The fresh ingredients and the care taken to individually prepare each dish make this place a winner!

We've been regulars at the Ashland location for a long time - great food, wonderful service (especially if D is working) and a small restaurant experience. We love that they are open to customizing the dishes to specific good!

Place is quite small, maybe 6 tables. The food is genuine Italian and I think they may one of the best thin crust pizzas in town. We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday on cinco de mayo. Dee served the food timely and with his usual flair, couldn't ask for a more attentive & friendly server. Food we ordered was delicious and served piping hot. Hidden gem in the city, if you can't dine in order takeout.

La Gondola is our go to restaurant. The restaurant is small, so make a reservation. The food is always good and D is the best waiter!

We had a great dinner with excellent food last Saturday.. Everything was great as always..
My 10-year old stepson joined us for the first time at La Gondola to celebrate his dad's birthday, and he absolutely LOVED his chicken parmesan as well as the tentacles of the grilled calamari and my lobster ravioli.. and this kid is a picky eater.
I was, however, a little saddened to see that my favorite dishes were no longer available as the menu seems to have shrunk considerably since the last time we were here last fall.

The reservation was tricky because we weren't aware there were multiple locations but the food was excellent and the service was great, too!

I have been going to La Gondola for many years. It's gotten a bit pricey for what it is.

We love our friend/Server D! He is a positive friendly and entertaining person. Andy is a lucky business owner to have him!

My and my fiance come here at least once a year, cause we live in the burbs, and we love it every single time. The waiter D remembers us and makes sure to take care of us whenever we are in the restaurant. We are actually going to use them to cater some food for our wedding in May.
