The Grato has always been a favorite for my husband and myself for Ambiance, food and service. The last couple of times we have dined there the food has consistently gone downhill. The "My friend's Orichette" used to be a substantial pasta dish with large chuncks of sausage and chicken. The portion was very small with ground sausage and what... More

Was seated in a semi private area that was very nice. Buchetta was stale and lacked flavor and the ricotta cheese was grainy and not very good. Tried the calamari, over fried and served with a bland red sauce. Wedge salad was decent but nothing special. The main course, orecchiette was very bland and the chicken tasted processed. Had diner... More

We found Grato by chance while driving around. The restaurant is very well managed and the staff is friendly. They have a broad selection of Italian dishes (but do not have bruschetta nor a wood oven ..) and also wines (which are expensive). Unfortunately our malbec wine glass was bouchoné. The house bread served upon arrival could have been warm.... More

I have been there over a business dinner with colleagues. Beautiful ambiance, great service. Loved the "verde" cocktail and the wine list. Great menu and gorgeous plates. Try it

Both, very attentive and friendly and helpful with the menu. Had the manager come around and introduce herself and made sure everything was ok. AMBIENCE: Great place to sit at the bar and... More

Ate here with a group of friends. Shared the meatball appetizer and they were outstanding. The pizzas are too big for one and are very fresh The pasta is homemade and excellent. The staff was very attentive.

My husband and I wanted to try a restaurant we had never been to and ended up at Grato. The ambiance and decor was very inviting. The wait staff was very good, although with so many coming to the table it was a little confusing on who is actually your server, not a big deal for us. We had the... More

Great atmosphere and service, but my wife is a foodie and she was not impressed. Prices didn't match the quality in my opinion.

My family chose Grato for special special occasions as the food, service and ambience is top notch and casually elegant. First course starters and entrees are consistently well prepared. And waitstaff are trained, attentive and know their menus. Last night, celebrating my daughter's graduation was no different. "My friend orrichetto", "ricotta ravioli" - all pastas are freshly made daily. Delicious.... More
