The food was amazing, as always. This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Boston, a true gem!
Great service and amazing food!
Server was excellent, helped me narrow my choices.
Loved the atmosphere.
Food was very good. Good value on prefixed
The food was excellent!!
We are from out of state and found Grotto was a short walk from the place we are staying at and decided it was a perfect fit since we are obsessed with Italian! Hands down, this was an AMAZING first impression of Boston cuisine and we recommend everyone to give this place a try. (BTW the brussel sprouts as a appetizer was to die for.)
We’ve been here many times before but this was our first visit during COVID and it did not disappoint. Same DELICIOUS food and romantic atmosphere. Felt safe throughout the experience. Will definitely be back soon!
Our New Year’s Eve dining experience at Grotto was amazing! My boyfriend and I got a romantic table in the corner, and received nothing but the best service all evening. The Caesar salad, Carne, and Bolognese sent us home happy and full of delicious food. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic date night or for a quaint dinner out with friends! I will be coming back!
Great location to celebrate our 20th anniversary! The food and atmosphere were excellent.
No need to travel to the North End for amazing Italian food. Grotto is pure perfection every time we are there.
2nd time dining here and once again did not disappoint. I was completely amazed by their garlic soup this time. Delicious!!!
Grotto is my fav restaurant in Boston! Amazing food and wonderful service and ambiance. So, so wonderful!
Intimate, cozy, delicious. Place is tiny, but a gem. Will certainly be heading back. Wes, our server was a cool dude!
Food is amazing!!!! Definitely coming back
Food was good. Service was good. The lighting was so dark, I could barely see what I was eating. While signing the check...we saw a mouse run across the dining room floor. Completely ruined our experience.
Amazing food. The duck confit was outstanding, as were the accompanying Brussels sprouts - and that was just the appetizer. Beef Wellington was so tender and flavorful. Everything was perfect.
I loved almost everything about the place, food was good, the staff was friendly, and it was quiet to have good conversations. Only compliant I have is it was very dark, but it matched the amibance.
This is the ultimate date night destination. The food was outstanding. I will be going back and this is my new favorite Italian spot in Boston.
AMAZING food, great ambiance, and wonderful service. Highly recommend!!
Very nice setting.
This was my first time at grotto and it is now one of my favorite places to eat when I am in Boston! Love the ambience. The food and the pace of the evening were perfect. My only complaint is that the wine list, although good, is very expensive with few choices below $70 ..... makes it hard to order more than one bottle.
Amazing food with great service. Would highly recommend
Food was well prepared and tasted good. The dining area was beautiful and cozy. However, I was disappointed while eating and witnessing a mouse running around the restaurant.
Great dinner...great time
We went to Grotto for our anniversary dinner. The food was incredible! It's a tiny little place you have to walk down into. They have plexiglass between well spaced tables. Our waiter was great, don't ask for substitutions on the menu, the answer is NO. The food was amazing, the portions are huge! Highly recommend this tiny place for a romantic dinner.
Their newly-launched brunch was awesome. We were the only table for most of our meal, and the service was fantastic. The cavatelle was delicious, as was the red sauce, eggs, and there were plenty of beverage options!
The food was DELICIOUS, the prix fixe menu was a great deal, the ambiance was beautiful and romantic, and the staff was sweet and attentive. Can't wait to go back the next time we're in Boston!
Amazing food, brilliant clean atmosphere and kind staff
Delicious food. Great service. Romantic.
Fantastic quality of food and equally good service. Wine selection is a bit limited. Cocktail I tried was also very well made.
The restaurant is small and appears a bit rundown. We went there for a milestone birthday. I would have chosen a better ambiance restaurant over this however the food and service more than made up for that. If you can look past the shape the restaurant is in, then you are in for a treat.
Nice hidden gem. $1 oysters brought us in, and will probably keep us coming back. Wondering if the menu changes out seasonally.
the best in town, highly recommend have been a bunch will keep going
Went for the $1 oyster deal but stayed to try some of the other flavors. Beat salad was delicious. Servers were very attentive. Never would have known it was there if I had not seen the oyster deal on a BostonChefs email. Not much in the way of parking if you do not live in the area, but not a far walk to trains and other parking options.
First time going here. Great date night spot. 9.3/10 loved the wine and the food selection was great
Amazing food, the Carne is absolutely to die for. So tender and all the right seasonings.
Everything was great, the food is unbelievable and our server Danny was amazing. Thank you!
Lovely! Everything was perfect!
Food was excellent and the service couldn’t been better
Grotto is simply amazing! Classic Italian food with a modern twist. We love coming here!
