Diner Reviews
  • "My partner and I celebrated our two year anniversary at Locale and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious (in fact, I think it was the best gnocchi I've ever eaten), and the service was wonderful. They were very attentive and made sure we had a lovely anniversary. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "We were looking for a restaurant in the Long Is City/Astoria area after a long day in Manhattan. Came across Locale on Open Table and thought we would give it a try. What a great neighborhood gem! Staff was welcoming and attentive. Food was delicious and ambience was great. I can't think of a better place to have spent the evening!"

  • "Booked a reservation here not expecting much but was very glad I did. Great ambiance with dim candle-lighting. Drinks were on point, I went the bourbon route and had the gunslinger, respect your elders and the bartenders special concoction. The food did not disappoint, most notably the Balsamic Glazed Lamb Ribs (unreal, fall off the bone goodness) and Atlantic Salmon (the crispy top layer adds great texture to the dish, not to mention the lobster gnocchi which was perfectly cooked). My girlfriend had the Tagliatelle Aragosta which had a decent amount of lobster in it and the pasta was again cooked to perfection. I have my eyes on the Goat Cheese Ravioli and Orechiette next time.."

  • "We were celebrating our recent engagement,and started at a party of 2. Adjusted to 4, then 6, 8 and FINALLY 10. Every single time we called the staff was completely accommodating! Could not have asked for a better experience. The entire family enjoyed themselves. The staff was cordial, patient with a large group and so sweet. I thank you again, Locale. We will be back!"

  • "I went here for brunch. The outside tables are nice, the food is good, and the service is good, but the portions were small. Both me and my girlfriend thought the omelettes were very small compared to any other omelettes we've ever had."

  • "What a great find! The gnocchi was some of the best I've had, and all the food was fresh and had an interesting (but always authentic) modern twist. Beers were interesting, wine list good. I'd definitely go back."

  • "Locale is the best kept local in Astoria. Great care is taken with food preparation and the staff was accommodating. The crostini were as good as any I've had in Umbria and the fish dishes were outstanding. Very reasonable corkage fee makes it an outstanding value. We'll be back often."

  • "The food was excellent: the shaved Brussels sprouts appetizer is both brilliant and delicious. The Linguine Nero was just the right amount of spicy. Locale is the kind of restaurant you want to come back to so you can try every single menu item. The space is great with huge windows looking out onto the street. Most of all, we had a great experience with the staff. Even on a busy Saturday night, they were able to accommodate our somewhat-rushed timeline to catch a movie. Couldn't ask for a better night of food and can't to return."

  • "We were not able to make a reservation for 4 with several tables being available once we arrived. When we were seated it was very drafty at our table due to absence of outer door. So every time clients would come in or out - it would be cold to the extend that we had to have our coats on shoulders. Given it was a very warm February day, we were lucky. We asked to be moved - staff did not put any effort to accommodate us. Food was good, but not good enough to get over the discomfort of the chill."

The staff was very attentive, salad, pasta, and veal scallopini great, and to top it off cocktails were awesome. If this place was nearby me I'd be a regular."
