I have been to St. Petersburg 3 times over the last 5 years. This is one of the only restaurants I've eaten at each time. First time, I had a great meal, good wine, good service. Second time, my aunt & uncle drove from Leesburg to join us there for an evening. The service was ok, and the food wasn't... More

We ended up heading to Gratzzi after one of our favorite Italian restaurants down the road had a wait of over 45 minutes, and what a great little, unexpected choice it turned out to be! We had to sit outside since they were having quite a busy Friday night, however, the inside looked really adorable and like it would be... More

I have been going to this restaurant since they were located at Baywalk and we try to go here at least once every other month. The last time we ate here was on Dec 13th, 2014 when my wife and I took out our Moms before the symphony at the Mahaffey. We have never had a bad meal and the... More

Zuppa de Pesca is one of my favorite meals. Some places throw 2 shrimp on some linguine and there you have it. This plate was COVERED with the entire ocean! Yum! Desserts were great as well. We picked four different ones and passed them around the table. Great waiter, as well.

Although the seating in the restaurant is way too tight and slightly uncomfortable, the cuisine is outstanding. The signature dish of bada bing parmesan pasta with tomatoes and fresh basil prepared flaming with vodka at table side is fabulous and showy. The salads are generous and contain many different components and is unusual - chick peas, different greens, etc. The... More

For a restaurant situated so close to a hotel that frequently hosts conventions, one would assume Grazzi would have their lunch rush act together, but they do not. My group of four waited over 40 minutes for wraps and salads- items that should not have taken nearly that long to prepare. Our waiter successfully avoided us for the entire duration... More

Average experience. The waitress was very friendly and attentive but the food took very long on what was supposed to be a quick lunch trip. I even ordered the special, thinking it would be faster. The waitress brought us complimentary soup since our order was slow, which was very nice and good pasta y fagioli. The mahi was very good... More

While some have mentioned that they've had mixed experiences, I've always had great service and delicious food at Gratzzi. I've found the owner/host to be accommodating -- even bringing us limoncello at the end of a meal after a special occasion. The "Bada Bing" parmesan/pasta dish that they make at your table is mouth watering and a great appetizer to... More

Really good food, we came in without reservation and they give is a table for 7 people, chicken parmigiana was awesome, Italian wedding soup is delicious, salads are well balanced, the 'show' of mac and cheese is the best!

I wish I could give less stars but Yelp will not allow me. They're lucky, because what I experienced at this poor excuse for a restaurant I've never experienced in all my years of dining. To start off we're from out of town so we're a little lost, we drove over 300 miles to spend a few days in St... More
