The food and service were very good with lots so food choices on menu. Despite beautiful weather we chose not to sit outside because the tables are on a crowded sidewalk, very close to parked cars, with pedestrian traffic brushing by diners. We observed from a pleasant table inside by the window. My only criticism would be the wine list.... More

Went to this restaurant last year at the same time and had a great experience. Remember how very authentic the restaurant and food were. The food is still wonderful. There were four of us and everyone had a wonderful meal. I had the pasta with pears and it was absolutely terrific. As we sat at the table many of the... More

Yeah, I can honestly say that I have not had pasta this amazing before. The pappardelle was delicate, and beautiful, and perfectly prepared and served with a rich, tomato, porcine sauce. Every bite was a gift from heaven.

Every year after Christmas, we travel to South Beach to celebrate the New Year. A few years ago we discovered this fabulous restaurant on Washington Ave., below 5th street. When we first entered La Locanda, without a reservation, the owner, Francisco, greater us like we had been regular customers. The restaurant was full, but he found us a table. Now... More

We ended up at La Locanda after being told of a 3 hour wait at Joe's Stone Crab. I was so disappointed that I could not go to Joe's so I began my meal already a little sour. Well, our server turned our night around! She was fantastic, attentive and spot on with recommendations. The lobster ravioli was to die... More

A truely nice Italian dinner at the La Loconda on our first night out in South Beach. Next door neighbour Fratello La Bufalo was way too crowded. Had delightful starters and some excellent pastas for maine course. Nice to be seated outdoors, too, as this stretch of Washington Ave is not heavely trafficed. Escape Ocean Drive eateries, not always serving... More

I got a recommendation for this restaurant from the front desk manager at our hotel. Everything my significant other and I ate was superb! I am a pasta lover, so I got the pasta pomodoro, and he got a calzone. We also got focaccia bread to split. The pasta was perfectly al dente and the sauce was absolutely perfect. I... More

My wife and I just went last night as it was pretty empty but the quality of food was excellent! We had the spinach and cheese ravioli with pink sauce and a pear based ravioli with a 4 cheese sauce. Well put together and close to S Beach!
