We ate there for lunch and dinner. All the food was very good and large portions. The fish mixed grill will feed two easy and probably 3 people. It is great, but don't order the clams and mussels for an app, because they come with...More

Great spot on the beach under trees and shade. Drinks were great, food was pretty good. Wouldn't recommend the pizza, but other than that, we liked it.

This was our second visit to Locanda, and we came in search of the seafood soup. We were not disappointed. A huge bowl of seafood covered with a thick tomato sauce and wedges of fresh break to sop it up with were amazing. The pizza...More

Lovely by day, special by night. The owners of Locanda have used lighting, furnishings and decor to create a special, but appropriate-to-Playa Samara environment. And the food is reasonably priced and delicious. From pizza to lobster, there is likely to be something's on the menu...More

Description
Italian restaurant and Pizzeria, with large spaces and comfortable tables and seats on the beach, all under the shade of spectacular palm trees. The kitchen offers one of the most exciting interpretations of traditional Italian dishes, both land and sea, and a great choice of Pizzas cooked in a wood oven, accompanied by a good wine list and a wide selection of cocktails.
