Description: 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

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

We laughingly consider ourselves "food-aholics" and are continually in search of good things to eat. Since moving west we've had lots of problems satisfying our tastes for good pizza. However, Gondola Pizza may be the answer to that. The atmosphere is very loud, but that's because you have so many customers in line waiting to place an order. And people... More

So we decided to try their pizza while on vacation, after hearing great things about it, and it turned out to be an awesome pizza place. We loved it. We ordered the extra large pizza with everything on it, we wound up having a lot of leftovers (that actually even reheated well)..I highly recommend trying them if you are in... More

Growing-up in Chicago where the best pizza in the world is plentiful (sorry New Yorkers) I was depressed living in LA as I could find no decent pizza. Until I found Gondola Pizza in La Mirada/Whittier, CA. Good thin crust, tasty sauce and all the toppings are quality. All at reasonable prices.

Everybody goes there- except us these days. Pizza pretty good but too heavy. We are just old farts now & heavy food weighs us down.
