meatball Calzone. Everything was fairly priced despite its above average quality. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
Graziella's is a cozy neighborhood spot. The positive: super friendly service, a tired but cozy atmosphere, a wide-variety of items on the menu and again, really friendly folks. The not-so-positive: They served Pinot Noir ice cold, the linguine with clams with overly buttery, lacking flavor and the clams were not fresh. The chicken marsala was a good size but I'm not sure it had any actual marsala wine (vs. brown gravy) in it.
The desserts were delicious....the pistachio chocolate cannoli and the lava cake were both super fresh and flavorful.
It's a place that has a TON of potential. It needs to be spruced up and refocused. I would definitely come back if there was more of an emphasis on quality.
Really basic and simple food.... but great! Totally not pretentious!
Best chicken parm iv had in a while besides my mothers
They listened when i said well done and the chicken was crispy and you could actually taste each ingredient. Chicken cheese sauce.
First time here and it was worth the last minute find. Our waitress was very kind. The food was finger licking good. I must return to try the other belly growling, eye popping and licking lips options on the menu!
Great local spot, pizza ovens, cute decor and excellent food. Sometimes the service is a little lacking but as a local spot you don't come for a quick turnover, you come to relax eat and enjoy.
very nice Italian restaurant.....acoustics such that you hear all conversations...otherwise all else wonderful!
Warm inviting environment; personable and helpful waitress; weren't rushed to select meal or to finish eating.
Result we all had a great time
Everything about this place is great! The food is Amazing and the staff delivers top notch service. Great for family dining.
A wonderful place with great service and amazing food. Took my wife for her birthday and we had a wonderful time. The device was excellent.
The food was phenomenal the service was great, but it was a little too loud for my liking. I could have a conversation with my 81 year old grandmother on her birthday. Obviously it wasn’t the fault of the restaurant, the patrons were just on the louder side.
This is my go to restaurant for me and my girlfriend. I’ve actually been coming since 2006. We came for New Year’s Eve and I don’t know if it was because of the holiday that the service and food was poor, but after all these years this experience was the worst I’ve ever had, and to be honest the only bad service I’ve gotten. Once we were seated it took 20 minutes for the waiter to even acknowledge us. There was a couple that came in after us that had a 7:45pm reservation but we were seated at the same time. They were served drinks and an appetizer before we were even seen by the waiter which was the same one. Once the waiter finally arrived he made no attempt to apologize for how we were treated even though we let him know how long we’d been waiting. His demeanor in general was like he already had one foot out of the door. When my girlfriend and I come here we always order the same thing. If there are scallops on the menu we’ll get two orders of those otherwise, we get one order of the mozzarella and tomatoes, the mussels in the red sauce, and the salmon entree and we share everything. So this particular visit was no different. It seemed like the cooks were also in a rush because the scallops and salmon were over cooked, the mussels were salty because the sauce had been too reduced, and the mozzarella and tomatoes were under seasoned. These judgements are again based on the numerous times we’ve been to this restaurant having the same meal. Although the food was not up to par, I have to say the service is what really made the night go wrong. I was so put off by our waiter that I asked to have my entree wrapped up as soon as he brought it out (I saw and tasted that the salmon had been over grilled later on that night when I actually ate it). The waiter literally made me lose my appetite which is why he received $0 tip. The only upside was the bus woman marina who we see when we go there. I don’t know the waiters name but he was the only male waiter at that time.
Took my Mom and GF out for a little Saturday Dinner. The Calamar, Pizza and Penne Vodka were amazing! Definitely will be coming back!
We always have a great experience here - the food is amazing, the ambience is very warm and welcoming - just an all around great time.
Wha a great place! Great food - family atmosphere. We will be back!
I’ve been coming here for 5 years. Always great food and good service. No complaints at all
One of the best Italian food I have eaten in a while. I am never disappointed when eating there. The staff is super friendly and you don't feel rush to leave or order your food.
