Description: Featured on Guy Fieri's Diner's, Drive In's and Dive's. Owned and operated by the DiGiorgio family, DiGiorgio"s Cafe Largo is authentic. When you think pasta, local seafood, veal, tira misu and others, DiGiorgio's Cafe Largo is the first to come to mind in Key Largo. The DiGiorgio family emigrated from the cities of San Marino in north Italy and Cassino, outside of Rome. Being in business in South Florida since 1968 we have developed a great following and reputation. In 1990, the DiGiorgio family moved to Key Largo and saw the possibilities of mixing all the varieties of local seafood available with pasta and other dishes. When in Key Largo, we welcome you with open arms. Become a fan of our Facebook page and keep with our specials, events, reveiws and anything we might come up with spur of the moment. Just search "Cafe Largo" on Facebook.

“big space, too many TVs, OK food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2011

Our dinner was spoiled by all the TV sets around th e walls. i believe we counted 5, some of them big size. I asked to owner why so many TVs and his answer was that he wanted to create some excitement in the restaurant. Good restaurants do not need TVs, the food should be enough. What we ordered was OK. The Caesar salad was ok but the yellow tail with stuffed crab meat was insipid.

“Service was great, food was not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2011

Our server was great, and super helpful. We ordered the gnocchi and chicken piccata. The gnocchi tasted like canned ravioli. The piccata sauce was good but the chicken was very tough. Try another location

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2011

Good food and service at DiGiorgio's Cafe Largo. The bread was fresh and the garlic oil to dip bread in looked to be made with fresh garlic. The tour of Italy was very good as was the garlic shrimp pasta and fetticine alfredo. Dinners came with either soup or salad. Portions were generous and we never felt rushed through our meal. Will definately be back.

“HORRIBLE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2011

Worst excuse for Italian food ever. Waitress and other staff nice and helpful; however salad a non-event and gnocchi essentially inedible goo in Ragu sauce. We travel to Key Largo frequently and that was my first and my last meal there. Save your money and go elsewhere.

rgiorgio, Owner at DiGiorgio's Cafe Largo, responded to this review, September 1, 2011
I dont know what to say but that we are stunned at this review. Coming from an italian family and these being recipes that i have grown up, we recieve nothing but rave reviews on our homemade gnocchi made form scratch with real potatoes and the bolognese sauce made from scratch with italian tomatoes and "Certifed Angus Beef". We have been serving the same gnocchi at this location for the past 20 years with very positive results. We value any review we receive. What our customers think of us is very important. We are sorry for your experience and will research this thoroughly.
