Even after waiting for one hour for our appetizer, it was undercooked, as was one of our entrees. Entree was sent back to the kitchen because it was inedible. No manager ever approached us to discuss or apologize.
Excellent food and drinks. Great service. Nice atmosphere.
Everything was wonderful from the service to drinks and food. This was our first time but definitely not the last. I loved the beet salad and and my pasta was great very fresh tasting.
Will definitely be back...for me this is a great place for drinks and appetizers!! My love and I enjoyed our experience and will visit again
This was the 3rd time I’ve tried this establishment. Each time I go I’m hoping it will be better than the last and I’m just always left disappointed. Our table order the charcuterie board to start. It came out super fast. They claim someone ordered it, the chef made it and the table cancelled their order. You could tell the board had been sitting. I ordered the squid ink pasta. The pasta was not cooked. I’m familiar with an al dente pasta and this pasta had not even reached that level of preparation.
There was also live music while we were dining. The performer was an older gentleman singing classic standards. He didn’t have live music, he was singing with a recorded accompaniment. He was so loud. Like too loud, we had to talk loudly at our table to hear one another and we were seated at the other end of the restaurant. I felt like I was 21 in a college bar, not a fine dining establishment. We mentioned to our waitress how loud he was and she agreed. We requested if she could ask him to turn it down. She reported back that multiple tables had requested that of him and he had yet to adjust his volume.
After trying 3 times and never really being impressed, I can’t say that I will be back.
Excellent food and service
We dined at LaBanca for a Valentine’s Date Night and were blown away by the quality of the service and food! The atnosphere was perfect and our waitress was patient and accommodating. We highly recommend!
Food and service was fantastic.
Everything was delicious and service was great. The noise level was appropriate and not overwhelming for a romantic date night vibe.
The food and service were excellent. The drinks were also excellent.
I realize it is not necessarily a kid friendly restaurant but sometimes you have to bring your children. It would be nice to have a more kid friendly menu, maybe some gelato? Loved the music and loved the ambience.
We were there celebrating Valentine’s weekend as a family of 4. The food was amazing.....presentation and taste were on point. But the service was horrible. Waitress was no where to be seen and it took almost 50 mins from when we ordered to get our dinners. We were also seated near the main entrance and had a very chilly draft every time someone came in and out. A very cool place with a lot of historical architecture but not sure the staff can handle a crowd on busy nights. Not an enjoyable experience.
Food was excellent but waitress billed us for 6 drinks instead of 4 when I said something she removed one not both drinks. I paid for one drink extra not to fight or be embarrassed
Service was great, food good. Saturday evening good dining
Warm, efficient and friendly service. Outstanding Italian cuisine menu and dishes perfectly prepared. Our second visit and both times our experience has been excellent !
Tyler Nadel was our waiter and he was fabulous as was the delicious food!

A beautiful restaurant in a corner bank building with great food and for us the biggest plus, live music. Particular standouts for us are the appetizer, spice crusted yellowfin tuna, the scallop entree and the cauliflower au gratin side. However, best of all is singer Steve Ritrovato.
The food was wonderful, we had the filet and the duck. Thought it was a bit pricey, though. Will be back again to try other dinners and pizza.
I thought the cocktails were a little over priced, but other than that it was fantastic.
La Banca was amazing! They food was fantastic and the staff was so kind and they even surprised us with a birthday tiramisu and champagne for my husbands birthday. We can’t wait to go back
The food was delicious as always. The service was a little slow to refill drinks but other than that, I have no complaints. Always a good experience.
Overall the food we ordered was delicious. We particularly liked their vegetables, especially the cauliflower gratin. The place is lovely and the service great but what was most important to us is the live music’
First time dining here. Thorsten provided attentive and pleasant service. The duck and pasta Bolognese were perfectly executed, and the cheese board was a wonderful selection. Excellent drinks and atmosphere. Covid protocols in place. Live music added an extra something to our date night. We will be back to check out other menu selections and have already told friends! Worth thr 30 minute drive from Dover.
Great addition to Middletown!!
Shannon was very attentive and our meals were delicious
Very good food and great ambiance. Building was a bank and now the restaurant. Next time we would request upstairs.
We Dined with another Couple on Saturday night. The atmosphere was beautiful and the Service was Excellent. When our Entree's arrived everyone enjoyed theirs except one was cold in the middle. They were very gracious in preparing a new one, however when the Entrée arrived it was half the size of the original. Also, The Wine pours are not generous considering the Wine is $9.00 per glass. Most Restaurants pour Wine to up to the bottom of their Logo. The pour I received appeared to be 3 oz. at the most !! If they improved the amount of Wine per Glass, I would give them a 5 Star Rating !!
Would definitely go back again as the Entrees were very good and hope they are more generous with the amount of Wine served !!
Fabulous!!!!! It great having an upscale restaurant in town .
The live music was really nice! Added a nice unexpected touch to the dining experience!
Great food suggestions from the waiter!!!
Great! Never a disappointment.
We love La Banca and Shannon. We will be back!
This was our first time at La Banca. It will NOT be our last. The food was delicious! The service was great! The atmosphere was perfect!! Adding this as one of our favorite finds in DE!
Good food. Good service. Expensive. I would definitely visit again.
So glad we finally tried. The meal was excellent! Our waiter was fantastic, attentive and helpful but relaxed and didnt crowd us either. Will definitely be heading back.
We kept driving by this restaurant and saying we needed to check it out. We finally decided to do so and were very pleased. We felt comfortable in regards to current Covid restrictions. The food was absolutely amazing. The drinks were great as well. We had such friendly and great service. Loved the ambience of the place. Great place for a first date or just a date night. We will definitely go there again.
Great atmosphere, good food and drink menu! Highly recommend.
