My wife wanted to change some of the ingredients in her pasta dish, not a problem, chilli and olives added, no "I'll have to check... read more

In the gastronomic desert of Sheffield I ended up in this restaurant. The restaurant is ok, nothing fancy, a classic trattoria you would find in the center of Italy. The starter was disappointing: fried calamari. The fried part was like 2mm thick! Too much! I was scared at that point but the Filetto Rossini was very good! And the grilled... More

Ate here before going to a show at the Lyceum Theatre having walked past many chain restaurants when we wanted food with that home cooked taste - it turned out to be a great choice. It's a small unassuming restaurant with no frills as other reviewers have mentioned - that for me is often a sign off good cooking so... More

A great authentic restaurant in the heart of the city. Ideal for visiting after seeing a show at the city hall. Try the fillet la gondola, so nice!

We had not booked on valentines night but was not to bothered. We tried a couple of places we walked past. My wife saw this place, I thought well lets try it. We got a table but only have 1.5 hours to eat as after it was fully booked. The waitress was very good, another even came and talked to... More

Me and my partner decided to visit La Gondola for our anniversary and were NOT disappointed! The food and wine were absolutely amazing! My partner said the carbonara was better than when she had eaten in Rome! The service was great, the dark haired waitress who served us was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. The atmosphere was just how we... More

Very friendly staff and great service. Good effort in making delicious foods and dessert in company with matching wine recommendations. Cosy atmosphere and underestimated from the outside. Will return.

We were looking for somewhere to eat prior to going to the theatre. I am not keen on "chains" so found this place on TA which sounded good. We were not disappointed by the food which was very good. I had the lasagne which was excellent. Any downside? We went in about 6 pm and there was only one other... More

So we ventured of in the snow and after a good 15... More
