Great for the whole family.

My 8 year old says, "Best Mac and cheese in the world." Wife loves the tacos and I love the burgers. Nice atmosphere also. We come here about once a month.

I received a holiday gift certificate and had never had dinner at Lalla Grill. What a wonderful experience! Went last Saturday early eve (5:45pmish)--party of (2). We were seated quickly, restaurant was active! Much larger than I realized, I had been before only at the bar for drinks. The server was excellent--very attentive and did not make us feel "cheap"...

We weren't terribly hungry, so shared the nacho platter. Very good, so good that we also shared a piece of southern belle carrot cake. It was wonderful! Good service too.

This restaurant is at Del Monte Shopping Center near the Cinema. The decor is inviting, and it has a beautiful bar. The staff are friendly, there is a wide selection of choice, and small plates are available if you don't want a large meal. Otherwise their portions are quite large, but you can always take home what you cannot eat.... More

Second time eating here, nearly 3 years apart, and enjoyed it both times. I had the PG Beach Burger (which was huge), which wasn't made to my order but was fixed immediately. I can't remember what my husband had, but he loved it and had no issues. They have a nice outdoor area with a fireplace. Inside, it's roomy, with... More

Found Lalla online when looking for a place to eat near the theaters at Del Monte Center. Menu consisted of an eclectic list of foods from all different cuisines. Asked our server if the sauce on the ravioli was a red sauce to which he said yes. Was quite surprised when it came out with both a red and white... More

Neat decor with excellent service. Our waiter was great at telling us his favorites from the menu and we both ordered a salad. The lettuce was fresh, crisp and lots of flavor. Definitely go back!!
