Creative and Delicious
This was not your typical Italian restaurant! The dishes were creative and delicious. Each in our party was so pleased with our meals. Additionally, we were treated like VIPs.
I live 70 miles from La Locanda and we can't wait to come back.

A fantastic experience! The food was amazing and the service was just as good. By far one of the best restaurants in Miami. A great find! We will definitely be back, when we come back to visit.

traditional italian rest
It is a little Italian restaurant with no pretention to be what they are not. Good food, good service. Very nice price/quality relation.

Gem of South Beach!
Visited this establishment on 9-28-13. Sat outside although the inside was very quaint as well. The food was fantastic, very true to the recipes found in Italy while being appealing to those used to Italian-American cuisine as well. They have gluten free Penne available for those who want to enjoy pasta without the grief.
The service was fantastic and the prices were great for the quality of food. My group had everything from fish to clams and their traditional homemade pasta with meat sauce. Even the bread with red sauce and pizza appetizers were fantastic.
Owned and mainly staffed by people from Italy with a good wine list.
Also, being on Washington Avenue gets you away from the craziness of Lincoln and Ocean.

Food was excellent
We went with a group of five ladies. Everyone enjoyed the food, each was flavorful and well prepared. The service was very casual and slow but they did correctly execute the orders.

A family celebration
Found after searching for a restaurant on the Beach that's not $30-$50/plate. The place smells like fresh pizza. We had the antipasto, carpaccio, & meatballs as appetizer. All yummy! So was the white pizza. I had salmon, cooked just right in a white wine, lemon & caper sauce. I asked for mashed potatoes but they were out - it was pretty early on a Saturday evening so that was weird. The roasted potatoes sufficed. My husband had fiocci - really tasty. As dessert, the table had a MUST TRY Nutella pastry & ice cream. Our waitress was definitely unhappy - hopefully just a bad day. She was actually kinda rude but the experience was great regardless.
I would definitely return to this restaurant. Actually, I still want to try their pizzas!
