Small group of six to celebrate birthday. Owners and staff treated us like royalty and I suspect they do the same for everyone. Meal and wine were superb and ambiance was exactly what I’ve been seeking since my former fave small Italian restaurant closed years ago. This is my new fave and I will gladly drive 50 miles to enjoy it again...and again!

The New Years Eve atmosphere was out of this world! Balloons, lanterns, flowers everywhere. And the amazing service crew was ready for the full house crowd without seeming rushed. The menu selections were perfect for our group of picky vegetarians AND Italian style meat and pasta lovers. Love Potion cocktails were a special hit, along with the tiramasu. One part of our group came all the way from Chicago for the eggplant parmesan.

The moment i asked the waiter the price of a bubbly, he took serious disgruntled attitude. In fact, he decided he didnt want to wait on us. The owner came over to announce specials, and then she became disgruntled because I said I might just want a caesar salad. I was still full from holidays, and decided the pasta dishes, which aren't so great, weren't worth $25, especially when served by waiters acting like we are a 'bother.' We were hoping for authentic caesars, and they simply WERE NOT. More attitude was delivered to us. We both recently moved here from Hollywood/in the entertainment biz, and would never rec this place to anyone. Everyone was rude except for blonde gal. Next night went to SOTO SOTO, got real Italian food, greeted by a lovely staff.

Localino reminds me of an intimate Italian restaurant you would find in New York city. Frank Sinatra tunes in the background, amazing food and service. It also has a festive feeling with the owner making small talk with the customers and disco balls that turn on at some point in the evening. Often feels like you are dining with your new found friends in the rest of the dining room.

The dining rooms are small, cozy and invite interaction with staff and fellow diners.

Truly a dining experience, not just a meal.
