Been here many times, however
Been here many times, however the service this time was lacking. Our waiter at times was missing in action and when he showed up, he seemed more interest in my date versus our table.

La Locanda always does a great
La Locanda always does a great job. This wine dinner was no exception. These events give the chefs more freedom to do other things than are ususlly on the menu. For those that love wine, there always something to learn fron the guest wine representatives. The crowd tha attends always has a great time. Always looking forward to the next one.

My husband and I went for
My husband and I went for an anniversary dinner and enjoyed it. The food was great and our server Mossimo was fun, friendly, and knowledgable. The decor is fine -- not swanky, and not stuffy, but just enough to give you a little something to look at. There was certainly an authenticity about the restaurant that was charming. We did appetizers to desserts and enjoyed all of it. The appetizer special--the seafood cake--was great, ironically not too fishy, but tasty. My husband's dinner (sausage, marscapone, pear) ravioli was good and filling, as was my veal florentine. It's a great place to go when you want good, authentic food without for a decent price. We will definitely go there again.

Delicious Authentic Italian Food!
Delicious food and great wait staff! Our first time here and we were very happy with our experience. A little pricey, but worth it for the authentic Italian food! Also had gluten free pasta!

An Always enjoyable visit
Saturday night is energetic, as the restaurant was very full. More laid back on other nights. Very good pasta dishes at reasonable prices. The high end dishes of fish and veal are always very fine also. Hands on owner/management there every night.

Great spot for family gatherings
The food was very good. The staff very attentive to my elderly parents. We really enjoyed our waiter, a native of Milan, and a huge extrovert!It is a very good place for groups of all ages, very welcoming, handicap accessible, and overall a very good experience.

I utilized this restaurant
I utilized this restaurant for a first time meeting with a lady and was absolutely delighted. I arrived early and waited at the bar. Every person who cam in seemed like they were from the neighbor, everyone knew everyone. The two young ladies work the bar were outstanding. Our server, I appologize I can't remember his name, was a professional with and 'A' rating. Se were there Saturday evening Aprio 27 @ 7pm. The food was to die for, EXCELLANT.

Friends from Seattle were
Friends from Seattle were in and the restaurant turned out o be a great choice. The food was good and there was no corkage fee for the wine we brought. (Sundays are BYOB!) They honored our reservation and gave us a nice table. The waitress seemed
overwhelmed but tried to keep up. They was also a private party so that might explain why the place was so packed. Overall, a great choice that was reasonably priced, with good food and a pleasant ambiance. Highly recommend!

The atmosphere is decent,
The atmosphere is decent, nothing special. The service was very pleasant, adept and prompt. The food was quite well proportioned including the tomato/cheese salad, and the mushroom soup was excellent. The pasta special ( with lobster and sun dried tomatoes in a garlic type sauce ) was good, not great. My wifes salmon was well sized and very tasty and the "special" veal chop was perfectly prepared and very juicy and well seasoned.
Overall, given the food and service quality, we were pleased and would return. Will try harder for the back room next time to reduce the disparity between the atmosphere and that of the food and service.

Great authentic Italian food!
Our waiter, Massimo, is from Italy and we could tell, which is refreshing to find as this is billed as an Italian restaurant. He greeted us with a pleasant smile and a warm welcome. He knew the specials by heart and made several good recommendations. I had the tortellini with cream sauce and proscuitto, and my date had the soft shell crabs. We didn't feel rushed and left satisfied and happy. I wish all full service restaurants were as pleasant and friendly as La Locanda.

the food was very good and the location and decor very nice. we have eatten there before and enjoyed it . we travel from Connecticut to go there.

We have been dining at Locanda for years and we have always enjoyed the excellent Italian food. We really like the changing specials.

Father's Day dinner
Father's day dinner with my wife, son and my in-laws. My wife and I have been to La Locanda a few times before and have always found the food delicious and the service excellent. We brought my son (4 years old) and my in-laws for the first time.
The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent as well. A wonderful Father's Day dinner.

Excellent service; great food
My daughter had never eaten at LaLoconda and I wanted somewhere special for her birthday. I arrived first and was immediately seated. Our server, Massimo was attentive and charming. He made it was a lovely dining experience.
We chose Caesar salads; chicken parmisano and soft shells crabs with pasta. The salads were crisp and full of flavor. Though the menu listed a veal parmisano, it did not list the chicken. Massimo assured us, he would take care of our request. My soft cells crabs were just a little salty but still delicious.
Though I had not booked the reservation as a birthday celebration, Massimo had asked what brought us to the restaurant. My daughter's dessert arrived with a candle and serenade.

