Standard Italian fare, perhaps a bit better than average. Preparation, presentation, and quantities were all good. Service was excellent. The downtown location is at the busy end of Duval, with all the advantages and disadvantages that entails. (The chocolate mousse was the highlight of the meal: 3 sizable globes of mousse, one white chocolate. This alone might justify a visit.)

Good recommendation by our concierge. Had a terrific waiter and the best table in the house (in the front window) for people-watching on Duval, so the stars aligned for us. Wine was really good, a baby super-Tuscan, which everyone enjoyed. Started with bruschetta (fabulous) and the eggplant rolatini for appetizers. The table had chicken Parma (good old stand-by), the hogfish... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this place and he was spot on with the recommendation. Nice selection and portions. Prices were a little more than ideal but for lighter appetites they offered 1/2 size portions which worked well and helped control costs. We were with a group of 9 and we all really enjoyed our food. Nice ambience. Service... More

We always find time for a dinner at La Trattoria when on vacation in Key West, and have never been disappointed. The service, food and ambiance are awesome.

Nice atmosphere and great service but the food was "generic" especially the sauce for my scallops and my wife's veal which seemed identical. Would probably stick to the pastas if we returned.

Went here our first night in Key West. Got a table right away, host was very kind. Waitress was aloof and not paying attention, needed to keep flagging her down for the basics; ie ordering food and drinks, which gave me a negative feeling before the meal even came. Food was ok; insalata Mista was just ok, hardly any dressing... More

Opens at 5:30, which is when we arrived. We ordered escargots for an appetizer. Excellent! My wife ordered the Tortellini Alla Romana, which is a cheese tortellini with smoked ham, peas, and tomatoes. Yum! I ordered the Linguine Fra Diavolo, which is linguine with shrimp, mussels, and calamari in a spicy seafood sauce. Soooo good. Portions are generous. And pricing... More
