Went to this restaurant for the first time for a birthday celebration and we weren't disappointed! Great choice of food, reasonable prices, excellent service, good choice of wine - what more could you want? We will be back.

As I could not go out this evening I treated my wife to a Valentine meal last night at La Locanda Del Duca in Eastbourne as we were in the area. Fabulous meal with excellent service from all the staff. Highly recommended.

We turned up for a pre theatre meal without a booking. It was almost empty but they said they could squeeze us in if we left by 1930. This was fine for us. By 1925 it was packed. The food, seafood risotto and lasagna was very good. The olives and bread were excellent and the service just right. Prices are... More

This is probably the best restaurant in Eastbourne. We often visit before going to the theatre. The menu is excellent and the service top notch. I cannot recommend this establishment highly enough. Most locals know its reputation and it is well founded. Try to eat here if you are a visitor to the town. You will not be disappointed.

We've been here several times over the past decade, and the food is always good, the service is also just as good and the place is usually full, so reservations are a very good idea. The decor isn't my cup of tea, though I can't put my finger on why - the artworks are attractive. The food however is always... More

One of our party ordered mango and ham but the dish arrived with melon and ham Requested change to replace melon with mango as ordered, returned the dish. It was then presented with just... More

Whilst many other restaurants in Eastbourne were fairly deserted this Saturday lunchtime La Locanda Del Duca seemed to be doing a roaring trade. It's not exactly cutting-edge, nor even great value for money, but its traditional Italian fare clearly goes down well with a loyal local clientele mainly of retired people and pensioners. Although in our fifties ourselves we felt... More
