We both started with the Parmigiana Melanzane which was delightful and the waiter even gave us some tips on how to... read more

My wife and I ate here and were very impressed. We only had one course but it was amazing. I had the calamari which was full of flavour and not greasy or chewy. Delicious. My wife had the showstopper. They were very understated on the menu, it just said meat rolls, but they were astonishing. A must try. The atmosphere... More

Gola is a great place to be! During the day, you get a great welcoming service. On the beach you will be helped by the PERFECT Lifeguard "Marco", he treated us like a guest. Always friendly and very intrested in you! In the evening you can eat very tasty food! We enjoyed two weeks of a great vacation! Thanks GOLA!... More

Its always hard to now what you will get at beachside restaurants but this place is not to be missed. We ate early and had the place to ourselves. Could not fault the food and service. Had we found this place earlier we would have eaten there again. It was excellent.
