the Food is very good. typical italian dishes from a good qualtiy. we had a table in front of the restaurant, which was nice, but the Restaurant nearby and the locanda compete in loud outdoor music. the Service wasn`t attentive at all.

I must admit that I expected more of the standard of restaurants (food quality) in Florida. Especially when the average price of a main dish is around $20. A very decent exception was La Locanda in Miami Beach. Our family (2A&2C) had all different dishes and we all loved it! We all commented that the tastes were really delicious; the... More

After a little research, we reserved at La Locanda and was greeted in Italian by the hostess (a good sign, she spoke English by being Italian I could converse with her and already got a good feeling...). We were not disappointed, the place was packed (the resto beside it was empty), service was prompt and courteous. Lots of good real... More

We had a very enjoyable meal on the outdoor sidewalk dining area. I had a pasta with mushrooms entree and my husband ordered a seafood pasta. The tiramisu was delicious and we enjoyed chatting with the owner after our meal as he was visiting with diners! Check out the Italian wines by the bottle(skip the Crane Lake).

Having spent most of the afternoon and early evening in traffic going from the Beach to Coral Gables and then downtown, I headed back to South Beach to have dinner before taking a late flight home. I avoided the relentless Hawkers on Ocean Drive and walked south of 5th. What good luck to find this restaurant, which was lively but... More

We had an 8:00 reservation and did not get seated until 9:00. They apparently way overbooked. As a result, the food and service were just average, the noise level was deafening. They have always been one of our go-to places in the past. Not anymore.

Good service, authentic Italian food and staff make this family run restaurant worth a visit. While the food is simple Italian it is very good quality and it's price value is high. Staff are very polite and efficient, qualities that are often found lacking in many Miami Beach eateries.

I don't know how I've lived in Miami 9 years now and just tonight visited La Locanda, but jokes on me apparently - this place is amazing. No south beach pretension, just well kept homey vibe inside with friendly attentive staff. Our waiter Tiziano was perfect, prompt, attentive, friendly, but not looming or pushy. We started with the proscuitto and... More

On our first visit it was a busy Saturday evening and nothing was a problem, the Owner even made time to say hi. On our second visit was on a Monday so it was quieter than the Saturday it was our final... More
