I'm not gonna say it's the best Italian food I've had had but the grotto salad and bread are the best! Stick with that and a glass of wine and you are money. Pretty good - pizza is ok entrees ok. Like it!

You can't go wrong with some fresh Italian food at the Grotto - every time I stay at the Golden Nugget, I'm sure to have at least one meal here!

We had our dinner there and of course, it's my favorite downtown place. I used to go there for lunch when I lived in Vegas and it's just as good as I remembered.

after a very long day at the Grand Canyon we arrived back in town after 8 pm... we quickly got ready for an evening out. A search though a recent TA forum tipped us off to Grotto and I'm so glad we went with the suggestions from other travelers. We arrived about 10:15 (kitchen closes at 10:30) but were seated... More

We were looking for a nice, quiet place for a late night bite Downtown seeing as Fremont Street was filled with the regular mix of crazy & drunk people, so we and ended up walking through the Golden Nugget casino. I had previously eaten at Vic & Anthony's steak restaurant (excellent but over-priced in my opinion) and we looking for... More

The chicken parmesan was satisfying, but was a little dry and not as delicious as it could have been. The most irritating thing was being given a sales pitch about their corporate club at the conclusion of our meal. It didn't go over well, and made us feel like they were more interested in our money than giving us a... More

We enjoyed our dinner here at the Grotto up until the end. Great view of the Golden Nugget aquarium, but what the waiter did at the end of our meal left a bad taste in our mouth. Trying to sell us a 25 dollar loyalty package which encompasses all the restaurant chains in their holdings. Rude! Would not return due... More

My husband and I had a late dinner here our first night at the Golden Nugget. We sat at the bar and our server was very good. Very knowledgeable about the beer we ordered and gave a great dinner suggestion. The pasta he recommended - the diablo rigatoni - was indeed, very good. My only complaint is that it was... More

Returned to the Grotto and had appetizers and a salad before attending the theatre. Tony, our waiter, was outstanding! The calamari was fresh, tender, juicy - - just right! The salad was perfection. Cant wait to return.
