“Excellent Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

I discovered this by accident and was almost put of by its quietness at the time of my visit, but I should not have worried as the quality of the food and the service were excellent! I was also pleased with the choice on the menu for vegetarians, which is often a problem. It also looks more expensive than it is. If you don't like the hustle and bustle of the restaurants on La Rambla and appreciate lovely Italian food, this is the place for you!

“Pretty Good Place!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

I went here the other night with my family, a total of six people. We were looking for something simple and tasty, quick and easy for the entire family as we were all tired after a long day. "La Locanda" definitely fit the bill as we were nicely greeted at the front door and sat right away at a nice table in the back. We were attended to by our waiter who was from Italy, but spoke English & Spanish with no issues at all. We all ordered some appetizers, pizzas, and a few main courses. All of the food was better than average, but nothing that stood out as spectacular, just good. The flavors were good and the quality of the food was also good. Overall it is a nice place to go to, good service, good food, and definitely a step up from the typical "Tapas" tourist food that you find all over Barcelona. I would recommend this place for a simple meal that you can rely upon, and when you need to go somewhere but just can't decide.

“Good staff and decent food”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

Visited as our 1st couple of Tapas experiences elsewhere had not been great. So I knew the chance of an Italian would not be turned down by my other half. This place was within a 5 minute walk from our hotel towards the top end of Barric Gothic and a minute from the cathedral. Staff were very good with a warm welcome. Complimentary (rare so far in Barcelona!) cold garlic and rosemary bread strips were alongside a very nice mushrooms in truffle oil starter. We then followed this with a very nice and well presented lasagne, and a "mini" fillet steak. Mini probably was less than 120g so would recommend just go for whatever normal size is!

Overall a nice meal.

“organic burgers and homemade dessert”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

this place was a really good tip. we got there around 10pm and it was crowed, the service was good, fast, friendly and spoke spanish and english. the menue held something for every taste, we decided on burgers and that was a good choice, we were told that everything is fresh and homemade and that's what it tastes like! the burgers were delicious!! because of that we decided to order dessert as well, we had a slice of pie(served warm) with ice cream (also homemade) and a marscapone with chocolate and fresh fruit, both were very very good. all in all we were more than happy with the food an the price (obly 25€ for 2 people, dinner, drinks and dessert). I would recommend trying it!

“Wonderful "tapas"”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Right out of Plaça Urquinaona´s underground station, an excelent place for tapas. But be sure to get there early for "happy hour", ´cause it get really crowded.
