This restaurant was OK. I think the one in Longmont is better, friendlier wait staff. My dish was OK but my husband's pizza was not hot.
Our server, Ian, was very nice and fairly efficient, for our group of eight family members.
He seemed a bit overworked. He had several other tables in the area, and was not as prompt with service as we would have liked. Our niece was very tired after auditioning with the schools of music at DU and CU. I was anxious to get her fed, so she could rest before her flight the next day. The food was good, although the chef was unable to prepare a favorite of mine, which is no longer on the menu. Please consider adding pesto encrusted salmon salad, when the menu is next re-written. It is an old favorite from several of your previous locations. Our family has enjoyed the Gondolier at each of its locations, since it was on Broadway. Our favorite was the 28th and just south of Valmont!
We will visit again. Sue B.
Decor could use an update, but we go there for the food! They stuffed 6 of us in a booth that really should hold 4. Food - awesome and the homemade pasta is awesome!
Have enjoyed Gondolier since on Broadway in the 60's & delighted to have you in Longmont. See you there!
This restaurant is a long time favorite; we've been eating at the Gondolier for about 50 years, and the food and service have remained excellent and consistent. The spaghetti and ravioli are the best in Boulder, and the other Italian specialties are also delicious and interesting. This is a great place to relax, have fun with pals, and enjoy a really good meal. It's one of our favorite Boulder restaurants!
This was my first time there, and I was taking out a friend who had long lived in Boulder before moving away for her birthday. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, especially the home made spaghetti. I thought the sauce was amazing and much better than anything else I have had around here. Highly impressed, and will definitely be visiting again in the future.
If you going for the spaghetti, which is one my husband's favorites, you won't be disappointed. If you need gluten free options, the options are limited and much less tasty. This time I ordered the gluten free mushroom pizza which was not even edible.
This is where the locals go... Need I say more? This is an authentic Italian restaurant. This is a great place to take a date or the family. Great atmosphere. We have been here multiple times and never had a poor server. Tonight 2e did not enjoy the server but she could have had a bad day. That is the only negative I can say. Great place
A very solid option for classic Italian fare. In a strip mall, but nice inside (and table service; no ordering at a counter or anything). Nicely decorated, clean and modern and casual but still nice enough for a night out. Great for family meals, with a variety of booths and tables, very good service and staff has always been friendly and accommodating. We discovered great happy hour prices on a limited menu of food--including their delicious garlic knots and their homemade spaghetti ($5) and salads. There are also things like all-you-can-eat spaghetti on Tuesday night (I think), so check their website for deals. A large and varied menu sure to satisfy even picky eaters (and kids) in your group--nothing super innovative or gourmet, but very good food and service. The pizza was also good and fresh. I'm reviewing the Boulder location, but there is a new one in Longmont.
I have been there before, and the manager was friendly and food was decent. The other night, was not a pleasant experience at all and probably won't bother going back. I rarely write reviews, even if bad, but the fact that the food was not even decent was terrible. The hostess upon arrival, was not very welcoming, & didn't even appear to hear that I had made a reservation. I understand that all special requests upon reservation can be given, but she sat us in the middle of the room, when there were clearly plenty of tables to the side. The server was decent, but not extra friendly.
Appetizers were good, but it'd be outrageous to mess up garlic bread. I ordered the special shrimp & scallop dinner. For $20, I expected far more than some clearly frozen shrimp & scallops thrown in a pan. No flavor & the risotto ball was absolutely not risotto & tasted like a donut. My companion ordered a calzone, which literally had about 5 pieces of sausage, and very little filling.
We will not be back.
We heart the Gondolier! Excellent, crowd pleasing food. Friendly and professional service.
We always have a great meal at The Gondolier! The homemade pasta is so delicious and so are the garlic knots. We look forward to going back the next time we are in Boulder!
We had a great meal as well as good desserts and wine/cocktails. The server was extremely nice and we enjoyed our birthday celebration.
This restaurant had a great Italian aroma of freshness upon entering the establishment.
The bread knots and dipping sauce along with our salads were good. Unfortunately, the main courses all bombed because their in house freshly made pasta was thick, pasty, and bland ruining all the main courses.
Our drinks arrived first and the cocktails were awesome. The food arrived quickly, piping hot and delicious. The servers were attentive and pleasant. The Gondolier has become the best neighborhood get-together! And how wonderful that they opened another restaurant in Longmont! Way to go! This is the best spaghetti in town.
