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!

Il Localino is a family favorite. The food is delicious. The service is outstanding- I always feel like you are treated as being special. The owner comes to the table and greets you with a warm welcome. The dinner standouts-veal osso buco, pasta bolognaisse, chicken parmigiana, red snapper in champagne sauce.

We had the absolute best dining experience. The atmosphere is amazing, the food incredible, and the owner and his wife made us feel so special! If you choose to eat here you will not be disappointed. Every dish delighted our taste buds! We will definitely be back.

PS I highly recommend the chef’s special whatever it may be...

If you’re looking for authentic Italian food... look no further than Il Localino... everything is prepared to perfection under the watchful eye and guidance of Giovanni… this is not your restaurant chain Italian food… this is a family-owned classic Italian restaurant in the style any restaurant you go into in Italy... mama Gale makes sure the Service is impeccable and all your needs wants and desires are fulfilled! The wine selection is over-the-top… Including after dinner cordials of lemoncillo and grappa. You will not find better Italian food in Italy!!… It has no equal in Atlanta!

The food is good. The service was the worst we have possibly ever experienced. The first waiter neglected to put in our order. The older man, maybe the owner, finally, after 45 minutes, brought one of us something we did not order and neglected to tell us it was "on the house". Two of the entrees finally came after over an hour and one of them never came. That was after we asked if we could split two entrees and the same older man said we could but would be charged for three entrees. So we ordered three and the third never arrived. They did bring us a fish dish which we never ordered so we ultimately split two dishes.
The older man was rude, disinterested and he, together with two waiters, made this perhaps the worst dining experience any of us have ever had.
'It was absolutely terrible and and we will not ever go back to this restaurant. The older man needs an "attitude adjustment" as well.

Great atmosphere but absolutely horrible service. Had to ask multiple times for a waiter to come over to order our food after being seated for 45 plus minutes. Food was ok but certainly not as good as other Italian restaurants at the same price point in the area. While the atmosphere great, I unfortunately would not come back or recommend to a friend.

Poor service from waiting staff. Food was overpriced for quality. We were really looking forward to hats being bright out for our group as we were celebrating a birthday and they never brought them out until the very end after our request several times. The owners are very sweet and make the experience fun!

Owner (male host) came to the table way too many times for what he thought was friendly chatter. I was there with friends (both times this happened) but he must have come to our table 15 times! Some of his humor was dry, borderline not funny. His intentions were well but slightly overbearing.
