“One of my former favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

We have been regulars of this resturant for years. We dine there 2-3 times a month. we have also reccomended them highly over the years and made regulars out of friends. unfortunately, last night was the final visit.
The resturant has received a lot of notice as of late. It is now very difficult to get in even with a reservation we've had to wait. There is nowhere to wait either. The bar is small and generally taken up with people who decided to dine at the bar. There is no place to wait except in the asle where you feel like you are staring at people while they try to have a nice meal. also while you wait you are constantly movoing out of th way of busy waitstaff and hotesses.
Last night there were about 3 talbles inside and four tables outside that had just opened yet we were told we could not be seated. They said they it was because they had short staff yet the tables had just been vacated. A few minutes later people who arrived after us were seated at those tables and we were told we'd have to keep waiting.
We feel the restursant has become a bit stuffy as well. it is not the pleasant experience it once was, we now feel rushed through our meal. Also, I feel the once causual style is gone. I felt like they turned away two very regular customers last night who will not be returning...sad to say... It was the third time and three times is too many no matter how good the food might be.

“Excellent service & great food”

Loved the place, went there for dinner both alone and with a colleague. Span of menu is great - can have from light to really full. I am gluten intolerant and was able to find enough choice.

“Still Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had dined at the previous location in Bay Walk several times and enjoyed it. This was our first visit to the new location and we found it more appealing than before. The atmosphere is great, the food still very good and the service perfect. We dined before a show at the Mahaffey, as were most of the patrons. Although it was busy we never felt rushed or anxious we would not make the theatre. The nicest part was we were able to walk to theatre and avoid the very long into the parking lot. Wonderful!!!

“fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

amazing food, great service, wonderful price! My husband and I looked up Italian restaurants on google, this one came up, it was Friday night and we knew we may not get in. When we arrived there was one table left. We count ourselves blessed because it was the best food ever!

“Wonderful Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Gratzzi Grille is an excellent Italian Restaurant. The decor is modern and warm, the staff is well trained, and the food is wonderful. It is very loud, when crowded.
