We went for our anniversary dinner and had a great experience. Small restaurant that is quiet. Every dish was good and the service was excellent. Good wine list. Three double lamb chops cooked exactly to order.

Just off Lincoln, this little Amalfi style restaurant with a rustic ambience features a great menu and genial Italian staff that aims to please. The wine selection is impressive.

This restaurant has very authentic Italian food that is really very fresh and delicious. Some of my favorite dishes are the muscles in spicy tomato sauce and the beef carpaccio. Have those 2 items with some fresh bread and a couple glasses of red wine and you are good. Some of the pasta dishes can be on the rich side... More

Pretty space - small and can get quite noisy. Excellent wine selection at various price points. Reservations are taken - but aren't really observed - it's basically first come first served even if you have a reservation. Lot of regulars which is generally a good sign. Tried 3 different pastas and they were each excellent. Scallops were also very good.... More

What a surprise on busy Lincoln. Small location. Not more than a dozen tables We arrived at 5 since we were still on East Coast time. They don't open until 530. They were nice enough to let us in until they were ready and serve us a bottle of wine while we waited. Very nice calamari and shrimp app followed... More

Great little Italian restaurant in Los Angeles for a night out. Be sure you try the Rigatoni Al Sugo Di Manzo. Incredible dish!

Went to dinner with my family at Locanda and after reading all fabulous reviews I was really expecting an amazing culinary experience which I didn't get. The food wasn't bad it just wasn't anything special. I enjoyed the burrata appetizer the best and the veal meatballs. Entrees and pasta were good .. But that's all I can really say. If... More

After a long day on Venice Beach, we were craving authentic Italian food and a nice atmosphere. We couldn't of been happier with this choice. I had the spaghetti, and my wife had the braised short rib rigatoni. With red wine and we finished with tiramisu for dessert. We would highly recommend it and visit again.
