The food was excellent, as always. It's upscale Italian with variations. The menu includes the standards for those who don't experiment. Service is gold standard excellent among the best I've experienced anywhere.

We had a fabulous experience here from the server to the food everything was perfect. The menu was outstanding and for a Sunday night the place was lively and full. Very friendly and we can't wait to go back again.

Had the Grilled Jumbo Shrimp $30.00 on a
Bed of Sautéed Cannellini Beans & Spinach, White Wine, Lemon, Caper Sauce Gf

I've had this before and noticed there was limited amount of the cannellini beans this time.
Please add more beans to the dish. There are 6 grill shrimp which were very good.

This is always an enjoyable evening. Everything on the menu is Old Country Italian. Served perfectly! In my opinion, one of the best Italian restaurants in the Suburban Philadelphia region.

Never brought one of our drinks, brought the wrong appetizer and messed up one of our dinners. If the food was amazing, the spotty service could be easily overlooked. But the food was just ok, not good just ok. Won’t be returning.

My wife and I went for dinner. The food was excellent and our waitress was very attentive and friendly. The restaurant itself was clean and noise level was very low. We were even approached by management to see if we were pleased with our meal. I would dine there again without hesitation.

We were having an early lunch before a play. We wanted it to feel festive (and we wanted brunch cocktails) so we asked to sit in the bar area. They bartender took great care of us, although she’s probably not used to having to wait a table right after opening. All the food was delicious, from short rib and mushroom ravioli to shrimp salad. We’ll def be back!

First time here and will definitely return. K, our server, was outstanding and never rushed us. Was celebrating a long overdue lunch with long time friend and it was the perfect place for conversation and catching up. The Bellini martinis are outstanding!

Server was horrible! My husband had the prime rib. The meat was good. The potatoes were a joke, it wasn’t even half of a potato. My chicken parm was good. I only agree to come here because it is close to our home. Otherwise, I wouldn’t set foot in the place. Oh, and the hostess is obnoxious.

We have been patrons of Ristorante La Locanda for more than 10 years but lately have noticed a downward move in food quality and servers. We hope this is just a cycle that will prove short in duration as the restaurant has fond memories for our family.

Wonderful food and great service. Everyone was very friendly and our server Brandon was perfect. When he was in the vicinity of our table he never failed to check in to see if we needed anything.

It was our first time there and we can't wait to go back. The prices were worth it because the food and service were excellent!

We were rushed to get to a movie and originally had reservations at another restaurant . They wait at other restaurant was even with reservations was at least 20
Min behind. We left and drive to LaLocanda. They took us to a table within minutes and were very eager to help us make our movie. Waitress was very helpful and food was delicious. We will definitely be going back

Great food. Pork Milanese was delicious as was the swordfish. Apps were also tasty, bresaola and grilled calamari. Our server John was courteous, timely and attentive. The atmosphere is convivial. All around a marvelous evening.

We went to there NYE dinner with reservations at 8:30PM. Music was advertised to start at 9:00PM.

We were seated at 8:50 which was fine. Unfortunately they took too many reservations and couldn’t clear the are for dancing until 10:30pm. They should have planned their reservation strategy to allow for the music to start at 9. This was very disappointing. The food and service was excellent as usual but it seemed they wanted more dinners than the advertised music/dancing for the guests.

We had to wait half an hour for our table which was small for 6 people. The birthday boy was disappointed in his osso bucco which was much fattier than the last time he ordered it.

Had a nice holiday dinner with family. As always, excellent selection of food from menu and specials. We have a vegan in the family and there was plenty to order from for that dietary choice. The restaurant decorations were festive and set a nice back drop. The food was delicious...scallops, swordfish, pasta, osso bucco...all prepared excellently and plated beautifully.

We have been to La Locanda many, many times by ourselves on a date night, with friends, and yes family. When there are several folks at the table, all the food comes out together. The staff, the reception, the ambience and of course the food are all great. It is a great value, very comfortable surroundings, and the staff is most helpful and friendly. What else could you want in a restaurant...nothin!

With the coronavirus guidelines in place, closing the restaurants for in-house dining, we decided to call for take-out from the restaurant. Only one word I could describe the experience ‘Awesome’. When I got our dinners home it was like eating right at LaLocanda. Meal was still hot, portions and quality were all the same. For our local neighbors please continue to support Franco, Mario and the entire staff thru take out and delivery until the virus is over.

We were celebrating a special event. The waitress was very personable, great personality! and the staff were friendly as well. We all ordered something different, NY strip, crab cakes, Salmon, Lobster ravioli... and everyone was very happy. There were 8 of us. I did not think the prices were high as said in other reviews. The evening was a success and we all left feeling very happy
