Just visited la gondola, and couldn't wait to check out the reviews in here. And I was shocked!?!
We went in because we wanted italian food. We were welcomed by a smiling and interested waiter. We ordered a carbonara and a lamb with mushroom and gratinated potatoes. And both tasted great. It had real and natural flavours and tasted homemade. The only minus, if any, was that it was a bit cold inside. Recomended!! Can't understand all the bad reviews they have gotten..

I've visited this restaurant for over 35 years and it's reliable. This is a good place for a Sunday lunch if you don't want to spend too much. Nothing fancy or special but their Sunday menu deal is good value for the money. The staff is always very friendly and service minded.

We were a big group for dinner, that had several different plates to eat. I can only talk about the ones I personally tasted...the lobster soup, and the lasagna. Maybe it's me, and we had just come from Italy where the food is fantastic, but it was just ok at La Gondola. Kind of disappointing.

We went here as it was recommended in a guidebook and was also listed as the oldest pizzeria in town. The service was very friendly and they spoke very good English which we appreciated as we did not speak good Swedish. As we were not terribly hungry we wanted to order a pizza to share instead of one each. We were also ordering beers and other drinks. They informed us that it would be an extra three pounds (equivalent) to share the pizza. I did not appreciate paying extra for the same item just because we were sharing it. The food was pleasant, they also gave us free bread balls and the waitress was friendly.

The bill was quite expensive, as we had expected, so I was still a little annoyed about paying extra for a pizza but not getting anything. All said though, it was not a bad restaurant, but I probably would not return.
