The place was absolutely packed on a Thursday night so we were pleased we'd booked. Despite this, the service was very good with the possible exception of our second carafe of water which the waiter forgot but then later apologised and we suddenly got two carafes within a couple of minutes of each other but this wasn't particularly important.

Wonderful meal beautifully presented with faultless service. We were early birds lucky to be accommodated as the restaurant was soon packed with a likely regular clientele - says it all doesn't it. Highly recommended.

We visited on Saturday night for the first time and the food was the best Italian I have tasted for years the sauces reminded me of Romano's in Preston street, The service was excellent I definitely will return.

An Eastbourne friend suggested we eat here but hadn't thought it necessary to book. Amazed to find it throbbing on a Tuesday evening, but il padrone found us a comfortable table. Simple, fresh and generous genuine Italian dishes were a delight - insalata tricolore, proscuitto and melon, vitello with a mushroom sauce, fegato and salmon were all well cooked and... More

Wonderful meal at this restaurant. Extensive menu and reasonable wine list. Everything myself and my husband had was delicious and beautifully presented. Delightful waiting staff. Quite busy for a weekday lunchtime, with many regulars who all seemed to be as impressed as we were.

My wife and I spent an overnight stay in Eastbourne as part of a wedding anniversary. We had found the good reviews of La Laconda on line and decided to give it a try. It was well worth the drive down and the walk from the hotel. We were lucky to have booked, as within minutes it was full and... More

We eat here regularly and the food is always the same exceptional standard. We visit for lunches and dinners sometimes as a couple but often with friends and the service is always charming, friendly and professional

Do not know if they can deliver this quality of product every time will have to go back to see. We'll done to everyone that... More
