We have driven past this place for about 8!years, threat Ning to go for Dinner so finally made the decision to go and what a brilliant decision. Staff, owners, decor, food and atmosphere were all perfect so will definitely be back: try the Amlafi Beer it is exceptional....as is the Smoked Tuna, Fish Stew and the Focaccia. 10/10. Well done...

When I first visited La Locanda, I was delighted to find that I hardly recognised anything on the menu. I am a 'food traveller' and couldn't believe that Italian restaurants in this country served up little other than pizza and limited pasta dishes with steak and scampi thrown in for the more conservative tastes. What La Locanda offers is a... More

This is my second visit, with quite a gap between visits. We had the set menu, and it really was excellent value, accompanied by a very reasonably price bottle of red. The restaurant is rustic, but not crammed in, and I didn't feel rushed in any way. I have noted some of the comments about rudeness - i didn't feel... More

Very very expensive, portions too little and when asked for a sauce argued with that it was not Italian. We do not mind paying for quality but feel this restaurant very overrated and expensive.Just doing review now and submitted a positive review of another place in Gisburn and remembered this extremely expensive and negative experience.

As ever delicious food . Excellent value 6 course menu (3 real courses) for £30. Sicilian red prawns to start. Delicious sweet prawns. Lamb chops for main, perhaps not the finest but tasty and well cooked. Nice ice cream sundae, albeit very sweet for dessert. You will get the best from the a la carte but this was very nice.

Called for Lunch today but I have been here for dinner twice before, unfortunately only two table in and it lacked a little atmosphere and parking is a problem, I did park opposite but the only way to get to the other side is to be born there. We had a mixture of starters, Antipasto, Bresaola, Bruschetta and some crisp... More
