“Quick, attentive and quality service & food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

We were on the road trying to avoid chains and fast food restaurants, and we came upon this place as we were getting hungry. We wanted something quality, yet fast- and we hit the jackpot! We walked in, asked to make our order to-go and they had it ready in less than 10 min. While we were ordering, an employee named Nick was more than helpful and attentive. He went above and beyond, which is something not a lot of servers do. He suggested the perfect option for us and was very flexible when it came to making adjustments that we wanted. Not only was the service superb.... The food was excellent-- salads were fresh, pasta was fresh, and breadsticks and marinara were way better than Olive Garden's! We totally recommend this place for anyone traveling past Lake City and wanting a quick and delicious meal while on the road.

“Food make me sick service was horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Me and my husband where trying to give this restaurant a second chance after months of not being there since our last experience was so horrible. We had liked go for there wings and white pizza. But the last time we went the quality of there food seemed cheap and a little pricey breather get a pizza at dominos. Service was horrible thee server brought our appetizer out at the same time as our food and that's after waiting almost 45 min to eat go somewhere else!

“Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Gondolier is one of our usual choices when going out to eat. They are consistently good but often crowded. We've tried most of the menu items and really like the Super Veggie pizza.

“Good Food, Foolish Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

My family and I ate here on Saturday evening and were surprised to see there was no wait at 5:30PM. The menu gives you plenty of options for just about everyone. It was a unique mix of Italian and Greek Cruisine. I had the Alfredo Tortellini with Chicken which was good, but they could have left some sauce off. My one daugther had a custom pizza which was fantastic. We highly recommend the pizza.

The Staff is in desperate need of a manager to enforce policy. The servers were running around snapping each other with napkins and towels. Throwing water at one another and in general just screwing around as customers waited for food and drinks. My daugthers pizza came out 10 minutes after the rest of the food. The pizza cook was also one of those playing games, I guess he forgot to make the pie.
