Run by a lovely Italien couple who could not do enough for you. Food is amazing the pears wrapped in ham and covered in a creamy sauce are to die for! Excellent value for such high quality food

We ate here early evening last Monday. The 2 course early diner menu was fantastic value for money and no scrimping on portions either. Highly recommended. Only problem was the air conditioning unit at the entrance was so loud we couldn't hear what the waiter was saying and he thought we couldn't understand him and kept apologising for his English!...

We eat here during our recent break at ribblesdale lodges. Saw it looked good on trip advisor so thought we would give it a go. Such a cute place inside, very typically italian with a italian family running it. I loved the lay out of the place & how it had kept in keeping with the food. Now the food,... More

We love this little bistro type authentic Italian eaterie. The food is fresh, seasonal & delicious, the service is friendly, knowledgable and Italian, you could almost be abroad. The beer menu is also popular with my other half. Would definitely recommend a visit, there is also a very reasonable early bird meal deal, but make sure that you book!

We enjoyed the food but as a couple found ourselves sat on a small table arranged at odd angles and was not comfortable at all especially when ordering wine and extra dishes with no where to put them. Also due to bad placing of table a waiter dropped a plate of food on my back leaving my top stained. We... More

You wouldn't expect to find an outstanding Italian restaurant in an old cottage in Gisburn but La Locanda is so good that it easily justifies a 90 minute journey. Exceptional local ingredients handled with care and a passionate devotion to traditional regional Italian cooking. The a la carte menu at first sight seems high priced though each dish is worth...

Apparently good food but we ran out of patience after waiting for a prebooked table for over half an hour with no update or apologies. We left to spend our time and money in one of the many fine establishments in the Ribble Valley

Well the food was simply outstanding but the service is very different. Very firm, judgemental and slightly strict. We really enjoyed it because of the quality of the food but be prepared to bite your lip at the service. The younger staff are very good but the the lady owner really scared us - little warmth or empathy. Lovely atmosphere... More

We went to this restaurant due to them having an arrangement with Park House Guest house. If you stay in the guest house the room charge includes the set menu at the restaurant to the value of £37. However they are very accommodating and this can be put to the cost of your meal if you don't fancy the set... More
