Grotta di Fuoco, which translates to Fire Cave, is an industrial, rustic space with subtle lighting, raw steel, reclaimed wood, and concrete finishes. Step inside, descend below street level, and enter our vision of a cave. As for the fire, our focal point is a wood burning oven right next to the bar. You can sit close enough to feel the warmth, hear the crackle, and smell the scent of food being cooked, all while being entranced by the open flame. While Long Beach is rocking during the summer with the beach, Boardwalk, events, and outdoor dining, winter is when Grotta heats up. Open year round, the off season is the perfect time for out of towners to come to the West End for an unforgettable meal. We hope to see you all soon!

I was so impressed by all the food we had at Grotta di Fuoco! The beet and strawberry salad was super fresh and loved the ricotta at the bottom of the plate. Pizza was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. The pork ragu pasta had so much flavor and had just the right amount of kick to it. The chicken parm was so tender and almost fluffy! Fabulous dinner, can’t wait to go back!

The food was delicious and piping hot! We recommend everything we got: polenta fries, bruschetta, campanelle with pork, and the lemon gnocchi. Service was quick and kind. Atmosphere is great.

Nice, fairly-priced wine selection, exceptional meatball appetizer, always well prepared seafood entree. Even their simple pizza is light and delicious. Cheerful service from the entire staff. My wife and I love this restaurant.

our waiter was polite and helpful! One of the host was rude , There was a huge thunderstorm and we were going to get soaked, we waited 5 minutes parked to see if the rain would lighten up it was down pouring! we arrived 5, ran out of car 507... and then the first thing the host said was your 10 minutes late you have till 630 to eat. itgave is a bad vibe and doesn’t make us feel welcome especially for our special date night away from kids. We will not be going back.

Great food, love the ambiance especially seating at the bar. Cocktails not so good over shaken and consequently watered down. Stick with wine.

This place it’s the best in Long Beach from the minute you walk at the door and be greeted by the lovely Andrea from the very friendly bartender Eva and the chef Andrew who makes the most amazing Italian food I ever eating. Paul makes those delicious pizza and Kevin the amazing deserts. These people treats you so nice and make your night out feel so special. I highly recommend this place for special occasions, dates and everyday dining if you are a local or not. Thank you for the amazing experience every time I walk into your door. 😃

The food is existential. The chef at Grotta Di Fuoco is on another level; the creativity and marriage of flavors coupled with the downtown NYC ambiance makes this restaurant a must visit, multiple times.

Ya know I liked this place for the most part. There were times when we asked for items like salt and bread that were not made available (hard to eat meatballs which were very well done, without a piece of bread). But their take on groovy rustic Italian food was good. The ambience was kind of odd but I’ll contribute that to Covid. So if you want good eats and don’t care about the above mentioned. You might want to check out the Grotto

This was literally one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. The drinks were incredible, they said they only have small batch liquor and it showed in the quality of the cocktails. We both loved the Calabria margarita. The polenta fries, grilled calamari & ahi tuna were perfect. And the pans cotta was the best I’ve had since Florence!!
Thank you!!

Great service. We were late for the reservation and they were still wonderful to us. The waitress was so kind and friendly in a genuine way.

We did ask for a specific table that they weren't able to accommodate because somebody else had a reservation, but no one sat there all night. The table we got was just a bit awkward in the middle of the restaurant.

The food was perfect. Everything we ordered as great. This is ranked our new favorite restaurant in Long Beach.
