Overpriced, and the food doesn't represent any semblance of quality. Portion size was extremely disappointing(no sides or anything, had to order pasta seperately for more money), and I don't think the Grotto would be acceptable for an Italian restuarant if it was in Ohio. No need to waste your time when there are much better restaurants in the area. Waitress had an attitude the entire night. First time in my life I was forced to tip less than 10% b/c she was so bad.
I'm a pretty understanding individual. Everybody has a bad night, but THE WORST part about it was that they don't even try. They don't care about how they run their business...they just want your money. They'll give you the cheapest ingredients, the smallest portions, yet somehow charge $16 bucks per plate with no sides and expect nobody to notice. I actually wouldn't mind small portions if the food was actually good, but the entire experience was poor.
At the very least...an acceptable dining experience.
