The atmosphere in the restaurant is pleasant, the service is polite and fast, the food is very tasty! The staff understands English, no problem.

It is a pity that the good food is wasted in hands of bad management.Even they try so hard to express the "High quality",the policy is not matching and just like the old night clubs of Ankara. So you wait for the attitude of the...waiter to end to sit and eat your meal while all empty spaces are reserved even if it is not their resevation hour!!!(after 19.00 is) Then there comes a half button young man with a lady off to reserved tables and he even may choose among while your old mama is trying to fit her meal and drink under the sun!Do not even bother to go and ruin day.Thank youMore

The food and service is inconsistent with the high prices and the great location and setting. While the Cafe de Paris steak was decent, the duck confit came with the worst sauce we have ever tasted - it was bland and tasted of uncooked alcohol....The level of service did not live up to expectations - the wait staff was not attentive and forgot to bring a drink we ordered. No-one asked if we wanted dessert after the main course was cleared. After a long wait we asked for the dessert menu but was told that the kitchen had just closed and that we cannot order dessert. Overall a very disappointing experience.More

Been here for Eid lunch. The restaurant never ceases to impress me. The staff were all attentive as usual, the dishes were delicious and the ambience for pleasant. On the other side, they have increases their prices drastically due to the pandemic. However, you feel...safe in La Gioia under the present circumstances because they take the hygiene very seriously.More

Good food. Go there for your family or romantic dinner. Social place. Luxury. Nice place to be seen at. Outside of Beymen fashion.

Don't like the place, food is not that good, and the customer profile is very bad, it is in a very good location but other than that, nothing

A high rated upscale restaurant in a popular area in Ankara. Nice decoration, good not disturbing music, good service, and staff. The menu is Italian-American with some local touch. The prices are high than average but deserve what you pay.

Very nicely decorated,people around are chic.I must mention that also service is good enough.Every time I like to try something different from menu.The location is good enough to look around if you are alone.

Visited this restaurant with my parents and daughter as we wanted to enjoy a 'special' meal out in Ankara. The setting is pleasant and the staff are very polite and attentive. However, the food was a little disappointing. The ravioli was good but the gnocchi,...which two of our party chose, was dull and tasteless and the apple tart dessert was also uninspiring and bland. Since the prices are high end you expect the food to all be of a high standard and this was, sadly not the case.More