What a perfect night out!
I always enjoy coming to La Locanda for happy hour or a great . I love when soft shell crabs are on the menu I have to order them. I like the way the chef makes them it's not with a thick breading. The way they made them was unbelievable. I recommend if you like soft shell crabs it's a winner. We started out with crab cakes and also blue point oysters which were just fantastic! Our waitress was just a pleasure and the staff are so friendly. We will be back again, just amazing

This dinner was a celebration of my father's 90th birthday. The menu had variety and interest, the food was delicious and the service was thoughtful and attentive. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My father was treated like a king and to top it off, the bill was less than anticipated. We will return.

If you like softshell crabs, this is the place to go. They have them all summer and are the best softshells I have ever had. Not to miss!
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal at La Locanda. The food, service and atmosphere are all very good, and we go periodically for special occasions or with guests. We have never had a bad experience and would recommend it highly.

Good food and Service
Really a surprise at this Italian restaurant. Never went before and food was good and service excellent.

Great Food, cold room
We had special apps, which were different and yummy- and the soft shell crabs were perfect. The accompanying saffron infused linguini was dry and one taste was enough but everyone elses' dishes were really good.
Only problem was that the room was very cold and when it was mentioned to the waitress, she said she was the wrong one to talk to about that because she's working so is not cold. She could have at least said she'd try to turn down the air---others were draped in sweaters on a summer night. Seems they keep the room at a temperature for the staffs' comfort and not the diners.
All in all, though, we love this spot and dine for lunch or dinner fairly often.

Great meal Sunday night as a BYOB! Excellent food, service and ambiance. Would like to have Italian music in bar vs. country, but, minor concern.
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Did it again!
Brought three new folks with me to a business lunch and talked them into trying the BEST OF THE MAIN LINE "Screpples" Soup. They raved about the award winning soup and the rest of the lunch too. La Locanda is the real deal. A true white linen restaurant with great service and great food.
8/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
We have been to this establishment many times and it never fails us. Their staff has always been very accommodating. Great food, service, friendly environment and we will be back without doubt in the future.

Great date night restaurant
My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at La Locanda very much. We ordered Fried Calamari as a starter and it was delicious. The breading is very light and well seasoned. For dinner, I had the Veal Saltimboca and my wife had Gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce. Both meals were delicious. We will be back again.

Good lunch place for biz mtg
Not crowded, interesting specials, tasty food and good service. As the restaurant was not crowded for lunch, we could converse quietly without being disturbed. Very good.

My wife and I took my mother to dinner at La Locanda and it was a wonderful dining experience. Food & service were excellent

We really enjoyed our meals and the new additions to the menu.

What a nice surprise!
While visiting my daughter and her boyfriend, my husband and I decided to take them to dinner at La Laconda. We all had a different appetizer, entree and dessert and were all extremely thrilled with our meals. The 'water boy' was a constant fixture at our table, much to my husband's delight and the waitress (only female!) was knowledgeable, funny and extremely attentive. I can't say enough about how nice this place is and will certainly go out of my way to visit again!

This Place has it Figured Out
Why do I say this place has "it" figured out... When we walked on a Sunday afternoon, we were greeted by a a courteous gentlemen who escorted us to our table making special accommodations for our 1 year old son. Our waiter, obviously a seasoned pro (not a college kid trying to earn beer money) was great; he offered us the option of ordering from the dinner menu in addition to their brunch menu. We ate and drank well, but more importantly we were taken care of as if we were guests in the home of the greatest hosts. We attend church services down the road quite often and when our schedule permits, we dine their afterwards. I cant wait to take my family their for dinner.

A Nice Night Out
Was going to a club to see a band in Newtown Sq. on a Saturday night and wanted to have dinner with a fiend first, I found this Resturant on line and it had resceived postive reviews from former patrons. They did not lie, from the time we walked in the expirence was good, greated right away even though it was very busy, and got a seat at the bar while we waited a few minutes for our reserved seating. the place was very busy, I might say even packed but our waiter, Luchiano, was very attentative to our needs. The food was very good and the price was very good for the quality of the food. this was a great find and I will be back.

Our lunch was fabulous. There were 6 of us and we loved everything. Our server was great!
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food, Service & Decor was Very Good. Prices for liquor (per glass) as we had just a couple of drinks seemed over priced. Dining room we sat seemed to have too many tables. Don't like to dine and feel I can almost reach over and pat the next diner on the back. Noise level was loud which detracted from romantic and intimate dining. Too many people constantly walking by and brushing by our table (distracting). Passersby were both patrons and staff. This kind of foot traffic is akin to chain restaurant dining which is probably not what you are going after. Would definitely go back as the food was fanatastic.

LaLocanda is a great restaurant, conveniently located and always up to par. Never had a bad meal and the people employed there are especially nice from the time you enter until you leave.
