Superb!

There aren't many Italian restaurants left in our part of England which can even dream about delivering what La Locanda manages. We had lunch and were warmly greeted by the lady owner when we arrived, bar area was a bit chilly as it was a very cold day, but we were assured that the restaurant was... read more

I took a party of 12 for a 6 course taster menu. The Owner is a delight who gave a full explanation of all dishes prior to the meal. All dishes were superb and beautifully presented by excellent staff in a timely fashion. The price was a special deal but I would have willingly paid the full price for such... More

This Italian restaurant was recommended by me daughter for which I publicly thank her. We were greeted most heartily and following a drink in the small bar area were quickly taken to our table. We had previously downloaded the menu so we had decided on what our choice was earlier. We were not disappointed, the food, and the intermezzo were... More

Visited here with my husband for a 6 course taster menu with a travel zoo voucher. The owner is a lovely lady who shows a great deal of passion for her food and explained each course to us. We enjoyed all six courses but the desert was to die for. Will definitely be returning. A very romantic and calm environment

We booked for the 6 course tasting menu on a Sunday evening expecting it to be quiet, especially given the inclement weather and it being January! It was pleasantly busy with a warm welcome and a happy atmosphere. Cincia was on hand to welcome us and talk us through our menu. Not only did this serve to whet our appetites... More

It was a real treat to visit La Locanda for dinner on Saturday evening. We were made to feel very welcome and treated to delicious freshly made bread and olive oil after we ordered. The food was all very nicely presented and delicious. I was very impressed with the wealth of choices.

I had heard much about this restaurant and I was not disappointed. Attended on a very busy Saturday night. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Had the superb Guazetto to start which is a Livornese seafood stew. Exceptional layering of flavours. Superb bread cooked on the premises. Had chicken with mozzarella wrapped in speck. The portions were very generous. Too full for dessert... More
