Certainly inexpensive, a friendly staff, and clean environment with standard "Italian" decor await here. A Caesar salad was fresh and good. The pizzas are available in three sizes. A personal-sized pizza with pepperoni was fairly good, while the lasagna was less so, overly cheesed and without much other flavor coming through. Prices are low, with lunch-time prices giving an out-the-door... More

The Gondolier is very warm and cozy inside with charming decorations, and a friendly staff. However, the food is just plain bland. It seems like they do not use any salt, pepper, or seasonings it in their food at all. For example, the breadsticks are just plain bread: no butter, garlic, or anything on them which makes them taste like... More

The gyros can't be beat. A pitcher of ice cold beer is very reasonably priced. The desserts are out of this world.

Thought we'd try it again... Once again, customer service was TERRIBLE and the food wasn't much better.. We've gone 3 times now, and each time it gets worse... Avoid this place..

When your not sure what you want you can always go to Gondolier, they have really good food and a great selection. We like to go here when we have company come in to town, it's not expensive, and they have something everyone will eat. They get busy so don't be surprised it you have to wait.

Someone suggested we give the pizza from this Italian restaurant a try so we finally did. Really pleased with the results. The crust was cooked perfect, a good amount of toppings and real cheese, the jind that pulls and is chewy. I am not a big Italian food eater so I am not sure about other items.

Our regular stop for pizza, or gyros. And of course the towering slabs of cake. The portions are so large I rarely make it dessert.

Very young teenage staff, who obviously only had a job because their parents made them! Service was deplorable, felt very ignored.. Stood at the counter as several waitstaff passed by, finally a girl who had passed us by at least twice finally decided to ring us up after she decided to laugh and have a party in the kitchen with...

Best Italian restaurant in the area. Service was really good. Haven't ever ordered anything we didn't like. Parking is tight.
