Graziella’s open kitchen plan lets diners watch chef-owner Graziella Battista and her staff prepare modern Italian dishes served in understated yet beautiful presentations, like little works of art. Blonde wood and soft, creamy tones create a calming backdrop, and the high ceilings and votive candles on the tables give it a spa-like atmosphere. A competent, friendly staff provides the highest level of service. Everything on the menu is outstanding, but if we could recommend only one thing, it would be the fall-off-the-bone osso buco. On any given night, there are are also a variety of homemade pasta dishes—like capon-filled tortelli with speck and a buttery sauce infused with sage. Reservations are recommended.
