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.
Best Italian restaurant in the South Highly recommend
The classic place for fine Italian food. Our destination for special occasions for the last 40 years.
Amazing food! We are vegetarian and they made amazing customised veg pasta. You should try their truffle pasta
Best Italian in Atlanta. Great folks
We went to La Grotta for the first time to celebrate our anniversary, and I can tell you, it will not be our last. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious!
Good food and service
I went there because and old tradition of our family, eat noquies (ñoqui) on the 29th.
Doing some research apparently was the Best Italian restaurant in Atlanta.
I was disappointed, was ok. Atlanta need restaurants like "El Gavianno" or Il Mulino.
Incredible pastas! Really enjoyed our time. Recommend
It was our anniversary, had a perfect table near the window where our daughter and her friend joined us to share in our evening. Food is as delicious, as always! The service was a little lacking this time for some reason but otherwise the evening was perfect!
Thank you once again for creating such a memorable experience for us “out of towners”.
Wonderful! Great food and service.
Perfect evening! Perfect service. Perfect menu. It was truffle-icious!
The food and service were wonderful! This was our third time and we are bringing our whole family back for dinner this week. Highly recommended!!
Great! Everything was wonderful
Can’t believe we waited so long to eat at this Atlanta institution. Should have visited years ago.
Wonderful birthday experience!
Great restaurant! I haven't been in 25 years since I moved away. I will certainly come back more often. The Caesar salad was incredible, as was the choc flourless dessert.
Loved this restaurant! Had the best pasta dish I have ever eaten! Definitely recommend a visit here. We will be back on our next trip to Atalanta.
Tex the waiter was the best!!!
Drinks are on point!
Atmosphere was very romantic
Food was amazing! Service was great. Took some time to get seated even with an 8pm reservation (8:30 seated) but we had some wine at the bar. It was very busy and did not have any service issues.
Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta. A must go to if a visitor to ATL.
Great as always. Hats off to Einstein and the rest of the staff !!
La Grotta is the standard. Always exceptional in food quality, service and atmosphere.
Incredible meal. Every time I eat here, I wonder why I don’t come here more often. Meal portions are perfect; the pasta is cooked to perfection and the service is stellar.
Tables were really close together and it would have been nice to have a bit more space From our neighbors but the service was great and the food was even better!
Always a fun time at LaGrotta! Such a great place to celebrate or just enjoy the food and service. A must go place if you live in Atlanta! Can't wait to go back!
Every time it’s an experience that you treasure. Truly the BEST Italian in Atlanta, GA
This was a great experience! I love how La Grotta is hidden! The timing of each part of the meal was perfect, the service was nice, and the food was good! Great for a romantic date night!
I took my two out of town friends for their first time here, and La Grotta did not disappoint. It was, as always, outstanding!
My first time experiencing truffles and they were shaved table side. They didn’t disappoint! The service was impeccable as well!
Food not quite as good as I had remembered but I would go back.
Great restaurant! Went there for our anniversary. Amazing food and service :)
Excellent in every way. The food was excellent but was lacking with the vegetables with the lamb chops. Other tables had so much more than we received, other wise excellent
Lovely. Warm and friendly waiter. Will always come back
Best restaurant in Atlanta
La Grotta is unequivocally the best restaurant in Atlanta. Hard to think of another that even comes close, much less competes. Not enough superlatives to describe the food, wine, service, or any other aspect of the experience. On pleasant evenings, the patio is wonderful. I've been going for probably 30 years, and it remains as great as ever.
Great service and food was wonderful
We love La Grotta! It never falls short of perfect each time we dine. Every aspect from start to finish is always phenomenal!
Excellent food and service. This place really is a hidden gem! If you are looking for fresh authentic Italian food, this is the spot. Would definitely visit again in the future.
