Our first visit to La Locanda but certainly won't be our last. Beautiful restaurant, passionate owners and wonderful wonderful food. In our opinion this is as good as it gets for the authentic italian dining experience. Cannot wait to return to do it all again. 6 stars ******

Avery pleasant experience it was our first visit and we where made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent and at no time you felt you was under pressure to eat up and get out like some Italian restaurants.Cannot wait to return.

My fiancé books this as surprise for my birthday. We both had starters, and we're very impressed, (having previously had an horrendous experience at a well known Italian, we were a tad nervous). We had mozzarella balls and bruschetta for starter. Both were huge portions, and extremely reasonably priced. I fancied fish for my main, but as I'd dint fancy... More

Small restaurant but full of character, excellent menu with genuine Italian dishes sourced from certain parts of Italy. Food was amazing, excellent tastes, professional and very polite staff! Prices slightly expensive but well worth it for the food and professional service!

Fabulous food and service. Beautifully cooked authentic Italian food - every element of all courses was utterly delicious! Wished we lived closer so that we could visit more often. Without doubt one of the best meals we have ever had.

We were deliberately overcharged and the owner claimed the charge was for bread at different charges.

This was our second visit and did not disappoint. The food is lovely and the best value is the two course early menu. Loved the home made breads and dips. Its a pity that the restaurant is so small - we are limited to downstairs due to one of the party having limited mobility. The atmosphere and service are great... More

We revisited La Locanda last week and had another superb meal. The variety and quality of the food and the service were excellent - Anna and Pepe, our staff ,were attentive and very humorous! No wonder La Locanda has won gold awards! We stayed at the Park House Hotel nearby ( as part of the 'deal')which was also excellent as... More
