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.

La Gardela was exactly what we were hoping for: great wine, excellent food and fast service even though trattoria was packed on a busy saturday night. Super quality at a very good price. Ritorneremo senz' altro!

When we went to La Gardela in December, it was packed with noisy happy locals enjoying excellent trattoria cuisine. Although busy, the wait staff were friendly and attentive. Our starters (caprese salad and artichokes) and pasta were perfectly cooked and delicious. The prices were average for the old town. The house wine was very good.

Walking distance from the main square.   Our guide ordered a “salad” plate with crudite and a soft cheese.  It was excellent.   On the obligatory pasta, the sauce was skimpy.   Lots of locals were eating here.

I liked the food and the staff especialy the very sympatic old man... the service was quite quick. The menu was typical from Romagna, were only missing some vegetarian dishes.

Busy restaurant with local food. Excellent service, wonderfully crowded and a real Italian dining experience. Not fancy, comfortable and I would recommend. We lived in Italy 37 years so we know what is good and what is not!!!!
