Fantastic experience as always. Have been about 10-12 times and it’s been amazing each time. Owners / chefs both came around to check on every table - service was fantastic, along with such good food. 10/10 recommend!

We went here for a birthday party. Several of us had never been before. Everything was excellent. The atmosphere is amazing. The owners were so nice. The service was great, and the food was great. I can't wait to go back.

Il Localino is a gem for both the delicious, authentic Italian delights and the most friendly atmosphere in Atlanta. You will feel like you've always been a regular customer, with staff eager to make your visit a memorable evening. The Anniversary celebration menu was outstanding: entree choices for vegetarians and meat eaters alike, plus small (but not tiny!) portions of appetizer, salads and dessert to round out a perfect dinner.

This is our new favorite place to celebrate birthdays! The service is great and the atmosphere feels like a party! We absolutely love it and have gone for the last two years for my birthday. My only negative was that I ordered the carbonara and their version is more like an alfredo- if I had known that I would have ordered something else. But we had the most delicious appetizers so I had already had plenty to eat- the waiter could not have been nicer or more acommodating- he wanted to bring me a different entree but I was already full. This did not take away from the overall enjoyment of the evening though!

Extremely friendly and efficient staff. The owner mingles with the diners. Feels like being in New York...

Small unassuming and most unusual decor. Definitely plan ahead and make reservations...

My wife had the apricot glazed scallops and I tried My Cousin Vinnies seafood mix.

We will go back

While the food was very good, the deafening disco music that begins at 9:00pm made it impossible to hear anything our dinner companions said across our table for four. It's fine to be quirky with the hats and decorations, but the noise level ruined our evening.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We try to go at lease once a month as we are never disappointed. The staff is so much fun and the food is excellent. Like a step into a NY Italian restaurant. Could not recommend highly enough.

The food as always was amazing! For this night, they appeared short handed and service was exceptionally slow. We love Il Localino, but wish they would adapt there wine policy to be more like other great Atlanta restaurants and have a more reasonable corkage policy.

We went to Il Localino on a bachelorette trip. It was absolutely the highlight of our trip! I will 100% be returning the next time I'm in Atlanta. The food and atmosphere were amazing! Mama Gale treated us like royalty. Thanks for such a wonderful experience!

We went to Il Localino for my sister’s 30th birthday! What an amazing experience! We loved the fun atmosphere and the delicious food! The service was outstanding too.
We enjoyed the mushrooms, caprese salads, meatballs for our appetizer. We then enjoyed sole, eggplant parmesan and Bolognese pasta. We enjoyed the limoncello too! The music and fun hats added to the fun! We loved every minute and we will be back! This is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta!
