Couldn't leave Houston without going to Grotto's!! Alfredo always does a great job of taking care of us! I had my usual, sea bass which is always excellent and perfectly cooked... and I love the asparagus that comes with it! My husband wanted shrimp scampi...More

I asked for an off the menu concoction of Angel Hair Pasta and shrimp with a simple oil, lemon and garlic sauce. It was excellent as was the service. Very nice place and reasonable parking +valets. The calamari starter was good too.

Since the Landry's umbrella has absorbed the Grotto all of the food has become generic, with a pre-made taste. They no longer allow the chef to focus on uniquity or quality. Food was comparable to Chili's or Applebees. I wish they'd bring back the essence...More

The service was great, the food was delicious, but the physical space was very loud. My hungry-but-not-too-hungry family shared the sausage and peppers pizza, ravioli with vodka sauce and a Caesar salad. Each dish was really good. No problems with the food or the service....More

We came to the Grotto before a concert. I had the sesame crusted fish. It was delicious & cooked to perfection. Well be back! Also, our waitress, Melissa, was knowledgeable & friendly. We request her when we go there now.

Had a wonderful birthday lunch here. Everyone got their favorites- tomato basil soup, chopped salad and the fried shrimp and calamari salad...upbeat, fun atmosphere and very attentive service! Fabulous dessert cart- love the strawberry cake!

This eatery always proves to be a good failsafe for us. We like the food even though the portions can be small. The strawberry cassata is outstanding!

We had the Veal San Pietro and the Meatzza Pizza and both were very good. Rafael was our waiter and although he spoke Italian, he and most of the other waiters seemed to be Hispanic rather than Italian. He was great and really treated us...More
