I was in the mood for pizza and not your chain brands. So I thought I give this a try since it was close to my hotel. I'll say the salad was right out of the bag good, which means it wasn't. The pizza was ok. Definitely not the best but not the worst either. It is homemade crust which... More

We had great service, great food, the menu was a little long but I won't complain about too many choices, the pizza was amazing as well as the dessert and not only was my meal great but everything I saw going out to other tables made me want to try everything I saw.

We ate there twice, both times had something different, we tried the pizza, spaghetti and baked ziti. All were excellent. The baklava sundae desert was wonderful!

Nine of us ate at Gondola tonight. We were in town for a H.O.G. Motorcycle Rally. Orders varied from sausage and pepperoni calzone to lasagna, baked manicotti, baked ziti and so on. All of the food can out at about the same time. It was all hot and tasty. The restaurant was packed, but service was great and cordial. Looks... More

I have eaten a lot of different things from the huge menu and I have never had a bad meal! The service is always top of the line and the owners are very nice and are always checking on tables and customers!
