We have eaten here for many years when visiting Key West. It's become our 'ol standard when we come to town--consistently good food and service. After being ripped off by the countless "tourist trap" restaurants with bad food and service, we have always had good meals and an attentive wait staff at their location on Duval Street. Thanks!!

I have eaten there before years ago and tried it again. Nothing special at these prices. I am Italian and very picky but this place isn't worth the prices they charge.

We visited Key West on a double birthday weekend and had The Misfortune of visiting La Trattoria. Firstly, our reception was cool -- to say the least -- while we noticed other patrons seemed to have gotten smiles and genuinely courteous service.

Chris was our waiter. We requested vegetarian dishes and we're told that there was no broccoli. After having to change around our selection, We noticed that a plate with broccoli, was being given to the table right next to us. We asked the hostess, why we were told there was no broccoli. She stated, that the broccoli is only for certain dishes and that there's a shortage on a Saturday night.Nice.

She obviously shared the fact that we had asked her also about the broccoli with our server. Chris came over with a slight attitude chastising us by saying that "he knows what he's doing And it's not that he doesn't want to give us the broccoli it's that it's for designated dishes". I then responded by saying "Yes. However, you said that there was no broccoli as opposed to broccoli can only be had with particular dishes -- we may have opted to order any one of those particular dishes Because are priority was actually brocolli." There was a back and forth (always a good sign of great service)... And our service was then carried out through the rest of the evening with passive aggression.

If you are a vegetarian or even looking for vegetarian dishes, there are limited options! They also don't serve calamari -- and your ridiculed if you do ask for it. If you're used to good service, they are limited in their ability to deliver that too. If you're looking for good bread you can stop there shortly -- but don't stay too long because the service may run out. We won't be back Chris -- so you can keep the broccoli!

The fresh bread was divine & served with a dipping sauce that was out of this world, with balsamic vinegar.
I had the snapper filet & my friend had chicken. Both were prepared to perfection.
Wait staff were exceptional- don't think I've ever experienced better service anywhere. Will definitely tell all my friends to visit this restaurant on Duvall street in key west.
