Great food!

Been here numerous times throughout the past few years and it has always been the same. The food is probably more American Italian than traditional Italian and it's always a little on the greasy side (do not come here when on a diet!), but still, the food is very good, extremely tasty and... read more

My friends and I went as a big group (13) and had a fantastic evening. It was relatively quiet when we arrived but the restaurant was well set up and had a quaint atmosphere. The food was of such a high quality in every meal. All food was freshly cooked and hot, considering we all ordered different meals and hadn't... More

I've been here twice now with my husband. Both thimes the food was amazing. The service is exceptional. The same girl served us both times and she's lovely. She manages to make you feel welcome at the same time as giving you your privacy. The food is really good and proportioned well. My husband had the spinach balls and he... More

We are from Sheffield and visited this restaurant for the first time after our last time 25 years ago. Different owners who are very polite and helpful and excellent food,tasty, and beautifully cooked. It's so nice to be served in a lovely little restaurant rather than the buffet restaurants that are popping up all over the place. Thankyou for a... More

I took my family down to La Gondola and it was amazing. I had never attempted Italian food, so there was always going anxiousness at the first bite. Extremely polite staff were waiting at the door for our arrival as I had pre booked a table for 10 at La Gondola. I had ordered pizza's mainly and the chef sent... More

Went for a pre-concert meal on 27th of April 2015 before visiting City Hall, the young Lady who serviced us was very nice, but that is all we can say about it, the food wasn't great, left the main meal, people on the next table were also unhappy. Maybe just visited on a bad day, but not at all impressed

We went as a party of 5. We were welcomed warmly and menus & drinks came to us quickly. I opted for the salmon and prawns (as did my daughter) which were lovely and fresh. Hubby opted for the whitebait which he said was delicious. Garnish was quite dated but it is an old style Italian. I can't remember what... More

We had a really nice meal here, very good Italian food. The only thing that wasn't great was that it was quite cold inside. We visited in winter and the heating had not been on before opening so it took a long while to warm up. Great staff and traditional Italian food.

Enjoyed a pre-concert meal here before venturing to the City Hall to see Blue on Easter Sunday. Food was lovely, couldn't fault any of it. Service was quick and accommodated a couple of fussy eaters (me being included). Deco is a little outdated but clean. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone who loves Italian food.

This is a relatively small Italian restaurant in the city centre. It was quiet on the day and time we went. Food came our quickly but there was nothing really special about it, I would say average at best. Service was also OK but nothing special. Would I be back? Probably not in a hurry as there are a lot... More
