The food was excellent . The atmosphere nice . The service was okay. We had to ask for bread and they acted like we were asking for an unexpected extra. The servers are a bit snobby but the food was excellent .

Awesome service! Fantastic food! These guys are great, even late, we dined at almost 10 o'clock after being at the bars and it was perfect. Eggplant rolltini , the antipasti was huge, and pasta and bread service was perfect! Big fan, can't wait to get back to an old school place in paradise!

We visit here about once a month. We typically sit at the bar but got a table last time. Nikki, our server was training a new server, Johnny. I have found when people are training someone the interaction becomes odd. This was NOT the case. Our dining experience was wonderful! And so was the food. They even split our dishes... More

Rule of thumb: the farther away from the nighttime bustle and booze at the lower end of Duval Street, the better the dining destinations in Key West. But La Trattoria is an exception; in fact, I considered it our best meal on this trip, and certainly a contender for the top pantheon of all the restaurants we have enjoyed in... More

This review is all about our waiter, I've been a waiter 30 yrs but let me tell you the guy there is as good as it gets. Think his name is Chris blond hair. His attention to detail was fantastic. This restaurant are very lucky to have him. Yes the food was great but he made it. I'm going back... More

Food was great and that's coming from New Yorkers who know their Italian food. Our server, Jenn, was very friendly. She gave us great suggestions for the rest of our trip. Would be a good spot for groups.

We had dinner at the Duval Street location. Much more upscale then most other places on Duval, and has a nice atmosphere. Good service, good food, and nice wine list. I had the special, which was freshly caught hogfish. My wife had a pasta and vegetables dish. Both were very tasty. We also had the bruschetta, which was good as... More

Well, I always thought that I'd say my mother in law made the best Italian food. La Trattoria was in fact "possibly" just as good. I experienced the best lasagna I've ever had here in Key West !! Unbelievable. The tortellini with sausage were also WAY ABOVE average. The ceasar salad was fantastic ! The service is also stellar. The... More
