We ate here as we were staying in the hotel next door. We had starters and main courses and both were very disappointing. It was poorly presented and tasteless.

Similar to other reviews, the decor is outdated- but almost to the point that it's kind of neat. The menu though is unfortunately also very outdated. I had lasagna which was good but nothing special. Throughout my visit there were 2 servers- one helped me between long visits sitting at a nearby table with people loudly discussing local politics, which... More

Food was Great, Atmosphere was like stepping back into the 60's. The staff was good, but I bet they have all been there since the opening. A little older crowd as well as staff. But the food was great, reasonably priced and served promptly. As I was in a hurry to catch the ferry that was important to me. Being... More

This restaurant, I believe is family owned, and the people are extremely friendly and pleasant. The atmosphere is very very dated- plastic flowers on tables, hard uncomfortable chairs, vinyl booths, etc. It is dark, but they have a great view. The food was very bland. Despite homemade pasta, there was no flavor. No garlic any where in any dish or... More

Run down inside - dinner came out way too fast (if it was cooked fresh, it clearly should have taken longer) and full of grease. I found a hair in my spaghetti. Wouldn't eat here again.

Great ribs, steaks and pasta menu. Location is good - across from the local Walmart mall on the water side of town. Close to the hotel I stayed in as well as noticing 4 or 5 other hotels in the vicinity.

Stayed at the inn on the harbor and due to the good trip adv reviews of this restaurant we thought we would give it a shot. Good food . Most of the fish we had on the fishermans platter was deep fried ( should have looked at that first) however very tasty. Worth having a dessert .... Homemade pie .

L:a Gondola has been serving the community for more than 50 years. The old owner has now passed away but the family still runs the place. Some changes have been made by the sons, and people are allowed to sit by the window now!
