We went here for dinner, I had the manicotti with eggplant parmesan and it was just okay. The taste was kinda bland. Needs some more seasoning or something. My wife had meatballs with italian sausage and sauce. The meatballs didn't have much taste to it. The sausage, however was very good. Another thing that turned me off was that they didn't keep the carpeted floor clean. Lots of crumbs and other stuff under and around the tables. There was only one person to wait on all the tables, bring out the food, and keep the drinks full. She was doing a good job keeping the people happy and they should have had someone else keeping the floor and tables clean. Not keeping the place clean can turn you off before you even have anything to eat.

I ordered a large pepperoni pizza from Gondola's and I would've been better off ordering from the Little Caesar's right next door in K-Mart! And for the record, I find chain pizza restaurants like Little Sleazers to be disgusting and unpalatable!! The pizza was swimming with grease for two reasons: they used too much pepperoni to top the pie and the quality of the meat and cheese was very poor. The pizza was so greasy that when I lifted a slice out of the box, the sloppy mess of slightly congealed cheese and pepperoni detached from the crust and slid off - leaving a limp, soggy, saggy crust in my hand. I tried this place once and that was enough. Even with mopping the pools of grease off of the top of the pizza with paper towels, I still got heartburn. Never again!

This is great place to go for lunch. The food is good. It is really a simply furnished place and wouldn't want to go for a dinner.
