This was my second visit for lunch, the first on a Sunday two weekends ago and then this week on Tuesday. The latter was much quieter as one would expect, but what I did not expect was the same meal I'd ordered two weeks ago to be recognisable the second time. The pasta on the first occasion was fresh, beautifully cooked with just the right amount of olive oil and seasoning, and the vongole were tender and sweet. A few small slices of white truffle took it to another level, it was simple, beautiful and delicious. Imagine the shock when on my second visit the same dish bore no resemblance. The pasta was crude, not fresh and overcooked, the vongole were overcooked and tough and the whole dish was swimming in a grey brown watery liquid from the vongole. It bore no resemblance whatsoever to the first time, it was perfunctory at best and no more than I'd expect in Spagetti House. Needless to say I didn't waste any white truffle on it the second time. My conclusion so far is that this restaurant pulls out all the stops on a Sunday when it is packed with families and regular customers but during the week when it is quieter the same staff, the same abilities and the same attention to detail are not there. At £110 for two, having one starter , a side dish and two pasta mains, admittedly including a £40 bottle of Gavi (over priced), I was very disappointed, but, I'll try again on a Sunday maybe because it feels like it should and could be better most of the time.

Gola was all we hoped for, wonderful authentic Italian fare, the ravioli with pistachios & honey was divine. The clientele were mostly Italian.....good sign! The service was excellent, the waiters, friendly helpful & utterly charming. Don't miss this fabulous restaurant but book!! It's busy up until last orders at 11pm.

Locale ottimo, cibo pure, e camerieri bravi oltre che cordiali. Il conto nella norma per essere un ristorante italiano a Londra. Non mi e’ piaciuto il fatto che non c’era tovaglia o quantomeno una tovaglietta per il piatto e posate che appoggiavano direttamente sul tavolo! Per il resto ok voto 8

I tried this restaurant after someone told me it was the best Italian food in London. We took our two young children for Sunday lunch. The food was DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to go back and try everything on the menu. The restaurant and staff are child friendly without compromising the atmosphere of the restaurant. Looking forward to my next meal at Avila.

The food was cold, the portions were small, the pasta was covered in oil, there was no flavour to the food, the restrooms were completely filthy. The dessert menu was written on a champagne bottle to save costs and maybe try and look cool but it just looked cheap. It was a special occasion for someone close to me and I was very unhappy and so were the other guests. Will never be setting foot there again. Extremely disappointed and it was overpriced for what were simple dishes of Italian food. I am Italian and eat out all the time so I know.

Une soirée magique!

Voulant fêter nos 1 an j'ai choisi ce restaurant cosi, chaleureux, romantique pour un petit tête à tête à l'italienne.
Le cadre est typique et intime. Le service est super et les plats sont délicieux.

Le meilleur italien de la ville !

Ps: avec un peu de chance vous croiserez un footballeur de Chelsea :)

Gola is a hidden pearl in Fulham. Got a very warm welcome on arriving. A pretty nice atmosphere with a very attentive staff. I think the owner gave me some suggestions on food and wine which I gladly accepted. Try the homemade pasta to name one.
Highly recommended
