Fabulous food that is consistently excellent. We were there for Valentine's Day & it was packed (hence the noise level). Usually though the restaurant is quiet enough for conversation & one of our Key West favorites.

I had the most delicious gnocchi- few restaurants make them correctly but these were light and delicious in a fabulous cream sauce, I would have preferred a lighter sauce but still excellent! Bread fresh and delicious. Our waiter was attentive though the kitchen was a bit slow. Overall - we’d be happy to return!

We received the best Italian food that I have eaten in ages, and having been in Italy for a couple weeks last year, I can say that this food was better than any of the top restaurants I ate in in Italy.
The roof Soto and hog fish that I had were outstanding, my relative had a mixture of seafood, and it also was excellent.

Have been at La Trattoria a few times. This time I ordered the veal Marsala. Hubbie ordered the lasagna. I rate a good veal dish by both tenderness, and flavor. I rate their veal Marsala a high 10 on a ten point scale. Veal was tender, but not mushy. Sauce and flavors very complimentary to the veal. This is our special date night place, when we get a chance to go out.

Had a great dinner here with family recently and everything was delicious, the chocolate martinis were a huge hit! Started off with the bruschetta with buffalo mozzarella (only way to go with this one!) and the ricotta-stuffed eggplant. Everyone loved their entrees and for dessert we shared the creme brûlée (amazing!) and the chocolate (white and dark!) mousse were an awesome ending to the meal. Not to mention you're right across from the water, beautiful view.

Visiting Key West, with a group of 5. We had looked for reviews of Italian restaurants on the key and found this one to be highly rated. We made a reservation and arrived promptly and were seated immediately. We found our waitress to be very knowledgeable and helpful. Busboys were quick to fill water glasses and the bread bowl. Cocktails were mixed very well and generous as they should be at that price. The food was a little long in arriving, but that was blamed on my order of chicken parmigiana having to be baked to order. The food was liked by all, except for the red sauce. We agreed that it was heavy in structure (like being overdone) with one guest saying “that sauce was ready to be served 2 days ago.” Marinara it was not. That aside, everything else was fresh and cooked properly. The atmosphere of the dining room, with a view out to the glimmering sea at dusk was gorgeous. Table linens and all of the proper table settings followed suit. All in all it was a nice experience and would be enjoyed by anyone looking for an upscale night out. Although not inexpensive, your in Key West, roll with it.

A little sketchy at first because our reservation was at 7 and the place was nearly empty. As we ate, the place started to fill up. Food was okay but good for Key West.

We have thoroughly enjoyed discovering the Saturday brunches, and are saddened to hear they won't be doing Sat any longer. But that's ok! We can still go on Sunday! Great food and one of the best views on the island... Perfect!

My friend and I sat for an hour with no word about the entrees we ordered; finally the server strolled over to ask if we wanted to see the dessert menu. When we responded that nothing had been served yet, he started to argue that there were others in front of us. The manager did come by to apologize, which saved the night. When the food finally came, it was very good.

The food was excellent and presented very well. It came out very hot and portions are huge. Great for sharing a meal. It was very flavorful and spiced just right. The bread was fresh and delicious. The salad was fresh and dressing very good. Dessert was great too. Excellent choice for dinner!! Thanks to the entire wait staff and kitchen staff!!

We have been dining here each year when we visit Key West. This year we had an opportunity to try their Sunday brunch and found it to be fabulous!
We were seated promptly and were treated graciously when we asked to change tables.
Service was excellent and the brunch buffet was interesting (with great variety) and bountiful.
