For the first night of our Italian road trip we were recommended La Grotta by our hotel. As a family of 4 (2 kids 12 &10) who all love traveling and enjoying good food experiences we were really impressed by the quality and service. On our travels we always like to try local dishes when possible and the dishes on... More

you are looking for a typical local 'osteria'. I went back last Saturday with a group of friends to this place. it is in the centre of the town in a hidden alley (Corso Cavour area). Very reserved and in Summer they have few tables outside. The inside is very characteristic. As for the menu, this is a typical meat... More

We came here because we had a voucher and thought it would make for a nice dinner for two. First of all, the servers were very friendly and smiled a lot. We had the specials of the day (manzo all'olio and filetto al pepe verde) which the waiter recommended and we were very satisfied with. We also ordered the affettati... More

Our B&B hosts told us about this restaurant. They said it was wonderful. We finally found it after a short walk and a little shopping. Sooooooo when we got there, there were not many people, but it soon filled up with private parties etc. We had a wonderful waiter, lots of fun. He spoke English, which was great. The waiter... More

The food is very good, high quality that could deserve a half more star. It maintains the tavern look but the service is very professional and discrete; vegetables buffet is very appreciated and hand cut ham is a plus. Baccalà with polenta and ravioli al Bagoss (local strong cheese) deserved our appreciation. Nonetheless it is better if you are a... More

The ingredients were very fresh, the food was of a... More

Every time I come to Brescia I make sure to stop by La Grotta. Not only the people who work there are extremely nice, the food and the quality of the ingredients are excellent. The place itself takes me back in time when my grandfather would take me to italian osterias where he had his wine with local cold cuts... More

Quite an atmospheric place with excellent food and friendly and helpful staff. I would have reviewed this sooner but forgot the name. Today I found the business card! We were three friends travelling together and all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. True, there is plenty of competition in Brescia but La Grotta is well worth a visit. Closed on Wednesday. Website...
