The daily specials were a good deal. The prices at this place aren't bad, and the people are very friendly. The side salad was huge and very good. It could be a meal in itself. I got the pizza and it wasn't anything special, the cheese wasn't fresh mozzarella which I think could have made it better.

I ordered the Alfredo with no chicken to go. Which should be a simple dish and any herb should be a garnish. However, the sauce was swimming in some powder-fine herb. It almost over powered any other flavor. Unfortunately, the only other flavor (other than a hint of garlic) was a strange metallic after taste. The garlic bread that came... More

We love Gondolas! From the large slices of pizza, the salads and spinach ravioli. There are so many good things on the menu it is hard to choose from.

Everything is good her but I particularly like the Chicken Alfredo, the Torpedo Sub and pizza. They stay busy but you get pretty fast service. I usually get take out

While the food was spectacular the ordering experience was a little off. We had never been there and weren't sure what to do. Apparently you have to order at the counter then go sit down. They brought or salads which were fantastic and the pasta dishes were huge and really good but why not just have the guest sit down... More

This restaurant in a strip shopping center is near KMart and Ingles grocery store. While it's nothing fancy, the servings are ample, the salad is one of my favourites, and it's my go-to place when I need something but not pizza. The owners are generous in the community as well, frequently offering sports teams, scouts a ticket for a family... More

Had a takeout pizza and salads for a late lunch. Pizza had too much sauce which tasted like jarred pizza sauce. Pepperoni was tasty but a little too plentiful. The salads were average and over-dressed. Better than most chains in the area. Would have to try eating in to see if could be better.

Everything is good, presentation is good, bear in mind this is not expensive. The Italian spaghetti dinner will have enough left over to take home. Good flavors, plenty of sauce.

Decided on a pizza, was not disappointed at all - got one with lots of toppings - it was huge, enough for 2 more meals after what we ate in the restaurant. Friends also had great sandwiches. Have been there before but never tried the pizza but now one of the favorites in area to enjoy a large pie!

Gondolas looks like a nice Italian restaurant from the outside, but upon entering we were surprised to find a short counter with two clerks and scattered tables. Looked like we were supposed to order at the counter and carry to the table ourselves. I asked one of the two clerks if they had table service, but she just handed us... More
