“Good sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

While waiting for our shuttle back to our hotel, we saw Duetto's and decided to get sandwiches to take back to the hotel. The owners were very friendly and the sandwiches were very good. It did seem to take quite a long time to make them but that may be because we were limited for time, not wanting to miss the shuttle.
They were worth the wait and we wish we had had time to try other offerings.

Yes, you are right, it takes a bit more because we make it at the moment and we do not use microwave to warm it.. We fill the sandwich with a variety of ingredients and we grill it to have the perfect panino!
Glad to hear that t you were satisfied!
We really thank you and we wish you a wonderful new year.

“Real Pizza in Key West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Attempting to find my son a slice of pizza, I was pleasantly surprised to come across Duetto.
Newly opened by transplanted Italians (Turin), It was one of the better slices of pizza and gelato (freshly made in-house) I've had outside of NYC metro area.
As he ate his pizza and I sat back enjoying a well-made macchiato, I realized I could easily spend some leisure time here while family toured the city.

“Real Northern Itailan pizza and best gelato by true Italians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We fell upon this pearl while searching for another coveted food source (Garbo's grill, across the street a bit further down) and were immediately taken by the mango sorbet sample and the smell of their pizzas.
I cannot think of a better gelato (try the coconut sorbet, any gelato) in the USA, maybe a few equals in Northern Italy (turns out they get some of the essentials from Milan) and the pizza, oh the pizzas... how will I ever go back to the canned tomato sauce taste by those self-proclaimed "best in the city" places?!
This is the real thing, aromatic, fresh, perfect dough, excellent toppings (don't miss the "ham and cheese"!) brought me back to one of my all-time favorites just outside Venice.
The service, with the real Italian accent (not Brooklyn...) was excellent and the prices made into a great meal for 2 adults and a 4yr old.

Highly recommended (wish it wasn't so close to the freaking southern tip of this country...)

“Great casual restaurant! DELICIOUS Italian food, very reasonably priced.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We got brunch from them twice. Once we got the Panini Parma with prosciutto, mozzarella and Italian basil with olive oil. SOOO delicious! We also ordered pizza and we all enjoyed it. They are very reasonably priced for the area AND they have great tasting coffee! A must stop when you're in Downtown Key West. They have a very clean restroom. Staff were ALL very friendly. The atmosphere is casual and there is outdoor seating. This is a good place to rest and grab a quick bite in between visiting museums, attractions or while shopping. It is also across from the trolley stops so it's very convenient.

“A true gem of a restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Found this place by sheer luck when we were trying to grab something to eat before heading to our snorkeling trip. What a pleasant surprise!. This is a small place run by a very friendly Italian family. We ordered the chicken panini sandwich, they took nearly 15 mins to make it. Only after taking the first bite on the boat we realized why they took 15 mins. They actually "made" the sandwich by cooking the chicken, not by tossing some frozen crap into the microwave. fresh chicken basil cheese, it tasted like heaven and they charged only 6.5 bucks for that!. It was soooo good that we grabbed 2 more sandwiches on our way back. Not to mention, the gelato was the best I have ever tasted!. Its very hard to find a place like this these days that really cared about the food they make and not just the profits. Will be visiting your store for sure the next time we visit the keys.
