I enjoyed my lunch @lagondola. Nice service, very good taste. They have many lovely dishes and the sweets are well prepared and presented in a very fancy and passionate way. I will visit it again Insha'allah. Thank you Chef Ma'moun for the wonderful experience.

Enjoyed every minute. Taste of the mediteranean food was of high caliber. Carefree atmosphere. Elegant ambience. 5 star service. Friendly and obliging staff. Comfort of home away from home. For women in Saudi Arabia to find a place like this, is beyond the lucky stars. The complimentary dessert left my taste buds wanting for more. Thank you for making this... More

Been there for the first time in February for a dinner with colleagues. The food is very good and cooked in a real Italian style. Fresh and good ingredients are the ones making the difference. The Italian chef is very good and always welcoming guests. I recommend this place for Italian food in Al Khobar

Dined at this Italian restaurant upon our neighbours recommendations, apparently it is a very good place to take you better half... well our dinner was ok nothing special, the seabass special was well over cooked and tasteless, our waiter assured us that this is the way the locals like it. Strange replay. The sum things up, would I go back?... More

One of the worst Italian restaurants , it used to be good but today was very hideous food. Expensive and not worthy. Sorry to say that. The only good thing is the service and the souflet .
