A family-style Italian restaurant called La Grotta has been open for almost a month now, and it totally flew under the radar—probably because it's inside Mission Market (2590 Mission St.). Odd indeed. But Yelpers are raving about the free bread, and a Facebooker says "this is the best italian restaurant ever omg i feel like I'm in italy! [sic]" The joint's beer and wine license just came through, so drop reports below if you have them. [EaterWire]
