They made my wife and I a dish they didn't even serve anymore. Calamari was excellent. Ok now... the lasagna was the best I have ever had. A party of flavors in your mouth.

Perfect place for birthday dinner
Monique, our server, was outstanding. She gave us perfect advice on what to order, and was more than willing to modify anything on the menu to our liking. The food was delicious and gorgeous to look at, the portions were generous, and the birthday cake at the end of our meal made the whole evening so special, and spectacular. I can't say enough about our evening at Grotto - fabulous!

A great sequel of the original.
I am spoiled by the original Grotto in Houston, and I was disappointed that some of my favorite items were missing from the menu, such as the autumn salad, but the food was excellent. I definitely recommend this Grotto.

Grotto has become a tradition
Grotto has become a tradition for me on my first night in Vegas anytime I come out. Always stay at the Golden Nugget and always have my first meal here. The Veal Parm is beyond excellent and the desserts are exceptional.
Very professional though not stuffy staff members. Make sure you sign up for a Landry's Select card before dining at Landry's properties. The rewards are aggressive with $25 coming back to you for every $250 spent in their restaurants.

My husband and I ate here
My husband and I ate here with our two young boys just on a wim. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Our waitress Denise grew up in the area and was able to give us some Insight on not only the menu but the areas and what to see and do. She definitely went beyond your typical server. The food was excellent. It had those extra special touches that make a good restaurant great. I must say the atmosphere was a bit noisy andkinda like a pub style so if you are looking for quiet and romantic this is not a place for you. I will come back here on my next visit. For the price of the meal, I feel you got your money's worth and then some.

Party of 6, family and friends
Party of 6, family and friends went here, had a fantastic time. Very attentive staff, food was great, tasty! A little cramped but we were in Vegas! I would certainly recommend and will visit again as we always stay in the Golden Nugget.

First Trip to Vegas
The waiter, Steve, was outstanding. He answered questions and removed fear of choosing entrees never ordered before. he gave his preferences and was very jovial. Our group had a great time!! The food was OUTSTANDING!! We all ate too much. Each bite was terrific! If I ever go back to Vegas, I will eat at the Grotto again.

Great food and service every visit!
The food is outstanding and the service is outstanding and the ambiance in the small room looking out to the pool area is wonderful. We always use open table to book our reservations at the Grotto and always request the small room .. our request has been honored each time!!

I was a little disappointed
I was a little disappointed in the food, especially since it was fairly expensive, but the service was impeccable. Denise is a gem, who took care of our every need after Jose did a great job starting us off. There were 6 of us for a surprise farewell party and we were more demanding than usual. All of our requests were handled with a smile and we felt totally welcomed and pampered.

Overall A Very Enjoyable Meal
Overall a pleasant meal with friends and family. A relaxed and informal meal. The waiter and staff were friendly and the service good. The food was very good especially the veal dishes. Salads were also very good. All for a fairly reasonable price in Las Vegas.

Loved the Grotto as always
A great Italian restaurant right in the heart of the best downtown casino in Vegas. Great fresh pasta, good service, a super wine list, and the staff always tries to accommodate our advance seating requests. If you have not tried this spot, you should!

We celebrated my wife's birthday with another couple and the service and food was great. They gave my wife a huge slice of the Italian 7 layer wedding cake. We had a great time.

The food was so good. The desserts were out of this world! Atmosphere was great!

Great food, extremely noisy.
Great food, extremely noisy. Table are close together so get prepared to be bumped by others as well as the dessert cart.

Good Food, Neat Location
The Grotto is right by the Golden Nugget Pool and Shark Tank. It is a great place for people watching. My pizza could have been more done on the bottom, but overall the food is good. Tomato Basil soup was excellent as was my husband's Seafood Linguine.

Give it a Grotto!
Being so far from water I was skeptical about having the calamari....here no problem. Our waiter, Arturo, reminded me that were less than 90 by plane and the seafood is fresh. When we first entered Grotto we noticed that it had an old world Italian design, dim lighting and a great aroma. This was a very good restaurant in old Vegas. The food was delicious, the sangria was delicious and the service was impeccable
If you get the chance and check it out ask to sit with Arturo, great waiter!

Always a favorite
Everytime that I go to Las Vegas a make a point of eating at this restaurant and having a table by the window. Wonderful place
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have eaten here several times. The service is always fabulous and the food is great. Meatballs are huge, FYI. Two is plenty. The lasagna is wonderful, but rich. I also recommend the mozzarella for appetizer.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant at Golden Nuggett
Always go to the Golden Nugget and eat at the Grotto every time I am on LV. For some reason they could not locate my reservation but were so nice that they had us seated within 5 minutes. And they were packed. I call that great customer service and our group of 5 could sit down and enjoy. Food terrific and service even better Highly recommend

always a treat
Dining at the Grotto is a favorite thing to do in Las Vegas for me and my wife. The food is great, the service is excellent, the wine list is diverse, and having a drink at the bar beforehand is always very lovely (although it would even be lovelier if they turned off the TV).
Thanks Grotto--see you next time!

