Service was extremely slow, booked for 6 o'clock and didn't get desert (2 course meal) until 7.10. Had to eat rushed to get to the theatre. Both first wines that I tried must have been opened for days. I have been here before, but after last nights experience I would not recommend this restaurant.

We had pre theatre dinner, and found the food to be delicious and the portion sizes were very generous. The price was fantastic ,will definitely return for dinner on our next show.

We went for a pre theatre meal which they advertise. the service was fantastic but the kitchen was overwhelmed so the food took a long time to come which meant that you couldn't do the advertised 2 courses. food was good without being great

Pre Dinner booking was booked on Dimmi but the restaurant did not get the booking. So we had to wait 20 minutes for the head waiter to organise the table. But the service and food was excellent.

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
