I'm sensing a love hate thing with reviewers of Grottos. I'm coming off the fence and declaring myself in the second camp. This is not pizza as I know and love it. Still, no accounting for taste and they seem to love it in Delaware.

Stopped by for a light lunch to hold us over until dinner after doing some shopping at the Tangier Outlets in Rehoboth. We split a turkey panini. It was very good. It came with fries. The sandwich was good it could have used some more turkey and some of the bacon was under cooked. The bacon needed to be crispier.... More

Ate at this location on a Friday night and it was not overly crowded. the food came out fast and the steak sandwiches exceeded expectations for a place famous for the pizza. The only negative was that when one of the kids switched from lemonade to chocolate milk - they charged us for both and never said anything about it.... More

Went here as the kids really wanted pizza, but still a mistake! The Staff was nice and one can't fault them, but the pizzas were really dire and were served on plastic plates, too this a bunch of teenage boys were left in to dine without T-shirts, which just added to the poor experience.

Our family loves Grottos. There are plenty of pizza choices at the beach but we always come back to this one. We have purchased their sauce in a jar to enjoy at home, too.

I stopped in to the Grotto Pizza store on a Friday night to bring home food for dinner. They were very efficient taking my order and it was ready as promised. Since it was offseason I tend to give beach restaurants a break, but with most pizza pies priced close to $20+ I expected higher quality. It was average at... More

It is possible that there is neither a worse looking nor worse tasting pizza to be found other than the circular food (masquerading as pizza) at Grotto Pizza. We experienced a change of plans last minute, detouring from Hooked to take a sick family member home. Pizza was the easy choice. Grotto Pizza was the wrong choice, we learned too... More

This place could use a cleaning and get rid of the plates with words carved in them. The pizza was very good. Also ordered a salad that was straight from a bag. Not impressed with the salad at all. Get fresh stuff! It's summer!

It is hard to believe this is one of Delaware's top rated pizza restaurants. They have outlets everywhere. Great for families and a quick pizza, but real pizza - no way. The service is efficient, its clean and relatively inexpensive. But it's chain produced pizza. If you want that, call Papa John's or Dominoes. Otherwise go to P.I.E. in Bethany... More

Great late night. Have had it delivered in Reho, this time picked up. The sauce is sweet and delicious.
