Graziano's is a family style Italian restaurant serving handcrafted foods made from fresh natural ingredients.
We bake our pizzas in an authentic wood-fired brick oven. The combination of apple, cherry and oak hardwoods at temperatures of 700 to 900 degrees make for a distinctive flavor and crisp crust.

Veronica was an amazing waitress. Food was delicious, only problem was the grilled calamari. There was more greens than calamari.

We had a party of 8, with some less than decisive, and our server was excellent in navigating that.

The only problem is that they delayed in seating us despite our reservation. We were told that there were too many orders for the kitchen to handle. If that is the case, then they should have reduced the number of reservations they accepted. Good management knows what the kitchen can handle. Another option would have been to explain this to us and seat us on time. We were not in a hurry and would have been willing to work with the kitchen schedule.

Food was really good but service was very slow and we were never offered appetizer plates. We had to grab extra plates from another table.

Normally we love Graziano's, great atmosphere. That night seemed off a bit. Grilled Calamari was chewy and my Chicken Vesuvio was not up to par. Food was not as good as in the past for us. Service was OK.
I would recommend Graziano's however.

Always great service and great food at Graziano's! Our group had the eggplant parm, the pork chops and the fettucine and everyone loved it - especially the tiramisu!

Always love coming to Graziano's when visiting our family in Chicago. It's very family friendly. Service is terrific and the food as well. Love the pizzas! Our 8 year old grandson really enjoys the muscles!! We were pleasantly surprise when they brought a free appetizer just for making our reservation on line. Graziano's servers are terrific. They were so kind as they brought out an ice cream sundae with a candle for my birthday. Not sure how they knew it was my birthday, but, another nice surprise. We will definitely be back again.

It was our first time at the restaurant and we enjoyed it very much. The food was good, especially the soup. The service was also good. The only complaint I had was that the peas in the chicken Vesuvio were not cooked through and were pretty crunchy. Kind of easy to overlook since everything else was delicious. We will return to this restaurant again.

I would recommend Graziano's on a normal day, but not at Thanksgiving. We were at Graziano's on Thanksgiving in the middle of the afternoon. It looked like tables were added and it was very crowded and noisy. Graziano's should have had a cut-off for reservations when too many people signed up.
We had difficulty talking to each other because of the noise. We felt rushed. We were served our salads and soup and IMMEDIATELY, the main course arrived. We sent it back because it would be cold when we were ready to eat and there was not enough room on our table. The soup had spilled over the bowl onto the bottom plates and the salad was just lettuce, lettuce, and more lettuce with 3 grape tomatoes. It was not the regular salad we get during the year.
There were not enough people to wait on tables and remove our plates. The waitress had to do everything and she got our orders mixed up several times.

Great Thanksgiving option. Those who want turkey et al can get it. Those who want the regular menu can use that.
Worked great for family members who had a second dinner to attend later in the day. They got a light meal and were still able to join us.

Specia occasion was noted on Open Table (both husbands had birthdays.) I also mentioned it to the hostess. Nothing was acknowledged. In the past with an Open Table reservation we were given a bruschetta appetizer. The waitress was marginal . She forgot drinks and brought salads mixed with dressing when asked for dressing on the side. The food was decent but the service was average. I’m the past, a sass
Came with the entree-now it is an extra charge. Just an okay value now.

I miss the all you can eat soup and salad. Also, having to pay extra for soup or salad with your meal, is not appreciated.

Excellent. My wife mistakenly ordered the wrong pizza. We mentioned this to the server who immediately asked the manager, Jake, to come to our table. As soon as he heard our dilemma, he most graciously offered to swap the one we ordered & bring us the one we wanted. Both are examples of exemplary employees helping build good Will. Thank you.

We had a reservation for 7:00pm, but did not get seated until almost 8:00 pm. The server was extremely rude and the service was very slow. We had to ask for bread and extra plates. We also asked for separate checks and were told that he could only accept 2 credit cards.

We were seated immediately next to another group. Our tables were literally pushed together.

Graziano's consistently knocks it out of the park with their dining options. After all the years of being in business, they remain one of the top places to visit! Wonderful food, great staff, friendly and conscientous service and kudos on the refresh of the dining room! Keep up the good work!
