Locanda Locatelli is one of the finest Michelin-starred Italian restaurants in London, owned by Giorgio Locatelli, noted as much for its conviviality as the quality of its food.

Born into a cooking dynasty in Corgeno on the shores of Lake Comabbio in Northern Italy, Giorgio Locatelli is considered by many to be one of the finest Italian chefs in the UK and the world. At Locanda Locatelli, Giorgio serves traditional Italian dishes, emphasising the quality and freshness of the produce as well as adding his own creative touch

“For us the sign of welcome is to feed people. At the heart of all cooking, whether you are rich or poor, is the spirit of conviviality, the pleasure that comes from sharing a meal with others. And there is no enjoyment of food without quality.”

    Entrée with bread and olive oil was an expected touch of quality. Antipasto good, premium ingredients but nothing fancy. Mai course: I had high expectations but I was not disappointed! Lowlight: dessert. Tiramisù with cream? Big no. If you are not interested in the desert, it’s definitely a place to go.

    Probably we had higher expectations, unfortunately disregarded. The food quality was very good but the taste was poor. It does not seem a Michelin star restaurant. The restaurant is very noisy.

    Everything was perfect. We had dinner to celebrate our 18th anniversary. The food was nice and the friendly yet attentive service made us feel very comfortable. The price was reasonable and the list of wines has a good variety. We’ll be back again to try the other dishes.

    The service was exceptional, friendly and professional. We had a lovely waitress who made us feel very welcome and comfortable. However I found the food underwhelming. Not much flavour and our vegetables really salty to the point of not being able to eat them. Not what I expected sadly. We did still have a lovely evening. Not sure if I personally would recommend it to others but I’m glad I went there myself.

    Brilliant evening, all staff at their best however no proper area when you first walk in and want to have a drink by the bar, may be sofas instead of the small dining tables right in front of the bar ?

    Have been wanting to come here for a while. Food was great, generous portions and high quality, although overall service wasn’t on point for a restaurant of this quality. My wife’s champagne too am age to arrive. Not served our wine, had to chase it and half a bottle left in chiller at end of meal - had to ask for a spoon for my main etc etc Felt like a hotel restaurant not a high quality restaurant

    Nice interior, friendly staff. Food came too quick. No ‘amuse’ at all except for a breadstick. In one hour we were ready to check out… Food was ok but not one star level. Impressive wine list, prices at least times 3

    Locanda Locatelli offers a dining experience that's nothing short of exceptional. The food is exquisite, with generous portions and impeccable quality that tantalize the taste buds. The service is quick, kind, and attentive, adding to the overall warmth of the atmosphere.

    This is the second time we had dinner at Locanda Locatelli but, surprisingly, this time it's been very disappointing... On three main courses (pasta), all of them lacked salt and were a bit tasteless as we couldn't taste all the ingredients named on the menu. The worst part, though, was the risotto which was definitely raw (not "al dente"). For a Michelin Star, we'd expect much more to be honest... Not worth the visit.

    Tappa imperdibile per i fan di Masterchef! Considerato poi che si tratta di un ristorante stellato al centro di Londra, si spende anche meno di quanto ci si possa aspettare. Piatti deliziosi ovviamente!

    Visto il nome e la fama, ci aspettavamo un ristorante all’altezza, forse arrivando dall’Italia le aspettative erano troppo alte. Cibo normale, come si puó trovare in un qualunque ristorante medio italiano. Impiattamento normale, quasi da “trattoria”. Unica portata all’altezza del ristorante, sia per la vista che per il palato, è stato il dolce. Personale gentile e disponibile, locale d’altri tempi, luci soffuse, poltrone e divanetti di pelle bianca consumati. Unico punto all’altezza di un ristorante di lusso, il prezzo. La speranza di incontrare almeno lo chef per un saluto, vana. In generale, nella media.

