We held our engagement party here and we had the greatest time. The setting was intimate and perfect for our 60 guests. The food was lovely and service was greatly enjoyed! Highly recommended.
Alanna Radovanovic - 7/04/2016
We organised our a client dinner her late last month, and our experience was faultless. We used both Private Dining area's, having drinks on arrival in the Deli, and dinner to following the larger dining room. The space has a lovely atmosphere and the staff had a very high attention to detail. Would definitely recommend Locanda for any occasion and we will certainly be returning.
