I went to this restaurant for a team dinner for work. The service was very personal and fast. I am quite picky when it comes to Italian food. This one passed my test. The food was fresh and all homemade. Service was top notch. Lots of great choices on the menu. By the time dessert came we were quite full... More

We ended up here after Fellini Cafe failed us on a reservation but this turned out to be a much better choice. The atmosphere was much less chaotic and we could actually have a conversation. Our waiter Tony treated us very well and made us feel special. The food was very good, though a bit pricey. I had octopus for... More

The price did not meet what was served on the table. The environment was good but that was the only thing.

La Locanda always delivered. It is our go to place when we are in Delco. I almost always order the Timballo Di Teramo. I have found this no where else. The Veal Tenderloin is also out of this world good.

We needed to find a restaurant that could accommodate a large group on short notice and La Locanda went out of its way to help. We ended up in a private room, with a waiter who made sure we had everything we needed. He was helpful with the menu, very funny with the children and was just a great waiter.... More

I went to La Locanda with a friend Saturday Night and WOW!!!! The food and service were fantastic. We were seated promptly even though the restaurant was very crowded. It is a great sign when a restaurant is busy but you still get seated promptly with magnificent service. They have mastered this quality of service to perfection. . I had... More

We have driven by this place so many times and finally decided to stop after a movie and have dinner. We didn't have reservations but were there a little bit ahead of the crowd so we were able to get a table. It looked as though this place is usually busy with a fairly regular clientele. The service was excellent.... More

My husband and I have been to La Locanda on many occasions by ourselves, with friends and as an event. Each time the food and the staff have been nothing less than wonderful and gracious. The menu never disappoints!
