From the time you walk in to the time you leave you feel welcome and well taken care of. The Italian food is incredible, fresh and authentic! Go hungry that's for sure and be sure to save room for dessert. The variety is so incredible they wheel the different pies, cakes, tiramisu, etc., to your table on five tall shelves.

My husband and two children (3 and 9) ate here on Saturday, 09/06/14. The service and food were excellent. The food and drinks are pricey, but the food is certainly tasty. This place is not all that fancy on the inside, but the service is impeccable. I would recommend The Grotto Ristorante for a special occasion because the service and... More

We always love the Steakhouse at the San Luis Resort, but this trip before a show we stopped at the hotel and decided to try the Grotto restaurant. So glad we did! One for the best meatballs EVER, had it for a appetizer. The chef even came out and gave us a few tips in making it for ourselves, not... More

The food was incredible. The service was incredible. With just a mention of an overcooked steak (which still tasted incredible) the wait staff surprised us with another steak cooked perfectly. The kids were amazed by the attention given to our table and the view of the San Luis pool only made it more enjoyable.

The Grotto is a rather expensive restaurant inside of the San Louis Resort on the seawall. Great view of the pool and H20 Bar. Marvelous food. Did I mention fresh made pasta? Mine was exceptionally good. A little pricey, but well worth the money in my book.

It was awesome. We even called back and ordered another pizza. We got just the simple pepperoni but it was delicious, even the kiddos enjoyed it.

Hubs and I went to Grotto last Saturday night, as we were staying at the San Luis. No reservations, but sat at the bar, without waiting. Food was very, very good. No complaints at all. Had a pizza and a fish dish. Both great. Drinks very good as well. But it was the service that I want to comment on-... More

Fantastic restaurant, food, service, atmosphere. They were very accommodating - allowed our children to share a child's meal. Would absolutely return. Trendy, upscale atmosphere - amazing food. We had our kids (family vacation), but great for couples too.
