Serving the finest in Northern & Regional Italian Cuisine, La Grotta offers old world charm and friendly, first class service and is located in the heart of Buckhead. A local favorite since 1978, La Grotta has received Best of Atlanta Award from Atlanta magazine since the mid 1980’s, prestigious DiRONA and AAA Four Diamond Awards since the early 90's.


La Grotta is tucked away in the heart of the Buckhead residential district and overlooks the lush gardens of the condo courtyard in which it is located. La Grotta literally means "the cave" in Italian and was named such for its cavernous and warm setting. The La Grotta staff is also well known and regarded for its vast knowledge of its customers, the food, diverse knowledge of languages (our staff speaks Italian, Spanish, French & German) and attention to detail. The menu specializes in Northern Italian cuisine with seasonal changes to reflect freshness of ingredients with a focus on locally grown produce.

I think that there is not a restaurant with better food and service. It's my favorite place to go. It fills up so fast it's very important to make a reservation. The food is consistently excellent and they'll modify a dish if it has some unwanted ingredient. GREAT! GREAT! GREAT!

Great atmosphere. Excellent food, one of the best. We went there as our Valentines Day dinner. We are now going to visit more often. It was a unique experience.

We are always treated like family. Most people know that the best meals are with family. Great service along with authentic food makes this one of our favorite goto places for romantic getaways.

A return to an old favorite and we left wondering why we don’t come more often!
Food, service, atmosphere.....LaGrotta has it all. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

The menu, wine list, decor and service recreates the top of the line Italian restaurant experience from 30 years ago. The food is excellent and well-sauced and cooked perfectly. That's why it's our choice for very special occasions like Valentine's Day and why you always need a reservation. And they have outdoor seating.
