Had a wonderful Mother's Day brunch today. After leaving Newtown Grill from a bad experience (see my full review), La Locanda saved us from disaster. Our entire party was seated quickly and the service was excellent. The food was superb especially the Lobster Bisque soup and Fritata special. We were not rushed and the atmosphere was relaxing. I would highly recommend visiting. We even met the owner who wanted to ensure we had a great dining experience.

From Business: Since its founding in Orlando in 1982, Olive Garden has been dedicated to providing a warm, welcoming dining experience and Italian hospitality to everyone who walk…
I'm originally from northern New Jersey where there are great italian restaurants everywhere. Since moving to central pa, we searched for good restaurants. In this area there are two great places. Rillo's in Carlisle and Gabriella,s in Harrisburg. I can not decide which is the best of the two, but with out a doubt, Gabriella's has excellent pasta and seafood (great oysters on the halfshell). My wife and I alternate between the two places.
The "Chicken under a brick" or something like that was amazing. I loved it and have gone back several times. If you don't eat carbs like I don't then this is the most perfect and well prepared dish for this kind of restaurant. The ambiance is great with the exception of the sound of a fan blowing out of the fire pit. We also sit at the bar but you have to avoid those seats near the fan. It is like a tornado with vibrations and all.
