La Grotta

Upon my trip back from Asia, I was really craving for pasta! MJ then brought me to Unionville at Main St. for some italian food. Again, Unionville Main St is our go-to place if we want to avoid driving to downtown.

La Grotta offered a 3-course prix fix menu for $29.95. The restaurant was sort of underground with a walk-out patio. Unfortunately, the day that we arrived was raining so we didn’t get to enjoy it.

Aside from the 3-course menu, we also ordered the Calamari to share. It was a choice to grill or fried, we picked fried. 🙂
Tender squid, served with homemade seafood dip ($12.95)
Delicious! Would come back for this!

For appetizers with the menu, I got the Soup of the day – pea & cream soup.

MJ got the Portobello mushroom – roasted & served w/goat cheese & ricotta cheese

For mains, Veal Pizzaiola – Panfried w/mushrooms, onions & peppers in tomato sauce

Spaghetti Bolognese – w/mushrooms & topped in meat sauce

Both mains were just rather normal.


Fruit Sorbet

Overall, everything was just alright. The only thing that stood out was their calamari! For the price of their prix-fix menu, it’s decent. I would rather much enjoy Alice Fazoolis’ pasta instead though. However, La Grotta had great service! It’s a nice date-night location if you’re looking for somewhere quiet or if you want to sit out in the patio during summer.
