I'll keep this short and sweet. The gnocci was prepared with an orange sauce no better than Stouffer's. The lasagna at Sibilla blows the lasagna at this place away. The appetizers were served with the entrees. The waiter even said in his broken english "the food is good yes?, the service not so good". He said this two times during our meal. The reviewers giving this place excellent reviews must be high on crack or something because this place was awful. The only reason I didn't rate this place as terrible is because the atmosphere was pretty good. If you must go to this place, go for drinks only. Go somewhere else to eat. In addition, we did not have the pizza, so I can't complain about that.

This evening we dined at La Conanda. We have been to this fine neighborhood restaurant five times now. Each time we have been pleased, but never like tonight. We arrived on a Friday night without a reservation. Not a problem, we received a comfortable table with ample room.

We were fortunate to have been placed in the pleasant company of Ivana -our lovely server with a great combination of old-world charm, and youthful enthusiasm. She presented menus, specials and took our wine order all very efficiently. The wine was corked - very off. There was no argument about having it replaced. In fact, the matter was resolved immediately and without any fuss. Ivana was quiet, but always present.

After having visited five times now, I would have to argue that La Locanda offers one of the best pizzas anywhere; yes, anywhere. The dough is soft and light, like a cloud with gently burnt crust. The toppings are present, but not overbearing.

This evening I had the pleasure of ordering the pasta (ravioli) special. The presentation was simple, but the meal itself very good. My wife had the pasta with seafood - an excellent choice.
The food was all prepared perfectly. The follow-up attention was exceptional.

We had the pleasure of meeting the manager, Francesco Cavatelli. Francesco was charming and very professional. He asked about our experience several times and made a point of seeing us to the door at the end of our exceptional dinner.

La Locanda may not be one of the exceptionally "fancy" venues in the "south of fifth" area, it is without question a very serious restaurant that takes its food and service very seriously.

Best Wishes, Colin A. Burns

Perfect seating outside this evening in February. Very friendly servers, good knowledge about the food. Very, very good Italian food, actually perfect. Best we have got in Miami. Why not 5 stars? Wine by the glas were not all perfect: the pinot gris was too warm and not a big wine...
We could also have used olive oil and pepper on the table. Asking for pepper the waiter came and grinded some pepper, ok, but we could have used the pepper to the next course, too.
But 4 big stars!
