Located in the South Miami Beach area, but away from the zone with noisy, lower quality, higher prices restaurants. Nice environment, either outside or inside. Selected inside because night was a little bit cold. Vivid customers, and even more vivid waiters (some italian language as well). Both appetizer and pasta were very good, closer to the Italian taste than other... More

I hade the spinach/cheese ravioli in blush sauce --- excellent. My wife had the linguini with clams... Excellent as well. Portions are just the right size. Would definitely go... More

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

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
