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.

Everything you can ask for a restaurant is in La Grotta!
We had a great experience. The food was phenomenal and the service by Billy our waiter was excellent. Highly recommended
We had cause for an impromptu family celebration, but wanted to feel safe outside and socially distant. The lovely courtyard at La Grotta was perfect for us. The wait staff was attentive and charming. Thank goodness La Grotta is still here, withstanding the test of time.
THE BEST food, great service, beautiful ambiance, and our favorite dinner we have had all year! La Grotta is outstanding on all fronts!!!
Fine food and excellent service in a delightful ambience.
Once again the food was excellent. Three of us ordered a dish not even on the menu and it was cooked perfectly. They chefs and staff happily accommodated our off menu request. We can't wait to make reservations and come back soon.
Our family had a wonderful service and experience!
Wonderful experience. Can't wait to go back. Amazing food and amazing service.
This is our second time dining at La Grotta and the experience never disappoints! The food is superb, the wine list is extensive, and the service is unparalleled! We’ve had Juliano and Danny as our servers and they are true gems!
This was my first experience at La Grotta after many recommendations. The food was phenomenal and the staff was extremely friendly. It took almost 30 minutes past our reserved time to be seated because COVID related reduced capacity.
Delicious meal great service! One of our most favorite places to eat! Treated like family.
La Grotta never disappoints. The service and food was outstanding. The best mussels and lamb chops in the city. My only complaint was that were were seated next to a very loud party of four outside.
The experience and food were great. Billy was a great waiter and made sure all of our needs were taken care of.
We’ll be back!
Excellent food and service!!!
Superb experienced staff
This restaurant has been around for over 30 years, and there is a reason for that. Simply put; the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta.
Just was not as good as it has always been
We enjoyed a wonderful meal on the patio. Both the service and food were excellent. La Grotta remains one the best values in Atlanta, if not the very best.
I was extremely happy with my service, food, and atmosphere at La Grotta. Everything was delicious!
Fabulous restaurant. Nice to dine in after months of pick up
Lovely evening with excellent service and delicious food. So glad La Grotta has reopened. Had the escargot appetizer. Wonderfully creamy and tasty. Cannot wait to go back.
