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.
Wonderful. Could not have been better!
It was fantastic our server was excellent my
Wife and I truly enjoyed ourselves
AMAZING ATMOSPHERE!! The staff was amazing, and they know exactly what to offer for your experience to be even grander! I never would've expected the restaurant to be located where it is, but it was amazing! Would definitely go again!
We drove in from out of town just to go here for my wife’s birthday.
Magnificent from start to finish.
Classic Italian cuisine, superbly prepared in appropriate portions
Exceptional wine list
The service is great and on point
Truffle service was very disappointing. There was a dullness to them that I haven’t experienced at other restaurants. Not impressed.
Love this place. The food, service, and atmosphere are all top notch.
LOVED this place! Will definitely be back very soon!
Always great food, service, and ambience. The inauspicious entrance in an apartment building only serves to highlight the delight this place brings. An Atlanta classic that continues to deliver!
La Grotta is a great place for all occasions. Food and service were both fantastic!
I brought my man here for his 45th birthday and we were both simply blow away by this place! The food was impeccable, the service was amazing and it felt like we were in Italy. I can't wait to go backkk
Always special New York style Italian
As always, La Grotta exceeded our expectations!
Great atmosphere! Unique compared to other alternatives in Atlanta. Nostalgic feel with probably the best Italian food around.
Corkage fee is a bit high, but we had a good time with good food and excellent service.
Amazing as always !
Loved everything about our dinner. Is on the pricey side but worth it now and then.
Our favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta. Always an excellent dining experience.
Juliano is the greatest server.
We ate here during a 5 hour layover in route home from a vacation to NYC, and it was the best meal of the entire trip! Risotto with truffles was amazing, and my son loved his pasta so much, that he ate a second helping. The wait staff was extremely accommodating. The server could tell that my son was cold, so he wrapped a blanket over his shoulder and called him sire for the rest of the meal! :-) Great experience, we can't wait to go back!!
Great food and service- overtime we visit we have an incredible experience!
Best Italian in Atlanta. Every dish was amazing! The wine list was exceptional.
Amazing dinner with exceptional service. MY wife and I enjoyed each course and the wine was perfect.
Excellent! Our server was so nice! The food was delicious. Beautifully decorated restaurant!
It was amazing. Literally. So good! Treat yourself and spend more money, it’s worth it.
Best Italian, service and quality!
A must visit whenever you visit the great city of Atlanta!
It was a great dining experience from the time we walked in the door and was greeted by a very nice lady who escorted us to our table to the time we exited. Outstanding!
Always challenging to hear others. The food is amazing!
Christian was such a welcoming host! Abs our waiter was awesome and the bread guy so sweet :-) we loved sitting outside and the lighting and fans were perfect for a summer evening. We returned after 30 years and with a more refined palette - we found la grottos to be world class! This is going to become our regular place!
Ambiance and service were superb! Carpaccio appetizer is wonderful. Cesar salads were above average. Veal picatta entre and gnochi entre about a 7 out of 10. Next time would probably go with a special or a different pasta dish. Tira Misu for dessert was exceptional, maybe the best we've ever had, as well as a perfect cappaccino to end the evening. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
The chopped Veal Parmesan is amazing! We sat outside in their garden area and it was very nice!
La Grotta is our favorite italian restaurant! We go every change that we get.
Best evening ever to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Phenomenal food, service, and ambiance.
The service felt a bit rushed. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday, and I had expected it to be more leisurely based on past experiences.
LOVE eating in the garden! It is completely different atmosphere. It is SO lovely out there, so relaxed and so noise-free!
the food was terrible never had worst was rated 10 best who ever rated that restaurant a 10 never eat italian food
This was a great dining experience.......great service and great food! If you find yourself in Atlanta, I highly recommend it!
The experience in total at this great Italian never disappoints. There is no question this is the best Italian in atlanta and likely far reaching as well.
