Its been a few years since I visited La Gondola, and the place has had a nice make over. The owner is a character who will divide opinion but I quite like his rather unorthodox ways. They have a good varied selection on the menu, I tried the tagliatelle beef stroganoff, I really enjoyed the meal, which was very tasty... More

Six of us had dinner here last Saturday evening, it was vile and disgusting, this food does not remotely represent how Italian food should appear nor taste! Perhaps the owner should spend more time in the kitchen rather than hanging around the restaurant being rude to staff and customers, will never be back and certainly wouldn't recommend this place to...

Dear Maria Scappaticci, thank you for writing what you think of La Gondola, however I do not agree. What has pushed you to do this? Why did you and your companions of the table do everything to spoil the party? Firstly, you arrived 30 minutes late, and when the starters were ready to be served two members of your table... More

As usual staff are friendly and Luigi always makes you welcome. There is a great selection of authentic Italian food - the Cannelloni and lasagne are first class. Generous portions, great value for money and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Another fantastic meal by Luigi. It was my birthday yesterday and had an early evening meal with my husband. Staff always make us welcome. Delicious food. Prawns with garlic sauce as a starter for both of us. I went for the Spaghetti Bolognese and my husband had the special salmon for main course. Shared a generous tiramisu to end the... More

Luigi serves fresh and delicious authentic Italian food. There is a great variety and everything is reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and efficient. It's BYO, so that's an added bonus. We have been coming to dine here since we discovered La Gondola back in 2000. Sadly we live an hour's drive away now, but that doesn't stop us!

Have eating from here quite a few times and have to say the food on offer is very good for the price, however the owner should stay in the kitchen as he is usually just moping about and bringing a sense of doom and gloom to your night, also needs to dress more appropriately for his role, toeless sandals and...

Firstly, thank you for complimenting my food. However, this is my restaurant and I am in charge of the smooth running of both the kitchen and the restaurant. Do I not have the right to wear what I wish? Have you heard the saying - the dress does not make the priest? is it not inevitable that my t-shirt will... More

This restaurant is not for the faint hearted - food is excellent and so well priced, main course meal is around £8/10. It's BYO which makes for a cheap night But hope that you get the owner on a good night - he's quite eccentric to say the least (hence opening line of review) but personally I feel this only... More

Very affordable and good Italian food. Liked the small complimentary soups and dessert which was a nice touch. Only suggestion is to bring your own wine due to limited wine selection.

We spent a fantastic evening at Luigi's last night! The food was excellent, the atmosphere convivial. Well worth a visit. Bring your own wine. Reasonably priced.
