Our group of four foodie ladies visited la Grotta for lunch and all had the taster's menu. It was delicious and the service was outstanding. This is not the type of place for a quick bite to eat. You must leave enough time to savor the food, the atmosphere and the wine. You won't be sorry. Call ahead for a... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary on the recommendation of our host and were NOT disappointed. The staff is friendly and kind, the atmosphere is rustic and romantic, and the food...exquisite. This will be one of those experiences that we'll talk about for years.

We took 15 minutes and two wrong turns but finally found the restaurant. Parking was difficult as the place was crowded, but once seeded the food, wine and service more than made up for the difficulty in finding . The Rack of Lamb was exellent and cooked as I requested, and the wine, one of the local Nobile was well... More

We had lunch here and loved it! They have a beautiful garden outside that was so lovely to enjoy under the warm Tuscan sun. The pasta that I had here was my favorite of my stay in Italy. It was so simple, yet packed with flavor. It was incredibly delicious! We loved that this spot was a little out of... More

Very good quality food - We had the degustation menu and found it to be of a very good standard. Interesting twists on local favourites, slightly smaller portions but well and truely enough food. Had wine by the glass - 2 whites (typical of Tuscany) but very good selection of reds

La Grotta didn't just serve up the best dinner of my two-week stay in the Val d'Orcia -- it provided one of the best Italian meals I've ever eaten, anywhere, period. The location in a historic building set in the graceful Piazza San Biagio is part of its charm. Inside its vaulted rooms, or amidst the pleasant garden, one is... More

We recently had a truly extraordinary dinner at La Grotta, which had been recommended to us by friends. We really had no idea it would turn out to be as good as it did--course by course, the food wasn't simply very good, it was excellent and sophisticated. We ate out almost every night during our nearly two week vacation in... More

We went there for lunch once we arrived. Beautiful and quiet garden at the back of the restaurant offered great food and a calm atmosphere. Highly recommendable.
