It all started 43 years ago when Josephine & Sam (Onorato) Agrusa first opened. Since then, Gondola Pizza has served original fresh homemade Italian food. Together with their 3 children, they worked from 4 a.M. To late hours, 7 days a week. As of today, they still work. Some in the office, some in the kitchen and some have opened their own business (North Carolina). All with the same goal - work hard and make the best food. We at Gondola Pizza, owners and workers, thank you for all your support through all these years, and we will be here for many years to come, always making homemade fresh Itailian food

Best pizza around! Excellent Italian food. It gets very crowded, so go early or later. They also have take out which helps on Friday and Saturday nights as the place is so packed, nowhere to sit. Have been going to Gondola's for at least 30 years!!!!

I have been visiting this establishment for over 20 years. The quality and flavors of their dishes are amazing. The only draw-back of this restaurant is the service. Although the help doesn't have a great change-over, the service offered leaves a lot to be desired. When orders are called-in, rarely are they ready in the allotted time allowance. If they... More

I had few friends over and wanted pizza. I heard from another friend that this place was really good so ordered to go DELUXE. The cashier was nice and the pizza was ready when I arrived to pick up. Got it home and so many different meats piled high for my hungry friends. I would have given 5 but the... More

as much as I love their pizza, I love the chicken parmesan even more. Service is usually pretty quick, unless you go on a Friday or Saturday evening, then expect a bit of a wait..

We come to Gondola's somewhat regularly because it is conveniently located and it offers some good pizza. It is GOOD pizza, it is not GREAT pizza. I enjoy Gondola's because it is a La Mirada hang-out, you will always run into people you know and I like that. They could improve on their customer service. Honestly, the only hiring standards...

I have been to Gondola's many times, and like everyone has said, the pizza is to die for. The best in the area. But I ordered a pizza to go and they said 20 minutes, no problem. I arrived 20 minutes later, yes, they were busy as usual but the girl at the counter said my pizza wasn't ready yet.... More

This place is not fancy, it's not trendy, but it's delicious and very reasonably priced. I wish that the salads were a little better quality instead of just using iceberg. Staff is very friendly and it's sort of local gem. Friends not from La Mirada really enjoy this place. I've had friends that have gone back on their own that... More

Gondola Pizza was the Italian find when I moved to La Mirada some 25 years ago. The food although traditional is very unique. I recommend the deluxe pizza( topping on top of toppings good) and the linguine and pesto. A little pricey but such a treat when your craving Italian. Located in a strip mall, Gondola is definitely a diamond... More

I was first introduced to this family owned pizzeria back in 1978. In my opinion it is by far the best one i have ever been too. All of their food is fresh and tasty. Pizzas are wonderful thick chessey and larger than the other places. Pastas so rich creamy and good portions. Some wine and beer and just recently... More

Been here a few times to dine in and carry out. The workers are always friendly and service is fast. You have to order at the counter and then find a seat, they'll bring you your food. Best when you just order a bunch of dishes and pig out family style. You'll want to try your neighbor's entree because most... More
