Food was great, service was great, but I didn’t feel as safe as I did the last time I came. The restaurant didn’t do temperature checks as they were doing before and the Covid cases are going up rapidly in Florida. I have only gone to La Trattoria since this started and I am hopeful that they will do everything they can to keep customers and employees safe.
Thank you for choosing to dine with us again.We are following all the city regulations regarding COVID-19.The temperature checks for guests were briefly required for the city, but that requirement as been lifted.We continue to do daily health checks for all employees including a temperature check.We still require guests to wear facial covering upon entrance, exit, and anytime they are not seated at their tables, an employees must wear them at all times.We hope you feel safe dining with us!
This eas my first dining experience since February. I’m glad I picked La Trattoria. As always, yhe food was good, the service was great and the ambience was pleasant.
So happy you had a great time dining with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great restaurant. Sat at the front corner seat and watched people fishing from the sea wall while we ate. One caught a three foot barracuda and a three foot shovelhead shark. Great time.
Thanks for the kind words Brian! So glad you enjoyed dinner and the view! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Faced masks were required until we were seated at our table. We were seated immediately with the social distancing between tables. Staff was courteous and prompt. As more people arrived, they opened additional areas for seating so that no area had more than 50% occupancy. Food was delicious and we had a wonderful experience.
Thank you Karen for sharing your feedback. We are doing the best we can to ensure that our guests and employees are safe! Thanks for noticing! We look forward to your next visit!
Food was delicious and our waiter Ruben was attentive and prompt. Atmosphere is one of the best in Key West! Highly recommend this fabulous restaurant.
Thank you so much for the kind words! So happy you had a delightful evening with us and we can't wait to see you again soon!
Good food and service like always.
Thank you kindly for the great review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The escargots are so delicious! The best on the island!
So happy you enjoyed everything! We can't wait to see you again soon! I will pass the compliments onto the chef!
We eat here on virtually every visit to Key West. Given this visit was the end of the first week of the Keys re-opening, La Trattoria did a great job of upholding the standards we have come to expect. This is the second time we brought guests to La Trattoria and we continue to be proud to do so.
Thank you for the kind words Bobby and for joining us dinner again on this visit! Happy you had a wonderful evening and felt safe dining with us! We look forward to your next visit!
I was very pleased with the precautions taken to ensure our safety. Temperature taken, tables distanced apart and everyone waiting on us had mask and gloves. I felt very safe there. Food was great as always.
The safety of our employees and guests is so important to us right now! So happy you enjoyed your dinner and felt safe dining with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Chris the manager checked on us several times. Alenia was excellent and cared for us with charm. Surf was up and we enjoyed sitting next to the beach. We like riding our bikes there.
Thank you for the kinds words, although I do believe this review may have been intended for another restaurant :( Glad you enjoyed your dinner where you dined and maybe we can see you at our home in the future!
Very impressed that La Trattoria was taking temperatures of guests outside the restaurant entrance and requiring masks until seated.
Food was excellent with the one exception that the romaine lettuce in the Caesar salad wasn't crisp and fresh.
Thank you Jack for taking notice to our precautions at this time. Our employees and our guests' safety is so important to us right now. We are sorry about the lettuce and we will look into why it wasn't as crisp as it should be. Thank you for brining that to our attention. We look forward to seeing you again!
It was a lovely relaxing time with delicious food and nice service. Would recommend! It was nice pace to get away from Duval street and see the Atlantic Ocean view.
So happy you enjoyed everything! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We go since a weeks with group of 5.
Thank you Howard! So happy you had a great time :)
The food was subpar, the service was good, the view was the best part. Looking at the ocean while eating is truly amazing.
Thank you Todd for joining us for dinner! So happy to have you come back into our home now that we are open! Thank you for your support!
We were a party of four from Perth Western Australia, all our meals were absolutely delicious.
Service was very attentive and friendly.
Beautiful view of the ocean. Very attentive servers. Food was excellent. Local fish was excellent. Great wine list. Also very good cocktails.
Drinks, food and service were outstanding! Chicken Saltimboca, fettucini alfredo, veal marsala and picatta were all delish. Thank you Trat Oceanside!
Made reservations for birthday, nothing mentioned about it by staff. Asked for window seats, nothing done or said about that. Luckily most seats see the ocean, so that wasn’t an issue.
Received appetizers before cocktails ordered, then received our app with truffle oil all over it after saying we couldn’t have it on our app. Had to wait again.
Good value for the money, but staff are not professionally trained for fine dining. I would not consider this the 4.5 stars it’s professed to be.
I don’t think I would go back given the opportunity.

everything from food, service and atmosphere was excellent. second time in two weeks and both times exceptional.
