I enjoyed bottarga for the first time, together with spaghetti and clams and it was amazing! Comparing to other places where I tasted the same dish afterward, this was the best! Not to mention the very warm and professional service. Strongly recommend!

We were looking for another restaurant on the same street when we came across Locanda. The owner was welcoming and helpful in his recommendations. We settled for the sharing antipasto and the house white wine. The octopus in a tomato sauce was tasty as was...More
