We raved at every course they served us! The service was amazing - i don't believe the Queen of England receives better service. Our waitress was Cat. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Wish we could remember the name of her assistant - he was shy but so very charming. My daughter and I could eat there everyday. Please, if you enjoy... More

I really debated on this one -- "very good" or "excellent". There were good arguments on both sides. Suffice it to say that you really can't go too wrong eating a meal at La Trattoria, and certainly not if you manage to get one of the two (maybe more, but I only saw two) semi-private window tables facing the street...

We just ate at La Trattoria down at Duval st. The place is just great. The food is amazing ( the soup of the day was outstanding and so the bruschetta!) The pasta portions are bigger than usual, so have that in mind. Our server (Chris) was AWESOME, really, if he is your server you'll have an even greater experience... More

I hate writing reviews. I've spent a decent amount of time as a server, so I know things happen. I've also lived in Key West for three years and have lowered my expectations of good service. Ate at La Trattoria last week for our anniversary though and was highly unimpressed. The good: we were a walk-in about 30 minutes before... More

Great Italian food with a Key West flair. Ate at the bar with a friend of mine and had an excellent time because of the great food and bartender's personality. Later we went into the back bar and had a couple of martinis during the Martini Monday Madness. Well worth just stopping in for the great drink special but make... More

This was the best meal of the trip. We had a few meals, and two in our party split a meal. The tortellini was outstanding, and inexpensive for the quality.

Nice Italian restaurant on street. Typical lively Italian atmosphere. I had the best escargot I have had. Made in a mushroom sauce. Was tender and very savory. I would go there just for that dish. My dinner was spicy seafood pasta. The problem is that they are considered fine dinning so it sets the bar pretty high. The pasta was... More

Walking along Duval street we found this place. Cozy ambience. Great service. Nice bread came along with a mix of olive oil, balsamic and parmesan, to dip in. Ordered a mahi mahi with polenta and spaghetti with clams in white wine and butter sauce. All very good. Washed down with a nice bottle of white wine. Why not 5 stars?... More

We ate here per suggestion of the young lady who works at the b and b where we were staying. We had reservations but got in earlier. It was a week day. It didn't get crowded until about 7:30. I had the scallops. The server suggested I get pasta instead of rice. Great idea. The sauce on the scallops went... More

So here is a 6 sided review. But I'm writing it so the star rating is based on my opinion. I would be out voted and the other 5 in my group would give it a 4 star rating at the very least. For me the food was ok. I ordered a bottle of wine, which they did not have,... More
