Very limited menu, it’s time to bring back the full menu… the wait for pizza to come out is way too long. Bread was horrible, not the Grottos we are accustomed to. No variety. Have to ask a for every little thing.
We loved Grotto! Although there is a very limited menu, the spaghetti bolognese and pizza were amazing! Service was a little slow due to the waitstaff shortage, but it didn’t bother us at all. I’m glad we chose Grotto for our date.
Margherita pizza is delish!! I love the atmosphere too
Menu extremely limited. Had to flag waitress for silverware, refills, cheese, pretty much everything. Food was bland and flavorless
My fettuccine sauce was too watery our salad I had too many Coors in it we had to ask for bread very limited menu They only have two pasta dishes some pizza no appetizer very disappointing
Limited menu, but overall, we enjoyed it.
Host was a bit rude as we arrived 15 minutes late and was told that our table had been given away without texting or calling to confirm if we were still coming. Waited another 30 minutes before we could get a table even though there were plenty tables open and guest arriving after us were seated ahead of us even though they had a later time reservation.
Great service, but that pizza we got was spectacular! Will definitely go back when we visit again!
Very fast service even when they were busy
The menu is extremely limited and very disappointing. No dessert options either!
Excellent food and service. The menu has been reduced so not a big variety but everything was great. Only negative was that there is such a glare in the late afternoon that you can hardly see. Although the shades were lowered on the windows, there were no shades on the door.
We normally like Grotto. Food was great, most expensive cup of tomato basil soup I’ve ever had. I guess Covid has taken its toll on the services at restaurants because it was horrible. Hope to go back when things get better after everyone gets back to work since the government cheese has run out.
They are working with a VERY limited menu...2 apps, 2 pastas, 3 or 4 pizzas. We were there for the pizza so, fine by me! We had the thin meatza...FABULOUS! And the frozen bellinis! DON'T GET ME STARTED! DELICIOSO! and strong! Waitress was great! And the place was packed and only one other waitress! COME BACKTO WORK, PEOPLE! Tip big to those out there humping!
Very disappointed! Tiny menu hardly anything cocktail was good my ravioli which wasn’t even on the menu was so spicy had to send it back n wait which my friends were done so I just took it to go n none their prices were definitely not worth it ! Over $25 for spaghetti with 1 meatball n lasagna they said didn’t taste like homemade sauce! Won’t be going back
FANTASTIC PLACE TO ENTERTAIN FRIENDS. EASY TO TALK WITH EACH OTHER WHILE EATING OR DRINKING, DURING YOUR CELEBRATION OF A BIRTHDAY PARTY OR JUST OUT FOR A MEAL. SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL!
Very disappointed in the quality of our dinners. Pizza for the kids was good
6pm reservations. Had to wait 20 minutes for the table. No busboys to clear tables. Very limited menu. However pizza and salad were good. Place is very noisy. Cannot have a conversation without raising voices. Just the ambiance makes it a no go again for me
Brought my bestie here to celebrate her birthday before the ZZ Top concert. It took a while for us to be seated. Only two hostesses; and they were the ones cleaning the tables. Waitress was great, but the menu was lacking (I know, it's a pandemic). Even though the food was good, it was extremely garlic-y. When making the reservation, I was asked if we were celebrating anything and I selected "Birthday." I don't know why, as it wasn't even acknowledged. Kinda bummed about that. It would've made the experience nicer.
Service was slow
The spaghetti bolognese was good but a cup of pasta drowning in sauce for $20 was a bit disappointing. My dinner was ready about 20min before my husband's $24 pizza, so he watched me eat, then I watched him.
Can’t wait to get back to their normal menu
We have eaten here many times. Limited menu but still food was excellent.
We were not expecting the small menu. We have eaten at Houston and the woodlands (witch they closed down for steak house).
What they furnished was good.
Great service from Hannah. The lasagna special was delicious.
Our server Holden was excellent.
The service and food continues to be Grotto standard - excellent, although the menu continues to be very limited so glad it has reopened at GNLC
Nice restaurant, the food wasn’t good and the waitress got our entire table orders wrong.
It should state somewhere when making reservations, that you are serving a very limited menu. Had we known before making reservations, we would have gone somewhere else.
Excellent food, great wine selection, and outstanding customer service.
Food was terrible. Limited menu, no appetizers, no main dishes, and only 2 pasta dishes. Pasta tasted like it had been sitting out all day.
Very Limited menu is a huge disappointment, even though I enjoyed the meal, I may look to go somewhere else.
The service from the waiter was excellent.
Call and ask for the items on the menu before showing up.
Disappointed - was unaware of their very limited menu until we were seated. 2 choices for each- salad, soup, pasta entree - and 4 pizza choices. Had to make the most of it because it would have been impossible to get a seat anywhere else.
Food and service were wonderful!
My dinner was so cold. Only the plate was hot. Very disappointing.
Limited menu but choices were some.of thier best dishes with two off menu options. Jerry was an attentive server and Ashley made sure our visit was satisfactory.
It's been awhile since we had dinner at the Grotto but it was like riding a bike but more delightful. Holden provided above and beyond service and the wine paired with our meal was a winner. Kudo's to all the Folks at Grotto Ristorante and we look forward to seeing you again real soon...
Overall it was pretty good. Menu was very limited, and felt rushed as it was very busy. The food was great, very hot and tasty.
Very, very, very small selection of food on menu.
If you don’t want soup, salad, spaghetti, pasta with a cream sauce or pizza this would not be the place to go. We had 1 soup, 1 salad, pasta and pizza for 80 dollars😬. Usually love Grotto- maybe after the works isn’t crazy anymore they will expand their menu.
We, were disappointed the Menu selection for sure, Pizza was all that was available along with 2 other selections, there was NO bread, but our waitress was so kind to get us some from next door, in closing we were very disappointed with the restaurant, but our Waitress was great
Grotto still has a limited menu. We chose the restaurant because of the gluten sensitive selections. The gluten free pasta was by far the worst I have ever eaten. It was over cooked and had the consistency of paste. Unfortunately, staff members are in short supply and by the time our waiter made it back to us and offered to replace my meal everyone else in the party was finished. The other four all ordered pizza and we’re pleased with their selections.
