The food in this establishment is nice and the waitresses are pleasant. However, the manager was rude when I turned down desert and when I paid for the bill it seemed I was given the wrong change. He worked the sums out in his head...More

Its been a few years since I visited La Gondola, and the place has had a nice make over. The owner is a character who will divide opinion but I quite like his rather unorthodox ways. They have a good varied selection on the menu,...More

Six of us had dinner here last Saturday evening, it was vile and disgusting, this food does not remotely represent how Italian food should appear nor taste! Perhaps the owner should spend more time in the kitchen rather than hanging around the restaurant being rude...More

Dear Maria Scappaticci, thank you for writing what you think of La Gondola, however I do not agree. What has pushed you to do this? Why did you and your companions of the table do everything to spoil the party? Firstly, you arrived 30 minutes...More

As usual staff are friendly and Luigi always makes you welcome. There is a great selection of authentic Italian food - the Cannelloni and lasagne are first class. Generous portions, great value for money and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Another fantastic meal by Luigi. It was my birthday yesterday and had an early evening meal with my husband. Staff always make us welcome. Delicious food. Prawns with garlic sauce as a starter for both of us. I went for the Spaghetti Bolognese and my...More

Luigi serves fresh and delicious authentic Italian food. There is a great variety and everything is reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and efficient. It's BYO, so that's an added bonus. We have been coming to dine here since we discovered La Gondola back...More

Have eating from here quite a few times and have to say the food on offer is very good for the price, however the owner should stay in the kitchen as he is usually just moping about and bringing a sense of doom and gloom...More

Firstly, thank you for complimenting my food. However, this is my restaurant and I am in charge of the smooth running of both the kitchen and the restaurant. Do I not have the right to wear what I wish? Have you heard the saying -...More

This restaurant is not for the faint hearted - food is excellent and so well priced, main course meal is around £8/10. It's BYO which makes for a cheap night But hope that you get the owner on a good night - he's quite eccentric...More

Very affordable and good Italian food. Liked the small complimentary soups and dessert which was a nice touch. Only suggestion is to bring your own wine due to limited wine selection.

Hi, I am trying to find out if you were the restaurant we visited around 10 years ago while the Baronscourt carriage driving event was on. My father is 80 this year and still talks fondly of the fantastic Italian restaurant we visited while there, the great character of the chef, and the amazing food. Hopefully this is you and your restaurant. I am making a book for him of his past 37 years involvement in carriage driving and would like to add the restaurant we visited, but not sure if it is yours. Please could you let me know how long you've been in Omagh and I will work it out. Hopefully it is you! Helen x

They could certainly take that many. You can get drinks from the bar and off licence next door. I am sure if you contact Luigi on the Facebook page he will help out. If you go on to Facebook you can request a menu. The... More
