A word from DiGiorgio's Cafe Largo
Owned and operated by the DiGiorgio family, DiGiorgio"s Cafe Largo is authentic. When you think pasta, local seafood, veal, tira misu and others, DiGiorgio's Cafe Largo is the first to come to mind in Key Largo. The DiGiorgio family emigrated from the cities of San Marino in north Italy and Cassino, outside of Rome. Being in business in South Florida since 1968 we have developed a great following and reputation. In 1990, the DiGiorgio family moved to Key Largo and saw the possibilities of mixing all the varieties of local seafood available with pasta and other dishes. When in Key Largo, we welcome you with open arms. Become a fan of our Facebook page and keep with our specials, events, reveiws and anything we might come up with spur of the moment.

    Our party of 4 enjoyed our pasta dinners which were a nice change from all the fish we ate all week! Three had the Sunday gravy and macaroni which all enjoyed very much. One had the ravioli and meatball. Very good.

    Location is typical Florida Keys...you would easily drive by without noticing the place. Interior was pleasant and clean and we were promptly greeted and seated. Our server was excellent without being intrusive. The food... I had the veal parm and my wife had veal marsala ...was very good. I think weve both had better at other places, but this was good.

    The food here is great and the service just as great. The escargot appetizer was amazing, and the twin filets with lobster cakes were delicious! We will definitely return here on our next visit to Key Largo. I loved the salt scrub in the rest room, and purchased some just before leaving Key Largo as it left my hands soft and smooth into the next morning.

    This place was NOT recommended by a local yet I took advise of OpenTable reviews. Service was ok...food was horrendous. Calamari was chewy and tasteless. I informed service staff and reaction was.....nothing..... Shrimp scampi (menu said jumbo shrimp). 6 small shrimp tossed in a garlic sauce on a bed of overcooked linguini in a pool of water. Wife ordered mozarella caprese...almost frozen cheese with tomato. No oil or giod quakity balsamic vinegar. ....avoid....

    My 14 year old was getting tired of the fish restaurants so we decided to try DiGiorgio's. I was nervous being a NY'r but we were pleasantly surprised. I actually had the Mahi and it was delicious and my daughter had the gnocchi one of her favorite dishes and she loved it. The deep dish key lime was outstanding too! If you are looking for good Italian try them.

    This establishment is not worth visiting while you are in the keys. Ambiance is weak. Chairs are extremely uncomfortable. Tables are similar to cheap outdoor furniture. This is a minor item and is not the reason for the bad review. The service and the food both were not up to par. The food was served cold, the entrees came out in the wrong order and the food was not flavorful. Soup was served cold without a spoon and the server could not be found to supply the utensil. Salt was one of the top ingredients. The server would be gone for long periods and my wife would have potentially had another glass or two of wine if the server was present. Save your time and money as there are much better locations to eat.

    My wife and I ate at DiGiorgio's when we were last in Key Largo two years ago. This time, we brought my sister-in-law and nephew. The food was excellent, served quickly, the specialty drinks were tasty, and the waitress was friendly and informative. We arrive early in the evening so there were not many other customers which added to the ambience because it was quiet. We had a great time and will certainly return the next time we are in Key Largo.

    i admit we're food snobs, but come on: does every place in the Florida Keys have to be boring and mediocre? based on other OpenTable reviews, I was hoping this place would be the exception, but no such luck. good garlic bread was the highlight, but soggy salad, tasteless clams and linguine, and bland chicken parm made for a 'who cares?' experience and another Florida Keys disappointment. by Keys standards, not bad, but for most anywhere else in the US, overpriced and forget-able.

    DiGiorgio's has gone downhill. If this had been our first visit, we would not return. The food was mediocre at best: limp salad plopped on a plate with a dollop of dressing in the middle; limp pasta with sauce not well integrated, a soupy, salty mess of spinach appetizer dip. Our waitress could barely tolerate any extra question and was very short on service and long on attitude. The total experience felt more like Italian fast food: we were rushed and service was rude and the food was not worth a return.

    The food was very good and so was the service! Our server was very nice and would definitely ask for her again. My wife asked questions about the menu and she was very knowledgeable. The few things she did not know, she would offer to ask the chef. I ordered the veal special which was very good and extremely filling. There was a family with young kids and the kids were being loud. The restaurant played a proactive roll and put them in the back dining room so other guests would not be disturbed. I would recommend this restaurant to others as they did a great job in keeping everyone happy.

    We were a party of 4 looking for An Italian food experience. Key Largo residents but from a very Italian neighood up north we are quite hard to please. One dish was Black Ink pasta & seafood dish.......plenty of seafood in the dish for the price but the white sauce did not have much taste. Two others had the Tour of Italy & both liked that with the 4th having a veal dish that was okay.

    Very enjoyable meal. Our waitress was excellent and one of the best we have had a in a long time. Our meal started off with garlic rolls and oil. Sinfully delicious! There were many good options to choose from on the menu. I settled on the House Special, which was not only a great price, it was prepared well too. I had a cheese cannoli , piece of chicken marsala and meat lasagna. I was only able to taste the lasagna, because I did not want to over stuff myself and leave no room for the yummy dessert cannoli, which I enjoyed with a nice cup of decaf cappuccino. My husband had a mahi fish special and it was also very good. The meals started with salads and we enjoyed their house dressing. Overall a nice experience.

    We stayed in Key Largo for 2 nights and found DiGiorgio's Cafe Largo in our hotel guide. Looked them up online and made a booking with no problems. Never used Open Table before but found the booking process very straightforward. The restaurant was great - staff very welcoming and service was fast and friendly. Very pleasant atmosphere. The food was plentiful, hot and very tasty. If ever we are in the area again I this would be my first choice of places to eat and I would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere reasonably priced to eat.

    Our group of six enjoyed everything we ordered. We had pork loin (Osso Bucco - which is a house favorite and with good reason as the meat fell from the bone as it should and simply tasted fantastic) chicken parm, gnocchi, homemade sausage and pepper and, simple pasta with broccoli. The meals were cooked to our liking,the portions were large, almost family style, and the side dishes complemented the entrees. Our appetizers were fit for sharing. The clams casino were a bit spicy, but I enjoyed them just the same. It was a nice combination with the traditional calamari, which were cooked perfectly, but weren't extraordinary. We capped our dinner with coffee, delicious homemade cannolis and amusing conversation with our colorful waitress Tammy

    On vacation and found this place right inear our condo. Family friendly but not noisy. Quaint old romantic movies play on screens like a scene from "It's a Wonderful Life". I had the pasta with sausage and veggies. It was flavorful. I like it spicy and the chef did not disappoint. The desserts are generous sizes and delicious, too. My husband and three daughters shared a piece of chocolate cake and Key Lime Pie. It was the best Key Lime Pie in Key Largo.
