Serving the finest in Northern & Regional Italian Cuisine, La Grotta offers old world charm and friendly, first class service and is located in the heart of Buckhead. A local favorite since 1978, La Grotta has received Best of Atlanta Award from Atlanta magazine since the mid 1980’s, prestigious DiRONA and AAA Four Diamond Awards since the early 90's.


La Grotta is tucked away in the heart of the Buckhead residential district and overlooks the lush gardens of the condo courtyard in which it is located. La Grotta literally means "the cave" in Italian and was named such for its cavernous and warm setting. The La Grotta staff is also well known and regarded for its vast knowledge of its customers, the food, diverse knowledge of languages (our staff speaks Italian, Spanish, French & German) and attention to detail. The menu specializes in Northern Italian cuisine with seasonal changes to reflect freshness of ingredients with a focus on locally grown produce.

    This recent visit left us disappointed! The service was extremely slow and inattentive. The dishes which we usually love, seemed rushed and lacked the usual depth of flavor! Our pasta came with come crunchy parts as if it got stuck to the bottom of the pan. We love the atmosphere of enjoy sitting outside under the lights. But overall it a disappointing experience compared to our previous visits!

    Always a great experience. I took my firm’s international co-CEOs. They loved the food, wine list, the hidden nature of restaurant, old school vibe and the fact 6 of us could hear each other.

    Service was impeccable. Food was outstanding. Noise level was pretty high making conversation difficult, but that was likely a one-off due to the obnoxiously loud table sitting next to us….no fault of the restaurant. It’s a cool setting with great food and service. If you’re looking for a high end experience with a high end meal, this spot definitely fits the bill.

    LaGrotta was an amazing experience! We kicked off our evening with flavorful Caesar salads and then savored a perfectly grilled, incredibly fresh salmon. The service was exceptional, as always. LaGrotta's staff is truly the best in the city. We can't wait to return soon!

    There is only one La Grotta! We had an exceptional experience! The restaurant was packed on a Monday night, but our reservation was honored on time and we could converse in normal tones. The food was excellent - burrata salad and calamari to start, ravioli with goat cheese and apples and scallops with risotto for mains. Yum! Had enough room for light desserts and complementary champagne! Run to this fabulous Atlanta restaurant!

    Celebrating 49th anniversary. First ate at La Grotta in mid 80s. First class atmosphere and service continues with owner’s son, Christian, who stopped by for a friendly chat. Such continuity is a rarity in this world.
