This restaurant/hotel has a good position on the waterfront, but I believe they have rested on their laurels. If in residence, you could be made a fuss of, if not, you could be ignored, until time for the bill. Food was mediocre Would not go back.

Came here with my wife and had a table out front with the perfect view of the lake. Truly outstanding view. Book one in advance if you can. Tuna sashimi starter was excellent as was the sea bass ravioli and the lasagne. Interesting wine list featured smaller Italian vineyards all reasonably priced. As it got a bit bit chillier later...

Locanda is one of those restaurants you have to book (we were turned away a few days previously). The view is delightful---if you get there early, as we did you can get a seat facing the promenade and the waterfront looking out across the bay. The service wasn't as friendly as some but it was quick enough and the food... More

We enjoyed dinner here on our last night in Salo. The service was incredible, the extra touches such as complimentary starters and excellent knowledge of the wine really made such a difference. We didn't feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed being attended to. When we come back to Salo we will certainly visit here again!

All begun well and friendly, but unfortunately the waitress forgot to bring the bread to start with... We waited and finally the food was served (okay'ish quality) but then my tomato salad arrived and to my surprise they were just sliced tomatoes and nothing else. Tried to communicate with the waitress but no response. Anyway, we were charged in full... More

Had the most delicious lunch here today. The location at the water's edge is beautiful, the staff could not have been more friendly and all in all It was superb. Can't sing its praises highly enough. I would definitely recommend it.
