Delicious Romagna food at reasonable prices

We dined here twice during our brief stay in Ravenna. The ravioli dishes are superb, and we loved the Fritto Misto of Calamari, shrimps, octopus and zucchini. Hectic on a holiday night, the service is nevertheless excellent. Highly recommended

The Via Ponte Marino area in central Ravenna is good for finding a restaurant for dinner. On this evening, we choose for La Gardela. It was a pleasant evening and we were able to get a table outside. Hint: When the weather is good and you want to sit outside, arrive early or make reservations. This restaurant features many local... More

A small restaurant, with nice terrace in the center of the old city. The food was excellent and service great, despite a very busy lunch period, with many customers. Highly recommended.

This friendly restaurant caters to both locals and visitors, without giving in to the pressures of mass tourism and maintaining the relaxed homely atmosphere of eating out like one would eat at home. Very friendly and hard working staff, quality and price match perfectly. A place I have been several times and always like to return to.

La Gardela had a good mix of tourists and locals. We thought the food was fine, also the service.. We shared a pasta--maccheroni with gorgonzola and nuts, which was quite good. The cheese is soft and mild, not the overpowering gorgonzola we get in the US. Then we had one spiedini (skewers) with chicken, sausage, etc. and a grilled branzino,... More

We had evening meal here and loved it. Staff busy , attentive, interested and efficient. We shared grilled lamb chops, grilled sea bass, roasted rosemary potatoes and grilled vegetables--all perfect. The house Sangiovese is good. All excellent value. We would have loved to have eaten here on our second night but sadly for us it was a Thursday and the... More

My sister recommended that we go to this restaurant and we made a reservation before we left the US. This is a bustling restaurant with an extensive menu. Obviously, the locals dine here all the time. Because they were so busy, we had to wait for someone to take our orders – not a problem since we were not in... More

I went to Ravenna for three days and ate here three nights in a row. The service was great and fast and the food excellent. Squacquerone cheese and the tiramisu are worth a try!

Well located, attractive room, friendly excellent service. The pasta was delicious but the meal was otherwise disappoinig. Bread & crackers were tasteless and dry. Salmon was overcoked and bland. Mixed grilled veggies also meh. Wouldn't go back.
