    The food and service was nothing short of outstanding. Would highly recommend if you want fresh homemade pasta, everything we tried was delicious including the drinks. The server was amazing and personable as well!

    Start to finished was excellent. Server was very good and attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We had the Calamari and oysters. The oysters were delicious but, weren’t shucked properly. Lots of pieces of shell. The lobster ravioli and gnocchi were the best we’ve had in a restaurant. Great sorbets and desserts. Will go back again!

    Very disappointing. Service was brusque even though the restaurant was 1/3 full. No attention to detail. Food was average at best.la Grotta seems to have lost its quality. .

    Every time we go to La Grotta we are thrilled. The food is fabulous, the service attentive without being overbearing, the parking is super convenient, and they get you out in time for a show without ever feeling rushed. Highly, highly recommend. Our evening was completely on point in every way. Kudos to the chef! We are now planning our next visit ☺️
