Good Food but not very welcoming

We arrived on spec and were told there was a table available. The Italian Lady showed us to a seat and eventually took our order. She doesn't come across as very friendly but I'm not sure if this is because she doesn't understand English very well. Anyway we ordered a bottle of wine and... read more

We had made a reservation but had to wait for 30 minutes before being shown to our table. My impression was that our table was ready form the moment we arrived but that this was a ploy to get us to order some drinks from the bar. We did order some drinks but there were only chairs for two of... More

I understand that with such tiny premises La Locanda can't accommodate early arrivals - I really do. What I don't understand is why any business, let alone a reasonably high-end restaurant which relies on it's good name would allow guests to be welcomed with indifference (young man at the bar) and abruptness bordering on rudeness (lady owner). It may have... More

Great service, great food, great value. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and both appreciated Italian food without the obligatory page of pizzas and pasta dishes clogging up the menu. Would recommend the roasted pears with bresaola - really tasty!!

I have eat here three times since October 14 and each time was a treat. Authentic food and attentive service, this is not the type of place to pop in when you have a one hour slot though, they like to wine and dine you the old fashioned way, so set yourself a few hours aside and you will be...

Just dropped in to La Locanda for a spot of lunch on the way back from a business trip. We have not been before it was a spur of the moment decision. What a find! We went for the menu of the day at £14.00 for 2 courses. My wife went for calamari with tempura vegetables and then salmon with... More

Had a meal here with my wife and I don't understand any of the poor reviews. The service was excellent and everyone was very attentive. The food was the best Italian I have had and I just wish I lived close enough to eat here regularly.

Delicious menu of authentic Italian food with knowledgeable friendly service. Wide choice of wines again with friendly advice on menu matches. Definitely worth a visit. A hidden gem.

Food and wine was good and well presented and good value on the combined Dinner B&B deal with the Park House but why did it take so long? Okay the restaurant was over half full but we went in at 7 and left at 10-30, we were not in a rush but, more than 3 hours?
