Time Out says:

If you’ve been in Williamsburg since before it was cool, you’ve probably known about La Locanda for a while. But even if you just got off the hipster boat, Cono Colombo will happily welcome you to his bright, no-nonsense restaurant. Try the shrimp oreganate special: fresh shrimp coated in herbs and bread crumbs, then broiled and served sizzling over linguine in olive oil and garlic. Such simple pleasures—including the laughably small bill at the end of your meal—are plentiful at La Locanda.

The Village Voice says:

That a non-hipster restaurant can still open in Williamsburg is a shock. This nonconformist, decorated in Jersey Suburban, was founded by descendants of immigrants from the Italian town of Teggiano. Though the house tomato sauce is somewhat bland, there are many admirable nonna (“grandma-style”) dishes, including an eggplant rollatini oozing good ricotta, deliciously plain escarole and beans, and spectacular linguine with broccoli rabe and garlic, a special some days. After dinner, hop across the street to enjoy the coffee and killer cannoli at Caff? Capri.
