First of all, I think the name of this place has changed to Gastroteca, but since there isn't really any sign out front, it's hard to tell. I quite enjoyed the interior decor of this place.

We were visiting family in the area and wanted to grab a bit to eat. The restaurant was convenient and menu looked good, so we gave it a try. We were given a warm welcome and quickly seated by our soon-to-be attentive waitress. The atmosphere is eclectic, if not bohemian, but appeared to be clean and updated. Our food arrived... More

We found Locale wandering the neighborhood - and liked it so much we returned a second evening in a row. We enjoyed four different pasta dishes and several appetizers. The staff was all incredibly pleasant. We even had the opportunity to meet the chef/owner John Parlatore made our visit even more special.

Went here for a wedding brunch that was open only to the guests of the wedding the day before, so it had a set menu of food and drink. The food was delicious and the location was great!

We went here for a family brunch and it was pretty good food. The only minus about it was that our poached eggs in our eggs Benedict's were overcooked and did not leak the way they are supposed to when pierced with a fork. We told the waitress and she promptly returned with properly cooked eggs. I noticed that they... More

We went to Locale after reading some lovely reviews on Trip Advisor and Google. We were seated outside on a beautiful first day of Summer evening. Our waitress was delightful. We ordered our apps and entrees and then sampled the wonderful olive oil that had a nice bite to it (our waitress said that the oil is steeped with chilis).... More
