“Gross and Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We have been going to Grotto for years.We usually eat at the Grand Slam one but wanted to try this one.The pizza was cold and hardly had any cheese on it and was super thick like a loaf of bread. It took forever to get the food. The French fries were cold and soggy and the bottom of the barrel.Forget trying to get a refill on your drink. The ceiling in the back room is moldy and the carpet is beyond gross. They weren't even wiping off the tables. The bathroom was filithy. On the way out I looked in the kitchen the trash was over flowing on to the floor the counters were dirty I wish I took a picture of it and could post it. We left hoping no one got sick later.

“Great view from new upstairs on Rehoboth Ave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Newly remodeled Rehoboth Ave location. Great food! Family tradition! If you love it as much as we do they will partially bake a pizza for you to take home. We get 2. They only last us a week.

“The Flies made us fly...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We have been coming to Grotto for the past 16 years on the first day of our vacation week. This time we were really disappointed. First of all, our daughter who is a vegan asked for pizza with just sauce, veggies and No cheese. They brought her a cheese pizza! She was very specific about no dairy but the order was wrong and so she had to wait for another pizza to be made. The pizza at Grotto is usually very good - we like the think crust and they have lots of toppings to choose from, but this time we were disappointed. They pizza did not come out piping hot - the sauce was salty, and it just didn't meet the usual standard. We were also very grossed out by number of flies in the restaurant. Flies were all over the ceiling - hundreds of them - I was afraid they would drop into the pizza. We were swatting and eating - it was horrible. We couldn't wait to get out of there. We also got a Jr Pizza to go and it was terrible too. It looked like they took a squeeze bottle of sauce and made a circle because the sauce didn't cover the entire pizza. The crust was different too. All in all - a big disappointment. Maybe next time we'll try an order to go, or another restaurant location but this one, on Rehoboth Ave near the boardwalk is not one we'll go back to.

“Wonderful pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I have been told by many friends to eat at Grottos and my husband and I decided to order carry out on our last night of our honeymoon! I am so glad we did! The Greek salad, breadsticks, and mushroom and roasted red pepper pizza was amazing! Friendly people working there too!

“We love Grotto!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Kids and I have been coming here for a dozen years. We always enjoy the food. Today it tastes awesome. The BBQ boneless wings were fantastic. The pizza is our favorite! A must do while at Rehoboth Beach
