Fairly expensive... Decent Italian, but not anything spectacular.

Call me silly, but I have a hard time loving Italian restaurants. Having been on a culinary tour of Italy, and being a fairly competent home cook, I just have a hard time paying exorbitant prices for pastas and sauces that I make regularly at home. Grazie truly wants to be all that and a bag of... read more

I threw my mom a surprise birthday party at Grazie. We had about 25 people. The staff, servers, and management were so thorough and professional in helping set up the party and were fun to work with! The food was delicious- We ordered off of the special event menu. Everyone, including some full blooded Italians - loved the food and... More

I've been here three times (too many) because my hubby is a HUGE Italian fan. The first time I ordered a pasta dish and it was awful. The pasta was horribly overcooked and stuck to the bottom of the bowl. I couldn't even eat it. It was like burnt mush -- terrible!! The second time I came, I stuck with... More

We dined at Grazie tonight and were disappointed. The restaurant has wonderful ambiance, but the food and the service didn't match the ambiance. Our waitress was inattentive and hurried the entire night - we wanted to slow down and enjoy the night (the restaurant was not too full) and our waitress seemed intent on rushing us through dinner in order...

My daughter and I were in town to visit IU. We ate ay Grazie Thursday night - both of us ordered salads - different ones - both salads were drenched in salad dressing and quite heavy on the vinegar making each bite almost painful because of the heavy vinegar. We did order the brie soup, which was delicious. The waitress... More

Wait staff was friendly. Kitchen was out of several things and these outages weren't known to wait staff. Multiple re-do's on the order. Salads were very good. (Kale, Ceasar, and Garden) Manicotti was very good. Spaghetti and Meatballs was disappointing. Bread was good. Not sure we will go back, there are so many good choices in Btown, but we were... More

We have eaten here several times in the past few months. The menu is good italian food, some of it a bit overpriced for what it is. The food has been consistently good and the service is always good. There is an outdoor patio, if the weather is nice, great place to sit and people watch on the square in... More

We visited Grazie! Italian Eatery at the recommendation of our hotel staff and we were not disappointed. The food was phenomenal and we would go back again in a heartbeat. The service was a little slow and our server didn't seem too interested in helping us, but we excused that because we were there later in the evening. Overall, I... More

Tonight was a cold night. Restaurant pretty empty. But this restaurant is probably accurately rated as the 149th best restaurant in Bloomington. Caprese Salad was functional. (Tomatoes not the best; Mozzarella not the best...but fine) Bruschetta was pretty good. Covered with chunks of tomato that you could not balance on top in order to eat without them falling on the...
