First visit to La Locanda and it wont be the last. The staff were friendly and helpful. A good selection of food on the menu with something to suit every body there is also a good selection of Italian wines beers and lagers. A pleasant atmosphere to have a meal enjoyed the evening.

Very rarely write bad review but I had a terrible experience here. Went because of good reviews, arrived and was met coldy by dark haired lady. Gave me a Coke full of ice and hardly any coke. Knew that this was going to be the state of things, poor service and ripped off, especially when I looked at the lack... More

We have been here maybe 6 times now and the food is just fantastic. Full of flavour, excellent choice, local suppliers and cooked by the chef owner to perfection. The Tuscan seafood stews and pastas are magnificent. What ever you have it will be good, including the vegetarian options. The wine is also excellent and not too pricey. If you... More

We visited today at lunchtime with our 3 year old daughter. The weather outside was horrible and rainy, so we wanted to treat ourselves! Stepping into the cosy, rustic restaurant we felt immediately welcome. The staff took great care of us and were wonderfully friendly and attentive. Our daughter Ava was spoken to like a grown up which she really... More

Small, intimate, bags of atmosphere, great reputation for Laconda this should have been a cakewalk for a small group of 4 including my son and his girlfriend, my partner and myself. Perhaps though on arrival being immediately ignored at... More

My husband and I ate at this lovely intimate Italian restaurant last Tuesday 7th March and we can't fault one thing about it. The atmosphere was friendly, the service was attentive, the food was delicious and beautifully presented and the little extra touches - battered meat filled olive; apple sorbet in-between each course (which we hadn't ordered) & the chef...
