I suspect this restaurant is typically pretty noisy; however, we ended up in a small room in the very back of the restaurant, which I LOVED because we could hear each perfectly and conversation was easy. The food was delicious, the staff took excellent care of us, and I will definitely go back.

We dined at Il Localino on a week night so the restaurant was quiet. It was our first time at the restaurant so we were pleasantly surprised at the decor. The ceiling draws one's eyes up to look at an eclectic array of paper lanterns, pans, chairs with lights twinkling and then the walls have all sizes of framed portraits of family, art, nature, etc. It was a lot of fun yet romantic place to dine. The service was friendly yet professional. The food was outstanding. The portion size was large. For those with small appetites, it would be nice if they added half portions. We had a book signing and lecture to attend at the Carter Presidential Library so it was a perfect location for us.

Fun atmosphere and great food. Beware of where you are seated. If you’re seated in the front on the right side you will be screaming all night.

The restaurant only has one speaker and they blast music all night. The music is great and theoretically fun but if you’re in direct line of the speaker you can’t hear yourself think let alone talk.

We asked to turn the music down several times but each time the song changed the volume went right back up.

Next time I’ll make sure to ask to request a seat location.

Il Localino is a unique gem. The neighborhood is charming and interesting, the decor is wild and fun, the atmosphere is lively and the food is good, old-school Italian done in the best way. The servers are knowledgable, professional and friendly, the salads are fresh and delicious and it's easy to see why this restaurant has many neighborhood regulars as well as is a knowledgable concierge's top recommendation for out-of-towners.

Dining room is charming! Unfortunately that’s were it ends. Food,service, table size (too small for 4 people,) all not good. They turned the music up so loud at 7:00 it was ridiculous! Dinner meat was tough! (Osso buco should fall off the bone) whole fish fried small amount of meat. Service was surly. Sadly we will not return.

Great Atlanta restaurant, their food is comparable to any restaurant I have been to in Boston's North End. Excellent Italian food, service was great, nice ambiance. We went there for their Easter Lunch from the appetizer to the dessert everything was delicious. The shrimp fra diavolo was outstanding. Will definitely return to try more menu items.
