"My daughter and her friend are here on Saturday 4/30 for their pre-prom dinner. Her friends mom and I tagged along at a different table. I had only been here for lunch in the past. We took advantage of the 4 course meal and it was by far the best meal i have had in years! The food was impeccable, the service was divine. I can't wait to come back with my husband for a romantic dinner"

"I grew up in Richmond and live about an hour away so we visit often. We seek out interesting and new restaurants usually thru articles/websites...For some reason , I had never been to La Grotta! If I had only known what I was missing!! We have been 2 times since we discovered it and brought friends last Friday night that also loved it. Here are the highlights....Hidden secret , friendly neighborhood restaurant . Outstanding food. Branzino ridiculously flavorful with mussels, clams... Super reasonable price wine list , fun and attentive staff! Relaxing comfortable but not too casual. Nice small intimate bar . We wil be back since we stay at Marriott Courtyard on the next block! Cheers!"

"Everything was good except my filet was a bit tough. Tables too close together. Couple next to us were super loud.
Service was great. The salmon was very good and salad was great.

"We went for Restaurant Week and chose a 3 course meal from their prix fixe menu. This was our first time there and the food did not wow me (although the tiramisu was very good). However, I would definitely give it another shot. I enjoyed the ambiance and location."

"It had been a while since we had eaten at La Grotta - it was nice to discover that the wonderful food was still wonderful. We ate from the Restaurant Week menu but La Grotta is one of the rare restaurants that also offers it's regular menu during RRW - and what an extensive menu it is! If you are a fan of northern Italian food then you are bound to find something to your liking. The salad, entree (Chicken with Artichokes) and dessert (Tiramisu) were excellent.The only drawback was the service was a bit hit-and-miss; after giving us our water, our server disappeared for a long time. In her defense, it was Saturday of Restaurant Week and Prom Season! (at least 2 large groups). We are going to miss the ambiance, though we were told they will attempt to duplicate it as much as possible at the new location at the Hilton."

"One of the biggest challenges dining at La Grotta is deciding what entree to order, and not filling up on the variety of appetizers. The seafood specials are always outstanding and the seafood crepe was phenomenal."

"La Grotta's standard menu is exceptional with so many stellar items but it is the nightly specials that are the true gems. No where outside of Northern Italy will you find these delicacies. Delicate pastry stuffed with a variety of seafood is a decadent appetizer as the Chicken Galletin. A Wild Boar chop with a blueberry sauce is beyond description as is the Veal breast with tuna tonnato sauce. I almost hate giving this review as I don't want the place to become so crowded I can't drop in when I want!."

"Our visit was during Richmond Restaurant Week, so the menu was limited but still good. Standouts that are on the regular menu include the gnocchi and ravioli. Two of the RR Week specials that were superb were the seafood crepe and the veal with tuna sauce. Maybe they run those as specials sometimes. If so, try them. Service was outstanding. Our server was knowledgeable, pleasant, and present without being obtrusive. Still one of our favorite spots, and we look forward to their move to the Marriott."

"A perfect evening with colleagues from NJ and VA. The guests were very impressed with the quality and quantity of food. The service was great. Valet paring would have been great if existed. Worth visiting in their new location."

"We were so pleased by the whole experience. Our Servicer, Shay, was at least half the fun of the experience, knowledgeable and quick witted, she kept us laughing throughout the evening. The food was inventive and plated beautifully. There was nothing that was not a surprise for the palette,very creative."

"Our first visit. The ambiance is great. Sorry to hear they will be moving as I'm not sure they can take that with them. The only thing that was negative about our experience was that they were about 40 minutes late seating us from our reservation. Food and service was good."

"The octopus tartare appetizer was very unique and delicious. The duck ravioli with mushroom sauce special was especially tasty. My husband's favorite is the homemade ravioli filled with spinach and ricotta. It is always the best thing on the menu. All the homemade pastas are excellent. The tiramisu is the best dessert in Richmond."

"This restaurant proved to be one of the best dining experiences. When I casually mentioned a dietary restriction, the server went out of his way to accommodate my need. I was served a very delicious meal, and I felt like the staff at La Grotta were very respectful of the customer's needs. Dining here was truly delightful, thanks to the old world ambiance created by the beautiful decor, delicious food, great wine, and caring staff."
