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

It was so loud we couldn't hear each other speak, being in the middle of the casino. I sampled the food of everyone at the table and all was very good except for my chopped salad. The chicken was dry and overcooked. I ordered it with no bacon and it seemed to have nothing else in it but chopped egg... More

We decided to order a take out dinner from Grotto on Sunday evening. The hostess was very friendly and advised that we should place our order at the bar. The bar was full, but the bartender was not very attentive. As I was waiting, the couple next to me wished me luck that the bartender would acknowledge me without having... More

The prices are very low, but do not get fooled. This place goes you more than what you pay for. The staff is well trained and offers very professional service and know its menu. They gave us all the attention we could have asked for. My wife had a pizza and we would definitely recommend it to anyone. I had... More

Let me start by saying I ate here at the end of last year. At that time, the food was decent, as was the service. Not having a bad first experience, our party of five decided to eat there again. We will never be back. When our appetizers arrived, my daughter's was not made the way she had asked. The... More

Went to the Grotto at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City with 3 other couples. Good service and very good food. However, the lasagna entree ($18) was tiny. It was probably 4" square and very thin at 1/2 ". It could not have weighed 4 oz. When the manager was told, she apologized, saying that was the corporate specification. She... More

Excellent Italian food at reasonable prices! Our party of 4 started with the Italian salad from the family style menu. It was delicious (cheese, pickled peppers, olives, mixed greens) and huge, as we could not finish it. Our entrees, from the regular menu, were also large (no one finished their meals) and very good. We tried rigatoni with meat sauce,... More
