“Nice Italian in South Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor, having gotten bored of the usually restaurants along Ocean Drive etc. La Locanda is on 5th and Washington, so a little out of the rush in South Beach and this was evident as we sat down. It was a calm meal with good and efficient service, and we weren't rushed out after finishing. The food, both pizza and pasta was great, as was the chocolate dessert. The pizza was fire oven baked and there was plenty of selection for all tastes, They have a good list of wines available.

A must visit!

“Nice good and calm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

This is one of those place where to go when u wanna have a good meal in a calm very relaxing atmosphere! Is an Italian restaurant on Washington ave, almost at the end, in a very quite point. The service is always good, waiters often are Italian so they really can suggest u what to order. U can be sure anytime u go that the food is fresh and the menu has a quite large selection. They also have pizza, delicious! Not a fashion place but sometimes is nice to go out and feel at home!

“Good italian pizza and quick service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

We were in a hurry and found this nice looking italian restaurant. They do take away aswell and we ordered two pizza's to go. It only took about 7-10 minutes at the most to wait for them and the pizzas were really good. Fire oven baked, thin italian crust and good toppings and taste! Recommend it and would go there again.

“Great Place to Eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

I had to go to MIA to catch a flight, and I started craving some good Italian food. I decided to eat at this restaurant after reading the great reviews on tripadvisor. I had the lobster ravioli and it was absolutely fantastic. I had the tiramisu for dessert, and it was delicious. The macchiato was the best coffee I'd had in a long time.

I used to live in Milan, Italy, and I'm always hesitant to go to Italian restaurants in the US because the pasta is usually not good. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at this restaurant. My waiter was Italian, and it seems as though an Italian person owns the restaurant.

“Aubergine Parmigiana Pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We had a lovely romantic dinner at La Locanda, we sat outside, had a reasonably priced bottle of red, some salad and pizza. I had an aubergine parmigiana pizza, what an invention! It was great and partner had prosciutto and ricotta, which was also lovely. Big, thin pizza's with lots of topping, not greasy at all. Following the waiter's recommendation we had a tiramisu, which was lovely but nearly finished us off! Nice place and good value for SoBe.
