Fantastic Experience on a warm spring evening. We enjoyed the Beet Salad, Cacio de Pepe, Halibut and Veal Chop. Service was attentive. My only issue was with the limited wine list. We will definitely be back.

For the most part it was a great experience. We were seated outside on the front patio.
It was a bit loud from the kids driving down the street showing us how loud there cars can be, (as if we were interested). I'm definitely going back

Went th Grata about a month ago, thought it was very good. Went back two days ago/
wife ordered eggplant parmigiana,she said it was the worst she had ever had.
I ordered ziti with roasted pork, The dish was very dry and the pork and ziti were burned at the corners, the dish was grossly over cooked

Heard good things about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We weren’t disappointed! The braised short ribs over creamy polenta and roasted carrots was absolutely delicious. My husband had the calamari steak with pasta and lemon capers. He loved it! The steak was almost the size of the plate! Will definitely return!!

We had dinner on the patio. The seating and décor is nice but the road noise was loud. I will try for an inside table next time.

Our first time eating here. We had the Grata buratta which was wonderful as well as the beet salad, also quite nice. We both ordered the truffle encrusted bass. That was a bit of a letdown. It was rather bland, was lacking seasoning, although it was cooked just right.
We will still return to try another dish at some time.
Some restaurants seem to skimp on the important things that make or break a dish. They skimp on seasoning.

We went in a date to Grata in Windsor because we were craving Italian food and it has good reviews. I completely stand by the 4 and 5 star reviews! The restaurant was beautiful, the outdoor seating was spacious and accommodating, and they had heaters running to keep us warm! The menu presents many options ranging across a wide pallet of flavor. Neither of us drink, so the win list was forsaken… But it seemed extensive!

We chose to sit outside and enjoy the fresh crisp air. The Restaurant itself was quiet, but unfortunately there is a lot of road noise. That’s out of their control; so I don’t penalize them for that. Just be aware that if you plan to be seated outside they you will hear people driving by with their loud exhaust. It wasn’t too bad.

Pricing was fair, what you would expect from an upscale eatery. The portions were large and we both brought food home with us. I strongly recommend Grata Italian Eatery!

The food was delicious! All of it! The cocktails could use a little more inspiration, but you can’t beat a $5 table wine.

All of the food was very salty, some even inedible. We had good service though and they quickly brought out a second option for the dinner that was inedible. Great Italian sodas!

This was my second visit. First I wouldn't consider this an Italian restaurant so please keep that in mind if that's what you're looking for. Due to lack of a good pasta option I decided to order the New York strip and it would just okay while overpriced for what you get. Service was non existent, staff seemed young and inexperienced. We poured our own wine and were never asked if all was ok. What we really enjoyed was the outdoor seating area and good company with friends. Will definitely give it another try but I wouldn't recommend it to others just yet.

We had 9 people including two babies. This was our first indoor dining in over a year. The staff was very accommodating when we had to take the toddler on several exploring walks around the block. The food was excellent and we love that such a great restaurant is here in Windsor.

Great service an delicious food. My husband had the spicy clam pasta and I had the peppercorns and parmasean cheese with greens. Plenty of leftover for the next night. Started with the calamari appetizer that was on a bed of fresh greens in a yummy dressing. The Panama cotta desert was heaven! Wonderful menu!
