Exceptional authentic experience. All the staff are Italian which adds to the atmosphere. Charming owner walking the floor, checking in with the guests. The food was fabulous. Delicious mussels, fresh pasta bursting with flavour. Perfect home made puddings. Excellent Italian wine. A slice of heaven....Thank you.More

I booked this last minute for my 20th Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted by friendly staff and given a choice of where to sit. We had an excellent bottle of red wine and the food was delicious. Wil definitely be going back.

My husband phoned, several weeks ago and booked table 14 for a wedding anniversary dinner for last evening. He was assured that our party would be accommodated at table 14 and because on our last visit we were let down, he asked twice for confirmation....We arrived promptly and were told that because table 14 had been made up for 5 and not 4 we couldn't sit there. My husband explained that he had very specifically requested that table to recreate a lovely event and the waiter implied that my husband was lying when he insisted that he had been assured of our booking. He told us that we could not sit at the table of our choice and he didn't appear to care if we sat at the table he offered or left. We spend more than two hours eating and drinking and trying to make the best of our disappointment. When we left the restaurant table 14 was still unoccupied as it had been for the duration of our visit. The food was once again nice but the customer service poor for the second time.More

We often eat in Pomodoro Mozzarella the sister Italian restaurant next door, but this time I wanted somewhere just that little bit extra special to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our family. I chose well, because from start to finish the service and food...were impeccable. Despite the restaurant being full we never at anytime felt neglected or the need to complain about the, service, beautifully presented and quality food. Providing an off menu Gluten Free pizza from next door was handled without a fuss. There is so much choice, that choosing from the extensive menu proved difficult at times. But rest assured whatever you choose it will be excellent and to a very high standard. If you are looking for a quality Italian restaurant, nicely furnished with crisp fresh clean table linen, old fashioned service, comfortable seating with reasonable prices, look no further. Thank you La Locanda Del Duca for a lovely evening.More

Our first visit since lockdown ended and some trepidation would it be so good. Well even better I think. Staff are so very cheerful and helpful and the boss pops round to make sure all is well. The food is probably the very best Italian...I have had outside of Italy and even then it remains one of the very greats. Atmosphere is relaxed and the environment cool with calming colours. My starter of white bait was cooked to perfection as were the scallops with Italian ham. For mains we both had the liver flavour and tenderness was remarkable. Vegetables perfectly cooked. For desert we had the vanilla custard tart superb. A memorable meal. Thank you.More

Had a exceptional meal in this relaxed and friendly restaurant, the host was very attentive and all the food was cooked to perfection. I would recommend the filet steak as it was tender juicy and cooked to a perfect medium rare. If you only have...1 night out in Eastbourne you must eat here.More

We were lucky enough to be able to book a table at the last minute at La Locanda Del Duca when visiting Eastbourne. The restaurant was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint on any level. The entertainment was an unexpected bonus (Tom...Fitzpatrick). Highly recommend.More
