I had my 40th birthday party at the Blue Grotto last weekend and it was perfect!! The staff took great care of us from the moment we walked in until the last person left. The food was amazing and the service was great! The margarita pizza and the Diavlo pizza were fantastic!! They had us set up in the upstairs... More

Stopped be early evening for a drinks, antipasti and salads. All very good and tasty. Service attentive and friendly. Watch when you say "booth" as a seating preference, however, as you may get stuck in the back of the house near busy waitstaff and cooking supplies.

This was my first meal in Kansas City after a day on the road. We ordered 3 different pizzas. The pizza is cooked in fire ovens. The Margherita pizza was delicious. We also had the Salsiccia which is sausage, tomato, peperonata, oregano, mozzarella and our third pizza was prosciutto, figs, and chèvre. It was delicious. Service was very good.

This is a good place to eat in the Brookside area of Kansas City. They have a nice outdoor area for times when the weather is good. A great place to hang out with friends and neighbors. Good pizzas, good bar, good happy hour. The only down side was the service was a little slow.

The food was excellent. Service was not so good. Not a busy part of the day, so it was a little discouraging from that standpoint. But the food was great.

If the weather is cooperating, you really should sit outside near a fire pit in one of the very cozy booth area. They are comfortable & if you're lucky you can get a private spot. The Ozark Pizza is INCREDIBLE!!

Great outdoor patio!! This is a fun, neighborhood spot with really good pizza and service. I saw a couple "ladies night out" groups, plus families and couples.

Looking for good artisan wood fired pizza this is the place. Has amazing cocktails and beer as well. We also had a cheese plate and a couple of appetizers, Ahi Tuna and Bruschetta. All were amazing. Very happy with this place, service was great as well. We didn't realize they didn't open till 3pm, and came there 245, but they... More

My wife and I had heard about Blue Grotto but had never been. Quite frankly, the reviews online are rather mixed, which made us skeptical. We stopped for lunch on a Sat. The food was amazing. We had a house salad with this lemon vinaigrette and the meatball appetizer and both were delicious. Then we had the lamb pizza and... More
