Busy place on a Friday night. It's a byob. That is such a plus . Salad is the usual out of s bag from Costco?? House salad dressing tasted like wishbone . I had veal piccata. Taste right on, covered in mushrooms . Did I say totally smothered in mushrooms . Veal not all that tender but not bad either.... More

I had the Chicken Marcello (In My opinion it's Chicken Murphy) it is absolutely fantastic. The best chicken Murphy I've ever had. My wife had angel hair in vodka sauce with meatballs and it was great also. We had fresh mozzarella and roasted red peppers for an appetizer, which was great. My wife had a pasta fagoli soup which she... More

While on vacation by the NJ beaches, we found this gem of a restaurant. I can't even believe it. The food is amazing, with large portions. The price is reasonable and the service is quick, friendly and attentive. The décor is old-school, homestyle Italian: paneling on the walls, wooden tables and mellow lighting. The menu selection is fairly large (3... More

We were on a family vacation and had plans for dinner at a local seafood market. We didn't realize they closed early so we were out of luck and found ourselves driving around looking for a place to eat. Our kids saw the sign and we decided to take a chance. SO GLAD WE DID!! The food was home-cooked and... More

Came down to Point Pleasant to visit family and went here for dinner, our waitress was very nice. The homemade ranch dressing was AMAZING!!!!! The portions were so big and everything tasted great. They also have a good kids menu and pizza (though we did not try the pizza) A great family restaurant! Can't wait to go back!!!!!

Graziano's has always been one of my personal favorite restaurants ever since I was little. It may be smaller but has very good food and service. It can be a little pricey but the portions are decent sized and the quality of the food is fantastic.

The restaurant has been around since the 1960's and is family owed! They offer good Italian dinners and in healthy large portions! There is usually a line to get in, but moves quickly. The food is always good and staff funny and pleasant, making you feel like family. It is a byob establishment so bring your bottle of wine. This... More
