“Good food and value”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

The torpedo sandwiches are great, the bread is so good and fresh. We ordered spaghetti as well and it was a very large portion. And plenty of meat sauce. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again. The family pleaser is a terrific value too. This being said, I did witness an employee reaching Into a bucket of spaghetti bare handed, no
Gloves... Kind of put me off. The employees were not especially friendly, and while we were there, several people came and left , and no one ever came out to wipe off the tables.

“Must stop for a sandwhich”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Every time I come home one of the first places I go to eat is LaGondola. The torpedos are amazing and the bread is much better than Avanti's. The salads also rock and so do the pasta dishes. Truthfully I have probably ate at this LaGondola a dozen times and it has always been great. Only draw back in the small inside eating area but a plus is the call ahead drive through!
