Nice Italian Dinner at a Reasonable Price

The entire staff was very nice and accommodating. We had a large group and did get there early. While there is not a lot of large seating, they were able to get us back to back booths. The food was very good with a reasonable portion. Great flavor. As our meal went on, the place filled up so is... read 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!

They have a great selection of food from steak to pizza. All the food we ordered was good. We ate there twice in the week we were there. And would go there again,

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!

First time we ate here was 40 years ago. They have gotten better. We split a large pizza that was half the special and half meat lovers. Took about a half hour to get it. They do it all from scratch and the toppings were great. Crust was good.

Gondola has real good pizza, but they always accidently burn their pizza. They have great service, but they always burn the pizza. I would recommend this if YOUR ARE NOT A PICKEY EATER.

Excellent food, great location at the Cookeville exit on I-40 and professional service. A great formula, especially for weary travelers.
