I loved the original La Locanda on Shea and was devastated when it closed. This was my first visit to the new location and it did not disappoint. My old favorite, Veal Piccata, wasn't on the new menu but the chef made it for me...More

We found La Locanda on opentable and we were a bit skeptical because they had last minute opening for eight of us on a Friday night. As soon as we walked in, we knew we were in for a fabulous evening! We all loved the...More

Found this restaurant on Open Table and booked it without knowing too much about it. Ends up being a 10 minute walk from Main Street, which we didn‘t mind at all, but it‘s not smack in the middle of Old Town Scottsdale. Looked like mainly...More

Two of us for dinner. Hostess greeted us with a big friendly smile. We were seated and our order was taken. We opted for the pumpkin ravioli special and the black linguini with seafood. We decided to share a Caesar salad. Everything was delicious. We...More

This is not the La Locanda we knew at Scottsdale and Shea. Menu is nice but a bit high, service was good, atmosphere was COLD, literally. The Caesar and Power salads were ok but should be for $14-15. Restaurant was very noisy and the music...More

This location used to be a bar and doesn't look much different. While out of the central Scottsdale action, the ambience needs improvement. The pasta was actually outstanding but the martinis were priced New York style at $16. Sure miss their former location. Wish them...More

Six of us ate here; we had all bought Groupons. All I can say is, be hungry! The very best thing we had was the Osso Buco. Since there was only one left, we all split it as an appetizer -- mmmmm! We all had...More

We started with a shared Caesar salad which was very good. Just enough dressing and a half hard boiled egg which was unusual and interesting. My main course was grilled branzino fish and grilled cauliflower. Both were good but nothing outstanding or different. The other...More

We decided to try this as it was on Groupon. We arrived on a Friday night around 4:40. I was afraid that it would be a boisterous place due to it's proximity to Old Town. We were the only ones there. By the time we...More
