Grotta di Fuoco
Inside an unassuming building on Long Beach’s main strip is Chef Andrew Alotti, the Italian cooking mastermind behind Grotta di Fuoco. Though his menu is approachable, each dish is beautifully prepared and plated. All of the homemade pastas are predictably incredible, and there are nightly specials pushing the bar even further. Brick oven pizzas, desserts, and cocktails are also on point. Reclaimed wood, raw steel and concrete furnishings give this below-street-level space an industrial feel, and the giant wood burning oven by the bar is positioned so diners can see their food being prepared.
