The food was amazing but most of all Giovanni and his staff made our experience exceptional! We ate every last bite from the bread to dessert.

Excellent dining experience including the variety of appetizers, entrees, sorbet, desert, and cocktail/wine selections!! Very sound COVID precautions — masking requirements of customers and staff, and distancing of tables.

Where can I begin???? This was by far one of if not the best restaurants I have ever dined at in Atlanta. The exemplary service was welcoming and it felt more like I was welcomed into someone's home instead of a place of business. My guests and I were complimented, doted on and made to feel like our patronage was appreciated and matter. The owners and staff I cannot say enough about. They were ABSOLUTELY the best. The food was impeccable, festive and lively atmosphere only added more to this wonderful experience.
This was a WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE. This was my first time but it will definitely not be my last. Thank you to the owners, the staff and the amazing chef(s) for making this superb dining experience!

What a great experience! Charming restaurant with engaged owners. The ambiance is spectacular and the food is delicious. We have always been treated like family. The service staff are well heeled, perfectly absent, and always there when needed. This is an Atlanta institution. Go eat!!

We enjoyed the Halloween pre fix menu for $50 a person. We started with their fresh warm bread and the shaved Parmesan, homemade pesto, and marinated olives. Then we had salads - Caesar and seasonal greens. Then the lemoncello pallet cleanser. Then the pumpkin ravioli and gnocchi with vodka sauce. Finally the dessert sampler which included cheesecake, chocolate torte, chocolate gelato, and tiramisu. It was all phenomenal. Service was impeccable. Ambiance was so fun. They even gave us roses after our check!

If you haven’t been here, make sure this is your next reservation. I’ve been going here for years - it’s authentic, it’s delicious, it’s the best Italian in Atlanta! The owners are amazingly sweet people who care about your experience! It’s a one of a kind. Date night, huge dinner with friends or family - this won’t disappoint!

Any time you dine with Mama Gale & Giovanni is a special occasion but last night was magic. The food is AKWAYS delicious- a symphony of flavors. It doesn’t matter what you order, it will be the best. We enjoyed clams & shrimp oregano (special request) pasta Sinatra, lobster feast Diablo, snapper (the special, and eggplant parmigiana. The ambiance is unmatched. The perfect place for everything.

After 22 years living in Atlanta and all the restaurants that have come and gone, Il Localino is a classic and never disappoints. You can always count on a GREAT meal in a fun atmosphere. It’s one of a kind in every way. The service is unbeatable and the food unsurpassed regardless of what you order.

Had my 30th birthday here and they were so accommodating and understanding and attentive. The owner came and spoke to us several times for our large party. They were amazing and the food and drinks were SPECTACULAR! Special thanks to Gale for her help with everything from the reservation to the service at the restaurant. Beautifully decorated and I will definitely be back!

One of my absolute favorite local restaurants in Atlanta. The food is beyond delicious - the bread, parmesan cheese appetizer, house special of homemade lobster ravioli and cannoli dessert - all so so good. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Staff is super friendly, attentive and wonderful and it truly is a one-of-a-kind dining experience!

Me and my two best friends decided to get together for dinner and wanted to try a new local spot in the city. Il Localino did not disappoint. We were actually very impressed with this cute quaint hidden gem. I’m actually upset I’ve never been before tonight. The service was spectacular, so attentive and Prof. Giovanni was ever so charming. Everyone took great care of us. The cocktails were also some of the best. Definitely try the “smoked honey” and “naked and famous” if you like mezcal. Lastly, the food, I had the gnocchi in vodka sauce and my friends had the rigatoni, overall 10/10.
