Have been a couple of times. Most recent experience was disappointing and we won't be going back. I had the rib eye steak which was served with three stone cold blobs of mash potato. Weird. The steak was distinctly average. My wife had sea bass which was better but covered in zucchini which was massively over seasoned. The tiramisu was... More

Best Italian Wine tasted there !service fast and friendly although was closure time ! Food of quality but more expectations ..octopus was tasteless as a starter . We share a main of orecchiette but the ragù was not tasty as we expected. Nice dessert gnocchi with Nutella . Good company of the owner as a real pugliese !

This must be the most unusual and quirkiest Italian restaurant. Excellent food and beautifully presented in a quirky way. Good atmosphere. A place full of surprises and good fun.

When you walk through the door you realise this is not going to be your usual Italian restaurant. Your eyes are drawn to the quirky decor, lovingly made by the owner. That passion comes through in the food with some delicious and unusual dishes. I had a clam linguini with a hint of ginger, amazing. We were spoilt for choice... More

Perfect pasta including seasonal white truffle. Although at the far end of Fulham, Gola is a lovely intimate restaurant with excellent service. Enjoyed their Italian hospitality!

One of my top three London restaurants. Aaron, angiolo and the team are the masters, a total must try. Excellent food and service with truly authentic Italian taste and feel. Forget the price and live a little
