Was taken to the Locanda by aged parents who have eaten here before so had reasonable expectations. I wasn't disappointed. We were well looked after and after being served drinks and our food order taken we waited maybe 20 - 30 minutes for our starters. This was fine as we had time to talk and the wait was worth it....

Ordered drinks, they served our drinks to another table, mix-up ensued; not much of an issue. They only served our drinks after the following happened: the waiter took the wrong glass of wine served to the other table, which was meant for me, went behind the counter and then magically "my" glass of wine appeared! Now, I cant claim 100%... More

5 of us visited on a Sat evening - rang to book and had to eat at 6pm as they were full later! Happy to eat early and certainly weren't disappointed. The food was top notch and plentiful, the (house) wine properly chilled and good quality, the staff professional, pleasant and friendly, the ambience all you could wish. What more... More

Visited this restaurant two year ago and enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. Visited again yesterday, and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have had for a long time, in the UK or abroad. The mussel starter was superb - big fat mussels, and the liver main excellent. My wife said her goats cheese starter... More

I recently stayed in Eastbourne for two nights. Based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and from my B&B hosts I decided to give this restaurant a try. I also would like to say that I am by no means an expert on restaurants and food. The first night I got there early (around 6 pm) but it was already relatively... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover, or a restaurant by its décor! Fantastic service with a smile & a fair few jokes to boot. Sizeable menu. We skipped starters, but nevertheless they all sounded good. Good GnT. My fish medley was superb & everyone else on the table really enjoyed their meals. I'll definitely be going the next time... More

I believe it shares a kitchen with the Restaurant next door Pomodoro e Mozzarella but is much quieter and therefore more appropriate for those seeking a more refined dining option. I say romantic for on one of our visits there was a marriage proposal, and acceptance, on the next table.

We have eaten at this restaurant on many occasions both for lunch and Dinner and the last time was sadly after my Mothers funeral. It was a bitter sweet occasion and the staff were tactful and considerate. We arrived extremely late owing to the dreadful weather conditions and without doubt they staff had to remain much later than normal.The food... More
