I thought the cocktails were a little over priced, but other than that it was fantastic.
La Banca was amazing! They food was fantastic and the staff was so kind and they even surprised us with a birthday tiramisu and champagne for my husbands birthday. We can’t wait to go back
Overall the food we ordered was delicious. We particularly liked their vegetables, especially the cauliflower gratin. The place is lovely and the service great but what was most important to us is the live music’
First time dining here. Thorsten provided attentive and pleasant service. The duck and pasta Bolognese were perfectly executed, and the cheese board was a wonderful selection. Excellent drinks and atmosphere. Covid protocols in place. Live music added an extra something to our date night. We will be back to check out other menu selections and have already told friends! Worth thr 30 minute drive from Dover.
Great addition to Middletown!!
Shannon was very attentive and our meals were delicious
Very good food and great ambiance. Building was a bank and now the restaurant. Next time we would request upstairs.
We Dined with another Couple on Saturday night. The atmosphere was beautiful and the Service was Excellent. When our Entree's arrived everyone enjoyed theirs except one was cold in the middle. They were very gracious in preparing a new one, however when the Entrée arrived it was half the size of the original. Also, The Wine pours are not generous considering the Wine is $9.00 per glass. Most Restaurants pour Wine to up to the bottom of their Logo. The pour I received appeared to be 3 oz. at the most !! If they improved the amount of Wine per Glass, I would give them a 5 Star Rating !!
Would definitely go back again as the Entrees were very good and hope they are more generous with the amount of Wine served !!
Fabulous!!!!! It great having an upscale restaurant in town .
The live music was really nice! Added a nice unexpected touch to the dining experience!
Great food suggestions from the waiter!!!
Great! Never a disappointment.
We love La Banca and Shannon. We will be back!
This was our first time at La Banca. It will NOT be our last. The food was delicious! The service was great! The atmosphere was perfect!! Adding this as one of our favorite finds in DE!
Good food. Good service. Expensive. I would definitely visit again.
So glad we finally tried. The meal was excellent! Our waiter was fantastic, attentive and helpful but relaxed and didnt crowd us either. Will definitely be heading back.
We kept driving by this restaurant and saying we needed to check it out. We finally decided to do so and were very pleased. We felt comfortable in regards to current Covid restrictions. The food was absolutely amazing. The drinks were great as well. We had such friendly and great service. Loved the ambience of the place. Great place for a first date or just a date night. We will definitely go there again.
Great atmosphere, good food and drink menu! Highly recommend.
Very nice, enjoyed the difference in the menu my boyfriend did care for the lack of non foodie food available. Hopefully they can add maybe a French Dip sandwich or upscale burger with Cobi Beef so I can come again.😉
I think La Banca had an off night. We've been here several times and the food is always outstanding. Last night, not so much. Shrimp appetizer was good, and you get 4 and not some odd number, so it is shareable. We had to ask for more olive juice for our dirty martinis. Fortunately I ordered the pumpkin tortellini with crab meat because it sounded great. It was good, but I didn't taste even a hint of pumpkin. I get the filet here all the time, and it is usually delicious. The first ones they brought out were medium-well rather than the medium-rare that I ordered, and my friend's medium was also overcooked. The second ones were literally raw. Not even rare yet. I gave up after that. Good thing I got that tortellini, or I would have left hungry. Management did an exceptional job trying to make it right, and gave us 2 to go entrees. Service is friendly and professional. La Banca is one of the only fine dining places in Middletown, and I really like the atmosphere.
Had a really nice time. Food was really good. I really appreciated the covid virus precautions that were taken.
The service was excellent , however I would recommend that when a server is asked for a wine selection , “ I’m not familiar with red wines, however I’ll ask the bar . “ I hate red wines “ is not exactly an acceptable response .
Delicious food and attentive staff. Highly recommend. The ricotta gnocchi is amazing!!
They accommodated our outdoor dining request and made sure we were warm enough with our own heater. Chef knows what he is doing!! Delicious food and drink and homemade gelato. Wonderful to have such a sophisticated yet casual place in Middletown.
The food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice. The old bank building was interesting to see and that there is history to the building and the town. There was also a man singing Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra which was fun.
Good food and nice atmosphere. Love the "vault" and the main staircase.
La Banca has a great menu with nice variety. Everything we tried was amazing. Will be returning soon. Highly recommended.
Nice atmosphere and excellent service! Food was very good- although small portions when you think of Italian.
The overall experience was great!! Food and Service was a plus!! The history in the building added to the charm. Would defiantly recommend!!!
We dine here often. Love La Banca! Saturday night was upsetting. Brought old friends there after bragging about it. Got seated at our table. We’re given bread and oil. No plates no napkins. Never saw a server till we asked for one 35 minutes later. Still had no drinks. Finally got our drinks and ordered right away. One pizza came out raw. Sent it back. Not with our server couldn’t find her. Waited at least a half hour for pizza to come back out. The rest of we’re done eating. Needless to say we didn’t stay for coffee and dessert. Asked for our check. Then she disappeared again. I got up and took bill to bar to pay.
This will not keep us away we love the food and the atmosphere! We will just make sure she doesn’t wait on us again.
The food is exquisite. Almost everything made in house from scratch. Great atmosphere and service. Middletown finally has fine dining!
Absolutely love this restaurant. The food and drinks are fantastic. They have live music sometimes which is nice.
Exceeded our expectations! Great food and presentation. We will be back...
We have been to La Banca several times. Every time the service has been wonderful. The place is beautiful and relaxing. Never rushed. The foods is fantastic! The pizza’s are unbelievably great. The pasta dishes are unbelievable. Highly recommended La Banca.
My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent.
I'd been wanting to try this restaurant for a while now. It was a nice dinner ,but a little on the pricey side and wasn't that impressed with the menu. We had a good time ,but waiters were actually too in our face. Didn't allow us much time to relax and enjoy dinner.
There were plenty of tables available so it wasn't like they were needing the space. We have tried it now ,but probably won't return. A little disappointing overall. The background music was nice ,but too loud to be able to have a conversation. :(
Awesome flavor and presentation. High quality and excellent taste.
Our server was new but he did a great job. The heirloom tomato appetizer was excellent. All around it was a nice date night.
