The Waiter was ok not great. I Asked for a salad with olive oil on side -he brought me a salad with Balsamic dressing--too much vinegar for me. We ordered a pizza with mushroom and sausage. The pizza was soggy not cooked, not too sure the sausage was cooked all the way either.. Waiter did not offer a new salad... More

A friend and I tried Grotto at the Golden Nugget for lunch on a Friday. We weren't sure what to expect, but the nicer restaurants open for lunch in Atlantic City during the week are limited. Grotto is in the middle of the casino floor, so we weren't sure what to expect. Turns out we were pleasantly surprised. Although the... More

I had to order from the bar for take out - the bartender was so rude to me that I would never return there. I have been there before and the bartender was so nice. This guy needs to go. Unfortunately I did not get his name.

We were staying at the golden nugget with children and getting in late, so we wanted a dinner option in the hotel. Vics looked great but didn't seem to be a good fit for my younger kids so we looked at the reviews for the Grotto and made a reservation thru open table. We arrived at 9:15 and a young... More

We went for NY Eve. Service was attentive from our waiter but water refills, etc from the support staff was spotty. Bar was busy but got the wrong cocktail two different times. The bruschetta was good but limp allowing the topping to slide off when picked up. Calamaretti was greasy, really greasy. Probably the worst the six of us have... More

We frequently visit Atlantic city and when we do stay most often at Golden Nugget. The grotto is kind of hidden from view because you actually enter the casino and the Grotto sits higher (up several steps) on like a big platform. They have both a Pizza bar but also a nice atmosphere seating area with possibly 30 +- tables/booths.... More

Service was excellent. Food was very good, but did not wow me or my wife. Felt like it just wasn't there for fine dining, which hurts the value score. I may go try again, in the future but with all of the other restaurants in ac it may be a while. I would say a little disappointing for fine dining.... More

We ate here during the #50bitesAC promotion/charity event. My wife and I had the Peperoni Arrostiti Sicillani. Wasn't that great. Very oily, not that hot and took a very long time to get it. Actually the bread was the best part.

We went here on our monthly visit to the Golden Nugget. The meal was good, but it was not great. My wife had rigatoni siciliano, with eggplant and ricotta and pomidoro sauce.

The Grotto serves some family style food, but it is not their entire menu. You can get individual meals here. Very good food and very good service.
