“Solid Italian.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Not very attractive from outside so have avoided it. Interior décor is not that good and tables rather close together. However, the waiter worked his socks off and the food was good. We stuck to standard Italian, soup and pasta, and both were excellent. Unfortunately, cannot remember the names of the particular dishes. Too much wine, which was also good!

Will certainly return.

“Lovely Pizza Calzone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Good choice of the standard Italian dishes, adequate prices, friendly staff. At the weekend I would recommend to make a reservation, because it can be very busy. If you're searching for a good Italian restaurant in Kirkcaldy, I really can recommend "La Gondola".

“Adequate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Travelling through Kircaldy we were looking for somewhere to have dinner. We saw lots of people going into La Gondola so thought that was a positive sign. The staff were attentive when we first sat at our table but as it got busier we found it harder to get service, unlike the surrounding tables the waiters did not return to ask if we were happy with our meals and we had to wait some time to attract their attention and receive drink refills. It seems its who you know that matters here. As it happens the price and food portion sizes were good but we all found our different meals to be extremely salty, maybe thats personal taste but we still found the oveall experience sub standard and wont be back.

“Good food, decent price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Food was good but standard, nothing bad and price decent. Lacking in atmosphere and staff could do with some happy pills.

“Best meatballs ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

My friend and I were here on Saturday, requested a table for 2 at 7.30pm but very busy so table booked for 8.30pm. OMG what a busy restaurant. Extremely friendly and relaxed atmosphere. 3 courses each and every rush was 5* ratings! potion sizes, taste, presentation to extremely high quality. Waiters were more than helpful and nothing was too much for them, the place was packed with people coming and going and obviously some very very good returning regulars and each and every table when leaving thanked the staff or kitchen staff for great evening. It's a must if in kirkcaldy and the prices were so cheap in comparison to Aberdeen City. We would have been double + more for the exquisite meal we had here if back home.
