Serving the finest in Northern & Regional Italian Cuisine, La Grotta offers old world charm and friendly, first class service and is located in the heart of Buckhead. A local favorite since 1978, La Grotta has received Best of Atlanta Award from Atlanta magazine since the mid 1980’s, prestigious DiRONA and AAA Four Diamond Awards since the early 90's.


La Grotta is tucked away in the heart of the Buckhead residential district and overlooks the lush gardens of the condo courtyard in which it is located. La Grotta literally means "the cave" in Italian and was named such for its cavernous and warm setting. The La Grotta staff is also well known and regarded for its vast knowledge of its customers, the food, diverse knowledge of languages (our staff speaks Italian, Spanish, French & German) and attention to detail. The menu specializes in Northern Italian cuisine with seasonal changes to reflect freshness of ingredients with a focus on locally grown produce.

We had cause for an impromptu family celebration, but wanted to feel safe outside and socially distant. The lovely courtyard at La Grotta was perfect for us. The wait staff was attentive and charming. Thank goodness La Grotta is still here, withstanding the test of time.

Once again the food was excellent. Three of us ordered a dish not even on the menu and it was cooked perfectly. They chefs and staff happily accommodated our off menu request. We can't wait to make reservations and come back soon.

This is our second time dining at La Grotta and the experience never disappoints! The food is superb, the wine list is extensive, and the service is unparalleled! We’ve had Juliano and Danny as our servers and they are true gems!

This was my first experience at La Grotta after many recommendations. The food was phenomenal and the staff was extremely friendly. It took almost 30 minutes past our reserved time to be seated because COVID related reduced capacity.

La Grotta never disappoints. The service and food was outstanding. The best mussels and lamb chops in the city. My only complaint was that were were seated next to a very loud party of four outside.

This restaurant has been around for over 30 years, and there is a reason for that. Simply put; the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal on the patio. Both the service and food were excellent. La Grotta remains one the best values in Atlanta, if not the very best.
