I love this place! When i'm in the mood for Italian food this is where I go to even though it's like 15 miles away.All their food is home -made so it does take a little while to make but it's worth the wait because you know it's all fresh. The chicken salad and garlic knots is my favorite combination of food.

bad bad bad

dinner this evening , ordered the special zucchini stuffed flowers (over fried tiny sad food for 17.00 . egplant mozzarella with pasta .(dish was bland over cook and left on the heat lamp to long , next dish lasagna 21.00 ( over cooked to the point of dry and burnt sent back . Place is far to pricey for the junk the push out of the kitchen . one party was sending dishes back and forth and i donot blame them. This place needs to close , its dirty, disheveled and poor quality . its the old hat place you do not want to go to . had a discussion with manager regarding the evening and he made excuses for everything . And just when i thought it was over i went to the restroom and there was a family of roaches walking out of the kitchen probably leaving for the same reason . Stay away !!!

Excellent food, Great service

I've been here twice for dinner with my wife. The service was great. The wait staff and the manager were very polite and welcoming and took their time to explain the various specials. Good wine recommendations. We ordered entirely different entrees and appetizers during each visit and I can say that on both occassions, the food was excellent! The fish was perfectly cooked and the bolognese sauce with my pasta was superb!

NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE

This place was once a delightful, quaint, top quality place, however, since new management came it has really went down hill. The food was once upon a time very, very good but as of my last two experiences I have found that it lacks the quality, freshness and taste of what it once had... The service staff have changed (and not for the better) as they are quite eager to sell you bottled water but not as eager to keep your glass filled...They seem more interested in the final bill than the diners experience.. Used to be a favorite but no more...

Good service,excellent Italian cusinie!

We had dinner days ago in Locanda, they got 2 busboy and 2 waiters, serving for about 6 tables of patron, they were so attentive and prompt, our water never ran half. So I really can't any clue about the bad service that mentioned in the previous write-up.
We had their ravioli with white truffles and mushrooms sauce, that's exceptional! I would highly recommend anyone to try this.

INCREDIBLE! The Best Staff in Town!

Not only is the food at Locanda unbelievable, but the wait staff and the manager make the dining experience an absolute pleasure. Everyone there goes out of their way to make the diner feel like they are royalty. The menu has wonderful staples like the spaghetti with lentils and the roasted chicken, both of which are delicious. The nightly specials, which are written on a chalkboard include the most amazing filet of sole that I have ever had and a zucchini ""flowers"" appetizer that leave you wanting more. As a regular dinner here, the most impressive thing is the consistency of the food, my favorite dishes are as good as they were the day I first ordered them.

The waiters and bust-boys are respectful and kind. The manager is one of a kind, he is personable and he goes out of his way to make each guest's dining experience the best it can be. I look forward to many more years of great meals at Locanda Veneta.

Overall
awful service full restaurant only one waiter!!

Went to Locanda a few days ago and had awful service..
There was only one waiter and a busboy that seemed to be doing everything.
We had to ask 5 times for our water to be refilled.
Manager stood at the front ordering the busboy around while the waiter ran around like a chicken with his head cut off.
The busboy was too busy taking out the food and bartending to get his attention for more bread and water.
When spending $300 plus on dinner this is just unacceptable. With a full restaurant one waiter and 1/3 busboy is just ridiculous.

New Management is awful

Former Guests!! Locanda Veneta has traded a knowlegable, professional and caring manger for an egotistical, unknowledgable used car salesman.
Fortunately the food is still great!!

Better service at McDonalds...

After hearing great things about this restaurant, I decided to take my girlfriend here for a nice little romantic date. The place was in Entourage, so how bad could it be, right? I called ahead, set a reservation for 7:30PM on a Friday night, and off we went. Within minutes, I realized our romantic date was destined to be anything but...

Upon being seated and having the waiter take our order for soda and carpaccio, he soon disappeared. We then had to ask a busboy for bread, another waiter to take our order and explain to us what the specials were, and yet another waiter for refills. Having to ask to be served three times in the first 15 minutes of dining isn't exactly what I'd call top notch service...

The carpaccio was bland and the main course (steak and pasta with filet mignon) took 30 minutes to arrive. By the end of the night the waiter finally caught on that we weren't exactly thrilled but it was too late.

Avoid at all costs unless you want to pay a premium for average Italian fare (our bill was $111 with no alcohol) and atrocious service.
