Food was very good. However, there was some kind of service issue as another waiting person came after some time to take our order.
Made us feel very comfortable with social distancing and the service was outstanding....the food was remarkable..... it will become our favorite restaurant in the area.
Very good restaurant and dining experience. Very good beer, wine, and spirits list. Our server was great, we sat upstairs and really enjoyed our evening. I will go back!!
Food was exellent, cocktails awesome, service good, social distancing in place with good disinfection.
It was my husbands birthday celebration, it was a wonderful experience. We had a marvelous time. Would highly recommend your restaurant.
Server Thor was great! His recommendations were right on point! Will be back!
Great experience! Outdoor dining could be loud at times due to traffic, but it is a great alternative during these times. Thor was Fabulous!
Several of the waitstaff came to service our table which made it confusing to know which person was actually our waiter. We asked for bread refill and it never arrived. The waiters took to long checking in to see if we needed anything which we did but didn't receive. We tipped to be polite and may try it again, it could have just been an off night. We like to support our local business however we expect good service as well.
The food was delicious, but very small portions for the price. Waiter was terrible (Thor); the bussers and other staff were hustling, but he was a mess. Need some greenery on the deck, but loved the chairs and ambiance.
Service was a little slow but other than that the food was amazing. Pasta tastes homemade, pizza is delicious, fish is fresh. Dishes (other than the classics) are original and very tasty. So happy to have an option like this in Middletown!
Have had better Ceasar salads. Ordered filet medium but it actually came out and was medium rare. The sauce it was in was delicious though. Was expecting it to be a little more high end.
The food and atmosphere never disappoint. A great place for a meal with family and or a dinner date.
We had a reservation at 7:45. We was seated immediately. No came to to our table until 8:05. So we put our order in with our drinks. Drinks came out fast. But didn't get our food until 8:50!!!! The shrimp was way over cooked and a little burnt. Food was not worth the wait.
Love the atmosphere, the staff and great owners, oh the food’s delicious
Great food, drinks and the staff was very friendly. However, the experience felt very rushed. The food came out back to back. Would have been a bit more enjoyable if there was a bit of space between primi and main course.
I like everything about it. The food was amazing thanks to chef Brett for meat and cheese board and then chefs that made my other food and then Sous Chef Shane for making my pizza. This place is definitely recommended to people that want some quality food but have an expensive taste.
Brought my wife back here because I really like the setting and the location. We have tried it several times before the Pandemic started. My wife found out that they now offered gluten-free pasta, so we went back with great expectations. Ordered are drinks and our server (Shannon) was fantastic. Placed our order only to find out 10 minutes later that they were out of gluten free pasta and didn't offer many other options for my wife. My pizza was outstanding and the draft beer selection was limited, but had a couple good ones. Hopefully we will try it again, maybe the bar this time. It really looks like a cool place to hangout.
The food, service, and presentation were great. I thought the portions for the cheese board and variety were less than desirable. Dessert options were limited and both my companions had dessert but I would’ve liked to see fresh fruit options, ice cream, dessert with nuts, and maybe a creame brulee’
We were on Patio to listen to Steve Silicato from 6 to 9pm.
After arriving we were told we needed to leave at 7pm. I didn't realize that we were time limited, i looked back and saw 90 minutes but didn't understand.
We are big fans of Steves and were anxious to hear him again. We ONLY HAD 30 MINUTES OF MUSIC and at 6!53pm we were reminded to leave at 7pm. Flies all over our food, fly landed in wine and then flew out. Our waitress was rude, took wine away, she DID NOT BELIEVE US, never refilled my ice tea. Only REFILLS WERE WITH WATER GLASSES.
FOOD PRICES HIGH, SERVINGS SIZES VERY SMALL. WEDDING SOUP WAS HARDLY 1 1/2 CUPS, ABOUT 1 1/2 INCHES OF WINE PER GLASS AT 8 DOLLARS!!! OTHER DINERS WERE COVERING THEIR FOOD AND DRINKS FROM FLIES!!
We had such a wonderful time at La Banca last Friday night. Their new deck is lovely, they had fans set up to give a nice, but not overbearing, cross breeze. The tables were plenty far apart. The food was outstanding. We had a pork belly appetizer, my husband had the ribeye which was delicious and perfectly cooked to medium, I had the shrimp ravioli. Perfectly portioned. The pasta was tender and the filling was perfect.
We had a nice time. Our waiter, Thor, was attentive and genuine. Thanks for a great night! We will be back for sure!
We went for a birthday celebration. Our server was very good. Friendly, knowledgeable, and gave us just the right amount of attention. The food was excellent. My birthday dessert was on the house and I chose the gelato which was perfection! Based on this experience we would definitely recommend La Banca and plan to go back ourselves!
Always a fantastic experience..so glad to have this place in Middletown! Top notch!
Excellent dining experience! Staff was friendly and efficient. All bread and pasta is made in house and is melt in your mouth fantastic!
Absolutely wonderful! Brittany and Kate are Amazing! Food from the bread to your main meal is completely delicious!! I know it’s hot out but the Wedding Soup is killer. Brick oven pizzas to die for!! Wonderful all around experience!!
OUTSTANDING FOOD AND AMBIENCE WAS UNIQUE AND PLEASANT! LOVED IT!
My wife and I dined at La Banca for her birthday. Food was delicious. I had a nice simple Tagliatelle in a beef and pork ragu. It was fantastic. Service was efficient and pleasant. Definitely will be dining again.
Great Italian food with a awesome atmosphere. Service is always quick
Absolutely Outstanding...can’t wait to return
Definitely the best restaurant in Middletown, DE! I thoroughly enjoyed my tuna appetizer and the entree of squid ink cavatelli with seafood sauce was outstanding!
Amazing dinner and experience. The service, ambiance and food were just wonderful! So glad to have this in Middletown! We will be back soon
Very good food and service. Will go again
It was HOT outside but that was our fault the food and service were AMAZING
Best restaurant in Middletown! Food, drinks and service were amazing! Tables are socially distanced and the restaurant was exceptionally clean! We love La Banca!
Food was very good, service was fine....server forgot a side but didn’t charge us. I heard the pasta was expensive but it was priced fairly. My dish was monkfish smoked, excellent and my wife had a very nice bolognese.
Food was very tasty. It's nice to have a "foodie" your restaurant here in Middletown, and it's slightly cheaper than eating similar fare in a city. Service was also excellent. The restaurant was clean and well laid out; it's a very nice look inside this historic building. The one complaint I'd have about the ambiance is that it's maybe too well lit, if that can be considered a complaint? Harder to get that romantic atmosphere in the summer with all the light streaming in from the windows. Anyway, just a little niggle. Overall great experience!
It was too hot to eat outside, so we were able to be seated inside instead.
Very good food, great service, and well maintained.
Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back!
What an awesome experience! Wonderful ambiance, historical premises, great staff, and OUTSTANDING food! This was a perfect experience. We can’t wait to go back again. Thank you!
The restaurant and service were very good. However, the food lacked flavor. Just not work the high cost in my opinion.
