Serves a wide range of well-cooked food in a lovely and friendly atmosphere. Dined there lots plus lunches with baby grandchildren who are welcomed and in true Italian style, become part of the experience. Good quality wine.

Great Italian family run restaurant! Besides the great Italian food, I also appreciate the fresh fish (which is not easy to get in Switzerland) they serve. Can recommend it big time.

On our way to Italy we stopped in Horw for the night. To get in the mood we decided to already try this restaurant and we were treated to a wonderful italian meal. Very good quality for a reasonable price - and that is saying something in Switserland.

We just moved to Horw and this place is close to our new home. We tested it because after the move we were exhausted and could not cook at home. Very friendly people and great food! we already did go there multiple times since and tasted different dishes.... all very nice and tasty! Authentic Italianità in the heart of Switzerland!

Whether for a romantic dinner, a quick lunch or a big family meal, this simple, unpretentious restaurant is up to the task! The food is always very fresh. The gnocchi's and pasta's with truffle are super yummy!!! Great fish dishes.

For us, with the UK/CHF exchange as it is, Switzerland is an expensive holiday destination ... But at La Grotta we found the pizza and pasta are reasonably priced even by Uk standards and absolutely incredibly good - some of the best Italian food we have eaten. Unfortunately the wine was beyond our budget (not because it was overpriced, but just because of the exchange rate) but with the food so good, we didn't mind too much. We also loved the busy, homely atmosphere. We were staying in Kriens and La Grotta was just 10 mins walk away, so very handy. Will definitely visit again, if in the area.

On our way to Italy we had planned an overnight stay in Kriens/Luzern. Since we arrived fairly on time we decided to find a nice restaurant in the area. We could not have made a better choice. We had lovely antipasti: very tasteful fish carpaccio and a delicious burrata with pancetta and porcini. We chose pasta as main dishes: an always good spaghetti vongole and an outstanding linguine porcini, freshly available in autumn. All of this accompanied by good italian wines. The wine list is tremendous, just trust the professional and affordable advice of the friendly staff. We had a red wine from Calabria which we would never have chosen ourselves, but it was so nice with the porcini.

Great Italian food--not just a pizza place. Homemade pastas and real Italian meals available. Moderately priced. Great service.

A family run business of people from Calabria usually promises good cooking, friendly service, nice ambiance. For restaurant La Grotta you may simply forget all these expectations. Location is on a shop level on Horw main Street and interiors are basic and poorly decorated. Service is rude, brusk and unaccomodating. We had one pasta with clams, which was between poor and average and a miserable Penne Siciliane (short pasta with tomato and aubergine sauce) which was overcooked and tasteless and we had to send it back. They recooked the pasta and at this time they served a pasta which was really hard and nearly raw. They have apologized stating that Swiss like overcooked pasta (litterally). I have been in so many Swiss restaurants and I never got such miserable quality of pasta and service. A mousse au chocolat and a tiramisù, both of average quality, concluded our lunch combined with a small bottle of Pellegrino water and two glasses of house White wine. Guess the price for this terrible experience: Swiss francs 79,50, which means Euros 66,25. Conclusion: stay away.

One of the increasingly rare real Italian restaurants! We ate very well and at fair prices. The daily recommendations were also very good. We would come back any time when we visit this area.
