    We enjoyed our meal, as always. One person in our party did not care a lot for the red sauce with his ravioli. Desert (crème bur-lee) was fantastic! And drinks were generous. Still a favorite spot in KW.

    La Trattoria OceansideResponded on August 1, 2022Thank you for joining us again at La Trattoria. Sorry one member of your party did not enjoy our sauce. All our sauces (and most of our desserts) are homemade! We look forward to your next visit.

    Once again an impeccable meal at La Trattoria. We've probably been to this location 60 times in the last 2 years. Their martinis are always some of the best I've ever had. And their food is delicious, and a value....not just in KW but a value anywhere. Highly recommend!

    Always a delicious meal... the Veal Marsala is my favorite .. along with their home made italian bread with oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. Their homemade Tiramisu is perfect... not too sweet and not too overwhelmingly coffee flavored. Treat yourself!

    I was concerned about dress code because I had been out and about in the island all day but they were very gracious and welcomed us! No dress code required- some were in “dressier” clothes and some in shorts and tanks. Very welcoming atmosphere and food was delicious! Portions huge and a great value for the money!

    We love the veal Marsala here and try to visit every time we come to Key West. But last night the beans and potatoes were barely warm. The veal was even thinner than before. The caprese part of the caprese salad was buried in too much lettuce. The ice cream was more like a milkshake when served, and we were not seated outside. On the good side, the server was attentive and quick. Unlike so many other visits, we were disappointed.

    La Trattoria OceansideResponded on July 12, 2022Thank you for sharing your feedback. Our owner has actually been in the kitchen for the past week, so I am surprised to hear this feedback. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention and I will address them with the owner and head chef. We do hope everything will be back to perfect on your next visit!

    Usually a favorite, this year was sub standard. I got the hogfish special and it was not very good. Maybe it was my dislike of the sauce and seasonings but the roasted garlic had a weird taste. I thought it was beans.

    Overall an enjoyable meal. Service was excellent...I tend to drink a lot of water with my meals and have come to expect my water glass to sit empty for periods of time, and it did not happen once. We finished our meal somewhat quickly and the waiter invited us to stay as long as we like to finish our bottle of wine. Didn't order a ton, bruschetta appetizer was excellent, best we've had in Key West for sure. Entree portions were generous and food was presented well, and though we cannot say we were "blown away" with the dishes, both my wife and I enjoyed our entrees which were appropriately priced based upon ingredients and quality. Didn't have dessert. Would still recommend to friends looking for italian in the area.

    Service was quite slow. It took 10 minutes for anyone to come to our table. Appetizer came before drinks. Reservation was for 7:15 and we didn’t get out of there until 9:45. We did not order dessert. Food was good. We never got any bread- not sure if that is included or we just got forgotten along with our poor service.I was looking forward to eating outside. The view was nice but on a busy road so you get traffic mixed with the water view. Apparently some people outside were ordering from the restaurant next door which I didn’t realize was an option. I will not return to this location.

    While the food and the server were fine the amount of time it took for us to get our drinks, appetizers and main courses was an abomination. Twice we had to walk into the restaurant to remind them that we were on the terrace and would like to be fed. Also they took my favorite meat off the menu – – veal Parmesan. We’ve been there easily 50 or more times and I’m not sure we’ll go back

    Our server was incredibly slow. It was nothing but apologies and excuses from the very get-go. She was VERY NICE, but still, poor speed of service. What made up for the lack of service was the GREAT FOOD!!!! I thought it would be fairly quiet and relaxed inside but other customers were being VERY LOUD the entire time. The noise level was too much!!! The guy at the table next to us just took his shoes off and was barefoot. There were gnats at the table. Great wine selection! This location has a nice indoor air-conditioned dining room. You have a view of the water but not the sunset.
