Recently featured on Guy Fieri's "Diner's, Drive In's and Dive's". 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.

Cafe Largo was a great find! Casual dining and open later in the evening with a European flavor. Wait staff was exceptional. Food was excellent from the bread to the salad and from the appetizer to the entree. Will definately drop in again.

I never do reviews and debated whether to do this one. We went there after seeing to spot on DDD. Greeting and seating was great. Waiter was pleasant and helpful. I got the meatball for an app and my girlfriend got the escargot. They came out in a timely manner Mine was very good. Had to track down the waiter because hers was not even warm.

After a while I could see the waiter bring it out of the kitchen and the chef/owner checked it with HIS BARE HAND and it was sent over. On top of that, they just reheated an old one instead of fixing a new dish. Are you kidding me?

I ordered the veal featured on the show. I don’t think veal is supposed to have a crunch on it, it was over cooked not seared. Hers was nothing to brag about, the veal picata at best was disappointing.

It would of been nice if the owner had done a check back on our table. It wasn’t like he was too busy on a Friday night.

Below it says what would you recommend this restaurant for. They left out a response, nothing. Very unimpressed by something that was sold as a knock your socks off place. I’m the kind of person who just pays their bill and makes a mental note to pass on the next visit, but since Open Table asked for a review I gave one.

YUCK! Ordered the veal chop and spit out the first bite because it tasted just like the refrigerator that it was stored in. I asked the waitress how old it was and she said she didn’t know but that they “prep” food. This had to have been “prepped” days in advance and reheated with the microwave. Gross, yuck don’t eat here.

1st time so impressive. Ordered extremely large stuffed meatball as appetizer.
Meatball was soft and loaded with flavor and was absolutely delicious as well as the marinara. The house creamy Italian dressing on our salads was the best we ever tasted. I ordered Seafood in Marinara over linguini. It had lots of seafood and was very tasty and satisfying. My husband ordered a large veal chop stuffed with prosciutto and cheese over mushroom risotto in a rich dark brown gravy with mushrooms. Was very tender, delicious and cooked to perfection. Best veal chop ever eaten. The service was exceptional. Our waitress was very friendly and went above and beyond to satisfy us with quick service, nice conversation and a big smile. We loved everything about this restaurant. Highly recommend!

The hostess was smacking her gum upon our arrival. She never greeted us.The restaurant was very quiet and not too many people. I had made reservations on Open Table. I told her we had a reservation but probably didn't need it. We were led to a table and she never said another word to us. No your server will be in a minute. No enjoy your food. Just the smacking of her gum.
The server came and he never introduced himself. After we order our drinks we contemplated leaving after our drinks but decided to give it a chance. After he came back with a high chair for the toddler he seemed to be very pleasant.
The food was excellent. Happy that we did stay for that. I had Shrimp Scampi, light on lemon and it was amazing. My daughters personal pizza was great as well as my husbands and son-in-laws Tour of Italy.
We found the people all over area kinda moody. I guess they don't care for tourists, who knows???

Our waitress (Tasha?) was wonderful.

The hostess, not so much. When we walked in the hostess was called to seat us. She walked up engaged in a phone conversation. She ignored us for several minutes while she continued arguing with whoever was on the phone.

The food was okay; definitely far from the best we have had over our vacation in Key Largo.

Second time here and another solid experience. You’re not going to write home that it was the best Italian food you have ever had but it is good and satisfies everyone of all ages. When we get tired of eating seafood in the keys and need a break from that we come here. Reservations work well and they have a great wine list.

Worst Italian food ever. I ordered the Veal Chop which is one of my favorites and I have to say could not eat. Tasted like it was breaded and fried days ahead of time and then topped with cheese and prosciutto. The topping just peeled right off never been so disappointed. My husband had Shrimp Arrabbiata although edible very little seasoning and no salt. I think Guy Fieri should remove his endorsement. As a prior Restaurant Owner this food was totally unacceptable and an embarrassment to Italian Cooking. We will not return.
