Dining on the outdoor patio is nice. Not a ton of people watching due to the location but it's still very nice. Location is good w/ easy walk from many popular spots. Had a truffle pasta. All was great and would recommend.

Honest italian food at its best. If you eat there you feel like in northern italy. No compromises, just straigjtforward traditional italian dishes. Try the pasta. It's homemade.

Hands down the best, most authentic Italian restaurant I've been to. My husband and I tried the Caesar salad, spaghetti w/meatballs, the Fiocchetti Ripieni con Pera e 4 Formaggi (Purses of pasta filled with 4 kinds of cheese and pear in light cream sauce and fresh arugula), and the Penne del'appennino, based on our Air BNB host recommendations. Wow everything... More

Okay so it's a Locanda and maybe not a Trattoria? I don't have my Italian dictionary handy but this place delivers Big on the flavors and the service is very attentive. The owner got up from his table to seat our party at "His table" the other night and the love was felt. It's a hidden SoBe gem which I... More

Been here a few times, small cozy Italian restaurant, amazingly well prepared food. Impeccable service, its proprietor Francesco is usually around making sure everything is to his guests liking. Had very good cocktails prior to dining. The food is always good. Nearby options in this part of South Beach will be super pricey, therefore you can't beat the quality, service,... More

the Food is very good. typical italian dishes from a good qualtiy. we had a table in front of the restaurant, which was nice, but the Restaurant nearby and the locanda compete in loud outdoor music. the Service wasn`t attentive at all.

I must admit that I expected more of the standard of restaurants (food quality) in Florida. Especially when the average price of a main dish is around $20. A very decent exception was La Locanda in Miami Beach. Our family (2A&2C) had all different dishes and we all loved it! We all commented that the tastes were really delicious; the... More

After a little research, we reserved at La Locanda and was greeted in Italian by the hostess (a good sign, she spoke English by being Italian I could converse with her and already got a good feeling...). We were not disappointed, the place was packed (the resto beside it was empty), service was prompt and courteous. Lots of good real... More
