The Front Desk at our hotel recommended this restaurant to us, so we were looking forward to our dinner there. We were greeted at their front door and promptly seated at a window table that overlooked Duval Street. Nice touch! The wines we ordered were fairly-priced, we thought, and there was a good variety of wines available by the glass.... More

Thank you for your honest and fair review. In our 37 years here in key west, we strive each day to be better in all aspects of the dinning experience. Apparently we fell a bit short on this night, and for that I apologize. We hope to see you again but understand and respect your opinion. I have addressed the... More

My wife and I went to La Trattoria for our 10 year anniversary weekend dinner and loved it. We shared a Bruscheta ($10.50) to start and she had the Gnocchi ($17.50) and I had the seafood Ravioli ($25.50) - and we were both very pleased! Great wine list too! $89 for a bottle of Jordan. Ameth was terrific server! Highly... More

We made reservations well in advance for dinner at La Trattoria for our Key West visit with friends. Using TripAdvisor as the primary source of recommendations, we were very pleased with our choice. The venue meets your "mind's eye" when thinking of an intimate Italian restaurant. The menu is well more than adequate; we all had difficulty making our final... More

We have dined here many times. We requested the high top table in the bar so we could watch the Duval Street crowd. Our table was ready on arrival. Great service. We love the lamb chops!! And this time we had a special parmesan garlic soup. Yummmm We will look forward to going back on our next trip.

Excellent food and service at a reasonable price. Everything my party of three ordered was delicious including the appetizers. I will go back whenever I go to Key West.

The building makes you feel like you are not in Key West, but in some lovely little Italian town, far, far way. Our headwaiter Chris, was top notch which made the experience extra special. They send a gentleman around the room with fresh bread in a wooden box to your table to start with an olive oil dip - divine!... More

My wife and I were in Key West for the day and booked La Trattoria. We had been here in a previous trip a couple of years ago. It remains great and reservations are recommended after 7 PM. We split a mixed green salad, which was plenty. It was delicious and the accompanying home-baked bread was, as well. She ordered... More

My wife and I visited on our very first night in Key West and tried La Trattoria on the recommendation of the hotel concierge. We sat at the bar. A fine selection of Italian dishes. Something for all tastes. Our meals (mine, the tortellini with sausage) were well prepared and delicious. No risks here.

Nice evening out. Our waiter Johnny was professional and attentive. I had veal piccata and it was very good. Nice wine selection. Key lime pie was among the best I had on the island.
