Locanda Review

The owners of Delfina, Annie, and Craig Stoll have given the city another culinary gift. This time her name is Locanda; and the menu is Roman inspired. A dangerously addictive starter is pizza bianca: chewy, hot bread that holds mini puddles of olive oil and is sprinkled with sea salt. It's hard to decide on a pasta with so many represented on the menu. One of the signature pastas, tonnarelli cacio e pepe, is a creamy, peppery smack of flavor. But the best route is doubling down on pastas and antipasti, then sharing a main, like the lamb scottadito, seasoned with anchovies and coriander. Finely made cocktails (Negroni flights even) arrive at dark-wood tables on a candlelit tray, and white Heath wall tiles pump up the sophisticated interior. It's a busy place with bar stools occupied steadily, and the communal table filling quickly to get a taste of this Italian-accented cuisine.
