Description: Inspired by classic Southern Italian cooking, Galveston's newest Italian restaurant Grotto features delicious veal, chicken, seafood and house made pastas. Grotto's food and breath-taking décor are complimented by beachside views in Galveston Island's premiere resort and hotel. Wine connoisseurs will be impressed with the extensive collection of Italian and domestic selections. With our winning combination of impeccable service, superb cuisine and passion for detail, Grotto is the perfect restaurant in Galveston for Italian dining.

We had dinner at the Grotto at the San Luis in Galveston on Sept. 22, 2017. Thomas Musquiz ensured that we had great service, was aware of food offered and made sure we had an enjoyable meal including our table location. Our server Richard Marler was excellent. He explained all the food items and specials. We enjoyed our food and plan to return soon.

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.
