Great Food Service Uninviting

We purchased a voucher on Travelzoo for £45 for a four course meal for two. We got delayed in traffic end route and phoned the restaurant but got no reply to say we were late for our table. It was a Wednesday night so when we arrived we explained to a frosty owner. Her attitude was a disgrace. We... read more

This place was was something else. It's a long time since our visit but having read recent reviews nothing seems to have changed. Sizewize, it's like cramming into a Wendy House with your kids. The lady who took our order, and I suspect she was the owner as well was definitely on a mission. She went into minute detail regarding... More

It's a shame but the other reviews which highlight the poor service are evidently accurate. We went for the first time on Saturday night to celebrate my mothers birthday. Having been kept waiting for 15 minutes by the door, my wife picked up the menus which were close by. The owner suddenly appeared and abruptly took them back off her... More

We have been here twice now and although the food is good, the service from the lady owner is rather off-putting. She could at least try to look cheerful.

This restaurant was recommended and with very good reason. This is a husband and wife team and what a team! Very welcoming and knowledgeable . A very delicious and authentic menu. No champagne because it's not Italian. We ate so much because everything on the menu looked lovely and what we had was all great and freshly prepared. Very intimate... More

We were lucky to of been given a voucher for La Locanda as a Christmas gift. We were first in the restaurant, and were given a very warm welcome by the owner/wife. Our coats were taken, and we were presented with the lovely 4 course menu.(wrapped in ribbon, like a scroll) The menu was explained in detail to us, and... More

Visited La Loconda after a recommendation and was not disappointed. This is an authentic Italian restaurant so don't expect a Pizza Express menu - not a pizza in sight! The menu is interesting and varied and gave the opportunity to try some new dishes. There were four in our party and we all enjoyed the food. I had the venison... More

This is our third visit to La Locanda and we both love the atmosphere,the authenticity of the restaurant,the quality of the food and presentation of the dishes we have ordered, are imaginative and are of, in our opinion, Michelin star standard. We had heard of the owners shortcomings in reviews and by word of mouth,but had never experienced her inadequacies... More

This place was recommended by numerous friends so I booked for my husbands 40th and it did not disappoint! This is no standard Italian, a long way off a pizza /pasta place, it is far far more. All the ingredients are of excellent quality and there is a real knowledge of what foods are served which which oil, wines etc.... More
