Part of the restaurant is in a cave recessed into side of hill. Very good food and although staff had very little English it was smiles all the way.

Wonderful location just off the high street. A meal for two with a very good Nero D'Avola came to 100 Euros but we felt it was money well spent. we would definitely go back. Fish and meat dishes were equally good.

Staff were brilliant and very attentive. The food was excellent and very reasonable. The restaurant itself is part of the mountain behind and very unusual. For this reason alone it's a must visit!

We had a good lunch in this restaurant. Unfortunately they served no pizzas during lunch. But the plates are really tasty. It was raining so being inside in de grotta was a blessing.

We tried this restaurant after it was recommended by our apartment owner - and weren't disappointed by the superb meal we ate. Built into the cliffside and with its cave dining room, La Grotta looks amazing and provides food and service to match. Each dish...More
