You may find it a little bit pricey, but you get your money worth. Soup, anti pasta, and main course are all made to perfection. Nice atmosphere and friendly services

In November, a friend of mine took me out to La Gondola in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. La Gondola is a quaint Italian restaurant located near the Corniche. It has apparently been located at that spot for at least a couple of decades. The dining room(s) are not large. In fact, they are quite cozy. The staff and the food... More

The wonderful taste of spaghetti with scorpion fish sauce or calamarata with sea food sauce or sword fish "alla siciliana" or the sea bass, or the turbot when available, makes La Gondola a restaurant with a true excellent italian cuisine. Meat lovers should try the perfectly grilled juicy lamb chops or the wagyo meat steak or the angus black steak.... More
