Good food and great service

Visited yet again - we always make a point of eating here when we visit Eastbourne. Great service, fresh and well cooked food, varied menu and reasonably priced. Well worth a try.

La Locanda Del Duca is a more upmarket Italian restaurant (I did not feel out of place in a suit and tie) with excellent food and wine choices. We were made to feel very welcome straight off, and we were well looked after despite the restaurant being very busy. The restaurant has a two and three course set menu as... More

Chosen on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews, we weren't disappointed. The restaurant's clientele are, to be diplomatic, well inside Eastbourne's demographic, but the restaurant isn't fuddy-duddy at all and the young and enthusiastic Italian staff help give a welcoming atmosphere. The food was just fine. I enjoyed the freshly grilled sardines as a starter, followed by lamb cutlets and... More

Ate here with my wife on a Sunday evening in rainy late July. Booked a table earlier in the day based on the reviews here. Arrived and taken to a nice table, soon provided bread and some olives. Had a couple of cokes to quench a thirst. Ordered the goat's cheese and the scallops starters. Goat's cheese was really tasty,... More

Had dinner recently with friends as a special birthday celebration. Lovely atmosphere, busy, but still personable service. Attentive staff, lovely wine with carafe of soda for spritzer making, delicious food and very reasonable pricing for us all! Thank you again...

A well established restaurant in the centre of Eastbourne. The interior is slightly dated and traditional and seems to attract a mature clientele. The service was wonderful, attentive and pleasant, couldn't fault it. Other restaurants would do well to have a meal here and learn from this family. Food was good, spaghetti bolognese piping hot and tasty. Complimentary lemon sorbet,... More

Found by accident. The service was fabulous as we were late in after a Bandstand show on a Friday night. The food was ok, the wine not so great, but we were welcomed at a late (for Eastbourne!) hour & not rushed at all.

We went to this restaurant on a Friday night recently and had booked in advance. Glad we had because it was very busy and had a great atmosphere. We ate from the set menu and two courses were enough for us as the portions are a good size. Tables were a little close together, but not too much of a... More

One of the better Resaurants we ate in during our stay in Eastbourne. We ordered the Sardines which were wonderful. My partner then had a king prawn Pasta which she described as tasty. I ordered a filet steak. The steak was a touch over cooked in my opinion, but I put this down to the fact that a 'Medium' means... More

Dined with family, husband, daughter, son in law and two grandaughters, celebrating the younger ones birthday. Had three courses each and drinks, all the food was very good.
