The Grotto is a wondeful addition to the San Luis Resort. Our waitress Sylvia was excellent. Don't fill up on the huge basket of bread they give you prior to your meal. 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

Our party of 11 sat down for dinner at ~ 8 p.m. and didn't get our food until after 9:15 p.m., even though the restaurant was far from full. Our $14 martini glasses were served 3/4 full, we asked for more bread no less than 5 times, from 2 waiters and the hostess, and finally received 5 more pieces 1/2... More

I brought my wife to the grotto for her birthday, without having made reservations. It was a very busy, packed Saturday, but Jessi the host did everything she could to get us a comfortable table. She placed a card with a few signatures on it that said happy birthday and despite her being extremely busy, she managed to get a... More

My husband had the spaghetti, and said it was the best ever. I tasted it and would have to agree. My shrimp was good, but a little bland. The atmosphere was delightful, and the staff was great. It is expensive, so be prepared. We overall had a very good experience here, and the manager goes out of his way to... More

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!
