I truly appreciate the care that Locanda is giving its restaurant to keep it safe for customers and worker bees alike. Thank you for always wearing masks. Not every place does. I have a friend in Iowa who with her husband went out for dinner, first time since all this started. She was dismayed that nobody in the place was wearing any masks, especially the servers. She's sorry now that they didn't simply walk out when they realized that this was happening. So thank YOU, Locanda, for keeping it safe for those of us here in Denver.

Had a wonderful experience here! Everything was delicious from the wine to the starters to the made-in-house pasta. Marissa was a wonderful server and had great recommendations.

AMAZING Italian gem. Lasagna and the pizzas are the absolute best. Didn’t love the fettucinni bc I prefer a creamy sauce if I’m going to treat myself to it, but everything else was above and beyond !!!

Our favorite neighborhood spot, and we don't even live in the neighborhood! Only 6 minutes by car. They are very attentive to the requirements for masks and distancing.

Sitting outside on the high tops was fantastic for social distancing. As always the food and service were top notch and I can tell how well trained the staff has been to ensure the safety of all of their customers. So glad to have Locando back open!

We had a terrific waiter! The menu offered us many choices - we had trouble deciding which to choose. I had salmon and my husband had the chicken marsala. Plenty of social distancing and proper cleanliness. It was a great place to have our first dinner out since the beginning of the Covid-19 restrictions! Highly recommend this restaurant!

This is my go to restaruant for celebrations, romantic dinners, and going out with friends. The food is always great, the service is attentive, and the atmosphere is cozy without being smaltzy. One bonus, if you cannot make up your mind, they do small plates so you can try a couple of items. Good wine list.

Tables much too close. All the construction surfaces reflect sound too much. That, plus the adjacency of table precludes discussion or even, contentment. Three small meatballs in the meatball entree is ridiculous as are the small number of clams and mussels in the clam mussel dish. Wine menu and options for volumes are curious.
Kudos to our waitress.

After being closed for several months after a kitchen fire, I was glad to see them back. I was disappointed to see the ‘new’ menu was just a few of the old things less a few items I liked. Nothing new. 🤨

The restaurant accepted a holiday weekend reservation for a large group and never called to say it was closed. We used to be loyal customers.

Had reservations for the night before thanksgiving at 7:00. Got there and you were closed because of a fire. Now I understand that a fire would cuz you close but the least you could have done was emailed me or phoned me and let me know the whole family showed up and it was very bad experience unless your Bollywood come and see you again

I had had reservations at this restaurant for several weeks. They apparently had a kitchen fire, and notified everyone of the cancellation of reservations, except for me. When I pulled up to the restaurant at 6:30 PM on Saturday, it was closed, and no one was in the parking lot, meaning everyone else was notified except for me. Exceptionally poor service.

Entrees came out before salads were done and wait staff just shoved salad plates over as we were eating. Pasta was over cooked. Halibut had good flavor but was over cooked. Wine and port was great.

I go to Locanda Del Borgo quite often as it is a favorite neighborhood place of mine. Normally the food is quite good but this time I ordered seafood fettucine and found it kind of skimpy on the seafood part. The mussels and clams also did not have much meat on them. This dish could be improved.

Yet another 'hard-surface' restaurant...so noise levels nearly preclude conversation as number of diners increases. No carpeting, draperies, cloth table coverings, etc. to absorb sound, so it bounces and re-bounces off every surface, everywhere. Adding to the noise...several tables of very young children, having fun...but noisy fun, dusting the floor with bread bits, yelping, laughing...all the things we expect and want our children to do...but at McDonald's, or at home, or at pre-K. So we won't be going to Locanda again. No point in paying above-average meal prices to eat in a day-care facility.

I used to love this place, but it was getting disappointing. We went back recently and it was less positive than I even remember. The food is OK but not special. The drink selection is modest and the bar has never been great - they can't even make a gin and tonic. The wines remain good but I preferred the old method of a generous pour vs. the 6 oz and 9 oz pricing.

Our waitperson did not pay much attention to us - we would probably have had another glass of wine but she didn't ask until the meal was finished.
