My first visit was at Christmas time, family evening meal with the family on Christmas Eve. The food was excellent - Italian style. The decor smacked of Italy, wait staff attentive and prices were as expected. After the evening meal we walked around Market Street to enjoy the festive Christmas atmosphere.

Decided to go out on a romantic dinner with wife at this establishment and booked dinner for two. We booked on a Saturday in advance and could find a time slot for three hours later. They were very busy. Ample parking behind restaurant. If you enjoy freshly prepared traditional Italian dishes, this is the place to be. Although bit more... More

Our large group was seated promptly and service was brisk especially for the size of the table. Food was very good and the deserts are ridiculous and delicious!

We went on Christmas Eve. The waitress and manager suggested that we could have happy hour wine and order from the regular or happy hour menu. After taking order, the waitress said they decided not to have happy hour and did we still want our order at the full price. I asked her the price, she said she had no... More

Was able to walk to this restaurant from my hotel. They have a great outdoor seating area with a fireplace, where I had dinner. The wait staff was very attentive and informative. The food was very good and would recommend.

This is a very good restaurant. The atmosphere is great and the food is as well. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Would recommend that you try to make reservation or at least call ahead arrangements if possible as it is pretty crowded especially on the weekends.

We are regulars. Outstanding reception, service, specially pre-ordered meals (we have our favorite dish, no longer on the menu, but prepared at our advance request). Beverages salad and four meals were outstanding. Our son, who is active duty military and in uniform, was thanked for his Service by our waiter and Manager. We also received a military discount, which was... More

The atmosphere is great but the quality of the food has really dropped. Mix this with the items taken from our car by the valet n this becomes less attractive for a date night.

My wife and I and another couple decided to hit Market Street in The Woodlands for happy hour. We started at Grotto and never left! Their food and drinks are sublime. A repeat for sure!

I usually make a point of visiting 3 times before deciding whether or not to return...and all three times failed me. The food is decent, but not at the price they charge. One time the waiter recommended the pizza-oven grilled steak. The meat was so tough I couldn't eat it. The manager comped the steak but for that price I... More
