pleasant ambience, attentive service

Five of us recently ate at Graziella's, with mixed responses. As appetizers, we shared a plain pizza and deep-fried battered calamari - both very tasty, and a grilled octopus, which was a bit too chewy. The signature chicken parmigiana is a very large serving, with a tasty tomato sauce. The... read more

We enjoyed the dinner that I'm sure every Italian Mama makes her family, and I felt at home in the restaurant. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, margarita pizza, eggplant parmesan, and veal. The atmosphere was comfortable, and we were seated right away on a Saturday evening. The crowd did pick up, and we noticed that our service was a bit... More

Graziellas is a wonderful neighborhood place in the Fort Greene / Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. They have very good brick over pizza, wonderful and fresh salads and tasty Italian dishes. The place can get full at dinner time. There is no type of person who goes to eat here other than someone who wants great brick oven pizza. Our... More

We had been in Brooklyn for a week and wanted to have dinner at a place where the locals eat. This was it. If you want a traditional family dinner at a reasonable price at a place where kids are welcome, this is it. Pizza, pasta, seafood. They had it all in a very large menu. A nice wine list... More

There will most likely be too many children and one of them might be crying or throwing a tantrum. They might be understaffed and the service as a result of that might be slow. This is not a meal in Little Italy with the flair and performance. However, if you want great food (far beyond just the pizza that everyone... More

I highly recommend Graziella's for a great place to get authentic Good Sicillian brick oven pizza is hard to find and Graziella's does it best! I took my husband there for his birthday when we were dating (a sicillian) and he loved it! We were back several times because the grilled octopus appetizer and pasta dishes are also very fresh...

We were staying in Brooklyn for 5 nights and we had dinner twice at Graziella's as it was so good! The first time we ordered two large pizzas for us 4 and had too much (they're huge) so we took some home, so the 2d time we had 2 small pizzas and desserts. We tried different pizzas and toppings (Arugula,... More

I saw this restaurant on "The best thing I ever ate" and Tod Allen talked about the arugula pizza. When they brought the pizza out I was a bit intimidated by the amount of arugula on the pizza but I'm glad I tried it. It was really good. Definitely balanced and the arugula was not overpowering. Also try the mussels,... More

Real brick-oven, gluten free pizza? You bet. I heard of this place through my partner who happens to work with the owner's sister-in-law. Our party of three headed out for dinner on a chilly Autumn evening. There's a strong trattoria feel here. The decor is quaint and simple, nothing fancy, and everyone gets a direct view of the brick oven.... More

There is a lot of good pizza in NY, but Graziella's is by far one of the top. My husband and I have been going here since it opened. Now we have a son and bring him. The space is great for families and friends. I highly recommend going here for an enjoyable meal and atmosphere.
