Bon Appetit5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian DelightI have been to La Gondola several times and am never disappointed. The food is fresh, superb, authentic and reasonably priced. The service is impeccable. You haven't seen remarkable service until you've been served by Dee. There are only 6 tables which makes for a great, intimate dining experience. If you have a larger group of people don't let it keep you from this wonderful dining experience. You can go to their other location on Belmont as it is much larger.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLinda MBest Meat Sauce I heve had although everything there was excellent!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur visit to La Gondola wasOur visit to La Gondola was inspired by a Groupon and we will definitely be going back! Not only was our waiter witty and charming he was helpful in providing a couple wine tastes before I decided on one. The food is delicious (pasta cooked perfectly to an al dente, light batter on the calamari, and great greens in the salad - none of that iceberg or romiane stuff that so many places give you when the meal comes with a side salad) and there is more of it than necessary but made for a great leftover lunch the next day. We will be back to try the pizza and the risotto soon!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and quaint location.Great food and quaint location. I like the food better at this location than Belmont. We had 6 people in our group and it was great to have wine and talk plus the music selection was really great. Don't be scared off by the fact that it is in a strip mall. Gnocci and rigatoni are great!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMbest Italian food ever! Servicebest Italian food ever!

Even though it is very small and intimate at this location (which I didn't realize), they are very kid-friendly and the service was fantastic.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe fantastic service makesThe fantastic service makes the restaurant a neighborhood gem. The food is consistently good and the small wine list is interesting. For a neighborhood restaurant in a shopping mall you can't find anything better!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were fantastic!
