Every time we vist relatives here we dine at this restaurant. The food is always first class. We had lunch on arrival and enjoyed every bite. We started with a mixed mushroom antipasto. Perfect with just the right amount of spice from the chilis. Then candela pasta with 'nduja. Delicious. We ended with cheese - cacciocavallo, grilled and served with... More

This is a gastronomic delight. Our lunch started with a medley of perfectly cooked mushrooms with just the right amount heat. Then candela pasta with 'nduja, the dish was out of this world. We finished with three cheeses , cacciocavallo grilled with green tomato mostardo, ricotta with spicey mostardo and pecorino with Apple confit. All with a local wine at... More

We had eaten here several years ago and returned in 2014 with good friends. Both times the family served evermore delicious antipasti, pasta, contorni, formaggi, dolci, and digestivi which tempted us to indulge. We actually waddled to the car! Each course was better than the last. The wine selection was superb. The home made digestivi memorable. I intend to return... More

We decided to drive to Puglia via Castrovillari to have another dinner at Locanda di Alia, but not to stay there again. Dinner was very good, but not extraordinary. Our host was welcoming.

Tasty, if a bit fussy, and not for big eaters. Dishes are beautifully presented but seem costly in comparison to other local places

In late September this year, we were part of a small group of seven Australians travelling through Southern Italy. We have been travelling together on an annual basis for the past nine years. We found "La Locanda" a delight. The food and service was impeccable and at a reasonable tariff, ----- and the complimentary series of local spirits proved to... More

Finding such a superb meal in a formerly unknown corner of Italy (for us) was a true delight! This was one of the two best meals we had in 15 days in Italy, and was considerably better than some that were much more reputed and expensive. Our waiter was gracious, had a terrific sense of humor and joie de vivre,... More

We returned to Locanda di Alia, after having stumbled upon it the first time six years ago. We stayed for two nights. It did not disappoint in having two more exquisite dinners at the restaurant. We would travel here again just to experience another wonderful meal, really the best in Italy. We did not order but let our wonderful waiter... More

It is well worth your time to include this destination when traveling in Italy. You will stay at a locanda where thought and design were considered in every aspect. Interesting furniture and art work. Even the dinnerware and glasses reflect the extraordinary taste of the owners. Then there is the food. This is a wonderful dining experience. Each dish is...
