Our party of four recently had dinner at Ristorante La Grotta, and could not have been more pleased. Each dish was perfection. Perfect pasta, tender Florentine steak. Excellent wine list and attentive staff. Highly recommended. (Put on your fat pants and live a little!)

We received exceptional service, and very much enjoyed the tasting menu. Starting dinner with the nearby sound of church bells and a lovely view from the cozy garden terrace made the evening truly a night to remember.
