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

I went there in August for my last day in Khobar after 4 years... with one of my staff chefs. The food was excellent, Osso-Bucco was out of this world, I cook it myself... I know what I am talking about. Fried calamari nice and crispy with 2 sauces, ice cream excellent... The only weak point was the service of... More

I like this resturant.The ambience, decor and everything. It just not a- kids friendly type-restaurant. Dont like the staff. They kept starring(without smiling at all)like something wrong with us. It was not convenient at all.Food was tasty compare with the price it's worth I guess.Portion was small though.

We had a great experience here. I ordered cheese-less pizza (it was awesome) and my husband ordered caesar salad (extra-creamy). Great service. Location isn't great but it's what I expect in Khobar!

However be aware the portions are big, I can usually finish a three course meal, but here I couldn't finish my Pizza after having the meatball slider for starter. You can however afford to be greedy as the restaurant... More
