We always end our Key West trip at La Trattoria ! Delicious cuisine and great for "people watching" from a bar high top ! Ciao'
Celebrated Husband 60th! Requested choc desert
with candle and no singing! Was executed perfectly! waiter and staff very attentive.... perfect Evening and still made it in time for Sunset!
Excellent food and service. They kept the bread and yummy dipping sauce coming while we waited on entrees. I started with a macchiato martini then had lasagna. Both were delicious and the lasagna was a large portion. Sadly there was no room for dessert. The entire staff were very attentive and friendly.
I was with a party of four and everyone but me agreed on 5 stars for every category. I ordered the Veal Parm and it was tough and the temperature was not right. I totally loved everything else as well. We sat at a table outside and enjoyed the people watching and music from Wet T's across the street. I will come back and order something else next time.
Delicious food as always and our waiter , Ahmed , was awesome. Great food, great atmosphere, perfect martini and terrific service what more can you ask for?
We LOVE this restaurant! Have eaten here for years and this visit was better than ever!
Amazing ambiance! Service was wonderful and the food was incredible
The Antipasto plate was very good. The prosciutto was excellent. Great waiter and service
Thank you Ann! Happy you had a nice evening with us! We look forward to your next visit!
Good food and good service. One suggestion... server should let the customer know there is an up charge to substitute small pasta for potato. $8.50
Is significant without not letting anyone know.
Thank you for sharing your feedback. Our servers should have informed you of any upcharges, so for that I do apologize. We will address this issue so that we can avoid any confusion in the future. Thank you!
Very nice atmosphere and courteous staff
We are a very small bistro style area and due to our heat in the Florida Keys, we do often have our AC working on full blast. We are sorry it was a bit noisy to you, but I do thank you for sharing your feedback. We are delighted that you loved your meal and we hope to see you again soon!
Quite disappointed overall. Very loud and noisy. The food is priced rather high and the dishes taste is fair, nothing noteworthy at all considering what you pay. The service was poor. Saw the busboy more than the actual waiter and had to ask the bus boy for a dessert menu and the final check. Key West is wonderful......try one of the local family owned restaurants and not this one.
Hogfish special was a little over cooked. Not typical from our past experiences eating here. But, we plan to return.
Birthday dinner for family member. Ate here in 1997 and again now in 2021; food is just as good as I remembered!
Wonderful Italian restaurant in the classic old town section of Key West. A great selection of dishes with wonderful pastas. If you are up for a good Italian, then put this towards the top of your list. We did not see any outdoor seating. The inside was comfortable and the tables are not crowded into the space.
Thank you Chris! So happy you had a wonderful evening with us! We do have 4 tables set up outside for guests to enjoy right on Duval Street! Thank you for noting our spaced out dining room. We are doing our best to make sure everyone feels comfortable when dining with us!
My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner at La Trattoria on Duval! The bruschetta was delicious, my filet mignon with veggies was seasoned well and cooked to perfection (medium), and my husband raved about his seafood ravioli.
We had an odd experience with the waitstaff though. At first, our server was very attentive and speedy, but towards the end of our meal (and nearly a half an hour after), he just never came back to the table. The restaurant was closing up, and none of the other servers were paying attention that we were the only people left in the restaurant. All of the other tables were completely bussed and cleaned, and we were just....sitting there...waiting. It was very odd. Well, about a half hour after we finished our meal, our server came back, very apologetic, and closed us out. I assume something happened that was out of his control, but it was just an odd experience towards the end there. They could've had another server close us out; we couldn't even get any other staff members to pay attention to us and close us out. That said, we still had a great food experience (and an overall fabulous time in Key West, we're pretty easy-going people) and I'd still recommend the restaurant. It just seemed like the staff had an off night while closing up. :-/
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are happy you enjoyed your meal and we are sorry for the lack of service towards the end of the meal. We appreciate the comments and will aim to correct this issue for you and future guests. We hope to see you again soon!
