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.

Travelling through Gisburn we spotted the small restaurant La Locanda at the roadside and made a note of its name to check out later on Tripadvisor. We were surprised by the many favourable reviews for such a small out of the way restaurant and immediately rang to see if we could get a table for the following evening at 6.30pm... More

We decided t meet our friends here for lunch as it was in between our houses. First of all there is no parking. We had to park up a side street in a residential area. The restaurant is quite small downstairs but fortunately there was only one other couple in so we got seats. The owner was pleasant enough. We... More

Most of our experience at this restaurant was good. We booked online and got a speedy and friendly confirmation. Good house wine and beer. Bread and olive oil provided, both extremely good. We shared a caprese salad as a starter, which was pretty good - it was a shame there weren't some good, flavoursome heirloom or Italian tomatoes to match... More

After moving into the area recently and hearing varying views of the La Locanda, we decided to give it a go on Thursday - the place was packed - what a good sign. We were greeted by the owner Cinzia. We advised her we had booked a table and she gave us menus. There was no where to sit however,... More

This Italian Resturant is well worth a visit.From the moment you enter the resturant the attention to service is wonderful. We were greeted on entry and drinks lists and menus were at hand within a couple of minutes. After selecting our drinks ( very reasonabley priced) we were then escorted to the upstairs dinning room. Very cosy dinning area on... More

We stopped off here after spending the morning at the auction market. We were dressing in scruffs and most likely smelt like a farm. However we were still made to feel at home and the service was friendly and very high standard. The food was out of this world !!! We all ate the chicken dish and it was perfect.... More

We live locally and I am ashamed to say this is the first time we have been to this little Italian Gem, it will not be the last. A party of 5 of us went for Fathers Day and selected from a specially selected Fathers Day menu which was excellent value. One of us is a wheelchair user and we... More

I loved this place. An italan restaurant without a pizza in sight. Of course there was beautiful pasta and other tasty italian treats. I didn't have a starter bit some olives, the were large and delicious. My main was sea food and spaghetti cooked in a paper bag in a tasty sauce. It was delicious. The pudding range tempted all...
