Was a busy night. Short-staffed meant everything took longer. Had to repeat request for a tea. Music was very nice and food was excellent.

Apatizers were ok. Nothing to write home about. The risotto was salty and served in a pond of sauce rather than being moist. Veal was good.
The tiramisu was good.
We were a party of 5. At such price I expect higher level of cooking.

My experience at La Grotta was fantastic! The ambiance was very laid back and the servers were super friendly. I requested a seat by the window when I made my reservation and they gave me just that! Customer service is very important when it comes to a restaurant and I would like to say they did their very best! Exceptional service and food!!

Food was good not great, a bit overpriced in my opinion and the drinks were served in very small glasses.

If you are expecting la Grotta buckhead type quality, wait it out and get a reservation there. Food was mediocre at best. The chicken parm was ok, but it is hard to mess that up. I sent my entree back. Gnocchi was disgusting and was not traditional gnocchi. It was more like gritty cakes that were burned. Shrimp was overlooked and fishy. Frutti de mare had sandy scallops and sauce was underwhelming. The ambiance is very nice and so was the waiter. Wine list is better at 9 out of 10 other restaurants. We eat out a lot and I would never recommend this place to anyone.

Three out of four entrees were good. One was poor.( the braised beef.) Awful texture. none were outstanding.
Restaurant also refused to substitute pasta for potatoes for our one diner who medically cannot have potatoes.
Waiter, a gentleman from Peru, left us hanging several times during the evening. Not very attentive.
We have dined here many times before and never encountered a problem. This evening was really not great.

The wait staff were all very nice, attentive and quick. We went for an occasion but also to try a new place during Dunwoody Restaurant week. Everything was good but not spectacular. The salmon was the best dish. Would love to see more creativity in their dishes. All pretty basic dishes. Very good wine. Great setting overlooking a natural area and a lovely place to go for a stroll after dinner.

We have lived 3 miles from the restaurant for many years and kept saying we were going to try it. We went to dinner for a 20th anniversary and the setting and the food were outstanding for the price. We will definitely go back.

I hadn't been to this restaurant in at least 20 years (we had moved to Vegas) so was delighted to find that it was still around and the food still really good. I took my boss and a client and we had a nice window view of the bridge and foliage. The restaurant was more quiet than what you get in most restaurants these days which allowed all guests to actually have a conversation. the wait staff was attentive without being annoying and did not rush us at all. The food was delicious and everyone seemed really happy with their appetizers, main courses and desserts. I would definitely go back!

Overall the food and service were excellent . The only glitz was a 30 min wait past our reservation. The matron'd could not explain and did nothing to help us out. Finally the waiter acknowledged and lightened the air with some humor plus free desert.
