Grazie Restaurant Review

: Not much bigger than a bread box, this warm and lively pizzeria emulates the welcoming coziness of an Italian trattoria. Sponged walls hung with colorful art cast a golden glow over a room crowded with tables, chairs and noisy people. Locals show up in jeans and shorts for a casual good time; they talk, they laugh, they drink Italian wines and they keep the decibel level just slightly below that of a rock concert. Meanwhile, the pizzaiolo in residence works quickly and fluidly, turning out beautiful thin-crusted pies, puffed up and bubbly from the wood-burning oven. Toppings include prosciutto, Gorgonzola, arugula and artichokes --- the kind of gourmet stuff you won't find at Domino's. We also recommend the sturdy, plate-size calzones, with mild, melting cheeses. Although the menu doesn't offer full-blown Italian entrées, crostini, salads and a limited selection of appetizers and desserts seem to be enough to keep everyone happy.
