On a hot Sunday afternoon, my daughter and I arrived in Ravenna without any clue as to where to have lunch. La Gardela was recommended by two guards at the S. Vitale museum. Green and white crisp linen tablecloths. Cool air conditioning. Locals and tourists filling a friendly atmosphere. Exquisitely prepared pasta. Super accommodating staff. Affordable prices. Very enjoyable, indeed!

We went here for lunch after a one hour car journey from Bologna before looking at the mosaics. We ordered lots of food to share including a delicious beef salad. The staff were OK and the location was relatively nice. Overall this was an enjoyable lunch in Ravenna.

The place is rather small with a lovely terrace, either go there early (7 pm) or reserve a table in advance, it's always full. The food was excellent (we ate pasta, fish and deserts) staff is nice-polite-helpful. The only "negative" is as very popular you eat and leave as they sort of need the place but not in a bothering...

Liked the food, but maybe they don't like British people or maybe it was just that they didn't like us - because the staff were not welcoming and friendly.

Overall great meal without any negatives. Even had gluten free pasta. Perfect little patio slightly away from main tourist restaurants.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Though it's a bit crowded, the waiters work really fast and they are friendly. I took the menu of the day, and it was really good! I got ravioli with spinach and ricotta with sage and butter, and it was one of the best I ever got! The second was a stick with diferent... More

We took the advice of other Tripadvisor commentators and were not disappointed, This is very good, authentic Italian food served expertly by an attentive staff at a reasonable price.

We visited this restaurant for a casual lunch. The hotel we were staying in was just around the corner and it was recommended, after we browsed the menu we decided it looked ok. I ordered anchovies and a local pasta dish both of which arrived quickly. The food itself was very nice and tasted freshly made and good quality. I... More

We were lucky to have a table outside on the cramped footpath. Not ideal, but served it's purpose. We were quickly served with everything we needed. We tried the marinated anchovies and the salmon with toasts - both of these dishes were good. Then my husband had the lamb chops, which I had read on TA that they were excellent... More
