City Pages' Description

Warm, welcoming, and garlic-scented. If there were an encyclopedia of restaurants, La Grolla would be the one pictured under the heading "ideal upscale neighborhood Italian." Servers are cheery, confident, and a joy to work with. Ribeyes in Roquefort sauce are tender, caramelized, rich, and, in essence, a party on a plate. Lunches are budget priced. And while the restaurant isn't all that rigorously Italian (skip the unfeeling osso bucco), it excels at the restaurant-only treats (gorgeous calamari) you want when you're on a cozy date or part of a more jolly celebration. The enormous outdoor patio is a summertime charmer, a perfect place to put a bottle of Pinot Grigio in a chiller and contemplate the fact that the same moon that beams upon Italy beams on your own lucky head.

    Ravioli with crab/lobster sauce is delicious, especially paired with the salad Isabella. Pretty sure you can't go wrong with anything here though.

    Get the Farfalle (bow tie pasta with Italian sausage). Magnifico! 😘

    Order a good bottle of wine, order an appitizers, split the generously-sized entree, order another bottle of wine, save room to split a dessert & order coffee. Result: great meal.

    The bread is warm & delicious, so be careful not to ruin your appetite while you wait.
