We visited the Blue Grotto last weekend for drinks out on their patio...continental flair! It was so relaxed and fun that we decided to come back the following evening for dinner. We were not disappointed. We had great wines, and an antipasta platter that the...More

Nice idea but it is very loud, difficult to walk through & kind of a crazy set-up. There is movement on the stairs and in the upper dining floor which is disturbing. My pizza was burned badly and did not have the quattro cheeses as...More
