Rarely do I give 5-star ratings, but Gratzzi gets it right all the way! Absolutely delicious Italian cuisine, starting with fresh, warm bread. Italian ambiance including even the music playing.

This was great. We went at 5pm and got the special, early dinning menu. Soup or salad,entre and dessert, only $15. Wow. $3.50 Beer and Wine. You can't go wrong. Service was very good.

Told us they wouldn't seat us outside because of reservations. Later found out it was because they were short staffed. The Parmesan is in the basic jars and tastes like it would at a regular pizza parlor. Nothing fancy. Then worst of all, I ended...More
