I had been here once before for lunch about a year ago. I liked it very much. This visit I did take out. Appetizer, salad and pizza = $45. Ouch! Especially since I wasn't overly impressed with the food. Eggplant rollatini was just ok. The pomadore sauce was tasty. The seafood salad was good, but on the small side. The... More

Visited Grato for the first time Jan. 16 with a friend. We sat at bar and ordered dinner to dine at bar. Bartenders/waiters were very inviting, friendly, and knew their food and drinks inside out. Food arrived quickly and was delicious. It was such a nice change of pace to hear wait staff able to describe any dish we asked... More

Ok, now. I am four months past the " un-birthday " review. Gave Grato another chance as it is in our neighborhood AND, more importantly, we were asked to do so by the professional hospitality staff. Never better. We all acknowledged the dismal last visit but the professional hospitality staff outdid themselves tonight. Service was great; food was hot and... More

Came for lunch and was served by two very polite waiters. I had the Pancetta pasta dish and my companion had the salmon. Both dishes were amazing. Also had the Red Velvet Cheesecake for desert....another great choice. You can't go wrong at the Grato. Great food and great service.

One of the best restaurants, hands down. The food is very, very good, the staff are truly wonderful, and the atmosphere is great. They are always so sweet to me and my husband and it's the one place nearby that I can guarantee I will have a great meal at, every single time.

The waiters were friendly and knowledgable. The place was rustic and the atmosphere warm and pleasant. However, the service was very very slow, the food was really bland (and I'm so easily pleased), and it was overpriced. I just hate slow service!

Food has gone way down hill. Portions (especially the salads) have been reduced, entrees served cold and with little attention to presentation. The only thing that remains good is the bread and ricotta pesto spread. Wine pours are ridiculously small for the prices and desserts are uninspired and should at least, change with the seasons for a little variety. Service... More

Grato is a fine Italian restaurant located at the intersection of Route 10 west and Route 53. The food was remarkable on the evening I was there with friends. The apps was fresh, with many choices from vegetarian to seafood and meats. The soups and salads were very tasty and sizable portions. Our meal was memorable. The steak was cooked... More

About a month ago, we, as long time patrons of the Harvest Restaurant group, had enjoyed such a nice meal at GRATO that we decided to go there for my birthday dinner. My husband made the reservations with the REAL manager about five weeks ago... Alas, it was so awful that Valerie apologized to the extent that they had ruined... More
