Great atmosphere, excellent service..we had drinks and 2 of us shared an antipasto plate, as they were not hungry. I had a ribollita soup as did my wife and it was delicious. I also had papardelle with sausage that was excellent

I took my wife, a certified pasta enthusiast, here for her birthday. Staff was welcoming, accommodating, and helpful. The atmosphere is cozy and charming, but the food for sure is the highlight. The entire food procession is start-to-finish good, but the pasta is to die for. We want to go back simply to try the other pastas we didn't order.

The first time we came we had a lovely experience at the bar. It was a cold night and we were craving a cozy spot with delicious Italian food and this place really hits the spot. Be sure to order a few plates to pass around the table and a bottle of wine too. Locanda is perfect for an intimate date or a special occasion with friends and family.

We were very disappointed in the food, except for the desserts, and the ribollita was actually inedible. The wine was good.

One of favorite restaurants in Brooklyn or NYC for that matter. A place we take Manhattan friends when they want great cocktails, superb food, and much less than Manhattan prices. Ambiance is funky and mixed age crowd is lively. Take note of the brownstone architecture in the neighbor.

Acting on recommendations, maybe I expected too much. It has charm and character. A warm, neighborhood feel. It's cute that it maintained the interior of the old neighborhood pharmacy. What a find if the food had been great or a great value, but it wasn't - it was just OK. The service was problematic. No real fault of the waiter - the waiter was trying but they were just stretched too thin and couldn't keep up with the demands of the tables in a good service kind of way. I had a glass of wine in mind for each of my dishes, but that was just wishful thinking. This is an order a bottle kind of place, because you may be hanging out with your empty glass for a while if trying a by the glass approach. Thankfully, we ordered a bottle of water. Also - where's the sauce - ordered a soup, came out like veggie mash, without broth. Also, the pappardelle was alot of shredded meat, very little red sauce. Maybe it's a regional thing, or the kitchen's preference to go very light on the sauces, but I love a good broth or sauce. In my opinion, not worth going out of your way to try this place. Based on the reviews, the whole world disagrees with me, but it just didn't come together for me.

My husband & I had yet another fantastic dinner here on Friday! We were welcomed by the staff & enjoyed an interesting wine with our shared plates: liver app (my fave), calamari app, mushroom ravioli, & steak. If you haven’t been here yet you must go!

I’ve gone here before and the food and service were excellent. However, this time service was awful and wait staff very rude. My friend ordered a fish dish that was disgustingly swimming in olive oil. She apologetically spoke to the waiter about it who condescended to her and didn’t believe that there was anything wrong with the dish. He took it away and brought her a bowl of beans snottily saying there was no olive oil in that! I’ve never encountered a ruder server in all my years in NYC. Suffice it to say that we left without ordering our usual desserts and disgestifs. With all the great spots in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill, I’m not giving this restaurant another cent of my money.
