Tasty italian food. Shame about the service.

I have been to La Gondola several times. The food is consistently good, from fish to pasta and pizza. However, the service is pretty bad. Extremely slow and a lack of focus on customer service. Meals have come for some of my table and then the rest come 10 minutes later. Last time I was in... read more

Had lunch in this restaurant and it never did disappoint. Ordered burrata, pizza capriciosa and polipo salad as appetizers and wow, the creamy soft core of the burrata is unexplanable, while the octopus noted to be "carpaccio'ed" style with no fishy flavor and so utterly right to the bite. Ordered sea breem tagliatelle pasta, a special for the day, and... More

We ordered bruschetta fungi for starters and it was very good, Mushrooms are fresh and very tasty. Their olive oil and balsamic vinegar both came from Italy. We... More

Always great service here and the best steak ever! I love this place especially upstairs. They give you thin crust bread/pizza like starters for free which are yummy. Their Saudi champagne is yummy too.

The food is OK, but not the best I've tasted. The service is very good. WAY overpriced. Limited menu. The waiter broke our baby car, then left us and went on his way!

I have mostly eaten here for Business Lunches and have always been extremely satisfied with both the food and service. This includes both small and large parties - they do a very nice job.

Went there for dinner as a couple. Atmosphere and setting are very good, but the food was distinctly average. We ordered the four cheese pizza which was overpowered by the big amount of goat cheese and the chicken ravioli, which was a disaster. The ravioli was tough to chew and the chicken filling tasted as if they heated a frozen... More
