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.
Lunch: Tuesday - Friday: 11:30am - 2:00pm
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.
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.
I hadn't been to this restaurant in a number of years - and was happy to see it was as good as I had remembered. It was very cozy on a cold night; the food was delicious; and the service perfect.... I'll definitely be back again.....
Locanda is our go-to restaurant for dinner on most Fridays. Great menu with varieties of meals. Comfortable and cozy, we are always well taken care of.
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.
If you love pasta but watch your carbs, try the whole wheat spaghetti. It’s delicious.
Pasta dishes are delish. Avoid the veal scallopini.
Our server Levi knew exactly what drinks to serve us and made them beautifully.
Locanda always hires good servers, but Levi is exceptional. Thanks.
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!
Everything was delicious and freshly made to order!
Great food, consistently good.
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.
Service was slow due to kitchen. Food was ok. Troy was a good waiter.
Great place in our neighborhood. Very consistent good food. Have been going there for several years now and also enjoy sister restaurant Café Mercado- especially in the summer as their outdoor seating area is quite nice. And, when Locanda is closed on Mondays Cafe Mercado is open!
Exceptional food and dining experience. The grilled seafood salad is a meal in and of itself plus it is delicious. I would go back for that salad alone even though the pasta and other dishes were great.
5 people. Mixed food reviews. Branzino good. Spaghetti/clams too much red pepper. Seafood salad good. Risotto bland.
Although we were at back table, we all smelled like smoke from the grill when we left.
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.
This is a reliable excellent restaurant. It is a hidden gem for luncheon meetings.
We lucked out as we caught the restaurant on a quieter day! With 3 of us and 2 with hearing issues, it was perfect. Our waiter was beyond excellent..very attentive, interesting, efficient and effective. It was a birthay and we had a wonderful time plus the food was excellent. This is one gem of a restaurant. A+
Up to its usual standards. Everyone’s meal was first rate. There were eight of us and everyone found something just to there liking.
This is true neighborhood gem. Authentic Italian/Sicilian food, fresh ingredients, proper preparation and presentation. The bar is also excellent and friendly for craft cocktails and food service.
I asked the waiter if I could get the Mussels and Clams in a white wine / garlic sauce in stead of the tomato sauce on the menu. The chief was very accommodating and made some of the best M&C I've ever tasted. Thanks to the kitchen and the wait staff for a very pleasant evening.
One of our favorite places. The food is always terrific and service prompt and friendly. Would strongly recommend
The food was dated. Except for the ravioli special that we had, all the other food including the bread was very lack luster and felt as if it had been contemporary over ten years ago. Our server was in the weeds even though there were empty tables. It's a nice space though. I would recommend an update to the food across the board except maybe the specials if they are truly created as specials.
Great place, but If you really want to have a conversation you need to go later. If you go before 730 you can be quite loud. The service is always lovely and the food has yet to disappoint.
OK seemed like a cute little neighborhood spot I found on OpenTable and looked at the menu and it looked appealing. Upon arrival I noticed they had a full bar my dad loves a bloody Mary he said it was the worst bloody Mary he’s had to date! Our server was nice however not over enthusiastic about his job… We ordered the prosciutto with Burrata to begin, The prosciutto was cut a bit thick and was tough like dried out and the burrata was very watery...
My dad said the meatballs were tough but tasted OK (in the spaghetti and meatballs) the ‘fresh pasta’ was too chewy. I ordered the homemade tagliatelle with eggplant and mozzarella the sauce was good however the homemade noodles tasted so chewy I couldn’t eat them, it was as if they were under cooked and too thick. (more like a thin dumpling but longer.) My step mom had the halibut, again the sauce was tasty but the fish was clearly frozen for sometime. I wish I could give this place a better review it’s a cute neighborhood place
Food average. Pasta cold
Really enjoyed this gem of a restaurant. Highly recommend.
