This savory haven is one of Alpharetta’s coziest dinner destinations, featuring authentic Neapolitan cuisine inspired by owner and executive chef Pasquale Cardamuro’s rich heritage and epic travels. Tucked within a pristine historical home complete with lush landscaping and a pretty porch, you’ll find one of Alpharetta’s longtime date night traditions. Wines served by the glass and handmade arancini as well as made-with-love spaghetti and meatballs and mouthwatering chicken piccatta are just a few La Casa elements certain to send you into the warmth and wonder of Old World Italy. In 2013, La Casa Italian Grill was even featured by Eater Atlanta as a top ten pick for “Suburban Restaurants Shattering Urban Myths.” Cardamuro believes in preparing his dishes with passion and is dedicated to making certain every guest experiences the vibrancy of the fresh herbs and decadent sauces his restaurant lovingly prepares from scratch daily. Pasquale Cardamuro has staying power, too. He’s been dishing up Old World Italian in good ol’ Georgia for over 30 years! With his signature brand of friendly banter, Cardamuro is known to make frequent trips to the dining room of his restaurant, ensuring that the food is fabulous, the guests are happy, and the wine glasses are filled. Salut!
