We ate here our first night on Miami Beach and were pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant run by Italians and serving delicious authentic Italian cuisine. The pasta was el dente, the wine was lovely and the focaccia was ridiculously good. We would definitely recommend the food here.

We visited with friends whilst on holiday post cruise. The pizzas and pasta were all freshly made and very tasty. Service was a little slow though.

La Locanda.... A treat not to be missed. Crusty bread with tomato dipping sauce was the first tease for the taste buds. That nite's special pizza of burrata with truffles and truffle oil, sausage, and fresh basil.... was the best pizza this side of Naples. Every bite was full of flavor... the waiter tried to remove the plate however there... More

We saw the high ratings on Trip Advisor and stopped in for dinner. After waiting outside at the hostess desk for a while, one of our kids went inside to find someone to seat us. Finally, what we think was the owner showed up and he was not friendly. We were seated and sat for a period before someone showed... More

We picked this restaurant as every time we walked past, the food looked fantastic! We arrived shortly before a larger group and were worried that the size of the group would impact the service we received - it didn't. The food was prepared and served quite quickly and it has to be said it was fantastic. My brother had the... More

This is hands down, one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to in a long time. I want to come back tomorrow and try something else. I highly recommend this place. It's busy for a reason. If you have to wait, it's worth it. Delicious.

This has become a favorite. I probably dine here 3 or 4 times a South Beach visit. This time I have dined here three times thus far. I almost always start with their La Mista salad which is big and a bargain at their price. This visit I have had their Lasagna, Strozopessa (spelling approximate) in a meat sauce, and... More

We found this using TripAdvisor's "near me now" option. We were looking for a great meal and did not have any preferences. We came here and we're able to sit down right away, even on a busy Saturday night. We sat outside, they have tables along the sidewalk (perfect for people watching). There was even flowered vines wrapped around a... More

We enjoyed our italian style pizza at this place. It was really taste and large so you get great value for your money. Not exactly cheap but good quality and nice atmosphere. Service could be better though. We had to ask 3 times for the check for example.

My fave all-around place to dine on the beach. Fab grilled pizzas, plus perfectly prepared pastas and entrees. The decor is casually elegant with white tablecloths and napkins and fresh flowers on each table. But don't think it's SoBe snooty...The staff is efficient, warm and friendly. Once you step inside, you feel like a member of an extended Italian family.... More
