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.

Another terrific meal here - we always start off with the toasted mozz, which is fantastic with such a fresh sauce. I had the chicken parm, which was big enough for three meals! Had some amazing desserts too - especially the profiteroles!

Love this place! Fun atmosphere and good value for food. Was a little busy this last visit probably because of turn about dance, but would still go back. Had a good time.

Me and my wife went to Graziano's for the first time for a Saturday evening date night. We just moved to the area and have been looking for a local neighborhood spot for good drinks, food and atmosphere. We got more than we expected. The bartenders make an excellent old fashioned and we loved our pasta dishes. The goat cheese appetizer was just OK and a little lacking. Everyone from the host staff, bartenders and our server provided outstanding service! We loved our evening at Graziano's and can't wait to return and try other menu options.

We had reservation, but it was no respected. They were sitting people accordingly they arrived, and that’s ok. But if they are not going respect the reservation rule, don’t take them.

I realize it was Valentine's Day and the restaurant was busy, but we only saw the waitstaff 3 times which is not like the restaurant. Rated foid 4 stars because we were really disappointed that we needed to purchase salad separately and that dressing is the best in town. Dinner was overall was good but not special like it could have been.

We made a last minute reservation on line and were extremely happy to get a spot on Valentines Day. Just for doing it on line we were given a complimentary order of Bruschetta. Our server Luis was everything you would want when dining out. Quite pleasant and informative. Very attentive without being overbearing. He seemed to know when to check on us and when to give us our privacy. The food was delicious. Lasagna wasn’t on the menu but he managed to get it for us anyway. It doesn’t hurt to ask if you don’t see something you like. I had the Parmesan crusted Cod and it was fantastic. The wine list was extensive but not so large that you get lost trying to find something and it is reasonably priced. Overall it was a great evening. We will be back.

Always on the loud side, but the food is worth it! Really gets crowded, so reservations are highly recommended. Kids can watch pizzas being made through the glass, and will usually get a ball of dough o play with.

The food is always good and fresh tasting. Prepare for a take home of leftovers or get salads and share a pasta. Their house dressing is the BOMB! I would have given it all 5 stars but it was pretty noisy and our waitress, who was very nice....spoke too softly. We had to keep saying WHAT?
My Manhattan was wonderful...love the big ice cubes . That's how the pros do it.

Caesar salad with chicken was your typical Caesar salad but still tasty. The dressing was just enough in amount. So the lettuce was not soggy. Chicken, delicious.

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 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.
