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

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.

Fabulous fresh, handcrafted pasta! The young woman who waited on us was delightful! It was worth the drive from West Palm Beach. We are looking forward to returning to enjoy another meal.

The food was not very good. The Fruita de mar was way too salty, the pear tortellini was good but the cheese sauce was lumping and cold, and the lobster ravioli was tasteless. Sorry.

We were looking for places to eat in Miami Beach, as our daughter just over there. This place was highly rated by several sources, and did not disappoint in any way. Terrific pastas, authentic pizza, great appetizers, and a very good wine selection. The staff was also a standout, for their warmth, sense of humor, and helpfulness. We even got a few Italian lessons. All in all a great evening. We will definitely be back.

College roommate & her 2 friends in Miami enroute to Cuba - I've enjoyed la Locanda's authentic Italian Menu in the past and it was a hit once again.. I didn't care much for the wine recommended by helpful proprietor but didn't realize that til after it was poured for all. My error! Everything else was perfect- especially the pear-purses and fennel salad.outside ambiance noisy- close to street.-:
