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.

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.

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.
