It’s not very often that you walk into a restaurant and instantly feel like you’ve been transported someplace new. The restaurant in particular is Locanda at the new exceptionally trendy Villa 47 complex, soon to be everyone’s place-to-be.
Three days in and the place was packed, having to deny people a sacred seat when they entered without a booking. One woman looked like she might throw a tantrum when turned away, and it started feeling like I was in some plush Manhattan eatery I’ve only read about online – and I didn’t mind at all.
The service matched this as well, always one step ahead and very friendly. Our waiter Dane was eager to help us, and he mirrored the air of excitement that surrounded him.
