When there's so much variety of good food and restaurants in NY, we were unlucky to spend a dinner at Grotto. It felt like a tourist trap in the end, the food was really average, way over priced and lacked the 'love' we were really...More

Grotto is one of my favorite restaurant in the financial district. I've been going there for 14 years. My favorite dish is the Shrimp Parm, but recently the Shrimp Fra Diavolo may be inching its way into the number 1 spot. I love the combination...More

Hard to get a good reservation. We got one at 10:15pm. Apparently, a lot of other people paying too much for very little portions. Don't misunderstand me. I don't mind paying for a good meal, but food overpriced and no deviations from menu. We ordered...More

We went there with a Living Social coupon. Despite the fact we didn't make a reservation, the restaurant found seats for us. The food and wine were excellent. The coupon was for one shared appetizer (Excellent), two pastas (also excellent), and one shared dessert (Also...More

A very small narrow restaurant underground with the vaguely nautical feel that comes from using portholes for lighting. I had the carpaccio and a pasta with squid, both of which were great. I also managed to sample my neighbors steak and fries which was also...More
