Dino’s Grotto is No More

After 14 years in two locations, we have closed permanently! Thanks for all the wonderful memories.

While I can guarantee that there will never be another Dino restaurant, there will continue to be Dino adventures from curated progressive dinners, cooking classes in-home private chef events, possibly pop-ups, a cookbook, food & wine trips to Italy and more.  So get on our mailing list, follow us on twitter @dinoinshaw and we will stay in touch!


  • My wife and I had a terrific dinner at Dino’s last night. We split the crab cakes and Porchetta (pork shoulder). Both were excellent. We also took advantage of the Monday-night wine special and had a fabulous bottle of nero d’avola.

    MS dined at the Grotto 4/29 using Resy

  • Always love getting dinner and beer @DinoInShaw. So good


  • The Virginia skirt steak, succulent from its marinade of olive oil and rosemary, is accompanied by a racy anchovy salsa verde.
