We had an amazing dinner, with the crab and lobster lasagna for our entrée. Every bite was heaven. The waitress, Priscilla, took such great care of us! All the staff was wonderful! The bartender,...

Four adults and three teens had terrific dinner in this upscale restaurant. Shared bruscetta and antipasti appetizers followed by terrific meals of spaghetti bolonese, chicken parmigiana, fish, and pizza. Shared very good bottle of Valpolicella recommended by Priscilla. Finished with several shared desserts with coffee, tea and espresso. Highly recommended.

I was a little nervous about a last minute party of 20 looking for a business dinner. We left a message on the machine letting them know we were coming. Italian is their specialty. The resturant is located inside the St. Luis resort and the decor and atmosphere is 4 star! The manager was excellent and very attentive. She suggested... More

Grotto is inside a beautiful restaurant and it has great views of the pool area and ocean. We stopped there for early dinner. The calamari was very tasty. We also split the chicken and goat cheese pizza. It was very tasty, but probably would not order it again. but I will definitely get the strawberry cheesecake again! It was the... More

First time at this location. Our waiter, Stefan, was great! Great view, right by the pool! The pizza we had as a starter was delish. The pasta was prepared wonderfully.

The pasta very fresh, Our one son had the snapper was cooked perfect wonderful taste. Our other son had the shrimp with lump crab meat and pasta, the... More

Grotto is a true asset to Galveston Island and the San Luis Resort complex. Food was very good. Excellent selection of appetizers and drinks. Monday - Friday happy hour. Keep up the good work.

Wife and I ate here on a recent trip. We were very happy with the service here. The Manager was keenly interested in making our meal better. When my wife asked why we'd not seen clams on a menu anywhere along the TX coast, she knew that the gulf water was just too warm for clams to live. But, she... More
