This was our first trip to Il Localino, and it definitely will not be our last. Everything from the atmosphere to the food was excellent. Marco was our server and he was wonderful! My boyfriend left his phone at the table and Marco met us outside with it. The entire staff was great, which made the experience even more fun!

As a native New Yorker, finding authentic Italian food in Atlanta is a little bit of a mission. Il Localino is one of the few places that more than qualifies. The food is high quality and excellently prepared. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive and the ambiance is unique, but very pleasant for a night out. My wife and I eat here every 2-3 months and always enjoy it immelsely

On Saturday, October 13th, my husband and I chose to have dinner early, a perfect time to appreciate the music (the American songbook and the sounds of the 1960s) and a relaxed atmosphere. The food is attractively-plated and delicious. Recommend the Fried Calamari with Marinara, the Scallopini of Veal in Champagne Sauce with Mushrooms Dolce Latte, the Spaghetti and Meals (It may sound ordinary, but comfort food so wonderfully prepared is anything but.), and the Tiramisu. A nice touch was the Lemon Sorbet as a palate cleanser. Il Localino’s Lemon Sorbet is also served as a dessert, and I would highly recommend it. It truly has the taste of lemon. If you are so inclined, my husband enjoyed his Cucumbertini, and we both enjoyed Montepulciano (a charming hill town set in the Sienna province in Tuscany) red wine. Last, but not least, Mr. Marco, the Server, excels in his profession, making the dining experience perfect. For Italian dining with food, service and atmosphere that hit all the right notes, Il Localino is the place.

It was a double date for my boyfriend’s birthday. No one in the party had been before. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The owner (I think?) came to the table and chatted with us, which set the tone for a very welcoming atmosphere. For dessert they sang Happy Birthday and brought us complimentary shots! The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. The food was absolutely fantastic. We had a great time and will be returning again!

Asked several times for our food which had been taken to be placed in a box, but were told to wait. After 30 minutes of waiting and asking for the food we’d paid for, we left.

Not our first bad experience. There’s usually something that sucks regarding service, but the food, wine, and atmosphere is always amazing.

I know the owner would be distressed by our experience; and we will go back - it’s too much fun, but you gotta be a shark with those waiters. I’ve been duped into ordering something more expensive, been ignored, and have been disregarded once the bill is paid. I just don’t recommend it to others anymore.

Fantastic food, great atmosphere, service was spot on. Owner came by the table several times and had the opportunity to talk to him - he was warm and cared about the experience. I don't get to Atlanta but 2 to 3 times a year - we try to make it there when we come into town. Highly recommend for a local jewel.

Crowded popular Italian been around for 20 years. Had one glass of rose, one Cesar that was soggy with heavy dressing, nice Proscuito with Mellon, chicken dish not great, very tasty prime steak special, molten cake for $165 plus tip. Lots of garlic and black pepper. Room was chilly up front. Regulars seem to prefer the back room. Bring your own tea and hopefully there won’t be a $35 corkage fee. For it.

What a gem! This place is an amazing experience - great food, excellent service and an enchanting atmosphere. It’s much larger than it appears from the outside too. It’s fun and vibrant, in a very authentic way. I loved the food too. Had a wonderful caprese salad to start, and then the chicken Parmesan. The warm fresh bread was also excellent.
