Excellent service, great food, family like ambience. Definitely my new favorite.
It was our first time at La Grotta and we were celebrating a birthday. The service was impeccable and the food was savory and perfectly cooked. As a matter of fact, was in the mood for Frutti di Mare (Seafood Pasta) which wasn’t on the menu but the chef made it happen. They cater to their patrons and go the extra mile.
La Grotta has been amazingly consistent over the years and is always a pleasurable dining experience.
Unfortunately our service on Wednesday evening was not good. Because I was dining with a wine collector and it was my birthday, he brought a special wine. When our waiter opened and poured it(even asking if we wanted to pre-taste it... I’m, yes!) he then deposited the bottle in our neighbor table’s wine bucket. Despite my daughter’s mentioning to him that the occupants of that table had removed it several times, thinking it was their own, he made no move to get us our own wine bucket (or refill our wine).
The waiter approached our table only when I made eye contact and signaled him over, both to take our order, move on to the next course, or bring the check at the end of the meal. It was disappointing.
The best italian restaurant in Atlanta
Top notch on every level. I have enjoyed this restaurant on limited occasions for over 30 years and they never disappoint.
We had a lovely dining experience tonight at LaGrotta for a get-together with friends. Food was superb!
It was fabulous. I would totally recommend it.
Have you ever wished you could go back in time to the days perfect service,!sensational of food and the perfect atmosphere. That’s La Grotto. How on earth I missed this gem of a restaurant I do not know ,but now I found it, I will return over and over. Every morsel of food was cooked to perfection and Walter provided service beyond the pale. I could not give this restaurant stronger recommendation .
Well in advance it’s not easy to get a table on short notice and I understand why.
I make it a point to find authentic Italian restaurants whenever I travel. I stumbled upon La Grotta on Saturday and I'm so glad I did. Outstanding food, wine, ambiance and staff. I recommend 100%.
Always great at La Grotta. Very professional and friendly service. Great bartender. Great food. Especially the veal. Also loved the buratta caprese salad
It was great!
A rare truly Italian gem in Atlanta Buckhead area! We will definitely return.
Noted that the occasion was my wife’s birthday but waiter didn’t seem to know or care. Disappointing!
Awesome food. Our waiters were top notch. If you go and the weather is good I suggest you sit on the back patio. We will definitely be back.
Great experience. Food was delicious. Waiter was busy but attentive. Highly recommended.
Always exceptional. Never miss a chance to eat at La Grotta. Walter is the best; ask to sit at one of his tables.
Dinner with college age granddaughter.
La Grotta always brings the best. The food is incredible, the host and management on point. We love the atmosphere. Best Italian in Atlanta. Especially Truffle season.
A great place to celebrate a birthday. Food and service outstanding
I absolutely love this place. I look forward to it so much. The cheesy shrimp pasta and stuffed chicken are my favorites but everything is wonderful. Such a nice menu. Staff is perfectly attentive and so friendly and professional. Wish the bar was bigger because the bartender is so great I’d love more time there.
Thoroughly en joyed La Grotta. The food, service, and ambiance were old-school in the best sense of the word. The menu features primarily traditional Italian favorites which are perfectly prepared. The service was amazing, friendly yet unobtrusive and so efficient. What I love most about it is that I had not been here in over 20 years and nothing had changed. How many restaurants in Atlanta can say that?
You simply cannot go wrong if you take a date to this restaurant. They have a great wine list and fantastic service. The food has always been some of the best.
Always great. My wife and I have celebrated special occasions here for almost 20 years, never bad.
La Grotta continues to be the go-to place for fine Italian in Atlanta. Don’t skip this gem
Our server was exceptional! Speaking of servers, they have all worked there for about as long as I've been alive!(34) You will not find a more authentic and fresh Italian meal outside of Italy and it would be on tripadvisors top 5 if it were located in the heart of florence!
My favorite restaurant in Atlanta. Everything is excellent and the wine list is tremendous.
Food, wine, service- all outstanding
We are regular customers at your restaurant for almost over 10 years now. Recently we had a family birthday celebration and were extremely disappointed with the food. Five people became sick with the food. It was a terrible experience and I do not think I will return for dining.
I would appreciate if someone can call me at 6784683350.
Beyond my expectations. EVERYTHING was exceptional!
Our reception was both confusing and very unwelcome! First we we're told that our table did not exist. I still have no idea what this meant. Then we were led to a booth that was in the very busy path of waiters to and from the kitchen. When we asked for another table we were told the other tables were reserved. We had a reservation but apparently that wasn't good enough to get a "reserved table." After much confusion, we were seated at a nice table that moments earlier was "reserved." Our waiter tried to be very chummy possibly to counter the uncomfortable reception. The food was good but not commensurate with the price. I can think of many other restaurants that value their customers and have better food and service at a lower price. I would not recommend La Grotta.
Great service. Very personable and helpful. Celebrated birthday. Will definitely return.
Having lived in Milano for a number of years, La Grotta makes me feel like I am there again. From the food to the wine to the setting to the fantastic service La Grotta offers the genuine northern Italian dining experience!
By far my favorite Atlanta ristorante!
Only maraschino cherries for the manhattans, sold out of the wine that was recommended by the waiter and substituted the lamb "chops" for half a rack cut into three cutlets (despite assurances it was lamb chops). Disapointing.
Another wonderful meal at one of my favorite restaurants!
We've been to La Grotta before and always enjoyed it. However, this time we felt the quail was not very fresh. The veil chop was so so too. But the calamari, the pasta and dessert were all very good. I hope La Grotta will pay more attention to the quality control in the future.
Outstanding. Never a disappointment. Our server Billy was awesome and friendly
5 stars all the way around from reservation to departure
Typical excellent everything at La Grotta. If you want consistent excellence just keep going.
The absolute Best restaurant in Atlanta!!
It’s truffle season in full force.
Food was outstanding!
Service from Billy was exceptional.
Thank you Christian!!!
