La Trattoria Oceanside -
Best Restaurants in Key West
We are from Rockport, Texas and
vacation in Key West every couple of years... On our last visit here we "discovered" La Trattoria Oceanside and loved it. Now that we're back in Key West again we knew where we wanted to go for fine dining. The restaurant did not disappoint! Our waitress was excellent and the food was sublime! We would highly recommend La Trattoria Oceanside and plan on coming back ourselves time after time. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience."

Once again, we had an excellent
evening at La Trat. Food, service and ambiance- all excellent."

We have been going to La Trott for
over 20 years downtown. This location is a joke in the consistency of the food. Great amostphere and great staff but food isn't as good as the downtown location. It is a disappointment. I am in the food business all my life and the food really needs to improve or I cannot feel comfortable recommending it to others. C'mon new owners. Have some pride in the food.!"

We were a party of 6 locals and
had a great time. Food and dessert were amazing but it must have been a very new bartender because the drinks were terrible. Both dinner drinks and dessert drinks weren't anywhere near close. Also our server was very hard to understand and didn't come by often. The bus boy was better and more caring than our server."

We were a party of 2. The app was
not edible. The mushrooms in the app left an unidentifiable taste in our mouths that was not pleasant. The eggplant had a layer of grease on the top. The spaghetti and chicken portions of the chicken entrée were tiny. Unfortunately, the waitress did not visit the table after taking the order. The bill totaled 72$ and we mostly saw the bus boy the entire dinner. We live and work on the island so we choose not to complain."

La Trattoria Oceanside is the
seaside sister version of its counterpart downtown on Duval Street. Both offer excellent Italian cuisine and service. We favor Oceanside because of its great ocean views and its updated decor. Oceanside has a small bar area which is tucked away toward the back of the restaurant. It is cozy but lacks the great water views. We had the special of the day recently - a wonderfully prepared grouper that was fresh and delicate. It was also a birthday event and they came with cake and a traditional Italian sparkler in the middle. The service was attentive without being intrusive. This was a great dining experience!"

Based on their Duval St. Location
I expected much more. Honestly the food was great and the waiter was very good, the server that delivered the food was very awkward and clearly uncomfortable interacting with people. The view is amazing however it was not enough to distract me from the numerous plastic plants and unattractive led rope lighting neither which I find appropriate in a fine dining restaurant."

I"ve been to La Trattoria many
times and I've always had wonderful dinners there. This time, I mistakenly ordered Linguini Aglio e Olio, which I truly love (I order it at Salute's regularly). This was the first time I ordered it at La Trat. The entree came out absolutely laden in burned garlic. I tried a few bites, but the garlic was stronger than anything I have ever experienced. I have a degree in Hotel & Restaurant management and know when a dish is not prepared correctly. When the waiter cleared our table and picked up my almost untouched dish his first question was "Do you want to take this home?", and when I said no, his second question was "So, did you save room for dessert??". Unfortunately, I said no (I had lost my appetite)."

Everything was average at best.
Tomatoes on caprasi salad were still green. Carpaccio was thick and fatty. Entree was decent but still average. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant to anyone"

DINING AT LA TRATTORIA IS ALWAYS A
FESTIVE, SPECIAL OCCASION HERE. GREAT SERVICE, EXCELLENT FOOD AND GREAT VIEW. WE LIKE IT BETTER AT LA TRATTORIA OCEANSIDE BECAUSE IT IS QUIETER AND A GENTLE WAY TO SAY GOODBYE TO THE SUNSET WITHOUT ALL THE BUSTLE OF DOWNTOWN KEY WEST."

I had been craving pasta...Italian
pasta...I cooked a olive oil caprese chicken over penne and loved it but just wasn't the answer to my craving...I ordered Bruschetta appetizer, Virgillio Martini, and Tortellini Virgillio....ahhhh! I'm ok til next month. The Open Table Website was so easy to use and allowed me to send invitations to my co- diners!! Nice!"

We often go to Oceanside as we
find it always comfortable and enjoyable."

LaTratt is 1 of our fav places for
special occasions. The service is always great, & the food consistently superb. They're very generous with their olive oil and parmesan dipping plates for the delicious bread brought out and personally served to us. Though there was no bread on the table, the server kept asking if we wanted more, and we could have filled up on that alone had common sense not returned in short order. We shared an antipasta for the table, which was not large but in fact, large enough especially after all that bread. We can recommend penne with crab, the scallops (the child with us asked for pasta instead of rice...no problem), chicken marsala, and most definitely the best tiramisu!"

