Any thoughts on La Locanda in Edgemont?

  • 8

Anyone ever eaten at La Locanda in Edgemont? I'm looking for someplace to host a luncheon. We would have to eat ala carte, not in a private room since none is available on the day I need. I've never eaten there, but the location is good which is why I'm considering it. We will be a party of adults and children. Is the food decent?? Thanks!

  1. You said ever so I'll respond. I ate there probably 4 years ago and I actually remember it because I thought the food (at least at that time) was very good. The only reason I haven't been back is I don't get down that way any more. If I remember correctly it was run by a 1st gereation Italian family.

    1. I have not eaten there in years but the food was quite good ,

      1. Me too, last time I was there was probably 6 years ago but I remember it being good. Teikoku is also near there, the food may not appeal to everyone in your group (it's sushi and japanese style) but last time I was there (maybe 4 years ago) it was excellent.

        1. Thanks for your replies! Hopefully the food is as good as it was years ago!

          1. It's still very good. Family friendly and always consistent

            1. Oh, boy. Here I go again. P*ssing on the parade. But I really can't help myself. Two questions. No, make that three.
              1) Do the waitresses still call you "hon"?
              2) Does the "Caesar Salad", yes it's in quotes for a reason, still have canned black olives in it?
              3) Is the iced tea still Liptons, straight out of the jar?
              Perhaps you can all understand why I haven't been back there in years cuz when I went the answer to all three questions was a resounding "yes".
              I do second Buckethead's nomination for Teikoku. Very good, very fresh sushi and their Pad Thai is excellent. IMHO a much better option than "La Loc. . ." can't bring myself to finish the name for fear of typing something else.

                Rondo, I second your report. Unfortunately there are not a lot of restaurants around the area so La Loc... may look good. I was there not too long ago and if I would have been blindfolded I swear I was eating Chef Boyardee meatballs. The whole dinner was very unimpressive. Never went back.

                  I got the to-go pizza from La Locanda II and it was really overpriced and not that great. Also, a friend of mine worked at La Locanda and wouldn't recommend it...
