Mediocre Food and Rude Service

I made this reservation based on the great reviews. There were 8 of us. Initially, the waiter was funny, in sort of a rude, condescending way. Then it was too much! He asked us if we wanted expresso. \r I said, ""Cappuccino"". He said ""EXPRESSO, do you need to spell it?!"" It is very loud. Great for a party and not for any kind of conversation. \r Food was mediocre. Radicchio (Italian BYOB on Wood St.)is 1000 tim... view more

Best BYOB

I live in Old City and will go to La Locanda on occasion. I've had my birthday dinner there two years in a row and LOVED it! Some of my friends want to go back, ""where was your birthday dinner again?"" I've been there on dates and with groups ranging from 4-18 people - all times have been inviting and delicious! I highly recommend the mushroom crepes!

NO ICE and RUSHED SERVICE

I went with a group of friends (party of 8). They had no ice to chill our wine (and keep in mind it's a byob) plus they rushed us to seat the next group despite us making a reservation weeks in advance. Will not go back.

Not as great as everyone said

From the Moment my group of six from out of town walked in we were treated very rudely by our waiter. He was condesinding if not down right rude the entired time he waited on us. He did not commuicate accurately what the dishes were, and so we did not get what we expected. He also dissapeared out on to the street for most of our service to do who knows what, and so the chef was the one who took care of us, when we co... view more

Hands Down, The Best BYO in Philly

La Locanda is my all time favorite BYO in Philadelphia. I have been here easily over a dozen times for everything from dates, to birthday celebrations, to casual dinners out, and every time it is a fabulous experience. The food here is phenomenal, the mushroom crepes are heaven on a plate, and the tiramisu is the best I've ever had. The only thing that tops the food at La Locanda is the staff. They are so friendl... view more

AWESOME!

We had a party of six so they picked our appetizers and it was all done family style. Very good. We all had a meal, something different and then we shared! Again awesome. We shared a few desserts and all had expresso, no plain coffee - of any kind. Bill, including tip was only 260.00 - not bad for ALL the food. Took a taxi back to the hotel.

Excellent food and service!

What a great place! cheap and good plus you feel like you're sitting at your family's house. It's bustling and noisy but that's what makes it so fun!

Stick to the pasta

My husband and I visited the restaurant last night. We had an ok experience. We both had specials and mine was a fish that was breaded sauteed then baked. This cooking resulted in a dry and bready dish that they should really consider taking off the list. My husband had a pork chop that he said was ok, a little overcooked. The highlight of the meal was the homemade ricotta gnocchi. They were light as a feather ... view more

Couldn't ask for a better meal

I went this past Saturday and I have to say this was an amazing experience! My mother and my boyfriend?s parents were meeting for the first time and this was the perfect spot for dinner. I had read other reviews and I wasn?t sure what to expect. I've been to many BYOBs in Philly and I wanted to try something new. First off the food was marvelous. We had the $35 prix fixe menu. Basically you choose an appetizer,... view more
