  • "Grotto was recommended to us by a Las Vegas "Local" last August and are we glad we went! So good, we went back again this summer on our annual trip to Las Vegas. We were a group of 8 adults (foodies) and everyone absolutely loved their dinner. The wine list is impressive, the food is fantastic and very reasonable priced. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "My husband, 2 teenagers, and I dined there on a recent trip to Vegas. 3 of us had spaghetti and meatballs and my son had pizza. Loved, loved, loved the meatballs!! And the bread was good too! We were all very satisfied when we left. Little pricey, but not to bad."

  • "My wife and I go to Grotto about once every couple of months. On this visit we had a table next to the kitchen. Service, as always for us, was very good. Every need was taken care of. I personally think the Lobster Bisque is the best in Las Vegas. (minus the red pepper flakes). I had the Filet for the first time and it was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. My wife has food allergies so they accommodated her request to alter one of their dishes. She very much enjoyed it. Though it can get a little noisy when hotel guests walk by the Grotto is very quaint and can be romantic. I recommend this place to all my friends and co-workers."

  • "We have dined several times at grotto when we go to downtown Vegas. It is not exotic but the food is always tasty, reliable and very flavorful. Service is friendly and attentive and there is a casual fun atmosphere. Really enjoy the bruschetta and calamari appetizers. All the pasta dishes we have tried are very flavorful."

  • "My girlfriend and I went to Vegas for the July 4th weekend. Stayed at the Golden Nugget (which was a great choice). Lots of food options down on Freemont St, but it was nice not having to leave the hotel for a great dinner. The Grotto was a great dining experience. Our waitress was attentive, but not over the top. Great personality and service. Food was fantastic. I am Italian and am very picky when it comes to good sauces, pasta and meatballs. All were very, very good. Short wine list, but good choices."

  • "Appetizers were decent portion size. Dinner portions were very small, I ordered the Pollo Romano and got two very small pieces of chicken on a bed of spinach and artichoke with a small side of penne'. The chicken size didn't even meet the size of a full breast. I didn't expect family style, but for $19.00 I didm't expect to leave the table hungry. The table size for four people was very small and we constantly had to move dishes around to make things work. If you just wanted wine and appetizers for lunch this may be the place for you. We are locals and this was our first time here. We came to celebrate my birthday and didn't even have it acknowledged, my wife noted that it was my birthday when she made the reservation."

  • "Good Italian food, friendly waiter and nice atmosphere. Sat at a table next to the Golden Nugget pool and shark tank. Enjoyed the evening dining."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "This is a good restaurant with good food in possibly the best hotel in the sleazy Fremont Experience area of downtown Las Vegas. Seemed a bit pricey (especially the wine) and the service was formulaic."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Food was great! Chicken parm is one of the best ones I've had'"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I celebrated my bday with a dinner at Grotto's. It came highly recommended, and it lived up to the hype. Very quick service, and our waiter was very knowledgable. I had the Veal Kickerillo (Awesome). Afterwards our waiter surprised us with a cheesecake (the best ever). The entire staff was very nice and responsive, the manager even stopped by to chat a couple of times. All in all excellent decision to eat here."

  • "We dined at Grotto for a late supper (appreciate the late hours) and breakfast on Mother's Day. We (party of 5 adults) had reservations for both meals and were seated promptly. The menu had many good choices for both meals. We would have loved to try the luscious looking desserts after dinner, but alas, we had enjoyed the main courses so much and there was no room to spare! The breakfast potatoes and sausage were not warm enough on one plate, but there were no other issues and we didn't complain. Oh yes, there was one--no cappuccino or expresso!! We were also disappointed that breakfast stopped being served at 10:30, especially on weekends. Good bar specialties, good menu selections, we will dine here again."

  • "We looked up Grotto for an Italian dining evening. The food was outstanding and with reservations we walked right in. Thanks!"

  • "with so many dining choices in Las Vegas, I'd pass on this one"
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "We have dined here twice and both times the food was fabulous! The cheesecake is to die for! Only downfall is it can get loud in there but it is mainly from tables that are oblivious to others around them and are carrying on like they are at someone's home However, that will not stop me from going back whenever I am in Vegas!"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Food was good, but not a top 10. Bolognese sauce was a bit sweet. Seared mozzarella is very good, so give that a try. Ambiance is so, so since you are in the middle of the casino with walking aisles around the restautrant, so not a cozy spot. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Because of the location of the restaurant there is a lot of activity very high energy"
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Went to dinner at Grottos on a Thursday evening with my husband and kids (teens). Everyone had a great time. The decor is beautiful. We had a nice view of the shark tank from our table. Our service was good. I had the sea bass and it was delicious! My kids had the lobster bisque and they both loved it. my husband had the ravilo a la vodka. it was a little spicy but he really liked it. they serve breah bread with an oil dipping sauce. My mixed dring was not really good but otherwise is was a great night. Would definitely recommend."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Food was really good tho the portions were quite small and the price was to high for the portion we received. We went to Gordon Ramsey Pub and Grill and got twice the portions for the same price. This is a great place if you want a quiet romantic dinner with your wife/husband. It has a view of a really cool shark tank on the south end. The service was outstanding and we were treated like VIP's. Great overall experience just need to give you more for the price."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "It took over ten minutes for the waiter to come to our table. He made a mistake with our order. My wife requested soap it never came. We had to remind him. He would disappear for long periods of time and only checked on us once during our meal. Service in the past has been excellent."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Took my mother in law who is 100% Italian and I was nervousness because she is so picky. She said it was the best chicken Marsala she's ever had in a restaurant. And that's a statement coming from her. Tiramisu was best I've ever had. We bought the landry's rewards card and the GM came over to deliver it to us. He was a very nice man."

  • "Great experience, great service, the hostess helped by finding us an extra seat after a late addtion to the reservation, food great. Not set up for large parties as we had to split into two locations."

  • "We went to Grotto for dinner while on our honey moon. The food was excellent, and the waitstaff was great. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends."

  • "This was only our second visit to Grotto. If it was my first visit, I probably wouldn't go back! The first time we went the food and service was excellent. This time we were not so lucky. The service was average, service was less than good. The place is so dark you can barely read the menu. We most likely will not visit again!"

  • "Had to wait a very long time so we ordered our drinks & dinner at the same time. Ended up getting our salads before we got our drinks! Had to ask twice for more bread. Took FOREVER for our food - our sever never came to apologize or explain for the wait. When we finally got it, 3 of our 4 pizzas were cold (I think they would have been delicious if they were hot). I had mentioned in my reservations that it was my husband's 50th and also confirmed with the hostess that day that we were celebrating a big bday - the waiter never acknowledged it - to be fair I was so disappointed with the whole experience I didn't bring it up but had mentioned it twice before! Bummer dinner. Did i mention that it wasn't even busy so that wasn't the problem."

  • "I'm not a fan of Italian food, but I love the lobster bisque and chopped salad! Service is always superior and desserts are fabulous!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Food was good not great. Service was slow. Very noisy. With that said it is tough to find above average food in downtown and this food was above average. By no means on the level of he Strip properties. They have all the ingredients to make it really nice just a failure of execution. I am a pretty picky person so for most the experience here would be very good, I was looking for something more."
