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.
This restaurant is now one of my favorite restaurants. It has great atmosphere and the food is delicious.
Secret hideaway, amazing food, great staff, great evening. We will definitely be back!
As always the food was amazing and Walter was phenomenally amazing!
My friend came to visit from London and loved it. He has traveled all over the world and he was impressed by the decor and service of this place. In fact he wants to rebook a reservation for today.
Wonderful as always. We sat by the bar, which was a little loudWe than . But otherwise everything as perfect.
Aways great and this time was no exception! The food ...specially the truffle risotto was amazing and the service as well!
As always, we had an excellent dining experience at La Grotta. We’ve been coming for years to celebrate both special and everyday occasions. The service is always top notch!!
Nice overall dining experience. The Tiramisu was the best I have had in a very long time! Great menu options, great service, and a quiet cozy dining experience for date nights, business or special occasions!
Looooove La Grotta!!!

This best Italian restaurant in Atlanta. I strongly reccomend that you use this restaurant for any occasion as you will not disappointed the service is impecable and the room is beautiful
Always exceptional, and always a required stop on visits to Atlanta!
Fabulous in every meaning of the word, food, wine service you name it. We were regulars at the other LaGrotta at perimeter mall, this , the original one, is better. Reservations are a must.
What a gem! Whether in NYC, Miami, Los Angeles or Vegas...La Grotta is the best Italian. Very fresh ingredients. Skillfully prepared and presented. The service is one of the most professional I’ve experienced. True pros! Beautiful interior and outside patio dining as well. I can’t say enough. I took my wife and parents here for her birthday. Everyone was extremely impressed. One last thing...for what you get in terms of food and service, this place is a bargain!
First time at LaGrotta. It was highly recommended by friends and we loved it! Excellent service, outstanding food and nice patio seating. We are planning another evening back beginning of November. Special thanks to everyone who went out of their way to make our experience wonderful.
Once we were seated the event was wonderful. Great ambiance. Absolutely outstanding wait staff. Asked for and received variances from the menu to accommodate food interests. Whenever I am in Buckhead again this will be my first choice for Italian food.
Outstanding restaurant and service. Celebrated friends birthday and it was my first time....it is her favorite restaurant. Wait staff outstanding and food excellent...we can't wait to return
Awesome- as usual.
Amazing place. great food, great people! A total 10!
Unchanging excellence. We had not gone to La Grotta in 15 years, but it was as if it was yesterday. It was excellent then, and excellent now. The perfect combination of warmth, service, flawlessly executed. From the moment you arrive and are greeted at the door you are cared for but never rushed or pressured.
Have been dining here for years - wonderful food and service. We will be back!
LOVE this place. The first time I had gone here, I was taken by a friend whose grandparents used to frequent the restaurant for date nights. I figured they must be doing something right to be open for 40 years! I have lived less than 2 miles away for 10 years and had no idea it was even there. Tucked away in a dated condo building, I always feel like I'm party of a secret, exclusive club when I go. Everything is always amazing from the food to the ambiance to the tenured servers (most of whom have worked there since I was a toddler). Besides the delicious menu offerings, they will also offer to cook you anything off-menu that you may want. Of course my husband had to test this by ordering carbonara -which, of course, was also amazing. Lastly, don't miss the extensive wine list. They have some great Italian offerings across many price points! Best little hidden gem in Atlanta!
Great authentic Italian, nice atmosphere, always excellent service!
Wonderful as slways
Second time I’ve eaten here. Live in NY
What a wonderful place from the ambiance , staff , Food and chef!!!
My favorite Italian Restaurant !!!
Did you ever play the telephone game? You know how messages are lost in translation as they are passed down the line. We had 4 different people service our table. Seemed extreme. With nobody accountable it makes it easy for mistakes and bad service to slip by. Food was good.
While everything was great, I do not recommend a side-by side sitting table if on a date. Sitting across from your date is far better for conversation.
Food was great. Service was good. Best waiters in the business, but lead waiter did not bring his "A" game for us and I was a touch disappointed. And it was loud as Hell in there.
Best restaurant in atlanta ! Excellent service and the food is amazing . Highly recommended for any occasion.
You would never know that such a gem could exist in such a dump of a building. I can't wait to go back. Service was excellent. Tiramasu was to die for. I will never eat it anywhere else ever. Wonderful wine list.
what a pleasant evening! it had been over 20 years since we had dined here. While back in town my wife thought it would be cool to have dinner there again. We just happened to be there the night after their 40th anniversary of the restaurant. There was still a buzz in the air regarding the night before. The service was great and the food was delicious. Maybe it will not be over 20 years before we return to La Grotta.
La Grotta is remarkably consistent. Love the old school classic vibe. Service is always spot on - nowhere in atlanta delivers drinks faster than this place. Food is very consistent if not outstanding (but very good). Love the location - very convenient. One of my favorite spots in the city.
