Blue Grotto Brookside



In 2008 the Blue Grotto opened a fun, neighborhood pizza and wine bar in the Brookside area with our family and friends. Having an opportunity to grow, we experienced great memories of wine by the fire pits and family gatherings that went all night. We quickly learned that what our city needed was a place that we could go to relax and eat a meal that was casual but didn't lack the elegance of passionate service.

Walking into the Blue Grotto one will find a friendly smile behind the bar. The kids watching our chef in the open kitchen preparing your meal. Our service staff excited about our great happy hour and dinner specials. “Our restaurant is romantic and thoughtfully designed. We truly look forward to having you.” Fintan & Ann Molloy

"The wine list is perfect...I cannot wait to go back!"


The best service I have had at a restaurant in a long time. The owner and our waitress were just simply amazing. Everything about this place is welcoming from the service to the decor! I cannot wait to go back!

Blue Grotto has quickly become one of my favorite places to dine with its great atmosphere, cool architecture (I love sitting upstairs and watching the chefs prepare the food in the kitchen below) and excellent food.

I will state, like I always do, it is about THE FOOD first. If your palette sweet spot consists of chewing bones and slurping pizzas loaded with junk and sauced to death, you shouldn't really come here. If you are some artsy fartsy eater and everything needs to be "creative" to be good, why do you stay home and cook your own art?
This place is making a true Neapolitan pizza. Very little sauce and toppings... but just enough to get a taste in each bite. I had the quattro formaggio and it was very well executed. I had a bite of some cajun pizza concoction and it tasted great. In short, this is not Papa Junk or Domi"noway."
The wine list is perfect. One page. Virtually everything available by the glass. Other places should take notes on this.
