“Really authentic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed yet another tasty authentic Italian dinner here, this time with our kids. They are not easily pleased, but the pizza and pasta got rave reviews from all present. The cold meat antipasto is my personal favourite and it gets my vote every time. Our waiter, Lionel, was professional and friendly, and deserves a special mention.

“'Real' Italian cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

La Locanda is a family owned and run restaurant in George. They make their own meats and cheeses and present Italian food as it should be. The lobster risotto is sublime!! Wonderful welcoming hosts and atmosphere - a must if you are visiting George.
