Had a wonderful Valentines Day dinner. Food, service, and overall ambiance were very good. Having been to Italy this past summer, the food accurately represented authentic Italian cuisine. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

The ambience is inviting and tastefully appointed. The food was so good it was worth a repeat visit the next night. The highlight of our experience was without a doubt our server Katherine! Her personality is warm and welcoming and she is at the top of her game. She is a huge asset to the staff all of whom were pleasant and professional. The whole place ran like a very well oiled machine. Keep up the good work and thank you!

This was our 4th visit to this establishment and as each time before, we were very satisfied with our dining experience. Each person in our party of four ordered something different off the menu and we were all equally pleased with our choice! Whenever we visit Key West we ask ourselves what was the best meal we had during our visit. La Trattoria always ranks at the top.

This was a second visit - we are out-of-towners - we had visited Key West a couple of years ago and happened to dine at La Trattoria Old Town and found it to be very fine. Especially the white table cloths and napkins with servers who were appropriately dressed. We had a wonderful server (female) and she took excellent care of us along with her helpers. The food was excellent and it was a gracious and enjoyable evening. We hope to get back to Key West and certainly to La Trattoria Old Town.

The food was great as well as the service. My wife's gnocchi was delicious and perfectly prepared. My arrabbiata was good but a little too spicy for me. Next time I'll ask for a milder version.

Had a great time and would definitely come back! Our server anticipated our needs and was very attentive. He made strong recommendations on menu items which my wife and I both appreciate. The ossobuco was phenomenal and so tender I never needed my knife. The ambiance was a bit louder but in an absolutely pleasant way. This is Key West after all, and a Friday night and everyone was having fun.

I booked this restaurant as we were staying in key west for a few days. On the Open Table reservation it had asked if our reservation was a "special occasion" and had a box to fill in some text. So it was for my fiances birthday, and in the text box I wrote, " Happy Birthday Shellie". When we got the there, the hostess asked if it was someone's birthday, and I said it was. If they're going to ask if it's a special occasion, they should do something.... maybe a slice of cake or something...something with a little more acknowledgement. We heard an announcement over their loudspeaker acknowledging someone else's birthday, but not at our table. They did absolutely nothing, the waitstaff said nothing. Don't ask if you will not do anything. The food was bland at best. I would not go there or recommend it. Thanks for the opportunity to review!

Great table and service was excellent. Lola allowed us to catch up with friends. Although the din became a near shouting match, we managed. Lastly, the consistency over the years have been good, but tonight it seem to be a bit lack luster tonight.
