Early Sunday evening dinner. I had the linguine with clams. Quite tasty. My friend had a pizza which looked quite tasty. A bit pricey but then that’s what you pay in Fulham so not unexpected

Food was very good and nicely presented, service was excellent and the place is really lovely.

My only slight gripe is that it’s rather overpriced and the portions are on the smaller side. I would go back though!

The best burratta that you can find in London.
I had my wife’s 33rd birthday and the level of service we received was extra ordinary. 4 staff members even came to our table to sing her Happy Birthday.
Amazing food, excellent and extremely freiendly service and delicious food!!

The bad experience in London .
Firstly the antipasto was called “salumi” I received only mortadella and 5 pieces of salami and 2 pieces of coppa and vegetable like eggplant and peperoni this is not the traditional antipasto of Italy.
The main courses “ravioli with mushrooms and truffle” was uncooked and was only oil truffle NOT TRUFFLE actually I required to add some truffle at my plate .
The second course was tuna with avocado , the tuna was not good and also tab water 3,80£.
Total 140£ quality so bad and services as well.
Never again

What a great surprise - Gola is a diamond in the rough. A very simple and unassuming atmosphere, but don't judge the book by it's cover. All of our dishes were creative and amazing (we especially liked the lobster pasta). The staff and owner were very friendly and attentive. Italian food at it's best. Can't wait to return!

Our first meal on our first ever family holiday (we truly love to relax at home, but it was time to show the kids London) was at Gola, and it was lovely. The staff were kind as can be to the whole family, and the food was delicious. I understand why reservations are pretty much a requirement to be sure of a table.

Considering that it was so close to Christmas, we were surprised by the low number of diners. Therefore the ambience was lacking. For some reason a number of tables had been rearranged to form an almost continuous table which gave the impression of a school dining hall. The food, certainly compared with earlier occasions, was disappointing. A further problem was the defective lock on the toilet door, albeit it was repaired during the course of the afternoon. Overall I can't see myself returning any time soon, although the staff were, as ever, very pleasant.

We went there for a lunch on saturday. The menú was really interesting. Service was really disappointing and poor, they were too busy to take care a table next to us (probably family or close friends), even while he was taking order from us, he got distracted from another guest coming in, totally ignoring us. That’s very rude, totally killed our mood and we just want to leave as soon as possible. Food quality it was good overall, but one of us had gluten free allergy and her plate of pasta it was just watery with no taste at all (and have a gluten free allergy doesn’t mean to have food with any taste). NOT suggested for gluten free people.
