LaTrattoria Old Town has been serving Authentic Italian cuisine since 1983. This is our original and flagship location located in the heart of Key West at 524 Duval Street. This bistro type setting offers one of the premier intimate settings in the lower keys. All of our entrees are prepared fresh to order using only the freshest of ingredients. Our signature dish, Yellowtail snapper, is locally caught daily and prepared fresh with garlic, capers and tomatoes in a lemon white wine butter sauce--it is to die for. When dinner is over look no further than Virgilios Martini Bar, located directly behind the restaurant. Virgilios offers an extensive Martini menu along with live entertainment 7 nights a week. This sexy speak easy sits just off of Duval street and is for sure to satisfy your pallet with refreshing libations.

Stopped here on a whim after making reservations the night before for our anniversary (we were slacking on making timely reservations). This was a decent spot on Duval (although we prefer places off the beaten path) with reasonably priced Italian food. It was busy for a Saturday but we were sat right away and the service was good. Decent food but nothing to rave about. Complimentary dessert was a nice touch!

A refuge of sanity in the Key West Hustle. Quiet, romantic, great food and service. Italian favorites music playing softly in background. Escargots, and Snapper dish were outstanding. Social Distancing measures were not intrusive. They were maintained but not distractive. Everything looked ",normal."

We dined in on Saturday 6/27th at Trattoria Old Town, they were having issues with the air conditioning! The restaurant was terribly hot on a 100 degree Summer Saturday night! We did not enjoy our dinner due to the hot environment indoors🥵it was way to hot and the food was not as good as we expected, too many issues to give Trattoria a better review

We have eaten here 3 times in the last 2 months. The first two were quite good, but last night the fish special was only average at best. It was slightly overcooked and did not have the flavor that the other meals I have had there had. My wife's Zuppa di Pesce was very good.

We had a reservation made several weeks before. We arrived on time. We were nicely dressed 70-year-olds. The hostesses led us to a table in the back by the entry and exit from the kitchen and viewing the staff workstation. There were many other empty tables. We asked if we could have a nicer table and they said they were very booked so we said we would leave. They were difficult but then decided they could find us another table which they did. Still near the entry to the kitchen but at least with a pleasant view towards the restaurant instead of looking at at the messy work area. As we watched people come in they sat other parties of two at tables for four in much nicer locations. Some of these people were wearing T-shirts and shorts and not at all nicely dressed. We did have a very good waiter and the food was good but I doubt we would return.
