Living locally, I have visited this restaurant several times over the past years but not for the last couple of years. With family visiting from London, and somewhat alarmed by some negative reviews, it was with trepidation that I booked for five of is, with ages ranging from 10 to 73. How wrong I was to be cautious! The service... More

Small but outstanding restaurant. Is a bit pricey but that also reflects the quality of the food and service. If you want something special its worth a visit. Michelin rated.

This is a genuine northern Italian restaurant in a converted house in the quiet village of Gisburn, on the edge of the magnificent Forest of Bowland. In many ways it is an unexpected find. However, the quality was top notch. Everything about the restaurant, menu, ingredients and service screamed authenticity. We were a three-generational family party. The host was very... More

The menu is varied and exciting, food from locally produced suppliers. Wide range of specials and you would seriously believe that you were in Italy.. Service is very good and Maritzio and Cinzia are the most perfect hosts.

Been to La Laconda before although its not very close to where we live it's still worth the trip. It is so authentic you almost feel like you are in Italy instead of Gisburn! The food was delicious as always with friendly service. All their food locally sourced. They are handing out information regarding a vote you can place for... More

We popped for dinner at the rather charming la Locanda last night. The food, ambience and staff were all excellent. The food is all beautiful rural Italian fare. From exquisite risotto through to perfectly formed tortellini, everything was delicious, light but satisfying. The saffron risotto was stunning, as was the pumpkin/amoretti/butter sage tortellini. La Locanda is set in a beautiful... More
