Grabbing a Slice of Delaware at Grotto Pizza
The “legendary taste” has been a part of Delaware’s pizza-scape from Wilmington to the beaches for more than 50 years, with no signs of slowing down.
It stands alone alongside Del. 1, calling to passing drivers who have known about Grotto Pizza since they were kids. They go in search of Grotto’s self-described “legendary taste,” created in part by the unique blend of three cheeses swirled on the face of every pie, and memories of summers at the beach. By now, everyone knows the story of owner Dominick Pulieri handing out slices as people passed the original store on the Rehoboth Boardwalk in 1960, back when no one in the area knew what pizza was. Now there are 18 locations in the state, and they are full-service restaurants that serve much more than pizza, though nothing quite as much as pizza. After more than 50 years of wooing loyal patrons, those patrons have turned Grotto pizza from a summer memory into a truly iconic local food. 102 Silicato Way, Milford, 725-5111, grottopizza.com
