Was looking for a good italian resturant and found it, it had nice food. I ordered a pasta dish and it was very good but it missed some bread on the side, i think they could have offered bread on the side if you prefer it.. Small intimate resturant and nice waiters, the hole food experience was not amazing but... More

My boyfriend and I went to La Gondola for our anniversary meal and we were so impressed with the service, food and atmosphere! The quality of the food was fantastic. I had the pizza and it blew my mind. I didn't know pizza could taste so good. He had pasta which he also thoroughly enjoyed. We had a side of... More

Went for a quick bite to eat here on a Saturday evening in early March. Decor was nice but the restaurant was extremely cramped with diners crammed in. Our order was taken after about 25 minutes, starters arrived and weren't as described on menu. The mains were worse totally not as described and items missing from what menu described. Food... More

I am in a wheelchair, which can be an issue sometimes as regards step-free access, so we were really happy to find La Gondola without any steps. The dining area was easy for me to navigate, and we had a... More

We turned up by chance and staff advised we may have to wait but we were seated quickly. Our waitress advised us of special offers and favourite menu items, all the food was tasty, well presented and good portion size. The risotto was excellent and we all enjoyed the food, it was v busy and tables are packed in tightly... More
