“Quaint and quiet lunch spot”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Some website had indicated this restaurant was closed. It is alive and well! It is a family run establishment, and we had a delightful long, relaxing lunch here. We dined outside and I would say the bruschetta pomodora was the BEST we had anywhere in Tuscany. The pick with garlic, tomato and red peppers was fantastic. Order a pitcher of house wine -- comes in a cute pitcher. This was a very nice dining experience.

“Bellisimo !!!!!!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We'd stayed inn Cortona Oct 2012 and having used it as base camp for travels elsewhere each one of 5 nights there we tried different restaurants.

This time around we only had time for a one night stay (Villa Marsili) and without hesitation, Trattoria La Grotta was both my wife and I's immediate choice. From the Antipasto to desserts they excel. The other night we enjoyed a beautiful stuffed ravioli w/ a super truffle sauce that was to die for.. the wine offering is great (according to my better half) as is their service.. The night we were there we had to wait for a table at 10 pm when other places in towns could have accommodated us immediately.. it was worth the wait but advise you to make reservations..

“Ho-hum”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

La Grotta was highly recommended by a friend but we were somewhat disappointed after our dinner. We lived in Italy for five years and fell in love with the culture and relaxed lifestyle. The variety of dinner options was average and the service was poor. We were accustomed to dining in all manner of pizzerias, trattorias, and ristorantes during our residence in Italy but at La Grotta, we felt ignored and had to get the attention of the waitor for bread, water, menus, and check. This was not typical of our previous dining experiences.

“Amazing lunch!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Really incredible food! Super fresh ingredients, some of the best house wine I have had yet in Italy, and the waiter was great with his suggestions! The bruschetta was something to write home about. The atmosphere inside was nice too, and cooler than sitting outside.
