This is the perfect restaurant for a good celebration. The vibe is cheerful and friendly with personal service from the owner/chef, the food is freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. The pizzas deserve a special mention if you like the thin based version with lots of good quality toppings, the portions of all meals are generous and there is a good selection of dishes on the menu to choose from. The restaurant is always busy so bookings are a must for bigger groups but we've often just popped in for a quick bite and managed to get a table for two without too much of a wait.

If you are looking for authentic traditional Italian food - this is the place! The atmosphere is friendly and the staff were especially polite. The service was out of this world, as was the variety of dishes on offer. Highly recommended and will definitely be returning again and again. Make a note to book as it gets busy!

The atmophere is fantastic so cozy and traditional you feel completely welcome. The food is also excellent best Italian food in Johannesburg and some traditional dishes which are hard to come by anywhere else. A must when in the area.

Instead of going to a stuffy elegant restaurant we tried Da Graziella for a 65th birthday party. What a great time was had by all. Italian owned and run (including Mama chef), the food is superb and the desserts mouthwatering. There were 12 people at the celebration and each and every one phoned the next day to rave about the food and vibe. My best Italian restaurant by far for food. The atmosphere is just beyond description as it is lively and yet has the coming home to family feeling. The cherry on top is the great service. We have introduced other people to Da Graziella and never had any complaints. There is parking and a parking guard - even if you have to travel to it, it is worth it.

If you are ever looking for more than a decent Italian restaurant this is the place. Traditional is the name of the game as this is a family run restaurant. You will need to book on a weekend, come rain or shine as they get really busy. Any pasta or pizza dish is great. Some pasta is also made by the restaurant as you can't get better than fresh. For vegetarians you always have a great selection in an Italian restaurant so there is no worry here. The quality, service and price is very good. Suppli is not an easy thing to find in JHB, unless you make it yourself, so luckily you can enjoy it here.
