Nice, but pricey

We had delicious main courses and attentive service at Gratzi. The concern comes from being charged further for bread and whether the overall price of the meal was worth the cost. My penne was quite tasty, but whether a $20 price tag was justified??? The atmosphere is very pleasing and we had an... read more

We ignored this place for a few years because the food had gone downhill. They started a new menu this summer, and we've been back three times! (Few places are nicer then Gratzi for outdoor dining in the summer on Main St.) Favorites include seafood risotto with a touch of red pepper flake (get it!), pappardelle with Bolognese, spaghetti with...

There were 6 of us for dinner on a Sunday evening ... we had reservations and good thing, the restaurant was very busy. We ate there because I remembered fondly a great meal while on a business trip to Ann Arbor 8 years ago .. and the restaurant did not let us down. Very knowledgeable waiter, he answered all questions,... More

We have eaten here frequently. Awhile back Gratzi went from the crusty Italian bread to focaccia, which we didn't like. But now they serve no bread with the meal. Really? At an Italian restaurant? Have they ever been to Italy?

Super Great food !Great Birthday deal on the day of your birthday! Outdoor patio! Super great service! Gratzi, is an elegant Italian restaurant with distinct style, and was founded in downtown Ann Arbor, Mich. in December 1987. Formerly the Orpheum Theater, which screened the most popular movies of the day in the 1930s, Gratzi maintains the flair of the dramatic... More

We've eaten at Gratzi many times. Recently new owners took over. The old menu was very descriptive and the food was delicious. The new menu simply lists the items and the waiter didn't know enough to be able to answer our questions. When the food came it was mediocre.

I used Open Table Reservation Service to book a 7:30 arrival on a Wednesday evening. My request of a second floor window table was honored and we were welcomed and seated immediately. The staff here are very professional, well groomed, very knowledgeable and friendly. The Manager should be commended! Lovely interior with history, quaint setting and small bar. Menu includes...

I'm not sure why folks continue to hit up this restaurant. I've tried it a couple of times and have been consistently disappointed. The pasta was overcooked and the sauce was watery. I don't understand how this place continues to do business... you're better off driving a couple miles to Paesano if you want decent Italian food.

It's not easy choosing a place to dine in Ann Arbor with the endless options but Gratzi is easily a top choice. Our recent visit today for lunch reconfirmed this for my husband and I. While the menu doesn't give descriptions of dishes, our server did an excellent job of filling in the blanks plus giving great recommendations. We ended... More
