Not As Hyped As Everyone Says

Let me first say, I am picky about pizza. Grotto's is everywhere...so people must like it...me not so much. Lets just say...if people wanted to get it and I was outvoted...I would get it....but I am not rushing out for Grotto's. To me it was more like cheesy bread soaked in sauce. Cheese... read more

All I would expect of a basic pizza place. No real fancy, gourmet-type pizzas, just the basics. Felt service was a bit slow on a not-that-busy of a night; perhaps they had reduced the kitchen staff at the end of the season. Will go back again.

Excellent pizza and made fresh for your order. I am picky about my pizza and everything was perfect. The sauce was great and they fix the pizza exactly the way you want it. Enjoy!!!!

We stopped in for a quick lunch and had some fantastic sandwiches. I had a meatball sub and my husband had a chicken parm sub. Both were the small size but really filling - no skimping on portions! We actually went back later in the day with a bigger crowd of folks and had personal pizzas, cheese steak sandwiches and... More

They must put crack in their crust or something because I never miss an opportunity to get their pizza when I'm on the east coast.

I have been eating Grotto's pizza since I was 10 yrs old and there was only one place on Rehoboth avenue. Their pizza has a very unique taste and I love it! Its a must try place when you are in Rehoboth or Dewey beach. They also deliver which is very nice.
