I hadn't been to this restaurant in many years. The food was excellent and service good. Our waiter was very chatty, too much so. He took our drink orders and then disappeared for awhile probably chatting it up with another table. A few other service details were missed which is why I gave it a 4. Also we were seated... More

If it's the fall, it must be white truffle season, and we were fortunate to come upon this old school Buckhead Italian restaurant. White tablecloth class, with the patrons and wait staff to match. Oh, and the mushroom risotto with the aforementioned white truffles...the finest I've ever had.

Four of us dined here and all four meals were fantastic! Service was great and the food was just delicious. Reservations are a must here. This is my brother and sister-in-law's favorite place to eat. (It's pricey and not for someone on a budget)

We had a great dinner here while visiting our daughter who goes to Georgia Tech. An easy drive from the school and surrounding hotels. Really good italian food with alot of black truffle entrees (you can order their truffle dishes or have them shaved over any other dish you order). Also they have an interesting and fairly deep wine list.... More

Looks like you are headed into a basement - but once you get to the front of the restaurant it is quite nice and great for a romantic evening. Friendly staff. Weather permitting - the patio is the place to be; private, surrounded by nice plantings and vegetation, and only a few tables.

We dined with an old friend that was at a place that closed recently and once again remembered why La Grotta has been a mainstay in the Atlanta market. Great food impeccable service and nice surroundings.

Once you get past the location in the basement of a condo, excellent atmosphere, service and food. Just passing through Atlanta. Tried this place on the basis of reviews. The wait staff was friendly and entertaining. They clearly have their shtick down pat. Menu and wine list are both impressive. Some of the best classic Italian dishes we've had. One... More

Since my wife is a great Italian cook, it's difficult to find an Italian restaurant that we truly enjoy, but the LaGrotta always exceeds our expectations. It's not only the great food, but the family atmosphere the moment you enter the restaurant. Sergio the original owner of over 38 years, Christian his son, and Dan the manager, ALL stopped by...

HINT: This restaurant is at the lower level of a condominium, but don't worry: The setting is lovely and the experience is well worth going a little bit out of the ordinary venue for a restaurant! We had dinner with friend at La Grotta and were very impressed with the service and attention to detail. While the food was typical... More

Atlanta friends consider this one of their favorites and one of the best restaurants in Atlanta, so we were pleased to try it. It's in a bit of a strange location in the lower level of an old condo building. We shared the elevator with someone who had driven by twice without seeing the place, but there is free valet...
