We were staying at the golden nugget with children and getting in late, so we wanted a dinner option in the hotel. Vics looked great but didn't seem to be a good fit for my younger kids so we looked at the reviews for the Grotto and made a reservation thru open table. We arrived at 9:15 and a young... More

We went for NY Eve. Service was attentive from our waiter but water refills, etc from the support staff was spotty. Bar was busy but got the wrong cocktail two different times. The bruschetta was good but limp allowing the topping to slide off when picked up. Calamaretti was greasy, really greasy. Probably the worst the six of us have... More

We frequently visit Atlantic city and when we do stay most often at Golden Nugget. The grotto is kind of hidden from view because you actually enter the casino and the Grotto sits higher (up several steps) on like a big platform. They have both a Pizza bar but also a nice atmosphere seating area with possibly 30 +- tables/booths.... More

Service was excellent. Food was very good, but did not wow me or my wife. Felt like it just wasn't there for fine dining, which hurts the value score. I may go try again, in the future but with all of the other restaurants in ac it may be a while. I would say a little disappointing for fine dining.... More

We ate here during the #50bitesAC promotion/charity event. My wife and I had the Peperoni Arrostiti Sicillani. Wasn't that great. Very oily, not that hot and took a very long time to get it. Actually the bread was the best part.

We went here on our monthly visit to the Golden Nugget. The meal was good, but it was not great. My wife had rigatoni siciliano, with eggplant and ricotta and pomidoro sauce. I had the veal saltimboca special with angel hair. Both were delicious, in fact my wife took her leftovers to go. Mine was a small portion, could have... More

The Grotto serves some family style food, but it is not their entire menu. You can get individual meals here. Very good food and very good service.

We started in the bar area for Happy Hour (4-7). Our bartender, Billy was great, as usual. Had the arancini (rice balls), I had merlot, my wife had the sweet tea vodka. Went into the Dining Room and our server was Bill (not the bartender). My wife had the veal marsala with spinach, I had the osso bucco with saffron... More

We dine here several times a year when we visit Atlantic City. The food and prices are good and they always give crayons and paper to our little ones. Be sure to ask for Chris who just started and waited on us twice in two days!
