“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Went here for lunch - nice air conditioned restaurant on such a hot day! Had pizzas which were large and tasted good. Service good, a nice option not far from the beach.

“Perfect Price, Great Atmosphere, Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

4 college girls spending spring break in South Beach can get expensive. We were recommended to go here by another tourist who comes to South Beach all the time. This was one of the best meals we had in South Beach. We split two bottles of wine, we each got an appetizers, entree, and dessert and it came out to be about 30 dollars a person. For South Beach, that is a steal! The owner is very personable as well.
I highly recommend the "purse pockets." I went to Florence while studying abroad and got this in Florence, and it tasted the exact same in South Beach. You will not be able to find that type of meal anywhere else!

A lot of locals go there as well, so you know its good! The atmosphere is a mixture of everything, there were families, college girls like us, natives and people on dates. Recommend to anyone!

“Good food and quick service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We came here one early evening before we had to head to the airport to go home.

The food was good - especially the pasta with ragu - and the service was very friendly and efficient.

We didn't go for them but the pizzas looked very good too!

“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel and we were quite impressed with the service from the owner Francesco Cavalletti who took pride in making sure all his guests were well taken care of. We had the seafood pasta which was outstanding. Francesco introduced his wife and offered us complimentary liqueurs to end our fabulous meal. No hesitation recommending La Locanda.
