“friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Even though the restaurant was quite busy and we had not reserved, they set up an extra table especially for us. Our food was quite good and the people around us seemed content too. When we were leaving we were offered a complimentary grappa or espresso. It's not Italy, but it was the best Italian restaurant of our visit to Germany.

“Eccezionale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We visited Koblenz last July and ate at La Gondola at our first night, according to Trip Advisor's recomendations.The restaurant is located almost at promenade near the Rheno River, and in spite of not beeing in any place particularly attractive, the food is really wonderfull. I can say that we ( i and my wife) had our best dinner in our entirely trip ( we visited Paris, Amsterdam, Heidelberg, Kohln etc). I strongly recommend the "tagliolini al parmigiano" (delicious, for 9,00 euros) and the gnocchi al gorgonzola(8,00 Euros)., acompannied by a tasty and beautiful rose wine. The waiters were very friendly e attentives. Unfortunatelly, when we went back to "La Gondola" at our last night at Koblenz, two days later, the restaurant was closed, for account of reforms.I hope some day we can return to " La Gondola".

“Top food and management but service is sometimes arrogant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is my favourite restaurant in Koblenz. The management is sound and the owner and his wife and family are genuinely service-oriented and understand food. There is, however, one waiter there who always seems to rub one up the wrong way and I have heard this from others. He seems like he does not want to be there. Too good for the place, would rather do something else? Whatever it is, you can tell his heart is not in it. Had it not been for the fact he has been kept on for years without showing any signs of improvement, I would give this place a five star.

The management is professional. If you want something special they are always flexible and their recommendations are good. They usually have their specials on a small blackboard that you are handed. This is in addition to the menu. I love their avocado with prawns which with their own dressing on it. They often have dorade for two which is parted at your table.
There is lots to choose from. Often this restaurant is booked out on a Friday. Reasonable prices and proper good ingredients make this a good choice.

“Favorite Restairant in Koblenz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I frequently visit Andernach and if time permits I will visit La Gondola for a meal. Staff is very friendly and the food is good. I would recommend it if you are in the area.

“Great Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The food here is wonderful as are the prices :-)

We arrived at the restaurant on a Saturday night with no reservation, this was no problem and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely be going back.
