UPDATED MAY 19, 2021



As the CDC has released new relaxed mask guidelines, New York State also has adopted the new guidelines.  In light of this, Grotto will follow this and make masks be optional for vaccinated customers as of May 19, 2021.  We ask that our customers follow this as we will not be monitoring or checking for proof of vaccination.  Please be honest for the sake of the well-being of others as well as yourself.



If you wish to continue to wear a mask, Grotto supports the decisions of each and every one of its customers as long as it complies with federal and local regulations.  If you do not feel comfortable at this point with our policy, or if you prefer – outdoor dining is always available (weather permitting) –and all of our regular menus are available for take-out, including our “family style” Grotto-to-Go specials.



Out of abundance for caution and for the health and safety of our staff, Grotto employees will continue to wear face coverings until further notice.  We appreciate your patience, loyalty, and business as we continue to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic together.  From the bottoms of our hearts, THANK YOU for understanding and look forward to seeing and serving you all a delicious meal in the very near future.  As always, Grotto remains committed to continuing to serve the Central New York area the finest in farm-to-table cuisine, best wine selections, and decadent deserts in a warm, friendly, and safe atmosphere.
