Two blocks from the Commons, this little gem is nestled underground. The dinners are beyond reasonable, as a 3-course dinner is $36, and the lunch is a steal, with a large lunch pasta portion running at $14 max. Head down the steps, through the red velvet curtain, to an intimate dining area with mood lighting and a wall of wine bottles amidst walls of brick.http://molltk3.blogspot.com/2012/09/grotto-beacon-hill-chocolates.html
Great Italian food in a cosy decor. Their 3-course menu is great value!
Grotto meaning Cave in Italian true it is in a delightful little cave, but food oh so
good. Started with Pan toasted buffalo mozzarella, Baby spinach, Black olives, Small tomatoes, Capers Very Tasteful. On to Grilled beef tenderloin, Reggiano risotto, Asparagus, Red wine, Risotto so creamy it melts in your mouth. Tenderlion was cooked to perfection. Our Server was spot on great job. Surprisely quiet for a small place.
Fixed price menu a welcome surprise; chef does a great job Tiny but awesome
The tiny, romantic dining room has a nice local feel but hides a terrific culinary surprise. The garlic soup is insanely good, the salads carefully nuanced layers of flavor. Neither traditional or over-edgy, the chef focuses on bringing out the flavor of the ingredients and then layering them together. The scallops were marvelous, as was the crab ravioli. A $34 prix fixe menu with a dozen choices for each course, with too much food to finish.
