Having spent two glorious weeks in San Miguel eating the fresh farm to table truly great Mexican food, our family was finally craving a perfect pizza. What a wonderful surprise to find one of the best Italian restaurants offering pasta and pizza at wonderfully reasonable prices. Just around the corner from La Parroquia and the main square is this gem... More

I disagree with the reviewers who mention pretension and think it is too trendy. This place has good food, better drinks and staff that Really wants you to be happy. The Rosewood Hotel is naturally going to attract a more we'll-heeled clientele than a casual B & B, so fancier is just a given. Deal with it or go elsewhere... More

We have ordered and picked up as well as had delivered, several pizzas from La Grotta. In each occasion, we have thoroughly enjoyed both the service and the excellent food.

We ate in the restaurant once and it was quite good. I had spaghetti and meatballs with a Caesar salad and it was quite tasted. My husband had the spinach lasagna and loved it. Twice we had them deliver , once a margarita pizza that was great and one night calzones also great. Delivery was timely, hot, and accurate. This... More

Six of us walked into La Grotta (on our first night in SMA) about 10:00pm. We were tired from traveling all day and were looking for some good food and were pleased to see this restaurant still open. White tablecloths lined every table and we were quickly greeted by an English speaking waitress who said she would be translating for... More

Our visit to La Grotta was on the occasion of my 75th birthday. I couldn't have asked for a better setting or a more satisfying experience. Eight of us sharing variously topped pizzas and abundant wine and beer. I've been to La Grotta on previous visits, so I wasn't surprised that it met my expectations and beyond, thanks to a... More

Cozy ambiance and close to the Jardin (main square). The salad and pizza are good, but nothing exceptional. Servers are very friendly, which always helps. This place is fine if you are just craving some pizza, but do not expect anything amazing. For excellent pizza (and pasta or risotto), go to Bacco instead.

We had a wonderful lunch here with garlic bread, Caesar salads, a delicious pizza with pepperoni and sausage, and ice cold beer. In addition, the owner ran up and down a spiral staircase multiple times to deliver everything to us at an upstairs table under a fan and next to a window. Good food. Good service. At a reasonable price.... More

I stopped by La Grotta for dinner last night. Although the meal was ok, the overall experience did not stand up to the high TA rating. I had their ravioli mixta. The pasta was well prepared and presented and the flavors were very nice, although not exceptional. The wine selection was very disappointing. There was only one red wine available... More
