The food was excellent. My wife had the bronzino cooked to perfection. I had lamb chops that were very good. We shared a bottle of Chianti with the meal. We will go back again in the near future.
Wonderful place. Excellent service. Great drink and food. Nice to see that they have their own generator so that they weathered the storm rather well on Sunday night. Best negroni I ever had, thanks to the bartender.
Love this restaurant. The food and service are excellent! Looking forward to returning soon.
If you are not part of a large group and/or a regular, don’t waste your time. Service was horrible! My wife emailed the restaurant indicating this, and hasn’t heard back. Maybe the response time is slow in this aspect too.
Our party of 5 had the lunch buffet and some ordered from menu. The food was good
Delicious food and great service, as usual.
Group that was seated next to us was loud and obnoxious and using language that IMO was not appropriate. We ate quickly and left without dessert.
Excellent fare in a very nice environment. We requested a quiet table and were seated in the rear dining room and it was perfect for 85% of our meal. Alas they has to start seating people around us and it became a little noisy.
La Locanda is a local gem with great food and atmosphere in a comfortable setting. Enjoy!
Outstanding service, as always. Delicious food.
I have eaten at La Locanda on many occasions and I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal. The meat dish I had was expertly grilled and the fish ordered by the rest of the party (Excellent Dover Sole) was fileted table side and served with a fantastic oil/lemon sauce. Do not miss out on this gem.
I went here to celebrate Valentine's Day with my girlfriend. The food was excellent and so was the service. I had Penne a la vodka and my girlfriend had Eggplant rotellini. Both of us enjoyed our meals. The tiramisu was very delicious if you choose to have dessert. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice evening with their significant other or just for dinner.
Eggplant was not prepared well
Always very good - food and service.
First time going to the place on Valentine's day. great atmosphere wait staff was excellent, food was good and would go back again.
Very very nice place. Good food, nice atmosphere. Service staff very friendly and helpful!
We have eaten here a few times and the food and service have always been excellent. Will come back again.
The meal and servers were excellent.
The staff and the could not be better. We left more than satisfied.
Great veal chop. Nice BYOB night. Very pleasant waitress.
Pork appetizer was great. Entrees were nothing special.
I had not visited La Locanda in a number of years. But I will be back soon. The food was very good. The atmosphere wonderful as was the service. I am always trying to find a restaurant where you can actually have a conversation without shouting. And this is one definitely fits the bill. We had five at our table and we had a great time.
Friendly, welcoming, great service, unpretentious, pleasant ambiance, authentic Italian food.
pasta with garlic and olive oil was disappointing on this visit. not sure if the olive oil was off or the garlic, but certainly not up to standard
LaLocanda is truly a neighborhood gem. The service is attentive, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is lovely and relaxing. We missed the peppers that used to be served with the bread this time.
We had a lovely family meal served by friendly and effcient waitress.
My Fiance and I made a 7:45 dinner reservation, when we arrives there were several patrons waiting inside the door so we proceeded to grab 2 seats that just opened at the bar. We were at the bar for about 25 minutes when the hostess came over to let us know our table still wasn't ready. When I told her if it were much longer we might just eat at the bar, she said "oh why don't you do that, it'll be easier." Not sure why I bothered to even secure a reservation...would have been more courteous of her to check on our table. Won't dine there again.
Made a reservation for 3 people not thinking it would be a problem to change it to 4 when we arrived. Told hostess (older blonde lady) and her reply was ‘yea, it actually is’. Not sure how many restaurants have 3 person tables and I sure didn’t see any when we were there. So not sure why it was an issue when we sat at a table for 4. Maybe she was having a bad day but she still shouldn’t have said that to me.
Always great food and service. Favorite of our entire family.
Fantastic as usual!!! I went with a few of my friends for the "Friday lunch buffet". The food and assortment were just perfect. The price cannot be beat. There was delicious roasted pork, chicken in a mushroom sauce, swordfish, pasta in a cream sauce, breaded mussels with Italian herbs and spices, roasted potatoes, roasted pepper and olives, caesar salad just to name a few items. I am not a big dessert person but I decided to try the cannolis and a strawberry cake. I am so glad I did. They were out of this world as was everything else we had. The service is always top notch also. If you haven't tried this restaurant yet you must very soon. You will not be disappointed.
The food was wonderful. I had the crabcakes, which were basically baked lump crab with subtle seasoning -- no fillers, and not too much salt, as crabcakes often have. My partner had eggplant rollatini, and thought it was fabulous. We were seated by a fireplace, which was charming. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. This is the kind of place that makes you feel warm and welcome.
After years of going to the same restaurant, we decided to try La Locanda. It was fabulous! The food was amazing and the service was extraordinary. Massimo treated us like VIPs. I really enjoyed my experience at La Locanda and look forward to many visits here.
They rush you in and rush you out. If you want a fast, decent meal, this is the place. But it's not a great value. Specials are $35 - $40 and drinks are expensive. So, if you like Italian food, and you want quick, go there! If you want some time to talk with your friends -- if you want to linger over your meal -- this is not the place. They'll be clearing your place before you take your last bite!
All said above. Good food. Great service. Interesting specials.
Best Italian restaurant in suburban Phila. Maria and Franco are great owners and always friendly. Massimo is the Host and always fun and a gentleman.
Warm and friendly yet respectful decor with tablecloths, table rose and open fireplaces. Many choices on menu. All were pleased and I can vouch for the lemon veal piccata. It was my brother’s birthday and we did lunch. Very nice.
We were seated in a side room where windows were closed off and a TV (turned fireplace) was all there was to look at. Even though we had a reservation, the main dining room was packed when we arrived, so we were seated in an area we had never seen before (originally a porch I think). The usual ambiance was not so good this time, but the food was. For lunch, we thought it was a bit pricey and we didn't even get offered bread, rolls, etc. We felt like our table was just an "extra" table added to an already busy waiter. Not our best visit.
Great food and service. Very accommodating staff, friendly and attentive. Food was delicious.
