Great Food at a Great Price

We set up a team dinner with 32 people. Everything was spot on and the food was excellent and enjoyed by all. They entertained a few special requests for alterations to a couple attendees food with no problem. "Sharky" laid out the way the meal would be served and all the staff pitched in to make... read more

This is kind of a fast food restaurant but not really... The sauce they use is amazing and they make their own bread every day. Their garlic bread is to die for... We had their lasagna and garlic bread and I couldn't wait to go back again. Tried their sandwiches one day but that wasn't my kind of sandwich, too... More

I have come down here and ate the spaghetti. I was severely disappointed. There was very little sauce even littler meat and it tasted fairly plain. The garlic bread though was alright for what it is cuz the bread is made fresh. And the sub sandwiches are nice but the only thing really good about it is a server and... More

Have been eating this food since i was old enough and my parents were bringing it home. As everyone else has said the bread and sandwiches are amazing! I used to get a loaf of fresh bread just to nibble on. Pasta sauce has a unique and amazing flavor and everything is always fresh and hot. Sharky and his family... More

This is the best spaghetti around, the meatballs are just like homemade. I have been coming to La Gondola's for over 20 years. You will never find garlic bread this good at places like pizza hut, those chain restaurants spend more money on the atmosphere than providing great food. Love the drive thru on rainy and cold days.

I went in HUNGRY and after standing there 5 minutes another customer came in the other side of... More

Not open Sundays, never will be and I respect that. Family owned and long time employees who care. I like all their food and eat it often. Accomadates from carry out, drive thru, or charter bus full of college kids. Not a huge dining room, not especially beautiful but always clean and gets high scores on the important health department... More
