As starter, we ordered a burrata and it was not very fresh
After we got the burrata, the waiter told us that he would have brought some bread.
Never seen the bread
As main dish, we had pasta with cacio and pepe. It was good to eat but when it arrived on the table, it was almost cold. Eventually somebody lost it when it was ready.

Much smaller inside than expected so bit cramped. Food was lovely although ordered foccaccia and cherry tomatoes for starters but it was pizza dough not foccaccia. Very tasty though. Service was really good. Feels abit tired could have some refurbs inside.

The food was good, authentic Italian however food arrived at different times meaning people had finished or were half way through by the time other people received their food. The portions were also small. The main issue was that from the minute we arrived, we felt completely rushed. Despite booking in advance, we were told they needed the table back in 1 hour and a half which does not make for a relaxing meal! At precisely 9.30 we were told we had to leave (despite them ordering us a bottle of wine not 5 minutes before which we had to pay for and leave!) Not normally one to make a fuss, I calmly explained to the manager that it had been a rushed and the meal was therefore not enjoyable but he did not care in the slightest!
We will not be returning.

My boyfriend and I spent my birthday dinner at Gola and it was perfect! As an Italian I can say that the food is incredible, the service impeccable and the atmosphere is friendly. I highly recommend Gola as it is my favorite Italian restaurant in London. I LOVE IT.

We were both pleased, the host welcomed us to the restaurant
Staff were attentive but not overwhelming, the food well prepared and fresh
As a vegetarian I had plenty of choice and the chef offered other dishes not on the menu
Would highly recommend Gola, we will be coming back later in the year with friends.

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.

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.
