Good food and Service. Nice combination of traditional and trendy. About 100$ for two appetizers, break, minerali water, no Wine or hard drinks, seafood plate, tortellini, two desserts, espresso. Nice wine selection and drink selection. Nice space, intimate and comfortable. Very personal service with skilled wait staff, talented young chef. Great job!

We went there with a family of 6 had a reservation. Arrived waited for 45 minutes were then seated. The waitstaff was the most rude staff that I have ever witnessed. They ignored our table and when they did arrive they acted like they were doing us a favor. While the food was acceptable there is no way that it... More

Friday night – yesterday – we arrived early for a 5:15 PM reservation and I'm glad we did. Two reasons – we were able to park in front on ma very busy street and we had our choice of tables. We sat in the bar area for our dinner and watched the hubbub of activity as it became extremely busy... More

La Grolla is a great spot for lunch. The building is really interesting with the turn of the century architecture. Food is good but a bit pricey and portions seem to be rather small to me. But, I'm an eater!! There is always a fish selection to offset the pastas and salads are fresh and always yummy.

If you want fair prices, a wonderfully warm and inviting setting, slightly subdued ambiance, attentiveness, and accessibility to a table throughout the evening, you'll be hard pressed to beat that combo in this corner of the city. the calamari, bruschetta, and crab cakes as appetizers set the stage as we then moved into pasts and chicken dishes. There is more... More

Our friends chose to take us to this charming restaurant Saturday evening. It was really busy, but the staff was attentive to our dining needs. I had the crab and shrimp stuffed ravioli with lobster sauce. It was divine!

We had a nice meal here. The salads were good as were the appetizer and the entrees. The wine was reasonably priced and I would eat there again
