Been dinning here quite a few times now. Small and quiet restaurant but they have a selection of good food. My favourite is Gamberi- 4pcs of king prawns cooked in garlic with potatoes and steamed veggies on the side. For dessert, I love their very rich chocolate ice cream. The only downside for me is the acoustic band that goes... More

Easy Italian Dining. Very good service and Cozy. There's also no corkage so you can enjoy your drinks with great food. Daily lunch is busy but dinners and weekends is a good time to get intimate.

I've visited this place for four times now since 2012, twice with friends and the other times with my husband. I love this place, the ambiance, the food, the staff. their Panini is my all-time favorite :) for those who have cars, it would be hard to park.

La Grotta has beed around a long time. A favourite venue for a a nice Italian lunch or dinner. Their menu has something for every palate with a wine list to match. I like their fillet of sole and veal scallopini. The pastas are also good. There is no parking in the front of the restaurant along Rufino Street however,... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for many years and I am sad to report that I will come no more. This used to be my favourite restaurant but recently there have been substantial changes. Maybe because of new ownership or a new chef the food quality has totally gone and it is not unusual for the words "not... More

Food is tasty, prices are just right for the quality of the food, but no suitable dish in their menu for a vegetarian. The dishes are limited. I was surprised to learn that this restaurant has been existing for some 10 years already. It is not noticeable from the street.
