My wife and her two friends got the Salmon, I had lobster bisque, and the Gameberoni. All were fantastic! It's very loud in there though, but what you'd expect being in the convention center

We eat out in Houston a LOT. I should have reviewed Grotto a million times over, but I guess I eat here so often that I don't take the time to review. So, here is the 20 year overdue review. Grotto is awesome. We probably eat here once/week, and know most of the waiters by name. Grotto is a place... More

Go hungry. A feast for the eyes and palate. Wonder Italian food. Courteous and attentive staff. Great special occasion choice. Save room for dessert since you will want everything on the dessert cart.

Wow... the best food by far in Houston. Unique presentations, meat and cheese brought from Italy. Great cappuccinos and desserts. Little pricey but great for the quality.

I went to the one in downtown location. Very nice atmosphere inside. Service was good and quick. I had very nice soup and see food. I have no hesitation to recommend. If I will come back to Houston, I will go back there again.

This was a second time to eat here and both times were great. We ate out side on the patio and food and service were great. This is a wonderful place for Italian food. A slight improvement could be done with the Grotto salad. I thought it would have more olives and other items to complete the chopped lettuce. Wife... More
