Fun atmosphere and great food. Beware of where you are seated. If you’re seated in the front on the right side you will be screaming all night.

The restaurant only has one speaker and they blast music all night. The music is great and theoretically fun but if you’re in direct line of the speaker you can’t hear yourself think let alone talk.

We asked to turn the music down several times but each time the song changed the volume went right back up.

Next time I’ll make sure to ask to request a seat location.

Il Localino is a unique gem. The neighborhood is charming and interesting, the decor is wild and fun, the atmosphere is lively and the food is good, old-school Italian done in the best way. The servers are knowledgable, professional and friendly, the salads are fresh and delicious and it's easy to see why this restaurant has many neighborhood regulars as well as is a knowledgable concierge's top recommendation for out-of-towners.

Dining room is charming! Unfortunately that’s were it ends. Food,service, table size (too small for 4 people,) all not good. They turned the music up so loud at 7:00 it was ridiculous! Dinner meat was tough! (Osso buco should fall off the bone) whole fish fried small amount of meat. Service was surly. Sadly we will not return.

AMAZING establishment. We make it a mission to visit this restaurant everytime we are in town. I have been to hundreds of Italian restaurants across the country and Il Localino is in my top three favorites!!! That's saying a lot considering I live in Boston!!! Try it - you will NOT be disappointed!!!

Great Atlanta restaurant, their food is comparable to any restaurant I have been to in Boston's North End. Excellent Italian food, service was great, nice ambiance. We went there for their Easter Lunch from the appetizer to the dessert everything was delicious. The shrimp fra diavolo was outstanding. Will definitely return to try more menu items.

Il Localino proved to be a smart choice for treating a special out-of-town friend to dinner. The place is compact but comfortable. We had a corner table and although the place filled up rather quickly and around 9PM, 70's disco music (yes, in an Italian restaurant) rang out rather loudly, we were still able to carry on a decent conversation. Music prior to the "witching hour" was more sedate (ala 40's jazz -- think Sinatra & Martin. We ordered and enjoyed Italian classics (chicken and veal parmigiana, & scampi), had a nice plate of olives, pesto and Reggiano Parmigiano along with house salads -- ample and tasty. The wine list was excellent and martinis were prepared exactly as ordered. Wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive. Entre pricing was consistent with other local Atlanta Italian restaurants so no surprises there, We recommend Il Localino for a special occasion. There seemed to be a fair amount of celebrations happening table to table.

I have been to Il Localino's going on six times now. The food never disappoints and the atmosphere is even better. With music, lights and a real disco vibe this is just not your typical restaurant...it is truly an experience. Owners, Gale and Giovanni, are so gracious and take care of you like family.

Whenever we have friends in town or just want to have a night to remember we will only go to Il Localino's!

What an experience! In my opinion a trip to Il Localino is a not to be missed, its a local institution. The owners and staff are charming and engaging, the decor is wild, and the music is great. The food was good but not fantastic. Every one should go at least once, like Mary Mac's, Fox Bros BBQ and Sweet Water Brewery

Again another gratifying evening with the staff at Il Localino. Marco (head waiter) was on his mark. He provided attention to our needs and is always the professional. Food again was awesome. My wife was able to get something that was not on the evening menu with the suggestions from Marco. She had the snapper and it was cook to perfection. Giovanni was the host of hosts. Making us feel as if we were part of his family. Gail was busy at the tables and it seems that this is a family affair and they provide the accommodations and the ambiance of a cherished evening.

Restaurant made us get up for our table mid dessert so they could seat another reservation. It took them at least 35 min to take our food order, so I don’t feel it was our fault if we ran long on our reservation.

Loved the authentic atmosphere, bread and pasta! We had champagne on the house for our 5th wedding anniversary, definitely a nice surprise! I rated 4 stars for value due to the high price of small cocktails. We will definitely be back!

Wow! Save the travel cost and get a taste of Italy at IL Localino! Other than the old photographs of American celebrities on the wall, this place screams Italy. The service is wonderful and diverse, including greetings/service from the owners and a variety of staff. The attention is warm and sincere!

And then there’s the food. My spouse and I had the Rigatoni Bolognese. It was by far the best we’ve had! We can hardly wait to return and do a little more damage to our wallets:)
