Delicious pasta

I was starving for pasta since days. The next door guys of the Tabor Road Tavern had recommended the place. Very warm welcome, nice seating, perfect service. Took quite some time to cook the pasta but it was worthwhile to wait - delicious! And I tried their Ghost Pony handcrafted lager beer. Very... read more

We come here for a lot of special occasions. It's got a very nice decor inside and usually very helpful staff. The base menu always has great choices, but the specials are usually their standouts! Decent to large size portions. It's a pricier restaurant option but completely worth it. The house branded draft beers are tasty (from Trap Rock Brewery)... More

A great place for a relaxing dinner. The food choices are very interesting and well prepared.The entire staff makes you feel at home as soon as you arrive. I can't wait to go back again to try some of the other menu items. Also their homemade beers brewed by their sister restaurant were awesome!!

I've been to Grato several times now, each time has been excellent. Joe took great care of me twice last week. The food is largely local and/or wild, lots of organic selections. They are happy to make dietary adjustments. I always have the caesar salad, last week I had grilled salmon and swordfish the second day. All was very good.... More

My husband and I had a very pleasant lunch at Grato's yesterday. The food was fabulous. The mozzarella appy was great! I had a panini which I'd not had before; it was very tasty and the bread was wonderful and not greasy at all! My husband had pasta, also very good. Had to wait a while for my chocolate torte,...

Food was wonderful, but the service was deplorable. Asked for a sample of a wine, which I was brought, but no one ever came back and asked if it was okay and if I wanted a glass of wine. Asking for water was a chore. There were no bread plates/knives. When one of us asked for bread plate, they only... More

The staff was great. Very attentive. The appetizer of crispy shrimp over arugula with a light vinegar dressing was good. They might consider a warning that the shrimp were REALLY hot (cooking from frying - not spicy) which was unexpected on a cold salad. The pasta is horrible. Penne does not looked like over-sized elbows. Aldente does not mean NOT... More

I love this place, the service and the pasta! My favorite dish is My Friends Orecchiette. Just a nice treat to find a place that has the atmosphere, service and delicious food all in one. They make their own pasta! A great Italian place you should definitely try out. I keep coming back. Excellent for date night, business dinners/lunches, a... More

I've wanted to try this restaurant for a long time now and today I finally had the chance to. Now I wish I had just gone straight home and ate leftovers instead. My grilled shrimp were absolutely disgusting and my dish had to be sent back. Management came over to apologize and ask if they could make me something else,... More

My husband and I just moved to this area coming from Europe and really enjoyed this first visit at Grato. We'd definitely go again. We liked the interior decor and atmosphere. A bit of music but not too loud, and despite big family tables around us, it wasn't noisy, thanks to glass door partitions. We had a great lunch on... More
