Belated Valentine’s Day celebration with my spouse. The restaurant was very busy, but the staff was super attentive and we really enjoyed ourselves.

The wine was great, the anti pasta plate was perfect and delicious as it always is, always busy but worth getting reservations and planning ahead.

Maybe it was too much for the place on Valentines.. The Filet special was meh. The sauce was bland and had no real flavor. I like crisp veggies but cold and raw? Wine was excellent. Service was spotty but passable. Not worth the price for three on a special occasion.

We purchased 2 deserts for the desert tray to take home. When we got home my wife, daughter and I tried the deserts. The server did not tell us that one of the deserts contained nuts. Both my wife and daughter are allergic to nuts. Both needed to use their Epi Pens. We ended up taking my daughter to the emergency room. She was there for 4 hours. We called and reported it, but the manager but the manager never called back.

I had never eaten at Grazie but had heard good things about it. I took out-of-town business guests for dinner mid-week. Everyone was very pleased with the meal, the service, and the setting. We each decided we wanted a pasta dish, and ended up ordering the Cannelloni based on the recommendation of the staff, saying it was a guest favorite. 1 person at the table is an Italian food nut. He was quite happy with the choice, as we all were. We ordered 4 different salads; all were given high marks. It was a great experience and I'll definitely return.

I hosted a business dinner for my team at Grazie this week. The food was delicious, providing great options for the entire team, including our vegetarians. The selection of desserts is incredible and worth the extra cost at the end of the meal. Our server was prompt and courteous. The restaurant was very busy -- even for a Wednesday -- so be sure to make reservations!

We arrived 30 minutes early and was able to take us, which was great. The food was good but had hoped they had Eggplant Parmesan. Besides that the Calamari Piccata was great. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Had a wonderful time at Grazies. From the moment a walked in to the second we left the services was outstanding. Desiree, our waitress went above and beyond to elevate our dinning experience -she was very knowledgeable about all the different types of wine they have and recommended the best dishes in the house. I highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions!

I have been to Grazie many times over the years and always enjoyed it thoroughly. That is why I am hoping this visit was a one time thing....one of my guests had a great big green bug in the sautéed spinach serve w main plate. So much for that. 3 of us ordered the mixed seafood grill and if I could score a negative number that would be it...all were terribly dry, overcooked, etc.
the staff is friendly and attentive which has always been a plus for me.
Restaurant located in a strip mall is small and gets quite loud.....probably not best place for business dinner.
I will probably go back at some point in time but will take a while to get over this experience. Truly shocking and disappointing.

have been to Grazie's several times prior and this appears to have been an 'off night'. we did come in towards end of day, so maybe that contributed to it. the orzo (house pasta) was a bit soft possibly from sitting all day? 2 of us ordered the linguine di mare and it didn't appear there was effort made to split the 2 portions. ie 1 of us had 1 shrimp, the other had 3, 1 of us had 2 mussels, the other had 4, 1 of the plates had twice as much noodles as the other, etc...

We came in for my wife’s birthday party, I had made reservations for a party of 14.... no unexpected surprises or delays. Service is very attentive. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Only gripe is that we wished that it had a bar. My wife wanted a cocktail for dinner. Other than that.... nice little Italian place.

We were warned that the house minestrone was different and hardy - but it was more like beef stew. Pasta dish was so garlicky, I could not finish it. I have loved my food other visits so this might just have been my selection. Waitress and other staff were warm and friendly, I love the atmosphere, wine selection and experience here.

I was so disappointed! We had been there one time before, so I knew it was a super small place and somewhat loud. The food at that time was excellent, which is why we were excited to go back, BUT...

This time the food was terrible. My orzo was cold and stuck together. The asparagus looked like wisps of seaweed. Seriously, the asparagus was so over cooked it was like mush. The tortellini was cold only 2 cooks. Had she asked us how our meal was, I would have let her know. This meal was not worth the amount of money we spent.

So I guess it's hit or miss? It's too far for us to drive to "try again".

31-year old family owned operation, most employees have been there a long time. Veal Saltimbocca was extremely well done. Nice selection of half bottles, both red and white. Server very engaging, made the meal a great experience.

Bad STAY AWAY... Business expense and they closed it out to a higher amount on the credit card.
Came in twice this week and this is upscale casual where are you going to spend about $40-$60 per person. So they come and take my wine and meal order. Kid you not, 5 minutes later the glass of wine and my dinner is delivered. So I just said my goodness. I want to enjoy the wine before dinner. The reply was well yes we’ve been in business for 31 years and our cooks are fast. Reason to logic, with sit down dinner service, should not focus on pushing food out food fast just to flip tables quicker. I get it—it’s a small place but taking that few extra minutes to let the guests enjoy shows the restaurant cares. They don’t care at this place. My reply was well this is upscale casual.... I ordered a Chianti which I like to consume prior to digesting my Meal in this relaxed atmosphere. So she said well we can just remove your wine. Not even apologetic. They care less. They’re going to get a regular flow of guest coming in and make money and be busy, so these situations and bad service and concerns matter not. They said should we just take your glass of wine away we’re busy enough attitude. So the wow factor is out the window here. Both my visits were the same. The first time I sat at the bar and the food came within like 10 minutes with the server saying like you need to order this... the most expensive item. Only because I waited to overlook the menu being there the first time I was probably asked for five times if I was ready to order it but I stayed drinking my glass of wine before I ordered. I should’ve done that the second visit. This is not fast food service. It’s upscale casual people need to relax and unwind between courses. What got me, was the attitude we’ve been business for 31 years. Like that justifies miss treating people

Very cute small location, service was prompt, dining area was very close quarters and bathroom was a roomy one person area. The service was good the waiter didn’t introduce himself with his name however but was prompt to get us food and refills quickly. Food was very hot and good, we got the tortellini Gorgonzola which was amazing and big portions worth the 16$ price tag. Garlic cheese bread appetizer was filling and delicious, and hot as well. Dessert was the only disappointment a little bland, but having a “live” dessert menu instead of paper was a nice touch visually.

I have been coming here for many years now and have never ever had a bad meal! Tonight I had Filet Mignon and it was cooked to perfection, and was savory and delicious. The side vegetables were just right, not over-cooked, and the nice heaping size of pasta was incredible too. The hostess also accurately recommended a wine that perfectly complemented the entire meal, much to my surprise! And the dessert tray! Oh my... Go for the Turtle Cheesecake. It's worth every last bite as is everything else on the menu here!
