Read about La Grotta on TripAdvisor and the dining was outstanding in all aspects. We walked into a modern hi rise but ultimately into a cosy, Italian cave. Three of us enjoyed a delightful evening -service and food excellent. Our appetizer was small plate of risotto with mushrooms, followed by my entree of veal scaloppine. Other dishes were lamb and...

I've visited again recently and will have to say that La Grotta is as good as ever. The food is excellent, as is the service. I will keep coming back for more.

I've eaten at La Grotta at least 50 times over 25+ years, it is an awesome experience each and every time. I wish I still lived in Atlanta so I could visit there more often. Superb service, a great wine list and the best veal I've ever eaten. The service is world class. Read previous reviews saying the décor was... More

I had not been to La Grotta for many years. It still has excellent food and service. It was my wife's birthday and she really enjoyed the ambiance and attention. Also they seem to have many regular locals who come there since the maitre d gave them a lot of attention. Its not overly priced with entrees running about $19... More

La Grotta is a classic white tablecloth restaurant of the old school. The food is top-notch, classic European with heavy Italian influence. One of the best dishes is the Dover sole meuniere, but that it not to say the rest of the menu is anything but delicious. The small bar produces serious cocktails. Our party of four ordered Grey Goose... More

This restaurant has been there for 37 years with very good Italian food. The location is hard to see since it is in the lower level of a condo building. It has a small sign out front and limited parking, do have a valet. It is found down the hall at the lower level looking out to an outdoor patio.... More

We saw a lot of good reviews and figured we'd give it a try...we were not disappointed! Our waiter, Walter, was delightful. I told him I was looking for an Amarone and he recommended the Bussola Amarone Classico 2008. Not inexpensive by any means but was one of the best wines we've had and this helped make the meal special.... More

Few restaurants have friendlier or better service - it's attentive, informed, and even humorous. The restaurant looks and feels old school - like the 1960's. But don't let dated décor fool you. The food is great. I did two specials - an appetizer with crab and white asparagus that was amazing, and a manicotti that had amazingly delicate thin pasta... More

From the time we were seated (next to a very large party of +20 people, and no other tables available) we knew we were in for a very noisy evening. We should have left instead of being seated but being our first time there we were hoping against all odds that the large group might be somewhat civilized. Not to... More
