Who says you have to hop on a plane to enjoy the Venetian canals? Over at this eatery, a picturesque gondola ride is only an order away.
La Gondola is bringing forth the authentic flavours of Italy in the heart of Temple Bar. Impossible to miss on the high street, this eatery beams out, robed in its cheery optimism and promising an evening full of laughter, good vibes and unbelievable food. The interior is cosy and pleasantly busy, much like a real Italian trattoria. Where there's always a seat at the table for unexpected arrivals, they bid Benvenuto to anyone who walks through their doors.
The menu goes classic with a few frills to distract you from the art of real Italian cooking. Let's start with the pasta which is fresh, creamy and decadent. Opt for classic spaghetti carbonara if you're in the mood for something really familiar, or jazz it up with a beef lasagne where every layer is better than the last. The risotto frutti di mare is also a winner and is packed with mussels, king prawns and squid.
As for pizza, you can expect the most celebrated concoctions which include Rustica, Marinara, and hot honey pepperoni, as well as more off-beat creations like goat's cheese and honey, and a pizza topped with vodka sauce, chicken and basil.
That's one hell of a gondola ride!
