Grotto Pizza is simply an important part of the Rehoboth Beach experience. I am convinced that it tastes best when eaten on the beach with a healkthy dose of sand. It's good..very good, but so are many of the others altho grotto has the reputation.

This pizza was amazing. Everything tasted fresh. Wait staff friendly. The location we went to was right on the boardwalk overlooking the ocean. Fresh salads, fresh ingredients in the food, very tasty and priced right. Kid friendly.

This is a nice family restaurant to have pizza, burgers, and dessert. The service is good and the food does not take long to come. It has various locations. We tried the one on the boardwalk and the one on Rehoboth avenue and we were happy with both. I would definitely come here again.

Well, not really that late. Decided to order carry out from the South Boardwalk location. A little pricey, but your at the beach! Pizza was great! Unfortunately, none left for breakfast!

We could not believe the number of Grotto Pizza's we saw when we were in the Rehoboth beach area. Standing on the boardwalk, we could see three from one spot. We figured we try it out for a quick lunch one day. The pizza is identical in taste to frozen pizzas. My wife made the comment that it tasted like... More

We had little time before our ferry, so we thought that this would be quick and easy. We ate at the Grotto that was not on the main drag, so I may have picked the wrong one to review. Either way, for a grilled cheese and plain pizza, it took over 30 minutes. The pizza was bland. This is not... More

This review is for the Grottos on coastal highway rehoboth , delaware near ?9west towards georgetown. Our 4th season there with baseball team. Nice area in building for having approx 30-35 people for pizza and drinks. Pizza great. Service has been great too over past two years. The boys like the play room with games. Very little wait for drinks... More

I grew up with Grotto and went back this month (we go back every summer). Hands down, the absolute best pizza out there. We always have leftovers for later and bring the par baked back home with us out of state! LOVE LOVE LOVE this pizza!
