I suggest you sit at the bar and get the Cappellini al Basilico e Pomodoro. So simple, fresh and flavorful.

If you want to true fondue experience this is the place to go. Great staff, Greta choices in all types of fondues. The atmosphere is loud and fun like you would expect in a true Swiss restaurant.

This was our first visit to LaGrolla. It was a beautiful night and we ate outside. The service was excellent...only to be outdone by the food. I ordered chicken, the others ordered seafood . No one was disappointed. I look forward to a return visit.

I had the penne alla vodka and the Isabella salad. Both were delicious and I will definitely be back. While we ate indoors, the outdoor seating looked lovely.
