Our absolute favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta!!!

Do not hesitate.
Make a reservation today!!!
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.
Excellent food and a fun time!
Always such a pleasure to go here. It’s like showing up to your favorite relatives house and they happen to be an amazing cook. Can’t wait to come back!
Always great food and service.
They had a fabulous set menu for Mother’s Day!! The lobster bisque was to die for! We’ve been here many times before and will continue to return for date night and special occasions, like a Tuesday!
As hectic as Mother’s Day is, the staff at Il Localino made everything run smoothly. As it was our first time dining there, they made us feel like family. We will definitely be back!!!
Loved the food, the atmosphere and the vibe. Professor Giovanni, the owner, was a delightful host. The sole piccata and accompanying pasta were exquisite. We will be back!
My favorite Italian restaurant Food excellent and service, one of a kind. You are treated like family. The best!!
Great restaurant with excellent food, service and staff!!! Made my birthday celebration special and memorable!!
Yum. The veal was great and the ravioli special disappeared quickly
Every visit to Il Localino is a special occasion! Thanks to Gale and the staff for the warm welcome and the wonderful dining experience.
When in Atlanta, we ALWAYS DINE here. Everything here is FIRST CLASS. EVERYTHING!! Can't wait to get back, again, soon. Food, service, wines,
It was a fun atmosphere with amazing food. Mama Gail took care of us all night and was amazing. Must go back.
If you have not dined at IL Localino, do yourself a favor, and give it a try. The owners and staff will make you feel like family. Authentic Italian food and ambiance makes this my favorite Italian Restaurant in Atlanta.
Excellent Italian. Pricey. Tight inside. But worth it for the food.
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.
Great ambiance. My fiancé and I went with another couple. The service is impeccable and the food was really good! I like that there's complimentary valet parking and all you need to do is leave a tip!
Giovanni and Gale have been wonderful hosts to many wonderful evenings for us for years. The food is incredible, the atmosphere is unique and fun, the service is on a level with the finest dining establishments in Atlanta. You will be made to feel like you are on someone's A-List and a friend of the family.
Awesome place! Food was delicious and we had a blast.
lots of fun to be had there. Also, once in a lifetime opportunity on top shelf single bottles of wine!
We love this place!
Fun atmosphere with good food. Love the hats when the music kicks in!
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.
The food was excellent as was the service. This is a top notch establishment!
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.
AMAZING establishment. We make it a mission to visit this restaurant everytime we are in town. I have been to hundreds of Italian restaurants across the country and Il Localino is in my top three favorites!!! That's saying a lot considering I live in Boston!!! Try it - you will NOT be disappointed!!!
This place was amazing! It is a hidden gem in the neighborhood. It has been around for a very long time and is truly one of the most fun dining experiences that I have had. Everyone was super friendly and the food was great!
Average,so so food.VERY expensive for a plate of pasta.Really neat interior,waiters are fantastic.Reminds you of the restaurant where Michael Corleone took out the 2 bad guys.
Food and service was excellent. Friendly staff and owners. Been there a number of times and have never been disappointed.
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.
It’s really the best. Great homemade food. Fun music and hats.
Absolutely love this place. The food is always very good and the service is great. The atmosphere is like nothing in Atlanta. Can’t wait to go back.
Loved everything about it!
Greatest restaurant around
Amazing! Best Italian food around!
