Food and service was very good and we celebrated my nephew's birthday. The staff kept his cake hidden until we were ready to sing for him. Love the food and atmosphere

This is some corporate exec's idea of Italian food. Anyone in Italy who ate hear would say this is not food an Italian would eat. Because it is in The Woodlands it also suffers from wait staff turnover, that makes every visit a craps shoot as to what service you will get at this restaurant. Make your own Italian food... More

The food is very good. We enjoy sitting at the bar. Destiny is an excellent bartender/server. We frequently pick up slices of Mezzanotte cake to go if we have a special occasion. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I'm very stingy with perfect scores. We will definitely be back!

Casual Italian atmosphere with a wood fired oven. Good selection of wines and a creative take on Italian cuisine. Moderately priced and in a great evening destination near the theaters and boutique shopping. The pasta dishes were just a bit dry but abundant. Since I cook Italian at home, this is a great break from the kitchen for me. I... More

I had a dish the first time some chicken I could not eat. second time a pasta dish that was good/average. the almond cake/sweet is very good. Food takes a long time to arrive. Waiters mostly ignore you.

Wine was good, happy hour deals during the week, small pizza slices with olive oil sauce are awesome. I am certainly coming back!

Grotto is my favorite when it comes to Italian. I sit at the bar and like seeing the guys making the pizzas. The portions are decent and filling, but high quality. The food came out fast and hot. The decor was inviting and amazing. Was tempted by the desert cart, but passed. I will be back.

The atmosphere is nice for the dinner hour, but the live music was too loud for conversation. Some of the items on the menu are not as they are described. For example, shrimp scampi actually came breaded, which is not usually the case. The sauce was very good, however.

My first visit was at Christmas time, family evening meal with the family on Christmas Eve. The food was excellent - Italian style. The decor smacked of Italy, wait staff attentive and prices were as expected. After the evening meal we walked around Market Street to enjoy the festive Christmas atmosphere.

Thank huzurlu
