Ristorante la Gardela has an extensive a la carte menu, a set menu, daily specials and a tasting menu featuring regional dishes. There is a vast choice of antipasti, pasta dishes, meat and fish dishes, grills and vegetables. The wine list is also extensive and offers a good choice of regional and national wines.
The staff are pleasant, helpful, efficient and hard-working. You will refill your own glasses, but they will notice when your bottle is empty and ask whether you want another. We were impressed by both the energy and organisation.
Both our meals were excellent. Antipasti of young artichokes in olive oil and a local soft cheese, squacquerone (like a soft mozzarella with more flavour?), local saucisson accompanied by rocket and piadina. The spaghettu aglio, olio and pepperoncino and the tagliatelli siciliana were exemplary and the veal marsala was perfectly done. The T-bone was a delicious piece of meat, perfectly cooked. Portions are excessively generous.
The lemon sobetto was very lemony and light and creamy - a surprise. Both the Sangiovese wines we ordered - on the waitress's recommendation were good and distinctive.
We would be happy to return - still lots of things to try!
Closed on Thursday.

The restaurant offers an extensive menu, and all the meals we had were delicious. Portions were bountiful. The staff were friendly, patient, and helpful. We felt welcome as soon as we walked in the door, and returned more than once. This was not a tourist oriented restaurant; I'd say 90% of the patrons were Italians, if not locals. A very nice experience and highly recommended.

On my recent trip to Italy this was the best of the restaurants I visited, not only was the food of the highest quality but the friendliness of the staff, and above all their efficiency made this a highly enjoyable eating experience.

The restaurant is situated in the heart of the old central area of Ravenna, but it is no tourist trap as the prices were all reasonable. You can tell it is authentic by the number of locals, many with their well behaved kids, packing out the place on a Saturday night and adding to the warm atmosphere of the place.

Absolutely recommended.

We had made reservations at this restaurant in Ravenna, and were able when we arrived to get a table outside on the porch. As well as being a very charming spot, the service was excellent and the food outstanding. We started the meal with a platter of local meats and Squacquerone. a local soft,spreadable cheese, served with Piadina Romagnola, a local flatbread. I had tagliorini with radicchio and red wine, which was one of the best pastas I had in over two weeks in Italy. The taggiatelle bolognese was excellent as well, not oversuaced. With our excellent lunch we consumed several bottles of Sangiovese superior at 12 euros a bottle, an excellent match with the food. Be aware that this restaurant is very popular, so arrive early, or make a reservation.
