“Friendly, Excellent Service and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Visited here for the first time as a party of four early Friday evening.

Service was impeccable and could not fault the food. We had four different fish/ seafood starters followed by pasta and risotto dishes and all were piping hot, bursting with flavours and good size and presentation. In addition, we were provided with a good selection of bread and olives in advance of the food arriving. Wine prices were better than in many other places.

It is relaxed but also has an old fashioned Italian feel. A nice touch was also being personally welcomed by the Manager.

We could not manage desserts, but instead finished with coffees and complimentary liquors. Total bill (including two bottles of wine was £118 (less than £30/ head.

Utterly enjoyable and we will be back again very soon.

“Service very good, food mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We decided to visit La Locanda Del Duca as we have had some nice pizzas at their 'sister' restaurant Pomodoro e Mozzarella. Sadly we were disappointed. It was a busy Saturday night, and I must say that the service was very good (near excellent), but the food was disappointing. My partner's pasta main course was dry and mine had very few 'special' ingredients and tasted a bit manufactured. The starters were quite expensive for what they were. We won't be going back to La Locanda for pasta - although it is a chain, the Eastbourne Prezzo food tastes much better.

“Extremely Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Staying in Eastbourne on business for a couple of nights and after checking Tripadvisor, visited this place and definitely wasnt disappointed.

Only about 8 people in on a Tuesday night so quiet but i think regardless, the service would be of the same high attentive standard regardless of numbers. I was given a few pieces of bread and some tasty olives while ordering and went for the Tortellini with ricotta cheese and spinach/mushrooms.

This arrived promptly and was gorgeous - creamy and very flavoursome. I followed this with three homemade ice creams with a choice of about 8 to pick from - again very nice

On paying the bill i was given a leaflet with 10% off for a meal till the middle of January so i may take trip there tomorrow as well and make sure this really was as good as i thought it was!

“Excellent Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

4 of us ate there last night. Lovely ambience, very warm welcome and very friendly and attentive staff. All four meals were first class and we didn't feel the dishes overall were that expensive, The meats/chicken were all tender and very tasty as was the accompanying selection of vegetables. All in all a lovely evening, it was our first visit but certainly wont be our last.
