Yes, I have in the past and will continue to do so. The food is excellent, service is great and the music is perfect. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and really, the food couldn't be better. We had a wonderful time and, respectfully, a low-keyed 75th birthday which we requested. We couldn't have asked for more!!
Thank You IL Localino!

Giavonni and Gail were wonderful hosts! Our waiter, Barry was GREAT! The food and serve were unbelievable. Quite possibly the best dining experience we have ever had, and we have travel through Europe several times! The recommended wine..WOW!! We dined with our adult children, and a good time was had by all!

Thank you for an amazing evening! We will be back soon!

If I could give 10 stars I would!!!! My wife and I LOVE this place. We come here to celebrate all of our special occasions. If you're looking for a true Italian dining experience IL Localino is the place. No need to travel to NY when you have this gem in Atlanta. The owners will make you feel like part of the family. We are looking forward to our next visit!

I live in Virginia but travel quite a bit to Atlanta for work. Every time I am in town I will make sure to come here. Warm and welcoming people and the food is delicious. I have not had anything that is not fabulous yet. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We went for our wedding anniversary. Florist's flower delivery was handled perfectly. All staff welcomed us with happy anniversary and throughout dinner. Food was incredible (don't miss the osso bucco), delivery was timed perfectly. Wait staff and management made sure everything was going well throughout. Great value, and not cheap at $100 per person. Additional details: champagne for our anniversary free. Wonderfully decorated dessert platter with a free dessert. Cannot wait to go back.

We love the food and the service overall (even though it's usually quite slow/a long visit). BUT, the policy of not separating checks out for larger parties is just a bad one – especially at the restaurant's price level. It's a common practice in Europe and much quicker than a bunch of guests having to figure out who has to pay how much (even if you don't assign seat numbers, etc.). Just a bad end to a wonderful night. I would highly suggest you change that practice!!! Note: Wait to start vacuuming until the last guest have left! :)

This is our favorite Italian restaurant to go to in Atlanta. Giovanni and Gale have been serving customers for many years and know how to do it. While Giovanni is making his rounds to greet each and every person there, he makes you feel like family. Make sure you go there hungry and ready for a wonderful experience.

Red paper lanterns like an inexpensive Chinese restaurant lined the ceiling with string lights around mirrors and pictures
Bookshelf speakers which began blairing Whitney Houston and the like at 9:00 straight up
Seated us 30 minutes late for our reservation
Owner took our order but did not write it down and our order never came until I inquired if there was a problem with it at which time the waiter checked and said it would be out in a minute and it came out 15 minutes later.
Lobster bisque and grilled hearts of artichoke for appetizers
Eggplant Parmesan and steak medallions entrées
Two desserts and coffee no alcohol
Did you hear me no alcohol
Two bottles of Panna
$140.00 before tip
