Our party of four ate at the Italian Grotto on March 3, 2014, after being recommended by a friend. Since it was a Monday night and early and we'd been strolling Old Town, we just dropped in without a reservation. We were seated promptly inside but close to the outdoor seating, so still had a good view for people watching. The restaurant was about half full, with people at the bar enjoying happy hour. Our waiter was friendly and gave good recommendations for food and wine. We had starters and mains, including salads and pasta and some wine by the the glass. The meal was average in quality and portions were on the large side. After reading some of the recent low TripAdvisor ratings, I'd say we were lucky the night of our visit. We had nothing to complain about except the food wasn't outstanding. Would we return if we found ourselves in Old Town again? Maybe, but there are so many other good and exceptional places to eat I'm not sure we would.
