Everything was immaculate, a fabulous representation of Tuscan Italian cuisine utilizing exceptional ingredients. The special house reserve EVOO for dipping was spectacular, as were the house cured green olives. Homemade fresh pasta ragu, and gnocchi with shrimp an asparagus with basil and cheese were great....More

Amazing. Authentic Italian food in a really charming setting with warm and attentive service. We started with a gin & grapefruit cocktail and a specialty artichoke negroni. Both delightful. The chicken liver and the cauliflower antipasto were both excellent. I don't love liver, but hubby...More

Went here with a group of six. Small, close, intimate space. Much detail in all of the old apothecary trappings. Attentive service, not rushed. Lots of banter with the head waiter. Every dish and drink was delicious. Pasta cooked just right. The pistacio cake for...More

The service is excellent and the food is good. We enjoy other Italian restaurants in Park Slope where the food is better. The menu is limited but the wine menu is huge. Stingy amount of wine - especially at $15 a glass. I had the...More

Went here to meet a friend who lives around the corner -at her suggestion. I figured we were in for normal Italian bistro fare. From the start, I was impressed. Cocktail list was extensive, with 6 different Negronis and 6classic martinis made with their own...More

This is authentic cuisine in the spirit of the regions. Well done, these folks are no amateurs. Each dish hit the mark. Been privileged to travel extensively in Italia, and I have rarely found a US restaurant that hits the mark like Locanda. And staff...More

My wife and I dined here twice during our recent trip to New York City. The restaurant is housed in an old pharmacy. If you're not looking for it, you might pass by without noticing it. Much of the interior has not changed w/ the...More

We can to Locanda based on the recommendation of a Manhattan restaurateur, who claimed "it's the best Italian restaurant in Brooklyn!". He might be right, the food is so good, I am giving it only 4 stars because the tables are so small and the...More

Great ambiance and waitstaff were excellent. The food (and wine) were also quite good. Portions were a bit small, but food was fine. Sardine appetizer dish is a must. The fish entree is a bit inconsistent. Much better on my first visit versus my second.

Unfortunately I don’t know but I suspect you can call and make arrangements with them, it is a very small restaurant and I would trust them to honor their commitment! Remember sharing food there is the goal, they will tell... More
