About the restaurant
Serving the finest in Northern & Regional Italian Cuisine, La Grotta offers old world charm and friendly, first class service and is located in the heart of Buckhead. A local favorite since 1978, La Grotta has received Best of Atlanta Award from Atlanta magazine since the mid 1980’s, prestigious DiRONA and AAA Four Diamond Awards since the early 90's.


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.

The ambiance was elegant & comfortable, from the hostess to the waiter everyone was extremely professional and well-trained. The food was 12/10 and we didn’t feel rushed to eat at all (we did have a 9:00PM reservation). Would definitely dine here again!

Our 5th or 6th time at di Paolos. We love the atmosphere, the food and service. My wife had traditional boulannaise and I the frutti de mare pasta with angel hair, shrimp , clams and mussels. We started with clams in wine sauce and shared salad with heart of palms. All washed down with a local red from Montepulchano Italy. The only thing that topped it all was the excellent service by Kelly. It was a busy Friday evening and a full house but she gracefully and cheerfully served us. A great date night for a married couple of 58 years!

Every time we visit Trattoria One41, we are treated to a dining experience fit for a VIP. We enjoyed a short rib ravioli (which was an off the menu dinner special) linguine with white clam sauce, and chicken Parmesan with the roasted mushroom risotto. Everything was absolutely delicious! We finished with the ricotta cheesecake with caramel sauce that is extraordinary. Jazzy takes such amazing care of us, she and Herbert and the boys provide the best service in town.

Excellent food and service at a local Italian restaurant. I agree with one of the other earlier reviews that it got loud in there and some sound dampening could help. Otherwise, worth a visit and we’ll go again.

Ordered lasagna, which was fantastic! Other person in party ordered scallop risotto, which was a disappointment. Scallops not cooked to desired temperature & crispiness on outside. There was also the flavor of vodka on the scallops, which was unexpected. Typically, Pricci is superb in the cooking of the dishes. This was unusual.

About the restaurant
La Tavola translates to “the table” in Italian—a place where friends and families can gather anytime. Simple yet elegant dishes, classic sauces and creative entrees emphasize the true taste of Italy’s premier ingredients, complemented by a carefully chosen and extensive wine selection.

La Tavola’s exposed brick, dark wood floors and rustic colors give the restaurant its authentic trattoria feel, while progressive touches hint at its innovative cuisine. And with indoor seating for 60 guests, a small bar and an outdoor covered patio for 40 or more, the space is just right for celebrating any occasion together.
