Found La Gondola by chance but would definitely visit again. Very tasty meals had by our party of 4. All opted for different meals but each pleased with our choice. Friendly staff & lovely atmosphere. Homely food and great portions.

Quite a small restaurant but if you get a table you wont feel cramped. The staff is very professional while still relaxed and friendly. Families seemed very welcome and children were given extra attention. Food was excellent but not expensive.

This is a tiny restaurant where the food has a big taste. The staff are all friendly and attentive. I thoroughly enjoyed our food which had lovely flavours bursting out. No bland pizza and pasta in this little gem.
