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.

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta by far!!
Amazing meal. No sign of corona virus here!! Packed at 8:30 tonight. Everything was great except the service was awful.
Amazing !!!! Not too much else to say.
Loved the food and the service, highly recommend.
The best Italian food in Atlanta. Service was impeccable. We celebrated my daughter's 18th birthday, and they treated her like Royalty. This is as good as it gets in Atlanta for both food and service.
I have to say that the food was absolutely delicious! A bit pricey but nonetheless, delicious! The wait staff was wonderful and very attentive except towards the end of the meal when the place got busier. I had to flag the waiter down to bring us the check. I would have wanted the tables to be spaced out a bit further than they were. During our meal, which was a joyous occasion, there was a lady who was obviously not happy with how things were going at her job and we got to experience it like we were at her work with her. She was just loud, obnoxious, and rude.
I am not one to write reviews unless it was memorable in either direction. It was my second time at La Grotta. Tony was our server - he made us feel very welcomed. Professional, funny and intuitively attentive without ever making us feel rushed or ignored. He made a work dinner a special night. The food was incredible too. If you ever wanted to try quail, this is the place to do it. It was cooked to perfection and the sauce .... oh the sauce!
Pretty great, except the clams which they removed from the bill. Otherwise it was a great meal and experience.
Food is excellent with good portion size.
Myvwife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at La Gtotta and it was a wonderful experience. Great food, superb service and warm atmosphere is a winning combination.
Excellent wine . Great food and service. Room was a little loud, but a lot of happy folks tend to make some noise. Would go again.
The food was amazing.
Consistent, classic, always a notch above in all arenas!
Impeccable dining experience.
Everything was excellent. This is a must place to dine
I have a difficult time picking an entree
Always a favorite! Never disappoints!
Everything was amazing! I’ll admit that the outside does look like a retirement home lol but once you make it inside, it was lovely. The food was A++
A great restaurant! Fantastic meal, excellent wait staff, friendly manager. Really a to notch experience. Highly recommended.
The service was quite good; the ambiance very nice; however, the food was really much below what it shoujd be for a fine, expensive restaurant
Great for a special occasion!
We dined here for a friend’s birthday. It was easy to make the reservation and multiple times were available on the day that I chose. We were greeted prompted by valet when we arrived (it’s complimentary). Once inside, we were greeted by the host who wished my friend a “Happy birthday” along with each staff who we encountered. The service was great! Food & drinks were excellent.
To be Honest.. Very Very Disappointing .
They could not get us out fast enough for the next seating ... not even to talk ... Faster than The Fastest CHINESE Restaurant... all my party annoyed ... we went to another location afterward to have a post dinner chat !
La Grotta is always a classic, delicious dining experience. Second to none in Atlanta.
La Grotta is absolutely fabulous, as always! I love this restaurant, and their exquisite service, and authentic food.
AMAZING!! As always!! The staff and food are just wonderful!
Date night before Valentine’s Day. The male server with glasses talks entirely too long to each guest. The only reason I’m aware of this is because he was louder than everyone in the restaurant