Have not been to my Fav restaurant in Key West for 5 years and was excited to find that
the food and service is still the best in town! We brought a friend with us to dinner( new property owner in Key West) who raved about the amazing food! Keep up the great work....we will be back!
Thank you Estero! We are so thankful for our repeat guests as well as new ones! Thank you for sharing your favorite restaurant with your friends! We hope they too become regulars! See you again soon!
Last night in Key West, we had to return to this restaurant. We had been years before and had a wonderful experience. It did not disappoint. FIRST, the service was impeccable. We were seated in entry room next to hostess station. She was efficient, pleasant and welcoming to all, even those without a reservation. She worked non-stop. SECOND, the staff was well run. From the water person, to the person who brought bread with delicious oil/balsamic/cheese for dipping, to the servers. Efficient, friendly, and quick with refills of wine, water etc. I hate to put it THIRD, but the FOOD was delicious. The mushroom appetizer was scrumptious and I wish I had ordered two and ate it for my dinner!! My husband had the capers salad, which he thoroughly enjoyed. For dinner we had the chicken parmigiana and the ravioli trattoria. The only thing that was disappointing was we had no room for dessert! Wonderful ambiance. Truly an enjoyable experience
Reservation with Anniversary note , no mention of Anniversary wishes
Excellent food and service in a nice sidewalk setting. Best Osso Buco I have had in a very long time.
I don’t normally write reviews but feel compelled to now. This was arguably one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. In summary, Rolly, the manager leads the restaurant like a rockstar. From service to the food, he and his well trained team were first class. It started with us being confused about the difference between La Trattoria and Virgilios (which opens a bit later). Rolly took charge and opened it for us! He then didn’t pressure us for the reservation time. When seated our primary server was very busy, but his team of Ruben at the helm and others in the team supporting him were amazing. The hostesses were fabulous and fun too! Lastly, the food was 5 star fantastic. Going to Key West, please go to La Tratorria if you like Italian food and good service. Tell Rolly hi for us!
Veal was like rubber. Told the waite was veg good c there
Chris was a great waiter! Loved everything about this place!
Great food and horrible service 40 min to get a drink order
Great dinner from the appetiser through the cannoli. Was nice to get away from the noise of Duval st. And enjoy a great meal. involtini di melanzana could not have been better, just melts in your mouth. The Ravioli Trattoria and Dentice were prepared perfectly and very flavourful. Also a great wine selection. We come back next time we’re in Key West.
Thank you for all the kind words! We are so happy you had a wonderful evening with us and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great as always....
Our server was excellent. He made great recommendations and the food was superb.
Made reservations for night 3 of the trip to have a more calm meal. Calm it was. It was an older crowd. Only reservation was early and the restaurant had a lot of open space. One of our drinks was made incorrectly, and they ran out of veal parmigiana just as we were ordering it. The food was good but not great.
It was my husband's birthday and they comped his dessert and also brought out a sparkler to celebrate!
Thank you Nancy for celebrating with us! We are so happy you had a wonderful celebration with us and we hope to celebrate again next year with you and your husband!
Our server Lola was very odd. Made dinner awkward.
Great place right on Duval. Been going there for years and it continues to maintain its reputation as a first class dining experience.
The seafood ravioli and spaghetti bolognese were excellent. The bottle of Nebbiolo was very good. Great service.
Escargot was excellent
Veal parmigiana was very good
Food was incredible, so was our waiter. Music and ambiance where great. Never had to wait on drinks or appetizers. The espresso martini hit the spot for dessert combined with a piece of cheesecake.
The food has always been consistently delicious each time we have eaten at La Trattoria. Excellent service! Great place to celebrate a special occasion.
Good food, excellent service, would eat here again.
Excellent food and wonderful service.
Small, very busy, and noisy
We found this place due to a cancelled flight and I’m glad we did! Amazing all around!
