You’ll find La Gondola in a great spot, right in the heart of Sheffield’s lively city centre, close to the City Hall. It’s a good choice for a pre-theatre meal before heading for a show or before going for drinks at Walkabout. For a fantastic night of celebration, head here with friends and then cross the street to visit Paris nightclub.
La Gondola is housed within a bright white building that draws you in with its friendly ambience. Interiors are classic and emphasise the authenticity of the cuisine, with traditional paintings of Italian landscapes lining the walls. Friendly waiters greet you as you enter this familiar venue. A beautiful outdoor area with mosaic floors and pleasant greenery is a lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon as a tranquil escape from the hectic city.
The menu here is eclectic, with plenty of dishes to take your fancy. A choice of starters, including a classic garlic bread served on a thin and crispy base, are on offer for hungry diners to start their meals with. Substantial Italian offerings, like a classic lasagne and homemade spaghetti bolognaise, ensure that you’re kept full if you head here for dinner. A range of pizzas are offered, from classic margheritas to more unique seafood pizzas. For those who prefer not to eat wheat, plenty of dishes avoid pasta and bread altogether, with healthy grilled chicken and vegetables in a tasty garlic and tomato sauce. If you’re bringing children, don’t be put off by the lack of kids menu, as the friendly chefs are happy to make any half size meal for the little ones. Visit on a weekday and you’re allowed to bring your own wine, saving money and ensuring you can have your favourite drink.
If you’re looking for an affordable Italian with a pleasant family-feel, then La Gondola in Sheffield is the place for you. It’s a lovely venue to bring your family before heading to see a show or for filling up before heading out for drinks.
