We really enjoy this place and the pizza is excellent. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants good Italian food. Dont miss it!
By far, this is the best Italian food in Scottsdale. I had Salmon Piccata.... fresh and delicious. My husband had grilled calamari and veal with spaghetti....simply prepared and fabulous. All of our party thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
The staff was very helpful in describing the menu items.
This restaurant is a must-try!
Nice atmosphere and excellent food. Had the scallops risotto and my wife had a gluten free version of the gnocchi (GF penne instead). Our server was maybe having a bad day, certainly keeps the experience from being 5/5.
The wait staff treated customers very unfairly between tables. They never asked me if I want to second glass of wine. When the waiter presented the bills, he threw the bills at our table. however the next table got theWAY above and beyond service.
Absolutely delicious food. Great service and Ambience.
Server was only interested in upselling, brought an app that we didn’t order and didn’t offer a solution when we said we didn’t order that. Food was good, service was awful.
Food and service was good, definitely will go back.
We were frequent diners at this restaurant back in the 90's when it was at Scottsdale and Shea. We knew it closed but we didn't know it had REOPENED. What a pleasant surprise and it did not disappoint. The dining room is open with booths in the back. And there is a great bar. Everything we had was simply delicious and the sauces are amazing. The garlic bread is made to order and is crunchy. The salmon picatta over seasonal veggies is wonderful and the veal chop on the menu was the best cut of meat my husband has had in a very long time. And the finale - tiramisu - was not as cakey as what you normally find. Very decadent and next time we won't share. The homemade limoncello at the end of the evening was the perfect touch. We are so glad to have found this restaurant again. A Scottsdale gem.
The food was amazing but the service made our dining experience exceptional! I can’t wait to return!
First time in the new location. We arrived very early (5 pm) on a Saturday night. By 6 pm, there was a reasonable crowd and a nice atmosphere. Great service and attention. We shared the grilled calamari and then each had pasta. Nice selection of Italian wines at reasonable prices. We will be back.
Great service and experience. Osso Buco and veal asiago were excellent, good wine list and a good variety of dishes.
Wonderful food and very good service. We will be back!
One of our all time favorite restaurants. Service is always excellent but more importantly, the food is awesome!
Fantastic food, fantastic and quick service.
Make sure to order the filet, it just melts in your mouth
4 of us went for dinner. The service was fantastic. Our meals came out quickly , were all piping hot and delicious. We ordered 4 different pasta dishes and all were excellent . If you want great authentic Italian food at reasonable prices, you won’t go wrong coming here. We will come again.
Brunch was very mediocre. The classic Benedict was disappointing - English muffin tasted stale, hollandaise was sour tasting and too runny, and the poached egg was immensely undercooked (the white of the egg was clear still). Nobody was in the restaurant but us. Staff was friendly, but will not return for food.
We used to eat al Lalaconda before relocation and it still has the best osobuco. I highly recommend it for great Italian food!
The waiter offered garlic bread for the table, but did not disclose that there would be a charge for it. The waiter served a split salad to me and my husband, which neither of us ordered, and charged us for the salad. The food was OK, not great; only two of our party of five really enjoyed their food. The bottle of wine we ordered was nice, and at a fair price.
Fantastic people and food as well! A very good experience!
Simply stated, our experience was awful. We’ve been to Italian restaurants around the world but have never before heard that bolonese sauce is unavailable. It’s an Italian restaurant staple!!! Have never before heard of chicken parmagiana being served with mashed potatoes. We will never return to give this place a second look. We saw enough our first time around.
Good food helpful staff great wine list. Cool old town Scottsdale location.
La Locanda continues to serve meticulously prepare Northern Italian cuisine. Scottsdale is fortunate to have such a fine restaurant.
Caesar salad was disappointing, very bland.
Osso Bucco and Parpardelle were both wonderful.
This was our second time there. Friendly staff and excellent drinks. Highly recommend for a date night.
We had an excellent meal here. From the homemade salad dressing to the homemade gnocchi to the veal chop they turned into a butterflied veal parmigiana, everything was fabulous. The service was top notch. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing experience here tonight! Wonderful, flavorful and authentic Italian cuisine. It’s summer in Az so it was quiet but the food was on par with any of the better restaurants in town. Lobster bisque, stuffed pork chop beet salad and the gnocchi were all memorable. I’ll be back!
This is superior Italian dishes. We really like this place. We asked for and got a nice quiet table because we wanted to discuss an upcoming vacation. I wanted them to make a major modification to one of their pasta dishes and they had no problem doing that. All in all, a good place with authentic Italian food.
The bread was old, the risotto tasted old and mushy. The tomato in the caprese was like pink styrofoam.
How did they get 4 stars on open table?
Excellent all around. Great authentic Italian dishes, fun drinks and excellent service. Overall an awesome night out, we will definitely be back and recommend to others.
The food is amazing. I ordered the seared scallops with the porcini risotto. Delicious.
Truly an outstanding restaurant - highly recommend! A hidden gem!
The food was outstanding as was the service. Kudos to the Chef! We had the osso buco, the risotto, pasta with seafood, even desert -- and everything was so good, no leftovers. Everyone left happy. The wine list was a bit overpriced, other than that I would highly recommend this place.
Food and Service excellent and consistently !
Really enjoyed our Mother’s Day brunch today. Service & food was very good. Would like to return & try dinner. We are visiting from South Carolina.
Was there for Mother’s Day brunch. Service was very slow. It took about 40 mins to get my omelette and when it arrived it was luke warm and just “ok”. Maybe their regular dinner or lunch service is better but we were very under whelmed.
I had Veal Gorgonzola and my wife had Salmon Piccata as entrees. Both were excellent. We had a Caprese salad as a first course. Although the mozzarella and dressing were excellent, the tomatoes that formed the basis for the salad were awful. The service was very good. The wine list is adequate, but could use a better selection of California and/or other domestic wines for those of us who don't follow Italian wines.
Wonderful home made pasta and sauces!! Lobster risotto was dreamlike..... pappardelle OMG ... melted in my mouth!! I love this little place. Next time in from Chicago, will be back!!
We had a group of 5 friends for dinner and were seated at round table. The staff were very attentive and the waiter made some great recommendations. Food was great with large portions. This place is a hidden gem in Old Scottsdale.
Great food and such a cool setting.
Our waiter was wonderful, great sense of humor, and the food was absolutely delicious!
