Had my 30th birthday here and they were so accommodating and understanding and attentive. The owner came and spoke to us several times for our large party. They were amazing and the food and drinks were SPECTACULAR! Special thanks to Gale for her help with everything from the reservation to the service at the restaurant. Beautifully decorated and I will definitely be back!

One of my absolute favorite local restaurants in Atlanta. The food is beyond delicious - the bread, parmesan cheese appetizer, house special of homemade lobster ravioli and cannoli dessert - all so so good. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Staff is super friendly, attentive and wonderful and it truly is a one-of-a-kind dining experience!

Me and my two best friends decided to get together for dinner and wanted to try a new local spot in the city. Il Localino did not disappoint. We were actually very impressed with this cute quaint hidden gem. I’m actually upset I’ve never been before tonight. The service was spectacular, so attentive and Prof. Giovanni was ever so charming. Everyone took great care of us. The cocktails were also some of the best. Definitely try the “smoked honey” and “naked and famous” if you like mezcal. Lastly, the food, I had the gnocchi in vodka sauce and my friends had the rigatoni, overall 10/10.

My fiancé and I went for my birthday and since Covid we never really celebrated our engagement. This was the perfect spot to celebrate each other altogether. The decor is both beautiful and fun. The staff was wonderful, and very attentive. Food was super, and the music was perfect! Their cocktails are very good too! Thank you forever Il Localino!

Our son just moved to the neighborhood and we were fortunate to find IL Localino for the family to celebrate his new apartment. From the moment we arrived, we were incredibly impressed with the service -- everyone we encountered was genuine, attentive, and incredibly knowledgeable. We felt we were welcomed like family.

Dr. K, the talented and charming bartender, got us started with delicious and inventive cocktails, all of which were generous pours and moderately priced. The menu had so many amazing options -- all five of us ordered something different and no one was disappointed. The lobster bisque was the BEST that I've ever had, anywhere, hands down. And my daughter and husband haven't stopped talking about the amazing Cannoli, which they both swore was the most delicious dessert they've enjoyed in a very long time.

In short, we've found our new favorite place and will be back every time we visit Atlanta.

One of my favorite restaurants. Recommended to me by a friend a few years ago while I was in town and absolutely loved it. Decided to make a weekend trip to Atlanta to celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend and had to have dinner at Il Localino. The staff are fantastic and friendly, the food is delicious (my favorite Italian and only good Italian I’ve had in the south so far) and cute eclectic decor. Being from Pittsburgh I’m used to being around a lot of good authentic Italian food. After moving to Nashville in 2016 I’ve had a hard time finding anything similar. Il Localino knocks it out of the park!

The owner Gayle was pleasant and nice as well as the staff. She sent out a great plate of olives, pesto and parmesan that was DELICOUS!

The appetizer of Calamari was plain, literally tasted of crisp breading and air. I added a lot of lemon and salt to give it flavor and avoid sending it back.

I am a Cesar salad lover, and this one was well disappointing. The dressing did not taste of a made in house Cesar lacking garlic and anchovies. It was rather sweet. The Caprese was alright.

The Chicken Parmesan was amazing and the Alfredo good.

Disappointed that it was a Birthday of which I made note and mentioned and there was no candle etc.
