This was one of the finest restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of dinning in. My ONLY hesitation about recommending it highly is that I do not want everyone to learn about it ! I want it to stay, quiet, quaint and excellent ! I cannot say how much I have enjoyed dinning there. I have been there 3 or 4 times and will continue to visit as often as possible. With all that said, it is one of the best restaurants in the world. Great service and great food. The wait staff is outstanding.

We went to Il Localino for Easter Brunch for the first time. It was fantastic! We really enjoyed ourselves. We met the owner who is from Venice, Italy, and had a chance to taste a variety of the offerings. Each selection was delicious! I don't think you can go wrong with anything you order. The restaurant has an intimate feel, even though it is much larger because there are several rooms that make up the entire restaurant.

Female staff had issue with me requesting to box my food and got attitude. Funny... one of the guess at my table did not receive her lobster bisque and spinach after staff boxed food. They had to prepare those items again.

We had a 8:45 reservation. When we got there nobody welcomed us to the restaurant. We had to wait at the bar till our table was ready. Waiters were swamp with tables so the service was not good. The service started to get better when tables started to clear. I was a little disappointed this time and it’s no my first time there.

This place is a hidden gem! We went for Inman Park restaurant week and we were surprised. We walked by the restaurant when we were living in Inman Park while our home was being remodeled/restored and peering in the windows like a child, we thought the place was too small and crowded. The menu was intriguing so we tried it and we LOVE it. The atmosphere is fun. The food is amazing. The restaurant is HUGE!!!!! The staff very friendly, thorough and knowledgeable. Mama Gail is a DOLL! So very wonderful and sweet. The food was prepared with love and served with care. Her wine and drink recommendations were spot on and she knows and loves the history of the restaurant. I can't say enough good things about Il Localino. By the way, Mama Gail - we LOVED the limoncello and especially the presentation. See you again soon!

Parmigiana reggiano, Caprese, Warm crusty bread, Medallions of Filet Mignon, Veal Piccata, Sautéed Mushrooms, Cannoli, Expresso accompanied by a fine Montepulciano! What more could you ask?!

All this plus friendly, considerate, attentive service made for a perfect evening. As on all our previous visits, we left feeling that this was our favorite restaurant in Atlanta . . . or Anywhere! Thank you Localino!

Gale and the folks at Localinos turned a fun night into a perfect night. Spectacular service, great cocktails and wine and an unforgettable meal. This being our first time dining with some friends, we wanted Localinos to really shine. They really did and then some. We enjoyed our meal and stayed until the lights were about to be turned out - without ever feeling rushed. Love this place!!

Service was poor..They were overwhelmed by customers..never checked with us for additional drinks..Reservations at 7:15 didn’t get served our main course until almost 9
One of our party had to send dish back because it was cold.
Had to get up and find servers twice to get drinks and more bread.
Very poor experience..not planning on going back..sad because the atmosphere is nice.
