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

  • "My boyfriend and I ate here for my birthday. Everyone at the restaurant was 65 years or older (lol) but we enjoyed the ambiance and service from a great wait staff."

  • "The service and the ambience were outstanding BUT the veal was very poor quality."

  • "The food is wonderful. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting. You have the feeling of being outside. What is especially pleasant is being able to have a conversation in a quiet setting and actually hear your table mates."

  • "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."

  • "Our evening at the La Grotta Supper Club was perfectly delightful! We had a real good meal, we danced, we loved the music, we felt welcomed by the entire staff as they greeted us! We will return because it was such a different, wonderful evening!"

  • "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."

  • "Pretty view of a nicely landscaped courtyard from the back of the restaurant. Service was efficient, but not rushed. Delicious food."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Good Italian food and located within or next to the hotel. Romantic and spacious space and they have dancing on weekends along with a live band. The other location in Buckhead is the better location as far as romance and the expertise of the servers, although you have to overlook that you enter through the front door of a condo, which looks like a retirement community."

  • "We had a good meal and we were able to have good discussions; however, it was cold to the point if being uncomfortable in the room."

  • "If you are looking for excellent Italian food, wonderful service and a romantic atmosphere then look no further. One of the best places I have eaten in Atlanta."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Unbelievably, an "authentic" Italian restaurant located in a hotel. The service and attentiveness paralleled the EXCELLENT food, mimicking an olde' world Italian restaurant. The atmosphere, waterfalls and foliage comparable to a tropical rain forest, created a romantic calm and serenity, making a very large restaurant appear quaint and familiar. Yes, I will be going back,,,,again, and again,,, and again."

  • "I expected much more from La Grotta. It seemed that they were understaffed & the 3rd string servers were working. The wait staff was more concerned with setting up the tables around us than taking care of the tables they had at the moment and it wasn't even busy when we were there. The food was unremarkable for the inflated prices. To top off the night, the inept valet lost my car & took 35 minutes to locate it."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had an outstanding family group dinner. The dinner entres were Lamb Chops, Dover Sole, Fish and Veal and they were all top quality. Service was outstanding and the valet parking makes for an easy entry especially on a cold evening!!!"

  • "The food at La Grotta was fantastic! Service was good (not great) - I had to refill my own wine glass a couple of times. I had the veal - great choice! The ambience is nice but the hotel location does detract somewhat. Overall I highly recommend La Grotta in Dunwoody. However, if you had a choice, La Grotta Buckhead is still my favorite of the two. It has first rate service and food."

  • "We have been here many times for many different occasions and it's always wonderful. The food is excellent, service outstanding and the surroundings are beautiful. We were entertained with some lovely music during our dinner which was delightful. Thanks for another memorable experience."

  • "Inside the Crown Plaza Ravinia - you enter into a huge lobby - walk down a winding path through plants and a tumbling waterway. Glass walls allow you to see the beautifully landscaped court yard. Walk around a corner and there is La Grotto. Greeted at the door - they stamp your ticket - free parking. It seems to be a huge place but that is because of the high ceilings and floor to ceiling glass overlooking the court yard. They used three different people to be sure we were served and attended at all times. And the menu - northern Italian - sea food and veal dominate. A pleasant evening - we could talk quietly - and relax. You will not be hurried and they seem to anticipate what you will need. A fine experience."

  • "Highly recommend the smoked salmon flat bread appetizer. Veal was really delicious. They had someone playing music which added nicely to the overall ambiance. Music wasn't too loud, you could still have a conversation without yelling across the table. Service was perfect, very attentive. Overall great dining experience."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "they were very slow in attending to us, just about the slowest and most inattentive waitressing I have ever had. seemed to be a communication issue with some of the help. our waiter was older gentleman and it may have been too much for him to handle as I noticed that he was waiting on several tables. took a long time to get water, bread and quite a while for our food to come out. would not recommend the duck it was kind of pungent. my son took me so I might try it again with my husband, he would like to try the lamb chops."

  • "Speed up your service. Please work on providing refills on the drinks. Will make you more money and keep us happy. Be there so we can see you and request service. If we request to do something on reservation for special occasion, please do or at least acknowledge."

  • "I have never had anything but a great meal here. The seafood risotto is the best I have ever had. The service tends to be slow so don't go if you are in a hurry. But why would you want to hurry through food this good anyway?"
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "We've dined here before but the food this night was even better than on previous visits. We had the veal carciofi which we always order, and then we asked the server if we could have the scallops prepared like the shrimp entree on the menu. It was delicious and even the server commented that it was a great idea. The setting is lovely, looking over a beautiful outdoor garden behind the hotel. Food was delicious and service very attentive, as always."

  • "La Grotta is not a place I can go to every day, but it's good for special occasions. The live music and dancing Saturday night added some fun energy to an otherwise classic Italian dining experience."

  • "The food and service were very good and a nice bonus was the bill was less expensive than we expected."
