Located in the hotel's Palm Court garden, Il Grottino is a natural cave that has served as part of the fifteenth-century Monastery of the Spanish Steps, a World War II air raid shelter, and a 1950s pub before being fashioned into a wine cellar in the 1990s by present owner, President and Managing Director Roberto E. Wirth.
