Meet the owner

When Joe Brancatella was growing up, he had lots of friends from different cultures. “I’m from a big Italian family that loves to eat and at my friends' houses, I discovered there's a whole world of food from different cultures out there,” Joe recalls. His culinary interest just grew and, at 19, he enrolled in the Chef’s Apprentice program at Humber College. To make extra cash, he took a job as a limousine driver on the side.

One night, after Joe mentioned to a passenger that he was training to be a chef, the man introduced him to a friend, Franco Prevedello. Franco was the owner of Toronto's "it" restaurant at the time, Pronto, and he offered Joe a job. “I had the great privilege of working with two great chefs,” says Joe, referring to Raffaele Ferrari and Arpi Magyar. As luck would have it, Joe would also get the chance to work with a young Mark McEwan, who bought Pronto before opening North 44 nearby.

I thought this place was great. You should go in...

I thought this place was great. You should go in with the expectation that you will have to wait a little bit of time because the place is always full. I would say thats a indication of its food, and would agree with that statement. Lots of great tasting options, had the basil chicken pasta dish and my date had the sundried tomato pizza. So as long as you have an extra 15mins in your night, its a great spot for decently priced italian food

Good food at best - good service if you’re lucky...

Good food at best - good service if you’re lucky and very patient – staff and customers could be very pretentious… Very young crowd of “wanna be’s… “Typical clientele of Yonge & Eglinton… Owner could be very obnoxious and like to flirt with customers – even when they know it’s your wife… so guys, be aware !!! No reservation and always packed !!!

all our nonno's drank vino in a "water" glass!!

Where else can you go to feel so incredibly comfortable, that the customers just break out into song, good old fashioned food,drink and entertainment. The staff is outstanding always smiling and curtious. The food, and we've tried many if not all dishes, is excellent. Now there's a new location in Vaughan, the only place in the area where people are actually made to feel really good inside and out. What a great night out, cant wait to enjoy my lunches there aswell. GRAZIE! TO GRAZIE RISTORANTE for coming to Vaughan

The food was ok, nothing to great, the restaurant was very crowded but the wait wasn't to bad, I would suggest anyone who enjoys wine, to either avoid this place or bring your own glass, as they think drinking wine out of a water glass is "the way Italians are supposed to". the lack of a good glass of wine with the meal really disappoints, and shows that they are more concerned with appearance that quality.

The food was Good but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Wine with a meal, This is another one of those restaurants that thinks its cool to drink wine out of a water glass, if you know anything about wine stay away. I think they try to hard to be "authenic" Italian.

We had a very good experience and appreciated that an effort was made to seat us in a slightly quieter location in the restaurant because of hearing issues. The food was very good. two of us also used the washroom and it was well kept.

The new renovation looks really great. The noise level was so high, I could barely hear the person sitting across the table from me. I've been to Grazie many times and don't remember it every being so unbearably loud, could it be due to the new design?

Our party of 4 was consisted of 2 adults and 2 small children. Arrived at the restaurant early at 8:15, it was very crowded with lots of people waiting for a table. We understand there will be a wait. Around 8:45, many people left and saw many tables wiped, setup and available. We asked several times and was told we were next. However, parties of 2 came in with no reservations got seated almost immediately at empty tables that can fit 4 . Finally at 9pm I asked when it was our turn and was told there are many empty tables, pick whichever one I wanted! They should have sat us earlier then! We were too tired and frustrated with 2 hungry kids to complain so we just sat down and ordered. The only plus was our server was very attentive , understood our kids were hungry and tired and served us quickly. The reservation system is useless and we felt we were treated unfairly. We will not be back.

The quality of the food is as consistent as always. Excellent breadth of options and exceptional caliber. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back. The owner is friendly and is in the trenches, a very passionate and down to earth owner who prides himself on a positive experience to the diner. Service was impeccable as our extremely knowledgeable and friendly waiter, Jason, far exceeded our service expectations.

Great vegetarian dishes around Yonge and Eglinton

Great vegetarian dishes around Yonge and Eglinton

Try the bruschetta pizza for an appetizer and then one of their multiple pasta entrees with vegetarian options. Substituting nuts or tomatoes for meatballs in a tomato sauce never fails, while the variety of mushrooms will add satisfying texture and earthy flavour.
