“We ordered a few dozen pizza pies as well as a ton of choc chip cookies from here for an office lunch and everything came out perfect. The food arrived quickly and all the pizzas were still hot, as were the cookies. We ordered a large variety of pies and every single one was delicious.They have a great cheese to sauce ratio and the dough had the right amount of crunch and thinness and on top of that all the slices had a generous amount of toppings on them.
The one thing that blew my mind was the Bacon Jalapeno slices. The bacon was crisp and the jalapenos were not too spicy, and the slice overall was just amazing.
Overall great pizza and excellent customer services. Will be back!”

“I’m SO glad I didn’t listen to the reviewer who condemned their Zeppoles. I’ve never had a Zeppole before so can’t comment on authenticity or any of that but whatever I had in my mouth was bloody amazing! Plus you get a huge bag of them! I also tried their Tuna Salad (was a bit worried about ordering tuna at a pizza place) but woah was that good – and their Chicken Vodka Roll which is my staple is always delicious. Will be trying out more of their salads in the future and will definitely be getting me some Zeppolis with every meal”

“My bf and I were staying at the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park when I decided that spaghetti sounded good. We found this place (Grotto Pizza) via Yelp and walked over. I wasn’t expecting it to be underground but we went in and was greeted by a nice man. It wasn’t very busy on a Tuesday evening. We placed our order and sat in a cute and quaint upstairs dining area while we waited. The food came out and we took it back to the hotel. It was hot and everything was tasty, especially the garlic rolls that had a hint of spice! Lots of food on the menu, pretty decent prices.”

“There are so many positive things I can say about the Grotto Restaurant and their food.
Our company has loved the Grotto’s pizza for over 8 years now, it’s incredible! The pizza is delivered hot; fast and with lots of flavor and just the right amount of sauce with its delicious crispy on the edges crust. Our favorites are the chicken, sausage, and pepperoni we recently tested out the white cheese and we were not disappointed.
The buffalo shrimp is one of our office favorite side dishes, if you’re not quick to grab a few you’re sure to miss out. The buffalo wings also go very well with the pizza and the guys here love them!
Aside from the awesome pizza we love the pasta dishes and entrees. The penne vodka is a smash here in the office along with the chicken Parm and stuffed shells.
The Caesar salad or Grotto’s tossed salad on the side with your choice of dressing….Delicious!
What is a delicious meal without some dessert…where in New York can you have quickly delivered warm, straight out the oven to die for chocolate chip cookies (among other favorites) well The Grotto has the best cookies around this neighborhood, hands down!!
I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for some great food at amazing prices!
Last but not least and very important to us, the owner is a sweetheart and will go out of his way to make sure you enjoy everything and are happy and satisfied.”

“The Grotto Pizzeria and Ristorante has become CRUNCH 90 John Street’s destination for corporate events, club parties and employee gatherings. The food is incredible but also healthy and affordable. They always go above and beyond to work within our budget and are happy to accommodate any type of food request we make. CRUNCH JOHN STREET goes no where but the Grotto for their after workout meals.”

“Fast, friendly and professional describes Grotto. I have patronized Grotto for 3+ years and they have been nothing but consistent with the food and the quality of service. The staff is always eager to help with any and all events.”

“With the complete homogenization of the downtown food scene, its always comforting to know that Grotto is there with all my favorites, friendly faces, and consistent quality. Grotto never misses and is always a hit for meetings and corporate events.”
