I was lucky to dine at La Locanda multiple times during my stay in Costa Rica and each time it was perfect. The Jordanian/Lebanese couple that own the restaurant could not be any nicer, and the restaurant itself is a lovely dark wood with tables...inside and outside in a great shaded garden. The food was delicious including great wood oven pizzas made fast and fresh. Can't wait to come back again!More

We had humus to start with and then pizza. A bit strange combo, but both delicious. They serve the humus with a hot, fresh-baked, large pita fresh out of the stone oven. That really made ordering "plain-ol-humus" sorta special, and really tasty. The pizza (mozzarella...and prociutto) was excellent. I lived in Italy for several years and can confidently say that it is an authentic, stone oven baked, Italian pizza. The price wasn't bad. I definitely recommend La Locanda.More

The restaurant is horrible. They advertise a handmade pasta seafood dish. In reality the pasta is out of a box, the clams a can and no shrimp! When the owner was old there was no shrimp n the dish he brought the young cook over...and asked him if there was shrimp in the dish. He said no. The food was brought to the table by a waitress who was on her first day on the job. She brought to specials even thought we had only ordered one in Spanish. The owner asked if a free beer would make up for our troubles, which we declined. He then became belligerent. This place should be off everyone's list, as there are much better restaurant s in the area, that are cheaper.More

Last week unfortunately we had a bad experience at La Locanda. Two cats all the time circling on the chairs, on the tables (without guests) and on the floor between our legs ! Owner in a bad mood; Waitress (unless mistakenly, her name is Melinda)...visibly overwhelmed. But she tried to be kind. We didn’t see anyone else working at the main seating area. Food ok, nothing special. Our Salad was very seasoned and salty. Warm, uncomfortable environment. I do not recommend!More

Warning, this is not the previous owner who ran a great restaurant. 1. Owners let cats overrun the place. Had to move a cat off chair just to sit down. Should have left at that point. Then there was one small cat fight in middle...of the restaurant with the loser bolting through the screen of the patio to the outside. Later on the table that left, we watched the cats get up on the table and forage for food. Very unsanitary. Also no hand towels in bathrooms. Just shows a pattern of uncleanliness. 2. Pizza was edible but the worst in the area, almost no ingredients on top except a big cap of low grade undercooked cheese. Seriously, if there was 2 oz total ingredients on my 2 item pizza I’d be surprised. 3. Lastly upon looking at my bill I noticed that they charged me for tap water 500C. Are you kidding me. Previous owner wouldn’t serve tap water since they were on a bad well. The main seating area was always open air but is now totally screened in which makes it very stuffy and uncomfortable now. I’m sure the owner will say it was to keep bugs away but the screens are ripped all over the place from the cats clawing through. Didn’t bother saying a word after reading the posts from the owners about how people only complain to get something free. I’ve been dining at this location for 10 years when it was both Tubla and the original La Laconda. Good luck with that attitude. However the waitress was very nice, just overworked. She gets a five!More

Worse service ever! despite the poor efforts of our waitress to get orders right everything was a mistake after mistake, we had to ask 5 times for a sweet tea, they ran out of ingredients for pizza and let us know after almost an hour...of waiting, only ONE pizza out of five was prepared correctly, appetizers came at last, they charge you for the water from the tab, and the owner, instead of recognize and try to compensate the poor service was a sack of excuses and defiant treatment, it was certainly our first and last visit to this place.More
