“Terrific food & delightful ambiance”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We have had 2 great meals here and took some friends who also greatly enjoyed the food and the particularly friendly and helpful service. Whilst the menu is not large we have tried an array of dishes and they all have been terrific. The location and ambiance are second to none.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We went to this restaurant after looking on the tripadvisor and being recommended. We went for an evening meal with two other friends who had decided to treat us. The cheese platter that we ordered was nothing special and not value for money. I ordered rabbit which was covered in sauce and that is the only thing I could taste. My wife ordered sausage which came with ricotto cheese and broccoli which did not complement the sausage. One of my friend ordered beef bourguinon had a lot of grizzle in it. The desserts were OK. Sadly the overall experience was poor and would not go again.

“I became a regular!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I moved in the area and I can definitely recommend La Gourmandina as a chill out "local". I came since the opening last year and it's every day better and better. The seasonal menu is fantastic and as a regular I appreciate the changes from time to time. The dessert offers have multiplied and you now find many delicious home made cakes. Don't miss the regular wine tasting evenings, as the Chef becomes even more creative with special dishes just for these evenings.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

La Gourmandina has always been a favourite place of mine for a glass of wine and some delicious snacks, it's intimate and cozy and the owners are absolutely lovely. The house wines are excellent - way better than some of the much more expensive wines I've had elsewhere. I've been there for breakfast too which is also great and well priced. But recently my best friends held a surprise party for me there, in their back room - and it was absolutely perfect. They made every effort with the food, drinks and atmosphere - all wonderful. Can't rate it highly enough!

“Magnifico!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Cozy gem, a real find. The co-founders, Marie and Stefano, are wonderful people that make you welcome in their labour of love. Unlike the plethora of chain and formulaic restaurants, this is a genuine establishment with more than a personal touch. Combination of Italian (Venetian) and French food.
