Excellent food! I wanted to try about 12 things in the menu but my stomach is only so big. I had the osso buco, and it was fantastic, very moist and the sauce was hearty and delicious.
The service is terrible the food is just okay little bit over price...
I won’t go back..
Everything was fabulous. The server was friendly, the food was cooked perfectly and presented well. We had muscles, linguini, fish and chocolate mousse cake. Definitely will return. Great place for dinner for two, small or large groups and celebrating any occasion.
Our food was awesome....again. Great waiter and wonderful seafood with black pasta. Everything was fresh. A jazz band played till 8 pm(thursdays I think). Not our thing but really good
Our third trip to La Locanda and it was again worth it
Found this restaurant on Open Table. Off the beaten path, but don't let the quiet area deter you. Food was excellent! So fresh. And they split it for us, which was so nice.
Absolutely great food. Better than anything in the south Bay area. We come here every time we are in town. Always great
Super fun dinner for six! Bruschetta is amazing, special
Seafood risotto was amazing and the service was 5 star. We will def be back!
Service was good. Appetizer was good. Our pasta main courses are salty. Chicken Parmesan tasted institutional, sauce taste like from a can. Scollop is not completely clean. Taste little sandy.
We really enjoyed our meal at La Locanda. The service was great the food was amazing. My husband says loves the Ravioli and says it is the best red sauce he has ever had. It was perfect for his Birthday.
Nice place! Great food and great service at reasonable prices. Try the Chef's Limoncello!
Food and service was fabulous. We had the lobster risotto, lobster bisque and filet mignon.
We took friends for dinner Fri. Evening. They loved La Locanda as much as we do. Our server, Branden was fantastic, as was our dinners. Thank you La Locanda!
It was great, staff was excellent!
Overall food was very good. Gnocchi was out of this world as was the salmon piccata, and the veal chop. Food was beautifully presented and the menu had a great mixture of will -known Italian dishes with some creative and unusual specials.
Service was slow though perhaps because they had a number of large parties which made it very hard to hear at times. The server needed to be reminded of one item ordered several times and we had to track him down to get our check.
Very reasonably priced for the quality of food.
Will definitely try again.
Fabulous restaurant and can't wait to go back again!
Best Italian food in Scottsdale! Excellent welcoming Management and great servers.
We’re regulars and always look forward to going here.
They have just added some Vegan options which is exciting as my sister is Vegan, and at an Italian restaurant!
Great waiter, terrific food, great location, good value
Lovely neighborhood gem. Good food, great service and nice ambience! We could actually talk without raising our voices. We will go back!
That wait staff were all really nice!
Food and service was excellent. I highly recommend this place
Dined here for my 1 year Anniversary, and could not be any more impressed with the food. Absolutely the best Italian Cuisine we have had here! My dish was the Linguini Arrabiata, and it was to die for! Cannot wait to bring my friends and family here!
We had a great time at La Locanda. Carlos and his team were able to accommodate a large surprise party group that eventually grew to 22. The service was fast and attentive. The food was delicious. And we had a great side room area for our surprise party. They even cut and served the big birthday cake that we brought in from an outside bakery. It was an excellent night. Thanks to everyone at La Locanda for making this event special!
Love this place. Food is delicious. Classic Italian with a little twist
Food was top notch. We took friends - they're folks who know good good. They raved - never been there and said food was just the best. Service is adequate - not perfect but nice. Ambiance was ok - not fancy - "things a bit out of place" but very pleasant.
Looking to kick back, find a "locals" great food place just off the grid...........you'll love it.
This was my first visit, and I'm definitely not going back.
They were super slow on service, especially between entree and desert. Also I asked for an espresso to come "with" my desert. The espresso was chilly by the time desert was served. The server was difficult to locate and inattentive, and therefore it was difficult and time consuming to get these issues resolved. And the quality was lacking compared to the price.
Went for Valentine's day knowing it would be crowded. The food was delicious and the service was friendly, however it was very slow, taking an hour to get the first course and another hour after that to get the main course. My party felt bad for the waiters as they seemed to be waiting on the kitchen for meals to be delivered and we're working double duty as bar tenders. We will likely go back, but not on a holiday.
great food and service. staff was attentive and accommodating.
Excellent Italian Food! Service was very attentive, and the live music was good.
The food was good but service took forever.
One of the best meals I have had in Scottsdale. I had the veal chop and it was fantastic. We had 5 people in our party and everyone really enjoyed their meal. I would highly recommend this place. The only negative is the noise level.
Amazing food and top notch service!
New to the area so was trying something new. Walked in and Immediately was happy with our choice. Live jazz band to set the mood. Had a great round table for good convo. Food was amazing. Lots of different specials. Highly recommend. A little pricey but expected and worth it.
Amazing as always!
Dinner at La Locanda on a Sunday night, party of four. Great experience all around. Caesar Salad, 4 entrees, tiramisu, and panna cotta all excellent. Nice bottle of Chianti, reasonably priced. Service was friendly and very good.
So happy to see La Locanda succeeding in Downtown Scottsdale, serving great classic Italian dishes. We’ll be back very soon.
Great plant based menu. The garlic bread is spot on!
This is a really great, contemporary Italian restaurant. The food and service are excellent and the menu has lots of favorites -- lighter and fresher than some of the "old school" Italian places in town.
Consistently delicious! Wait staff is friendly .
Wonderful music on Thursday nights. Excellent service. Delicious food.
The gnocchi was amazing! Like perfect marshmallows! That was our first time and certainly won’t be our last.
