One of the many restaurants surrounding Birmingham’s gorgeous Georgian St Paul’s Square in the Jewellery Quarter, Locanta reigns supreme when it comes to Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Inspired by tradition, crafted accorded to contemporary tastes, Locanta offers diners colourful, flavourful food from midday to midnight at its Ludgate Hill premises, spread over two elegantly appointed floors. And, when you book, listen out for Locanta’s regular live music evenings for a perfectly formed Italian dining experience.
Locanta is all about conversation. It’s a place to get together to socialise over great Italian and Mediterranean food, a beautiful venue spread over two floors down Ludgate Hill, close to the action around Birmingham’s St Paul’s Square. It’s also about having a conversation between the traditional and the modern, where classic Italian and Mediterranean values meet contemporary interpretation, showcased on Locanta’s extensive menus in unique recipes. Locanta is, of course (if not first and foremost), about the conversation between the finest food and drink. At this Jewellery Quarter gem, one can slake one’s thirst at the fully-stocked bar – wine, draught and bottled beer, premium tea and coffee – and indulge in a banquet that evokes the essence of the Med.
Whether you choose to dine in Locanta’s intimate downstairs area, or overlooking St Paul’s Square and the Jewellery Quarter upstairs, you’re in for a treat. Locanta is housed in an 18th-century building, once a farmhouse, once a thimble maker’s, and now one of Birmingham’s premier Italian and Mediterranean restaurants. And, whether you’re here for casual dining or a private party or function, the cuisine on offer is set to stun. Curated by head chef Steve Groves and chef Michel Paris Jr., Locanta’s British-sourced and seasonally-influenced fare is designed for sharing. Go for tapas-like platters of chickpeas and chorizo bravas, or heartier chef’s recommendations such as Don Paco’s Chilly Chicken, the swordfish and king prawns, meatballs and aubergine bake. Either way, you’re advised to book early for a spot at this Ludgate Hill restaurant.
Absolutely charming restaurant. Fab interior, attentive staff and good food. Very reasonably priced. Very close to the Jam House jazz club so would recommend eating here then crossing the road to hear some fab music. Win win!
Went with the wife for our anniversary. Lovely romantic restaurant, and fantastic food! Would highly recommend to couples and groups for a good evening out.
Authentic Tapas restaurant nestled in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, good service, great location, excellent value, fantastic range of food on offer, highly recommended!
Great food and very personal service. Well looked after by the staff. Excellent seafood. Will most certainly go back and it didn't break the bank.
The food was delicious and the service was attentive. I would definitely go back to try more of the menu. I always walk past this in the JQ and having been can't understand why it is not busier. Give it a go!
excellent food service and ambience, nothing was too much trouble on arrival the staff knew of our booking and requirements and directed to a quiet table as was requested would recommend to anyone
The restaurant was not ready for guests and we were the only diners there for the whole of our visit. The waitress was trying her best but did not speak much English. We were not offered anything other than their full menu ( even though they advertise a fixed price deal on their website) and even then were not offered any of the desserts on the printed menu. Service was haphazard to say the least. We have eaten here before and had much better value and service. Sad to find things have changed so much.
It was a good experience - there was no rush and we had the entire place almost to ourselves! . Home made pizza was great !
Quiet night but good food and great to catch up with friends in a really nice atmosphere. Would go back again and glad we chose.
We went on a Sunday lunchtime so it was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a tapas menu which was lovely.
