I have been here numerous fun and delicious times . As I was leaving my home my neighbor warned me the spot was going downhill and to try to get into Delfina . Well the artichoke
Is always good but the pasta was not eatable . The first order was so salty it was an obvious mistake so we tried again . This time it was so aldente that it was like chewing a piece of leather . We were embarrassed to be complainers So packed it for the homeless along Valencia Street . I do not have a t know what happened but a great place during restaurant week deteriorated to just so bad and such a disappointment .
Excellent service and exceptional food! A true treat!!! Go!
The food at Locanda is authentic and absolutely delicious...can't say enough good things about the chef, her staff and the wait staff....love this place!
Food has really gone downhill. Server was rude.
We split the eggs benedict carbonara, latke-style hashbrowns, and the chocolate hazelnut bombolone. Everything was great!
Excellent. Loved it
Good but nothing special.
oh boy. we brought my 10 year old her for her birthday-- along with 2 of her closest friends, and a bunch of family kids. i think the waitstaff was surprised that we chose Laconda for a kids' birthday party, but they rose to the occasion and were super with the kids even though we took over a reasonable amount of space (and time) on their busy night full of dates, etc. The pastas were all devoured by all the kids' and we found also that they LOVED the amazing fried olives (filled with mozzerella). Everything rocked-- including the hand made drinks-- and though the bill was high, it was worth it NOT to rent a mediocre space in a "kids" restaurant or themed place, and just have an amazing meal together!
We had a great brunch. The eggs Benedict was one of the best I have had. I will definitely be back!
The food was delicious. Portions are a little small so order accordingly.
The drinks were spot on, food prepared beautifully with fabulous flavor combinations. The waiter who served us was a little pushy with his recommendations. Otherwise it was a perfect meal. The blood orange tart was to die for!
We had an impeccable waiter who clued us in on the menu highlights including the limited specials available - one of which we went for and it was incredible. Steered us well on our pasta-craving journey and we left feeling incredibly satiated and craving more.
All dishes had a nice twist to it, I was pretty much impressed. Will go there definitely again.
Every time we go, the food is excellent and prepared and served with knowledge and care. the wait staff is friendly but not intrusive and the portions are just right. Not too small to share and not too big to finish and still be able to have a coffee and dessert.
I love everything about Locanda except I always feel there is a reservation waiting on your table and therefore there is a rushed feeling. This is the second time I felt the check was offered without being asked while there was still wine on the table. My bill was nearly 250$ for two people but they had no qualms making me feel like my time was up. The food is savory and requires slow eating. When I looked behind me there were still open tables and I thought they could have given me another half hour. I know this is the sf restaurant circuit but it’s not my first choice for a friend catch-up dinner
Terrific food and wonderful service! Our waitress was wonderful and the pasta and steak dishes were excellent.
Table too small for 6 people; charging $9 for bread is a joke. Food really good
My wife and I decided to skip the company's holiday party and go to Locanda. Food and service were amazing. To start we had pork jerky and the burrata w/ Chicories and Buffalo Ricotta, as well as the Pizza Bianca, everything was really good. For the main course we shared the grilled trout, plus the bucatini. The trout although it was the "small size", it was pretty big, delicious, perfect to share.
I loved the service, never we felt that something was missing. Our glasses were always full, dirty plates were removed fast.
We will be back!
Service was slow and she would forget have the things we asked for and would have to ask again. The music was v loud and we could hardly hear one another at the table.
Stumbled across this place on OpenTable looking for somewhere to have brunch on a last minute weekend trip up to San Fran. So glad I found out!
The food was incredible, traditional brunch fare, with a bit of an Italian twist. Personally I had the benedict and the pancakes and cleared both plates! The service was impeccable.
One of the best dining experiences I've had in a while, can't wait to come back on our next trip to SF!
Service was enthusiastic & knowledgeable. The food was impeccable. Crab pasta was so flavorful and perfect to share before an entree. My husband had the lamb chops which were tender and perfectly prepared. The cod & mussels were absolutely perfect. The waiter said that the portion sizes were not large but I thought they were generous.
Great atmosphere, good music - lively but not so loud you can't talk, food was quite good (a bit heavy handed with salt, but I don't mind that). Great for a friend get together or small business dinner.
Some people in my party arrived early and checked in before I. I arrived and wanted to tell the hostess that everyone had arrived (most places i know only eat when the entire party is present). Instead of kindly asking us to wait, in a condescending voice she told us she’d “seat us in 5 minutes closer to our reservation.”
Towards the end of the meal, the sever started to clear everyone’s dishes the suddenly gave us our check, while someone was still eating their meal. Didn’t ask if we wanted dessert or more time, and no one in my party asked for the wanted check.
The food was delicious but the lack luster customer service leaves little to be desired
The waitstaff was superb. The food was magnificent. Some items were quite overpriced ($14 for 4 slices of tomato...meh). Split everything to taste it and save some money.
Brunch was amazing
This place never disappoints. Friendly and attentive staffs. Great pacing in bringing out the food. And of course , their food were delicious.
Great spot...definitely on our rotation in SF. We plan on visiting ofter.
That rare thing in town: a roman restaurant, with a local creativity. Great bar and wine list, too.
The food is great fresh Italian . We always go for the roman style artichokes.. then the whole fresh fish and perhaps a pasta ( the pasta is tasted but not consistent : way too chewy last time ) salads are a better choice especially now in tomato season ... good bar menu & lucky for us a peach dessert .
The servers are fun and professional and early eating is more fun in this neighborhood !
Great setting and delicious Italian food. Great wine too! Super friendly staff.
First time there. Food was terrific as was the service. Definitely going back.
Good food, great service. Brunch with a reservation.
Our server was excellent and the food was terrific. We shared a salad and entree so we could each get our own pasta course.
We had dinner before attending Hamilton, and everything was excellent. The staff was attentive and knowlegable, the food was fantastic and the cocktail menu was a lot of fun.
The Menu is always good.
Great Italian , local food, inspired dishes.
The Jewish Artichokes are always on the menu and are terrific!
The Sunday night special was and has been special on every one of my visits.
Bravo, keep up the good work
Great place. Great food.
I brought a friend to Locanda who has a lot of serious allergies and was visiting from out of town. Our server was outstanding in being patient with my guest, and also triple checking with the kitchen on anything she was interested in eating. The staff did a great job to accommodate the allergies, and still be incredibly hospitable and welcoming. The only slight mis-step might be that I had called a day ahead to give the allergies to the restaurant, and they were put into my open table notes, but the message never seemed to get delivered to the server before she took our order. Nevertheless, she handled it like a true pro and we had an awesome brunch!
Locanda is always reliable. Lively ambiance, excellent food, very personable staff
attentive service. Five star experience
Some of the food was great, like the Jewish Artichoke. Other things, like my lamb chops, were not. Both chops were extremely fatty and one of them was raw. I picked over the raw one until I could get the server's attention - he took the plate, had the bone cooked, not the meat, and had the bone delivered back to the table.
