This is a place I went back to! It is routinely busy, but the staff find the space for you, and the kitchen does a great job of producing things in a timely way, I had one lunch and one dinner -- at lunch, there were a lot of local workers who were in a hurry, but I did not... More

Despite being completely full, with a tour group upstairs, La Gardela coped with style. We sat next to the kitchen and watched the impressive flow of fine food. What a pleasure to see such skill, and the warmest welcome. Thanks for your Sunday evening hospitality.

We were recommended this restaurant as the one that serves local dishes. It also opens early at 7pm, which is convenient for families with a small child. Food: excellent and fresh, both pasta and fish. Wine was also good. It felt like home made food. Service: very good, an older waiter was treating us as good as he could and... More

We thought it would be fine judging by how packed this large place was when we arrived, quite early for Italy. We were not disappointed. We were served cheerfully and efficiently. We dived into fish dishes and enjoyed them, along with the vegetables and antipasti. Well worth looking out for, quite close to the piazza in the most visited district.... More

Our meals at this popular restaurant were amazing. The pasta, mixed grill & roast potatoes we ordered were delicious. It was lovely to eat our dinner on the outdoor terrace. If you want to eat here you need to make a booking or get here early. We saw them turning people away when we left the restaurant at 8:00 pm.

Very busy Monday lunchtime, full of locals and a few tourists. Veal with lemon sauce and Frito misto, delicious and generous portions. Staff very busy. Very reasonable prices and very nice local wine. Some seats outside but most inside on two levels. Air conditioning. Highly recommended restaurant.

We went to this restaurant on a hot Friday night. It was very busy, but we were welcomed nonetheless into a stylish dining room which belied its very reasonably priced food and wine. The service was smart and professional, and the staff very happy to let us share courses, a delicious pasta with walnuts and a classic Italian veal dish.... More

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.
