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.

A great location for pre theatre dinner. The food was very good with generous portions and great value. Wine by the glass was a bit on the expensive side.

The bar menu was what we ended up having as we had been out during the day. The pizza was delicious and it was a busy environment as the Australian Open tennis was on. Good atmosphere.

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
