This is a nice restaurant in our neighborhood. Stylish, minimalist décor – blonde wood, etc. I’ve felt the pizzas were a bit small for the price, not good for sharing. On our last visit, I had mushroom risotto that was very good. My wife had hummus, smoked baba ghanoush, cucumber yogurt with pita. Good for both omni and vegetarian tastes. Good wine selection. Good happy hour. We’ll go back occasionally.

Blue Grotto is in the Brookside area of Kansas City, MO. The pizza is Neapolitan style and is the best in KC. Thin, chewy, and perfect sauce. Ask for an off menu pizza - "Sam's Special". Sam is the bartender and if you can, sit at the bar, order a beer or wine, converse with Sam, and order the Sam's Special - lamb sausage, mozz, and add 'shrooms if you would like. It is amazing. Friendly folks, great wine list at fair prices, and all the ambience of a neighborhood joint that excels in everything it does.

Great folks, very gracious to the customers needs. I find it a very nice place to have a drink or brunch, my wife also works in Brookside, so very convenient to drop in for lunch or drinks after work.

The food was a 4 - had a salad and the soup of the day. The service was a 2 - nice, but spotty and lots of waiting time in between visits from the wait staff. We got to the restaurant about 20 minutes before they started serving food, which was fine because we intended to order a drink first. They told us we could sit wherever we liked. We asked if sitting in the loft overlooking the food prep was ok, and the bartender assured us it was. Great view and good atmosphere . . . but we were out of sight/out of mind. The food was very good, so we may try this again to see if service improves.

This is usually our Go-To place to eat. The patio outside is great as is the inside in the winter.
The food is great - we always get the Grotto Azura salad which is amazing. The pizza selection is limited but all good.
Great restaurant overall.
