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.

This is a place I went back to! It is routinely busy, but the staff find the space for you, and the kitchen does a great job of producing things in a timely way, I had one lunch and one dinner -- at lunch, there were a lot of local workers who were in a hurry, but I did not... More

Despite being completely full, with a tour group upstairs, La Gardela coped with style. We sat next to the kitchen and watched the impressive flow of fine food. What a pleasure to see such skill, and the warmest welcome. Thanks for your Sunday evening hospitality.
