We loved the blue cheese pizza at La Grotta. The service was excellent with the owner checking on us each time.

We all had pizzas. Couples shared the large, and we had caesars all around. It was all great. It felt like a 'pizza night' and this place did the job. Didn't have any desserts or liquor. Nice staff, pleasant interior. Glad to see it is non - smoking....as all places should be. Would go back again for sure.

My wife and I stopped at this restaurant as it was recommended to us from a friend. We sat upstairs and feel in love with the place. We both had the lasagna and were blown away. Definitely a great place to stop while experiencing San Miguel de Allende. No complaints here!

Great food! Cozy place, with a small delicious menu. We ordered a salad with tomato, goat cheese, olives and some kind of vinagrette that was delicious. 4 cheese pasta and spinach pizza. Really good flavors and service at a very good price.

The pasta is made fresh every morning. The pizza is the best! The owners are very friendly and speak English. We went back several times during our stay! It was packed at dinner time.

I love NYC Pizza & the wife is from Chicago...the pizza here is neither, BUT it is BY FAR the best pizza in San Miguel...I love blue cheese, pepperoni, green olive, sun dried tomatoes & pickled jalapenos; Wife gets the veggie stuff (healthy & flavorful); Lasagna is good; ravioli is good & the salads are awesome...we go for the Mediterranean....

Stopped for lunch and were seated upstairs in a lovely window seat. Early in the day, so we had the place to ourselves. My wife's sangria was goot and we both enjoyed our thin crust pizzas. We ordered the grande' and they heated up nicely the next day. Recommended!

We were so tired of Mexcian food, that by the time we ate here, the simplest pizza seemed absolutely delicious. Kids and adults alike, all liked this small Italian restaurant very much. Very well priced too.
