More about Locanta, Birmingham

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.
