The front of the restaurant has much more ambiance than the back

My wife and I have seen this Italian restaurant on Lincoln many times for at least a year. We have both said that "we should go there." Well, finally, we did. We went last weekend. Unfortunately, we went on a Friday night, and with no reservations. We walked into the front of the restaurant which... read more

This little restaurant is delightful for a special treat. The food is authentically Italian (plus a few variations) and tastes wonderful. The service is also very Italian-like, as is the whole, intimate atmosphere. We will be happy to return one day. The only down-side is the lack of spirits for anyone who wants a drink other than wine or beer.... More

Locanda Positano is a really fine little ( about 10-12 tables) restaurant located on Lincoln Blvd. in an area about 1/2 mile north of Marina Del Rey. The menu is deep in special and unique flavors. The pasta is home made and served al dente. The wait staff is pleasant and efficient. The noise level can be a little load... More

The food is good here, not the usual Italian fare of pasta and pizza. It is a very small restaurant and the tables are placed near one another. When we went it was packed. Best to make a reservation. Only negative I would say is that the area is too small and the noise level of people talking high. We... More

The food here is absolutely delicious. Intimate terrific little restaurant that is completely unassuming from it's exterior. But once inside, you'll feel transported to a wonderful Roman cafe. I had Sea Bass, which was cooked to perfection and dressed magnificently. It came with with spinach and potatoes, which we're really tasty. We started out with Mussels and Clams in a... More

Locanda is a great little local Italian restaurant in Marina Del Rey. In an unassuming spot on Lincoln Blvd. next to the do-it-yourself car wash, the restaurant extends behind the exterior location. Now... the food reviews have been mixed, but the winners ARE TERRIFIC! Not everything gets an OMG reaction, but a few do... 1) Steak with shaved truffle. One... More

I don't know how this restaurant got a 4.5 from Open Table reviewers! The food was poor to average at best and for almost $100.00 per person you would think that the food could have been fresh! But, no, on the contrary, it tasted stale, over cooked from reheating and very salty (perhaps to camouflage the staleness). The only delicious... More

My husband and I went to Locanda Positano last week for the first time. I had purchased a Groupon for dinner for two. The restaurant is quite small and charming. We started by sharing a salad. It had thinly sliced baby artichokes with baby wild arugola and shaved parmesan cheese. It was delicious! I could have made a meal on... More
