We love to see restaurants buzzing. I confirms my belief we are on the road to normalcy. Our dinner was delicious. More than anything was the service. Our Server, I believe Vicky, was fabulous. She was engaging, funny and very attentive. We would go back again soon.

Celebrated a friend's birthday last night at La Locanda. We were a party of four. I had a risotto special that was spectacular. Others had assorted seafood dishes that they seemed to enjoy and the bday boy had the Timbale which he loved.

As good as the food was, though, the service was even better. Our waiter Will was exceptional, taking care of our every need

Went with husband this past Saturday night. Had a reservation for 5:45 but got there early to have a seat at the bar. Bartender were good, rude people sitting at the bar. They should have just gotten a table, to be away from everyone as that was apparantly what they wanted.
We split a shrimp cocktail, delicious.
I had the "Black Taglionini". Waiter said "good choice" and OMG it was!!
Husband had veal and eggplant, he also enjoyed his.
Will definitely go back!

My husband and I come here all of the time. The food never disappoints. Their menu staples are always good and the chef prepares specials weekly which are always so good. Everyone is so friendly. They really treat you like Family. We bring our 2 yr. old Grandson here and they are so accomodating and friendly with Children. He now loves coming here with Nan and Pop.

This was our first time at the restaurant! Unfortunately we won't be going back. We ordered our food, waited 1 1/2 hours to be served and best yet, it was cold. Our table had ordered appetizers of which 1 came out in 30 minutes. Our server kept apologizing for the rest and after an hour, asked to cancel our appetizer. It was served anyway and then the dinners came 10 minutes later. They were served individually which is awkward. Can't wait for Tuscanna to open! Newtown Square needs a good, new venue!

Having traveled extensively during my career , I don’t hesitate to say that La Locanda is absolutely still my favorite restaurant in the entire country. Have dined there hundreds of times over the past decades, for both business and with family/friends…..and I am always completely satisfied by the extraordinary experience…..ownership/staff/service/food/wine/vibe…..always welcoming and wonderful.
Even though I am now a Florida resident, I always make a special trip there when we are back in the area.
Thank you again…….we had a wonderful family dinner last night!

This was my second date night of the year with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. With two small children under the age of 2, it’s hard to get away for a date. We were very much looking forward to this night. The food was great and although our waitress was very nice, the service was extremely lacking. Never heard the specials. Drinks were delayed. My husband had to ask for a steak knife, while the Italian table next to us had steak knives delivered before their food even came out. Water was never filled up and it took almost 30 minutes for our salad plates to be cleared from our table. I would recommend having the gentlemen that deliver the bread to the table, also be responsible for filling up the water and clearing the plates. We really wanted to love this place but was disappointed with the service.

We are frequent diners at La Laconda. This time, early on Sunday evening (6PM), the restaurant was VERY CROWDED. Tables were closer, tighter than usual. Our waitress was rushed. Unusually long to get drinks as well as very long wait to order and receive desert. We'll avoid Sunday evenings in the future and dine elsewhere.

What a lovely evening! We were greeted promptly at the door by the hostess when we arrived and she brought us to our table. Our server, Debbie came right over and introduced herself to us. She was so friendly and had a wonderful personality. She took our drink order and explained all the specials to us. The asparagus turnover appetizer was amazing!! Our meals did not disappoint either! The ribeye and veal chop were cooked perfectly the way we liked them. Then we topped the night off with some Bailey’s on the rocks and a piece of cheesecake! Food and service were amazing!! Debbie really made our night out special! Can’t wait to come back!!

Birthday dinner from my friend of 50 years!

To start our server Mia, was wonderful! Friendly, energetic and made several food suggestions. She was outstanding!

Appetizer was Roasted Artichokes, they were fabulous, and also Gluten Free… a great starter.


Our entrees consisted of Lobster Ravioli (so yummy) and my guest throughly enjoyed her Gnocchi Genovese, oh my goodness, they were outstanding. Highly recommend either of these meals.

Lastly, our birthday dessert, compliments of LaLocanda, awesome and delicious!

We seemed to have a new waiter and two people waiting on us at different times to expedite things. However the wrong dinner came out for one of us and we then had to wait a long while to get the correct one. Always loved La Laconda but this time was a disappointment.
