Too dark in there to read your menu. A big group was seated nearby that acted like they were the only ones in the restaurant. I wanted a nice dinner in which I could hear my husband talk to me. Food was great and our server was excellent.

Classic Italian cuisine. FANTASTIC flavors. The wait staff was excellent across the board -- from greeting upon entry, to drinks, knowledge of the menu items and preparation techniques, to wine pairings. Coupled with attentive, but not obtrusive, service throughout the meal. Hogfish special, Oso bucco, veal marsala -- all HIGHLY recommended. I look forward to future visits to Key West so I can explore the menu more.

We had dinner reservations for Mother’s Day. It was extremely busy, and our poor waiter was running around like crazy. I think they may have been understaffed. It took 30 minutes for our cocktails to come. My mojito was not good. I ordered the seafood ravioli and it was delicious. My husband ordered the special which was a chicken cordon bleu. He thought it was a bit dry. Overall it’s a nice restaurant, but probably not anyplace we would make a special effort to go back to.

I would certainly recommend this restaurant. Service and food was excellent.
Correction: I didn’t realize that we got attacked/bitten by No-See-Um while dining outside until the following day after writing review. Employees lite candles on deck but by then we were bitten. I blame the restaurant since they should have know they have a No-See-Um issue at dusk on the patio.

Excellent dining experience. A bit of drive if you’re staying downtown and want the Duval ambience. If you want a very good, quiet diner with a great view of the ocean, then make La Trattoria your choice.

Thank you for making the trip to New Town to dine with us. We do also have a location on Duval Street with the same menu (a bit more of a bistro style in regards to seating). We love that we can offer both downtown and new town dining for all our visitors! We can't wait to see you on your next visit!

This was hard to give a fair rating. We had a table of 4. Husband and I had the hogfish special. Our guests had regular menu items. My husband really liked his and funny, it did not excite me. The rice reminded me of a box rice, green beans were scant and a bit dehydrated. The male guest said it was good but was disappointed because he could've sworn he ordered something different and we agreed with him. The female guest said she would go back but not order the same thing. The two men had dessert, Tiramisu, and of course loved it. I had the "locally made" lemon sorbet, but I admit I couldn't eat most of it as it was too sweet and pucker effect (hey it's lemon!). We will still go back as the view and live pianist is great and we've had good meals there before.

The Snapper Mediterraneo was fantastic. I substituted a side of linguine for the rice with no problem. Wife had Spaghetti Bolognese, and loved it. Great view of the ocean.