    Ambient , accoglienza servizio e assistenza sia sul posto che per la prenotazione e relative modifiche ECCELLENTI . Mi aspettavo decisamente di più dai piatti che erano buoni ma non eccellenti come nelle mie aspettative , antipasti abbastanza buoni, primi sotto la media, calamarata non un granché pasta troppo al dente se non cruda , risotto al barolo e castelmagno asciuttissimo e indietro di cottura ( risotto a base di formaggio lo preferisco cremoso )! Il riscatto però è arrivato con i dolci , bellissimi e buonissimi, raramente ne ho trovati di così buoni ! dolci ECCELLENTI . Un plauso alla manager , capace gentile e attenta .

    I have been to locanda locatelli for a few times until 2019. It was always great. Yesterday evening, the restaurant completely lose my interest. The services and wine are still great but the food was utterly unacceptable. Linguine lobster wasn’t the same. Some dishes were overcooked and some undercooked.

    Ambiente elegante e curato, atmosfera piacevole non troppo rumorosa. Personale attento e preparato come si conviene ad uno stellato. Ottimo anche il supporto per la scelta dei vini . Un paio di note dolenti ma probabilmente le aspettative alte hanno influenzato la sensibilità ai difetti.. Carpaccio di orata preparato in modo sontuoso e tecnicamente ineccepibile.. purtroppo però la pastinaca andava a scontrarsi frontalmente con la delicatezza del pesce uccidendone le preziose sfumature donate dalla meticolosa ( e coreografica ) preparazione.. insalata di piedino di vitello e mostarda.. semplicemente perfetta per bilanciamento e freschezza. Passiamo ai primi con l'altra nota dolente.. linguine all'astice.. ahimè praticamente insapori molto al di sotto dell'aspettativa.. non ripeterei. Paglia e fieno gratinate decisamente gustose , un piatto ben realizzato e dalle generose proporzioni anche nella versione più piccola.. Sgombro alla griglia in crosta di erbe.. preparato magistralmente, delicato e potente .. guancia di manzo brasata al Biferno e cacao .. un'opera d'arte.. la carne di una qualità incredibile e la preparazione ne ha amplificato ogni sfumatura. Dolci .. Torta strudel con gelato alla cannella.. illegale .. sublime.. Cannoli marmellata di arance e gelato al pistacchio.. medesima valutazione. Cocktail , Vino.. e Te ed infusi .. perfetti.

    The experience was not value for money. Although we changed 2 tables both were wobbly and even though we let the staff know it was not fixed. The food was average. The overall experience did not match what would be expected from a michaelin restaurant.

    They wouldn’t let my guest in as they said they couldn’t find the booking even though I had arrived 10 minutes earlier. I had to go and rescue him. No apology given. Wait between courses extremely slow. I had to ask where our food was which when arrived was luke warm. I think they forgot about it. A real disappointing experience.

    Last time that I’ve dined at Locanda was over 15 years ago and I had very fond memories of the ambience and the food Unfortunately this time I’ve not been impressed by the food I thought that pasta is a staple food in Italian cuisine but my dish of expensive linguine with astice didn’t perform to expectations, and I am Italian and I know what it should taste! My partner was also disappointed by the food we recovered with the pudding The ambience is great and the staff very friendly but I don’t think I’ll be visiting the restaurant anytime soon Carmelo & Virginia

    Not as brilliant as expected. Last dined there 7 years ago and it was a real experience. This time the menu wasn’t exceptional, the prices too high (£34 for a plate of pasta with greens??). The pasta lacked salt. The sweets were good though. Overall quite disappointing experience and a hefty bill when no wine was involved. Sorry but fell short of expectation

    Non merita sicuramente una stella michelin! Cibo semplice, abbastanza buono, a parte per i dolci, ma per nulla ciò che ci attendevamo da uno stellato, per non menzionare i prezzi altissimi per la qualità dei piatti. Servizio non al top, personale attento, ma adatto forse ad un locale più semplice come una trattoria che ad uno stellato. Non ci sembra affatto che seguano gli standard del servizio di alta classe... Ambiente rilassato e quasi informale, che ci piace pure, ma non se siamo partiti con l'idea di andare a cena in un ristorante di livello. I nostri standard erano molto alti, forse dovuto al fatto che abbiamo lavorato in vari stellati e siamo tutt'ora del mestiere, ma ne siamo rimasti insoddisfatti. Non ci ritorneremo.
