A word from La Grotta Ravinia
At La Grotta Ravinia, the clientele dine in a casual yet gracious atmosphere. The décor highlights an open kitchen and a surrounding complete with waterfalls and lush gardens. This rustic background creates a setting that encompasses the outdoors and is especially picturesque.
Our primary focus is Northern Italian and regional cuisine with some global influences. Our dishes are inspired by the very old traditional family recipes yet are innovative enough to meet today's sophisticated expectations. We continually update our menus because we are dedicated to providing Atlanta's most interesting Italian cuisine.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was quire good. A little slow to get to the table considering there was an average size crowd. We had about 3 different people waiting on us and asking the same thing about our drinks and orders....kinda weird. Then a lot of time between checking in with us. Could have used another drink and never asked. Just seemed a little scattered. But did enjoy the food. atmosphere quiet and easy to talk,"

  • "Small portions for an Italian restaurant. Wait staff was a little pushy."

  • "My husband and I dined at La Grotta several years ago and had a great experience. We decided to celebrate both of our birthdays there this year and are so pleased with our choice. The restaurant has done some very nice updating and the atmosphere was incredibly pleasant. There was a trio playing and the music was perfect. The entire meal experience...food, service, atmosphere...created a wonderful celebration. We have made the decision to visit more often and wonder why we waited so long to return."

  • " This was located in a very nice section of the perimeter center. The menu had lots of interesting choices but I went with two specials ... The tomato garlic and eggplant soup was Amazing. For dinner the trio of veal, beef medallion and shrimp was delicious. To too it off the combo of traditional cappuccino and tiramisu was awesome. Very attentive waiters, would recommend to anyone."

  • "No matter how often we dine at different restaurants, through the years La Grotta at Ravinia remains our favorite. The food is always perfect, the ambiance is the best and the service is attentive but not smothering. We have had many dinners here: family gatherings, retirement parties, reunions and several holiday and birthday dinners. The food is exquisitely prepared with top quality fresh ingredients and portions that are reasonable yet very filling."

  • "This place was amazing! My significant other and I have been rekindling our love for each other and this place truly set the tone. From the hostess Jasmine (who as great) to our servers to the food - our dining experience was fantastic and the night ended magically. We will certainly return!!"

  • "I was looking for a special place to take my wife to celebrate the 37th "anniversary" of the day we met. La Grotta Ravinia proved to be the perfect choice. The setting is beautiful and the management honored my request for a table in a quiet area of the restaurant with a nice view. We enjoyed the food and the service was very attentive."

  • "LaGrotta is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Atlanta, a gem that I don't think most people know exists as it is within a hotel. I've been there many times and last week was typical of the great service and delicious food for which LaGrotta is known. The view is fantastic if one is seated near the vast expanse of glass."

  • "The menu and the service is top notch, and I loved having the ability to dance between courses since they have special Saturday nights with live music. Very romantic. Will definitely come back."

  • "Service was good. We expected more. Our Server Assistant was more on it and had a better personality than the Server. No spiel. Food was ok. The highlight was the view and over all ambience. Nothing like the experience of the other La Grotta. Bummer."

    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food was fresh, and the Italian pasta dishes were authentic. The service however was lacking. When we arrived the waiter for our table asked us if we would like round of "mimosas". We did not realize that the mimosas were $8 each...quite pricey for a $40 per person buffet until we received our bill. We were never asked if we would like soft drinks or tea, and had to ask to have our water glasses refilled.The only other time that the waiter came to our table of 3 was to ask us if we wanted another round of Mimosas!! The waiter put the check on the table before we had our desserts which were yummy, and did not even ask us if we wanted coffee with our desserts. Then the manager came over and asked us why the $10 tip was so small!"

  • "My husband and I found this restaurant 15 years when we moved to Atlanta. It has been one of my favorites ever since. Took my family there for the first time last week and it was outstanding as usual: great food, great service, beautiful setting. Would recommend to anyone."

  • "For a quiet dinner with excellent food, La Grotta is always a winner. The view of the gardens of the Ravinia Hotel add to the ambience. Saturday evenings there is a "quiet" band with dancing. The prices are in line with the cuisine and they offer a wide variety of choices. Been going to this restaurant for 25 years."

  • "Brought a group of 8 with me for their 3 PC dinner band and dancing, but surprised to find out the band only plays on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month instead of every Sat night. Still enjoyed dinner but noticed not as many diners without the music."

  • "It has been well over 10 years since I have eaten at this location,but have often gone to the Buckhead location. Despite being in a hotel, once in the restaurant, it was quite pleasurable. Good Italian food, relatively quiet and great setting. While mostly couples in there, it was very appropriate for our business dinner. Glad I came back and it will be just a couple months, not 10 years, before I return."

  • "This restaurant is in a beautiful hotel with a lovely setting which is about the best that can be said. The food was sub par and certainly not worth what was charged. The staff was friendly and accommodating, but quite slow. There were only about 10 people in the restaurant at 8:00 PM on a Friday night. That should have been an indication to me. It took 20 minutes for a bowl of soup to arrive at our table. I had the spaghettini which was bland and unsalted. My friend had the chicken fettuccine. She said the chicken was similar to the type you get pre-packaged to put on salads. We had crème brûlée and tiramisu for dessert, the best parts of our meal. All in all, I would not go back. Warning: parking during a wedding there is a nightmare!"

  • "The waiter took forever to take our order and didnt seem happy to have us as customers. The food was bland. To make matters worse I was overcharge; $691for a $69 bill, then the manager had the audacity to tell me to call them once the money is refunded to my account ( by the way may take up to 7 days) to call and pay over the phone for our meal."

  • "The service is phenomenal, the staff treats you with respect and they make you feel welcome and are delighted that you chose their restaurant to eat at. The food is worth every penny, down right the best Italian food I have ever had, rich, moist and flavorful, there are not enough adjectives to describe the quality and freshness of the food."
