Atlanta >Il Localino
“Great ambience, excellent service, phenomonal food.”
“have been to some pretty bad restaurants in Atlanta but this one takes the cake!”
“When I ordered the wine, the waitress told me, "Honey, eveyone is required to order an entree.”
“On top of that, my pasta was cold, I mean cold like it had been sitting out for hours.”
“The food is spectacular, and the wine list is an extensive collection of little-known but wonderful choices, mostly from Italy and California.”
“Don't get me wrong, its a very nice place with Amazing service and even better food.”
“The food was amazing and the service was so attentive, they made our anniversary one to remember, and we will definitely be back soon!”
“have never experienced such horrible customer service in my life.”
“After being ripped off $300 for a party of four for horrible food and even worse service, I chalk it up to an expensive learning experience.”
“People that know good food, know it can't be made in 5 minutes.”
Nasty Food, Nasty Service. Soggy Pasta. Sauce that tastes like it came out of a CAN. My eggplant was undercooked, and the veal was tough. There was not one thing we ordered that was decent, and it was all overpriced. The service was condescending and just downright rude. How anyone could give this place a positive review is beyond comprehension.
HORRIBLE!. This place is totally a "rip off"! Don't let their "charm" fool you. The only thing the owners care about is $$$$$ and will do anything to inflate your bill. Every dish in the place tastes exactly the same.....most are all "floating" in sauces that disquises what you are eating. Somtimes they tell you you are eating VEAL and you actually are served PORK because it is cheaper for them to buy. It is difficult to tell the difference because of the sauces. We felt so bad for the staff for the owners were constantly screaming at them, in front of all the customers. Then there was the fighting between the husband and wife owners. Instead of it being an enjoyable evening, we were all stressed out and financially abused by the time we left. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER again!!!
Anyone unable to have an enjoyable experience here should have their pulse checked!
It's not a quiet little bistro. It's not the place to show off your new Rolex or discuss market trends and their effect on 401Ks...... that is, unless that's what you want to do. This is a place for ALL. It is what YOU choose to make it.
Here, you can have FUN. FUN... come on people... you do remember fun, don't you?
Leave your cotton bloomers and starched shirts at home, let your hair down, and simply enjoy a truly wonderful dining experience.
Great food, good people, affordable prices.
What more do you need?
Fantastc Experience. Great food and service by nice people. And what fun! When the music and disco ball got going people got up and danced everywhere. Conga lines formed and the place rocked. The food is the best in Atlanta. Everything was fresh. Steak melts in your mouth and the seafood will make your mouth water. We loved it and will bring back friends. This place can't be beat! Even the valet guys go out of their way to please you.
Very Romantic.... On a recent date to this fantastic location, my boyfriend and I bypassed the crowded, loud, but what-looked-like-lots-of-fun front area for a quieter corner in the back of the restaurant. There, we found the ambiance, service, and food to be perfect for our romantic date. Also seated in this area was a couple celebrating their 40th anniversary and the first couple who got engaged at the restaurant. The warm and social owner brought out a bottle of champagne for all of us to share in their celebrations, turning the back of the restaurant into a mini dinner party. We all discussed the delectable desserts, finally settling on the melt-in-your-mouth tiramasu ! I would definitely recommend this place to a couple on a romantic date or a group of friends looking for a fun and unique atmosphere.
So much fun!. I went to this restaurant on a recent business trip, and can't wait to go back! It was quiet when we went in, and we were skeptical. But then the cheese, olives, and bread arrived, and swarming service. People started coming in - it was chaotic beauty. The pasta fagioli is fantastic, as was the lasagna and the salmon that my coworker ordered. It's not for everybody, but if you like an eclectic mix of great food, quirky atmosphere, and charismatic waitstaff, then this is the place for you. If you're a stuffed shirt, just stay home, for God's sake. This place is only for people that know how to have a good time!
NIGHTMARE. BEWARE! This was BY FAR the worst restaraunt that I have ever eaten at. I have never experienced such horrible customer service in my life. We were not informed our their dinner "policies" until after we sat down. We were told that we HAD to order an entree and could not order salads/appetizers (even though we spent over 150 dollars on wine). We tried to leave after the owner SCREAMED and caused a scene. But if we would have left the table, they would have charged our credit card 20 dollars a person plus the cost of wine (they take your credit card when you make a reservation) The worst part is that the food tasted like Chef Boyardee.
Indeed a Rip-off!. I have to agree with the last poster; Il Localino is a rip-off. Fortunately, I made the mistake only once. Paying such inflated prices for medicocre food and surly service borders on insanity. It's amazing that this place is still in business, I cannot inagine anyone returning to be ripped off over and over. I guess there are a steady stream of business travelers and tourists tto keep this place afloat.
So many suckers, so little time..... I have eaten here twice, and both times were VERY expensive for sub-par, bland food. My wife cooks beautiful Italian, so maybe I am spoiled. NO, I am not spoiled, the food at this restaurant is! I felt so abused after my last $300 visit that I vowed "Never Again!" I can only suppose that the positive reviewers on this site either did not have to pay the bill or are very easily swayed by noise and bright lights. The place is fine for mediocre food-- but not at $75+ per person! Stay away unless you want to prove P.T. Barnum right-- there is a sucker born every minute, and Il Localino is feeding on them every night.
Brilliant! Bravo! Wonderful Experience!. By chance we decided to try out this local Italian restaurant because our first choice was closed on Sunday. What an absolutely fabulous experience! Great ambience, excellent service, phenomonal food. Even though almost every table was full, every person working there was at your service. We are very happy to add this to our list of favorites. It is a true neighborhood jewel for Inman Park.
