We would like to introduce ourselves.
We are Kevin and Maria Downey, two owners who are passionate about conveying our vision for an authentic Italian experience.
The first Grazie Ristorante was located in a beautiful 2-story building built in the early 1900’s. Overlooking Commencement Bay in Tacoma, it featured spectacular views and was an instant hit.
Grazie at Southcenter opened in mid-1988, and in 1995 together with Maria Downey, the Canyon Park location in Bothell was opened. In 1997, we sold the Tacoma location.
It has been a fantastic journey, filled with joy and tears, hard work and happiness. Most of all, it has been a labor of love to serve tens of thousands of Grazie Ristorante’s loyal customers through the years.
We look forward to serving you soon!
Grazie Ristorante also enjoys being part of the community we serve:
- Member of the Washington Restaurant Association.
- Charity dinners are hosted each year in which 100% of the proceeds go to the selected charity.
- Dinner certificates are occasionally donated for schools, golf tournaments, United Way, and other charities.
