I’ve been to Gola with my boyfriend a couple of days ago.
Since when we came in we felt like at home.
The service was amazing and the food even better.
I had the best ravioli with pecorino cheese, truffle and honey of my life.
And the dessert was WOW!!
Definitely recommend this place to everyone.
Can’t wait to come back!!

Simply delicious food for a hot-summer, London night. The smiling team were warm and welcoming. Unusual fun decor. We sat in the back yard which was lovely.

Small place with funky decor and ambiance. Freshly prepared pasta and pizzas. I am not if it is the best Italian pasta that one may find in London but it is an excellent value.
Service is outstanding and the owner will make sure that you will have an unforgettable dining experience.

I was so looking forward to Gola for my birthday meal, however it was one of the most disappointing dining experiences I've had in London. Although our female waitress was incredibly friendly, when my pasta was delivered to the table and I took a bite, it was freezing cold. I told another male waiter that it was cold and he shrugged. I stared at him, hoping the shrug would warm it up - it didn't. After a long enough stare of shock, he finally took my plate to the kitchen quite reluctantly after asking "How could pasta straight from the kitchen be cold?" - I had exactly the same thoughts.
About 10 minutes later, my dish was returned with a boiling hot plate and slightly warmer pasta (their microwave works apparently). I couldn't be bothered to complain again as the male waiter continued to be rude for the rest of the evening.
This place is completely overpriced with an extremely rude waiter. I've also just read some reviews and I assume the rude waiter replies to people who have the same issue. I will not be recommending this place to anyone.
