Every pasta sauce and pizza is prepared at the time it is ordered at Mamma Grazzi's Kitchen in the Byward Market. Old World Italian Cuisine dominates the menu, with fresh, exotic pizzas as another popular choice. Dining at Mamma Grazzi's is a true Italian experience, right down to the wine served by the glass in tumblers.
Wooden tables with glass wine tumblers set the mood in this old world style restaurant. Mamma Grazzi's Kitchen has been around since the 1990s and has built up a solid reputation and clientele with its great food at affordable prices. The stone heritage building built in 1827 is a perfect setting for traditional Italian food dished out by friendly servers. The restaurant is divided into three dining rooms and can accommodate about 80 diners. Each dining room can be closed off for private parties or business functions and there is a lovely patio for warm weather dining.
Temptation, Italian Style
A true Italian chef orchestrates mamma Grazzi's menu; it features chicken and veal dishes, as well as fresh pasta and pizza. Fresh salads with Italian cheeses and dressings, bruschetta, calamari and salmon dishes, as well zuppa (soup) are available to start the meal off right. For the next course, choose from the extensive pizza selection for an exotic blend of vegetables, tomato sauces, cheeses and meats or go for a hearty chicken or veal dish. Of course pasta is always a great choice, especially when the pasta and sauces are fresh and authentic. Traditional dessert choices like tiramisu round off the meal.
Patience is always rewarded: Especially when it's rewarded with great Italian food. Evenings can be very busy at Mamma Grazzi's Kitchen and line-ups are common. Be patient and you won't be sorry you waited. There are no reservations for dinner.
