This was a delightful surprise. We selected it for its location; close to a theater. Both the food and service were excellent. Two of us had lasagne; their report was excellent. One had daily special, also excellent. And, I had veal piccata and it too was excellent and I am very picky when it comes to veal piccata. And, we liked the ambience, casual and neighborhood.

The wood burning aroma took us immediately back to Italy! Food is dependably good. Waitstaff very friendly and attentive.

Food and service were great. Only downside is you absorb all the kitchen smells from the wood burning oven so clothes and hair smell unpleasant when you get home.

If you have any food allergies, I do not recommend this restaurant. Despite putting a note in my reservation about my allergies and discussing them last night with the waitress, I am having a severe gluten and dairy reaction this morning. The waitress did not seem to understand the seriousness of my allergies.

We were seated at 7:00 on Valentine's Day. Our first 3 wine choices were not available, and several choices on the menu were also unavailable. I ordered a 2nd glass of wine, which did not arrive until we had finished our entrees, so I canceled the order. When our bill arrived, we were charged for the canceled glass of wine. While our waiter was pleasant, the evening was a disappointment.

We always enjoy dining here. First time for Valentine's day. I had the Branzino, which I've ordered many times and loved, but this time was the exception. Either the fish was overdone or our server didn't have enough experience with de-boning a fish tableside. I was presented with a fish that looked like it had already been eaten. The filleted branzino still had many bones in it. I was disappointed. My husband's steak came out perfectly. He was very satisfied with his meal.

We absolutely LOVE Locanda Del Borgo! The food was delicious last night - so happy it was a full/open menu (no preset V-Day menu). Our waiter (sure wish I got his name) was FANTASTIC - lovely young man, who was happy to be there "serving" us.

We were a party of 7 , when we were seated the table was only set for 6 people.We asked the hostess for another chair and it took her close to 6 minutes of my husband standing at the table to get a chair .Not acceptable but we moved forward.The waitress was overwhelmed and most appetizers where either wrong or cold.She never came back to check ! Our meals either came out wrong or cold !
Asked for bread never got it , asked for more water took forever , asked busboy to get waiters to reorders on drinks never got them !!
Bottom line never going back !!!

I often forget about this great restaurant 2 miles from the house. Easy parking, pleasant staff. Service was excellent and all four of us enjoyed our dinners. Everyone should try this Italian restaurant and keep it on your list of places to go when you can’t think where you want to go. Hope that makes sense.

"Locando del Borgo" is a favorite spot in our neighborhood for yummy Italian food with a Sicilian flair. The prices are reasonable and the service is terrific. We had a special seating request during our last visit which was accommodated perfectly. one request - please start stocking Etna Rosso wine again - that is the perfect wine for your menu.

In the future, do not post times and confirm them when you are closed. Pretty embarrassing to plan a work dinner with a colleague and they drove across town to meet for a work dinner and the restaurant I booked was closed.

The ricotta gnocchi was not very good. It should be soft pillows of flour and cheese, but whoever made these used too much ricotta and they came out like cold lumps of cheese. Somebody really goofed!

Really nice, local Italian restaurant with an authentic feel. Food and service were good but the atmosphere is a little antiseptic and chilly...mostly just the experience of high ceiling, tile floors and not much to 'warm up' the space. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back but it will be for the food as opposed to the experience.

I have been to Locanda del Borgo a handful of times and have never been disappointed. Whether it's a busy Saturday night or a more low key weeknight, the service is always exceptional, the food delicious, the menu both creative and comforting. I have yet to leave the restaurant wishing I'd gone elsewhere. I have entertained family and clients in the restaurant, it is a perfect venue for both.

We have gone to Locanda del Borgo for many years now. However, the last few months, beginning last Summer, we've had a real Problem with the inordinate amount of cooking smoke in the restaurant. This is a most unpleasant situation, leaving one's clothes smelling afterwards.
Please work on improving your ventilation system so this problem disappears. Thank you.

The food was marginal at best. The prosciutto appetizer was ok, but definitely not the best prosciutto I’ve had. The homemade breadsticks were fantastic. The Bolognese was great as well. Also ordered the skirt steak and requested medium, but it came well done and flavorless. Probably won’t be back.
