Locanda Del Borgo
We serve genuine traditional Italian recipes with our Chef's personal touch, in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Our Chef bases his creations on his 25 years experience in the restaurant business.
Our philosophy is to serve free range and naturally raised farm products whenever possible, and we try to support local farmers as much as we can.
Our menu is paired with an Italian based wine list with international accents, including wines from USA, Spain, Australia, Argentina and others.
Locanda Del Borgo consistently serves good food in a reasonably quite restaurant, usually with good service. It is not inexpensive; for two people, you will not get out for under $60. There is sometimes an issue with the person at the front who seats customers. She will sometimes try to seat a customer at the least desirable table (near a door or pathway), rather than at a requested location. On our last visit, we requested one of the four tables by the kitchen and were told that they were reserved and therefore unavailable. When we finished our meal an hour later, all four of those tables were still unoccupied.
Locanda del Borgo consistently serves authentic, lovely, delicious Italian food that is reasonably priced and never disappoints. This is a great place for a casual evening and anyone can find something tasty to please their culinary desires. The service is sometimes inconsistent and parking can be a bit challenging, but the food is worth any even remotely average of anything else. This is a repeater every time.
Wonderful place. Have spent many special occasions here. My favorite.
Though I do find the table for 2, too small and close together, I still love the ambiance and wonderful food <3
We've eaten at Locanda many times. This time I definitely noticed a definite slip in the level of service, even though it was somewhat later and the evening rush was over. Once again, the odor of smoky cooking smells was very strong, to the point where it was unpleasant. Surely this situation can be fixed with a larger and stronger kitchen fan.
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.
This restaurant is the restaurant that I love. But it wasn’t as good as usual?
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.
They were closed and we we never told!!
Yum on all levels!!! The pizza, the eggplant Parmesan and the ravioli!!!
Four of us had the special, fresh halibut with capers and lemon sauce, it was wonderful. We all thought it was a little overpriced, but still outstanding
great as always. would be nice to know when it's osso buco night, that was delicious! it even pleased our hard-to-please relatives.
keep up the great work!
Solid neighborhood restaurant that offers good options, good service, good drinks.
Wonderful fresh food. Everything on the menu is delicious. Great server.
Love the food !!!
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 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.
New Years eve
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
Food was OUTSTANDING, prices were a bit high and the delivery of food was sporadic. Wall murals would do wonders for the ambiance.
Amazing food and service
Great location, food and service.
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.
As usual the meal was great. Salad was unusually small. But the rest of the meal was wonderful
Wonderful neighborhood place with delicious food and moderate price. Our waiter Levi was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. It was our 45th anniversary dinner and it couldn't have been better. Thank you for continually great food.
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!
Consistently good food with fair pricing
Above average wine list
Knowledgeable wait staff
Would recommend to others for a fun evening
My husband and I had a 5:30 Friday night reservation. Our server rushed us so much that we were home by 6:30. Really inappropriate rushing. The restaurant was not busy btw.
The food was extremely salty...both the fritto misto appetizer and the orecchiette and sausage main.
Good food, attentive service, in the neighborhood, comfortable and overall pleasant.
My linguine with clams had a meager amount of clams with a corresponding meager amount of pasta.
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.
