Excellent and Authentic

What a lovely place - you need to walk a bit from the nearest tram or bus but it is worth it. The owner and his nephew welcomed us into his restaurant. Sure you pay but it is worth the quality. The prawns on rocket for starter are excellent as is the mixed bruschetta. Try the black truffle... read more

I ate in many many Italian places for 5-times less, and much better quality. They are all Italian, but sometimes this is not enough to ensure real Italian food. Pasta in tomato sauce far away from the real one, pizza margarita very average and the mozzarella was tasteless... Those are basics that all Italians need to have under control... A... More

Romeo and his nephew Alessandro make this restaurant really special. They love their job and the family feeling of this place clearly comes from there. Italian red from the southern part of the country is at home here, the typical specialties of the cooking recipes of Calabria are on the list every day and the experience of tasting these, be...

Longtime user, first time contributor. I only write this review because after 10 years of living in Nurnberg I am leaving – I didn’t want YOU getting in the way of me and my favourite restaurant ;) I’ve eaten well around the world. I’ve been lucky enough to have eaten some michelin starred food and equally had epic street food... More

Great, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. Very authentic ambience with swaggering, almost threateningly attentive waiters and sensational food. The black truffles on pasta were sensational. I recommended it to friends who were similarly enraptured.

We had such a wonderful dinner at La Locanda! We do not speak German that well, we speak mostly English, but that is No problem. Everyone at La Locanda is so accommodating, patient, and friendly! They treat you like family! I always get the ravioli with truffles! It is so delicious!!! I highly recommend La Locanda!!

We had a mix of pasta starter and meat main course and I have to say it is some of the best food I've had lately, was surprised to find such good Italian food in Germany.

Great food! Everything is fresh and tasteful, simple and reasonably priced. Really feel like being in a small restaurant in Italy. Not a glamorous part of town and also not the most trendy decor. Go there for good Italian food and friendly service! Went their with colleagues and customer during a show at the Messe and everyone loved it.

Back for trade show in Nuremberg and La Locanda is a must for me and my Italian friends. Food is fantastic and Romeo always makes us feel like we are home. Try the N'duja if you fancy something hot! I had pasta cooked perfectly and my colleagues said the steaks were perfect.
