On a trip to Freemont St. we were looking for some good dining options without having to leave the area. We did not have reservations, so needed someplace that we could walk in on a Saturday night. We chose Grotto and were not dissapointed. The wood fired pizza looked good, we went with the Veal Parm and enjoyed it with some red wine. Everyone at our table enjoyed the meal and it was overall a good experience. There may be more upscale Italian in Vegas but if you are headed to Freemont St. for a night, check this place out.

Best Italian food in downtown Vegas. The Grotto offers wide range of food and prices on its menu. We had timely and expert service.

Great restaurant, in a great setting. Feels authentically Italian.
Service was really good, one starter arrived late, before we could say a word the manager apologised & took it off the bill.
Food is lovely & the puddings of you have enough room are amazing!!

Wow!! My husband and I had dinner here and boy were we impressed!! We wanted to see the end of a football game and this looked to be a pretty comfy pick. We sat near the bar which is a self-seating area, but with a full menu and great view of the TV.

He ordered the chicken piccata and I had the Pollo Francese -- both were amazing!! I mean beyond delicious . . . every bite I took was wonderful and I'm not typically big on Italian food, but I loved my dinner here!! Paired up with a glass of Pinot and I was a happy camper.

Service was perfect, our server was friendly, helpful with suggestions and very timely.

Great place . . . . try the pizza too, the table next to us ordered pizzas and were mmmm-ing with every bite as well!

We didn't find a restaurant we liked better in old town. We kept wanting to explore outside our hotel but found this place was our favorite on Freemont. Overall we paid $70 for 2 dinners, an appetizer, and drinks. Not too bad for Vegas pricing.
