An award-winning experience in Lancashire

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.
