Great ExperienceWe went for mother's day brunch with our families! It was a wonderful experience. The staff were attentive and enthusiastic. The kitchen sent out extra food to our table, which was much appreciated! Overall, our mothers were made to feel very special. The menu was more expensive than I expected at first; however, the portion sizes are comparable, and in the end the food was so good and experience so memorable it was definitely worth it! We can't wait to go again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the driveWe enjoyed the dinner, the surroundings and service. The owner [we think] came by our table several times to assure all was OK. Only surprise was the serving size of my dish, smaller than other restaurants. Perhaps that was a result of ordering from one of two price-fixed menus. OK by me, however, if that changes portion size it should be shared. My wife's plate was easily double the quantity, leading me to above conclusion.
The salad was excellent and the lemon tart after the meal incredible.
All in all, excellent experience. We'll live in the Roswell area (about 45 min drive) and it was good enough to bring us back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is delicious andThe food is delicious and attractively plated. The decor is fascinating and feels good. Love the music. The service is friendly, attentive and helpful. Look forward to our next visit.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but it costsI enjoy this restaurant and the food is good but it is more expensive than it should be. There are equal if not better restaurants in the area that are more reasonable.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is incredible butThe food is incredible but you have to be careful as they will just keep bringing trays of food that you think are built into the price only to find out they are all priced separately.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI always get the cannelloni.I always get the cannelloni.

Overall the ambiance and the food were simply amazing; however it was the attentiveness of the staff that puts this place over the top. I would say Il Localino is in a class of its own, but the quality of the food is fine dining level, but its relaxed atmosphere makes you feel much more comfortable than a typical fine dining establishment. Every staff member was kind and attentive; they seem to all be like one big family there. I typically never write reviews, but this place has me telling everyone I know that they must partake in this great experience!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSo happy to discover Il Localino!So happy to discover Il Localino!

Visit Il Localino when I am in Atlanta. Being a New Yorker
I am very critical when it comes to Italian food. Il Localino
Rivals any restaurant I have been to. The quality of the food and the service at Il Localino
Are hard to find anywhere else. If you are lucky enough to be there when professor G is in the kitchen
And Gale is directing the dining room you are in for an awesome experience !!!
