This place is amazing. Always personable. Always knowledgeable. Always careful. Their food is bomb, especially baked goods. Haven’t got my hands on a cannoli yet but my day will come!!!

Most things on the menu can be made gluten free! We had chicken fingers and a Philly cheesesteak, and ordered some cookies and cannolis to go. The food was okay, the service was terrible, but I’m giving it 4 stars because sometimes just seeing a ton of gluten free options is exciting, and honestly I would go back again to try some other items.

We have been customers for years, but after their recent move, the customer service has taken a nosedive. They tried to get us to pay in person after ordering and paying online. After our order was missing an item, I tried calling, leaving a voicemail, Facebook message, and Facebook comment, and they ignored me and deleted my request for assistance. What a shame after the hit restaurants have taken.

I’ve been going to grandmas for years, they’re desserts are great and there’s so many options. The owner and his family are so nice and friendly and also care a lot about their celiac customers. I also love being able to eat fried foods which is impossible basically anywhere else

We eat here all of the time! I’m celiac and extremely sensitive to cross contamination and have never had a bad experience. Their bread is decent and fluffy, which is refreshing. Everything they offer on their menu is either gluten free or can be modified. Their baked goods are a bit dry (to be fair, italian cookies tend to be on the dryer side and I’ve never been a big fan). Every baked good they offer is gluten free. You can even buy their flour mix. I believe the only gluten items on their menu is regular pizza, hoagie rolls, and breading on various dishes. It feels like gluten free is the default here, which is majorly refreshing, especially in this area. Everything is tasty and the customer service is excellent. They’re a family owned business. This place and their gf offerings impress.

Updated review: As far as I know, I have not had ill effects from eating here; however, I will not be back. I was there the other day and super excited to get gf treats after eating. I watched my waitress grab someone else's food with bare hands (bread loaves, cookies, etc.). The other customer also asked to double check if it was all gf and the waitress said it is. The waitress then went to put gloves on for my desserts, while touching the outsides of the gloves anyway... I said I was too full and changed my mind. The owner was standing right behind her as she did this and I was surprised the other customer and the owner said nothing.

Previous review: This place had great mozzarella sticks, chicken parm, and a whole bunch of delicious desserts!

OMG!!! THE FOOD WAS SO GOOD!!!! My husband ordered a regular pizza (said it tasted even BETTER on the second day) and I got linguine in clam sauce. I haven't had it in YEARS and thanks to Grandma's Grotto...I had no pains. And the desserts (ALL gluten free!)? I came home with almost $10 of goodies! The best thing? The strawberries and cream cupcake. I'm still dreaming about it. Ha! We'll definitely be back soon

Very good. When you walk in they ask if anyone would like a gluten free menu. Good start. Then they bring out GF toasty bread for gf people (with ice cold butter unfortunately). I got the very tasty chicken parm and if you ask they will give you a different sauce on your pasta (so I could try something else). I tasted the GF cannoli whose shell was more of an anise cookie, but it wasn’t bad and the filling was pretty good.

If you love Italian and you are celiac, look no further. They make all the favorites and it's all gluten free. They know what they are doing with zero chances of cross contamination. I love everything but I highly recommend the mozzarella sticks, chicken parm, and raviolis. BYOB and friendly owners. Little $ but it 100% worth it!

Food was delicious and my husband loved it. They get 4 stars for being knowledgeable and having tasty food that was Celiac friendly. I ordered penne with chicken and vodka sauce. The sauce was delicious but resembled Mac n cheese more than vodka sauce. My husband had veal parmesan and said it was probably the best he haf. I'm glad they offer baked goods but they were gritty and hard. Needs work.

Very knowledgable about Celiac Disease! All Gluten free items are made in a separate area of the kitchen, they have designated fryers. All bake goods are gluten free. They make their own gluten free bread, bread crumbs and croutons. They are certified Gluten-free and have many menu options. All gluten free means are served on a square plate, so remember when celebrating with a large party circle plates are not friendly for gluten free. Make sure waitress and waiters know who is gluten free. We had the most delicious gluten free pizza today. Definitely worth the time and drive. Old World Italian being gluten free awareness!
