Legendary spot on Henderson St. with decent food and great sandwiches. I stopped in the other day for a Torpedo and loaf of their signature bread. A bit pricy for lunch but if you only treat yourself to one lunch out a week as we do, make LaGondola one of your monthly stops.

We love the torpedos with mayo. We go often for a lite Saturday lunch and the girls like to sit in the same booth everytime.

This has been a family favorite for years!!! If ever I am in the area I go. The number one thing I order is a torpedo. Its a sandwich on their bread with Italian salami, ham, cheese, lettuce, and you put mustard and mayo on it. I get the combo with chips and a drink. You can also get their... More

Always stop by when going back "home" to visit from Florida. We order the family feast and can't say enough good things. The torpedo sandwiches are made with sweet bread that is buttered and grilled. We always get a half gallon of sauce to take back to Florida.

We tried to ask for pesto sauce and the staff had never heard of it. That should sum it up for you. I would recommend for a cheap way to feed a huge group, but if you just boil your own spaghetti and buy a couple jars of Ragu, it's the same quality.

Excellent and friendly. The bread is to die for. Baked fresh. The building is a bit out dated but we go for the food and take home to eat usually.

Each time I go to Galesburg, I have to drop by La Gondola and pick up the Family Feast to-go. It consist of a half gallon of spaghetti & meat sauce, a loaf of garlic bread, a nice big sub sandwich and a 32 oz. fountain drink. Then I usually order a couple of loaves of their bread because it... More
