We came here on the last day of a voucher offer and the place was packed to the rafters. Couldn't believe the quality of the food and given how busy it was the service was outstanding. The cooking was excellent and there is a great choice of quality Italian beers and wines. Highly recommended.

My husband and I have just returned from Italy where we sampled some fantastic cuisine. This has brought one of our favourite restaurants to mind, La Locanda, situated in Gisburn. We have visited this restaurant many times as the food is outstanding. Don't expect garlic mushrooms, pizza and garlic bread. What you will get is typical, authentic Italian cuisine of... More

We all had pasta dishes. Bland, boring & poor quality. The menu is uninteresting & difficult to find something for everyone. This is the second time we have eaten here, the previous time was before the current owners had it. The menu is exactly the same & the food no better. We will not be back for a 3rd time.

The owners are Italian and always produce an excellent menu. Genuine Italian cuisine in a comfortable small restaurant with good service at reasonable cost.

Lovely food, people and atmosphere. Highly recommended for adult diners. As it is authentic cuisine the kids were a little concerned that there were no pizzas and struggled a little for choice but they enjoyed their choices nonetheless.
