This was our 4th visit, 3 for dinner and 1 for lunch. Very nice but not too "ta ta" . They have an early bird menu and a regular menu, both with numerous choices. I had Shrimp Marinara and my husband had Chicken Sorrentino, both delicious and very nice portion sizes.Our waiter, Alberto, was superb, very attentive. It was my... More

By far one of the best Italian dining experiences you'll have. We attended to celebrate our God daughter's graduation from USFSP. The friendly atmosphere was evident when many in the restaurant including staff applauded our God daughter as she came in still in her cap and gown. The olive oil is fresh and goes well with the bread that is... More

This was once a fail proof spot for dinner downtown but no more. We met friends for dinner and came away writing the restaurant off our list of reliable favorites. Before we even entered the front door we were greeted outside by a worker warning us that our car would be towed if we strayed into the Publix lot next... More

A great dining experience. Terrific service and excellent food. Our server was very knowledgeable and offered great wine and menu recommendations. The portions were hearty and with none of that pretentious gastro snobness, where the quality of the restaurant is based on how little food is served on a large plate for a large sum of money. We will certainly... More

Had never been to St. Pete before and looked on Tripadvisor for a restaurant to have dinner at with my wife. Booked a 8 pm reservation and wow ! Our waiter was full of enthusiasm and was very entertaining. We both had the specials that evening, pork osso buco for me and the shrimp pasta for the lady. The portions... More

Try this place while traveling in St Pete and was very impressed. Went on a Tuesday evening and place was full, and it is a very cold night in Florida and in a dowtown area. Food was excellent, had to sit at the bar, but server there was pleasant and was able to handle all orders from bar area, plus... More

We were on our way to a concert and made reservations at the Gratzzi. We were seated and drink order was taken. We noticed people that came in after us (party of 2 only) received their drinks and bread before us. When we asked the waiter he said he'd check. He than brought our Martini's which were only half full.... More

This is a very nice Italian Eatery that has a neighborhood-local feel. The sevice is excellent. We had the calamari which was good, but not unique. My wife has a Swordfish dinner that was delicious and not dry or fishy. I had the Cavetelli Bada- Bing: prepared at tableside-it is very cheesy and heavy-too heavy to have as an entree-I... More

Yes, the food here was very good, and the service was very personable. If I were in St. Pete again, I might consider going back - with one giant caveat. Gratzzi taught me a lesson I should have learned before I reached my mid-50s: ask the price of specials. I usually don't, since I assume that, unless a special has... More

Great food, properly prepared and served. Excellent attentive servers. Well worth the trip since it is not easy to find, but again, worth it.
