We are locals in the Keys and first time visiting La Trattoria. We were unimpressed with the espresso martinis, but the lead bartender made it right and made us new drinks that were better. We were served cold bread, asked for warm, and they brought us warm. The antipasto tray was average. What made up for all of this was the tortellini with Parmesan sauce, peas and ham. It was fabulous. We were happy with the wine selection😀 Veal Marsala was also excellent. Was nice that they had a kids half pasta portion but wish they would have meatballs for children.

Very beautiful restaurant located on the NW corner of Sunset Key. Arrive on island by way of short 5 minute water ferry ride from Key West.
Outside seating and indoors. Outside palm trees have white lights strung around them. Great view of the ocean from our table!
Mixed drinks were well made and had good flavor with some less traditional options on the menu. The food was also very good and artistically presented. I very much enjoyed the yellow tail snapper and my wife liked her blackened grouper sandwich! A surprisingly great side was the jerk potato salad which had great flavor and was unique.
Also recommend taking a walk around the resort section of this island after your meal prior to returning to the ferry. The resort also has their own section of beach.

My wife and I have been to LA Trattoria a number of times now as it is one of our favorite restaurants. We recently went with an old friend as his companion and shared a wonderful meal. Everything on their menu is excellent! I had my favorite Fettuccine Alfredo only this time I added chicken. My wife had Linguini with chicken and loved it. The service is first rate too!

Such a disappointment!!
Came here with high hopes after looking at other diner’s reviews and the great menu. Service was Terrible!! Waitress was inattentive, barely visible and made numerous mistakes with zero accountability or apology. Appetizers took 40 minutes and then were wrong and never corrected or apologized for. Had to ask another waiter in the area for water refills, plates cheated and check. We spent over $250 for mediocre food abs pathetic service. What a disappointment, especially on the first day of a a New Year. Many, many better options in Key West!

No finer Italian food on Key West! The crew here gets it! Super COVID friendly. The staff bends over backwards for you. Not uncommon for the actual Chef to come visit your table. Love Love Love this restaurant. Had so much fun writing this review, making another reservation as soon as I'm done!!

The food was very average. We went Christmas Day for dinner and the service was very good. We ordered spaghetti Bologna’s, fettuccini Alfredo and seafood ravioli. The ravioli was the best of all 3. My kids (young adults) did not care for their meals.

Mexican waiter in Italian restaurant with ingredients in Italian: total disaster when seeking advice. Then he repeatedly ignores our table and we twice have to yell at him to request more drinks or assistance. Unpleasant experience. Food good but not worth the price.

The food was very good although didn’t get salad dressing on side as requested and each of us couples shared our salads . In the past you would bring out on separate plates . We were not offered additional plates so we used our bread plates. Our waiter was busy and in past visits didn’t have to ask for water refills or try to get plates or attention , didn’t get offered Parmesan cheese either. It was busy for a 545 reservation but it was Labor Day weekend. We thought as locals going out early we’d be able to enjoy a more quiet dinner but I did some big tables there that night. It got very loud but we understand and trying to support our local folks . Although not our best experiences we will return again.
