    The arancini appetizer in the truffle sauce is excellent. Highly recommend the lamb and the short ribs. Nice wine by the glass selection.

    We went for early dinner on Valentine’s Day. The restaurant was decorated with excessive red heart balloons. It was cute but a bit too kitschy. Our table was very close to another two-top. I ordered a salad and a prawn appetizer. The server didn’t ask how I wanted them but I was planing on the salad as a first course and the prawns as a main. Instead, both plates were delivered together. It was hard to fit them in the small space. They had removed the small bread plates because we didn’t order bread so I couldn’t easily share the salad with my husband. The salad and prawns were both good and my husband enjoyed his pasta dish. Wines by the glass were reasonably priced.

    What a great experience. We had a table of 9 and felt like we had quick and efficient service. The appetizers were great (meatball, rice balls, Brussel sprouts and calamari)! There was a nice choice of entrees -- some fancy and some more what you'd expect, but even the pizza was tasty and full of options. The lamb was delicious and the lobster ravioli was divine. I can't get over how great the service was though. We had one waiter and several people clearing plates, offering new silverware, topping off water, etc. They were very attentive. The waiter knew his menu and was very good. Bonus kudo to David, who was not working at the time but was there anyways and sang a beautiful rendition of "Happy Birthday" to me! What an experience!!

    Service was ridiculously slow - even though it was crowded, that should have been anticipated. We waited for 20-30 minutes to order each round of food. It took the server over 30 minutes to get me hot water. It was very annoying and disappointing - the service has usually been much better in the past.

    There are some really solid bites to be had here. Our favorites were the pizza (best in the area that I have had....real Napoli crust with nice chewiness), the zeppoline (can't miss with fried donuts topped with nutella), and the fritto misto (though the marinara with the meatballs was a better compliment to the dish than the sauce they provided, at least to me). A very reasonable wine list as well. I will definitely be back for the pizza, and might make it a regular spot for that.

    We really enjoyed our visit to the Locanda. We happened by this restaurant while walking around Pleasanton and noticed how pretty it was, then looked at the menu, and asked some questions and vowed to come back. We came for an early birthday dinner to celebrate my husband with our best friends. Allen our waiter was lovely and provided us very nice service. To begin with we ordered a round of drinks. The signature drinks are beautifully presented. We shared a round of appetizers: the arancini, a margarita pizza, the fried zucchini blossoms and the grilled octopus appetizer. The arancini & fried zucchini blossoms were perfect as there were 4 each so one for each of us and we divided the octopus and pizza among us. I was surprised the pizza was precut and in more than 4 pieces as when we stopped by and talked to one of the chef's, he seemed the head chef, and perhaps the proprietor told us that he and 4 other cooks are straight from Naples, (so I had very high hopes for the pizza!) which is atypical of classic Neopolitan style pizza. I have to say I was more impressed with almost every other thing we ate other than the pizza. The pizza was not bad, I have to go back and order only the pizza because I feel like it may have suffered due to ordering it with too many other things. It was not HOT HOT when it came to us and I was looking forward to cutting into it, none of which we got to do. I will say, try EVERYTHING with a truffle sauce if you are a truffle lover. Both the arancini and the gnocchi with the truffle sauce were among my two favorite dishes, and I am not even a huge gnocchi fan but I would 100% go back just for that dish it was so good. These were the stars of the show in my eyes. All in all there were a lot more items on the menu we would like to try, and we look forward to another visit.