Thank you Sheila for the kind words! So glad you choose to dine with us and shared your experience with others! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Food not very flavorful.
Thank you for dining with us. Our servers are happy to recommend dishes based on your preference so inquire on our next visit and share your preferences with our servers to find the perfect meal!
Great food! Spectacular ocean view. My husband said the salad was the best he has ever had in a restaurant!
Thank you Linda for choosing to dine with us and for sharing your experience with others! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
A lovely window table looking out on the ocean, delicious food & attentive service—PRICELESS! Always a favorite spot that never disappoints !
Thank you for the kind words and for choosing to dine with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
As a local, one of our favorites. The seafood is very well prepared and not overcooked. I have a sensitive stomach but I always sleep well after dining there, something I can't always say when eating out at some other places. Definitely reccomend.
Thank you for the kind words! So happy you always have a great time dining with us! See you again soon!
Great atmosphere, good service, menu could use some variety and the taste was okay. Good place for a date, but the taste was somewhat lacking. Could use bolder flavors. Wine and apertif selection was good as well
Thank you Matt for dining with us! We look forward to seeing you on your next visit!
Nice basic Italian restaurant.

Good food, wonderful service, a must every year we are in KeycWest
Food is EXCELLENT. Wine portfolio is terrible. I highly recommend this restaurant. Just wish they would match the quality of the food with the quality of the wine.
Thank you Christine for the compliments on our service. I will pass on your kind words to Joshua and our chefs! We carry mostly Italian wines but we do have an ever-changing wine list, so hopefully you find something more suitable on your next visit.
Food was fabulous! Highly recommend the Linguini e Vongole, the best I’ve ever had! Service was superb with friendly, efficient waitress. Also noted manager pitching in to help his wait staff. Enjoying it thoroughly until another patron was seated next to us wearing a cap with a bold political message on it. Because I found the message very offensive, I spoke to manager in hopes he would ask the man to remove his hat. Manager told me that he did not “have a problem with the hat.” Very disappointing.
Otherwise a perfect evening.
Thank you Josephus! So glad you enjoyed your meal and your evening with us. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit!
We waited way too long for our dinners to be served but the food was outstanding
Sorry you had to wait for a while for your dinner. Glad you enjoyed everything! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Loved the Red Grouper special!
Our fish specials are amazing! So happy you enjoyed!
What a delightful place. The tables are arranged so that if it is still daylight you have a great ocean view from everywhere. The service is good as is the food. It is a lovely place for dinner.
So happy you enjoyed your evening with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
This meal and location made our Key West experience extra special!
Customer for over 20 years——always go our of your way for service,etc.
Thank you Jerry for the kind words! So glad you enjoy your time with us and we can't wait to see you again soon!
Food was great! I had fresh snapper and my sister had the hogfish. Excellent sauces. Also a nice fresh green salad. We sat out on the porch overlooking the ocean. Service very friendly and attentive.
Thanks Linn for the kind words! So happy you had a great time!!! We can't wait to see you again soon!
I was surprised this got as good reviews as it did. The cocktails and appetizers were good. The food portions were good, but the food was not very good. I had the pasta pomodora with basil and it was not edible. The tomatoes tasted like they came out of a can with no seasoning whatsoever. My husband had the vitello parmigiana and it was awful, no flavor and his "marinara" had huge chunks of red onion in it.
We love to cook and eat Italian food, so this was extremely disappointing. Service was good and the location and view were excellent.
Thank you Karen for sharing your feedback! Our sauces are made in house fresh daily, sorry they were not to your liking. Glad you had amazing service and enjoyed the view!
A nice quaint spot in Key West. Nice vibe. Belinda was our server and she had an outstanding knowledge of the wine menu and was a great server. Note that if you reserve and choose “outside” it’s still inside but it’s got a better vibe!
Thanks for sharing your feedback and I will pass on your compliments to Belinda and the rest of our crew! We do have patio seating as well if you wish to dine outside next time, just ask :) See you soon!
La Trattoria Oceanside is great for a nice quiet oceanfront setting - food is great - service is good.
Thanks Donald! So happy you had a great evening with us!
Not our first visit and probably not our last. Food was good, especially the Piasiana Salad, which my wife and I shared. They even divided it for us in the kitchen. We overheard the next table doing the same, so it must be a regular thing. I had my regular thing, linguini vongole and my wife had her usual, grouper.
Service was attentive, except the busboy took the salad fork off the plate and placed it on the table. I hate that!
And, of course, we had key lime pie and a single espresso.
Not too bad on the price.
We will return.
Thanks for sharing your experience dining with us! So happy you had a great time and enjoyed everything! We can't wait to see you again soon!
