La Grotta is a family owned and operated business. In addition to many waitstaff who have been around for 30+ years, Chef Antonio Abizanda has perfected his Northern Italian cuisine at La Grotta since 1978. Partner Christian Favalli was hanging coats in the coat room in 1978 and is now the face of the business. He can be found buzzing around the dining room most evenings making memories with guests, old and new.
Our menu and wine list are extensive and boast true Northern Italian cuisine and wines from all around the globe. If you have a favorite in mind and it’s not on our menu, we are happy to create it if we have the ingredients in house.
