I am so glad I did NOT read some of the reviews before we went here. The food was delicious and excellent service. We went mid afternoon and were surprised it was still considered lunch. We chose one of the "specials." In our case it...More
Overall good place. Romantic atmosphere. Nice and authentic looking bar. Nice.and.helpful staff. Good wine! Best to order- homemade pasta! Not anything special. Good salad and I reccomend the fettuccini with cream sauce and shrimp. Touristy yes. Do your research before you eat at little italy.

I should have known, but hope springs eternal. The best part of this lunch was the beer special. I couldn’t even finish my chicken parmigiana. In fact, I’m writing this review from the restaurant in the hope that I can spare someone else my mistake....More
We were heading to Angelo's of Mulberry when we stopped here to review the menu, the host came to greet us and explained the specials, we decided to stay and eat at The Grotta. The service was very good the waiter was not overbearing but...More
