Food snd wine excellent and service as well :-)
Good Italian food but could have been hotter (temperature wise)
Very good food.
Alfredo along with the rest of the staff were all great.
Always the best. Best food. Best service. Best atmosphere.
The fact that the restaurant was full to capacity with very appealing people says all you need to know about the wonderful restaurant. I took four friends there last
night and they loved every bite of it.
Terrible service; have eaten there a few times and the service has never been very good. Last night it was awful. Would not return and advised friends of our experience.
Service was horrible throughout the entire meal.
Such beautiful and authentic dishes. Thank you for a lovely night out in our neighborhood.
We’ve eaten here often and the food is excellent. They expanded the outdoor dining and done it well. Our only complaint was our waiter seemed more interested in chatting with another waiter than being attentive to us.
Loved it! Will definitely return
Better be a regular here. Food is excellent. Waiter was fine, but the vibe of this place was off.
Miss Osteria Bigoli down the street.
Perfect neighborhood Italian restaurant. Terrific on all levels: food, ambiance and, most important these days, service, which is neither rushed nor slow or lacking. Makes for a perfect, memorable evening each time. Love coming back here, time and again.
Always a great destination for an elevated meal with outdoor seating
Most incredible Italian I’ve had outside of Italy!
Anniversary dinner. Food was spectacular, service was pretty good. Great ambiance.
Delicious. Low key and ver pleasant. I recommend the bolognese. Delicious!
First time we had a good time . This time we Did not get a nice table and too much noise.
This place is shockingly delicious! The meatballs were to die for, as were the pastas. Great service too. I wasn't sure how it would be based on the location (next to a parking lot) but it certainly didn't matter once inside, the ambiance is cute and the food is everything. Can't wait to go back!
extraordinary. I am a frequent customer and satisfied fan
This hidden neighborhood gem is an authentic slice of Italy in Santa Monica. From the food --- carefully prepared with quality ingredients in a manner that holds true to real Italian cooking (as opposed to the Americanized version ...) --- to the professional service offered by an almost totally Italian staff, this is a real-deal Italian experience.
On our visit, fried stuffed zucchini blossoms were a special appetizer --- delicious. Pastas were perfectly sauced and well balanced, some prepared with house-made fresh pasta. One member of our party had the chicken parm (one of the few nods to Italian-American tradition ...) which was outstanding.
Compact but well-curated wine list with good selections from many regions of the Italian peninsula.
Well worth a visit!
Food and service were very good. My wife and I really enjoy the outside setup.
It’s great but they’ve lost me forever with those prices. sorry.
This restaurant is terrific. They have dealt with the demands of the pandemic by creating a lovely front patio, where you are shielded quite well from other diners and the noise level is low. The staff is always great, and the food always excellent.
Excellent service, ambiance and food
Absolutely fantastic food. The service was impeccable and though it was our first time, it felt like a place with many, many regulars. It is not cheap, but worth every penny.
Great food, great service
First off, the food here is excellent. My only complaint is the waiters are standoffish. Saturday was no exception. You just get a feeling that unless you are a regular they are almost irritated to have to deal with you. Showing some excitement over your food and us a customer who chose your restaurant out of the hundreds on the westside is what separates Locanda from being truly a great dining experience.
Top shelf Italian. A little Napoli on the west side. Been going for years, never disappointed.
Excellent little spot on Montana. Great Italian food - they know their stuff….
Some dishes really great, as the gnocchis
Some very good
Service very correct
Great food. Great service
Excellent Service! Beautiful atmosphere! Delicious food!
good food, and the new outdoor patio is very pleasant, and quieter than inside.
Great place …. Incredible food
Great! We had a lovely table under an arbor that’s been landscaped beautifully. Very special for a very special occasion.
We went to celebrate a birthday. The food was delicious and fresh. Wines were good too. Suggest bringing your own bottle if you know you will be having a few glasses. Waiter very nice. Will come back.
Amazing food amazing service
Pasta & wine at its best! Outstanding service & atmosphere.
