A Rehoboth Classic

Pizza is a big deal here in Rehoboth and people take sides when it comes to favorites. My husband and I are in the Grotto Pizza camp. I have been eating at Grotto since it opened which I believe was back in the 60's. The pizza is thin crust and we usually end up getting pepperoni. I know… not... read more

Everyone claiming how good the pizza was I decided to try it. WHAT A MISTAKE!!!!! I guess people around there never had a real pizza. The sauce looked and tasted like it was ketchup out of a bottle. The "cheese" was not cheese, I don't know what it was but tasted like crap. The service stank and the place was... More

Over the 35 years we have been coming to Rehoboth Beach, we have become huge fans of the three Grotto Pizzas down near the Ocean in Rehoboth Beach. These restaurants have gotten better and better, as have all of their wonderful offerings from outstanding pizza, good onion soup, and excellent burgers to very find gelato. This chain is the only...

Grotto pizza is different than regular pizza-it's MUCH better! We were in Rehoboth Beach for four days and ate it every day! Wish there was one near me in NJ.

The pizza here was decent, although a bit small. Service was good as well. We had a table right near the boardwalk so we got to people watch and see the beach.

I had high hopes for my first Grotto Pizza experience. Everyone I talked to before going to Rehoboth for the first time raved about their pizza! However, I found it to be good, but nothing more. I've had a lot of pizza in my day, and I'd say that some of the local pizza joints where I live far surpass... More

This was a stop of convenience, while walking the boardwalk, hunger struck. We're not fans of the pizza at Grotto's, and an attitude which borders on heresy hereabouts. It's OK, but we prefer Mr. P's in Lewes of Taste of Italy in several locations. But if you are on the boards and just want a quick snack, go for it.

I MUST have Grotto's pizza every time I go to Rehoboth. In fact, I stayed in Fenwick and we drove to Rehoboth because I HAD TO HAVE MY GROTTO PIZZA. I enjoy the plain cheese pizza the best. Why mess with perfection?
