Great place with authentic Italian cuisine, perfect for families. Best pizza in town and my favorite is Strazzopretti della Locanda (best bologna ever!)

Amazing quaint local restaurant right in South Beach! Loved it and can't wait to go back. On our last day in South Beach, I was sitting by the pool at our hotel and met a person from Minnesota who visits regularly. We started talking about...restaurants and I asked him for a recommendation. He said his favorite is La Locanda. He guaranteed that my wife and I would love it. So we did; we went. Actually ran into him and his daughter there. The owner is so friendly and made sure that we were completely comfortable and satisfied throughout the night. Our waiter, Ceasar was the best. This is a true Italian restaurant. I can't say enough good things about it. We can't wait to go back. It is the best. Recommend the bow ties with Salmon although the choice was so hard. And they have real Italian beer! You will love it. Homemade pastas and the salads are fantastic as well.More

We had a very good dinner at La Loconda. The service was very good and it was possible to bring a bottle of wine if you paid “cork money”. We brought a bottle of Champagne and at once the waiter brought us a winecooler. We...all had pasta cources and we all enjoyed our servings. Among us we had a vegan, and she also find the serving very good. If you are placed outside there can be some noice from the street. We made a reservation the day before, as we would like to have a table outside, but there were still tables inside. We had three children among us and they found the menu attractive. We might come back during our vacation.More

A great choice if you crave for some homemade Italian food. We had some nice meatballs for starters, and got their stone oven pizzas for main. Really good and friendly service from our waiter. Had their Punica Montessu red, what a great choice.

We have been many times and the location is good in the quieter part of South Beach. The dishes have been the same on the menu for many years and the prices go up each year. The pizzas are huge and should be shared. Pasta...dishes are very tasty. The salads could be more inventive. The wine is highly overpriced but that’s not unusual in the USA where decent EU wines are imported.More

Thank you so much for your review, we really appreciate, unfortunately some items go up since the are preparing with imported ingredients. Wine believe me is not so expensive for what we paid but anyway we really hope to see you very soon.

Found the restaurant on the interweb and did not regret it at all. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly and welcoming. The ambiance is a little more low key than many of the other restaurants in the area, more italian maybe :-) We...liked it a lot and came back more times on our Miami holiday!More

Bartender left the bar for 10-15 minutes with 5 people at the bar. I had not ordered my main entree and my appetizer had been removed for about 5 minutes. Its not so much that it was horrendous-you just started wondering if she was ever...coming back. When I asked the bus boy if he could get her he told me that she was coming back and kept walking to clear a table even though the restaurant was less than half full.More

Little piece of real Italy! Genuine Italian pizza, perfect al dente pasta, tender seabass in lemon sauce, heavenly desserts - we shared four and enjoyed every bit. Very friendly, professional, Italian-speaking staff. Real experience of Italian hospitality and amazing food!
