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.
Pleasant environment, excellent and very friendly service and very-very delicious food at a reasonable price. What else could we expect? We would surely visit again.
Came here as a family with two kids on the recommendation of some friends and wasn't left disappointed. Was easy to park on the streets nearby. The restaurant wasn't that busy and so we didn't feel rushed. The food-pizzas, pasta and vegetarian options was great. Good selection of wines and spirits, San Miguel on draft. Would also highly recommend the restaurant and will be back the next time I come to Birmingham.
Had a great night. Very friendly service food was great. Cocktails amazing. Will definitely be going again. Nice to see an authentic Italian. Highly recommend 5*
