Best Italian in Brooklyn – The best eggplant in Brookyln hands down. The sauces are very yummy. They have a great wine selection and bar. The staff is so friendly, and I cannot say enough about the owner.
Editorial Review – With outdoor dining and brick oven pizza, this restaurant serves up authentic Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere.
I am very hard to please when it comes to Italian cuisine... – So the review below(designated as First visit to graziella's) was my first time going there. I have to say my second time wasn't as great (exceptionally loud, and not once did our waitress ask if I wanted my water refilled or asked how our meal was--and the restaurant was LESS THAN HALF FULL!)
1ST TRIP: Having grown up in a home where everything was homemade, I'm hard to please, however Graziella's was more than wonderful! We walked in the door and were greeted and seated immediately. Their pizza was a little thin for my liking, (had to fold it in half to pick it up and eat it otherwise it'd flop, and the sauce could've used a little salt (and I'm not big on salt!) however we had the arugula and parmesan pizza and I adored how fresh and healthy it was-- the thick shavings of parmesan made it all worth while, too. The wine, per glass is a decent price ($5-$8). Near the end of the meal (we split a large pizza $20).. that's 10 slices.. we had one piece sitting on our tray; the owner's son came over and said he didn't want to see it go to waste, so he cut it in half and made us eat! hahahah--VERY nice guy. We were sort of full, but I had my mind set on the tirmisu which they make fresh everyday. and for $5 my friend and I each got a piece--the pieces were so huge we could've shared one!! Definitely worth it though--it was the lightest smoothest best tiramisu I've had outside of a family gathering. The whole restaurant was a little loud and seating was a LITTLE close for my liking, but service was attentive, which more than made up for it. I accidentally dropped my fork and one of the waiter's came rushing over and politely gave me a new one, plus they give you the petite mints with your bill. I'll definitely be back
3RD Trip: Had some really wonderful shrimp bisque and pasta with artichokes. Light yet filling, a lovely waitress, and the best tiramisu, as I've said before. The owner ALWAYS ALWAYS thanks us for coming!!
Best Pizza in the City – Well I love good pizza and after checking out all the spots in Manhattan and Brooklyn, this place is wonderful thin crust pizza. Their pastas and appetizers are alright but you should spend on the pizza. Good price, cute ambiance!
Delicious pizza-good wine, reasonable prices – A friend and I went to Graziellas on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant was about 1/3 full. We shared a cold antipasto-more than enough for 2 and very tasty. Along with the appetizer we were brought a basket of assorted breads that were crispy and fresh. On the table you will also find individual bottles of fine imported olive oil which we put on the bread-fantastic! I ordered a thin-crust individual meat pizza which was big enough for two and my companion ordered pasta with pesto. Both orders were generously portioned and scrumptious. We shared a bottle of very good chianti(about $20). Service was very good and the atmosphere was convivial but not loud.
I can't wait to return.
