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

I have been to Grotto in the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City numerous times and each time the dinner and service has been excellent. I would recommend the Ziti with meatballs in meat sauce(meatballs are fabulous) and chicken francaise although everything there has been very good. They do have some family size offerings which are great for the salad and... More

This was my second time at Grotto AC and the food and service is always great. They have something for everyone and don't over or under season their food. If you can save room for dessert do try, the cart they pull up to your table is hard to resist.

Stopping by the Golden Nugget, we craved Italian for lunch. Grotto was the perfect choice! Tasty Bolognese and Tomato basil soup! The only downside was one server working the entire floor, so when a few other patrons arrived, he was stretched too thin to attend to us in a timely manner. Assuming the service is better during prime time hours,... More

Food was delicious and I actually enjoyed my mango martini. The bread was soft the next day! I had the spicy penne with grilled chicken. Yummy despite peas having to be shelled out (I hate peas). Calamari was great and the waiter was nice.
