Absolutely love this place - food, service are excellent. Delicious Italian food served in large portions at reasonable prices. Always have a tempting list of daily specials and a good wine list featuring Italian favorites.

We have driven by this place so many times and finally decided to stop after a movie and have dinner. We didn't have reservations but were there a little bit ahead of the crowd so we were able to get a table. It looked as though this place is usually busy with a fairly regular clientele. The service was excellent.... More

My husband and I have been to La Locanda on many occasions by ourselves, with friends and as an event. Each time the food and the staff have been nothing less than wonderful and gracious. The menu never disappoints!

Convenient corner location w ample parking. Separate bar/dining area w TVs. Friendly staff with what appears to be many repeat local family diners. Typical Italian food choices. Appetizers - grilled pear and a second fig dish. Eggplant parmigiana and pumpkin ravioli were acceptable. Appetizers, pasta and sparkling waters $90.

My husband and I wanted to go to a special place to celebrate our anniversary, and this was definitely the right choice! From the moment we walked in until our exit, we were treated so well, and everthing was delicious. We had a very special table in "the wine room" which was more private. Soon after we were seated, we... More

Basically what the title says. The food is consistently good as is the service. I've had everything from fish to pasta. Have they had a few not to my taste dishes? Yes. One was a pasta special with oxtail ( here in the US it is cow's tail) that wasn't sauced enough. However that being said this is still our... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. My husband and I often go there and eat in the bar area and just make a meal off appetizers. The scrapelle soup is delicious although I can no longer eat it because I have to eat gluten free. I recently enjoyed a wonderful eggplant appetizer that was just amazing. Better than I... More

We enjoy the food at this restaurant, but it is very loud and often hard to hear one another. We were with another couple and had a hard time conversing... we haven't been back.
