Top class fresh Italian food, beautifully cooked & presented. Owner very attentive. Lovely building full of character. Well worth driving a little further afield and already trying to fix a return visit. In a league of its own. Thank you for making our Saturday evening so special.

Given this is a small converted cottage on the high-street in Gisburn what they offer is simply outstanding! You could be forgiven for driving past and not giving it a second glance - but you really would be missing out! Ill start with the food which put simply is the best Italian cuisine we have ever eaten. We both had... More

We once again visited La Locanda whilst staying nearby in self catering lodges. A group of girls away for the weekend. This authentic Italian restaurant was busy, as is expected, especially since it was a Saturday evening, but the staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. I had the paper wrapped seafood pasta - again - after having... More

A lovely restaurant offering a complete dining experience. Front of house staff knowing the menu well enough to recommend side dishes is a rare thing these days. Excellent service and fantastic food and all at a reasonable price considering the quality. Possibly one of the best restaurants I've been to. Ever.

We visited this restaurant with my son and his wife to celebrate a birthday. It's not just that the food is superb, but the attention to detail by the staff and owners between courses make it a novel eating experience.

Our friends invited us to join them for a night at the Park House B and B with reservations to La Locanda thrown in. They had been before and enjoyed the authentic Italian cuisine there. So we eagerly anticipated our taste buds being excited. You do not get the full menu with the offer, which was a pity, you just... More

We enjoyed a delicious and very filling three course meal at La Locanda (as part of the great value deal with local B&B Park house) - we were welcomed into the bar area for an aperitif whilst we chose from the extensive menu - it was a difficult choice as all of the options sounded wonderful and very creative. We... More

We visited this lovely restaurant whilst staying at the nearby Ribblesdale Park, with recommendations from the park we picked here for a 50th Birthday meal. From first booking the table 2 months before to leaving after a fantastic night the owner and staff couldn't do enough for us. Lovely meal was had by all, the food was excellent and the... More
