We started picking on mushrooms with bacon and mozzarella, dried tomatos and a mozzarella, prociutto and rocket salad. Then a wonderful grantortelone with funghi porcinni, emincê with rosti and a mango mousse for dessert. All wonderful, beautifully cooked. I have been a returning customer for quite sometime and had always the best impression. I have been reading some of the... More

I really wanted to like La Gondola, because it is in a beautiful building and the staff are very nice, but the food was really mediocre and not cheap. I can make better Italian food at home.

After searching for nearly an hour for the "perfect" spot to eat, we found it! LaGondola looks absolutely sweet and welcoming from the outside. We found this to be true as well for the service. Our server was more than helpful and spoke wonderful English. We split a goat cheese and apple salad, I LOVED it. It was very fresh... More

The service is excelent and the food is very well presented, of good quality and in plenty quantity. Still, considering the price I would expect an extra "surprise" element especially in the vegetarian dishes which were quite bland.

My partner and I went to this restaurant after reading a review on Trip Advisor in January 2013, as we didn't have a lot of time in Lisbon and wanted to make the most of it. The review said that there was occasional Fado singers, which particularly interested us. When I phoned to make a reservation, a lady informed me... More

A good restaurant to go in every circumstance (with family or friends, as couples or on business or even alone). Friendly atmosphere, excellent cuisine. I was never disappointed. I have been there a few times now, for lunch or dinner, and I will for sure return. Close to the Gulbenkian Museums and Concert Hall.

My wife and I tracked down La Gondola through the reviews on Trip Advisor and thank heavens we did. As you might imagine, finding a restaurant that could take us on New Year's Eve in Lisbon was difficult as we only booked the day before. After several failed attempts with other restaurants that were fully booked we managed to find... More

The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding at La Gondola. The starters of cheese, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and bread were a wonderful way to start the meal, and the sopa de familia was delicious, as was the bistecca fiorentina with polenta. I had trouble deciding on the flavors I wanted for the mixed gelato, so the waiter offered... More
