La Grotta serves Tuscan comfort food at reasonable prices. Their pastas are rich with creams, spinach, prosciutto, etc.--for delicate, subtle flavors you will have to look elsewhere and pay more money. The staff and owner are jovial, the small outdoor patio is relaxing though it...More

My wife and I had mixed opinions about La Grotta. The service was quite good and friendly. The spinach/spelt (?) soup was tasty. We both ordered veal with porcini, and she thought it was wonderful, while I felt it to be OK to pretty good....More
