Graziella

"Au Restaurant Graziella, rue McGill, la cuisine inventive et raffinée de la chef propriétaire Graziella Battista est axée sur les origines italiennes de celle qui a tenu pendant plus de 10 ans les rennes de l’excellent restaurant Il Sole. Osso bucco, pavé de thon rouge saignant, risotto, pétoncles ou carpaccio de bœuf : le bonheur est résolument dans l’assiette."-Les Femmes chefs à Montréal, Tourisme Montreal, Sept. 2009
Treat is the right word to use when describing the Graziella experience. I get a little blasé from time to time about restaurants, but this one feels extra special. It’s a restaurant that merits that snazzy outfit, your best table manners, an extra-splurge on a fine bottle of wine. Graziella offers food designed for gourmets looking for something more Spartan, elegant and I’d even go so far as to say pretty without at all falling into the dreaded category of precious. No, Graziella’s food is certainly fancy, and yet you won’t leave her table hungry. Lesley Chesterman, Montreal Gazette, March 2012
