We were rushed to eat and drink within the 2 hour time slot given, despite waiting a long time for our food. The manager was very arrogant. He clearly doesn’t care about repeat custom.

Gola catered for our very diverse needs from 60+ to 95 ! We enjoy meeting up here once a year close to the school where we all used to teach- we all enjoyed a really leisurely 3 course lunch with coffee and wine. Thank you again- see you next year !

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we entered. The staff are super friendly and approachable - and the ones we spoke to were from Puglia. The dishes are traditional Italian and of very high quality. We particularly enjoyed the Fiano wine. Not many places offer Sgroppino which was prepared very well, but the top drinks prize goes to the negronis, prepared by the manager - these were outstanding.

Been many times. Always excellent and consistent. Truffle pizza great. Prawn starter. Top wine list. Tignanelo always good value. On negative side out of frangelico and then chambord

I had heard loads of good things about Gola and as a local was keen to check it out. Things started okay with a delicious buratta starter and a good wine recommendation but went down hill from there - the pizza and pasta main for which we both took recommendations of house specialities were bland at best and needed a very heavy hand of seasoning. The staff however seemed attentive, but turned out they wanted our table back for 9.30 which was a surprise as our reservation only started for 7.30. We were basically hustled out by 9.35 when we didn’t order dessert leaving a bad taste in our mouths and we went elsewhere for a sweet fix. Two doors up is Luna Nuova for which the service is way better and no time limit on exit. The food is also better. Overall I won’t be back when there is a better option literally up the road.

I was been in Gola restaurant on 26th April because i was in Holiday in London. The restaurant is excellent. First of all All staff were kindly and professional with the customers, moreover The owner's restaurant Aaron is a really expert about italian food, ingredients, cooking and beverage (included wine and champagne). In addition aaron is a really nice guy ! I suggest visiting This Place as soon as possible when you will be in London. Food Service and Location are Perfect in this italian place.
