Excellent food and excellent service

We had a meal here after searching round for a place to eat having just arrived in the town. They were able to fit us in despite being really busy, really looked after us well and we were so impressed that we booked to return the following night. Booking is highly recommended.

La Locanda is Eastbournes premier Italian restaurant (closely followed by her sister restaurant Il Pomodora et Mozarella) The food is excellent, the serving staff are welcoming, humorous and attentive. Luca and his staff provide value for money, a congenial dining environment and a memorable evening.

Very nice atmosphere, polite Staff and very good Food. Great value for money We had visited this Restaurant quite frequently when we lived in the area some years ago but having moved to Norfolk had not been in recent times. We were staying in Seaford mid April and were trying to think of somewhere nice to eat and decided to... More

From the moment we walked into the restaurant and were greeted by the lovely, friendly and efficient staff, we knew we'd found the right place to eat. Had a lovely meal, great atmosphere, attentive service and when they found out it was my birthday, they sang HB to me and in Italian - plus I received a complimentary dessert and... More

We went to La Locanda for sunday lunch and had a great time. The restaurant was full and the staff were helpful and attentive, and there was a great atmosphere. The food on a sunday was a mixture of Italian and traditional english so there was something for everyone to enjoy, and at £20 for 3 courses it represents excellent... More

This is a romantic, comfortable, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Staff are very caring and helpful, with very good service. Food is very impressive, the menu looked good so my boyfiiend and myself went for the full 3 course menu (plus we were very hungry!). Before we ordered, olives and french stick was served on the table. After finishing our starters,... More

Lovely meal at La Locanda last night. Glad to see their standard hasn't slipped & the food is as good as always, the calves liver in particular was delicious - perfectly cooked, which isn't always achieved with liver - this chef certainly knows what he is doing - faultless! We have flirted with other Italian restaurants in Eastbourne but always... More

Arriving in Eastbourne late on a Saturday night we asked our landlord where we should eat, straight away he recommended this place (and he was Italian!). We phoned to book and could only get a table after 9pm but we thought this was a good sign that they were busy. We were not disappointed, the service was excellent and the... More
