I ordered the baked chicken which consisted of the back, literally with the tail left on, and 1/2 breast and wing.

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.

Tasty pasta and Caesar salad but bread was dry and hard; server acknowledged the restaurant is trying out new bread suppliers. Pleasant and helpful server, restaurant was ideal for quiet conversation

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.

Usually one of my favs- consistent good quality food at a fair price and a comfortable welcoming atmosphere. This time, my dinner was horrible. I sent back the first time as it was barely warm and I should’ve sent back a second time as the meatballs were like rubber. I probably won’t order the spaghetti and meatballs again anytime soon and it will be awhile before I revisit this restaurant. Very disappointed and I let ownership and management know.

It was our first time at this restaurant, we went with 2 other couples and my brother. It was awesome, the ambiance, the energy. The food was delicious!!! We loved everything we had, the paperdelle with the bolognese was outstanding and we ordered the risotto to pass around and that was delicious. We will definitely be going back!

I'm a first generation Italian and enjoy good (authentic) Italian food. The food at Locanda del Borgo is phenomenal, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is what you expect to find in a good restaurant. I'm already planning my next visit to Locanda del Borgo, there are many more entree's that I want to try.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. I ordered Branzino and it was cooked to perfection! The sides of roasted brussel sprouts and potatoes were great and the portions were extremely large. Our party of 6 was able to enjoy a great evening without loud music and the need to yell to be heard. I will say that the restaurant was not busy at all and it seemed strange to be in an almost empty restaurant on a Saturday night. We also felt that we were keeping the restaurant from closing as we were the only table left at 9:30 in the evening. I know that this is a neighborhood restaurant but that's super early to start closing.

We've eaten at Locanda del Borgo many times. Though this time and the previous time, we were almost overwhelmed by the smoke in the restaurant. I asked them to open the door to the patio, which helped. However, my clothes smelled of smoke for hours. They need to fix their ventilating system and/or cook in a less smoky fashion. This is unacceptable and uncomfortable for the dining customers. Surely, the staff should understand this.
Otherwise, we had a tasty dinner.

Excellent food and service. The patio was very near a busy street and quite noisy so conversation was sometimes difficult. Will select a table inside next time.
