We had a five hour layover between flights and decided to throw caution to wind and venture to Miami Beach for lunch. We grabbed the 150 airport flyer to Miami Beach and walked around a bit. We stumbled upon a block with some nice- looking spots. On this particular block there are several restaurants that all look appealing replete with... More

This is a type of restaurant your Italian aunt would run. She would come out and say hi, and make sure your meal is finest and you are treated well. I took my parents there for a late lunch, and there were lots of Italian families eating in the venue, which is a good sign. Linguine Vongole and Beef Carpaccio... More

We visited mid week early evening so the place was pretty empty. On our visit, the hostess was helpful in getting us seated however trying to attract the two waitresses later on was difficult as they were chatting together and never looked up once. In the end the bar person attended to us. It's fair to say, that whilst the... More

The price for a salad with 6 grilled shrimp on a bed of mixed greens, and a bowl of gnocchi with tomato sauce, bottle of import beer, and an orange juice, 50$ including a 20% tip and taxes... my opinion the gnocchi was excellent, but it was my first time trying gnocchi... I will be trying it again only based... More

We discovered this restaurant a few years. The owner, Francesco, from day one treated us like we were regulars. The food is wonderful and reasonably priced. We know most of the staff and they know us. It is always like seeing old friends or family when we return each year. There is indoor or outdoor seating, but we prefer to... More

Impossible to believe they are Italian. If you order pasta or gnocchi you'll get a big but tasteless and RANCID dish, if you take any other course you'll get an invisible amount of food, again of a very dubious quality. What's certain is that Price will leave you slack jawsed!

My wife, children and I have been to La Locanda numerous times over the past 7 years. La Locanda is located close to the intersection of Washington Avenue and 5th Street, so it is very convenient to anyone visiting South Beach. While our primary experiences have been with dinner, we have had lunch there several times, and have never been... More