Best Italian Food in Vegas
This was our second visit to Grotto and again the food, service and overall experience did not disappoint. The food is outstanding. The meatball appetizer was simply delicious and my eggplant parmesan was one of the best I have ever had. The grotto's signature dessert is something you will not want to miss. Our waitress told us that it is a ricotta based cake soaked in almond that is layered with real whipped cream and fresh strawberries. This restaurant will forever be on our list of places to eat when we visit Las Vegas.

Old-school relief from The Strip
At first, I was kind of blown away by the weird authenticity of the decor and vibe —how I imagined Vegas to be—kinda cheesy as though a 70s bomb went off. As we settled in and had a drink and took in the surroundings, I found myself liking it more and more, despite the fact the waiter attempted clumsy/awkward/disingenuous flattery by asking for my ID (I'm over 50). Still, he was really great, friendly and efficient. The shrimp cocktail was excellent, we had some great wine by the glass and a pizza. I expected to be underwhelmed, but the pizza was wonderful—thin and crispy with lots of flavor and fresh ingredients. If I ever come to Vegas again, I will definitely be back.

A busy restaurant with a good
A busy restaurant with a good menu, wide selection of food/wine.. The waitress was very helpful in suggestions and advising us not to order too much as the portions were quite large. Good location next to the pool. if you want a reasonable quality meal at a moderare price this will suit you fine.

Wonderful birthday dinner
We ate at the Grotto, for my birthday dinner and the food was delicious. I had a special request for a dish not on the menu and they made it for me. Our waiter was attentive but a bit rude. That was the only obvious problem.

Casino Wrapped Gem
A wonderful gem full of unique dishes, impeccable service & elegant wines. Be prepared to spend a good amount of money but know that it is all worth it.

Grotto Surpassed Recommendations
Went to Grotto before hitting Fremont St. Were seated in the more intimate dining room. Service was great, food even better. Prices reasonable also.Spinach/artichoke dip appetizer – usually this can be somewhat ho-hum but the Grotto's was delicious. Could actually taste the artichoke and spinach. My wife had the pasta gamberreti which had six huge shrimp and great sauce. On the waiter's recommendation as I couldn't decide between two items, I had the rigatoni w/ sausagein light cream sauce. Perfectly cooked pasta, great (and a lot of) grilled sausage, and sauced just right. Portions are ample. Huge wine list also, with something in every price range. We would definitely return to the Grotto and will recommend to others.

We will go again and bring friends
It was our date night and we decided to try the Grotto. We were very pleased to have great service, the bread was tasty. Everything we ordered was made perfectly I had the Ravioli and Shrimp cocktail, my husband had brushetta and salmon. We did see the pizza's going by and next time we will try one they also looked very good. I would definitely recommend this place .

Delicious food, courteous and efficient staff. What more can you ask for?

Really good Italian Food
I've been to Grotto several times, whenever I'm in Las Vegas I make some excuse to get over there.
Very good old school Italian.
Great view of the pool area with all the latest bathing suits :-)
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is very accommodating to small and large groups. Food is good, a little noisy, especially on the weekends. Like the location and if seeing a show at the Golden Nugget, very convenient.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and a very nice waitress
The food was great and they didn't have a problem varying from the menu to change an item and the bread is to die for.
Our waitress was very informed and sooooo nice.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was good-service was great
Homemade everything taste. Great location and a server that was probably the friendliest and most efficient we've ever had the luck of having. Its our fave spot every time we head to Vegas !
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good, yet moderate price
Vegas should have more restaurants like Grotto that serve very good food at moderate prices. Excellent ambiance, and our server was superb. Highly attentive to our needs, and cooperative in working around dietary limitations.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food. Good service.
I think the service could have been better simply because they were so darned busy!
The food was great, wine selection was great. I would definitely do it again...

We were a group of six with three kids. They enjoyed the hotel and checking out the pool area (which is fabulous - fountains, aquarium with a water slide tube through it, cool cabanas, and hip lounge areas) while we were waiting for the food.
My veal with mushrooms and artichokes was amazing. My daughter had the fish/shrimp entree and loved it. Our waitress was super sweet - I wish I could remember her name. Three days and lots more Vegas adventures have transpired since our meal! Easy access to the wildness/atmosphere of Fulton Street Experience from here, too.
