Excellent food, friendly service. Chose the grilled salmon which was cooked perfectly. Not too expensive either.

I had dinner with my husband on our recent trip to South Beach. I was so disappointed because i was looking forward to the resturant after seeing the high ratings on TA and the seafood selections on the menu. We got the fried shrimp and calarmari and stop after few bites and then my seafood pasta was so fishy. Both... More

This restaurant is nice whether you sit inside or outside. Most opt outside and were mostly taken so ended up inside. We enjoyed the very colorful decor & good ambient lounge music, away from the Ocean Drive craziness. The dishes were good, I had the risotto w/ calamari (only the precut rings:) could have been a little more creative and... More

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor, having gotten bored of the usually restaurants along Ocean Drive etc. La Locanda is on 5th and Washington, so a little out of the rush in South Beach and this was evident as we sat down. It was a calm meal with good and efficient service, and we weren't rushed out after finishing.... More

We were in a hurry and found this nice looking italian restaurant. They do take away aswell and we ordered two pizza's to go. It only took about 7-10 minutes at the most to wait for them and the pizzas were really good. Fire oven baked, thin italian crust and good toppings and taste! Recommend it and would go there...

I had to go to MIA to catch a flight, and I started craving some good Italian food. I decided to eat at this restaurant after reading the great reviews on tripadvisor. I had the lobster ravioli and it was absolutely fantastic. I had the tiramisu for dessert, and it was delicious. The macchiato was the best coffee I'd had... More

We had a lovely romantic dinner at La Locanda, we sat outside, had a reasonably priced bottle of red, some salad and pizza. I had an aubergine parmigiana pizza, what an invention! It was great and partner had prosciutto and ricotta, which was also lovely. Big, thin pizza's with lots of topping, not greasy at all. Following the waiter's recommendation... More
