Exceptional Italian Restaurant in St. Petersburg, FL
It was late afternoon enter Gratzzi's Italian Grill.
The dark interior was in sharp contrast to the sun setting over the building. When my eyes adjusted, the first feeling I had was that I was here with family. You know like in The Sopranos. Intimate. Special. Family.
The atmosphere inside Gratzzi’s is a great combination of old St. Petersburg and Old World Italian. Tightly spaced tables, brick walls, with countless bottles of wine hung on them as decorations. In the far corner you can see the kitchen staff working at high speed. At a table nearby, someone is enjoying a show as Dominique, creates the flaming signature dish “Bada Bing”
What to wear
While it is common to see flip-flops and three-piece-suits at the same restaurant in St. Petersburg, FL, you would feel most comfortable skipping the flips, and maintaining a dress-casual attire.
The service in Gratzzi’s was nothing less than outstanding. The waiters and waitresses were practically invisible. Their recommendations were outstanding and each course arrived perfectly on time.
For dinner, I had the Lasagna with a meatball on top. Our waiter said it’s just like his mother used to make. My wife had best shrimp alfredo I’ve ever tasted. My lasagna was enough to feed three people, and its bold flavor made every bite a joy and paired perfectly with their red house wine.
Of all the Italian restaurants near St Pete Beach, Gratzzi is one of the best!
