Obviously a popular spot for the well heeled locals, although the menu was reasonably priced. Arriving without a reservation, the made it clear it was not a problem and got us seated. The menu was in German but the staff were excellent at helping us through it. The salads were very fresh - no iceberg lettuce here! Soups were terrific.... More

What a gem of a place. We came off a cruise and walked up a street. The first Italian we came to the waitress was rude when asking about a table so we moved on and found this gem. The waiters could not be more helpful. The food was in the top 5 Italian restaurants ever used. Spent a second... More

Although living in North America now for over a decade, I am still looking for an Italian restaurant that can compete with La Gondola. This was my favourite place in Koblenz, food and service unrivalled. I look forward to coming back next month while in Europe.

I have been to la gondola many times, but could never understand the hype about it. The food is good and the service ok but not in any way outstanding compared to other good restaurants. They simply do less things wrong than other places, apparently that is enough to be among the top.

Went there because of high ranking and didn't regret, as food was great, services - great! Value for the money for sure! Just the small thing which is so typical for south Europe - the kind of "compliment" snack before meal you didn't order or ask, but you are charged afterwards is frustrating. But otherwise, really enjoyed the dinner!

We found this restaurant from tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our sole was fresh, beautifully cooked and presented. Staff were friendly and helpful, even allowing us to sample the wine before purchase! Simple decor, but obviously a first class Italian restaurant which we can highly recommend. Very good value for money.

A favourite of our German friends, we had a lovely evening in this top quality Italian restaurant. The surroundings are quite plain, but the food was delicious, especially the whole turbot for two, cooked to perfection and lovingly served, even to scooping out the little 'cheeks'. The wine list could have been a little more interesting, but this did not... More
