Family came in from San Antonio, so I decided to take to my favorite Italian restaurant on the island. So many options from the pizza to the pasta! Even the dessert was had to choose from! From the cassata to tiramisu. Josh was on top of things. Thanks Thomas for the excellent choice of Appetizers . Everyone loved it and Will be back soon.

We have visited several of the finer dining restaurants on the Island including the Steak House at the San Luis and we decided to give the Grotto a try. Our waiter was impersonal and made us feel that we had to rush through dinner. This may have been due to the very large party having dinner. My wife and I had the house salad which was inedible due the heavy use of vinegar. Fortunately the waitress did not charge us for the salads. The main course were enjoyable. With the increasing number of fine dinning restaurants on the Island it's doubtful we'll be returning here.

The atmosphere is great but service is not up to par and food is not consistent...needs to be more consistent in quality of food ...move over to the other restaurants in the San Luis for consistency

We have been to the restaurant in Houston and found the food much better. The waiter was very good and offered good suggestions on the choices. Drinks are weak and over priced.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Grotto for a bachelorette party. The restaurant was extremely accommodating and the food was amazing. Our waiter Joshua went above and beyond and we feel he truly set our dining experience apart from any other! Tilman even stopped by for a pic! ☺️
