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!!!
We always enjoy our time here. Walter is outstanding of course. Just had dinner on Saturday for a birthday. Came from Knoxville to make it happen.
Another great experience!
I went to La Grotta this past Friday with two other friends, one a "newbie". As always, it was a great experience. The food, the service, the atmosphere-- it's all perfect.
This is the best consistently in Atlanta....the food is always delicious, perfectly prepared. Good service. You must make a reservation well in advance for this very popular dining experience! It's simply the best!
La Grotta is consistently one of the best restaurants in Atlanta.
Nice at La Grotta. As always great food and service! As I age, I wish the lighting was a bit brighter to read the menu’s, or maybe place a batter powered lamp on the tables to use (after all the average age of the loyal patrons is over the age of 50! It’s a treat for young couples too and I hope more of them find this treasure.
3rd wedding anniversary
The 4 of us had a great meal. Three of us had never eaten at LG and we will definitely come back. Our waiter, Billy, was one of the reasons we will return. He was professional yet at the same time charming and funny.
Black truffles were in season and I highly recommend them.
The decor and approach to the restaurant itself is a bit dated and the table was very crowded with plates, glasses and wine bottles. I would open those tables and make them round.
Nevertheless, it will now be in our rotation.
Always great food and atmosphere
My wife and I went to La Grotta to celebrate my birthday. It was her first visit ever and my first in six years. We had a wonderful dinner of Dover sole meunière...cooked perfectly with potatoes, cauliflower and broccoli. The service was outstanding...just the right amount of attention! And to top it all off, we were treated to champagne for my birthday!
Wonderful risotto with black truffles
So so lobster with pasta Small chewy chunks of lobster .
Outstanding as always! Food is perfect! Wine list is amazing! Service is sublime! Never disappointed.
Great food, service and outside dining was outstanding.
While the facade and approach is unassuming-- almost off-putting (bottom floor of an ageing condo community), once you step foot into the garden-level restaurant, you know you've made the right decision.
A neighborhood gem for decades, La Grotta never disappoints. Service is unrivaled, with servers, busboys and management aplenty, your water glass never empties, your table is picked up between courses and a sommelier will even guide you through the extensive wine list.
I took my vegetarian mother here when she visited and she was spoiled for choice. If you don't see it on the menu, just ask and it seems like they will fall over themselves to make sure you get exactly what you want.
I love this place. A true gem of Atlanta.
Lové La Grotta! The food and service are always top notch. Choose it often for a casual meal or a special occasion . Recommend it to a lot of people.
We loved our dinner experience. It was a delightful evening at a beautiful restaurant. The servers were extraordinarily nice and helpful. The servers made our evening very special. The food was absolutely delicious and I can wait to come again very soon.
Best Italian restaurant in Atlanta, probably in Georgia!
This is clearly the FINEST RESTAURANT IN ATLANTA. 39 years of exemplary service, quality and food cooked to perfection!! No more words to describe.
I had not been to La Grotta in many years; but I will go back often from here on. The food is wonderful and the service fabulous. It was obvious that our wait staff saw this as a career, not a way to supplement income until the next job opportunity comes along. It reminded me of the attitude I see in many places in France and Italy, and it is impressive. My friends and I had a wonderful evening, and it was a real treat!
Great meal - outstanding wine - Billy our waiter was awesome!
Antonio and La Grotta always exceed expectations with the exceptional food and Old World ambience.
Billy was awesome. Meal and wine delicious.!
Chef made a special request for my husband, veal a la francesa....very accommodating and delicious
I think that there is not a restaurant with better food and service. It's my favorite place to go. It fills up so fast it's very important to make a reservation. The food is consistently excellent and they'll modify a dish if it has some unwanted ingredient. GREAT! GREAT! GREAT!
Great as usual
We celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary and it was out first time dining at this place. The service was awesome and the food incredible!
Great atmosphere. Excellent food, one of the best. We went there as our Valentines Day dinner. We are now going to visit more often. It was a unique experience.
We are always treated like family. Most people know that the best meals are with family. Great service along with authentic food makes this one of our favorite goto places for romantic getaways.
My wife and I have celebrated Valentines Day at La Grotta for 21 consecutive years. This wonderful place has a very special place in our lives and in our lives. Great food, wine and service.
A return to an old favorite and we left wondering why we don’t come more often!
Food, service, atmosphere.....LaGrotta has it all. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
The menu, wine list, decor and service recreates the top of the line Italian restaurant experience from 30 years ago. The food is excellent and well-sauced and cooked perfectly. That's why it's our choice for very special occasions like Valentine's Day and why you always need a reservation. And they have outdoor seating.
My favorite restaurant in the world! Been eating here for more than 25 years. Outstanding, authentic Italian food. And memories that I will cherish forever. Service is excellent. This stands for EVERY single time I've eaten here over the years.
We had Damien again as our waiter and he made the experience even better than we could have imagined! We love it!!!
