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

We love the Grotto! We normally sit in the bar area... we love all the bartenders - especially Billy and Jon. They are fantastic!!!! Because of them, we come back here weekly. The Meatzza is amazing as well as their happy hour drink specials. They even have happy hour on Saturday!

Grotto really is as good as it gets to authentic Italian Cuisine. My husband and I order something new from the menu every time we go. Pizza lovers, this is some of the best pizza Atlantic City has to offer. We love the staff at Grotto, the drinks (especially half off wine bottles on Sundays) and the overall atmosphere. This...

Had dinner last weekend at Grotto & the food and the service were excellent. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I had the lasagna & my husband had a Caesar salad & chicken parmigiana & we were both very happy with the flavor & portion of our dinner. Our server Scott was friendly & attentive.

Our waiter was prompt and helpful with suggestions. We had white pizza, beggar's purse pasta, and ravioli and all dishes were very much enjoyed. Although we were full, we ordered the strawberry shortcake to share and it was delicious. Overall, the meal was a bit pricey but very tasty.

We ordered a thin crust pizza here and it was good. Too bad I didn't notice the place sooner. A little price but if you only get their little pizza pie it won't.
