Our family of four went to La Grotta last night for dinner. What a treat. The service was incredible. Old standby's like the capellini with shrimp and mascarpone cheese, and the duck breast...still fantastic! I always leave La Grotta looking forward to our next visit!

La Grotta remains an old standard of quality Italian food in Atlanta. Great food, but the decor is in bad need of TLC. I have know this place for 25 years and I don't think that the decor has been updated. It might but you...More

Always consistently great. Just excellent northern Italian food - with a very nice selection of some of our favorites. The prosciutto and melon is a great starter enjoyed by all. All the veal dishes are very good - melts in your mouth. If in the...More
