It's fun to eat at a restaurant literally situated on the casino floor. The service was also good and the food was flavorful. The prices are a big high but I was not disappointed in general. I had a spaghetti dish.

As always, the food and service were top notch. Our server, Ashley, recommended the caprese pizza special when we asked about having the pizza for dinner. It was fantastic, hope they have it again. Anton, the Manager was great also, he interacts with the guests to be certain everything is top shelf.

We went there for lunch and could not have been more disappointed............and it was all the service. I can not tell you about the food, because we only had the soup, which was ok. We also ordered a salad and a sandwich.........pretty easy stuff. We waited 15 minutes to get the soup. After we were done, it was 25 minutes... More

Hubby and I frequent the Grotto because of their awesome happy hour. The red house wine is very good and so is the food. Once in a while we have dinner in the dining area which is always good. The house salad is delicious and the service is always good.

Grotto has both single entrees and family style dining making it a great restaurant for both singles, couples, and large groups. We have found the pizza to be inconsistent, having owned my own restaurant, I have high expectations for pizza and I sometimes wonder if the dough is frozen or it is a problem with the area as certain places...

The Tomato Basil soup is the best that I have ever had. A MUST ORDER. The Caesar Salad is fair, but the house salad is excellent. Great bread. We both had eggplant parm---PERFECT. A bit noisy, but it is in the casino. We will definitely be back
