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.

We were a party of 6 out for dinner after a movie. When we arrived there were very few people there, we had a reservation yet the hostess told us she would see if our table was ready and took a while coming back to seat us.
Service was a bit slow but we entertained ourselves! The food was good, nicely presented and portions generous but not overwhelming.
La Locanda is a nice local restaurant for a good meal at reasonable prices. We will return.

Our table was partially situated in a doorway entrance leading to another dining room. This location was not conducive to an enjoyable dining experience. I swung around the table and sat next to my dear wife. The restaurant was quite crowded which was ok in itself, but it caused the wait staff to rush around during our entire visit. Again, not conducive to enjoyable dining. Bread was delivered by the bus staff with a very small butter serving, we had to request a second serving.The osso buco and fettucine with bolognese were both very tasty, good value. However, I requested a side order of pasta, and received a second entree at full price!

Our waiter was very effecient and polite. He was also serving a table of eight guests next to us which required attention. He was very good we just didn't see him often enough. We'll just chalk this first time experience up to the very busy holiday season, maybe try it again in the spring.

Thank you so much for a wonderful graduation celebration. We loved having a private dining room that felt like home. The food and service were amazing. Our waitress was there when we needed her but gave us plenty of time to talk and linger. Couldn’t have imagined it any better!

I've always enjoyed La Locanda. They have very good, authentic Italian cuisine. But this week, it was better than ever. We both had veal tenderloin, with mushrooms, and a Marsala cream sauce. The sauce was not heavy like many Marsala sauces can be. It was perfect. It was served with lightly seasoned scalloped potatoes, and French beans. We were only there for a quick, week night dinner, so that was it for us, and our gracious waiter didn't make us feel like we should be ordering more than we wanted. One glass each of a wonderful Montepulciano, and it was a perfect date night with my husband.

Unfortunately our experience was not good. I was bringing my adult daughter who had never been and we were very disapointed. Hostess did not greet us warmly. We were seated in a room by ourselves and forgotten. I had to find the hostess to ask for someone to take our order. Food was basic and my entree needed flavor and diced chicken made me feel like a toddler. I suggest grilling the breast then only slicing and placing over the orichette. The bread and peppers were the highlight of the meal. Our server did a fine job and the gentleman who poured our water and cleaned the table was a delight. The dessert we ordered was out of stock and the gelato that we settled for was a sorbet consistency. I was so sad that this was not fun night for us.

We were celebrating a belated anniversary and truly enjoyed ourselves here. I had the House Specialty (Timballo Di Teramo - Light Crépe Pasta, Layered With a Spinach Omelette & Tiny Meatballs on a Bed of Marinara Sauce, Topped With Besciamella) which was just the right size and so delicious. My wife enjoyed one of the specials of the day, Veal Ossobusco, full of flavor! Service by Danielle was right on. I would say it was one of the nicer Italian restaurants we have been to in quite awhile. Weekend reservations appear to be mandatory for evening dining. Christmas decorations are now up which makes the dining area even more inviting! Superb!

We have been to this restaurant quite a few times previously and enjoy it. This time, the food was not cooked as requested and the chops were over-cooked. The wine by the glass was quite expensive which is okay if you get a respectable pour. However, it was about 4 oz. and definitely not worth the price. I don't remember it being like this previously.

Very friendly, efficient service. We had a 5 month old baby with us and although he was very good throughout the meal people were very accommodating. All of our meals were tasty, well- prepared and plentiful. Noise level was quiet on a Thursday.
Really enjoyed this dining exoeriene!

Stopped in for lunch and had the traditional Chicken Parmesan meal. Very authentic and tastefully prepared. Chicken serving size was a bit small, but then I reminded myself it was a lunchtime meal (and price), so finally considered it adequate.

Went there last Friday night. Fiancé had a gift card. Service was fantastic and our waitress was very attentive and polite. Food on the other hand was another story. While it was edible, it was not enjoyable. I got the eggplant rollatini which was basically eggplant mush covered in cheese and ragu. Fiancé got mushroom ravioli with prosciutto. Raviolis tasted old and like they were from plastic packaging and the “prosciutto” tasted more like old Canadian bacon. Would have sent them back but as it was a gift card and we didn’t want to wait for new entrees we figured it wasn’t worth it. The price points for both entrees was very disproportionate with the quality. Was both of our first times there and don’t think we will be returning.

We were disappointed with the food and the waiters. One seated us at the table and told us he would be our waiter and then someone else showed up. It was confusing. The food was not good. My mom's veal was tough and my soft-shell crabs had no flavor. The broccoli rabe was overcooked. The owner came by and took my mother's meal off of the check but our dinner was still over $100. Will not go back any time soon.
