One of the better choices
One of the better choices in Astoria, Locale is relatively small, though quite pleasant. Though the menu is limited, the selections are well conceived. The noise varies between moderate and a bit too much. Parking is generally available within a short distance. By all means, go and enjoy.

I was there for Easter Sunday
I was there for Easter Sunday with my two daughters, one of which is still a teenager and they both loved it! Service was great and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Can't wait to go back!

Decided to go for dinner to
Decided to go for dinner to celebrate my birthday with a few girlfriends who drove in from Nassau County. It had been a few years since I had been there - plans never worked out to go back. Well, the food was very good and service was excellent! The menu has a little bit of everything. We ordered 4 appetizers along with drinks, our main entrees and dessert. It was well presented and good. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful when asked questions and recommendations. It's away from the regular Astoria hangouts - has a bit of a Manhattan vibe to it. Wasn't as crowded as I thought it might be on a Friday night but that could have been due to spring break. I love this place and would definitely go back again.

I love Locale, and since it's right around the corner I always chide myself that I don't come as often as I can. The food is always smartly done, the service helpful and lovely (although sometimes a little slow to start) and it has the ability to be versatile. Anything from a romantic date, to dinner or brunch with friends.

Freshly made pasta
for a delectable, creative, luscious meal.
The service was warm,welcoming and attentive.
The barkeep was quite amiable and willing to create a drink that was not on the menu.
It was a relaxing, and fulfilling evening had by all.

Gluten free Italian!
I was most excited about their gluten options, with not of their pasta dishes available GF! The flourless chocolate cake with espresso gelato was amazing!

my friends & I had brunch there yesterday and the spinach & goat cheese omelet & ham & cheese omelet were cooked to perfection! And the flourless chocolate cake was off the chain! Kudos!

Lovely Brunch spot
My best friend and I went for brunch while she was in town this weekend. She loved the portabello mushroom benedict and I REALLY loved the cheddar grits I had with poached eggs and an English Muffin. Just lovely! And the owner, Johnny, was very welcoming. Will definitely be back! I am curious about dinner!
