We had a great time over dinner in this lovely restaurant. The fish dishes we had were perfect: spada, mixed grilled sea food, but we thought that my Mother had the best of the best and that was the fish soup. A perfect rose primitivo was recommended to us by a beautiful and kind lady who might be the owner.... More

We ate here twice - once in the evening and once at lunchtime. Both times the food was very tasty and there was a nice atmosphere. We sat in the outside covered area. It is open only from 1- 3pm for lunch and then again 8pm to midnight in the evening. So bear that in mind if you are planning... More

It is now April and the weather is getting warmer. We returned to La Locanda for lunch and found it as good as in November. We had a table outside in the covered area and were well looked after. We had a glass of local white wine as an aperitif, and our waiter suggested for a red a blend of... More

After a cosy walk through the lighted streets we sat down in the inside part of the restaurant. Kind service, but to be admitted merely in Italian. We took the catch of the day. Of course we had to wait a little before the fresh fish was turned into a tasty plate, but the anti-pasti filled the gap. The white... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and I am happy to say it lived up to its reputation. Both starter and main course were divine. The waiting staff were attentive. Would definitely come back.

The high quality food expected was mediocre. We barely toched the main courses. The atmosphere was not cosy, at the end we had to rise and ask for attention. A complete disappointment l'm afraid.

We booked for lunch on Sunday which we have discovered is a good practice as this the day that so many Italian families and friends go out for a good lunch. Without a booking we have had to go searching for somewhere else. La Locanda had been recommended by a friend as an excellent place to go to enjoy the... More

We came here late morning for a coffee. Service okay. Our daughters went back later on for snacks and a cocktail. Snacks good, cocktails good too. We joined them for a beer. Good place to people watch.
