Thrilled to find great Italian in Key West!

This quaint restaurant was like a hidden gem in this touristy town. We enjoyed an excellent dinner for 6 with delicious apps, fresh salads and authentic Italian pasta dishes. A MUST VISIT on your next trip, we cannot wait to go back!

A fantastic restaurant. Was seated a a table by the window looking out at Duval. Our waiter was excellent. Sorry I don't remember his name, but he made our dinner a fantastic experience. We started with antipasta then moved on to the veal shank which was melt in your excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back.... More

"La Trattoria" will immediatley catch your attention while strolling along cosmopolitan Duval Street! It is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Key West! Italian traditional cuisine, good wine list and correct prices. Choose a table by the windows and let "La Trattoria" spoil you! And one last remark: don't you dare to miss the delicious freshly basked bread, served... More

I really enjoyed this spot on Duval Street. Got a table by the window so I was totally entertained while savoring some really good Italian fare. After a couple days in Key West I just craved something other than seafood. Right away... the carpaccio starter turned out to be a great sign that the food to come would be a... More

My husband and I ate here after getting married in Key West last year. We came back this year for our first anniversary. We had hoped to have dinner here again to celebrate our anniversary but our kayak tour went later than we thought it would and we didn't arrive to the restaurant until 30 minutes before they closed. That... More

Quaint little place on Duval Street with beautiful Italian music. Yummy fresh baked bread to start with trio of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and cheese for dipping:) The lasagna was delicious, but the Lobster & Crab Ravioli was out of this planet!!!

Dined with a party of 30 people. Service was great and the food was wonderful. I chose the Hogfish served over mashed potatoes and green beans which was the special of the day. I don't believe this item to be on the regular menu but only a special when available. I had never tried Hogfish and was very surprised with... More

We have been to La Trattoria several times and keep coming back. While no longer on the menu (ask your waiter) the Chef's preparation of Pasta Puttanesca is just wonderful. Given that Trattoria is on Duval Street in Key West, the dining experience here is a great value. Service as well is top notch. We'll go back the next winter... More

The linguini with clams is spot on. Every time I eat here I'm reminded of great Italian food is supposed to taste like. You won't be disappointed.
