We arrived in Eastbourne for a walking weekend with friends and found La Locanda Del Duca and decided to try it. The three course menu at £20 was superb. We had a very generous portion of Smoked Salmon to start and a wonderfully creamy Goujons of Chicken as our main course. Desert was home made ice cream. The service was punctual, professional and cheerful. All in all, what more could you expect of a restaurant? Highly recommended, and not expensive.

Good traditional Italian food, but quite a bit overpriced.
Nice decor and atmosphere.
Service quite friendly.
Difficult parking nearby.

We were very rushed through from seating to choices and then when the main course arrived mine was more spaghetti than vongole with the few clams there like cockles. My partner chose the fish stew which was tomato puree and a couple of bits of salmon and prawns, very strange concoction.

The starters wereoverpriced and average

All in all, overpriced,not a relaxind dining experience at all with sub standard food. I am at a loss to see how this place got such good reviews

The previous reviews of this restaurant were given to us by customers of Belle Tout Lighthouse which we have previously recommended as exceptional value for money. We have also recommended the Thai restaurant in East Dean as outstanding.
We can now add the La Locanda Del Duca as a place not to be missed in the Eastbourne area. An exceptional range of Italian food, well cooked and presented with caring,polite and friendly staff.

The evening out was of the same high quality as the Lighthouse. We look forward to going back on our next visit in September.

Chose this restaurant off the tripadvisor list, and was not disappointed. We went on a Saturday night and didn't have a reservation, but they quickly found us a table anyways even though the restaurant was very busy. Service was quick and professional, food was delicious, nice and hot and fresh tasting, and having the complimentary bread, olives and liqueur with our coffee was a really nice treat. Pasta and risotto prices were good. Appetizers, meat and fish dishes were a little high we thought but the portions were good.
Would keep this place for special occasions, but would definitely go again.
Enjoy!
