I can't say too many great things about Virgilio's. The food was so great, authentic Italian, but with an Island flare. Great seafood dishes, wonderful wine list, friendly staff. We'd love to go back!

We ate at Virgilio's on our last visit to Key West 2 years ago. We returned again this time because the food is excellent and we like the martini selection. If you like chocolate, try the Milky Way martini. Also, you can eat in the little bar area out front and enjoy the people watching on Duval Street. It can... More

Carrie was so refreshing it seems like anymore when you go out to eat the service isn't friendly or you are made to feel like you inconvenience them by asking a ??. We were so lucky to have been blessed with someone who smiled and enjoyed her job the owners are lucky to have her.

Flatbread Pizza was killer alongside an order of Tortellini. The sausage served with it was wonderful.

Lots and lots of amazing martinis, served in generous portions. The evening entertainment is also worth a stop. The top is mostly open to the outside elements, so fun on a nice night.

The trattoria was around the corner from our B&B. The table next to us had four Italian men. I need say no more.

The live band the night we went was excellent, although dance floor small, it was enjoyable! $5 martinis were great and good selection. Good vibe in the place, my favourite out of our bar hop.

It is definitely a bar that the locals frequent but we found the bar on an internet search and went in for martini's. They were excellent. We went back the following 2 nights because the bartender was the best - mixes a great drink, is friendly and remembers everyone. We had dinner at the bar one night and the snapper... More
