At the Grotto, everything is homemade on-premise. It’s part of our unsurpassed passion for detail. Our constantly-evolving menu is based on season and availability of superb ingredients, yet we make sure to offer the old standards that our patrons have been enjoying for years.
Start with our huge antipasti display. It’s the largest you’ll find, and always filled with the freshest creations from our kitchen, using seasonal ingredients from both Houston and from Italy.
“The vivid antipasti array that runs along an interior counter is flat-out glorious.” – Houston Chronicle
Satisfy your craving for pasta with one of our special dishes. (As with everything at The Grotto, our pastas are made from scratch in our kitchen.) Sample the superb Cappellini Amatriciana, or enjoy our classic Lasagne.
Our entrees are truly spectacular; prepared as it is in the Old Country. Whether you choose fish, chicken, veal, shellfish, or beef, you can be sure of the most authentic and delicious Italian food this side of the Bay of Naples.
The conclusion of your meal is worth waiting for. “I would come to this restaurant solely for the strawberry-and-ricotta angel-food bombe, a high and mighty dome so light and savory you almost forget that it’s sweet. Or for the zuccotto, an Italian ricotta cake dusted with crushed pistachios. Or for the flourless chocolate cake that seems impossibly rich and moist.” – Houston Chronicle
From the latest creation of our pastry chefs, to our satin-smooth cheesecake (considered by many to be the best in town) you’ll find the perfect way to wind up a memorable meal.
