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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
