Locale is our favorite Italian restaurant in the area! We love coming here whether with friends or just me and my wife and relaxing after a long day. The atmosphere inside with the fireplace and white table cloths is upscale but friendly and the outside patio in the summer with the waterfall at the back of the patio is the... More

Food is fantastic. The wait staff is very cordial and awesome. I recommend this place to everyone. It's nice to sit outside when the wealthier is nice.

Came here with my family. Has a nice outside seating area but we ate inside. Service was very good. Has the pork chop special. Very tasty and moist. Salads were good as well. Place is a bit pricey.

We tried Locale for our Anniversary dinner. What a beautiful setting! The food and service were wonderful! They also have a price fix and it was amazing - great food and great value! We can't wait to go back!

You can never re-do a first impression. This one? DISASTER. As a preface, I'm used to NYC restaurants where you can expect elevated service from courteous professionals. Well, I had passed by Locale a whole bunch of times while in the area and thought: "This looks nice- let me peek at the menu." So, on a Friday around 4pm, I... More

Still making up my mind here on how I would rate this experience. The shrimp avocado salad was fresh , the tortufo was good as well as were a couple of pasta dishes but all the additional items that were ordered during the business lunch - wine, tea, coffee etc inflated the final bill a bit too much where one...
