After a few days of ploughing through a lot of bad tourist tapas my cravings for some great Italian food led us here. About 10 minutes walk from the main square of Plaza Nuevas where you will be bombarded with more overpriced and largely poor food- stay well clear of Oh La la where I got the worst mousaka in human history, straight out of a microwaved pack, disgusting, and paid 5 euro for a beer. Having struggled through the urine-soaked streets of Granada in 43 degree heat for several days ,(yes, they love their pooches!), Il Gondoliere's stunning rose-petal scented bathrooms, air-con and unique decor provided welcome relief. The candle-lit tables were romance-laden as we endeavouired to choose from a menu of 63 pizzas (I reccommend no.53!) and superb pasta dishes. The service was friendly and attentive, allowing enough privacy for total relaxation. Great food, largely enjoyed by the Spanish locals in this fantastic little enclave away from the hoards and over-priced food and beer. I thoroughly enjoyed the free cava given at the end of our meal and the house wine was delicious- we ended up going back on our last night. If you're on a budget then the bars around here can also offer drinks at around half the price you'll find closer to the Alhambra. Expect tp pay about 8 euros for a massive pizza. Brilliant find. Enjoy!
