Everything we had was absolutely delicious. The cheeseburger pizza was genius. Genius! The staff was welcome and very friendly. Great place!

I absolutely love their deep dish vegetarian pizza! My family loves the little nuggets that they have. Well they have loved any of the menu items that they've tried. Always have great service. The place is always clean. Never have to wait to be seated.

My fellow Soldiers and I used to love coming into this place and enjoy apps and pizza with our drinks in the bar area...we took up the entire bar. The owner was very kind to us and we were thankful for the kindness...he always got our business. Pizza good, kind-of a hand toss style I think, not like Chicago deep... More

I love the food and atmosphere at R Grotto! I would highly recommend the nuggets of dough with seasoning and marinara sauce. So delicious!!

I was in Ottawa for a car show. I called them for a large deep dish vegetarian pizza. It was ready in 25 minutes. I picked it up and they gave me napkins, plates, forks, salt and pepper to go. It was absolutely the best vegetarian pizza I have ever had. Quick service.

We were travelling from Ohio to Arizona and staying in Ottawa overnight. We wanted a good place for pizza to eat during the NBA finals. This was perfect. Of course, it helped that Cleveland won! But the pizza was outstanding. Deep dish pan pizza, nothing better.

They have a full menu, but we are rather fond of their pizza. It is good, and you can also order "nuggets" (fried pizza dough, coated with garlic and parmesan cheese).

I meet my friends here for a beer & some great pizza. They have big private booths. There is a lot of variety on the menu and its all good & affordable. I've been there 6 or more times and they've always been good experiences
