Absolutely tremendous experience here. Food was spectacular. I’d probably order something different next time, considering I ordered filet medallions at an Italian restaurant; however, all other items were stupendous.

Atmosphere is incredible—great music selection that allows easy conversation. One of the best restaurant quaint atmospheres in the city. Definitely recommend.

Restaurant is much larger than it first appears. The food was very good but I felt the appetizers, sides, desserts, and wines were somewhat overpriced. Service was good and "the hat parade" made things interesting. Would be excellent if they reduced prices on "extras" just a little

The service was amazing! They really made us feel very special. The food was outstanding! The menu is a bit pricy for what you get but from the service to the ambiance, it was well worth the price for special occasions. Note: it is a very cramped restaurant but it makes a great atmosphere.

By far the best /my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. A hidden gem. Food great. Atmosphere, you'd have to go to an Italian restaurant in Soho to find it's equal. To fully experience it, as to be seated in the front of the restaurant. If you go it will be your favorite and you will bring out of town guests to this restaurant.

Wonderful dinner, but they turned up the music when it got later and it was too loud to talk. Luckily that was toward the end of our dinner so we left soon after. The food was great though!

The food was EXCELLENT. Atmosphere is fun and eclectic, with paper lanterns everywhere. Homemade pastas were exceptional as were the sauces. We had short rib ravioli, fettuccine Alfredo and spaghetti with meatballs. Cannolis were very good too. Will definitely return next time we are in Atlanta.

We drive over from Birmingham a few times a year and always eat at this energized and lovely restaurant. The food is delicious and the specials are inventive. The owner, who is from Venice, and his wife are lovely. The staff is incredibly attentive and fun- they will bring silly hats for you to wear at your table. I cannot say enough about this wonderful restaurant!

Been wanting to check out Il Localino for months and finally made it! Had an 8:30 reservation we arrived on time for and then waited... for 45 minutes before our table was ready. Then we got to our table and waited... for about 10 more minutes while no one acknowledged or greeted us-- so I got the attention of another server who then said they would send over someone. So realistically an hour after our reservation time, we were greeted and could order ---which we were ready to do since we were so versed in the menu at this point. We started with the arugula salad with burrata and calamari and then had eggplant parm and chicken parm for our entrees.... It was delicious but the service was not super fantastic. Overall, I still enjoyed our time there and would recommend the restaurant-- but more for a group because the loud music & prop hats (which was cute but not for our date night) --my boyfriend and I could barely hear each other-- but I would certainly preface my recommendation with the food is better than the service.
