The place is awesome, the atmosphere, the music, the staff uniform and attitude and of course the food, mainly the Lebanese dishes made with a modern twist. Even the traditional fattoush was out of this world, the ingredients were very fresh and so tasty, the best I ever had. The only issue we had was the shisha invasion on the... More

We have visited this place out of curiosity and we were glad of our choice. The fattouch (salad) dish can serve up to three people easily, it contains new items that you don't find in any other lebanese fattouch such as the fried bread filled with onion and citrus dressing. Try the hommos ahmar and the grilled kebbeh, wonderful dishes... More

What I loved the most about locanda: The atmosphere and the cozyness. The food is quite delicious (that pizza with figs on top, I forgot the name) but it was really good. The service is good as well.

A very special Lebanese cuisine with a different twist from the traditional way that is unique to each type of food. The service is friendly and location is amazing in the middle of old town facing the old Crusades citadel

When our friends told us that we will go for Locanda for a dinner, the only thing that came to my mind that we will be experiencing one of the cheap touristic scams. Well, I was so wrong! A generous place, colorful and a lot of diversity in the menu. Above all, prices were reasonable. Regards to the chef for... More
