“Aways a pleasure”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

There are a lot of restaurants that have good food but few that make you feel like you're a wanted guest. The service is fast but not intrusive. The staff takes the time to make suggestions and to ask about your likes and desires. I like the cheese plate with a bottle of good wine. The Grolla drink is something you have to try. The ossobuco alla milanese is perfect. A nice place for lunch, dinner or a late night drink espresso and tiramisu.

“I'll be coming back”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

My friends and I dined here last month for the first time and we will definitely be coming back. I had the braised beef short ribs and the meat fell off the bone, it was delicious and I highly recommend them. I had to try my guest's chilean sea-bass purely because of the presentation, the fish melted like butter on my tongue.
The service was fantastic, everyone we dealt with was extremely friendly with thorough knowledge of the menu. Our meals and drinks were prompt and we were well taken care of.
The ambience was warm and inviting and we decided to stay for a drink at the bar after our meal. The bartenders were a delight and it capped off a perfect evening.
Looking forward to returning very shortly

“Better than expected - a real treat”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Having read some previous reviews we were a little worried but we had one of the best meals of our 15 day vacation in Locando del Largo. The menu was interesting and varied and seemed to offer something more imaginative than the standard Italian fare. The food was well cooked and arrived on time and there were some nice touches - particularly the home cooked bread.
Wine was a little over priced and some of the waiting staff a little on the stiff and formal side - but overall the atmosphere created is enjoyable and classy. Others have clearly not had the same experience but we left having had some delicious food, attentive service and a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
