This tiny Italian spot has been a well-kept secret for nearly a decade, thanks almost entirely to their location on a nondescript stretch of Lincoln Blvd. But as soon as you step inside, you’ll forget there’s a car wash next door. From the Fiat-sized bar, stocked with Italian aperitivos and wines, to the low-lit dining room, Locanda is ideal for an intimate meal, and the menu is filled with pastas that are perfect for sharing. Our favorites include the pappardelle with braised wild boar, and the ravioli in a rich truffle sauce, but if you need guidance, the gregarious owner is more than ready to help - and more than willing to pour you another glass of wine, too.
