One word, YUK! My family went here in June and the pizza was bland, the crust doughy...I like my pizza flavorful and crust crispy. Maybe it was a bad night for these guys but unless I don't want papa murphy's I won't be going back for awhile.

For pizza, Italian or sandwiches there is no better value than Gondolier. Nice wait staff that understands good service! Steak sandwich is to die for!

Never been to Knoxville before, only here on day, so we used TripAdvisor to pick a place for dinner. A number of reviews from locals who had been here multiple times gave this family-owned and operated Italian restaurant rave reviews so we thought we'd try it. We were not disappointed - this restaurant was FANTASTIC!!! We ordered the bruschetta appetizer... More

Best of the local Gondoliers. The portion sizes are huge, we always have leftovers! Recommend the eggplant parmesan, gyro, any pizza. We eat here a couple times a month (at least) and keep coming back for the great food.

Gondolier has never let us down, from the burger, to the salads and our favorite, the white chicken pizza ! The unlimited bread sticks are amazing !

Stop here all the time. Excellent food with large portions at a reasonable price. I recommend the Chicken Parmesan, Pizza and Gyro salad. Breadsticks that come with every meal are delicious also. Not a ton of gluten free options, but they will substitute the rice for pasta if you ask them to on each dish. Definitely worth a try!

Have not eaten here in years, they have large portions and good tasting food but when an employee left the restroom without washing his hands I never would go back.

Been to the Gondolier many times. The food quality is consistently good. Great desserts too! If you like garlic, get the melted garlic butter rather than or in addition to, the marinara sauce for the bread sticks.
