Located in the center of Ravenna the restaurant appears to be very popular among locals. We went there for lunch and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The place was packed for a reason. The prices are a bit lower than in the neighboring businesses.

We were able to be seated right at 7 when no one in restuarants yet without a reservation. Only one other table was not reserved and filled up by 8 pm. Good food good price.

Though the restaurant got packed in a while after our entrance, the service and the kitchen were really fast. The food is traditional and very tasty.

Recommended by our inn keeper, we enjoyed a very good dinner at La Gardela. A starter of local cured meats was flavorful. Followed by two good pasta dishes, we then split a selection of grilled meats which were superbly cooked. Of our desserts, we agreed that the wine poached pear was excellent. The house red wine was a good accompaniment... More

We dined here twice during our stay. The food was very satisfying, generous portions and served promptly, without rushing us at all. The atmosphere was warm, cozy, and very family friendly, most of the clientele were local families. Perfect if you want local cuisine for a good value.

We went there at lunchtime on Saturday. It was raining but mild and they let us sit outside. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Highly recommended.

I was there for lunch today. The restaurant was heaving. The deco is kind of tough. We had a table upstairs which was kind of claustrophobic. The tagliere was excellent, the cappelletti and maccheroni with Gorgonzola were nothing special. They have a very varied menu. maybe we should have chosen the grilled meat or fritto misto instead.

I often visit Ravenna, and I always make sure to have at least one meal at La Gardela. Come here if you want to avoid trendy, improvised places. This is a simple traditional little family restaurant, old fashioned and with very professional but warm waiters. Last week I went back and had the very best roast lamb ever. It was... More

The weather had turned colder, we were both tired and we had looked at several places before stopping here. A busy place but handled so politely and efficiently. Super food, super service. Proper traditional cloth napkins and table-cloth, unlike some of the places targeted at tourists. Dinner there cheered us up a lot and we would go straight back when... More

This was our first restaurant in Ravenna and was a lovely find. It was filling up fast but despite this service was excellent and genuinely cheerful. The bruschetta was lovely and fresh. Both main pastas were delicious and were regional specialities. I would recommend this restaurant for both its good food and service. Not fancy but genuine.
