My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. The owner and waitress were both wonderful. The food was great, very cheesy and authentic. I make a mean lasagna and must say there’s was very good. We will definitively be back!

The service was very slow and initially, not very friendly. The second server tried to make up for the delay.
The flavor of both pasta dishes were tasty, but the both pasta, which were different, were cold.

The staff was lovely. The ambiance was great, very cute. The food was so-so. My pasta was an excellent texture, but the veal bolognese sauce was way too tomato based and had a lot of sugar in it. My partner had the same issue with the marinara being too sweet. The arancini was a brave combo but didn't really work.

So they didn't do anything wrong per se, we just didn't care for the food.

We always enjoy LaCasa. The food is excellent and service is great. Tonight, we went with family that are very particular about food, especially Italian food, since they are both excellent cooks. They thoroughly enjoyed the meal, service, and the owner’s attention. He always is so welcoming and makes you feel at home.

Great local Italian restaurant delivering solid food and service at reasonable prices. Four of us enjoyed adult size Gin Tonics, a reasonable bottle of Pinot Nior, Clams, Mussels, Bread, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Spaghetti Aglio e Olio, Stuffed Shells and Veal Piccata. We all split a traditional cream brulee. Everyone was very happy with their meals and enjoyed the night very much. Our waitress Marianna seemed a bit harried and we felt a little rushed (however we did arrive at 8 pm and the place was fairly empty when we left before 10). Service was excellent and we were never found waiting for Marianna or a bus boy. Will be returning soon.

Our family of four decided to try this place for my birthday and so glad we did! From the appetizer, salad & entree, it was delicious old fashioned Italian food. Free home made cannoli for desert - a nice touch. Generous portions & great service! We’ll be back for sure! Loved it!!

It was ok. Not horrible. Not great. I got the spaghetti squash and it was so watery it was like soup. This dish is better prepared at Village Tavern and even Ruby Tuesday. It was our first time so I would give it one more try with a different meal to see if it’s better. The bread was delicious. We were in a small room and it was super loud that I couldn’t wait to leave. Again maybe it was just the people behind us and not the norm.

La Casa is a little piece of Italy in Alpharetta! We loved the place and the owner! The owner came out and said Happy 30th Birthday to my boyfriend and made sure we enjoyed our meal. The food was authentic and the service was the best we have ever had! Thank you La Casa for making Patrick’s birthday memorable!

This was our first time visiting this restaurant. We arrived with 6:00 pm reservation on Father's Day. We were quickly seated, but were rushed immediately by the owner, stating that the kitchen closed at 6:00 pm, so they could celebrate Father's Day. When we questioned why a 6:00 pm reservation was accepted, he quickly dismissed us and rushed our ordering process. While were were there (5) more reservations showed, one left after they too were rushed and (8) other patrons were turned away with the same excuse that they closed at 6:00 pm.

The food was not anything special and was not plated well. Dessert was not impressive, so we went to Dairy Queen for desert and honestly, this was a better choice. Salad or Appetizers were not ordered, since we immediately felt like we were a major inconvenience for making a Father's Day Reservation at 6:00 pm for a party of (5). We visited this restaurant because it was highly recommended by a close friend, but we will not be going back or recommending this location to anyone. If the owner cannot offer good service, I doubt that his staff would do any better.

I grew up in the north and being 100% Italian I've spent a lot of time in good Italian restaurants. The one thing I missed moving to the south was having that atmosphere along with good food that you find everywhere in NY and Boston. La Casa Italian Grill is amazing! Great service, great atmosphere and excellent food. Loved it and will be back!

Very pleasant. A bit noisy but that was mostly because of a very loud table of diners (all too common now; too many people think everyone wants to hear them; apparently makes them feel important)

First time at La Casa Italian Grill. Wife (Deb) noticed on an earlier trip to Alpharetta that day.
We looked up the menu and decided to try it. Glad we did!

We arrived early and decided to have a drink at the bar. Met Pasquale (owner) and he was very
accommodating and fun! Spoke with us several times during the evening.

Food (especially my Lobster pasta!) was excellent and the service was great (Silvia C)! We will
definitely be back. Great find! Rick Turner

Overall. Loved it.
Food was great except one of our meals—veal was tough.
Gave us a whole new meal to take home.
Had Pino Grigio wine which was good but never got the name.
Would definitely go back.

My husband and I dined here for our anniversary. Glasses of wine were a bit pricey. Both roasted beet salad and caesar salads were excellent. My chicken parm was slighty burnt. The angel hair pasta was like mush. His tagliatelli pasta with meat sauce was lacking in the ragu sauce, dry, undercooked and quite heavy. Desssert of cannolis were fiiled with overly sweet cream lacking in chocolate chips. Cannoli shells were crisp and fresh. Room was attractive, decorated with many framed italian tile frescos. Service was pleasant and attentive. There was nothing comped for our anniversary, neither wine nor dessert. There are so many other really good Italian restaurants to choose from, unless you are in the downtown Alpharetta area, I wouldn't rush back.

We went here for Mother's Day. The service that we received from our waitress was excellent. We went there for a leisurely meal and was not disappointed. Because we were not rushed we could sit, talk, and eat our leisure. Would like to come back and try some of the other items on the menu.
