    I was looking g forward to authentic Italian and instead it was very americanized. The pasta was drenched in butter and the pasta was like leather. I ordered the vegetable ravioili. Wouldn't recommend it.

    reservations - Saturday night 6:45pm, arrived 6:40pm and was shown to the table. The hostess explain our waiter would be right with us. 7pm a person came over and said just checking to make sure you had oil on the table. 7:05 a gentleman came to our table and asked "have you ordered yet?" we replied no but we were ready his reply was I will need to move you. This has happened to me in the past however the host explained why he was making the request and he would also like to offer us a drink or appetizer on the house. We decided it best if we leave. I probably would have stayed if I had already ordered a drink but the only waiter we saw was the waiter for the next table over.

    Thanks Pasquale and staff for a very nice experience. Service got off to a slow start but it didn't seem to be a recurring problem. I think it was just crossed lines between two servers. Food was delicious and the tiramisu was absolutely delicious...and HUGE. We will definitely go back

    La Casa has quickly become one of my favorite Italian eateries in the Atlanta area. The restaurant itself is charming, cozy and comfortable. The service is attentive, without hovering over you every moment. And the authentic Italian dishes are always fresh and tasty. My favorites include the linguine and clams, the pappardelle with shrimp, clams, scallops and squid (mare chiaro) and the lobster ravioli. My wife lives the frilled salmon with seafood risotto. Good wine list and deserts. Always a great meal, reasonably priced in a great environment!

    What a delightful restaurant!!! The interior is very cozy, and there is also heated outdoor seating. The food and service were excellent. I had the arancini for appetizer as I hadn't had them since my grandmother used to make them years ago. For the main course I had the linguine with little neck clams and, my favorite, cannoli for dessert. Everything was delicious. We were a party of six, and everyone enjoyed their food. Would definitely go back.

    We had our first dining experience at La Casa and will return. We sat outside and enjoyed an excellent meal. The staff was friendly, professional and attentive. The food was well prepared and presented and tasted delicious. The menu had enough tasty options that I could go back a dozen times and never feel the need to order the same thing twice...but I'd want to have exactly what I ordered it was so tasty! Reasonable price and easily accessible location.

    I love this restaurant! They make the bread & pasta on site. I had the Radiatoria. It comes with tomatoes but I don't like them so they substituted artichokes. Divine, divine, divine! Food was fresh, tasteful & downright delicious. Wait staff was friendly, attentive and helpful. Getting to location is a little tricky but worth the visit. Will definitely be back & have told everyone about it.

    The food was excellent. Had been there once before about a year ago and it was good, good enough to come back. This time, it was excellent enough to come back a lot sooner. Wine list is not large but thoughtful, no Kendall Jackson here. Housed in an old bungalow in downtown Alph, a tad hard to find but worth it. Try it!

  • Help wanted sign said it all

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    I noticed the sign out front as we were leaving, "Hiring Experienced Servers." The wait staff was sincerely trying their best to keep up with the many patrons in the restaurant on a Saturday night, but lack of experience showed. They got my husband's cocktail order wrong then returned with a watered-down version of the right cocktail and brought me the wrong entree. As soon as it was placed before me I noted it was wrong, and he whisked it away explaining the two entrees were side by side on the counter. Another server replaced utensils after we finished an appetizer; much appreciated but he placed them upside down! We were amused but probably won't go back until the help-wanted sign is gone.

    The owner always greets the guests. Provides excellent choice of seating. Ambiance great. Food choices are favorites of anyone who loves Italian, my favorite is eggplant parmesan. La Casa never disappoints! For a little piece of Italy in the heart of Alpharetta, La Casa Italian Grill is the place.

    As a former restaurateur, and picky foodie, I continue to come back to La Casa time after time. The service can be spotty at times, and it's obvious that most of the staff is new. But they try, and I appreciate that. The food is the real reason we keep coming back. It's a great blend of quality and value. The Burrata is consistantly good, as are the brick oven pizzas, 2 things that are appreciated by this native New Yorker! The owner Pasquale is always at the front door, greeting diners, filling water glasses and shaking hands. It's great to see an owner who is personable and not afraid to get down and help. Thank you for another great experience. We'll be back!

    La Casa is a pleasant, homey place that we have visted several times and always been happy. This visit showed some unevenness -- my salad was watery and my eggplant parmesan just did not have much flavor -- though my wife's pizza was really, really good. One less than satisfying experience won't keep us from returning, but it was a disappointment we hadn't expected.

  • Our third time not a charm
    LesismoreVIP
    Dined on 7/19/2014
    This was our third visit to La Casa, after very good experiences the first two times. The food was good, as in the previous visits, but the already pricey wine list has gotten more so, with notable increases and no lower-cost options, as in the past. The dinner salad was uninspired, and the bread was not as good as in the past. The coffee was a huge disappointment (very weak), and I sent it back. The service was amateurish, and the server tried to take my salad three times while I was still eating it, while chewing, with fork in hand. We were with friends who were celebrating their anniversary, which they told the waiter. No complimentary dessert to share. I will not return anytime soon. All in all not a fun night.

    Read such great reviews that I decided to take my best friend & our husbands there for her birthday. Upon entering the restaurant we were very hopeful, as it's very cute and rustic in an older house. We were set at a table that had an A/C vent from the floor blowing straight up at me. When asked about it the waiter gave me a drink menu to put over it instead of moving tables. I must say that our waiter was very good & attentive. I ordered the caprese salad & gnocchi w/red sauce & basil, & my husband ordered la casa salad & gnocchi with chicken. The mozz in my caprese was clearly low quality as it was too soft & watery, and the gnocchi was also a letdown for both of us as the texture was quite off and our sauces were not good. Dessert same:(

    We had our last 'girls night out' dinner at La Casa Italian Grill. The restaurant is located in a renovated old house 1 block off of Main Street in Alpharetta. The house is very quaint and nicely refinished. We enjoyed all of the food that we ordered including a burrata salad, tortellini a la vodka, mussels and the fish of the day which was trout. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service and the ambiance and agreed we would return soon!
