Best Italian spot in Atlanta, hands down. Truly a hidden gem, great for any occasion! Owners are there every night, touching tables and getting to know their guests.

I am very picky with Italian restaurants and this one rose through the ranks. The people working were wonderful, the bread, soup and pasta were delicious as was the tiramisu, We will definitely be coming back!

Trite menu, average food at too high a price point with an overtly sexist waiter. There are better Italian options less than a mile away.

The hospitality, food (appetizers, entrees, and desserts), and wines were very good. The Wine Steward made good recommendations and we enjoyed multiple bottles. Every time I'm in Atlanta, I look forward to a visit here.

I'd been wanting to try Il Localino for some time given many positive reviews I've read. The food was actually very good, although quite expensive....especially appetizers and salads! We did enjoy many of the unique dishes and preps but at the end of the day their prices were near top of the mark. Very unique atmosphere but music got very loud until we asked to have it toned down some, and it went back up after awhile! Service was average to inattentive, especially for the price. Probably will not be in our regular rotation from an overall value perspective, but again, food was very good.

Exceptional food, service and ambiance. Truly an experience. Everything from the homemade outrageous bread to the homemade garlic butter is excellent: then onto the fabulous lobster fra diavolo outstanding. Really a special place.

Absolutely fell in love with this place and the staff! Perfect place for a celebration. It was pricey and keep in mind the entrees come alone with all sides a la carte, so the total can definitely climb fast with all the yummy authentic options. Food is definitely fresh, I had the Gnocchi with was the pasta only and definitely delicious. Nice serving to for sure fill you up along with the fresh bread delivered to the table with freshly made garlic butter. The decor was unique, homey and comfortable. Felt like we entered another world full of good spirits and vibes as the entire restaurant sang along to YMCA during dinner. Random fun hats 🎩 started being passed out to dinner guest by staff as we all ate, some danced around and sing along it was a unique awesome experience. I believe it was the owner walking around with a beautiful Italian accent speaking to all guest with an amazing personality, he was the icing on the cake. It was my son’s 22nd birthday, he loved it and we definitely left feeling like we exited a little world where everyone that entered was then apart of this sensational good vibe while we dined. I recommend anyone to come just prepare for the slightly pricey menu and a la carte sides BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT! I can’t wait to surprise someone else with this little jewel of happiness on Highland. My best reference is great food with a Mary Poppins experience and all good vibes! Try it! Not sure if every night is like that but I’m soooo appreciative we got to experience it. My son LOVED his birthday dinner.

Came here for my 30th birthday and had a BLAST. The owner, Gio, is so lovely and showered us with all kinds of extra goodies. The staff is incredibly attentive and food is to die for!!! They even gave me a sparkly hat to wear for my birthday. I loved it. Soundtrack was on point too.. Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Village People. Such a fun place to have a special meal, night out with friends or date night. Highly suggest!!!

Over the last 20 years, we have dined here when going to Horizon theater. The food is always good and the atmosphere is fun and kitschy. The prices, however, have gone up so very much, that this restaurant is no longer in range with other god Italian restaurants in the city.
$16.50 for a small salad or $14.00 soup as an appetizer is overpriced. The entrees are also about $4-$5 overpriced each. We noticed that other diners still received a tasting of sorbet as an intermezzo, we did not. Other tables were offered specials and mushroom cart appetizers, we were not.
Although tasty, they have just out priced themselves in my opinion. Such a shame as the food is delicious and the owner is a charming host.

Very fun atmosphere with a side of romance. Garlic butter was amazing first of, with the warm bread. Vast wine selection. I enjoyed a classic Old Fashion made perfectly. My lamb wall fall off the bone. The waiter brought me extra, they want you to eat! It’s was fun start to the night. Definitely returning.

I went to IL Localino for my 30th birthday & it was fabulous! I thoroughly enjoyed the family vibe and will definitely be back here for more. I ordered the gnocchi & my date had chicken Alfredo - both so delicious! We shared the chocolate lava cake with chocolate gelato, I’d come back just for that ! 10/10 recommend.

Chaotic and confusing with poor service. The only time we were attended to was with frequent attempts to upsell. No one bothered to ask how the food was, or to refill water. Alternately shushed for having conversations and told not to be “too serious”. We will stick to La Grotta.
