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.

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.

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.

Great waiter, but I can't recall his name. Gray hair, medium height in his 50s. The bread and oil were very good. I'm from the Northeast, so I think that's a compliment. I had gnocchi and they were good, but not great. My date's chicken piccata was better than my gnocchi. The desserts even though made in-house, were just ok. The tiramisu was a bit too wet and bland. The cream in the cannoli was good, but the shells were not made correctly. They should be pretty crunchy and thin, but they were thick and not crunchy.

This is one of our favorites in Key West, the bar is perfect for a nice martini before dinner, and the food is delicious. I had the Tortellini Romana and my wife had the veal Marsala. Both were prepared perfectly, the pasta was al dente, and the veal as tender as I've had anywhere.
This is a gem, and a must whenever we are in town.
