This gem is an Italian standout in Sonoma County! The best meal my husband and I have experienced in a long time with exceptionally fresh ingredients, inventive combinations and friendly service. We had to stop ourselves from ordering a second melon and prosciutto bruschetta appetizer it was so delicious. We will return soon!

Food was excellent, served quickly and service was friendly. It was kind of loud, but it almost feels good to be back where people are gathering. We had Truffle and Scallop Risotto - excellent! We'll be back. You don't have to go to Hburg for great food.
Scallops were perfectly cooked and risotto was creamy, yet firm. Zeppole (the Italian beignet), panna cotta (Italian eggless flan) and mini cannoli (no explanation required) for dessert - all yummy.
P.S. They only serve beer and wine so if you are looking for cocktails you won't get them here.

We went to Grata for my husbands birthday, the ambiance was loud and busy, but it was a Saturday night so, that can be understandable. The food was great! As long as your going for the food, and not a quiet ambiance I highly recommend!

This was our first time in downtown Windsor and we really enjoyed the quaint atmosphere.

We really enjoyed Grata Italian Eatery. The server couldn't have been nicer and the food was absolutely delicious. They had a daily special salad with peaches that was scrumptious and the gigante beans with octopus was outstanding.

We ate outside, thankfully under the canopy, as the street trees acorns were pelting the roof as we ate! That's the only negative and we were well protected. We would gladly go back.

We were visiting the wineries in Sonoma County and had a craving for Italian food. Grata met that craving for sure. We had the Chicken Parmesan, Braised Ribs over Polenta, and the Seared Scallops over Truffle Risotto. All excellent. The service was great and the ambience was nice. We will go here again and recommend it highly.

We ate at Grata on our last night of a three day trip to Sonoma. The service was excellent and the food was great. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star was that one of our party ordered veal and it really seemed like he received a steak. Which he said was excellent. We were outside on a cool night, but the heaters provided plenty of warmth. There were six of us in our party. Everyone got something different and we each thought our meals were outstanding. I know someone who lives in Healdsburg and I recommended to her that she try Grata. No better compliment than to send someone you know the name of a restaurant to try!!

The baked oysters were divine! The crusted halibut and polenta was delicious. Great service. A little noisy but didn’t distract from our dining experience.

This Italian restaurant is definitely on its way to stardom! The Fritto Misto is the best I have ever tasted - lightly battered and fried calamari, fennel, squash on greens in a lovely light sauce. If I never ordered anything else, I would order this dish! However, since everything on the menu is delicious in my experience, it’s hard to choose! The pastas are delectable, as are main dishes, staff are cheerful and attentive, and portions generous for the price. We happily came home with some leftovers. Visitors from New York are coming soon and I am certain would be blown away by this marvelous restaurant. I only wish it were a bit more quiet, but the excellence of the food makes it worth it!

Not our first time at Grata and we will return. Service was efficient and friendly but things seemed a bit off in the kitchen. I ordered the halibut and it was very dry. Too bad cause the accompanying polenta, mushrooms and peas were delish. My husbands ziti was dried out on top as if it had been reheated in oven?

The Calamari saved the review. It was wonderful. I can’t believe that he broiled oysters smaller than a button and smothered them with hot chili sauce. He must not like oysters.
Halibut was dry and the rub was just pepper.
Shrimp with chili sauce made me gag.
Don’t ask what he did to the cannoli. You will cry.

We were staying in Windsor for a bicycling event in Santa Rosa and needed somewhere nearby with good food. Grata Italian Eatery was an excellent choice. The food was great, and the servings were large. We’ll definitely come back next time we’re in the area.

Delicious Italian restaurant with efficient and helpful waiters. Loved ordering the appetizers first and then choosing our main dishes after eating the appetizers when we knew how full we were already. Just wish they had limoncello to end the night.

Me pareció un muy buen lugar para cenar, excelente calidad principalmente en la comida y el servicio. Comí una ensalada y pulpo, ambos deliciosos. Se preocuparon por enviar a una persona extra para atenderme en mi idioma (español) y constantemente verificaban que todo estuviera bien. Hice reservación en línea, fue fácil y la respetaron.

Decided to try Grata after being inspired by Bobby and 2) the goat cheese and ricotta ravioli, a perfect blend of flavors enhanced by crispy pancetta. Dessert was the ricotta zepolli (donut holes tasting similar to churros) with a chocolate Nutella, the perfect ending to our meal. The wine selection was small for being in the wine country, but adequate. Great service, too!
Andiamo, mangiamo!
