Description: 1st Italian Restaurant in San Miguel de Allende. We have been serving locals and tourists from around the globe for almost 30 years. Many people love our thin crust pizzas with homemade tomato sauce and the combination of ingredients of each clients choice. Everyday we prepare hand made pasta: fettucine, spaghetti, raviolis and lasagna as well. Please come by and experience our very cozy and unique historic architecture, in a place that feels as if you were in a grotto anywhere in Italy!

I love a home style thin crust pizza and this family run restaurant delivered the best! I have been a fan for years and just love the food and atmosphere!! When in San Miguel, you must stop in, they have other italian dishes as well, not just pizza. Also offer delivery!

I love the pizzas from here, have been at least 3 times last year, worth especially if you like crunchy and thin pizzas, with a lot of cheese and excellent taste. Pastas are not so good, but it depends your taste. Prices are slightly high compared to other good italian restaurants.

We discovered this place the night we arrived in SMA, after wandering the streets looking for any place at all that might be open on a Sunday night. Nearly all the restaurants were empty, which we always see as a bad sign. We stumbled upon this place at 8:30 p.m. and actually had to wait outside for a table. Inside, people from many of the tables waved to us or smiled in seeming recognition as we worked our way up the spiral staircase to our cute little table. This feels like a Chicago-Italian restaurant, but a little better. It's small, intimate, the service is outstanding, and the clientele is a nice mix of locals and gringos. As we looked around, we noticed many of the people were there for pizza -- and it was obvious this is a place they come often. My husband ordered a pasta carbonara and I had vegetarian ravioles --- the Italian food was fresh and delicious. The waiter spoke no English, but patiently put up with our Spanglish and helped us choose a wonderful house wine. We look forward to more visits to this restaurant.

My wife amd I have eaten at La Grotta several times amd have always ordered pizza, although the last time we were there with a party of 8 it ws not quite as good as previous visits. That said, we still feel it is the best pizza in San Miguel, El Centro. We love the atmosphere, especially upstairs which reminds us of Italian bistros we enjoyed in Europe. The service is excellent.

Great food everyday. A small family restaurant with the kind of ambiance you tell your friends about when you get home.
