    The lunch and location was excellent. The gentleman serving us was aloof and gave us all the impression he didn’t want to be there. Disappointing as we have always had good service on prior occasions.

    We had a table outside which was what we requested, the music was a bit too loud and made hearing each other talk was a bit hard. Apart from that the food was really delicious and our young waitress was amazing, such a great personality.

    If they claim to make homemade pasta and offered only one variety, which I didn't mind due to perceived supply issues, and charged $36 a plate, that just reflects laziness or incompetence from the cooks. Stick to their popular pizze or avoid the place.

    It was a meal my daughter and I truly enjoyed and in particular the recommendations made by the waitress for entree which was Devine. The ambiance, atmosphere and food created such a wonderful experience. I look forward to another opportunity to try the other dishes on offer. Ottimo

    A lovely venue for a relaxing lunch with great company. The food was vibrant and fresh, tasted delicious and washed down with a glass or two of the Prosecco. The service was welcoming and friendly, and the food was delivered quickly and professionally. Overall, it was an experience of a very high quality

    Food was good and everything else was fine, except we hate the loud intrusive music. We asked for it to be turned down twice but it seems to be compulsory. For that reason alone we will look elsewhere before returning.

    Very limited choice of pasta & pizza dishes, also slightly expensive overall - 3 drinks 2 entrees & 1 pizza came to $99, so not great value for money.

    I was reminded that I do not dine enough at Locale. We arrived early with an interstate guest and despite a busy restaurant, we were accommodated. Food was first-class; service was friendly and efficient. I won't leave it so long until I visit Locale again.

    A very good local italian pizza and pasta restaurant in Deakin. Wood fired pizzas are excellent and the table service is very good. Outside tables are nice and they have heaters. Wine is over priced for the qaulity, and no BYO, but the good qaulity food makes up for it.

    Service was very average - staff on their phones, no clearing plates or attendance at the table post main meal so when we got up and walked over to the staff (who were busy taking selfies on their phone) and asked to order dessert and drinks the answer was no as they had shut everything up.

    First time at locale pizzeria with my family and friends, including children aged 15-4yrs. Absolutely something for everyone and the first time in years that my children said they were spoilt for choice re: desserts! Pizzas were good - I’ll be going back for the gnocchi which was an absolute standout. Good drinks and lovely service. Great vibe too.
