This chic Roman-style osteria packs in the hipsters with a lively scene, killer cocktails and inspired pastas, like radiatore tossed in tomato-lamb ragù with pecorino and hints of fresh mint. Hearty main courses might include smoky and tender pancetta-wrapped chicken served over nutty farro verde. None of this is surprising, considering Locanda is from the team behind Mission favorite, Delfina. Reservations here are a tough ticket, but the attire and vibe are casual and welcoming (if noisy). Can’t get a table? Seats at the bar, where the full menu is served, are a solid backup. Locanda's ultra-central address makes parking a challenge, so plan on using the valet or allotting extra time.
