This little Italian restaurant has big Italian flavor. This local spot and icon since the 70s brings authentic Italian dishes and large portions. My favorite items are the pizza and lasagna, but you can't go wrong with whatever you choose. The food is close to home cooking. There is beer and wine, which compliments a good Italian meal. The place... More

We have loved this place for 30 plus years! Affordable Italian favorites. The pizza and spaghetti actually have flavor, unlike so many other places we try. Must have is the torpedo sandwich, it can't be duplicated!

Always busy-always great. I have been a faithful customer since the 70's. It's a family owned business and a local favorite. I recognize at least one person every time. The Lasagna is a little different in taste than any other I have tasted. MMM-Good! The pizza is my favorite of any pizza I have ever tasted.

This place has been a La Mirada staple for more years than I can remember. It is family owned and run and it is consistently great food.

Had two bad experiences here. First time ordered take for lunch. Called in order before noon. So, I hoped food would be extra fresh. To my surprise the pastrami meat sandwich was OVERCOOKED. Not fresh at all. We decided to give it another chance. Worst service ever. Lots of young ladies working the cash register and completly clueless and RUDE.... More

If you love Italian Food then Gondolas is your place. Lasagna and pizzas are very good but service can sometimes be iffy. During busy dinner or lunch times people behind the counter are not always smiling. Not great atmosphere but the food is worth the wait and is always plentiful. Sometimes very slow if you order take out -- seems... More

This evening (1/22/2016) my wife and I decided to go to Gondolas for dinner. We have not been there in 2 months due to poor performance the last time we ate there. Let me preface my comments by stating that we have been customers of Gondolas for 30 Years. Upon arriving at the restaurant we walked in and noticed 10... More

We've eaten at Gondola many times over the years, but it's been a while. We chose to celebrate this Christmas as a family with Gondola cuisine. It's so good we're surprised they haven't been featured on a tv show. Their pepperoni pizza and fettuccine Alfredo are always favorites of our family. They have a great anti pasto salad, too. It's...

We go here as often as we can. The pizza here is great. It's the only one my husband will buy. The calzones are good as well. Staff is friendly, but be ready for a long line, it's a busy place. The atmosphere isn't great, but the food well makes up for it. We usually do take out and usually... More

It all started 43 years ago when Josephine & Sam (Onorato) Agrusa first opened. Since then, Gondola Pizza has served original fresh homemade Italian food. Together with their 3 children, they worked from 4 a.M. To late hours, 7 days a week. As of today, they still work. Some in the office, some in the kitchen and some have opened their own business (North Carolina). All with the same goal - work hard and make the best food. We at Gondola Pizza, owners and workers, thank you for all your support through all these years, and we will be here for many years to come, always making homemade fresh Itailian food
