Grabbed a quick dinner with colleagues. Not many gluten free options, but the house antipasto salad with grilled chicken was decent. Order it chopped. Happy to have gelato too.

This is the only pizza I will eat. My wife loves it. I love it. Beers are limited, but good enough. Wings are pricey, but worth it. Get them well done because they are big.

Pizza’s a tough review; most of us have strong opinions of the style and flavors that we prefer. In my opinion Grotto’s pizza is the best, bar none! They make a true “boardwalk pizza” and that’s the root of their establishment, they started on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Whether you are eating in their restaurants or it’s been... More

Our friends who live in Wilmington recommended this place for pizza and this was our choice for take-away pizza. They were right, the pizza and salads were very good at friendly prices.

If you never had Grottos pizza well....after trying it you will understand why no one makes pizza like that, and I mean no one, it's different. Maybe its a Delaware thing but I don't get it. I file it under drunk food only.

Ordered Pizza, the employee on the phone was very rude and obnoxious and when we inquired about the status of our late order. No chance we will contact them in the future.

I ate several times at this Grotto's when I lived nearby. It's been several years - stopped by on the way to D.C. and was mildly disappointed. The food was okay, but not as good as I remember. Hopefully it was just an off-day for some reason. Plenty of free popcorn though!

I was traveling from Philly back to WV and stumbled across this awesome place. The boneless chicken wings were some of the best I've ever had. They were tender and had plenty of sauce (a lot of places fry them until they're really crispy and not as good). I also ordered a personal pepperoni pizza and it was delicious. For... More

My wife and I stop at Grotto's Pizza every time we drop her car off for repairs. This is a very good place for pizza and the service is always good.
