The food was excellent. We had the citrus glazed salmon which is superb. So was the bruschetta before dinner and they have wonderful shrimp cocktail. Service was excellent. Debbie could not have been better, and her recommendation for the limoncella dessert was right on.!

Wonderful ambiance, food is excellently prepared, presentation is superb. However, expect to spend about $30+ for your entree, salad. If you have a drink it ups the price everything is a la carte. To say the least, it is a delight to sit and enjoy a meal that is well presented and prepared, and that tastes as good as it looks!

Wonderful place. Elegant, yet casual enough to be comfortable. Delicious Italian food - the octopus carpaccio appetizer is a must, and their filet mignons are better than most steak houses. The staff is incredibly friendly - you really feel like family when you're there! BYOB on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.

If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would!!! INCREDIBLE and extremely friendly restaurant! I'm not sure what I enjoyed more, the amazing food or the staff! One manager in particular, has stood out both times I've gone here. He is one of the most accommodating, engaged and friendly people you will ever meet and makes a point to make each and every table feel special. He is so sweet to my 92 year old Grandmom. She love coming here because of it. This place really has it all whether you are looking for some delicious pizza, gluten free options, a nice drink with a couple friends or a really nice family dinner. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Very noisy and crowded with tables too close together. I was with a group of 6 and it was very cramped at our table. Atmosphere isn't the best. Food was very good though. Pasta was cooked perfectly...al dente. Chicken parmesan was outstanding.

Always reliable, La Locanda offers Italian and Italian-American standards prepared well. The lasagna and veal parmigiana were especially good. Always enjoy the broccoli rabe. Service is not rushed. We chatted and ate for 2.5 hrs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
