Excellent evening at Grotto. We came here to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Our sever, Nicole, was very friendly, knowledgable about the menu, and provided memorable service. The food was cooked to perfection and worth every penny. Very pleased with our experience and sure to be back!

Casino not very busy so the noise level was good. Lasagna was very good. The Caesar salad did not have very much green leaf to it, so not very enjoyable. Service was good.

Everything was good. I didn’t know the restaurant was on the casino floor. The main problem I had was with the maps app. The address is listed correctly on the open table app but when you get directed to the maps app for directions, the plot point on the map sent me to the middle of a neighborhood 1.2 miles away.

We had a fantastic time. Service was fantastic and the food was even better. Even though the restaurant is in the middle of a casino, they were able to seat us where the noise was nominal. Highly recommended!!

I have dined at Grotto before but only for happy hour, which I enjoyed. This was my first time having dinner. The experience was excellent. Our server, Conal was exceptional. Very courteous, polite, professional. The food was very good as well. We had the Penne Al Forno (it was a bit tad salty but might have been from the types of cheese - still very good) Lasagna and Pescatore (My mom doesn’t eat mussels so they substituted with more clams). So delicious and everything came out piping hot as food served should. It was a great experience. We will definitely visit again!

I read the reviews about Grotto and thought the only concern would have been the service. Since it was NYE I didn’t care if it took a while. That wasn’t the case. Service was good, waiter was nice bit the food was not good. I ordered the Rigatoni & eggplant and my husband had chicken Marsala. My dish was pitiful. The eggplant was so rough and over fried that it scratched my throat swallowing. The rigatoni plain sauce was fine. The chicken was fair small portion and nothing special. We told the waiter and he said he’ll let the chef know but didn’t offer me order a new dish which he should of. The best part of the meal was the dessert a Strawberry shortcake that was good. Other than that I’ll pass on the Grotto and stick with our original reservation at Dock’s in AC.
