you should be able to not order an entree. me and my friends were forced to and i found that a little ridiculous as the food was very expensive and some of us just wanted to have drinks and appetizers.

This place is quite lively on the weekends with fun energy and music while dining. It is definitely an authentic Italian restaurant with strong family ties.

Wonderful food! From appetizers of ravioli, prosciutto and melon, and traditional Caprese salad to entree's of scallops and lobster and traditional veal parmesan. You will feel as if you are in Italy! Their wine selection and limoncello are additionally outstanding. My favorite restaurant in Atlanta!

Went here for my wife's Birthday. Gale, Marco, Giovani and the entire staff were so hospitable! The food was awesome ( Giovani kept bringing some of his own favs to try ) The entire place broke out in an 80's dance all at once! What a blast!

Dinner was authentic Italian. Everyone was warm and welcoming. The bread was fantastic. We shared the antipasto of olives, cheese and pasting. Our table had Cesar salad and mussels. Each very good. The bread was amazing, warm and crusty. We had veal Parmesan , rigatoni boldness, and cioppino. Each of us enjoyed our dinner. The coffee and espresso were good. What eclectic decor in this fun and delicious restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.

The evening was fantastic. When we were first seated it was in the far corner of one
of the back rooms which was very warm. Immediately, we were moved to a much cooler location, The owner came to our table several times to ensure we were having a wonderful experience.

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the Marriot Marquis. It was the perfect place to get together with an old friend and catch up on our lives. We split a salad. It was great. The bread was excellent! Then we each had lobster and spaghetti. It was good, although the red sauce overwhelmed the lobster. And it was messy! But we could have figured that out ahead of time. It was a lovely evening, Service was impeccable. I have already recommended this restaurant to others.

Anniversary-We like everything about Il localino and take friends with us some of the time because it is such a special place. The only problem we have is we only want to eat in the front dining room because that is what makes it the special dining experience with music (YMCA) and the way it is decorated. So when someone makes a reservation they should be told what dining room they will be sitting in.

The restaurant is very fun. They put fun hats on you and play loud music that everyone sings to. Definitely a restaurant to go to if you've been drinking. I had the mussels and they were the worst I've ever had. They just didn't taste fresh or good. My friend had the gnocchi and I tried that. That was really good. I wasn't impressed overall. It was a once and done type of place.

I suspect this restaurant is typically pretty noisy; however, we ended up in a small room in the very back of the restaurant, which I LOVED because we could hear each perfectly and conversation was easy. The food was delicious, the staff took excellent care of us, and I will definitely go back.

We dined at Il Localino on a week night so the restaurant was quiet. It was our first time at the restaurant so we were pleasantly surprised at the decor. The ceiling draws one's eyes up to look at an eclectic array of paper lanterns, pans, chairs with lights twinkling and then the walls have all sizes of framed portraits of family, art, nature, etc. It was a lot of fun yet romantic place to dine. The service was friendly yet professional. The food was outstanding. The portion size was large. For those with small appetites, it would be nice if they added half portions. We had a book signing and lecture to attend at the Carter Presidential Library so it was a perfect location for us.
