The fantastic service makes
The 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!

Truly wonderful. 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.

Great 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!

Our visit to La Gondola was
Our 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!

I 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.

Never go to the one on Belmont.
Never go to the one on Belmont. Food is inconsistent and service is the worst.

Don't be Deceived!
It was my first time going to this restaurant. It was located in a strip mall and I thought it was not going to be a pleasant place. But as I walked up to the door and went inside, it was nice, cozy, romantic, intimate and a definite gem. The service was AWESOME, the food was FANTASTIC and FLAVORFUL! I will definitely be going back. The prices are very reasonable for the huge portion sizes, you will not leave hungry.

Can't Wait To Go Again!
Stopped by for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The food was fantastic - from the appetizer through dessert. Generous portions, very good service, met the owner/chef Andy who is very hospitable. The La Gondola salad and La Gondola chicken are stand outs, and their marinara sauce is excellent. The pistachio gelato is the best we've had. There are only about six or seven tables as they do a very large carry out/delivery business. Next time we'd like to try their pizza.

Like Going Home
Our go-to spot for a quiet Italian dinner. Dee's service is the best, and we feel like we're are going "home" to see family. Our favorite dishes are the Rigatoni Basciola, and the Grigliata di Pesce. No, don't expect fresh seafood, but overall it's really flavorful and delicious. Any dish with the cream tomato sauce is excellent. Some specials include the crab stuffed gnocchi in tomato cream sauce. Notable wines for $28/bottle, especially the Primitivo.

I love this resutrant and
I love this resutrant and have been coming for years, although I have a complaint for the first time ever. The recentally changed the menu so over half of the selections are not on the dining in menu anymore which really was annoying. Also, they used to offer a soup or salad with your meal, which again is not offered now. This place is a gem, the food is outstanding and the waiter D is great....but go back to the old menu!!!!!!! And start offerning salad again. Us regulars miss them!
