Grotto Pizza and its "legendary" taste have been an institution in Delaware and Pennsylvania since 1960. Starting out as a take-out pizza stand in Rehoboth Beach, Grotto Pizza has grown in size a great deal since then. We now operate a total of 19 restaurants in Delaware and Pennsylvania and offer employment to over 1,000 people.

Although we have experienced tremendous growth in size and numbers, Grotto Pizza has dedicated itself to providing the same service and quality that has made our pizza so famous. The two family members who worked long and hard developing the Grotto Pizza recipe, which produces our pizzas' unique flavor and freshness, fully believe that the pizza everyone enjoyed in the beginning is the same great tasting pizza you'll enjoy today!
