Hailed by Zagat for its excellent service & delectable home-made cuisine, La Locanda reinvents itself relocating to a renovated space, boasting a sleek, stylish interior with ceiling-high stone walls, dark wood, white linen table-tops, fresh flowers, & candlelight, creating the ultimate cool, intimate ambiance to indulge in sumptuous Italian cuisine while enjoying a great selection of wines and a full service bar. LCD Flat screens will entice loyal "Heat" fans for prime-time game watching. "The small gem is where local folks go for terrific Italian food with a low-key friendly vibe. Don't miss the Penne dell'Appennino, an aphrodisiac mix of wild mushrooms with a touch of truffle oil," says Globe Magazine. Charming locals for years with hallmark dishes like the Fiochetti (tiny purse pastas filled with cheese & hints of crunchy pear in a cream sauce with fresh arugula) this "Poor Man's Ciprianis" has added the tastiest gourmet wood-oven Pizza. Then, finally Dessert Bliss: Tiramisu

Full-service bar and outdoor seating for "scenesters" to people watch. A pre-party spot for clubgoers or those seeking night-time entertainment, who enjoy hearing a little Reggae or sultry beats of Theivery Corporation while sipping a cocktail or a glass of wine. Some even come to relax, read a book and sit on the side-walk patio to enjoy the company of the friendly staff and owners, Francesco and Massimo.

The menu was heavy on the pasta dishes, and light on the meat entrees. But the pasta was excellent, and the service was great. My water glass was filled every time it got to half full.
Nice view of the art deco building across the street.

We chose this restaurant as it offered vegan options - we are a mixed crowd of meat eaters and vegans. As it turned out the vegan options was the vegetarian pasta courses made with glutenfree pasta. Fair enough - but not good enough to emphazise the wish for vegan food and to be offered mushroom truffle gluten free pasta only to receive a dish swimming in butter. The dish was replaced when we complained, but the vegan had to eat alone as it took 30 minutes to make a new one with olive oil.

This is a lovely old world restaurant one block off Ocean Drive in trendy South Beach. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The atmosphere is very cozy but not crowded. Well worth a visit.

We were a group of 6 & we were we’ll accommodated:. Service was very good. Our waitress Vanessa was friendly & helpful with our choices. Food was very good from the focaccia in the beginning to the seafood risotto, porcini risotto, tagliatelle with porcini. For dessert we had italian cheesecake which was excellent. Will definitely go back.

They greet you like you're an old friend coming for dinner. The food is delicious and the pizza is fantastic! Neighborhood gem! One of my favorites on the beach.
