Not bad, expected the food to be of a higher standard, in line with the price. Beautiful decor.

Delicious food and excellent service.

Great please, great service, great food, pity about the profanity emitting from the bar area. Spoils what can be a really lovely place to go to before the theatre. Apart from that, we had a great night.

Good value if PGR BLACK status & can get 50% off. Steaks $40-$50 otherwise. 500gram rib eye nice but not cooked evenly through (asked for medium, some bits more on rare side). Said this before but would be nice if steaks at least came with one complimentary side.

Excellent service

Service attendants were polite, however, very reactive and slow. Not ideal for a key/corporate lunch with key clients. Food quality good.

Although advertised as an Italian Steakhouse restaurant, I was disappointed with the lack of pasta on the menu.

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
