Food is delicious, friendly service, great value. Highly recommended! Only thing keep in mind is the environment can be a bit noisy, and make sure you have cash because there is a small % credit card surcharge.

Lovely food, but small portions. Great service though. It is a great place to before the theatre.

The restaurant was great but very disappointed in Dimmi as on arrival ther was no record of our booking. Luckily there was several spare tables. Very poor on behalf of Dimmi but great by Locanda that they could accommodate us.

Great location and ambience for a pre-theatre Dinner. Good value 'Set menu' with tasty food. The only minor let down was not getting the glass of wine I ordered to accompany my main course until I was two-thirds of the way through it; and then only after chasing the waiter for it.

Really nice staff who did a great job. Restaurant was very quiet, but we still enjoyed ourselves. Food was very nice and the wine list had a few reliable picks.

About Locanda Restaurant & Bar

Dine inn ‘Locanda’ variously translates from the Italian into English as ‘inn’, ‘pub’ or ‘diner’ depending on the context. Ah ha, we get you. Locanda Italian Steakhouse in the heart of Melbourne is a short walk to a number of theatres so is a favourite inn or pub for pre-theatre dining. Think up-market dining, private rooms, extensive wine cellars, and the best of Australian ingredients with a super chef at the helm, and you have the recipe for Locanda’s success. From the feature elements of floor to ceiling glass wine ‘cellars’, impressive pillars, a ceiling punctuated by acoustic beams, the distinctive mushroom stools and the massive marble bar, Locanda screams style, chic and elegance all at the same time. Then, of course, there is the food. The pre-theatre two or three course menu has some wonderful temptations such as malfaldine (ribbon-shaped pasta) with creamy carbonara sauce and aged Parmesan, or the pumpkin cannelloni with spiced carrot cream, feta cheese and pistachio crumble. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, you also may want to try the extensive a la carte menu when you have more time. Best dish: Dark chocolate and raspberry torte, vanilla custard, and raspberry mascarpone served with candied pistachio
