Ugh! Words can not describe how delicious this place is. I was SO surprised by the quality of the food. I did not expect the food to be so spectacular. I recommend this restaurant to everyone! If you're ever in old town, eat here!!!!

The wait staff and bartender were very nice and helpful. I ordered the meatballs for my app and the meatballs and sauce were soo flavorful. My friend got the deep fried peppers and pickles and the breading was perfectly crispy and the sauce had great flavor. I ordered the Deep Dish Chicago Hawaiian pizza and it was amazing. The crust was cooked perfect and the flavors all mixed very well together. I cant wait to go back for more.

Brought family from the Portland area for a night that would showcase some of the charm that Sac has to offer. Parking was easy to find right in front of the restaurant despite being 8pm on a Friday nite and that luck set the stage for the rest of our time at Graciano's! I was told days earlier that I wouldn't need a reservation even though they had steady business the entire time we were there and sure enough, our hostess showed us right to the table I had picked out some nights before. The delta breeze was a little cool for me or we could have sat out on the gorgeous patio under the moon and stars...but I'll save that for another visit. The pickles and peppers was crisp and the breading was delicious, followed by a hearty serving of meatballs and garlic bread. I could've had more bread, (the meatball app came with a slice almost as big as all the bread we got with the order, yet the flavor more than made up for the short supply. We ordered 2 large deep dish pies, 1 half double pepperoni and half their signature combo and 1 half shrimp and 1 half bacon both with white sauce. The sauce was rich and tasty on both and even the teenager contingent of our group was full with a togo box for the remnants! We also had fun identifying the "Gangster" whose profile graced the wall near our table and loved the speakeasy vibe and decor. Looking forward a return meal!

Does anyone NOT love pizza? This is the decadent deep dish type with a crust that is worth eating, but the menu also includes the flat bread version, some salads, and other Italian entrees for those feeling like something lite. Amazing historic setting with unique character, nice and cool on a hot day. This is actually the original underground level of Old Sacramento. The black mirrored bar reminds me of "The Shining" so you can imagine it all works for a Chicago Speakeasy theme. The bar area has a couple of TV's and a juke box and the night I visited there was a really good energy going on. One of the best courtyard patios in town. Worth a few extra minutes for the deep dish. Would be a nice date-night of family restaurant choice for a visit to Old Sac.

So excited for the soft opening tonight! Great drinks and deep dish pizza so far! We split the Caesar salad and got the Chicken Pesto a Deep dish. The salad was nicely dressed with the perfect amount of dressing. The lettuce was fresh and the pieces were fork sized. I hate when places drown salads or serve gigantic slabs of lettuce forcing you to use a knife . This salad was just right and the croutons seemed housemade. The pizza was so good I ate my left overs as soon as I got home! The crust was nice and crispy with no soggy spots. The bar area was nice with two Tvs playing sports. It was kind of loud but the vibe is comfortable. Next time I'll try the patio and catch some delta breeze!
