Add La Locanda Ristorante Italiano & Wine Bar to your Itinerary

The chef stands proudly in the doorway of the restaurant, arms crossed.

Full of original, rustic charm, La Locanda’s owners Maurizio and Cinzia Bocchi will take you to the heart of Italian cuisine, serving you truly authentic recipes that go back generations.

'Our promise is to provide you with a truly authentic Italian meal that gives you a flavour of the culture, heritage, tradition and hospitality of the place we are so proud to call our home.'

You’ll hear time and time again that La Locanda serves the ‘best Italian food outside Italy’. Highly regarded for its commitment to slow food, sourcing the best quality local produce and specialising in pure, authentic Italian cuisine.

La Locanda continue to receive five star reviews, numerous awards and accolades (and is the UK’s most awarded Italian restaurant outside of London). 

The award they are most proud of is the Ospitalità Italiana (La Locanda has been an annual recipient of this award since 2010) – a certification that highlights the best Italian restaurants around the world, those which seek to defend and protect Italian cuisine and preserve its history, culture, quality and authenticity.

La Locanda can also be found in Harden’s Guide
