Went here for lunch. For Dublin, never mind somewhere situated in Temple Bar, this place had a great lunch menu for a great price. My boyfriend who is a protein fiend was particularly pleased with his chicken wings started as he got quite a lot, compared to most other restaurants you go to. He even got a wee ball of... More

Went in because we liked the look from outside. From the start the staff were welcoming and friendly, the food was fantastic and you can watch the chef at work, all at an affordable price

We'd had enough Guinness and loud, crowded pubs in Temple Bar on the afternoon preceding an important football (soccer) match. We were hungry, and this little restaurant caught our eye. So glad it did! Excellent service, and a delicious, fresh pizza in a pretty setting. HIghly recommend and would seek out on a future trip.

Delicious spaghetti Carbonara - and my wife loved the Bolognese. We arrived tired and hungry after a hard day tramping round the wonderful sights (and sites) of Dublin. This was just what we needed - fresh cooked pasta, tasty sauces, very quick service, and some very good wine from their small but perfect wine list.

After trekking around Dublin for a good few hours we were in need of a little spot to plant ourselves for a rest. La Gondola was perfect. The atmosphere was so relaxed and easy going. The waitress was lovely and provided key recommendations when it came to dessert! The pizza was delicious and the prices not bad at all. Will... More

The place is small but the pasta is nice; order a salad as well and it was pretty normal. Not an expensive place for a quick lunch / dinner.

Stopped in here looking for something different than the Irish fare we've been having and this place did not disappoint. Thought the service was good the food was quite flavorful and price was reasonable
