We are visiting from Australia and wear craving some spaghetti bolognese - felt like a home cooked meal! Was tasty and the garlic bread was the best I've had so far in the US! Generous portions - I only got a bit over half way through my dinner. Relaxed atmosphere, and you order and collect from counter. Enjoyed the experience,... More

Every visit to Bloomington involves a sausage pizza Kelly Tobin Style at La Gondola! The very best in quality food and people to be had in this little town. If you are looking for great food at a reasonable price La Gondola is the place.

I brought my family of 8 and left full for under $25! I am a very picky person with a family this large, so for that kind of great food for that price, we will definitely be back. Thanks for the great experience.

The BEST pizza, spaghetti and sandwiches in town. This is by far my favorite restaurant in Bloomington/Normal. It's fast and delicious. I'm here a little too often probably!!

We ate here last week on our way to Indiana. Service was good -- very polite. Owner stopped by table to see how things were. Servings are very generous. Garlic bread was very tasty. Prices were very reasonable. Hard to get to with the street construction but it was well worth it!

Love the pizza! Minimal sauce makes it special. Wonderful flavor. Staff always friendly and seldom much wait time. Wish they would repair some of the seats but can't complain about the atmosphere.

Have lived here for 30 yrs, and ate here for first time recenly. I got spaghetti with meat sauce, Mike got tortellini with meat sauce, both came with a huge helping of garlic bread, and side salads. $20 for both meals. Will go back for this pasta, doesnt give me indigestion like that crappy Avantis... Will also have to go... More

Everything here is great, but we love the pizza! We'll be back! Very family friendly, and neat pictures drawn by kids on the walls. Carry out or eat in we've never been disappointed.