Great alternative to Old Town
restaurants. Highly recommend the Creme Brûlée. "

Good food, Good service, nice
ambiance. What more can I ask for when taking some good friends out to dinner?"
Dined on 6/4/2014
Everything about the dinner was
great. Service was super friendly; in a professional way. Extensive menu selections - hard to choose. Food was great. Yes, foodies - - this could be your home. Yumm. Manager and owner came to table to make sure we were happy - - we were. No negatives; all positives. We go to a lot of restaurants in a week - - this was a real gem."
Dined on 6/1/2014
Our romantic dinner was not as
hoped. While the food was good and the service great... the noise level was unacceptable for fine dinning. There was a table with some rather boisterous diners which was the main problem. There also appeared to be a lack of adequate soundproofing (sound absorbing material) in the room."
Dined on 5/31/2014
I have dined there before and
loved it but this time the food was horrible. The veggies were cold and the fish was barely warm. The fish tasted as if it was a week old and the crabmeat and garlic could not mask that fact. We are not the type to send food back and make the rest of the table wait for our new entrees to arrive and for us to finish so we kept it. My friend only had 3 bites before he stopped eating. The restaurant was almost empty and there was no excuse for cold food. It is saddening to see the quality of food deteriorate in such a lovely restaurant. I know you can do better."

Wonderful food, service and ocean

We were told that the food at La
Trattoria was "heavy duty Italian," but that was quite an exaggeration. The menu offered a number of classic Italian choices and variety enough to satisfy any number of dining preferences. The service was excellent, and we enjoyed our evening there very much."

Their fish special is always good.
Great flavors. Service excellent. The view of ocean is breathtaking. My favorite restaurant. "

Second time dining here and was as
satisfied as the first. My out of town guest was duly impressed, said the chicken Marsala was the best he ever had."
Dined on 5/16/2014
Each year we visit Key West and
always eat at La Trattoria in Old Town - at least once. This year we ate at both Old Town and Oceanside and the only differences were the view (Duval versus Oceanside) and the ambience (traditional versus contemporary). The food was the same - fresh and delicious! Look forward to next year!!!"

Decided to change our cuisine to
Italian on our last night on the island. Although there were Italian fish dishes to be found on the menu. Magnificent food!"
Dined on 5/9/2014
This is our go to restaurant for
birthdays and other special events. The service is always professional with a relaxed attitude. The front dining Area overlooks the ocean, and the back dining area has a more intimate feel. The food is delicious and flavorful. The tortellini Virgilio is my favorite dish with a hearty sauce and chunks of sausage. Another dish that I enjoy is the little neck clams in white wine sauce, full of flavor! The desserts are outstanding as well, especially the cream brûlée, and tira misu. "

What I love about this restaurant
is the location/view, ambiance, quietness, wine list and background music. When I dined there this weekend only the first two were consistent. Our server never handed us the wine list instead strongly suggested we order the half bottle of wine which we did. We did not like the wine and wished we had ordered glasses of La Crema as we normally do. About half way through our dinner, the music was changed from the Standards (which I love at an Italian restaurant) at a comfortable volume to Country music played at a higher volume. Immediately after the music and volume were changed everyone started talking louder. Not a nice dining experience for my date and I."
Dined on 5/9/2014
We really, really enjoyed our
evening there. From start to finish the meal, the vino, the service, and the views were top notch. And reasonably priced for a Key West restaurant of this caliber. We'll definitely return on another trip to the Keys."

Our go-to place for dining out in
KW. Coming from the Northeast where Italian restaurants are abundant & excellent, we are a bit picky. La Trat does not disappoint. Service is excellent, warm bread when you sit down, along w/ excellent herbed oil for dipping--dishes are lg, but we were 5 that evening, & they brought 3 containers of it so we could all reach. Very nice. My fav veal cannelloni was perfect as usual. 2 others had lasagna, delicious w/ nice chunks of beef & generous cheese. Scallops, also delish. They offered a 1/2 price, 1/2 size entree of anything on the menu for the child w/ us, nice to be able to choose grown-up food! We'll always go back, and a nice parking lot & view of the ocean makes it all a very pleasant experience!"

La Trattoria Oceanside was
wonderful. My veal marsala was perfect, the potatoes really good. We had a wonderful salami soup. We had amazing service and a wonderful ocean view. The restaurant is spacious - plenty of room between tables. And the birthday tirmasu was wonderful."

We reserved a table here for a
romantic dinner after our wedding, which was a short distance down the beach. We arrived a little early but our table next to the window overlooking the ocean was waiting for us. Our server was very good and knowledgeable but also very busy so he was a little slow in following up on everything but not really objectionable. Food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening there. This was our first visit to this location but in our opinion, it is equally as good in all aspects as their Duvall Street location, with a better view."

For a special evening with my
wife, I especially enjoy dining at Trattoria Oceanside. The service is consistently smooth, the food is good, and the ambiance is relaxing. Although we eat out most nights of the week this is my favorite restaurant in Key West."
Dined on 4/25/2014
It's a perfect place for fine
dining if you don't feel like the bother of Old Town traffic and parking problems. Dinner is always perfect."
Dined on 4/24/2014
We were seated at a cozy table
with a very nice view of the ocean. The service was prompt and the food was excellent. Even when the wrong soup was brought to the table, the server promptly corrected the mistake. The pasta choices were excellent and the portion size was healthy! I would definitely return to this restaurant."
