My fiancé and I loved the warm, cozy atmosphere of La Gondola. The restaurant offered an extensive wine selection, with many bottles reasonably priced. The menu has a sufficient number differently prepared entrees to choose from. We especially enjoyed the king prawns, and the fettuccine pecsadore was excellent! We also shared a chopped garden salad that was tastefully dressed. We... More

The restaurant is located very near to the Gulbenkian Foundation and Museum, It has a wonderful garden fresh and full of shadow. The cuisine is a mix of good Italian pasta and risotto (I tried tortelli filled with sea food and they were outstanding) and traditional well cooked Portuguese fish and meat. I had also an excellent gazpacho. The choice... More

I came by this restaurant accidentally after arriving in Lisboa a few hours ago. The rstaurant is immediately inviting with its lush plants and old-world personality. Sergio, my waiter, was friendly and wanted to do nothing less than give me the best that the restaurant had to offer. I had two of the specials: 1) mushrooms with mozzarella cheese, served... More

The cute garden and homey decor brought us into A Gondola; the service and food made us want to return. Our waiter spoke great English, and was all around fantastic. His recommendations were great, and he made our meal perfect. In fact, when the kitchen got busy, our waiter himself put together our dessert. There was a great selection of... More

Once we had worked out how to cross over from the metro station the restaurant was easy to find. The staff were helpful and knowledgable and the food interesting and full of flavour. We both liked the recommended white wine. We were surprised at how quiet the restaurant was on a Saturday night in early May. This quietness and quite... More

La Gondola is across the street from the Gulbenkian Museum and is the perfect place to have lunch or dinner. The restaurant includes a tree and vine-sheltered patio ideal for a warm day. Though this is the first Italian restaurant in Lisbon, the large selection of local Portuguese cuisine is featured. I would recommend the Arroz de Tamboril - a... More

Don't go here. It's a nice little set up but the food is overpriced and boring. We only went to this restaurant as it was near our hotel. But the staff were not very friendly and there was a smoking section in the restaurant so it was rather smelly. Although it was nicely decorated (quite traditional) there was no atmosphere... More
