    We had the best waitress and service on a very busy day - Father's Day - for dinner. Spaghetti with cockles and chicken parm are our favorites along with a Caesar salad. Delicious!

    Our second visit 6/19/22 for Father's Day was wonderful! Our server Laura was so professional and attentive, brought delicious baked bread basket with oil &amp; cheese. We started off with starters, an order of expertly prepared fried calamari, two salads a house &amp; caesar which was absolutely delicious, I enjoyed my caesar salad which was perfectly dressed &amp; flavorful with house made croutons. My mother enjoyed her house salad. We all enjoyed our entrees, my father had chicken parmigiana with spaghetti with white wine sauce, he raved it was the best he's ever had, my sister had the burrata plate &amp; endive salad she enjoyed her meal, my mother and I had the New Zealand Cockles &amp; linguine in a white wine sauce with extra garlic, we both absolutely loved our dishes and was remarkable. Then we all ended the perfect dinner with delicious desserts, both my parents and I had the cannolis which were decadent and perfect crunch of that Sicilian shells. My sister had the Afogado which consists a shot of espresso over vanilla ice cream, I would like to see that added on the dessert menu as one so there's not two separate charges. Thank you for making Father's Day special for my dad and we all enjoyed our visit. I highly recommend La Locanda Ristorante for a outstanding italian meal!

    The food was delicious and the service great. Our server Kelly was top notch. The owner or GM checked in a couple of times. And it’s clear there were many regular customers which is always a good sign. Definitely going back very soon.

    La Locanda is our “go to” restaurant. We love the atmosphere, service and food. This time we went on a Monday, risky in any restaurant. My filet was perfectly prepared. My wife’s pasta dish was good but substandard for La Locanda, parts of it perhaps having been prepared for the weekend just past. But we still enjoyed the evening and surely will return many times.

    My husband and I share our meal so we can try different dishes. We alway enjoy the west coast oysters and the roasted artichokes in a truffle oil on a bed of sauteed spinach. The dover sole is my favorite main course dish! Overall delicious food and the service is outstanding!

    La Laconda is a very nice place to dine. The staff is super friendly, the meals are fresh and delicious. I love the soft shells and spaghetti which is seasonal, so I keep going to get my fix. You'll always have a great meal here.

    Always always always enjoy la loconda. Mario, Franco, and Massimo are consitistent figures, and always warm and welcoming. I get so excited when I have I know I have dinner plans there. It is what I dream about until I get there. Never, ever a bad meal. Service is always on point. Very professional, but not stiff. Always knowledgeable and accommodating. A must get is the homemade gnocchi but substitute the penne sauce (vodka cream sauce with pancetta) It is outrageously good. I wish the portion size was larger... but, that is because I would eat it by the bucket full... so that's just me. No matter what... every bite is heaven. The drinks are fairly priced with a great selection. Whether it's by the bottle or by the glass. Want to start with a cocktail? Yeah, they get that right everytime, as well. Monday after mothers day was packed at 630. That to me is a testament to the ones that have figured out where to get the best meal in town. Although, we didn't order, watching the tableside service of bronzino and dover sole was a beautiful touch, nice to experience how this restaurant goes the extra mile. I have been in the restaurant industry for 25+ years, on and off. So I can be annoying when it's attention to detail. I have never left without being satisfied. La Loconda, you are stuck with me as a guest. My only issue with our dinner was my mother's portion size. She ordered eggplant parm. She had more pasta on her plate and felt like the cost of the dish she should have been able to actually enjoy eggplant. I was looking for veal florentine, and was told it was not available. So I ordered the veal sorrento. And it was as great as I expected, because... laloconda never disappoints. I know we are post covid and the industry is going thru the motions. LA loconda still delivers 120% on service, food and drink quality. We had a wonderful evening, as always. Both Franco and Massimo checked in as well as our server. Thank you for a great night, once again.

    Visited this establishment with my family on 5/8/22 for Mother's Day. We were warmly welcomed by the host staff who brought us to our table as we had a reservation. The servers and wait staff were very attentive & professional. A lovely gentleman by the name of Massimo Fazzina who is the General Manager of La Locanda Ristorante who stopped by our table who politely asked us a favor if we would move to another table because of a large party they needed it for, we said no problem, he's such a great guy and was so awesome with my family and I. Now to the service and the food, everybody was so nice and we had freshly baked bread which was perfect with olive oil & grated cheese for dipping and the Food was outstanding at the establishment as it was at the catered events I've been to. My mom and my sister had glasses of wine and we all started off with two starters to share, the roasted artichokes were roasted to perfection with the sauteed garlicky greens, remarkable and the fried calamari was delicious, but I would like to see a better coating and have tentacles along with the rings but overall great. Then the 4 of us ordered our entrees I had my choice set on the Linguine w/ cockles but it wasn't offered so I had the veal marsala which was expertly prepared tender melt in your mouth veal scallopini thinly sliced and with a rich and flavor marsala wine & crimini mushroom sauce w/ sauteed green beans & a rich potato mash that both my father and I had, we both enjoyed our dishes. My mom had the Fettuccine Bolognese which she absolutely loved and my sister enjoyed her penne alla vodka, she's an vegetarian so she wasn't aware that it had prosciutto in it and removed the pieces from her dish, other than that she enjoyed it. We absolutely had the best time at La Locanda Ristorante. As a culinarian & foodie I Highly Recommend this establishment! Tell them Charlie sent you!

    Old school red sauce white tablecloth Italian joint. Our waitress (unfortunately forget her name) was wonderful. Our drinks (negroni and aperol spritz) were good but it's certainly not a cocktail bar. They maintain a thorough wine list. Our appetizer (buffalo mozzarella) was delicious, although the prosciutto was oddly thick cut. Our main issue was our entrees. We both were in the mood for classic Italian American dishes; I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and my wife the lasagna. We figured this is the place to absolutely nail the simple things. The red sauce was bland and probably could have been reduced quite a more as it was slightly soupy. The meatballs were also bland and tasted mostly of filler (bread) and garlic, and were quite dense and spongy due to that. They we're also quite grey for my taste and could have spent some more time being browned. My wife's lasagna was unevenly distributed (bites of just cheese and noodles), quite small for the price, and in her words "tasted like frozen". I like to give the benefit of the doubt and assume it was an off night. However I have to say these are the dishes I would expect a place like this to knock out of the park.

    Honestly at first, I was skeptical because we were the only people in the restaurant at 5:00 but by 7:00 when we were leaving every table was full on a Monday evening. My friend and I both decided on pasta dishes since the pasta is home made. We decided to share eggplant appetizer and it was delicious! She had the lasagna and I had cheese raviolis. Both dishes were awesome. We also went all out since we were celebrating both our birthdays and had fabulous desserts. We will definitely visit again.

    This was our very first experience at La Locanda. We were a little nervous because it was Easter Sunday...however, we were very happy with our food, the service and the ambience in the restaurant. We were greeted with a smile when we entered the restaurant and felt we had made the right choice! And we did! Our server, Lisa was friendly and knowledgable about the food. And her timing was right on! We will come back again! Perhaps next time, we can dine in another room..just for fun! Thank you!
