I loved my first experience here but my second experience not as much. Our waiter was very inattentive and we were seated at a tiny booth in spite of the fact that we had two big (6'2" and 6'4") men with us. While the food was very good, I'm not sure I'll be going back again soon. Which is sad because we LOVED our first time there.

This was our first trip to IL Localino and it surely will not be our last. The food was exceptional. The mood was perfect. And our service was impeccable. Thank you for making our Valentines Day extremely special.

Quaint yet decorative little Italian restaurant with excellently prepared food. Late in the evening, our room turned into a fun, festive place with 70’s disco music and goofy hats for all. Delicious and entertaining.

Food was good but overall service was very poor. After quickly taking drink and food orders we were served fairly quickly but then no one ever came back to the table. No one asked how food was. Couldn’t even get someone’s attention to get some fresh pepper or cheese. We sat with our meals finished over 40 minutes trying to get someone’s attention so we could leave. No one ever came over to see if we wanted more drinks or dessert either. Lost money for them since we would have drank more and ordered a dessert had we even been able to. We have never tried so hard to leave a restaurant! We just moved to around the corner from here and restaurant had such great reviews we were excited to try it but were seriously disappointed in the experience.

Simply Wonderful! As soon as you walk in you are transported back to 1970s New York.
Food was incredible and there is enough decorations to make you fascinated while you wait for your food. Service was quick and they immediately give you delicious bread with house made butter sauce.
The Ribeye was fantastic and generously sized.

Highly recommend, this is a really fun place, but still upscale so you get a wonderful evening out with just enough fancy but plenty of fun.

I've dined here a handful of times and always had a good experience. The food is great and the atmosphere is what really makes this restaurant stand out. However, this last time it took just under 2 hours to get our food. Once we finally received our plates, half of the orders were wrong and were sent back to the kitchen. I will say, they did provide free meatballs and a free pasta (one the wrong orders), but still a disappointing experience nonetheless.

Fantastic evening in Atlanta.
Recommended by Syracuse University men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim -- and for very good reasons.
Food was spectacular: we had the evening's specials: whole sea bass and the short rib agnolotti pasta.
We enjoyed a terrific bottle of Napa cabernet sauvignon with the meal.
Starter salad was fresh with a wonderful vinaigrette.
Lemon dessert cake was moist and flavorful.
Atmosphere was eclectic with an energetic staff who were all very personable.
Can't wait for our next visit to downtown Atlanta.

This was a nice little restuarant, good for a birthday dinner. Upon entering, you learn quickly how small the place is, there is no hostess stand and only an aisle big enough for one. Once seated, we had the salad cart right beside us, limiting our elbow room. The food was very good though. They even treated us to a meatball sample. We had two salads, vegetables, and desserts, that we shared and then we each had our own entrees. Some the plates were more filling than others, but the taste was right on point.

We were a party of 12 and had a terrific time. The meals were excellent but for those who ordered the Red Snapper (over-cooked and dry). I thought the balls hanging from the ceiling created a festive touch but also added to the cramped feel. Otherwise, a charming establishment with a GREAT staff and terrific menu. Vodka and sorbet. Who knew?!
