We decided on appetizers and wine for our post anniversary dinner. The Pinot Grigio was delightful and the Montepulciano was very good. We had the stuffed mushrooms and the clams and mussels combined and everything was outstanding. We completely enjoyed our evening and will return

I've been going for years. As a foodie I will say it's the best Italian restaurant in st. Petersburg
This site is horrible to operate ...I keeps erasing my words .... that are underlined it's infuriating
Nicknames are also stupid... you autopopulated and then told me it wasn't long enough

We have been coming to Gratzzi's for years and love it. Whether it's just the two of us or a large group we can always count on excellent service and food. We always recommend this place to friends that come into town and they rave about it.
Our dinner that night was wonderful, of course we had to have the Bada Bing and the Veal dish was excellent. But was very disappointed in the dessert. The lemon cake was excellent but the creme brûlée was watery and not very tasty, a true disappointment . Was so looking forward to the end of a perfect meal. Hopefully it was just a one time issue.

Sadly the pasta sauce we had with our main course was not appropriate for the dish. The marinara sauce is a fish sauce but was served with our sausage. We asked to speak to the manager but he did not come to our table. We have eaten here before and enjoyed it but not this time.

Very disappointed had to send veal dish back cuz so chewy andcameoutsamesame way whenowneraskedhowitwas isaid terrible. He dashed off and comped the dinner but never asked why itwas terrible. Female server also paid little attention. Not agood birthday celebration.

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 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!
Enjoyed it so much, we went twice!
Only in St Petersburg 4 days and found this gem on day one. We ate outside first then inside the second time. Ordered Lasagne Bolognese, Sea Bass Marechiaro, personal Pizza, Calamari and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms. Everything nothing less than YUM!!!! The mushrooms were an appetizer that I ordered as a main dish and good thing. There were six and I couldn't finish them. That table next to us ordered the Bada Bing. What an amazing presentation. The wait staff was very accommodating and personable. Wish we had more time. If we were locals...we'd be regulars.

We went for Mother's Day. We had a reservation for 5 ppl and we were squeezed at a table in the middle of the room. Every one of us was bumped into several times whether by the waiters and trays or other patrons moving their chairs in and out. The food was pricey, but the portions were substantial. I had seafood and several mussels were in my dish that were not opened. I was very ill for at least three days afterwards. I do not recommend this restaurant, it is over priced and very tight.
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.
