This is a great food place, the decor is a bit too overwhelming and the prices are a little higher than average.

The restaurant pretends to offer italian cuisine. However, two pages of the menu are reserved for indian and chinese food. Our food was not freshly prepared. This restaurant does not seem to have a chef at all but only staff who unfreezes the food. A very mediocre experience. I would not visit this restaurant again.

I stopped coming here over two-three years ago because the service was just terrible. We decided to give it another chance. The service has significantly improved, the food was great, even that atmosphere seems better. Food rating: Calamari - great Soup - good Veal Milanese - meh (not on the menu) Pizzas - great Ravioli - good I'll start coming... More

The restaurant is very compact and cozy in terms of size, and the decor is average. They first serve you with garlic flat bread along with olives and marinara sauce as a dip, which is excellent. For starters we ordered "Orchidea dell Oceano" (Shrimps in a mascarpone cheese and mustard relish sauce) and "Fritto misto della casa" (Deep-fried crispy shrimps... More

I eat here a handfull of times per year. Given the alternative choices, I would pick this place. You get a nice portion, and they add more spices and types of cheese than the competition. The restaurant is spacious and service is ok. If you are driving, they have parking lot across the street. I usually order the specials of... More

As a big Italian food lover my last visit to La Gondola was a disaster. After had the pleasure to studie and stay in Italy for extensive time I have developed a love for the 'real" Italian taste. I used to find nice Italy food at La Gondola but that is not the case any longer. Both the starters and... More
