I've been hearing a lot of raves about a place called la grotta. Finally! After our SPA session, we were able to try the "secret place".
The place is cozy, quiet and hearty Italian restaurant. It has a pretty extensive menu; waiter is knowledgeable... Indeed it is a very good place to build a little relationship and is a great date place
For starters: A free bread basket to dip in balsamic vinegar with olive oil and parmesan cheese. They also served it with liver spread and butter.
Since this is Italian restaurant ordering a pizza is necessary (well for me).
Quattro Sapori pizza. P360. This is their version of four-cheese pizza, it is baked without tomatoes. Like other italian pizza it has a crunchy and chewy texture and of course the flavorful cheese ;-) .
