What a wonderful place. Hidden away in a building on the bottom floor and then you enter a lively, intimate, well appointed restaurant. Clientele very sophisticated and you can tell dine here often. I ordered the specials all with truffles. Started with mushroom risotto and my 2nd course was veal with truffles. Just enough to flavor the dish and not... More

Loved the waiter, Walter, and we split a beet salad that was delicious, had a really good glass of red wine then came dinner, I had the quail, it was amazing, my friend has a yummy steak, the bread was really really good, and the desserts were really really good as well.

We have eaten at La Grotta for many years. We've never had the bad experiences described in some of the reviews. Contrary to some who complained about noise, we find it always easy to converse even when close to other diners. The wait staff (some who have been there for decades) are competent, friendly, helpful and often humorous. They always... More

My fellow management rave about this restaurant but I think it is a bit over-rated. the food is very pricey but not great, with portion sizes that do not fit the price. It was also a little loud which we were trying to avoid since we had business associates with us.

Gosh, the other La Grotta located at the Ravinia closed and this location isn't doing so well either. It suffers from the same lack of consciousness as the closed one that my wife loved. I made the reservation emphasizing that it was for her Birthday. When we arrived I saw they had that clearly marked on their computer so I... More

La Grotta is one of those places with a great reputation for fine dining in Atlanta. My parents had been there with friends several times before and wanted to go back for their 61st anniversary.

Dined with friends for a late dinner. It has been many years since we visited La Grotta. Nothing has changed. Good food, but poor atmosphere. The restaurant is in the basement of a building and you literally think you are in a dining hall for a condo building. The tables are all packed real close together, the ceiling is really... More
