This restaurant was outstanding. Food was fantastic, service was top notch and ambience was classy and urban.
We picked this restaurant primarily based on other reviews and it did not disappoint.
Can't wait to go again. Portions were quite ample and quality of food was very skilled and oh so delicious.

Excellent food and atmosphere - I ordered stuffed shrimp which was excellent, others ordered spaghetti and meatballs and chicken parm - both enjoyed. Looking forward to another visit to try other items on the menu

Always enjoy this place. Great atmosphere, great Italian fare and great, welcoming service. Only complaint is if you are two and not in a booth the tables are very small and barely have room to put food on table with drinks.

Went for a family dinner while visiting St. Petersburg, service was extremely slow even though the restaurant wasn't crowded. Our waiter was super nice, but didn't seem to be apologetic for the long wait to take our order, let alone how long it took to bring our food out.
the food was just fair. My husbands soup came out cold and my daughter's penne ala vodka was pretty bad it was super watery and just tasted like it was regular tomato sauce. Not a fan of this restaurant and we were told the chef was from Italy.

The service was superb, from being greeted by one of the owners, to the friendly hostess, to our outstanding server; the staff made this a memorable night. When making my OpenTable reservation, I made a mistake and selected a time not available (I chose 7:45, but the reservations were on the half hour). Despite being very busy, and having just told the patrons in front of us there would be a 15-20 min wait, the owner had a table bused and reset for us in a matter of minutes and apologized for MY mistake!

Cavatelli Bada Bing is a noted signature dish. It is prepared table side . The dish is finalized in a wheel of reggiano Parmesan cheese. Ingredients are homemade cavatelli, vodka, chopped tomatoes, basil and loads of reggiano cheese. In addition they make a fantastic wedding soup. Wine list very good and service exceptional ❤️

I was immediately greeted warmly upon my arrival by the friendly staff. My table was ready and my friend and I took advantage of the price-fixe menu. The mixed green salad was topped with a light balsamic vinegarette dressing which did not overpower the fresh greens. We each had the Mahi-Mahi over spinach and it was perfectly cooked with a very nice sauce that complemented the dish. The mini cannoli was a perfect finish to a delicious meal. Our waiter, Jorge was knowledgable and attentive. I was very pleased with the overall dining experience.

I loved the relaxed atmosphere and friendly and efficient service. Appetizers of Crab stuffed mushrooms, Shrimp Arrabeata, and Clams Posillipo were fresh and absolutely delicious as well as cooked to perfection . Entrees of Cavatelli Bada Bing (prepared expertly, tableside) and Linquine Pescatore followed and were likewise great as well as their wine selection. This restaurant is truly a gem and definitely one of the very best Italian Restaurants, I have ever dined at.
Grateful for Gratzzie
Great food, great service. We arrived a little early and had to wait a few minutes for a table. The wait went just slightly beyond our reserved time and the host got us drinks. That kind of care for the guest makes for a very nice experience. The rest of the service was equally attentive and the food was delightful. Definitely will go back.
Wow. Made reservations for early Friday ...
Wow. Made reservations for early Friday dinner before show at the Mahaffey center. Service outstanding. Great decor. And the food was fantastic. The bada Bing pasta flambéd table side was excellent. Overall experience wonderful. Will be back.
Reminded me of a wonderful Italian restaurant in the town I grew up! Fantastic good. Highly recommend the artichoke appetizer and the Half duck for dinner. It's been forever since I had a Great duck!! Great comfortable place. Differently will make this a good to often.
Everything from start to finish was perfect. I was even pleasantly surprised that my reservation request to be seated in our own area so that we could celebrate my friends Birthday was honored! Our waiter was very knowledgable, friendly and very attentive. The food was to die for and the flourless chocolate torte was out of this world! So much so, that we all ordered a piece to go lol! Bottom line, we had a great experience and we all intend to return! Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Great meals, always!
Grazzi has a great reputation in St. Petersburg and I have been there before, but now for a while. It was great getting back there to remember the delicious food and wonderful bread. Most Florida Italian restaurants do not serve good Italian bread and it is shame. Grazzi does and it's just a part of their overall wonderfulness. I've been for lunch, early bird dinner and regular dinner and all have been top rated.

I feel the taste of the food does not Taste like the good ITALIAN food I expect.
Veal and soups were weak and not tasty.
Meat balls and spaghetti last time were also poor.
We have come regularly before concerts and shows at MAHAFFEY. But we have be progressively disappointed.
There is no shortage of Italian eateries in St.Petersburg, or most places for that matter. Gratzzi, however, keeps delivering, time after time, year after year. Not only do they do the traditional fare at top levels, they also keep things interesting with specials and non-traditional items. Recently we were treated to the elk chops in Barolo mushroom reduction with smashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. The was cooked to a perfect medium rare, tender and falvorful. The sauce was to die for, complementing all elements on the plate perfectly. On Mondays you get half off bottles of wine under $100, and that's when we strike; a perfect opportunity to revel in Barolo, Brunello, Amarone, or other typically high-end libation with foods that they complement and elevate so well. Our server, David, was nothing short of exceptional, both on service and knoweldge of wine and fare. We can only hope that Gratzzi maintains its standards and continues to serve what it does so well.
Not as good as usual
We have eaten at gratzi many,many times and always had delicious food. We have recommend it to so many people. But this time it pretty mediocre. I had the whole wheat meditrianian pasta and it was dry and tasteless. We decided it must have been a relief chef. We will try again.
Outsanding Service and Food
The staff really made us feel welcome as we waited for friends. A party of five with two children, they set-up a table outside as we waited, bringing bread and drinks. They seated us in a very comfortable table, service was outstanding and the food was even better. Great atmosphere, very vibrant, but relaxing. All the staff were very thankful upon our departure for the business. I would return in a heartbeat. Thanks!
Another couple got together with us to have dinner before going to the Dali Museum on a Thursday evening. We got there in time for their early bird special which was an exceptional value. The selection was good and everyone enjoyed their meal. Not only was the food great but our server was helpful and attentive. We were able to walk to the Dali Museum from the restaurant which helped us get in a little exercise after such a wonderful meal. Definitely plan to come back again and would highly recommend this restaurant.

The place was packed for a Tuesday night. I knee it would be god food. It was excellent The God was fresh authentic and tasted wonderful. Service was solid and recommendations were on point. Would go back again. Enjoy!
After visiting the Dali, we caught the early dinner and enjoyed the meatloaf and chicken/pasta dinners. Both were very tasty, as was the pasta soup and creme b. dessert. Our waiter was attentive and the ambiance was nice. We even managed to park close by on the street :)
This was a great surprise. We were visiting St Pete after moving away many years ago. From the greeting at the door until the lemonchello at the end it was amazing. Our waiter Jorge was well Informed and couldn't have paid greater attention to detail. Artichoke appetizer delicious. 'Bad a Bing 'pasta was probably the best pasta dish I have had In a long while . Dessert was great too. They were really busy so make a reservation! We will definitely go back.

Gratzzi Grill is absolutely TERRIFIC for any occasion. We invited out of town guests to join us for lunch and they were impressed. The menu choices, even for lunch, are extensive, interesting and nicely priced. The staff is very friendly and accommodating to any particular dietary issues. To say we enjoy Gratzzi Grill is an understatement!!
