à la carte menu

Because we like you to enjoy food that’s been created using the freshest produce available, our à la carte menu changes frequently. The selection of dishes you’ll find below is just a snapshot of some we’ve featured on the menu most recently and if you would like to be emailed a full version of our current à la carte menu, please get in touch and we’ll be most happy to email it to you. Or you can view it online here

Since we opened the doors at La Locanda we have prided ourselves on giving you a ‘true taste of Italy’ and our dishes are all freshly cooked to order using traditional techniques and ingredients. Also, although well behaved children are always welcome at La Locanda, you won’t find a ‘children’s menu’ and this is because, in Italy, we like to develop the palates of the bambini early and they would generally enjoy the same food the adults are eating. Please feel free to discuss this with us when you visit La Locanda with your children, as many of the dishes you’ll see on the menu can be cooked in child-friendly portions, and we are also more than happy to prepare simpler pasta dishes, if required. Please Note: We only select the best quality and freshest produce available on the day and, therefore, some dishes on the menu may change without notice.

Allergen Advice: We are able to offer some dishes not using gluten. However, as with all food allergens, our dishes are prepared in areas which allergenic ingredients are present and so we cannot guarantee that dishes are 100% free of these ingredients due to the preparation process.
