Crowded popular Italian been around for 20 years. Had one glass of rose, one Cesar that was soggy with heavy dressing, nice Proscuito with Mellon, chicken dish not great, very tasty prime steak special, molten cake for $165 plus tip. Lots of garlic and black pepper. Room was chilly up front. Regulars seem to prefer the back room. Bring your own tea and hopefully there won’t be a $35 corkage fee. For it.

What a gem! This place is an amazing experience - great food, excellent service and an enchanting atmosphere. It’s much larger than it appears from the outside too. It’s fun and vibrant, in a very authentic way. I loved the food too. Had a wonderful caprese salad to start, and then the chicken Parmesan. The warm fresh bread was also excellent. Can’t wait to go back!

The owner personally made sure I had a great birthday and sent us limoncello shots and Italian ice. It's in my top 5 places to eat in Atlanta now. I will be back! Thank you Il Localino!

Took entire family for my wife and daughters birthday and it was awesome! Best food, drinks and atmosphere in all of Atlanta. Owner is so attentive and service is impeccable. Also, the ONLY sit-down dining restaurant I have ever been to where they will bring you more of your meal if the portion wasn’t enough food for you...Mmmmmm! Owner gave our kids a tour of the kitchen too. Great place!

If you only dine out once this year, this must be the place! Professor Jiovanni is making every meal special, there is absolutely nothing routine about even most known dishes. The ambience resembles his home town of Venezia in Italy - permanent carnavale and joy. The service is friendly, joyful and very efficient. The food defies any comparison. Do yourself a favor and come here - you will be coming over an over again

Absolutely tremendous experience here. Food was spectacular. I’d probably order something different next time, considering I ordered filet medallions at an Italian restaurant; however, all other items were stupendous.

Atmosphere is incredible—great music selection that allows easy conversation. One of the best restaurant quaint atmospheres in the city. Definitely recommend.

Restaurant is much larger than it first appears. The food was very good but I felt the appetizers, sides, desserts, and wines were somewhat overpriced. Service was good and "the hat parade" made things interesting. Would be excellent if they reduced prices on "extras" just a little
