We seemed to have a new waiter and two people waiting on us at different times to expedite things. However the wrong dinner came out for one of us and we then had to wait a long while to get the correct one. Always loved La Laconda but this time was a disappointment.

I had the snapper special and husband had crab ravioli, both were outstanding! The pistachio gelato was the best ever. Our server (Johnny S.)was so knowledgeable and fun. Plus his recommendations were spot on. Also the bartender made the best Vodka Gimlet.

The Pluses: The Bronzoni was great as was the Screpelle soup.
The Minues: The Veal alla Parmigiana was tough and did not taste very good - kinda of "gamey." I wish I had ordered it with chicken instead. It took a second request to finally be served some extra marinara sauce. Otherwise, the waitress was quite attentive.

Came for soft shell crabs with my daughter. Dinner was perfect as always. Honestly my favorite place in Newtown Square and perhaps the Main Line. Food, service, atmosphere, and other guests are all five start. No reason to look elsewhere - unless you want sushi then go to a Japanese restaurant.

This was our first visit to,La Locanda. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. However my wife was seated beneath an air conditioning unit that sprayed her with condensation. The unit was wiped with a cloth but still dropped evaporation. It finally stopped but she had to get anew place setting plus some water spilled into her drink. We managed to complete our dinner, however it would have been much more enjoyable if they had just moved us to the nest table which remained unoccupied the entire time. We will go back because the meal was outstanding. However I would insist on being moved to another table should this occur again. There was no reason not to have moved us but it was not done. A poor choice on management’s part.

My wife’s Boston Butter salad was excellent as was her Linguine and Cockles. My Beef Carpaccio and Ossobuco special were solid but not great. Service was good.

Absolutely love La Locanda for any day of the week but this time I was celebrating a special birthday and as always they exceeded expectations. Erica my waitress was wonderful as always and the soft shell crabs were cooked to perfection - also as always! Desserts were divine - I just recommend they go back to one big cannoli vs. three little ones as the filling generally overflows in the larger size. But the tiramisu was perfect! This restaurant never disappoints and is always busy even at 5pm on a Wednesday in the summer. Kudos to them!

We have gone to LaLocanda many, many times...it is one of our very favorite places.

If you like Italian food...no...let me take that back...if you like food, LaLocanda is second to none.

Their artichoke hearts in lemon sauce is enough to make you leave the house.

I am a vegan and so I am the problem eater...they take care of me with no fuss.

We have taken people there many, many, many times. One of those times was my brother and my sister-in-law. Brother is very discriminating when it comes to restaurants and he was overwhelmed.

Good place...nope...great place.

Grazie LaLocaonda!

7:15 Sunday evening. We both enjoyed the gazpacho. Shared a Caesar salad which was good. Wife’s veal parmigiana with pasta was good. My stuffed trout was okay, not exceptional. Attentive waiter.

Our server was more concerned with how my husband pronounced the menu items than telling us about the specials (which he never did) or bringing us oil for our bread (which he never offered) or bringing my
Mother’s extra cocktail sauce for her shrimp (which only came long after my mother finished her meal and after asking twice). It was pretty mediocre food and lousy service. This place is long past its prime and there are much better dining options available. Don’t waste your time or your money.

Food outstanding, noise level tolerable, service slow. When we gave our waiter our credit card, it took 20 minutes for him to come back and tell us it wouldn’t go through. We gave him another card and another 20 minutes later he came back and said their card machine was broken, we could pay with cash or check fortunately we had enough cash to pay. Glad we didn’t have important clients with us!!
