We had a Communion Party here. The food was excellent, red and white wines, a bit of Italy flair. Tastefully decorated as if you were in Italy. Friendly and warm staff. Wonderful Italian food. I have been here many times, never disappointed.

La Locanda always delivered. It is our go to place when we are in Delco. I almost always order the Timballo Di Teramo. I have found this no where else. The Veal Tenderloin is also out of this world good.
