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

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.
