We arrived at La Gondola looking for good food and were not disappointed. The young lady greeting us on arrival was extremely polite and cheerful and informed us there was a 10 minute wait for seats. In reality we waited barely 5 minutes. We were presented with a glass of water on seating and ordered our drinks, which arrived promptly.... More

We just wanted something light to eat to keep us going on Saturday early evening, before we consumed vast quantities of Guinness, and guessed to share a pizza would be a good option. We got a table for two without difficulty and were welcomed. The pizza was lovely - a very nice base and sauce. The waiting staff were attentive... More

Discovered this place two years ago and it's my go to restaurant now whenever I'm in the city. The place has been done up and has a lovely sophisticated vibe to it. Good service and even better food

This place is just delicious. My boyfriend and I visited here the last time we were in Dublin, and we visited again for the third time this weekend and once again it did not disappoint. Prices are ok and the food is hot and very tasty. The only down side really is that it is small and cramped, and you... More

I came here recently for a quick bite to eat at night on a girls weekend. We had to wait around ten minutes for the table, but that wasn't a problem. The layout is quite small and there wasn't an awful lot of space. The food was lovely, and definitely filled us up and isn't too badly priced either. Perhaps... More
