The Grotto serves some family style food, but it is not their entire menu. You can get individual meals here. Very good food and very good service.

We started in the bar area for Happy Hour (4-7). Our bartender, Billy was great, as usual. Had the arancini (rice balls), I had merlot, my wife had the sweet tea vodka. Went into the Dining Room and our server was Bill (not the bartender). My wife had the veal marsala with spinach, I had the osso bucco with saffron... More

We dine here several times a year when we visit Atlantic City. The food and prices are good and they always give crayons and paper to our little ones. Be sure to ask for Chris who just started and waited on us twice in two days!

The good at this Italian eatery was just ok. The Caesar salad was tasty. The grotto salad was loaded with tomatoes and hot peppers, but need more dressing. The chicken franchise was overcooked and bland. The mushroom risotto wad good but needed more flavor. The chocolate cake was good! The server was tired and aloof, but it was almost closing,... More

My friend and myself had dinner there last week. It is a nice, modern Italian place right in the center of the casino. The food was great. We had the minestrone soup, which was terrific. I had the lasagna, which was excellent, and my friend had a rigatoni dish that was also great. Their wine list was excellent. We had... More

My friend and I went to the Grotto for a few beers while at the Golden Nugget. The beers were served in a chilled glass and were fresh and tasty. The service was very good and we thought the price was reasonable for a casino and for the fact we were drinking imported draft beer.

Their Bolognese is probably one of their best dishes since they changed to the new menu. For the record I wish they would bring the old menu back. They spent months building up the new menu that was coming out earlier this year and when it did, we were highly disappointed. The previous menu had a much better selection for... More

Went for Happy Hour and the atmosphere and drinks were wonderful. The service left something to be desired. Someone in our party of 5 ordered a few appetizers, after waiting nearly 40 minutes it became apparent that the order was never put into the kitchen. We left there and went to Vic and Anthonys for a great Happy Hour

We stopped here for lunch last week. The server we had was pleasant but very slow. There was one other table there at the same time so they didn't have an issue of too many tables. We had a simple order and it was screwed up. My husband ordered a side salad with his panini and was served French fries... More
