“Needs upgrading”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

An Italian restaurant, for sure, and nice people, but they should evaluate the possibility for upgrading the menu. Living in Moss in the late 1980s I dined there several times, and I cannot remember I complained, but there has been a development in restaurant qualities since then. Now there is a lot of very good restaurants in Norway, Moss included, and La Gondola are for the moment not keeping up with the competition.

“need an upgrade!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is really sad, because the people who runs the restaurant is adoreble.. But the food?? Not good... I ate there a lot when I was younger, and the food tasted like it had been made back then and served now.. Dissapointing!

“Best Calzone ever”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

I have had the pleasure of enjoying La Gondolas meals since their opening and I was just a kid. Pretty much all of my favourite Italian dishes originate from this restaurant and I have tried Italian food all over the world. I compare the Italian food with this restaurant and they come up short almost everywhere else. Love their pizzas, pastas and the meat!

“I had nightmares about this restaurant”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

The pale and overcooked pasta, burned calzones, some badly presented italian sallad (probably factory made) was served with bread - even if we didn't ask for it. Wine was not exactly the best, and everything had steep prices. If you want a good laugh, you should definitely go to this restaurant. If it is good food you are after, stay away.

“This is one gondola ride you definitely should not take!”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

I ordered a Calzone and a pasta dish for takeout. Should be a simple task for an Italian restaurant. Apparently not for La Gondola. The pizza was burned and the pasta was so overcooked you could easily mistake it for pudding. The sauce was bland, and the presentation horrible. The pasta dish looked like it had already passed through somebody elses digestive system. The price was also pretty steep, with a simple Calzone costing $ 25-30, and that's for takeout. The sauce and the presentation I can forgive, but an Italian restaurant that can't cook pizza nor boil pasta, does not deserve to stay in business. Stay far, far away from La Gondola.
