Top notch Italian in a very picturesque building. The inside is nicely decorated with a seating area for pre-diner drinks while reading the extensive menu. The wine list has a good range of options. The food and service were all top notch. Would happily go again...

Selection of beers great and the food was spectacular. We honestly could not believe the quality found in this little village practically in the middle of nowhere! You HAVE to try this... More

Bought the travel zoo deal for £45 which consisted of 4 courses plus bread and a glass of prosecco each for the two of us, one of the items was off the menu and a couple of minor mistakes just added to the enjoyment because it just makes you realise this is a family business which both the owners are...

I have visited La Locanda for lunch today with a group of close friends as three of us have birthdays this week. I let the chef know beforehand that I needed a special diet and I was assured that there wouldn't be a problem. I was able to choose from several choices on the menu which the chef was happy...

Every moment of our visit was exceptional. The team couldn't have done more for us. We like to try and pronounce the dishes in the native / printed language so be patience from the waitress was much appreciated! The beer selection was larger than I had expected which was great as I've discovered some new beers. The menu was what... More

We have just had a fantastic meal here. Interesting, authentic italian dishes cooked with care, and served by attentive staff with knowledge about the food and good advice to offer. Superb soup with tortellini, homemade bread and amazing olive oil. Equally good main courses (although if I really, really had to find any criticism the risotto was a touch over... More
