Booked a reservation for 530 on a Sunday, and I’m glad we did! By 6pm the place had filled up well. Service was wonderful and food even better.

A wonderful neighborhood restaurant that is worth a trip from your neighborhood. Great pasta. wonderful fish, large and delicious salads, deserts were all worth the calories and a really good wine list. The house red is better than most reds out there.

We love locanda! The food is delicious - a couple of our favorites are the wild boar ragu and the tripe! Their salads are delicious, their wine list is extensive and their cocktails are creative. It’s has a fabulous ambiance and wonderful decor.

We had a delicious meal starting with the antipasto tray. A treat not to be missed. Entrees were pasta with wild boar. Delicious. Duck breast with garbanzos done perfectly. Waiters were charming and personable and so very helpful. Best meal we have had in ages.

Locanda ALWAYS knocks it out of the park. Thank you for a truly spectacular dinner from the first apertivi to the house made Amari (and alchemers experiment). Our group also thoroughly enjoyed the history, cooking, culture, and wine lessons that accompanied each course. We will keep coming back for another ten years and then some more!

I took my wife, a certified pasta enthusiast, here for her birthday. Staff was welcoming, accommodating, and helpful. The atmosphere is cozy and charming, but the food for sure is the highlight. The entire food procession is start-to-finish good, but the pasta is to die for. We want to go back simply to try the other pastas we didn't order.

The first time we came we had a lovely experience at the bar. It was a cold night and we were craving a cozy spot with delicious Italian food and this place really hits the spot. Be sure to order a few plates to pass around the table and a bottle of wine too. Locanda is perfect for an intimate date or a special occasion with friends and family.
