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!!!!

I have been to this restaurant many times over the past 20 years, and it has remained my safe, "back-up" venue for good food, good service, and amiable atmosphere. Although always a single diner, I have always felt welcomed, even on a "walk-in" basis--when the waiters sense they're serving someone who isn't fussy, and who likes to eat (and drink!),... More

Went here because Rick Steve's recommended. Arrived to find the dining room almost empty, so were surprised to be seated directly in front of the kitchen. Clearly, it saved the waiter from having to walk any distance to our table. Not that we saw much of the waiter. Anyhow, we ordered salad and it was out and on the table... More

Within a short walk of the wonderful Basilica di San Vitali, this very busy restaurant offers an extensive regional menu at sensible prices with a good range of local wines. Service is swift and professional (we visired for lunch and also dinner during our stay in Ravenna) and the cooking is in our experience very good. The constant flow of... More

Had dinner there in 2010 and then when we returned to Ravenna 2014 we brought our friends here to join us for lunch. Sitting on their patio is so pleasant and relaxing. We had a delightful lunch at a reasonable price.
