We couldn't be much happier with our meal here. The service was professional and courteous. The food came out a bit too quickly, but beyond that our experience was truly lively. We started with an antipasti platter and artichokes, which were very tasty. We both had fish as our secondi, the Duraude and the Bronzino, which were grilled perfectly. We washed everything down with half bottles of Vermentino and Greco Di Tufo. Dessert and coffees were spot on. This place got packed around 130pm, so get here early.

This was conveniently situated for us not far from where we were staying. We chose it partly because it was on the Itinerari del Gusto (Taste Routes) map given to us by tourist information when we asked about places to eat. Good food, Good service, Pleasant staff Good house wine

My spouse and I didn't have any dining plans on our day trip to Ravenna, but after taking a turn off of the main route to the mosaics we walked up a quiet street filled with shops and restaurants. La Gardela looked especially promising with it's pretty facade and outdoor seating and we resolved to return for lunch. After viewing the mosaics we returned and had lunch outside served by a cordial efficient waitstaff. The menu is extensive and in Italian, French, German and English. However, at our lunch there was only one other couple who were not speaking Italian. We chose to go with the daily specials and were not disappointed. I had the sole and my spouse had the gilt-head bream. Both were properly prepared and delicious. We also had appetizers including an artichoke and celery salad, deserts and a 1/2 liter of a tasty house white produced in the Romagna. All in all an excellent lunch for two for less than 60 euros. When we left the restaurant it was full of locals, so reservations are advised. Good food, good service and fair prices. You won't be disappointed dining here.

We had dinner here. It was packed by 8:30 but we got the last free table. I had a butter, sage ravioli and steamed veggies. It was delicious. My friend had lasagne and a salad. She enjoyed her a lot as well. The white wine was excellent. Dessert was yummy. My creme caramel was great but my friend's strawberries were not quite ripe. We both agreed it was one of our favorite meals in Italy over the past 2 years. The service was slow at times because there was only one person serving the 30 people upstairs. It was not terrible though and we were out of the restaurant 2 hours after we arrived.

One of the best restaurants in Ravenna - definitely an experience to try...and then try again!
The best traditional dishes served by friendly (well, nearly all friendly!) waiters/tresses in a professional manner. I can't really add more: you must try it yourself then let us know here on Tripadvisor! ^_*
