We went here upon recommendation from our hotel and were blown away. We were served by a delightful man who spoke enough English to serve well, and more than compensated for language difficulties (more down to our own lingual ignorance) with enthusiasm and attentiveness. Couldn't recommend more highly - we are going back for our last night here tonight.

We had dinner here and very much enjoyed the experience. We had the 4course set menu of mostly meat based local dishes and a good bottle of local Sangiovese for less than 70 euro for two, which seemed very good value. Most of the clientele were Italians, but the waiting staff had passable English and were very efficient. Decor is... More

What else can you say? A nice surprise for us. I thought that the GRAN FRITO MISTO (fried fish , calamari (squid) and zucchini) was fantastic. 4 glasses of nice wine for EUR 12...where do you find that? OK, the service is rushed and not super-friendly, but go somewhere else if that's what you want. Outdoor seating. Nice location.

The restaurant was recommended at the B&B where I stayed as serving traditional local cuisine. Unfortunately the terrace was already full so I had to eat inside but the room was large and pleasant. The waiters were particularly friendly and although I speak Italian, an English speaking waiter came over to see if he could help. The fettucine with ragù... More

We moseyed into this place on a Sunday night,sat comfortably outside, and had a decent meal. It specializes in the regional food and is refreshing because it offers fish on its extensive menu. We had bronzino, a veal scaloppine with a cheese sauce, a pasta, dessert and wine. All were very good which makes this an average restaurant in a... More

We had been eating pizza every day for a week and decided to splurge on our night in Ravenna. We came here because it was recommended in the Rick Steves Italy 2014 guidebook and were not disappointed. Prices were very reasonable, especially for the homemade pasta. We got a table outside and were lucky that there were no nearby smokers... More

We had two excellent meals at La Gardela whilst in Ravenna. Pleasant service and good fresh local produce well presented. I would have rated this restaurant more highly if the house wine had been drinkable. Fortunately we only ordered a glass, but what a pity to spoil an otherwise excellent meal by offering such a poor wine when there are... More

The meat and pasta dishes were excellent. We also enjoyed the variety of offerings in the bread basket. We were seated in the outdoor section and noted that some people without reservations were unable to eat that evening at the restaurant.

Because of its location, at first one thinks this restaurant is a tourist place, once seated you will notice that it is popular with locals, too. Reservations are necessary to get a good table outside, although the restaurant is quite nice inside, too. The service is fairly efficient but not particularly friendly, at least not with tourists. The menu offers... More
